News: More Allegations on the Justin Harris Rehoming Adopted Children Situation

news

More from Arkansas Matters.com . What follows below is a jaw dropping list of various allegations. After reading this please consider signing the Change.org petition calling for Justin Harris to step down from his political seat - Resign For Your Actions In Re-Homing Your Adoptive Daughters. Why isn't the State of Arkansas charging Justin and Marsha Harris with child abuse in the role of rehoming the girls and their treatment of the girls witnessed by the babysitter? Surely keeping a child deprived of human contact and locked in a room is cruel and abusive? … [Read more...]

Answering

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’.

Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce For Christians Ever Because It Causes God’s Judgment?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Beautiful Attitude ContinuedEditor's note: Colin seems to think that every single thing that doesn't line up with his personal interpretation of the Bible is going to cause God to thrash and trash the earth and all it's inhabitants rather soon. Somehow I get the feeling that he really wants that final judgment to happen as soon as possible. There is so much in the world of Quiverfull theology that wants others judged and throws shade on anything or anyone not part of the select group. What a way to live! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What Happened to the IFB?

quotingquiverfull

by David Parton from What Happened To The Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Movement? - What Happened To Us?Editor's note: While parts of the IFB fall clearly in the harmful Quiverfull theology I have to give this man credit. He's asking the hard questions as someone in the IFB movement. Too bad other flavors of religion in Quiverfull are not asking and examining the same question. It can only be positive when those involved in the more cult-like versions of Christianity start critically thinking about why it doesn't work. What questions do you think Quiverfull churches should start asking? … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt

Notquoting

NLQ SASBN member Boze Herrington has written a review of the new Netflix show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt" for The Guardian newspaper. If you've not seen this new television show you might want to watch a few episodes. It's a comedy and yes, it is somewhat silly at times, but the draw for anyone in the former Quiverfull movement is that the show tackles the difficult issue of what it is like when you leave a cult and your entire frame of reference on life is what you learned within the cult. It manages to capture that perfect awkwardness in readjusting or adjusting for the first time to the outside world. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Purity Rings Reflect Your Respect of God?

Sounds a little too too simplistic. Purity rings - What are your thoughts on those? … [Read more...]

Now he's sponsoring a bill that will make it illegal for minors to receive abortions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Young Girls Going to ISIS Because of ‘Feminism’?

quotingquiverfull

by Mrs. Jessi L. from Ladies Against Feminism - Western Culture, ISIS and the Longings of the HeartWARNING!!! If you go to Ladies Against Feminism and click on their link to ISIS. NSA, Homeland Security and law enforcement routinely monitor visitors to sites linked with terrorist ties!Editor's note: One of the most awkward segues from 'ISIS Evil Muslim Terrorists' to 'They just need Jesus' seen in a long time. Reads like the author feels compelled to point out things in Islam that are considered good in Quiverfull and Fundamentalist Christianity, yet condemns the girls for not doing it for Christ. Everyone does need to feel as though they have a purpose in life, but who is to say … [Read more...]
