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: Love Being Home Or Else?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - What Is Your Favorite Place?Editor's note: Again Nancy spends a lot of time making sure that women know they have to have a good attitude, no negative thoughts or emotions or ELSE! She makes no allowance for those fundamentalist homes where there are 19 children in a two bedroom home under 1500 square feet or if there are serious issues with housing everyone safely or in a pleasant way. It's all shut and smile even if you live in a ramshackle hovel. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Honoring Men By Submission?

by unknown from The Sunshine Thiry Blog - What Would It Look Like For Christians To Honor Husbands And Fathers?Editor's note: Another of Biblical Gender Roles female submission enforcer friends that says what he wants to hear. The scary thing is that at his own site BGR seems to be hinting at moving in the direction of Christian Domestic Discipline aka spanking your wife. Also both he and this lady are pals of MRA promoting blogger Dalrock. BGR is moving closer to the realm of Men's Rights Activists and their harmful ideas of what constitutes a marriage - total slavery of the wife. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Forced Obedience or Voluntary Obedience in Submission – Is There Much of a Difference?

by Pastor Soni Japhet John from the comments on the Suko Family Blog - How To Make Your Wive Submit To Your AuthorityEditor's note: Originally I was going to quote from this blog posting that has been sweeping through the internet and going viral. But the comments are far most poisonous than the original article. If those inclined to practice submission did it as Mr. Suko did then it would be much less awful. It would be inching closer to egalitarian marriage. What is awful are the comments for the most part, particularly this quoted one, because it's ranty in that True Patriarch way. It may not be so much abusive in the language but in the way the pastor is expressing his views. Enjoy. … [Read more...]

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...]

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fashion Leads to Lust?

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...]

What is the Bravest Thing You’ve Ever Done?

by AJ cross posted from her blog I am PhoenixThe bravest thing I have done so far in my life has been allowing myself to feel.I was able to make it as far as I did  in life appearing on the outside to be normal and functional because I buried the past. Completely. I didn't talk about it to anyone, and I didn't acknowledge it to myself.Being numb to it was the only way I could survive. I purposely hung around with people who didn't talk about feelings or emotional things. I buried who I was, even if it meant I also had to bury my intuition, my creativity, my feelings, my empathy, and any form of introspection. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mary Pride Marginalized by Patriarchy?

by Karen Campbell from her blog That MomMary Pride was one of the first leaders in the modern homeschooling movement. Her book The Way Home was a powerful rebuttal of the radical feminist agenda and she minced no words as she made an appeal for rejecting all sorts of sacred cows. Mary was outspoken and certainly no model of the perfect patriarch wife and ruffled lots of male feathers. One of my fondest memories of homeschooling in the early days (nearly 30 years ago now) is of a conference in the St. Louis area with Gregg Harris, Michael Farris, and Mary … [Read more...]
