Quoting Quiverfull: Making Women Bitter About Submitting?

quotingquiverfull

by Paul Washer from I'll Be Honest.com - Recovering Biblical WomanhoodEditor's note: At least the clearly CPM author seems to understand that how the man behaves affects the wife's ability to submit. But it is still a poisonous idea, the whole idea that one is dominant and the other submissive, it creates and drives a lot of misery for everyone involved. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: All Feminists Hate Women?

quotingquiverfull

by Paul Washer from I'll Be Honest.com - Recovering Biblical WomanhoodEditor's note: This is one of the big lies in Quiverfull Evangelicalism - that feminists want all women to be men. Nope, they want all women to have a choice in how they live their lives, not be forced into gender-prescribed roles against their will. But the very religious finds the idea of free agency for women to be too threatening to their masculinity. What weak grasps they must hold on their own masculinity to be so threatened by women's choices. … [Read more...]

News: Jana Duggar Leaves ’19 Kids & Counting’ For Real Life

news

If this is factual then - Run, Jana RUN!First, let me say I do not know for certain if this is real news or manufactured Duggar drama merely meant to drive eyeballs to the television show. It's popping up only in places such as Ok! Magazine, various television reality blogs and some internet news sources not well known for their veracity, such as the Examiner and Radar Online. It's also one of those articles that quotes an anonymous Duggar insider. Some of those 'insider' articles have turned out not to be true. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fawn All Over Your Husband or Else?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Is Your Best Friend?Editor's note: Instead of fear-shaming women into being the BEST MOMS EVER!!! this bit tries to fear-shame you into not having a best friend that isn't your husband. Sorry, Nancy, not buying it. Having friends not in the family is an emotionally healthy thing and doesn't mean you don't love or respect your husband. … [Read more...]

Christian Cliches “Don’t Cause Your Brother to Stumble”

Image from Wordgazer's Words

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsThis is the beginning of a series on various catchwords and cliches that Christians (particularly evangelical ones) are fond of using.  Like most oversimplifications, however, they usually give an inaccurate or one-sided view of the particular issue they purport to be about-- and often, they are based on misunderstandings of the Bible text(s) they are taken from. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Personal Agency in Chosing Your Clothes?

quotingquiverfull

by Shoshanna Pearl Easling from No Greater Joy magazine - Prudent but not a PrudeEditor's note: This reads so sad on so many levels. The kids in the Pearl household had only used clothing four sizes too big? Based upon this I cannot ever see mother and daughter buying that perfect outfit for the special occasion together, or the joy that comes when you finally get that one piece of clothing you'd been longing for forever. There's nothing wrong with being thrifty or even buying second hand, but it sounds like all clothing choices for the Pearl children were practical only. And the claims of not being a prude? Has anyone ever seen a Pearl women in anything but a longish skirt and loose … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Misunderstanding ‘Patriarchy’?

quotingquiverfull

by Gabriel Hudelson of Thine is The Kingdom - Godzilla on PatriarchyEditor's note: This author is speaking on the HSLDA article published in August titled 'A Line in the Sand' and refuting some of it line by line. HSLDA wrote distancing itself from Doug Phillips, Bill Gothard and their definition of Patriarchy in an attempt to pretend to be different than Gothard and Phillips among other things. Is HSLDA being disingenuous or are they making real theological changes in how they view gender roles and submission of women? … [Read more...]
