Quoting Quiverfull: Denying a Link to Lydia Shatz and Hana Grace Williams?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - A Call to StandEditor's note: We've all seen Michael Pearl's official statement about the deaths of children whose parents followed his child training book 'To Train Up A Child'. We featured it here along with Debi's hysterical calling for the death of those that opposed them prayer request last year. Here's Debi complaining about the press linking their ministry and advice to the deaths of children. Towards the end of the piece she even manages to say that people that oppose their training methods are like Hitler's supporters and she mentions Hitler right off the bat. Does anyone know what 'lesbian homeschool website' she keeps referencing in this … [Read more...]

What are you Doing? – Chapter 1: Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

Today we dive right into our review of Let Them Marry Vaughn Ohlman's book on young marriage 'What are you Doing?' Warning, extreme levels of snark ahead. This book is so dreadful it's impossible to do a serious analysis of the material.Also, Von has updated his website and is now claiming he has been falsely accused of advocating pedophilia and child marriage. Was he ever accused of pedophilia? Not here. It was the selling of underage girls into common law marriages that most people are upset about. The possibility that he might be encouraging sex trafficking among his followers under the guise of it being somehow 'Godly' instead of what it actually would be - a crime. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – How to Beat Your Children?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – In Defense of Biblical ChastisementEditor's note: No matter how Michael words it the story about spanking the five month old in the car seat is always wrong! A child that age isn't capable of rebellion, defiance or understanding what his mother wants him to do. He's acting/reacting in an elemental way without reasoned measured thought. This is child cruelty. Notice how quickly Michael Pearl goes into 'The Rod' section? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschooling Keeps Creeps Off Your Daughters?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours?!? - Here or There?Editor's note: Now Zsuzsanna is claiming that keeping your girls homeschooled prevents out of wedlock pregnancies and molestation.  All of which is laughable if you look at the many times it's emerged that there are patriarchs that rape their daughters and sons, like Josh Duggar, that molest their sisters in the CPM. Obviously it is no guarantee either.  … [Read more...]

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’.

by Debi Pearl from No Greater joy – Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: So after accusing the letter-writer of sitting around eating bon-bons all day while reading and watching television Debi follows up with a little spiritual poison about not teaching anything of faith or being a prayer warrior. The implication is to leave all that stuff to the men folks and learn your place. … [Read more...]

Navigating Risks and Bounded Choice

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveDuring my last trip to Costa Rica we stopped for lunch that first day at a Frutas by the side of the road. These little open air fruit stands are everywhere in Central America when you venture beyond the larger cities.Neither Jim nor I knew what to expect. We were lured into stopping by the gorgeous display of tropical fruits. We hadn't eaten a thing since the airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida very early that morning and were pretty hungry. Tropical fruits suddenly sounded like a splendid idea in that moment.Turns out that the Frutas had more than just fruit. They had all sorts of foods and snacks including a … [Read more...]

Recognizing Pervasive, Poisonous Power in Marriage

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch The Shepherd “There are two kinds of power. One kills the spirit. The other nourishes the spirit. The first is Power Over. The other is Personal Power. Power Over shows up as control and dominance. Personal Power shows up as mutuality and co-creation. Mutuality is a way of being with a person which promotes the growth and well-being of one's self and the other person by means of clear communication and empathetic understanding. Co-creation is a consciously shared participation in life which helps one reach one's goals.” … [Read more...]
