Quoting Quiverfull: Keep Your Children From Worldly Temptation?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Can You Do It?Editor's note: One thing you can count on from Nancy Campbell, she stays consistently on message. Too bad her message is always 'You are not a good enough mother unless you are doing all the things I outline' which, in my mind, translates to something close to 'The beatings will continue until morale improves' Yeah, like that works. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Accept the Bad Things to be Happy?

quotingquiverfull

by Sarah Mae at Fitting Perfect Into Fallen - I Have Bad Thoughts About My HusbandEditor's note: Why is it that in the world of Quiverfull, Evangelicals, Fundamentalist and Christian Patriarchy no one ever thinks to just come right out and TALK about their issues or feelings or struggles WITH the person they are struggling with instead of repressing their angst and pasting a smile on their face? Life outside that bubble is so much more simplistic and fulfilling if for no other reason than you can express your thoughts and feelings without feeling shame. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Pleading With Your Children Over Their Sin

quotingquiverfull

by Tim Challies from Challies.Com - Help! My Kids Are Looking At Porn!Editor's note: While there is some good advice in this article, such as not heaping your child with shame after you find them looking at internet porn, there's also some pretty less than perfect responses too. In the Evangelical Quiverfull world where everything is hypersexualized it's considered a sin to have normal childhood curiosity. So the parents go right into over reaction mode. Is this healthy? There are much better ways to handle catching your child looking at porn than most of this.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Demons and Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Johnathan Parnell from John Piper's Desiring God blog - Parenting Means Wrestling DemonsEditor's note: There's just so much to dislike in Mr. Parnell's article on parenting and the demonic that it's hard to pick only one awful quote. The main message running through the piece seems to be that the devil is there to trip you up in parenting your children no matter what parenting style you pick and that demons hate children. Love your children, but don't love them too much seems to be the core message. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Cuts Crime Rates?

quotingquiverfull

From Ladies Against Feminism - The Effects of Marriage Versus Co-Habitation on CrimeEditor's note: Believe this piece originated from Mercator.net but the editor at LAF screwed up the links while posting. So I'm unable to determine exactly what surveys or representative sampling the original author used to justify the statement that marriage means reduced crime rates. This talks about how Florida is about to decriminalize cohabitation and doesn't do anything to support the idea that marriage cuts crime rates. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Sexiest Thing You Can Say To Your Man?

quotingquiverfull

by Doug Johnson from Life Site - The sexiest thing my wife ever said to me...definitely isn't what you think it isEditor's note: This guy has a warped sense of what sexy is. I don't know too many people that would define it the same way and definitely not many men outside of Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull. Jaw drop. He thinks the sexiest thing his wife said to him was that she'd changed her mind about birth control and wanted her IUD out immediately so they could have more children. There is much in the article that is cringe-inducing, but this might just bet the worst part.... … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Modern Women Do Not Love Home?

quotingquiverfull

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Why Your Children Annoy You & Homemaking is BoringEditor's note: While we're just quoting the same small section that LAF is if you go to Kelly's blog and read what this dasterdly threat to home, hearth, children and commitment is you're going to laugh. Kelly is blaming The Internet for all the troubles at home. Yes, the same 'internet' that gave her a small measure of fame and provides money to her by the sales of her books and product. This is approaching Debi Pearl and Nancy Campbell level of 'do as I say, not as I do' shaming and blaming. Shame on her. The female cultural enforcers of Quiverfull a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Your Husband’s Obsessions?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - ObsessionsEditor's note: It seems what Debi is describing here is more 'hobby' than 'obsession' for most men who aren't Michael Pearl. The difference she doesn't understand it level of emotional commitment. Most guys I've known that like to hunt don't plan all week and spent a good portion of the family money on hunting before abandoning the family to hunt. Takes a special kind of indifference to others needs combined with caring only for your own desires to become as obsessed over a normally harmless hobby to be labeled 'Obsessional' … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Obsessions Editor's note: We'll be sharing this article in bits and pieces over the next few days since so much of it is so sheerly awful. It's one of the clearest examples of an over bearing husband's crummy behavior in the world of Christian Patriarch Movement and is rife with abusive behavior and explaining/minimizing that same behavior. Today Debi explains about Michael's hunting of those wascally wabbits. … [Read more...]
