Quoting Quiverfull: God’s Slave?

Quoting

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Love SlaveEditor's note: Nancy seems to think that being a wife and mother is a sort of slavery instead of an expression of free will and love in our lives. How does that fit with her idea that being a mother and wife is the highest honor and only role for a woman? … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: The Dones?

boxinggloves

by Mark Sandlin from the Patheos blog The God Article - The Rise of 'The Dones' as the Church Kills Spiritual Community Mark is also the founder of The Christian LeftExcellent article and observations. Many of us from the former Quiverfull community are now part of 'The Dones', being told we were never 'real' Christians or we would have never walked away in the first place.  Predictably there are a few True Believers in the comments slinging Bible verses and hate. How about you, dear readers? Are you a SBNR, The Nones or part of The Dones? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism Lies?

F-Bombs-for-feminism

by Matt Walsh posted at both The Matt Walsh Blog and The Blaze - Feminism is PoisonNot linking to Matt's blog because I do not want to give him the hit traffic on his ads. He wrote this piece in reaction to the FkcH8 video of the little girls using the word 'Fuck' to make a point. Love it or hate it, the video  does tend to make you think. Unfortunately it's making Matt lie and purposely impugn the honest, hard working men and women of the Bureau of Labor Statistics over their carefully collected data that shows an income gap based upon gender. … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne of our commenters brought up a very good point yesterday: Where is 'Generations With Vision' radio show host Kevin Swanson?

“Men Need Respect, Women Need Love” – Really?

loverespect

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsAn anonymous commenter on my last blog post told me this: God, in His wisdom, made man the head of the union between man and his wife. He has created a desire in the woman to be loved, and in the man to be respected, and there is no amount of social re-engineering that can change that. This seems to me to be a good opportunity to address the whole love-vs-respect idea that most male-headship proponents espouse.  Where does this idea come from, that God made women to need love more than respect, and men to need respect more than love-- and that this is a basis for belief in male headship?The chief source of this idea … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Do Women Have Types?

debi

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismYou’re probably wondering where today’s Created To Be His Help Meet post is. I have some sad news—there won’t be one, technically speaking. I cannot find my copy of the book, and believe me, I have looked everywhere! I have ordered a new copy (you can get them cheap if you buy them used) in case I do not find my copy, so your regularly scheduled installment will be back next Friday.I’m not going to let this break in my review series go to waste, though. I want to take some time to address something that has come up in Aletha’s reviews—the idea that women, too, come in three types. This idea does not appear in Created To Be Hi … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Discretion and the Jewel in the Pig’s Nose

jeweled pig

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 188—189Here we begin the chapter titled “To Be Discreet.” Debi of course starts by quoting Titus 2 once again, given that she is going through it’s pieces one by one and the phrase “that they may teach the young women . . . to be discreet” is the subject of this chapter. She then defines “to be discreet”:To be discreet: Prudent; wise in avoiding error and in selecting the best means to accomplish a purpose; circumspect, courteous, polite, honest dealings.There’s nothing terribly wrong with that. Now, though, I’m bracing myself for Debi’s spin on it, because Debi so very frequently take … [Read more...]
