Quoting Quiverfull: Why Good Christian Fathers Reject So Many Good Christian Suitors in Courtship?

Courtship

by Doug Wilson at Ladies Against Feminism and in his book "Her Hand in Marriage" - Why Courtship is Fundamentally AwedIn his book Doug Wilson is attempting to shoot down, point by point, the ideas in an article titled "Why Courtship is Fundamentally Flawed" by Thomas Umstattd Jr.  If you haven't seen Umstattd's article you should give it a read. He does make some valid points about the courtship module.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rape is ‘Natural’?

rape

by Doug Wilson from his blog  originally. Since Doug Wilson removed the original blog posting because of blow back by others this is from Sierra's blog - The Phoenix and the Olive Branch It is important to revisit what it is conservative evangelicals actually believe, even if they've publicly backpedaled from it. Because we have forgotten the biblical concepts of true authority and submission, or more accurately, have rebelled against them, we have created a climate in which caricatures of authority and submission intrude upon our lives with violence. … [Read more...]

In Which Doug Wilson Splits Hairs and Fails at Logic

splittinghairs

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismI didn’t get into it when I touched on Wilson’s “Gaylag Archipelago” comment last week, but Wilson’s most recent post on what should be done about gay and lesbian individuals, in which he quotes from an earlier post of his own, sheds light on both the increasingly uncomfortable word dicing of those defending Leviticus and the utter lack of understanding these individuals have of their opponents. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Submission Keeps You From Being Victimized?

novictim

by Rebekah (Doug Wilson's daughter) at Femina - On Not Being A Victim 1. Christian women should be characterized by submission. No matter how much cool-shaming is thrown at the concept of headship and submission by the hipper-than-thou crowd, we can’t get around it that the Bible teaches this. Some people scream and run when they hear the word submission, and men like Doug Philips make that reaction understandable. Then over amongst the crowd that’s all gung-ho about submission there is frequently a scary lack of nuance. On the two sides of this question you find people waving their flags saying either, “submission is terrible,” or “submission is wonderful.” But submit is a a word like love. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Victim Blaming

blamingvictim

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Vice, Victims and Vision ForumRe: Doug Phillips and Lourdes Torres Given that, either his sexual attentions were entirely unwelcome, or they were not. If they were not unwelcome, then the affair appears to have been one of complicated and unconsummated adultery, with two participants. She was an adult, and so if his attentions were not entirely unwelcome, she was a player in the vice, not a victim. The victim in this would have been Beall, with two people victimizing her. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Controlling Even Personal Choices?

dressup

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - Dressing Up Without Playing Dress Up One of the things we need to remember when it comes to church architecture is that a building is corporate clothing. A building is how the whole church dresses. The trick is how to dress up without playing dress ups. … [Read more...]

Nightline Prime and Purity Balls

white-rose

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’ve seen a few documentaries about “Purity Balls” (which, every time I say that, my partner sniggers and I glare at him), and some are better than others. ABC’s Nightline Prime 20-minute documentary of the Wilson’s “14th Annual Father-Daughter Purity Ball” is not one of the better ones. The interviewer seemed to be either amused or baffled, and the only questions featured during the program seem to indicate a lack of awareness of what the underlying culture is– although she seemed to be catching on toward the end. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Children Are a Covenantal Blessing?

covenant

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog Children are a blessing. Scripture speaks that way, and so should we. But children are a blessing in the covenant. The cup of blessing at the Lord’s Supper is a blessing — it is called the cup of blessing. And yet, there were some at Corinth who were sick and who had died because of how they mishandled that blessing (1 Cor. 11:30). The mercy seat on the ark of the covenant was a mercy seat — but was Uzzah struck dead because he touched it (2 Sam. 6:7)? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Idols, or Not Feeding on Christ?

fear

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog and Mablog - Fear, Shame, and Guilt at Lunch High-techy modernism is still an idol, but it is now an establishment idol. It doesn’t rely on exuberant proselytizing to grow. It doesn’t ride on peer pressure (the way it used to). It is just as sinful to bow down to this idol of Science as ever it was, but the idol of Science is not causing tension in the fellowship of the saints the same way that the alternative stuff is currently doing. This is not because of anything inherent in any particular alternative treatment, but rather because as a social movement it is on the ascendant and is growing by proselytizing. The old idol is like a liberal mainstream den … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Christmas Word?

Don't know if Doug was referring to snarled parachutes, snarled yarn, snarling animals or what. Guessing he meant a parachute.

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...]
