Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Have Your Babies In Your Teens?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Women's Ovaries Don't Agree With FeminismEditor's note: Now he blames 'feminism' for the rise in older maternal age and the reason that 'selfish women' think that they are entitled to some personal happiness the goals such as careers and educations. Completely ignores the fact that pre-feminism and pre-birth control that women of all ages died in childbirth and that constant breeding does not produce 'healthy children.' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Have Your Babies In Your Teens?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Women's Ovaries Don't Agree With FeminismEditor's note: There is simply so much that is awful and typical of the quiverfull tendency to allow daughters to marry early that we're going to be examining this in parts like we do sometimes with the worst of Michael Pearl's writings. Apparently Biblical Gender Roles, like other patriarch-promoting types like Von Ohlman, believe that you should marry off your girls at peak fertility, which means not too long after they start their monthly cycles. He starts off the original article claiming that girls as young as 14 have less problems with pregnancy and childbirth than women starting in … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Sons to Marry Young?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Raising a Son to be MarriedEditor's note: Would it not be a better thing for society in general if we all raised our sons to be well rounded individuals ready to contribute to society and life on this planet instead of raising them to marry and start spewing out children immediately? Whatever happened to helping your son mature, settle into a means to support himself, and eventually a family, ensure he's educated, knows how to take care of himself, instead of having him marry right out of the family home with zero life experience? Going from control by mommy and daddy to a marriage that daddy oversees with no personal autonomy? Learning … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Brothers As Matchmakers Pre Screening Dudes So Dad Doesn’t Have To?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Need a Spouse...ANYONE?Editor's note: So now Debi's adding another layer that a potential spouse for a daughter must go through, the brothers. In one breath she decries the 'current complicated courtship hoops' that young men must go through to get to know a young woman and in the next breath adds this new complication of brothers. Why is it that things which are uncomplicated, simple and natural out in the world of unsaved heathens take on a convoluted crazy form in Evangelical Quiverfull? It's exhausting just thinking about it. … [Read more...]

Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book.

Quoting Quiverfull: Courtship Isn’t Spiritual But It Is Sexual?

quotingquiverfull

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog from 'His Hand in Marriage' as quoted by Vaughn Ohlman at his blog True Love Doesn't Wait - Courtship: That Volatile Sexual RelationshipEditor's note: This is one of those few times I don't entirely disagree with Vaughn Ohlman. Yes, sexual attraction and chemistry exist and they do play an important part in marriage and who we chose to marry. But life outside the Fundamentalist Christian Bubble is just not as sexually charged and focused as it is inside. Most people don't walk around thinking about sex all the time, unless they are a certain sort of sexually repressed Christian man. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Voddie Baucham Thinks Marriage is More Important Than Education?

Quoting

by Voddie Baucham from his 'Child Training' sermon at Hardin Baptist Church bravely transcribed by R.L. Stollar from Homeschoolers AnonymousEditor's notes: Apparently Mr. Baucham does not consider parents behaving in a responsible way and modeling a good marriage in front of their children to be any sort of preparation for marriage. Which is sad, because no matter how much you lecture, hector or try to teach someone any concept sometimes the best way of all is to simply be an example. Where did this concept in Fundigelicalism that higher education for your child is wrong come from? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marry Your Rapist Unless Your Father Says No?

marryingrapist

by Vaughn Ohlman from his blog True Love Doesn't Wait - Deal BreakersThis posting involves the reasons that fathers really shouldn't be refusing various courtship/betrothal suitors. The bit we're quoting below I've heard various pastors describe mostly as a rape situation (like in Deuteronomy 22:28-29), though a few has said it speaks of a man seducing a young woman. Like everything in the Old Testament it seems to be open to interpretation.  … [Read more...]
