Quoting Quiverfull: Panic Attacks Happen Because You Don’t Trust God?

by Savabrown14 from Loved By I Am - An Anxious HeartEditor's note: This is much the same as the poison being spread by Tim LaHaye in his book "How To Win Over Depression" that SASBN member Samantha Field was reviewing. Instead of admitting or realizing that anxiety, fear and panic can happen because of circumstances or even the chemical load in your own brain and getting professional help dealing with your feelings it's always 'You are not trusting God.'

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?! - Okay, I VotedEditor's note: This is Pastor Steven L. Anderson's wife's response to another piece quoted here where she explained all the reasons why women should not vote. She got push back on that issue from her own group of supporters. Here's how she claims she votes. Lots of shaming and blaming as usual. Emphasis below mine on something she claims others do when it's obvious she too wastes time online. I would check to see if her pants were on fire, but she thinks wearing pants is a sin. Is her skirt scorched and smoking yet? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Throwing Shade on Korea, ISIS and Abortion Because Jesus?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Mourning Over What Grieves ChristEditor's note: Colin is in rare form in this post.

Trigger warning if you go to his blog, this posting is all about denigrating a woman in distress who is trying to work … [Read more...]

by Steven Ertelt from Life News - No  Greater Love: Putting the life of her unborn baby first; mother dies after giving birthEditor's note: Life News uses the death of a woman who from all accounts wasn't Quiverfull to make a point about how good Christian mothers are supposed to carry pregnancies that will end their lives to the end, no matter what the doctors advise. They are canonizing the dead women Suzanne Mazzola as an example to be looked up to instead of a woman who took a risk and paid the price. It was her decision and her's alone to make, but typically Life News ignores that. If they had their way that decision would be made in advance for all women. … [Read more...]
