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...]

News: Adoption Rehomer Justin Harris Does Not Want Raped Minors Having Abortions

news

You would think that Arkansas Representative Justin Harris, who has been in the news lately for rehoming his two adopted daughters with a rapist, would at least allow that scandal to die down before embarking in another controversial action. Now he's sponsoring a bill that will make it illegal for minors to receive abortions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Young Girls Going to ISIS Because of ‘Feminism’?

quotingquiverfull

by Mrs. Jessi L. from Ladies Against Feminism - Western Culture, ISIS and the Longings of the HeartWARNING!!! If you go to Ladies Against Feminism and click on their link to ISIS. NSA, Homeland Security and law enforcement routinely monitor visitors to sites linked with terrorist ties!Editor's note: One of the most awkward segues from 'ISIS Evil Muslim Terrorists' to 'They just need Jesus' seen in a long time. Reads like the author feels compelled to point out things in Islam that are considered good in Quiverfull and Fundamentalist Christianity, yet condemns the girls for not doing it for Christ. Everyone does need to feel as though they have a purpose in life, but who is to say … [Read more...]

Oh Daughters of Fundamentalism, Take Upon Yourselves the Cloak of Self-Deception

NLQ original image

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of Them I recently witnessed a young girl who is struggling a bit who expressed that she was a bit unhappy with her life, being told that she just needs to take it one day at a time, and be happy with it. To me it is shameful to express to a child or a teenager that their discomfort or unhappiness with a difficult situation stems from their own inability to cope. What message is being given to girls when they are told that although they are not the creators of the bad situation, they must be the authors of the solution, but the solution must only be to swallow their feelings and smile. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Pleading With Your Children Over Their Sin

quotingquiverfull

by Tim Challies from Challies.Com - Help! My Kids Are Looking At Porn!Editor's note: While there is some good advice in this article, such as not heaping your child with shame after you find them looking at internet porn, there's also some pretty less than perfect responses too. In the Evangelical Quiverfull world where everything is hypersexualized it's considered a sin to have normal childhood curiosity. So the parents go right into over reaction mode. Is this healthy? There are much better ways to handle catching your child looking at porn than most of this.  … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Faith Healing & Child Welfare – Who Decides?

Image NLQ original

by Leah Sottile from Aljazeera America - Idaho's Faith-Healing Debate Pits Child Welfare Against Parental RightsEditor's note: Interesting debate on who gets to decide if a child gets conventional medical treatment which goes back to the old assertion by HSLDA that parents 'own' their children. But when children start dying from preventable causes due to a parent's religious beliefs at what point does the government step in to save the life of the child? … [Read more...]
