Quoting Quiverfull: Labeling Women As ‘Pushy Broads’?

quotingquiverfull

by Doug Wilson of Blog and MaBlog quoted by Tim Fall in response to an article by Jen Wilkins at The Gospel Coalition titled How Men Pastors Can Better Relate To WomenEditor's note: Say what??? Reminds me of that scripture that says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. He really must hate women if this is what he calls many of them! This is unacceptable language for someone who is supposed to a pastor. It proves that Wilson's brand of Christianity is a very unsafe place for women where they'll eventually be spiritually abused. … [Read more...]

News: CPAC and the Enforcement of Traditional Roles Only for Women

news

Not sure if everyone here has been following the last few days in the news and the coverage of the conservative Christian organization CPAC currently holding meetings in the Washington, DC area. Most of what's been reported in the media is a blender of Evangelical crazy, completely devoid of any common sense or reality. Example: "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson gave a paranoid rambling speech that claimed 'STDs are the revenge of the hippies' and that 'you should only have sex for 30 seconds or less'. Seriously, I'm not making this up - Talking Points Memo - Duck Dynasty Star Rambles About STDs and Nazis in CPAC Speech … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: When is it ‘Intentionally Available’ and When is it ‘Stalking’?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - How to be Intentionally Available Without Chasing BoysEditor's note: Remember all those screeds by the Botkin sisters, Von Ohlman and others in the Quiverfull Evangelical Christian movement about girls keeping their hearts pure waiting for courtship?  This is a bit different. The author started out by pointing out that Ruth pursued Boaz in a serious way to indicate she wanted him for her husband and she goes on to explain how a 'mature' Christian girl is allowed to do the same. The problem being is that some of this advice comes across like something someone obsessed might do instead of  a 'mature' person. Life is so much simpler outside the E … [Read more...]

Excessive Modesty Makes Me Feel Objectified

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live This last weekend we went to a large park with the kids and as we piled out of the van I noticed a Mennonite family was there. A teenage girl followed a toddler around the park, both of them wearing the long plain dresses that hid every shape of their young bodies. The mother sat on a park bench quietly watching while the husband and brother stood nearby arms folded, grimly surveying the area. I watched a young girl about age 9 climbing quietly up and down the play structures, her ankle-length dress billowing around her, her hair tucked into a small bonnet. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fawn All Over Your Husband or Else?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Is Your Best Friend?Editor's note: Instead of fear-shaming women into being the BEST MOMS EVER!!! this bit tries to fear-shame you into not having a best friend that isn't your husband. Sorry, Nancy, not buying it. Having friends not in the family is an emotionally healthy thing and doesn't mean you don't love or respect your husband. … [Read more...]

Christian Cliches “Don’t Cause Your Brother to Stumble”

Image from Wordgazer's Words

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsThis is the beginning of a series on various catchwords and cliches that Christians (particularly evangelical ones) are fond of using.  Like most oversimplifications, however, they usually give an inaccurate or one-sided view of the particular issue they purport to be about-- and often, they are based on misunderstandings of the Bible text(s) they are taken from. … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Faith Healing & Child Welfare – Who Decides?

Image NLQ original

by Leah Sottile from Aljazeera America - Idaho's Faith-Healing Debate Pits Child Welfare Against Parental RightsEditor's note: Interesting debate on who gets to decide if a child gets conventional medical treatment which goes back to the old assertion by HSLDA that parents 'own' their children. But when children start dying from preventable causes due to a parent's religious beliefs at what point does the government step in to save the life of the child? … [Read more...]
