NLQ Book Review: God’s Buried Children by Daniel Farcas

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOver a year ago a series of emails landed in my email box asking me to read, write a review, publish the review here and give this book five stars on Amazon. I do get review requests for NLQ on a regular basis, so this was just another of those.

Quoting Quiverfull: God Doesn’t Look For The Most Able?

by Adeye Salem from No Greater Joy Mom - Embryo Adoption FAQThe new clinic (Snowflake (tm) where Adeye plans to have all of those frozen embryos implanted at is apparently also enabling the Salems to promote themselves to everyone as the go-to answer folks for questions.

Quoting Quiverfull: Adoption Links Lead to Book Store Cheer Up?

From Nancy Campbell's site Above RubiesRemember some years back when Nancy was pushing adoptions from Africa? She adopted a pile of children, one of her daughters adopted a pile of daughters all the while Nancy was trying to get everyone to go to Africa and adopt. Remember how suddenly all mention of her adopted African children stopped and she said nothing more about adoption? Nothing was known about what had happened until Kathryn Joyce's book on Evangelicals and international adoptions - The Child Catchers: Rescue, Trafficking and the New Gospel of Adoption and a few articles came out telling of the failed Campbell adoptions and her African children sent away. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Choices?

by Adeye of No Greater Joy Mom - Fighting For LIFE!You remember this lady? She's the one that is adopting the four frozen embryos from another mother who will not be using them. She plans on being implanted in December and is unconcerned that other pregnancies using embryos from this mother have resulted in profoundly disabled children. Now the clinic is asking that they agree to a selective reduction if more than two embryos implant. Adeye is having none of that. Because Jesus. … [Read more...]

by Vyckie Garrison (Editor's Note: This was originally published on NLQ back around three or four years ago. Sharing again as it seems appropriate in light of our recent discussions about Mary Pride)A couple months back, I received an email from Mary Pride -- apparently, she's feeling the pressure since Frank Schaeffer mentioned her in his latest book, Sex, Mom & God, and has been talking in various interviews about her role in founding the Quiverfull and Christian Patriarchy movements with her book, The Way Home: Beyond Feminism and Back to Reality.If you Google "Mary Pride" -- NLQ comes up 4th on the results page -- I'm guessing that's how she ended up emailing me: … [Read more...]
