Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Your Husbands Obsessions?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Obsessions Editor's note: We'll be sharing this article in bits and pieces over the next few days since so much of it is so sheerly awful. It's one of the clearest examples of an over bearing husband's crummy behavior in the world of Christian Patriarch Movement and is rife with abusive behavior and explaining/minimizing that same behavior. Today Debi explains about Michael's hunting of those wascally wabbits and what happened in the aftermath of his hunting she had to deal with. … [Read more...]

A Film That Helps Us Understand Why Pearl Becomes Appealing: How do parents get caught up in extreme practices?

Image from Cindy Kunsman - Under Much Grace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceA few years ago, I attended a professional conference that dealt with addiction which featured John Bradshaw as one of the speakers. I didn't like his old PBS series on codependency and families, but in recent years, I've found his lectures and books enlightening. He points out well, much like Alice Miller does, that corporal punishment in particular destroys critical thinking and makes a person ripe for manipulation. In a talk, much of which referred back to his own history of abuse, he ended up mentioningFocus on the Family and Richard Fugate as examples of ideologues who recommend abusive practices in their books. I approa … [Read more...]

Review: ‘The Zimzum of Love’: Introduction to the Series

bookreview

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Hello, again! I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season. Mine was a good, long break that I definitely needed– didn’t really realize how much I needed it, although by the end of last week I was antsy to get back to work. Unfortunately, I bruised/broke my tailbone this weekend, which has made sitting down … uncomfortable. Right now I’m anticipating being able to keep to my schedule (except for this week– period week), but we’ll see how it goes. I’m not going to push myself, as how fast my tailbone heals depends almost entirely on how careful I am with it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Is Meant Only To Serve God?

Quoting

by Francis and Lisa Chan from The Gospel Coalition as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Marriage and EternityEditor's note: LAF seems to be laboring under the idea that marriage is mostly about serving God. Did I miss that part of the Bible because I don't remember anything said about the primary function of marriage was serving God. What about those people that say that the primary function of marriage is to keep you from sexual sin, or to increase the kingdom by birthing a quiverful of righteous arrows? Seems to me that different groups put different spins on marriage instead of recognizing it for what it is, a union of two people who love each other and want to spend every day for t … [Read more...]
