Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Blogging Is IGNORING Your Family?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Blogging and Neglecting Your FamilyEditor's note: Oh this is just too toxic to completely unpack in one posting, but it's giving off the vibe that Lori thinks only older ladies can or should blog because she's feeling threatened in some way. Huge followings? Books? Touring the country giving speeches? Sounds more like the Green Eyed Monster of envy than any real worry about the unBiblicalness of blogging. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Only You Can Do the Housework?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - The Consternation Over HouseworkEditor's note: The beginning of this piece Lori was talking about how something she wrote about women only doing the housework went viral. I cannot find what she's talking about, but it doesn't matter since she's apparently repeating it here again. While she's right that loading and unloading a dishwasher and folding clothes are very quick and easy tasks, it's not clear anywhere in the Bible that either are GENDERED tasks like she claims. Here there are times when my husband has done the dishes and I've mowed the grass. Last night he scrubbed the toilet and vacuumed our guest bedroom while I picked a ton of produce … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Boyfriend is Supposed to Lead You to Christ?

by Raegan Thornhill from Delighted in Him - Wait for the Man Who Preaches You the GospelEditor's note: The purity and courtship crowd come up with some of the most confining rules for friendships and relationships. We see how well this works out when you look at the large number of unmarried daughters like the Botkin girls and look at the fact that Christians have higher divorce rates than non-believers. Why not base your relationship on mutual interests, love and attraction and not worry so much about if you are being lead to Christ? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – How to be a ‘Bad’ Church Member?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church – 3 Ways to be a Bad Church MemberEditor's note: Sorry, but there are many reasons people might not want to socialize with people from church more than saying 'Hi, how are ya!' in the narthex. Many fundamentalist churches are filled with people that live such small lives in limited circles that the business of everyone else is upper most in their minds. I've seen tremendous 'prayer-gossip' through the years, those that pretend to be your friend and then when they hear something about you, or you shame something about yourself they then share that information under the guise of 'praying for you' like this sequence from the movie " … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Suffering Makes You More Holy?

by Anonymous from Sow With Vision - Sowing While Suffering | Bitter WatersEditor's note: This is another one of those toxic reoccurring themes in Quiverfull: that suffering is somehow redemptive. Right after they tell you that your illness is punishment from God from unconfessed sin or generational curse. Or perhaps you weren't using the right essential oils or you drank too much soda. While there's only a little blaming for the suffering in this piece the thought that suffering and serious affliction somehow makes one more holy and closer to God is just as toxic and wrong. … [Read more...]
