Fundamentalist Patriarch Dave Buehner Objects To Vyckie Garrison’s 2014 Speech

Youtube screen grab of Vyckie Garrison speaking at the American Atheist Conference 2014

Remember last year, right around this time, when NLQ founder Vyckie Garrison spoke at the American Atheist convention in Salt Lake City, Utah on Easter weekend? Her speech was shared internet wide and articles written about it. It was titled "How Playing The Good Christian Wife Almost Killed Me."Apparently it took nearly a year for the news of Vyckie's speech and the articles to reach Kevin Swanson's radio sidekick, boot licker and all around enabler Dave Buehner. Okay, so I know Swanson is always carrying on during his show about how they're hiding in a basement bunker style but you'd think they'd occasionally leave the bunker for the outside world. At least for a Chik Fil A run once in … [Read more...]

“You’re Supposed to be Creating An Army For God”

vyckie

A new article about NLQ founder Vyckie Garrison from Good Magazine!One woman’s courageous struggle to be more than a “womb man” by Sarah Stankorb In the fall of 2007, Vyckie Garrison’s faith began to crumble. Her fundamentalist Christian beliefs, which had previously encased her in what seemed like an armor of God’s love, had led her to have seven children as a submissive wife, a similar fate as almost every other grown woman in her religious community. She spent her days home schooling her kids and publishing a pro-life Christian newspaper with her husband. So strong was her faith that when she was warned to steer clear of a hippie, nonbelieving uncle, she felt insulted that others tho … [Read more...]

Sharing again as it seems appropriate in light of our recent discussions about Mary Pride)A couple months back, I received an email from Mary Pride -- apparently, she's feeling the pressure since Frank Schaeffer mentioned her in his latest book, Sex, Mom & God, and has been talking in various interviews about her role in founding the Quiverfull and Christian Patriarchy movements with her book, The Way Home: Beyond Feminism and Back to Reality.If you Google "Mary Pride" -- NLQ comes up 4th on the results page -- I'm guessing that's how she ended up emailing me: … [Read more...]
