Behind Compound Walls: Dueling Duggar Stories – Is Josh Duggar ‘Suicidal’?

Image by NLQ

Everything single morning I can count on a couple of things once I get out of bed. 1) The cats will demand food, 2) I will need copious amounts of coffee and 3) there will be a pile of articles involving the Duggar family landing in my email box. Personally I prefer the cats and coffee. One reason why is became many times the stories of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stories are either generated by their PR firm or they all just contradict the hell out each other. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Waiting To Marry & Reproduce Is Sinful?

quotingquiverfull

by Courtney Reissig from John Piper's The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood - The "It Can Wait" PhenomenonEditor's note: Evangelical Christianity fear tactics to get the women folks out of the work force and home having babies asap. No one should ever feel pressured or guilted into becoming a wife or a mother. … [Read more...]

Jill and Jessa as Quivering Daughters: Hillary McFarland’s Book is Available Again!

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace The previous post explains the plight of Second Generation Adults of Patriarchy (SGAs) — those who suffer in the confinement of thought and in the circumstances in life created by Christians who sought to help their families.  The SGA describes adults who grew up in a family that followed high demand religion — a process that has profound effects for those who endure it.  Quivering Daughters by Hillary McFarland seeks to help those who have lived a “Duggar-like lifestyle” but found that it worked to destroy that which it was meant to create.  Rather than a nurturing environment of safety and love, many of its daughters and sons wer … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Never Worry About Providing For Your Kids?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies Magazine - Is God Able to Provide For Another Baby?Editor's note: A long article from Nancy ordering people to trust God and have as many kids as possible. The truly bizarre part of the article to me is Nancy trying to shame people by pointing out that the Israelites wandering for forty years didn't have split level homes or 7-11s but they had everything they needed to support a huge family because God provided manna in the wilderness. Sorry Nancy, that really does not translate into our times. Is she genuinely suggesting living in a tent here? Isn't that what the Naugler family was doing before CPS decided that wasn't providing for their children? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Oh No, We’re Not Quiverfull?

quotingquiverfull

by Kelly Crawford of Generation Cedar - Why I Agreed to Do a National Interview About Not Being QuiverfullEditor's note: Kelly is trying to back pedal from being Quiverfull even while she will not use birth control and has as many children as possible for the glory of God, which is actually the main definition of the Quiverfull movement, or as some folks in denial call it, the Replenishment Movement. Her immediate jump is to claim again and again that she is not Quiverfull and labels are the problem, not the twisted practices and dangerously bad theology. My Cajun great grandmother used to have a saying for times like these, "You can polish a turd, but it's still a turd." Same thing with … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Worry About The Children You Already Have, Pop Out More?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - When Should We Stop Blessings?Editor's note: It's pretty obvious that any sane person would answer Nancy's question with "When we've decided we don't want any more children", or "We can barely feed the ones we have", or "Because this is wrecking my health." Nancy takes none of that in to consideration, it's all have as many as you can no matter what the realities are of your life. She immediately knocks down the established Christian notion of 'Free Will' as an excuse to sin. The examples of great men she cites as being from large families doesn't take into account that a) there was no birth control available, b) you needed large numbers of children … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Good Stewards of Money Are Disobeying God?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Logic or Faith?Editor's note: Nancy has started to answer some of the comments from her posts that don't line up with the pump out the babies or else theology she preaches on her site. They are perfect examples of the breathtakingly bad theology preached in the Quiverfull movement that ignores all common sense for a twisted messed up pile of illogical mixed with Bible. So God promises to provide for each child? What happened with all the children living in the abject poverty of someplace like, say, inner city slums? Why didn't God provide for them? … [Read more...]
