Quoting Quiverfull: Throwing Shade on Korea, ISIS and Abortion Because Jesus?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Mourning Over What Grieves ChristEditor's note: Colin is in rare form in this post. He manages to order others to mourn for things, claims to know what makes Jesus mourn and manages to be racist, paranoid anti-government and blaming of others in four short paragraphs. That takes talent! (/sarcasm). Seriously, there a whole lot of judging, blaming and shaming in his words. Is it really necessary to say those things to ask others to do more intercessory prayer? … [Read more...]

You Will O-bey, Or You Will Be Exter-minated

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalOk, so the truth was bound to come out sooner or later... I have to confess to being a bit of a geek... just a bit...And so inevitably I couldn't help but discern the similarity between the Daleks' mantra of 'obey or be exterminated' and the 'submit or be excommunicated' way of operating espoused by some christians. Christians and Daleks with so much in common! Who would have thought? See what I did there ;) … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet ‘ – What Type of Girl am I?

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Compare Yourself to the ‘UnGodly’?

by Lisa Hallahan from A Lovely Calling - When You Become Jealous of the WorldEditor's note: I will agree with the author on one thing. Comparing or measuring yourself against others is a miserable way to live and you can never measure up to everyone. Be yourself and be happy in it. But, all this putting down of those that do not live exactly like them is one of the most hateful things in fundamentalism and evangelical Christianity. Love yourself, be yourself and extend that same freedom to everyone else.  Living in a emotional place where you don't have to judge everyone is also very freeing. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 Listening To Your Wife?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - I Need Her Counsel and JudgementEditor's note: This is almost enough to make you feel sorry for Michael's wife Debi Pearl, but knowing how Debi twists what happened to her and uses it to make others feel fear and guilt cancels out any sympathy points she might get for her husband admitting what an abusive jerk he has been. Sick relationship. His advice in the end might be good except for his suggestion to pretend to be humble and thoughtful. Pretend? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bless Your Husband or Else?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Are You Blessing Your Family Today?Editor's note: Nancy seems pretty obsessional about being beyond submitted to your husband. You have to bless him all the time according to Nancy-world. This message about being a 'blessing' isn't necessarily a bad one, I've found that a card or perfectly timed phone call can be just what's needed in the moment, but being that this is Nancy Campbell suggesting being the blessing you can count on this not being a suggestion, but a command. Like so much in Quiverfull those things that are good in the outside world becomes poisonous when it is ordered instead of given freely. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Having A C-Section Makes You Bitter?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of Steven L. Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Birth HypocrisyEditor's note: Zsuzsanna is upset today because people are talking and speculating over the birth of Jill Duggar Dillard's new baby boy Israel, trying to parse what that lone photo of the new family means. If she had a c-section, why it was a hospital birth instead of a home birth, ad infinitum... which is only natural considering every single aspect of this poor girl's life has been lived more years than not in the white hot glare of the television camera. Zsuzsanna fails to understand that when the average American sees someone over and over on television they become emotionally invested in … [Read more...]

Spotting Logical Fallacies and Propaganda Techniques

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much (more) GraceEditor's note: While this isn't a traditional NLQ SASBN member posting it bears posting here, if for no other reason than forewarned is forearmed. Even when you leave a harmful theology group the pressure to return and confirm will still be strong. You need to know their tricks. Want to see all these in action so you know what they look like? Try watching the recent HBO documentary on Scientology "Going Clear" … [Read more...]
