Quoting Quiverfull: Making Women Bitter About Submitting?

by Paul Washer from I'll Be Honest.com - Recovering Biblical WomanhoodEditor's note: At least the clearly CPM author seems to understand that how the man behaves affects the wife's ability to submit. But it is still a poisonous idea, the whole idea that one is dominant and the other submissive, it creates and drives a lot of misery for everyone involved. … [Read more...]

News: Jana Duggar Leaves ’19 Kids & Counting’ For Real Life

If this is factual then - Run, Jana RUN!First, let me say I do not know for certain if this is real news or manufactured Duggar drama merely meant to drive eyeballs to the television show. It's popping up only in places such as Ok! Magazine, various television reality blogs and some internet news sources not well known for their veracity, such as the Examiner and Radar Online. It's also one of those articles that quotes an anonymous Duggar insider. Some of those 'insider' articles have turned out not to be true. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Personal Agency in Chosing Your Clothes?

by Shoshanna Pearl Easling from No Greater Joy magazine - Prudent but not a PrudeEditor's note: This reads so sad on so many levels. The kids in the Pearl household had only used clothing four sizes too big? Based upon this I cannot ever see mother and daughter buying that perfect outfit for the special occasion together, or the joy that comes when you finally get that one piece of clothing you'd been longing for forever. There's nothing wrong with being thrifty or even buying second hand, but it sounds like all clothing choices for the Pearl children were practical only. And the claims of not being a prude? Has anyone ever seen a Pearl women in anything but a longish skirt and loose … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Misunderstanding ‘Patriarchy’?

by Gabriel Hudelson of Thine is The Kingdom - Godzilla on PatriarchyEditor's note: This author is speaking on the HSLDA article published in August titled 'A Line in the Sand' and refuting some of it line by line. HSLDA wrote distancing itself from Doug Phillips, Bill Gothard and their definition of Patriarchy in an attempt to pretend to be different than Gothard and Phillips among other things. Is HSLDA being disingenuous or are they making real theological changes in how they view gender roles and submission of women? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Outside of the Home is Forfeiting Femininity?

by Lady Lydia in her blog Home Living - Should Christian Ask Their Wives To Go To Work?Editor's note: Another Christian lady that seems to think that the standards practiced in the time of Queen Victoria still apply in today's modern world over a hundred years later. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Just Like That You Changed?

by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield in Today's Christian Woman- From Lesbian Professor to Pastor's WifeEditor's note: This seems to be a common theme in Evangelical Christianity, this belief that you can just walk away from the type of sexuality you have lived in for years. Seems wrong to say it's a simple change of thoughts. What do you think dear reader? … [Read more...]

‘Gilmore Girls’ and Child Abuse

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Two of the many things I missed out on during my we-didn’t-have-TV childhood were Friends and Gilmore Girls. I’m in the process of rectifying it– thank you very much Netflix– and so far it’s been pretty fun. I really enjoy the way the characters interact with each other, especially how much Lorelai really is almost exactly like her mother … if her mother had pink-furry-telephone taste. I’m also enjoying Rachel’s sudden introduction to paying taxes. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Robbed of Their Primary Dominion?

by Andrea Schwartz at The Kingdom Driven Family and as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Power on Her Head: The Home Field AdvantageEditor's note: Bojidar Marinov is speaking about the minimizing of women's roles in the church by patriarchy along with the petty tin-plated dictatorship by men over their wives that seems to be endemic to the Christian Patriarchy Movement. Andrea's response? To try to explain management roles and job descriptions from the world being applied to the marriage relationship. Sort of like describing a pineapple and the listener drawing an apple instead. She describes a wife as a 'useful reflection' of her husband. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Woman ‘Are’ Equal As Long As They Submit?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Baby Oil on the Bowling BallEditor's note: Now I know this is all so word-salady, verbose, and not the easiest to parse, but if I'm reading it correctly Mr. Wilson is trying to say that there is equality between men and women as long as the wife is submissive and obedient to her husband. … [Read more...]
