Quoting Quiverfull: A Tax on Working Mothers?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles at Biblical Gender Roles.com – Lindsey Graham Says We Need to Import Other Country’s(SIC) ChildrenEditor's note: So this is more from the piece we quoted last week involving Lindsay Graham saying we would need to import workers to offset the coming large number of baby boomers retiring. In this part BGR's wants the government and our tax system to reward Quiverfull families with lots of children and stay at home mothers, while penalizing any mother with children that does dare to work outside of the home. There's nothing taking into account the fact that for many families, even those where the mother would like to stay home with the children or feels massive gui … [Read more...]

Two Male Patrick Henry College Students Blame Females For Their Lust

Image by Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserAs I have shared before, Evangelical young men are taught that they are weak, pathetic creatures easily led astray by mere exposure to too much female flesh. A little cleavage or a tight blouse has led many an Evangelical man to the slaughter.  Instead of being taught to own and control their sexuality, many Evangelical men whine, moan, and complain about women “tempting” them to sin. Well, the moaning part is them masturbating after seeing too much of Sister Sue. Let me give an example of this kind of thinking. A year ago, Homeschooler’s Anonymous published a 2006 letter written by two Patrick Henry Colleg … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week – The Blood Moon, the Pope & Wishing For the End of the World?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.In this past week we've seen many fundamentalist and evangelical Christians, not all of them quiverfull, saying some rather strange conspiracy theory type things over the 'Blood Moon' that will be happening on the 28th. Yesterday, the 23rd, was supposed to be a day of disaster with an asteroid hitting earth and ushering in the End Times. There's been talk of demonic riots in Europe being part of this End Times and lots of conspiracy theories and complaining about the Pope. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So God Invented Clothing?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - The Bikini is Destroying the Christian Girl's View of ModestyEditor's note: First, it's been considered 'normal' to swim nude by most Europeans for a lot longer than the advent of the bikini. Europeans are much less sexualized or hung up on the idea of unclothed body parts. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but weren't Adam and Eve nude in the Garden of Eden until they ate from the tree of knowledge, which made them feel shame over their nakedness, leading to them donning leaves? God seemed totally cool with the two of them hanging out in their birthday suits in the garden. Their own shame led to the clothing, not God suddenly opening up a ancient Brooks … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sports Uniforms Are Not Modest?

quotingquiverfull

by Bethany Baird from Girl Defined - Having Courage When the Bathing Suit is Way Too SmallEditor's note: Should the modesty level of a uniform worn for group sports really be that much of a problem? Why is everything in the world of fundamentalist / evangelical world so much more difficult than out in the world? You play basketball, then you don the shorts and shirt, you swim you wear your team swimsuit. It is really not that hard. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Higher Education Considered ‘Evil’?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the recurring themes in fundamentalist and some evangelical quiverfull Christian circles is the idea that any education that is not obtained either through some sort of post-homeschooling online training or at an approved Bible college is somehow wrong, flawed or evil. One blogger, Fire Breathing Christian, has taken the idea even farther, claiming that it's part of Satan's plan to destroy Christianity. … [Read more...]

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman from Under Much GraceOriginally published January 2012. This is part of a series on Understanding How Emotional Development in Childhood Affects Adults: Fostering Spiritual Abuse via the “Roots of Victimization”There are many excellent Christian books concerning dysfunctional family dynamics -- that is besides the Book of Genesis which contains the best archetypal examples of how you should NOT relate to other family members!

Mythical Creation Science: Who Was Cain’s Wife?

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from When Cows and Kids CollideA common problem pointed out by people who can read is that Cain's wife came out of the blue.

Quoting Quiverfull: Public School is Creating Indoctrinated Herd Mentality?

quotingquiverfull

Ray E. Moore of Exodus Mandate as quoted by Raw Story - Christians Urge Parents to Save Their Kids From Indoctrination With an Exodus From Public SchoolsEditor's note: I don't think that our government is organized enough to have an actual agenda to turn all American children into an unquestioning herd of robots like Moore is claiming in the first part of his piece. While Common Core may not be the best thing for education, it remains to be seen, it's not trying to indoctrinate Christian kids to leave the church. Part martyrbating and part fear mongering. Every parent should be free to decide what type of education they want for their children and what will be best suited for each … [Read more...]
