Quoting Quiverfull: Have Babies or Deprive the World?

quotingquiverfull

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: Part 1 – Delusions of Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - LaughingEditor's note: This was written back when the deaths of Hana Grace Williams and Lydia Shatz were all over the news with  news media speculating of the links between Michael Pearl's book 'To Train Up A Child' and a pile of dead children. Michael is attempting to justify his method of child beating as a legitimate way to raise children instead of the law-breaking child abuse it actually is. Dream on, Michael, because I'm seeing almost no children raised in extreme Christianity such as yours becoming anything beyond a manual laborer or the chronically under employed. Doctors? Lawyers? Psychiatric workers? I need a legitimate citation of his … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The HPV Vaccine Gives Girls Permission to Have Sex?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Physicians of No ValueEditor's note: Regardless of how you line up on the to vaccinate or not vaccinate debate it's a stretch at best to say that vaccinating a child against a possible future STD is giving them carte blanche to go out and start having piles of promiscuous sexual activity with anything or anyone. He misses the point that the reason Gardasil is given is to protect girls against an STD that leads to high rates of uterine cancer later. There is a long term goal benefit.Most of Anderson's sermon can also be distilled down to don't go to the doctor except as a last resort and the Bible holds all the medical wisdom … [Read more...]

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveEditor's note: I know many here have recently emailed me and I have not replied. I still cannot bend my thumb or several fingers or parts of my right hand and am having to get others to type as I dictate or update NLQ. I will attempt to answer all emails this week. Thanks for your understanding!For over two weeks now I've been mostly in the bed due to a systemic infection that nearly caused me to lose my thumb and part of my hand.

Quoting Quiverfull: Young Y-O-U-N-G Women Need to Marry and Have Babies?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - The Biological Case for Polygamy and Marriage of Young WomenEditor's note: This is pretty scary to me because medical research has shown that people aren't finishing physically maturing until their mid-20s. That's just about the time that BGR says you should stop having babies according to his post. And his assertion that you have lost 90% of your eggs by 30? That information is from only one single study, not the follow up studies done by places like the Mayo Clinic that dispute this finding. This lie about fertility was show on the "New Girl" a few years back and has been thoroughly debunked. … [Read more...]
