NLQ original image

by pastor Stephen Kim from NYC Pastor blog - 10 Women Christian Men Should Not MarryEditor's note: The entire list is pretty bad, filled with pious scripture references and lots of poisonous assumptions like something straight out of Debi Pearl's awful tome 'Created To Be A Help Meet". It was hard to pick only one to focus on for our Quoting Quiverfull feature. Which do you think is the worst on the list? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: AIDS Free By December 25th – The Duggars Lose Their Homophobe Crown?

The gleeful homophobic put the gays to death and giving illegal medical advice Andersons, Steven and Zsuzsanna

from Raw Story by Steven Anderson, Pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Arizona Pastor Predicts "AIDS-Free Christmas" If All Gays Are Killed, As God CommandsAnd here we thought Jim Bob and Michelle were the hatingest haters of the homosexuals in the world of the Christian Patriarch Movement. Looks like Zsuzsanna Anderson's hubby is trying to snatch that crown from their heads.This extreme hatred of gays to the point where he is advocating killing gay people makes me wonder if Steven is so far into the closet that he's seeing the next century's worth of Christmas presents. Many of these guys in the Quiverfull movement are so obsessed with proving their masculinity by keeping the … [Read more...]

How about you, dear readers? Are you a SBNR, The Nones or part of The Dones? … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 86 – 106: ‘Taking out the Trash’

trash

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons I wish you all could read the entirely of this chapter because it is ironic. One of these days I’ll have to create a whole series of posts dedicated to page 89, where Mark defines repentance, comparing that to his actual real-life behavior, because it is hysterical. Not only does he fail his own list of “pastoral requirements,” he also bombs at his own definition of repentance– and you can read the whole thing here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Treating ‘Disrespect’ With More ‘Disrespect’ Is Biblical?

ohreally

by Mary Sunshine and her commenters at her blog Sunshine Mary and the Dragon - Nip Disrespect in the Bud Before it Blooms into the Flower of RebellionCame across this blog on Facebook on one of the NLQ affiliate sites. Struck by how disrespectfully rude some of the ideas for dealing with disrespect from wifes are. Any man that pulls this crap needs to spend a few nights without 'marital affections' sleeping on the sofa. Respect in marriage is a two way street no matter if you believe in God or the Flying Spaghetti Monster or nothing. You cannot get respect from your spouse by disrespecting them back. Life doesn't work that way no matter what the CPM & QF people think. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Scripture is Holy Sperm?

seed

by Michael Pearl from his book "Holy Sex"  about halfway through the book. He's speaking of bring 'Born Again' and referencing the book of John and how it all relates to our sexuality.(Sorry, my Kindle will not give me page numbers for this book!) "The believer has the power to overcome sin because of the seed---just like the sperm that generated life---which is the Word of God, remains in him. He is a new creature.Since God compares the words of Holy Scripture to male sperm, it must be that the human reproductive process is created in the image of divine realities." … [Read more...]
