Quoting Quiverfull: A Christmas Word?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - A Huge White Snarl Flapping Behind YouTrigger-warning! Doug is being very judgmental and hateful in his Christmas cyber altar call. So here it comes — a Christmas word to the faithless. I am using the word faithless in both senses. I am speaking to those who do not believe, and I am speaking to those who are being disobedient to what they actually do know (Rom. 1:19-20). Ultimately the two categories are only one, but I am speaking to those who are without faith and those trying to throw it away, wanting to pretend they never had it. … [Read more...]

Dude, Seriously? – Answering Kevin Swanson

 by Calulu cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeRecently Kevin Swanson, radio babbler and righteous rabblerouser against all things not homeschooling fundamentalist Biblical patriarchy has been making more of an ass out of himself than usual. It's not merely due to the fact that he has a new book to flog about and promote by calling everyone that doesn't agree with him an 'Apostate', a title that is also a big part of the title of his new book. Oh no, Kevin seems to be off the internet deep end this week. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Apostates Lack Love?

by Kevin Swanson at Generations With Vision - Troll Spews, Silly Women and Sons of Belial on the Internet Too many of these folks love the world of lust and flesh and they hate their brothers (or don’t love them very much, anyway).  Technically, it’s supposed to be the other way around. The Bible wants us loving our brothers, hating the world of lust and flesh, and hating the lust and flesh stuff that corrupts the brother.  It’s the third part of this that’s the hardest to track down. And yes, you can get too picky with your brother.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Who Decides the Definition of “Apostate”?

by Kevin Swanson of Generations With Vision - Homeschool Apostates and Kathryn Joyce's Sins And, yes, yes. We can see that faithlessness tends to be generational and builds on itself from generation to generation.I make no bones about it.  We’re in the minority.  The masses are moving towards apostasy. The millennial generation is far more likely to be pro-homosexual, pro-evolution, and pro-socialist than the previous generation. (Reference: http://www.pewforum.org/2010/02/17/religion-among-the-millennials/). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Crying in Our Petticoats?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - Bitterness and the Unsubmissive Wife But if every time we get to such a statement of what a wife’s fundamental lack of a submissive spirit might be doing in her relationship to her husband we get a histrionic reaction, then perhaps we are seeing a refusal on the part of certain women to see women as true moral agents. Feminists (including the professing evangelicals) are those who loudly … [Read more...]

Victims and Abusers and Why Church is Not Safe

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons[trigger warning for abuse] If you follow me on twitter, you might have noticed that I watched My Fair Lady this past weekend, one of my favorite movies from when I was younger, but a movie I haven’t seen in years. And while I enjoyed the nostalgia and singing all the songs again, it was not an entirely pleasant experience and I probably won’t watch it again. Watching Professor Higgins, listening to him sing “Let a Woman in Your Life,” realizing that he never uses Eliza’s name and instead prefers to call her wretch, insect, and baggage, and understanding for the first time that Professor Higgins is an abuser . . . … [Read more...]
