NLQ Question of the Week: Why Live Like You Are In The 1880s?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we’re going to start running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.This week's thoughts and questions involve the Quiverfull lifestyle in the wake of the mess with the Naugler family. Granted, the Naugler family does the entire off-the-grid thing very poorly, unlike most Quiverfull families that go off grid. That still doesn't stop the support of the Quiverfull Homeschooling community for this family. Which brings me to this question - Why is it that the lifestyle of living as close to how our pioneer ancestors lived is upheld as the perfect standard in Quiverfull? Bake your own bread, grow your own food, sew y … [Read more...]

Zero Tolerance: Manly Temper or Ungodly Outburst

Screen shot from Christian Post

by S.J. Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink Flamingo The Anger Buster Rap by Barbara Gruener When anger chooses me, here’s an important fact: I always get to choose exactly how I’ll react. I don’t need to fight or shout, pout and cry; I have some healthy strategies for management I try. I write or draw or count to ten, I talk it out or go outside to play. I take deep breaths or exercise until my anger goes away. So when anger chooses you, and it will, that’s a fact! Why not try my healthy ways to help you react. … [Read more...]

‘Gilmore Girls’ and Child Abuse

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Two of the many things I missed out on during my we-didn’t-have-TV childhood were Friends and Gilmore Girls. I’m in the process of rectifying it– thank you very much Netflix– and so far it’s been pretty fun. I really enjoy the way the characters interact with each other, especially how much Lorelai really is almost exactly like her mother … if her mother had pink-furry-telephone taste. I’m also enjoying Rachel’s sudden introduction to paying taxes. … [Read more...]

Patriarchal Ideas in Modern Culture: Adrian Peterson’s Child ‘Discipline’

gettingaswitch

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFor all our conversations here at NLQ over the horrible child abuse disguised as discipline you'd hope that the world outside of the fundamentalist evangelical Christian bubble would be free of this abuse, that parents would realize that most studies on physical violence as discipline show it does more harm than good. Sadly that's not the case.  This weekend the news proved yet again how pervasive these harmful patriarchal bad theology really is. The NFL's Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on charges of 'reckless or negligent injury to a child' by a grand jury in Texas. … [Read more...]

Patriarchal Ideas in Modern Culture: Please Your Man or Lose Him!

susan patton

No, for a change this isn't Debi Pearl advising you to bend over backwards, sideways and upside down to keep pleasing your man. This came from Fox News a few days ago. Think Progress did a story on the "Princeton Mom" Susan Patton and her recent appearance on Fox News - Husband Appreciation - Sage Advice For Wives.  “If you are in your mid-30s or older the idea that you’re going to find yourself another husband, almost impossible,” Patton predicted. “And if you don’t believe me ask your maiden aunt, she will tell you when she’s done feeding the cats.” … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Today’s Men & Women?

adameve

by Owen Strachan of Desiring God in the Introduction for John Piper's new book "Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood" from pages 19 to 20. You can download it for free and it's filled with bad theology enough to make you chuckle on a rainy Friday. We are going to be pulled as men and women toward certain unGodly behaviors. Men today are told that they are idiots, little boys  who never grow up.  We see such cowardice in both Adam's initial failure  to protect the woman God gave him and his subsequent instinct to blame Eve for his sinful leadership (Genesis 3: 1-7) Women today are told that their value is in their looks, or their social skills, or their ability to dominate men. We … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mary Pride Marginalized by Patriarchy?

marginalized

by Karen Campbell from her blog That MomMary Pride was one of the first leaders in the modern homeschooling movement. Her book The Way Home was a powerful rebuttal of the radical feminist agenda and she minced no words as she made an appeal for rejecting all sorts of sacred cows. Mary was outspoken and certainly no model of the perfect patriarch wife and ruffled lots of male feathers. One of my fondest memories of homeschooling in the early days (nearly 30 years ago now) is of a conference in the St. Louis area with Gregg Harris, Michael Farris, and Mary … [Read more...]

News: Is ‘Sleeping Beauty’ a Tale of Female Submission?

Angelina Jolie as 'Maleficent' in the film of the same name.

from Buzz Feed's Ariane Lange - How Maleficent Became The Mistress of all Evil in Just 600 Years But perhaps the explanation for Maleficent’s cruelty has been in the centuries of patriarchal history all along.In Disney’s 1959 version and its source material, Maleficent curses a baby princess to seek revenge for a real or perceived insult. Despite being harsh, this villain is, remarkably, the only female character who is consistently pursuing her own agenda in every version of these stories. … [Read more...]

NLQ would like to thank all those who have served in the United States Military AND all those left behind at home or as a military spouse supporting those veterans for their service. Especially now that it seems  there is less support for our warriors and their families from the government. Thank for your service. … [Read more...]
