Quoting Quiverfull: Marry So Others Are Not Confused?

Found on Ladies Against Feminism and written by Tim Challies of Challies.com - Why Marriage is Better Than CohabitationEditor's note: Most of the reasons to marry instead of live together in this article aren't bad ones. Some are the same arguments I've cited in my review of Vaughn Ohlman's book as a reason not to do marriage his way without a marriage license. Things such as legally protecting the rights of inheritance for the surviving spouse and protects the children born of the relationship if one party or the other decides to abandon the family. Those are good reasons to marry. However, getting married to make everyone around you that cannot figure out what your relationship … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Upside Down World – LAF Now Claiming Unwed Pregnancies Not Sinful?

by Chad Ashby as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Brothers and Sisters, Unwed Pregnancy is Not a SinEditor's note: While I agree with Ashby that there should not be blaming, shaming or condemnation when someone turns up pregnant out of wedlock it's  not been my experience that places like PRCs or even the pages of LAF are very safe places. This is exactly the kind of ridiculous hypocrisy that the world looks down upon in the churches, saying one thing, doing exactly the opposite.  Even the places that treat unwed expectant mothers well tend to turn and blame them the moment the baby is born and the mother attempts to sign up for any social network benefits. You cannot have it both w … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Is The Biggest Sin?

by Dale Ahlquist from Crisis Magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - G. K. Chesterton: It's Not Gay, and it's Not MarriageEditor's note: Interesting how in the world of Evangelical Quiverfull the Catholics as a group are considered not even Christians or saved. They are despised, looked down upon, treated like dirt, but let one of them state something that lines up with Quiverfull theology and they are quoted as if they were also part of the Evangelical Quiverfull movement instead of despised persons. They hold their nose and quote the Catholic. Quiverfull is filled with dangerous contradictions like this. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Children Should Be The Most Important Thing In Your Life?

by Rachel Jankovic from Desiring God - Motherhood is a Calling as quoted and renamed by Ladies Against Feminism - Where We Rank Our Children InsteadEditor's note: While I agree in theory that children have to be a big priority in your life if you chose to have them, it's not your life's 'calling' or what you were primarily put here on this planet to do. Having children is a biological driven urge, or what society expects of them. It's not a 'calling'. Saying that those not in the 'Biblical culture' place children below 'Picking your toes' is downright insulting to those of us who did a decent job raising our children. There are just as many, if not more, great parents outside of the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Which One of Us Has Cognitive Dissonance Here?

by Author Unknown from Simple Unhooked Living - RFID: Where The Rubber Meets The Christian RoadEditor's note: Found this blog through it being quoted by Ladies Against Feminism in support of no childhood vaccinations and no big government interference into home-based businesses they love so much. While sustainable living isn't necessarily a bad thing, in fact it might be the thing our nation needs more of, the conspiracy theories at this site range from laughable to downright frightening. This bit quoted come from a rant about how the RFID implantable chips are the Mark of the Beast, the "666" mentioned in the Bible ushering in the End Times. We all know how much the QF crowd loves to … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Disaster as Divine Disapproval?

by Vaneetha Rendall from Desiring God and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Greatest Gift Is God Himself - Is Suffering a Sign of Divine Disapproval?Editor's note: For a change here's an article from Desiring God that is usually reasonable. The author and her husband suffered the loss of a baby who started having problems in utero. The usual suspects starting saying and doing the usual things about praying. The author believed the teaching that suffering was merely God's disapproval, a divine swat on the behind to show you're doing something wrong. How many times in the QF movement have we seen people blaming all sorts of things happening on God's disapproval: 9/11? Tsunamis and … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Only For One Man & One Woman?

by Ken Ham from Answers in Genesis and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Why is Marriage Just For Two?Editor's note: It always amuses me when Ham and LAF start banging away about one man and one woman being the Biblical standard for marriage when there was incest, polygamy, marriage after rape, wives and concubines and all sorts of suspicious couplings apparently approved of by God in the Old Testament. There's no evidence in the Bible to support what they are saying is the one true marriage. I love how comedian Betty Bowers outlines all the different types of Biblical marriages. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Television is Pushing ‘Gay Agenda’?

by Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis originally from his Blog as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Sexual Liberation Movement Failed Us. We're Not SurprisedEditor's note: Television really isn't a medium that has ever completely formed and informed the morals of this nation. Most of the time it is a mirror reflecting  whatever social issue will get the most viewers, even if the issue isn't as pressing as it is shown to be on the tiny screen. All you have to do is look at shows like 'Jerry Springer' to see the axiom of whatever grabs the ratings. ABC family showing a gay teen kiss is just doing whatever will generate the most viewers, which translates into more advertising dollars. It's … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If Women Ran The World They’d Just Be Aping Men?

by Elizabeth Scalia from First Things and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - First Things: If Women Ran The WorldEditor's note: In which LAF accuse ladies with feminist tendencies of being like men and wanting to replace men. I don't believe that is the goal of feminism but I do know if women ran the world at least women would make the same wages as men for the same job instead of less, like they do now. Plus, they are claiming you shouldn't make an idol of the family? That's exactly what LAF does in most of their postings! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Synthetic Children Killing Off Motherhood?

by Hattie Hart and Alana Newman from The Federalist in response to an interview with fashion designers Dolce & Gabbanna in Italy's Panorama Magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Synthetic Children, Spiritual Orphans, and the Obliteration of Mothers.Editor's note: The latest thing to enrage the ladies at LAF is the idea that homosexual people can have children via reproductive technology. In what way does allowing others of different sexual orientations mean the death of traditional motherhood? It doesn't. Their verklempting has more to do with the fact that it's not just one mother and one father raising a child in a Christian household. They want to mandate what is the … [Read more...]
