Quoting Quiverfull: So Frozen Embryos Are Babies Too?

dollcollector

Remember the recent Quoting Quiverfull that our founder Vyckie Garrison commented on? The lady who already has adopted children and special needs children who is going to behaving more babies from frozen embryos of someone else where the other embryos resulted in children with profound disabilities? Apparently the Internet and it's commenters have given her some push-back instead of showering her with praise for her sacrifices. She's explaining her thoughts in her blog on the 'why'.Another kid collector. Hope things go better for this lady than some of the other Evangelical Christian child collectors. Child collecting is also at the heart of what being Quiverfull means. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Having Babies is Equal to Arguing With God?

womb

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Dare We Argue With God? God's creation of our bodies is perfect, yet it seems that man often thinks he knows better than God. Our great Creator blessed us with a womb to conceive and bring forth children. And yet many women hardly want to acknowledge they have a womb. If they do, they take action to make sure that it cannot function as God intended. Men also stop the function of their fertility to their own detriment.Many think that by having a tubal ligation or vasectomy they are saving their lives. The opposite is the case. When we try to save our lives we lose them. When we lose our lives for Christ's sake, we find them (Mark 8:35). Our own way … [Read more...]

When Love Isn’t Enough – The Musser Family Tragedy – Part 2

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideBefore Tommy arrived, Susanna was already exhausted: "Get up half an hour earlier because Daniel will be working with his dad and grandpa all day.  Katie and Verity are still dry; take them to their potties right away.  Have Peter fill the humidifiers.  Need to eat.  Make sure to fit in phonics flashcards with the little boys and catch up on our history reading.  Sit down and breathe in the sweet scent of clean heads. Ask John Michael to do his “cleaning the glass” chore before the therapist gets here.  Ask Laura to write baby bath on the grocery list before I forget again.  Have Joshua scrub up some sweet potatoes and put them i … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Commenting on Large Families Rude?

T-Shirts the Anderson parents wear in public

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours!?!?! - If I Had a Nickel Everytime Someone SaidIs it really rude to comment when you see families much larger than the norm? It seems to me if you have made up the t-shirts in that photo, you name your blog 'Are They All Yours' and you go out in numbered matching t-shirts you're openly seeking attention. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control is THE DEVIL!!!

lineinsand

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Line of Demarkation (sic, Nancy lacks spelling skills too) To which kingdom do you belong? God's kingdom is a kingdom of life, love, light, and liberty. Satan's kingdom is one of lies, deception, death, and destruction. He is a murderer! That's what Jesus said in John 8:44, "He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth; because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it."Because he is a murderer, no wonder he is the mastermind behind birth control, sterilization, and abortion. His plan is to stamp out life before it is conceived, but abort it if it is c … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mary Pride Marginalized by Patriarchy?

marginalized

by Karen Campbell from her blog That MomMary Pride was one of the first leaders in the modern homeschooling movement. Her book The Way Home was a powerful rebuttal of the radical feminist agenda and she minced no words as she made an appeal for rejecting all sorts of sacred cows. Mary was outspoken and certainly no model of the perfect patriarch wife and ruffled lots of male feathers. One of my fondest memories of homeschooling in the early days (nearly 30 years ago now) is of a conference in the St. Louis area with Gregg Harris, Michael Farris, and Mary … [Read more...]

News: Duggars Dealing With Bill Gothard Fallout

jessaseawald

Jezebel.Com has written a horribly funny but thought-provoking  piece on the changes through the years in the Duggar family along with how they are answering the criticisms for following Bill "Grabby Hands" Gothard - How are the Duggars dealing with the Gothard Sex Scandal?So, what follows may be the greatest Duggar based conspiracy theory that you've read this month. Ok, it's not that great but it's a theory. Now, it is well known among Gothard's that the kind of crunchy, curly home-permed hair favored by Michelle and the clan in the early season is based on preferences of Gothard, who loved long, wavy womanly hair and damn the woman who does not possess sacred this crown. Now it may … [Read more...]
