Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists Substituting Government For Husbands?

by Meadow, one of Nancy Campbell's granddaughters from Above Rubies - A Husband or the Government?Editor's note: Looks like the illogical apple didn't fall far from the tree. Be sure to go to Above Rubies to read the entire post. I wish I could quote it in full here but there's not enough room. She starts out well, then veers into completely misunderstanding much of feminism. All the while claiming she 'loves' her feminist sisters out in the world. No, dear, feminism is not merely transferring some need to be cared for from a man to a government. It's more about not needing others to take care of you at all, about being fully an adult with the same rights of determination as male adults. … [Read more...]

Distinguishing Doctrine From Behavior

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceI recently pointed out the connection between the Great Commission “Bible-based cult” and Vision Forum through the person of Geoffrey Botkin. The Great Commission group (GC, GCM, GCI, GCAC, etc.) has been classified as a variant group that follows of the shepherding/discipleship/submission doctrine, terms with which many Christians still remain unfamiliar. For the benefit of all, I would like to define these terms in the next few blog posts. Botkin, former Administriative Assistant and business partner of the founder of a very cultic … [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: Part 7 – Michael Pearl Defending His Strawman?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Spank and Save a ChildEditor's note: Finally this load of copswallop is at an end. More blaming and shaming while claiming quite falsely that the movement's children will be hiring our poor undisciplined loser children (in his mind). Tell me again who's children are living in abject poverty yet claiming they are successful? He's doubling down on a lie. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fear Mongering in the New Year?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Wake UpEditor's note: Sounds like Nancy is taking over from the old fear mongering predictions of 'The 700 Club" Pat Robertson, or at least trying her best to sow fear. Just be glad I didn't share her awful poetry about not allowing the children to play in the house. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Women Prettier?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - On Why Christian Women Are PrettierEditor's note: Wilson tries to claim in this piece that Christian women are more beautiful because they were created as God's glory and that they keep this glory by their good works, not plastic surgery, not expensive products or good genetics but by works. Again, women reduced down to a small subset of their true potential. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Duggars Are Liberals & Death To All Molesters?

by Zsuzanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - My Thoughts on the DuggarsEditor's note: Zsu's solution? Kill all pedophiles. No therapy, no prison time, just execute them. What would Jesus say about that? Zsuzsanna's husband is Pastor Steven L. Anderson, you know, that nice man that called for all homosexuals to be killed last year so that AIDS would be wiped out. … [Read more...]
