Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Are Aiding The Coming The Anti-Christ?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine - Prophecy, Preparation, and PanicEditor's note: I'm sharing this because most of the people I know that are still either in the Quiverfull movement or are still hardcore evangelical or fundamentalist Christians are carrying on about the return of Christ and the end of the world occurring sometime between Sept. 15 and Sep. 23. Just a few weeks away. Even Charisma News is getting in on the end of the world bandwagon with this article. Too bad the writer doesn't seem to realize that the day he's predicting that the US stock market will crash is a Sunday and the market does not do active trading on Sundays. But we all know facts never stopped a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Representing Your King?

by Elizabeth Botkin from Visionary Daughters - What Every Christian Girl Can Learn From KateEditor's note: Almost two years of radio silence from the Botkin sisters, save for the occasional paid online seminar. Neither of them married in that time frame and no one really knows why they suddenly went quiet instead of continually flogging their restrictive lifestyle. But in this piece Elizabeth says that Kate Middleton, wife of the future king of England Prince William, represents the crown in how she dresses, that she doesn't dress or style for her own tastes but to bring glory to the British royal house. I doubt that she picks everything she wears with no amount of her own personal taste … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Upside Down World – LAF Now Claiming Unwed Pregnancies Not Sinful?

by Chad Ashby as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Brothers and Sisters, Unwed Pregnancy is Not a SinEditor's note: While I agree with Ashby that there should not be blaming, shaming or condemnation when someone turns up pregnant out of wedlock it's  not been my experience that places like PRCs or even the pages of LAF are very safe places. This is exactly the kind of ridiculous hypocrisy that the world looks down upon in the churches, saying one thing, doing exactly the opposite.  Even the places that treat unwed expectant mothers well tend to turn and blame them the moment the baby is born and the mother attempts to sign up for any social network benefits. You cannot have it both w … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Love Being Home Or Else?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - What Is Your Favorite Place?Editor's note: Again Nancy spends a lot of time making sure that women know they have to have a good attitude, no negative thoughts or emotions or ELSE! She makes no allowance for those fundamentalist homes where there are 19 children in a two bedroom home under 1500 square feet or if there are serious issues with housing everyone safely or in a pleasant way. It's all shut and smile even if you live in a ramshackle hovel. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Nagging and Your Husband Will Stop Watching Porn?

by Todd Friel from Wretched TV - A man stops watching porn after his wife stops nagging himEditor's note: This guy claims he's like the Christian version of Jon Stewart and seems to think his online show is the Christian equivalent of 'The Daily Show'. Not even close. What he is seems to be a snarky-esque hipster version of Pat Robertson. Here he's claiming that the way to get your man to stop with the porn is by your kindness and submission. Has that ever really worked for anyone you're known? Or is it just a piece of Christian mythology? … [Read more...]

A Few Thoughts on Abortion and Planned Parenthood Videos

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserI’ve been asked to give my take on the Planned Parenthood videos.When it comes to Planned Parenthood’s mission, to provide healthcare to women, I am 100% in their corner. Providing abortions is a small part of Planned Parenthood’s services, and defunding Planned Parenthood would have a deleterious effect on the health of poor women. Attempts to defund Planned Parenthood are driven by religious belief and bad science. We live in a secular state, one that supposedly separates church and state and one that values science; yet, when it comes to abortion, the debate is framed by religious claims that result … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Have Your Babies In Your Teens?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Women's Ovaries Don't Agree With FeminismEditor's note: Clearly BGR, or as NLQ SASBN member Bruce Gerencser likes to call him Coward Behind The Screen CBtS, believes the same false logic as Nancy Campbell that our world is under populated and some big disaster will happen unless we all have huge families of many children. That's not so, this is another lie that fundamentalist quiverfull Christians believe that has no scientific basis in fact. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Filled With Mega Sin?

by Voddie Baucham from Exodus Mandate - 5 Reasons NOT to Sent Your Kids Back to Public SchoolEditor's note: Many of Voddie's other four reasons are just as filled with blaming and scare tactics as this bit. But the claims of 'brutal beatings' seems to be something that is more associated with homeschooling done the Michael Pearl 'To Train Up A Child' way than at any public school. Homeschooling is also rife with abuse, a fact that Voddie seems not to realize. At least at public school teachers are mandatory reporters of abuse, unlike homeschool, where abuse gets hidden or denied until there's a dead body. Oh and I am so hoping Voddie decides not to pay  his taxes, as he seems to indicate … [Read more...]
