Quoting Quiverfull: Young Y-O-U-N-G Women Need to Marry and Have Babies?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - The Biological Case for Polygamy and Marriage of Young WomenEditor's note: This is pretty scary to me because medical research has shown that people aren't finishing physically maturing until their mid-20s. That's just about the time that BGR says you should stop having babies according to his post. And his assertion that you have lost 90% of your eggs by 30? That information is from only one single study, not the follow up studies done by places like the Mayo Clinic that dispute this finding. This lie about fertility was show on the "New Girl" a few years back and has been thoroughly debunked. … [Read more...]

Deadly Submission – Why Guys Like Biblical Gender Roles Matter & the Damage They Cause

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeETA Monday 11-23-15 Have to admit I was completely wrong on this one. They have arrested three guys for this murder with no apparent connection to Davey Blackburn. Breaking news from Fox 59~~~~~~~~~We've followed Biblical Gender Roles for about six months now. Gasping in shock at some newer more outrageous statement of his, laughed at some of the things coming out of mouth like that disastrous Alan Combs interview he did. But one thing we have not done here at NLQ is realize how his contemptuous words against women in marriage could have serious influence on unhappy husbands and possibly lead to tragic … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Divorce Causes Mass Shootings?

by Matt Walsh of the Matt Walsh Blog as quoted by It's The Women Not The Men - Good Guys  (linked through Do Not Link)Editor's note: This isn't to put down gun control or support gun control. This is being posted because it is a perfect example of QF Fundamentalism's tendency to take complex issues and reduce them down to something simplistic. That simple solution is always something 'Bible based' instead of researched, given any amount of deep thought or alternative solutions. Hungry? You must be lazy and the Bible says lazy people don't eat. Have depression? You're selfish. Sick? You must have sinned in some way... the list goes on and on. You disrespect others when you reduce … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Modern Medicine Denigrated?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.We've all seen the Quiverfull families that refuse all modern medicine, sometimes with rather dire consequences. I'm thinking of a lady at my former church that had a very treatable form of cancer yet refused all treatments because she believed that medicine was idolatry and that God would heal her. She's been six feet under for quite some time now, dying in horrible agony. Her husband took the insurance money from her death to buy a yellow Corvette, and marry a much younger better looking woman after the death of his wife. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Every Woman A Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Debi doesn't say what to do if you are married to a man that shirks his responsibilities, forcing the wife to take over everything. But I'm pretty sure Debi would never fault the man, always calling the wife a Jezebel type. Remember, if Debi's not name calling and blaming a woman she's not happy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Why All the Hormone-Blaming?

by Steven L Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Being a Psalm 23 HusbandEditor's note: While some of what Anderson is saying below is true - there will be tough times in marriage - but he eventually goes to that place that Michael Pearl, Biblical Gender Roles and countless other patriarchs go: blaming a woman's hormones for adding to the bad times. Men please get a grip! Hormones aren't causing the strife in your marriage and aren't to blame for everything going sideways! Men have hormones too and be every bit as irrational and angry as the women they accuse. … [Read more...]
