Quoting Quiverfull: Let Me Tell You How to Look?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Your AppearanceEditor's note: Strangely enough Steve stays away from telling you to cover your bits and that skirts must touch your ankles, instead going right to ugliness, body modification and plastic surgery. That's pretty extreme and it's not like plastic surgery doesn't help correct legitimate conditions such as a deviated nose septum or having growths removed from your face. Anderson is right about one thing, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it is very subjective and personal. Interesting mentions in this piece about losing weight. One has to wonder if he is on his wife to lose weight considering how much she mentions … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Crying and Staring Are the Same Thing?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Rachel Maddow Offended at Bill Clinton For Calling Hillary a 'Girl'Editor's note: There is just so much awful and wrong with this opinion piece on Rachel Maddow taking offense at what Bill Clinton said, and it is not so much what it is that Rachel or Bill said. It's the ideas that Larry is coming up with, that women naturally cry exactly the same way that men stare like vile creeps at anyone they are sexually attracted to. Not all women cry, just like not all men are creeps who stare and get hard ons. Just Larry, his pals and assorted weirdos. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Less is More With Young Kids?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?? - Homeschool Tips: Young KidsEditor's note: While learning to sit still and concentrate is difficult for many young children is having the child do housework instead of sitting down to teach them to read really the best educational choice?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Your Advice Got Me Shunned?

by an unnamed Amish lady writing to Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - From Our Mailbox A 'Saved' Amish LadyEditor's note: This is the rest of the letter that Michael responded to with only scriptures and zero compassion. Another prime example of how following the Jesus the Pearls preach can really have bad real life consequences with some shaming for depression and mental illness that the Evangelical world loves to do. What would you advise this lady to do? Besides run far far away from any Pearl-related theology. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1- Your Advice Got Me Shunned?

by an unnamed Amish lady writing to Michael Pearl at No Greater Joy - From Our Mailbox A 'Saved' Amish LadyEditor's note: For once this might actually be one of the rare real letters to the Pearls. Kind of breaks my heart because after all of this in this part and the piece we're posting in the morning Michael Pearl's only advice were those scriptures that talk about rejoicing when you are rejected for following Jesus and that Jesus came to set brother against brother. No practical advice, no empathy, no understanding, just a pile of scriptures that basically say "Well what did you expect?" This is what toxic faith looks like. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising ‘World Changers’, Not Children?

by Unknown at A Wise Woman Builds Her Home - Reclaiming the Lost Vision of MotherhoodEditor's note: Another female cultural enforcer competing for alpha status on her claims that motherhood is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER!!!!!!..... While it is fun to think that every child you raise has the potential to be the most awesome of all time who will impact history, the reality is that 99.99% of people just aren't going to turn out to be that. And that is okay. The world needs everyone, from those in humble positions through exalted. This idea of raising superior people who will take over the world for Christ that flourishes in Evangelicalism and in Quiverfull is a ridiculous one in light of … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adrenaline Rush Staves Off Sexual Impurity?

by Shalom Pearl Brand of No Greater Joy - Adrenaline RushEditor's note: While encouraging your children to find their passion and guiding them through the hormonal waters of adolescence is a responsible thing most parents will do, it's not going to prevent everyone from impure thoughts and actions. People are all individuals, with differing needs, triggers and paths. Quiverfull loves to reduce complex issues down to simple formulas. Too bad that does not usually work out well for anyone. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be Frugal or God Will Take Away Your Money?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Living FrugallyEditor's note: Lori's talking about how being frugal is godly, and while I think personally it's a good idea to live within your means and try to put a little aside each month it's not always that simple. Plus, in the parts of this post I skipped Ms. Alexander is making out that modern society is so extravagant that we're just one Roman orgy of consumerism from a Mount Vesuvius of debt. It's hard to make yourself save and be frugal when incentives like interest rates are so low. Does how you handle your money have any bearing on how 'Godly' you are? Money does have power, and it's been my observation that those in church with money … [Read more...]
