Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Believe Doctors?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from Preparing To Be A Help Meet.Com - Pregnant With CancerEditor's note: So now Debi is denigrating doctors, people highly educated in the scientific field medicine as not being credible. Guessing what what little she's saying about the situation of the mother that the mother was advised to either abort the baby or deliver very early in order to have the best odds for surviving the cancer. It's a hard choice and one that each person needs to approach on their own, decide what they can or cannot live with and make without someone with zero knowledge and education, like Debi, shaming them. … [Read more...]

Zero Tolerance: Manly Temper or Ungodly Outburst

Screen shot from Christian Post

by S.J. Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink Flamingo The Anger Buster Rap by Barbara Gruener When anger chooses me, here’s an important fact: I always get to choose exactly how I’ll react. I don’t need to fight or shout, pout and cry; I have some healthy strategies for management I try. I write or draw or count to ten, I talk it out or go outside to play. I take deep breaths or exercise until my anger goes away. So when anger chooses you, and it will, that’s a fact! Why not try my healthy ways to help you react. … [Read more...]

News Round Up: Kevin Swanson, Matt Walsh and Other Evangelicals Behaving Very Very Badly

I was going to use each of these news stories individually but there was such an overwhelming flood of awful it just makes more sense to do long posting with a list. Let us never forget what their true agendas are. First up comes from Arizona.Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen wants there to be a federal law that forces everyone to go to the church of their choice every Sunday in an attempt to bring morality back to the nation. While she's claiming her statement was of the moment and flippant it's a scary thing to discuss in a nation built on freedom of religion. … [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...]

Part 2 – Chapter 1: Filling the World to Overflowing – Be Fruitful and Multiply Review

befruitful

NLQ Book Review of Nancy Campbell's 'Be Fruitful and Multiply' by Suzanne TitkemeyerSorry it's taken this long to get to the end of the first chapter but every day I saw this book sitting on the edge of my desk, would stare at it and mutter 'um, no.'Let's get started. Nancy starts this section by saying that everything we're heard or read about the world's overpopulation problem is a bunch of malarky. Yet she offers no studies, no facts or figures and no scientific basis at all. Just the Bible. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Egalitarians Serving God of Self?

quotingquiverfull

by Johnathan Leeman of 9Marks - Complementarianism & the Local Church: Editor's NoteEditor's note: Magnificent Straw Man construction by this man. He doesn't come right out and say that being an eglitarian is rooted in selfishness, but he dances around it with Christianese. Evangelical gobblety-gook. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: All Feminists Hate Women?

quotingquiverfull

by Paul Washer from I'll Be Honest.com - Recovering Biblical WomanhoodEditor's note: This is one of the big lies in Quiverfull Evangelicalism - that feminists want all women to be men. Nope, they want all women to have a choice in how they live their lives, not be forced into gender-prescribed roles against their will. But the very religious finds the idea of free agency for women to be too threatening to their masculinity. What weak grasps they must hold on their own masculinity to be so threatened by women's choices. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce For Christians Ever Because It Causes God’s Judgment?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Beautiful Attitude ContinuedEditor's note: Colin seems to think that every single thing that doesn't line up with his personal interpretation of the Bible is going to cause God to thrash and trash the earth and all it's inhabitants rather soon. Somehow I get the feeling that he really wants that final judgment to happen as soon as possible. There is so much in the world of Quiverfull theology that wants others judged and throws shade on anything or anyone not part of the select group. What a way to live! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What Happened to the IFB?

quotingquiverfull

by David Parton from What Happened To The Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Movement? - What Happened To Us?Editor's note: While parts of the IFB fall clearly in the harmful Quiverfull theology I have to give this man credit. He's asking the hard questions as someone in the IFB movement. Too bad other flavors of religion in Quiverfull are not asking and examining the same question. It can only be positive when those involved in the more cult-like versions of Christianity start critically thinking about why it doesn't work. What questions do you think Quiverfull churches should start asking? … [Read more...]
