Quoting Quiverfull: Approving of Same Sex Marriage Will Make All Christians Third Class Citizens

quotingquiverfull

by John Zmirak from Church Leaders - If the Supreme Court Imposes Same Sex Marriage, You Could Lose Your ChurchEditor's note: One of the most perfect examples of Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist extremism and fear mongering seen in quite a while. In a mere three paragraphs the author manages to push these scary buttons: Islam, President Obama, Gay Marriage, Abortion, Evil Government. See what he did? He hit all the big fears that run through fundamentalist Christianity, he invoked the straw boogie man. Evangelicals and Fundamentalists love to be afraid. … [Read more...]

“How to Win Over Depression” review 28 -48

Image by Samantha Field

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Last week I spent a good bit of time talking about how Tim doesn’t understand the symptoms of depression and what those symptoms can look like; this week it becomes blindingly obvious why Tim so deeply and fundamentally doesn’t understand depression. In his chapter “The Symptoms of Depression” he makes it very clear that he has a mental picture of the ideal depressed person. All of his descriptions of the various symptoms point to the common cultural understanding of how a depressed person behaves and what they look like. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Allowing Christians to Discriminate Against Others is ‘Christian Persecution’?

quotingquiverfull

by Josh Duggar of the Family Research Council at last Saturday's rally in Washington D.C. From Raw Story -  Josh Duggar: Christians who aren't allowed to discriminate against gays are victims of discriminationEditor's note: It's pretty obvious that Josh doesn't understand that not being allowed to discriminate against others is not Christian persecution. It seems that Josh is not liking being discriminated against as much as he enjoys discriminating against others. It is some damn fine martyrbating he's doing. You can watch the entire interview at CNS News. … [Read more...]

Family Life Today: Poised to Take Over the Vacancy Left by Vision Forum Ministries

suzannetitkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen the news of the unwanted sexual encounters between Vision Forum's Doug Phillips and Lordes Torres came out followed by the closing of both Vision Forum Ministries and their for profit Vision Forum Inc it left quite a void in the world of Christian Dominionism, Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements. Everyone speculated who would take over from the powerhouse dominionist ministry of Vision Forum. But those that might have stepped in to fill the void left by the closing of Vision Forum had their own scandals to deal with: first Bill Gothard of IBLP/ATI, who is huge in the world of homeschooling and dominionism, was accused of groping teenagers working at ATI … [Read more...]

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLast year, Bob Gray Sr., retired pastor of Longview Baptist Temple in Longview, Texas, took to his blog pulpit to whine and complain about church women no longer obeying Deuteronomy 22:5: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. That’s right, Brother Bob is upset about Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church women wearing pants. Of all the things a pastor could or should be worried about, Gray is concerned about women wearing what he perceives to be men’s clothing. Gray write … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So God Visits Women Also During Rape and Incest?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Would You Like God to Visit You?Editor's note: Clearly Nancy is only referring to conception of a baby during marriage. But what about all the women who get pregnant from forced sex, date rape, violent sexual assaults or from being sexually abused by a family member? Where is God when those types of conceptions are happening. Following her reasoning either God isn't involved directly in conception or He is all about forced sex as well as marital sanctioned sex. Which is it? … [Read more...]

“How To Win Over Depression” – review 1 – 27

samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Before I get to what Tim had to say in the first two chapters, I want to begin by making sure we’re all on the same page, especially since Tim is going to confuse this issue in very serious ways. First, there are different kinds of depression. There’s major or clinical depression (which can also be chronic,) mild depression, seasonal affective disorder, and the depression that is a part if bipolar disorder (as well as others). Tim doesn’t distinguish between any of these, and his reasoning for why he mixes all of these up will become clear once we’re further into the book. However, the book focuses on helping people who have … [Read more...]

News – Calvary Temple Church Spiritual Warfare

 Was asked to post this to get the word out about Calvary Chapel in Sterling, Virginia. This isn't too far from where I live and my poisonous old church had a few of the walk aways from Calvary Temple. In this area of Northern Virginia there have been whispers of dangerous wrong doing for many years.  Calvary has been in the Washington D.C. news a lot lately over allegations of abuse, both sexual and physical, not to mention the many years of rumors here in Virginia over the spiritual abuse endemic at Calvary. … [Read more...]
