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

quotingquiverfull

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?

quotingquiverfull

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: No Personal Agency in Chosing Your Clothes?

quotingquiverfull

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’?

quotingquiverfull

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: Just Like That You Changed?

Quoting

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

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

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

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...]
