Quoting Quiverfull: Yoga Pants Are a Nihilistic Threat?

Read the original article in the Washington Post (not the Washington Times as Lori claims). Notice that Lori also says that one of the problems with yoga pants is that they are 'classless', not as in saying they … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Should Benefit Men?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Men Are Learning That Marriage is Nothing Good For ThemThese are not written by Lori. but by her commenters. By first what sounds like one of the Men's Rights Activists that Dalrock and Biblical Gender Roles appeals to. Another of Lori's commenters explaining how modern marriage in their eyes does not benefit the man at all. Interesting that both Lori and the MRA guys have the same view of a perfect marriage. This says nothing good for the state of marriage in the CPM.  … [Read more...]

Too bad he does not seem to understand that he's banned and this is a fact. Quoting this piece because he keeps saying bad things about the gays and then turns out and tries to say his ministry is not about homophobia. Such incredibly strong cognitive dissonance! … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Are We Degenerating?Editor's note: Nancy is bemoaning what she sees as a horrible slide into perversion that came first through movies. Then she shifts to television. Knowing that Nancy was raised never going to movies because she was afraid the Rapture would come and she'd be left behind is rather revealing. No 'Flywheel' or 'God's Not Dead' for her. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Offending Others For Jesus?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Stir Up the PotEditor's note: Nancy is now saying you must offend others for Jesus. You have to get out there and tell everyone else they are doing it wrong.
