Quoting Quiverfull: Movies and Television Are Sin?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Are We Degenerating?Editor's note: Nancy is bemoaning what she sees as a horrible slide into perversion that came first through movies. Then she shifts to television. Knowing that Nancy was raised never going to movies because she was afraid the Rapture would come and she'd be left behind is rather revealing. No 'Flywheel' or 'God's Not Dead' for her. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Silly Women Use Prozac?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Drug AddictsEditor's note: This article started out as a rant against boys taking Ritalin, but very swiftly morphed into Michael telling mothers exactly what was wrong with them. It's pretty sick and fits with our recent discussions in the comments on the lack of all compassion and disdain that Michael holds everyone but himself and Jesus. This is going to take a couple of days to unpack. Where does it say in the Bible that taking medicine for a problem is a sin? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Your Advice Got Me Shunned?

by an unnamed Amish lady writing to Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - From Our Mailbox A 'Saved' Amish LadyEditor's note: This is the rest of the letter that Michael responded to with only scriptures and zero compassion. Another prime example of how following the Jesus the Pearls preach can really have bad real life consequences with some shaming for depression and mental illness that the Evangelical world loves to do. What would you advise this lady to do? Besides run far far away from any Pearl-related theology. … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - You Are a HealerEditor's note: So it's not enough in Nancy's world to homeschool your children, grow a large garden, cook from scratch, keep an immaculate home, and have no negative thoughts and words, now you must also try to heal everyone around you and without much reliance on modern medicine? Nope, Nancy, there are things that are best left to doctors, like antibiotics when you have a serious infection, or insulin injections and monitoring your blood sugar.

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Pornographers and Queers Want to Molest Your Children?

by Rebekah Pearl Anast and Gabriel Anast from No Greater Joy – Safeguarding Your ChildrenEditor's note: I am curious how Rebekah defines 'perverted looking'? Was he drooling and panting or perhaps this was just someone unknown to her? How many awful likely fake ideas can we spot here?  Throwing shame at the neighbor boy? Check. Deciding a total stranger is a perv? Check. Behaving like an idiot to a poor authority-less gas station clerk and deciding they are also pervs? Check. ies … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Pornographers and Queers Want to Molest Your Children?

by Rebekah Pearl Anast and Gabriel Anast from No Greater Joy - Safeguarding Your ChildrenEditor's note: Are we even sure this 'magazine' Rebekah found was porn and not just something semi-normal like a Victoria's Secret catalog or a Hanes underwear catalog? And pornographic images stapled to trees in the woods? Seems extremely unlikely, unless maybe you are living in a small town where they keep nothing but convicted sexual predators. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Is Quiverfull Inherently Racist?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Today's question comes out of a discussion I recently had with a journalist about Quiverfull.
