Quoting Quiverfull: Time to Overthrow Heathens?

by Colin Campbell from Above Rubies Meat For Men - Now Is The Time!Sounds like Colin is calling for armed revolt against the government and/or non-believers. Scary. I realize he's referring to prayer, but the language sounds almost like he's calling for more than prayer. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Express Displeasure To Your Child?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Six Ways Parents Destroy Their Children Without Trying It is a vicious cycle. A child’s bad behavior provokes looks of displeasure and looks of displeasure provoke bad attitudes leading to bad behavior. I have said it so many times. If you cannot train your children to do as they ought, it is far better to lower your standards and enjoy them as they are than to allow your looks of displeasure to become the norm. A kid may grow up to be undisciplined and self-willed, but there is no reason to add to it a feeling of being unloved and unable to please. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Stay Poor?

Ladies Against Feminism has republished a piece from the Mercador by Nicole King called Marriage linked to income increase. If I'm reading this right it sounds like LAF and the original author are saying that a) get married to the first living breathing man with prospects or education to avoid poverty and b) dooming non-white women to poverty by the statistics used by the Pew Research Center and the New York Times. Classy, LAF, so so classy.. … [Read more...]

When Church Hurts Part 6

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsThough we never had a meeting with Elliot or the leadership, I was again asked to teach a class and was also helping with a conference that our church was hosting in the spring.  When it came time for the conference, I had an opportunity to sit down with the speaker for a few minutes and, being a man of great discernment, he asked me some leading questions and I found myself telling him a bit of my story. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 42 – 64, ‘Men and Marriage’

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons This was the first chapter that the book went flying. Honestly, I’m surprised I got to chapter three before that happened. This chapter was just … frustrating as hell to read. There’s so many problems with this chapter, and I’m going to spend my time today focusing on one of them, but it is important to at least point out a few other glaring problems. … [Read more...]

When Church Hurts Part 4

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsDuring all of these years, I would come to church, sit four or five rows from the pulpit, right on the center aisle, and listen to Elliot and others preach grace, forgiveness, reconciliation, and restoration. Elliot preached and preached. I wept and wept openly. I could not sing. I could not so much as close my eyes in prayer. I could not stand for the blessing at the end of the service. I knew that no matter how much Elliot preached those words to everyone else in the congregation, they were not for me. And I would email him and tell him as much. Without response. … [Read more...]
