Quoting Quiverfull: African Americans Are The ‘Real Racists’?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - Joyous Kwanzaa? No Thanks!Editor's note: Every now and then one of the Quiverfull leaders will slip up and state that one of the aims of the Quiverfull movement is to outbreed darker races. Nancy Campbell has admitted it a couple of times along with a few others. Turns out, surprise, surprise, that Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of pastor Steven L. Anderson is also a bigot against blacks. … [Read more...]

Do Evangelical Beliefs Lead to Mental Illness?

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserDo Evangelical beliefs lead to mental illness? Yes and no. Certainly, Evangelicals, thanks to their religious beliefs, are, to some degree, deluded. They believe things that aren’t true, but I am not inclined to think that this means they all have some sort of mental illness.  All of us are capable of self-delusion. That said, I do think some Evangelicals are mentally ill, and thanks to their beliefs, they see their illness as God giving them some sort of inside information about the world. These Evangelicals are the religious version of Mel Gibson in the movie Conspiracy Theory. Let me illustrate this with a YouTu … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The HPV Vaccine Gives Girls Permission to Have Sex?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Physicians of No ValueEditor's note: Regardless of how you line up on the to vaccinate or not vaccinate debate it's a stretch at best to say that vaccinating a child against a possible future STD is giving them carte blanche to go out and start having piles of promiscuous sexual activity with anything or anyone. He misses the point that the reason Gardasil is given is to protect girls against an STD that leads to high rates of uterine cancer later. There is a long term goal benefit.Most of Anderson's sermon can also be distilled down to don't go to the doctor except as a last resort and the Bible holds all the medical wisdom … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Divorce Causes Mass Shootings?

quotingquiverfull

by Matt Walsh of the Matt Walsh Blog as quoted by It's The Women Not The Men - Good Guys  (linked through Do Not Link)Editor's note: This isn't to put down gun control or support gun control. This is being posted because it is a perfect example of QF Fundamentalism's tendency to take complex issues and reduce them down to something simplistic. That simple solution is always something 'Bible based' instead of researched, given any amount of deep thought or alternative solutions. Hungry? You must be lazy and the Bible says lazy people don't eat. Have depression? You're selfish. Sick? You must have sinned in some way... the list goes on and on. You disrespect others when you reduce … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Modern Medicine Denigrated?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.We've all seen the Quiverfull families that refuse all modern medicine, sometimes with rather dire consequences. I'm thinking of a lady at my former church that had a very treatable form of cancer yet refused all treatments because she believed that medicine was idolatry and that God would heal her. She's been six feet under for quite some time now, dying in horrible agony. Her husband took the insurance money from her death to buy a yellow Corvette, and marry a much younger better looking woman after the death of his wife. … [Read more...]

Why Do Fundamentalist Men and Women Dress Differently?

Image from The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserWithin Evangelicalism, especially on the far right of the Evangelical spectrum, women are considered subservient, second class, whoring Jezebels out to rob men and teenage boys of their virtue. Listen to enough sermons at the local Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church and you will likely conclude that seductive women are lurking in the shadows ready to expose a bit of leg and cleavage, bringing weak, helpless men to their knees and hopefully to their bed. After all, the Bible does have a story that warns of this very behavior: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Natal Nazis and Human Sacrifice?

quotingquiverfull

by Jim Bakker and Rick Wiles as quoted by Raw Story - Satanic temples are hidden in Planned Parenthood clinics as 'legal cover' for child sacrifice?Editor's note: We've tried not to feature or talk about the recent false allegations that Planned Parenthood was selling aborted fetal tissue being bandied about by the extreme Christian right, but failed and jailed former PTL pastor Jim Bakker and his pal Rick Wiles have some some really disturbing untrue things recently. I read this story and had to wonder what type of Jesus Juice they're chugging backstage to actually be able to make many of these statements with a straight face (or as straight as it gets with Bakker). Hoping what they are … [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...]
