NLQ Review: The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOkay NLQers. I know this book has not much to do with what we talk about here at No Longer Quivering, but bear with me.

Quoting Quiverfull: Grooming Your Pubes Is A Sin?

by John Piper of The Counsel on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood as quoted by Newslo - Pastor John Piper: "Women Who Wax Their Private Parts Are Hurting God's Work"ETA: Apparently Newslo is another one of those 'satire' sites that aren't clearly marked as satire.

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 38-41 Yes, we are still learning about the ways men need women. I know you're excited, so let's jump right in. Text, as always, is in purple. I Need Her to Balance Me EmotionallyAgain, we guys don't like to admit that we are emotional beings. It is quite obvious that the gals are 90% emotion and 10% adulterated reason. We fellows pride ourselves on being logical and objective. But keep in mind that anger is an emotion. Irritability and grouchiness are emotions. Men are just as emotional as women: we just have a male pride that will not let us publicly express weakness or vulnerability. I am not suggesting that there is anything … [Read more...]
