The Sin of Yoga Pants?

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeEditor's note: Written in Oct. 2016 around the time of the launch of Lori Alexander's new book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife'This morning as I was preparing upcoming posts for No Longer Quivering I ended up using a quote from always unpleasant and constantly blaming in a shameful way Lori Alexander.If you don't know who Lori is consider yourself lucky. Lori was once affiliated with Ladies Against Feminism, although it's been a while since I've seen her finger prints on anything at their site. She used to have a blog called 'Always Learning' that truthfully should have been labeled 'Always Closed Minded … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Created Only to Look Pretty and Pop Out Babies?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Created With Divine PurposeEditor's note: We haven't quoted Nancy Campbell much here lately because her messages are always the same - Accept that God made you a woman and embrace all that is traditionally thought in long ago days that is the purpose of a woman. Notice that she's obsessing yet again over the womb. Sorry Nancy, but we are all way more than walking wombs with a pair of breasts attached. a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Godly Homes Have Everything In Its Place?

by Patty of Glorious Within Her - 3 Ways to Reflect God's Nature in Our HomesEditor's note: I'm always amazed when I see the lengths of Biblical justification that the Quiverfull and Evangelical Mommy Bloggers will go to in order to make their own personal preferences 'Godly'. At least she's not trying to say sloppy housekeepers should go to jail, like Lori Alexander approves of. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Working Women Eat More Fast Food?

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Career Women Lead to Wasteful LivingEditor's note: By whose standards are working women leading wasteful lives? Quite the contrary, women in the workforce are doing some very important things. There are women doctors, lawyers and in all segments of the working world making things just a little bit better for everyone, including easing the onus financial burden placed on the under educated husbands in evangelical Christianity. Some women aren't  gifted in the areas of hearth and home and that's perfectly fine. Not everyone needs to stay home to find fulfillment and do themselves and their families a disservice when forced into a role they are … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1- Your Advice Got Me Shunned?

by an unnamed Amish lady writing to Michael Pearl at No Greater Joy - From Our Mailbox A 'Saved' Amish LadyEditor's note: For once this might actually be one of the rare real letters to the Pearls. Kind of breaks my heart because after all of this in this part and the piece we're posting in the morning Michael Pearl's only advice were those scriptures that talk about rejoicing when you are rejected for following Jesus and that Jesus came to set brother against brother. No practical advice, no empathy, no understanding, just a pile of scriptures that basically say "Well what did you expect?" This is what toxic faith looks like. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising ‘World Changers’, Not Children?

by Unknown at A Wise Woman Builds Her Home - Reclaiming the Lost Vision of MotherhoodEditor's note: Another female cultural enforcer competing for alpha status on her claims that motherhood is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER!!!!!!..... While it is fun to think that every child you raise has the potential to be the most awesome of all time who will impact history, the reality is that 99.99% of people just aren't going to turn out to be that. And that is okay. The world needs everyone, from those in humble positions through exalted. This idea of raising superior people who will take over the world for Christ that flourishes in Evangelicalism and in Quiverfull is a ridiculous one in light of … [Read more...]
