Quoting Quiverfull: Fashion Leads to Lust?

beetlejuice pants

by Stephanus Blignaut from Go Tell My People - Modesty: Discouraging Lust and Encouraging Godliness Women are so easily caught up in “what everyone is doing” or what is available in the shops and what is promoted in magazines and TV. They don’t think about how their body is portrayed and what it causes in men – the stumbling block it becomes for men. Women condemn lust in a man when they see it but somehow they don’t make the connection between the condemnable lust and their own clothes that they are wearing. Not realizing this makes them stand guilty before God as a stumbling stone because of the lust they caused. … [Read more...]

News: Jack Schaap Trying To Squirm Out Of Sentence

While dress codes are not the issue in the Jack Schaap conviction the same attitudes of sexualizing a teenager and trying to blame her for his own attitudes towards her are the same.

Now Jack Schaap is claiming that he was improperly represented by his legal staff at his trial for violation of the Mann Act and sex with an underaged girl. Schaap is claiming his attorneys promised him a sentence of no more than ten years, yet the judge gave him twelve years. It was fully within the rights of the judge to decide the length of the sentence regardless of what prosecutors  or defense team members asked for as a sentence. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Pot Meet Kettle – Modesty Standards and Religion?

A bridal hijab. Everyday hijabs aren't that fancy. Isn't she beautiful?

by Bojidar Marinov from The American Vision - Civilization and Self ControlNo wonder Islam seldom teaches self-control in man. While acknowledging the destructive nature of male uncontrolled lust, Islam leaves it to women to protect themselves and society from destruction by choosing their clothing in such a way as to completely shut them off from the world. Men are supposed to remain at the level of immature puberty their whole lives. Women and girls are supposed to act wise and mature from a very early age, exercising external control where men are unable to exercise internal self-control. In the Shariah legislation, a woman is guilty of adultery even when raped. It must be her fault, … [Read more...]

from Michael Stone at his blog Progressive Secular Humanist - American Taliban: Utah Modesty Police Edit Girls' Yearbook PhotosEditorial note: This has been all over the media the last few days. Apparently  Good Christians/Mormons (tm) decided that tank tops and bra straps were the big No-No and decided to keep Utah boys pure of lustful thoughts by photoshopping (badly) sleeves onto shirts covering shoulders and bra straps. More slut-shaming in this modesty standard that wasn't even applied consistently.Modesty standards and slut shaming isn't just for Biblical Patriarches, Minthegap's Adam Gregorin and church busybodies any more. … [Read more...]

Kevin Swanson from Generations With Vision Ministries in Right Wing Watch - Kevin Swanson Warns "This Whole Lesbian Whatever Has Turned People Into 'Feces Eaters' "On Monday, “Generations Radio” host Kevin Swanson warned that “this whole lesbian whatever, the Neronic agenda” — the term he regularly uses to describe the LGBT rights movement — has helped plunged society into “dysfunctionality” and turned people into “feces eaters.” “There’s not just divorce: people are eating their own feces, there’s incest everywhere,” Swanson lamented. He said that only churches like his can draw the feces-eaters back to God: “There’s a contrast between the feces-eaters and the church and I think the fe … [Read more...]

Patriarchy in Homeschool Culture

This is what "The Patriarchy" looks like in my head

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons I grew up in a subculture of evangelical Christianity that’s known as “Christian Patriarchy,” which is what the people who preach and teach this “lifestyle” un-ironically call it. I was also peripherally a part of the Quiverful and Stay-at-Home-Daughters movements, which are all separate things. A family can be Quiverful without preaching Christian Patriarchy or requiring daughters to remain at home until marriage, for example. … [Read more...]

It's ironic that Great Homeschool Conventions will not allow Ryan Stollar of HARO and Homeschoolers Anonymous to speak at their convention but they are likely to defend people like the Jackson family of Perquimans County, North Carolina. Better to protect even abusers than allow someone advocating for the rights of homeschool children. … [Read more...]
