Quoting Quiverfull: Keeping Your Wandering Feet (and Vagina) Home?

If you Google Image the words "Harlot Feet" most of what you end up with are pictures of fancy handknit socks!

by Vaughn Ohlman of True Love Doesn't Wait - Wandering FeetWe haven't visited Mr. Ohlman in quite some time, but he seems to be under the mistaken impression that one of the recent QQ pieces where we were quoting Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies as well as other women was something he posted.Nope, the last time we posted anything by Vaughn was way back in February, mere days after St. Valentines Day - Being A Stay At Home Mom Stops Affairs. Here's a hint, it doesn't! That was the only time Matthew Henry has come up on NLQ. Von, adjust your calender or stop doing whatever it is that is robbing you of your sense of time/date/reality.In that piece we were discussing Titus 2 and … [Read more...]

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 208—209Debi is really good at scaring women into doing just as she says. Have you noticed that? If you don’t submit to your husband and have sex with him any time he asks . . . you will end up divorced and living in a dumpy duplex. And so on.

Scary consequences.According to the word of God, I, one of the aged women, an commanded to teach the young women to be keepers at home. This is the sixth … [Read more...]

Reposting: How I Lost Faith in the “Pro Life” Movement

birthcontrolabortions

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismEditor's note: This has been previously posted here at NLQ almost two years ago. In light of the recent piece on what some Christian Fundamentalist Evangelicals such as the Duggars and Steven L Anderson erroneously  believe about female anatomy, birth control and biology this seems like a perfect time to revisit this piece. Libby Anne did an excellent job researching and numbers crunching to refute the Christian Mythology of birth control!The spring of my sophomore year of college I was president of my university’s Students for Life chapter. The fall of my junior year of college I cut my ties with the pro-life movement. Five … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Are Just Enjoying Your Illness Too Much?

enjoyingsickness

by Pat Robertson from his show "The 700 Club" as quoted by Right Wing Watch - Healing Prayers Sometimes Don't Work Because People 'Enjoy Their Sickness'“There are some people, you know, they enjoy their sickness. That is terrible to say but that is their excuse not to compete, ‘well I’d love to compete but my lumbago’s got me so I can’t do it.”QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders or their followers/enforcers and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverful … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public High School is… a Concentration Camp?

This a concentration camp - Auschwitz

by Ray Fournier from No Greater Joy magazine - From Behind Enemy LinesHave to wonder if this guy has ever actually visited a prison or a concentration camp since he's so cavalierly tossing about those descriptions of the high school he teaches at. I do know one thing, if this guy was teaching any of my children after reading this article filled with religious hyperbole I'd go down to that school and ask to have them transferred out of his classes. Breaking Godwin's law again seems to be something the extremes in religion love to do.  … [Read more...]

When Love Isn’t Enough – The Musser Family Tragedy – Part 3

The Musser daughter behind the bride is the same as Katie who Susanna is holding. Tommy is the same age as the son between the groom and Tommy in the back row.

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's Note: There have been some who've questions why NLQ is posting this series because they think it has nothing to do with what NLQ does. But the Musser story is the very thing that is the heart of this site, Kid-collecting Quiverfull evangelical Christian families that believe they are doing 'God's Will' by having as many children as possible, yet failing to realize that by doing so they are parenting those same children in the most minimal ways possible. Sometimes this type of lifestyle and theology leads directly to tragedies such as the recent death of Tommy Musser. Had his mother been less burdened with caring for the … [Read more...]

At four months old, he was placed in an orphanage.   The orphanage young Tommy was placed at was hell on Earth.  The director "modified" the foods fed to the children to prevent them from growing normally.  By doing this, the director kept the children permanently in the youngest/weakest group of the orphanage where the orphanage received the most funds for the children.  Tommy was listed at age 15 as "Male child at 15 years of age, with the following diagnoses: Infantile Cerebral Palsy – Hypotonic form; Severe lagging behind in the physical and neuro-psychical development; Severe p … [Read more...]

News: About Robin Williams Tragic Suicide

Robin Williams in a rare dramatic role on NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street". He was nominated for an Emmy for his performance.

I'm sure by now you've heard that comedian and actor Robin Williams took his own life yesterday. While Robin wasn't Quiverfull or part of the fundamentalist evangelical Christian world his passing reminds us all again that those in the CPM believe all sorts of myths about depression and how to handle it. They marginalize the condition and treat depression sufferers as though they caused the condition themselves. No compassion and no encouragement to seek healthy treatment.Even as Robin Williams made so many people laugh he himself suffered from depression for many years.  … [Read more...]
