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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Help! I’m Falling In Love With ‘GASP’! An Atheist!?

quotingquiverfull

by Paula Hendricks from Lies Young Women Believe - I'm Falling in Love with an AtheistEditor's note: Oh no! Because it's just not possible that two people could ever possibly respect and love one another if they don't agree on faith? I'm sure that will come as a huge surprise to the many inter faith couples out there that have been successfully married for many years. If your faith is so shallow that it's challenged by anyone not of the same faith then perhaps you need to examine exactly why that is. … [Read more...]

Male Blame Shifting Over Immodest Dress

suzannetitkemeyer

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog What Would Roger Sterling Do?So a couple of weeks ago I mentioned I have my alarm clock set to American Family Radio for the purposes of jolting my butt out of bed quickly on those days I must be somewhere in a timely fashion.This week I kept waking up to a man being interviewed by a ministry about his slide down the slippery slope of lust and fornication. He copped to a long list of sexual peccadilloes over the course of a few days time. It seemed like the second he left his home and homeschooling for a 'worldly' university he went from chaste to trying to insert his naughty bits into any open hole attached to a woman. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Immodest Pants Wearing Started by Feminism Post WW2?

quotingquiverfull

by Melissa  from Far Above Rubies - Modesty and My Changing WardrobeEditor's note: Another evangelical Christian mommy-blogger who thinks pants are the devil and likes to lump them in as a feminist device by selfish selfish women that want to do outrageous things like *gasp* earn their own money and be be comfortable when they do tasks ill suited for dresses. Sorry, but women started wearing pants before World War Two, it only became wide spread for reasons of practicality in the 50s and 60s. Women didn't suddenly live in pants and start demanding rights immediately following WW2. According to historical research the average American woman didn't start wearing pants most of the time … [Read more...]

Dianna Anderson’s ‘Damaged Goods’ Book Review

Image from Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’ve been looking forward to Dianna Anderson’s Damaged Goods: New Perspectives on Christian Purity for well over a year now, so when it came in the mail a few weeks ago I was thrilled to pieces. I have so much respect for Dianna’s writing (today’s piece on Christianity and Empire is a must-read), and I was happy that someone like her would be tackling evangelical purity culture in a book. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Adopted Kids Are Sexual Predators & Deviants?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Avoiding VacuumsEditor's note: Curiously Victorian-esque language by the lady asking the question, which makes me think this letter was another suspicious Pearl invention, just like so many of the published letters Debi and Michael claim to receive asking for advice. Takes a completely different yet just as wrong tact on the subject of adoption that those in the Rescue Adoption world. … [Read more...]
