Quoting Quivefull: Zealous Motherhood?

zeal

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies  -  Put Zeal Into Your Mothering Today It's difficult to accomplish anything very powerful when you are apathetic about it, isn't it? Many things can only be accomplished by the "zeal of the Lord." Isaiah 9:7 tells us that "Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end." How is this going to be accomplished? The rest of the Scripture says, "The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this." It is the passion and zeal of God that will perform this wonderful promise. When Jesus beheld what was happening in the temple which was called "The House of Prayer" he didn't stand by indifferently. He rose up in righteous indignation … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Wait, What? The Womb Creates Our Emotions?

mushroomcloudcoffee

Remember when NLQ used to use a dropped coffee cup emblem to represent the administrator's reaction to much of what was posted in Quoting Quiverfull? Today deserves a fleet of dropped coffee cups in reaction to Nancy Campbell's words about the womb. Here's a mushroom cloud of exploded coffee to represent my reaction posting this. by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Blessing of Your Womb Genesis 49:25 talks about the "blessings of the breasts, and of the womb." Blessings? Yes, God says they are His blessings to us as women. But they are ultimately His blessings to the whole world for without them mankind would come to a screeching halt! … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The Prophet – Part 1

preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids Collide The next three chapters cover Debi's conceptualization of the personality types of men.  I will give Debi credit for coming up with a schema that I've never heard or seen before.  The chapters on The Prophet (Visionary Man) and The Priest (Steady Man) are rather gentle and painless for a Pearl book.   She gives some breathtakingly bad advice but spends less time than normal running people down. "God tells us right at the beginning of the Bible that he created man in his own image. "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness" (Genesis 1:26)" … [Read more...]

crippled

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids Collide (Editor's note: Mel is referencing a quoted bit of the book "Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood" posted up at NLQ recently) This snippet of a book pushed all of my buttons at once.  I'd like to post the entire section first, then respond to the fallacies point-by-point. This was published at Desiring God website, but please don't give these lunatics any more web traffic. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Who’s Judging and Intolerant of Who Here?

biblehurt

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men -True Sons of God Do Not Tolerate What God Does Not Tolerate! The Cake Bakker (sic) in Colorado who is being forced by the powers that be to make a wedding cake for a gay marriage, which is against his convictions, is sickening to say the least. Although I understand, at this time, that the law in Colorado cannot force him, they will try to make him look an like evil and intolerant man. I pray he will stand strong in his convictions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Bakers Are Modern Day Holocaust Jews?

Nazi Cake

From Raw Story - Tony Perkins: Christians forced to bake cakes for gays like forcing  Jews into Nazi ovens Tony doesn't seem to realize the moment you invoke Nazis, Hitler, the Holocaust or the Third Reich you've invalided your own argument by your hyperbole. Perkins reached for a more recent historical analogy to compare the state’s actions to Nazi Germany. … [Read more...]

Farris: Patriarchy Makes Kids Gay and Atheists

michaelfarris

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, Feminism If you read my blog, you’re probably aware of the Christian homeschooling subculture’s patriarchy problem. A variety of prominent Christian homeschool leaders have been promoting patriarchal family structures at homeschool conventions and in homeschool publications for well over a decade, and two of those leaders—Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips—have recently fallen, engulfed in scandal. Michael Farris, another prominent Christian homeschool leader, has since come out criticizing these leaders and the “patriarchy” they taught. Now Farris has openly criticized “patriarchy” as part of a keynote address while … [Read more...]

Mary Pride denies founding the Quiverfull movement?

by Vyckie Garrison (Editor's Note: This was originally published on NLQ back around three or four years ago. Sharing again as it seems appropriate in light of our recent discussions about Mary Pride) A couple months back, I received an email from Mary Pride -- apparently, she's feeling the pressure since Frank Schaeffer mentioned her in his latest book, Sex, Mom & God, and has been talking in various interviews about her role in founding the Quiverfull and Christian Patriarchy movements with her book, The Way Home: Beyond Feminism and Back to Reality. If you Google "Mary Pride" -- NLQ comes up 4th on the results page -- I'm guessing that's how she ended up emailing me: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mary Pride Marginalized by Patriarchy?

marginalized

by Karen Campbell from her blog That Mom Mary 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: Jack Schaap Trying To Squirm Out Of Sentence

While dress codes are not the issue in the Jack Schaap conviction the same attitudes of sexualizing a teenager and trying to blame her for his own attitudes towards her are the same.

Now Jack Schaap is claiming that he was improperly represented by his legal staff at his trial for violation of the Mann Act and sex with an underaged girl. Schaap is claiming his attorneys promised him a sentence of no more than ten years, yet the judge gave him twelve years. It was fully within the rights of the judge to decide the length of the sentence regardless of what prosecutors  or defense team members asked for as a sentence. … [Read more...]
