Quoting Quiverfull: Why Can’t Feminists Also Have Meek and Quiet Spirits?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - What Makes a Woman Feminine?Editor's note: Skipping a lot of quotes from the various Biblical commentaries that Lori used to justify her own thoughts on the subject. But here's the rub, there are women in the workforce out there that do fit the Biblical model of meek and quiet spirit, that go about their day peacefully blessing everyone they encounter. Why should the belief that men and women are equal automatically translate to loud boisterous behavior? It doesn't. This is another assumption by those outside of the workforce, like Lori. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 Everything Women Do is Wrong?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Last bit. We learn that women can try to control without even realizing they are. In Debi Pearl's world there is no winning for a woman no matter what you do. The goal post shifts every time you look. That is the ultimate in keeping someone cowed, controlled and fearful, never let them assume they are doing anything right. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Vain Self-Indulgent Women With Designer Purses Are Not ‘Godly’?

Unknown at Got Questions.Org - What Does it Mean to be a Godly Wife? Editor's note: Notice this seems to be a feature of Evangelical Quiverfull - the need to denigrate women who are living even slightly differently than they are. All the popular shaming ad blaming is here, be attractive, but not too attractive! Don't watch television or use your own hard-earned money for a designer purse, unless you get it for twenty bucks at Goodwill. No gossiping and gossiping includes ever saying anything about the husband that is not glowingly positive. Ugh! So much so hateful and wrong in these assumptions of what unGodly women by their metric do all day! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Must Vote Same as Their Husbands?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Why Does Disobeying Our Husbands Blaspheme the Word of God?Editor's note: 'Political'? This is something that Lori is digging out of very old commentaries that is not once mentioned in Titus. Pulling things out of her derrierre again just to support her toxic ideas. Vote however you like. There's no rule anywhere in the Bible that forbids it or says that you even have to tell your spouse, or anyone else, how you voted. This more more of her nitpicking that ignores the large scope of the gospel and the words of Jesus. … [Read more...]

The Power of the Transformed Wife – Misunderstanding Proverbs 31 to Mean Stay Home and Clean

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWe're on Chapter 12 this week in Lori Alexander's confused and confusing tome on the role of submissive women in their families. The title is 'Keepers at Home' and it contains some doozies of toxic nuggets along with a willful misinterpretation of what the Proverbs 31 woman looks like.Let me state that this chapter coming right now in my life is seriously triggering to me. I am packing for an overseas move to Costa Rica. At the same time I am having my house slightly remodeled to rent the house out, new bedroom carpets and painted along with a few upgrades. I'm up to my eyeballs in boxes, dust, shreds of wallpaper being removed, someone else tearing out my … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Always Weaker?

by members of Lori Alexander's Facebook page as quoted on The Transformed Wife - Why Do Women Despise Being the Weaker Vessel?Editor's note: This is a sad pile of rationalizations for being stay at home moms. Notice not one of them says that they do it because it's what they want to do, or that it makes them happy. Feminism is not so that every women is forced to work outside of the home, it is so that every woman has the option to do that which makes her feel fulfilled in her life. Quiverfull and Lori want to see everyone stripped of any options. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Medicines, Only Foods?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Nourishing and Healing Your Family With FoodEditor's note: While no one would dispute the importance of serving healthy foods to your husband and children some of these claims of healing because of fermented homemade food are childish at best. If you go to Lori's site and read the rest of this she's busy reciting her many health problems before putting down someone that pointed out that God could heal her. Just bad all the way around. Eat healthy, sure, but dismissing medicine, doctors and the prayers of your faith community seems short-sided.Has anyone else noticed that this author seems to talk about food a great deal, about … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Being Like a Man Greatest Sin of a Woman?

by John MacArthur from Grace to You - Head Coverings For WomenEditor's note: So it seems that the idea of doing anything like a man if you are a woman is automatically considered rebellion against God. I guess that explains why men with fragile masculinity like Tim Bayly lose their minds when women fight in the UFC or try to have combat positions in the military - it's just the CPM version of the Little Rascals 'He-Man Woman Haters Club'. Hair and clothing are such personal matters than only the person with the hair or making the clothing decisions should have say over what their choices are. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Teach Daughters College is Not For Them?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - This Family Pursues Holy LivingEditor's note: One of Lori's readers sent her a gift box and a long letter that Lori immediately posted on her blog. In the letter her fan posted a pile of qualifiers to show she's not some nasty lazy modern woman working and wasting her time on social media. Then proceeds to tell Lori she's been reading her old blog for six months. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Does This Sound Like a Proverbs 31 Woman?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - She Does Him Good and Not Evil: 31:12Editor's note: Lori's extrapolating out her own thoughts again and trying to make them 'Biblical'. While some of these are what a good wife will do regardless of what religion, if any, they practice she's really stretching hard on many of them. Example: Lori claims you stay home and keep the house immaculate unlike the words in Proverbs 31 indicating that the lady of the house had servants to do those things while she was about her business. What do you think is the most toxic bit here? … [Read more...]
