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: 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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Complaining You Cannot Keep Up?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Strength For Each New DayEditor's note: Another Nancyism doubling down on don't have fears, doubts, negative thoughts because God will provide for all the children He will give you if you trust him.

Victoria Wilson Says Birthing Babies is All About Jesus

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserMy wife and I have six children, ages 23, 24, 27, 32, 35, and 37. Polly had all of the children vaginally, without epidurals. Over the years, I have stood in the background and watched as Polly traded birthing war stories with other mothers. Mothers love to talk about length of labor, epidurals, methods of birth, breast feeding vs. bottle, cloth vs. disposable, and various other … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Public School is Evil, But You Are More Evil For Not Obeying?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater joy – Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: So after accusing the letter-writer of sitting around eating bon-bons all day while reading and watching television Debi follows up with a little spiritual poison about not teaching anything of faith or being a prayer warrior. The implication is to leave all that stuff to the men folks and learn your place. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Women Hate Motherhood?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - There's a Big Difference!Editor's note: Nancy is busy making claims yet again that those that are educated and had or have careers before motherhood are hating motherhood, finding it frustrating and difficult. No studies or evidence of this beyond Nancy's claims of always stay home, never want anything beyond raising children. Same song with slightly different lyrics. Sorry, but motherhood isn't easy for anyone, Nancy, everyone experiences less than fun moments, frustrations and challenges, but it doesn't mean we're doing it wrong. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Resist Babies?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Can Resist A Baby?Editor's note: Who can resist a baby? Lots of folks. College students, senior citizens, high school students, men and women working towards a goal, single people, married people and hopefully those ladies in the path of the Zika virus. A baby is not a trophy or a prize collected at the end of the particular difficult game. They aren't a box to be checked off on a list. They are a serious commitment, a life time commitment and not everyone is prepared to make that commitment no matter how Nancy phrases it in bad poetry. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Motherhood Only Career That Matters Eternally?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Highest CareerEditor's note: Nancy pushes her main message yet again. What is it about women having choices, even simple choices like if you go to school or work outside of the home, that these people find so threatening? Isn't having a mother who feels fulfilled and happy better than having a mother who's resentful and upset all the time because she's doing something she doesn't want to do? … [Read more...]

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...]
