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...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Birth Control Decisions

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, OKrational and the best possible solution, in other words … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Desperate Infertile Mothers Are Monsters?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? - Did I Already Mention I Hate IVF?Editor's note: As a woman who has seriously struggled with infertility while quiverfull, just like many of you here have, I find Zsuzsanna's words mocking another infertile mother upsetting and vile. Where's the love of Christ in any of this? One lesson learned through the years is that things you throw rocks at because it's a battle you do not have can become the same problem for you. Universal reciprocity or karma just seems to like to work that way. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Have Babies or Deprive the World?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Every Great Thing That Happens In The World Happens Through The Womb!Editor's note: Now Nancy is equating keeping from having a baby of a possible Einstein or Mother Theresa. What she doesn't say is that it works both ways, you might also be keeping a Jeffrey Dahmer or Pol Pot from this world too. Have lots of babies because God is her primary message these days. She doesn't seem to realize that her advise is about as true as those labels on ladies clothing that say 'One Size Fits All' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Steals Your Joy?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Effects of Birth ControlEditor's note: That sermon transcript archive at Faithful Word Baptist Church is like Christian in July, a treasure trove of misspelled, grammar-mangling, bad ideas, bad Bible translations pile of crazy. There's nothing that exposes the under-educated belief system of a Independent  Fundamentalist Baptist Church. Another pastor doubling down on the message of no birth control ever, have as many kids as possible and women should always stay home. It's a good thing that the Marie Curies of this world didn't follow that advice or we'd have been deprived of many useful things, theories and science. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Trusting God With Your Fertility?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Body Weight and FertilityEditor's note: Many have been wondering exactly where Anderson draws the line at medical care. In her blog she has routinely ranted against any medical intervention, until she was going to lose her pregnancy of twins due to TTTS. Quicker than you can say 'Vaccines are an evil government plan.' Zsu was at a high risk pregnancy doctor being treated in an effort to save one or both babies. Reading this bit it seems like she may have modified her doctors are evil stance. Add in a little advice on body weight and fertility. What do you think? Are you really trusting God with your fertility if you use medical treatments … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is ‘Home Birth’ so Promoted as the Godly Way?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One thing we've seen here at NLQ in both the stories told by some of our writers and in the words of cultural enforcers of Quiverfull such as Debi Pearl and Nancy Campbell is a dislike or disdain for giving birth in the hospital. Even when there are tragic circumstances that might have been prevented with prior prenatal care with a licensed physician and at a health care facility --- like what happened with Carri Chmielewski. … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Mate” – Is It Right To Shun A Couple For Being Childless?

Quoting Quiverfull: Declining Birth Rates Dooming Children to Huge Future Burdens?

by Shannon Roberts of Mercator.Net - No One is Winning From the World's Lack of Children as renamed and quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Are Your Children Ready For The Future?Editor's note: Is either posting really making a believable point that not increasing the population will harm our children's future? After reading both I'm still not entirely sure what this terrible 'burden' is because of declining birth rates. Typical Evangelical scare tactics to reinforce compliance with extra Biblical rules and submission roles for women, dominance by men. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Quiverfull Making Martyrs Out Of Mothers?

by Steven Ertelt from Life News - No  Greater Love: Putting the life of her unborn baby first; mother dies after giving birthEditor's note: Life News uses the death of a woman who from all accounts wasn't Quiverfull to make a point about how good Christian mothers are supposed to carry pregnancies that will end their lives to the end, no matter what the doctors advise. They are canonizing the dead women Suzanne Mazzola as an example to be looked up to instead of a woman who took a risk and paid the price. It was her decision and her's alone to make, but typically Life News ignores that. If they had their way that decision would be made in advance for all women. … [Read more...]
