Quoting Quiverfull: The Only Allowable Birth Control in Quiverfull?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Q & A: Young Mom of Many Kids Struggling to do it AllEditor's note: Zsuzsanna acknowledges that back to back pregnancies puts a significant stress on your body and family but cannot even possibly consider that perhaps birth control might be the answer to ending back to back pregnancies. Breast feeding does not work for everyone as a method of spacing pregnancies. It's sort of like playing Russian Roulette, you might get by for awhile without getting struck by a bullet, but eventually you get shot. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Pills Kill Babies?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Why Birth Control is WrongEditor's note: I don't know if I should laugh or be jaw-dropped over the fact that Anderson clearly has no real scientific idea how birth control pills actually work. They don't 'kill babies', the ones on the market now prevent the egg from ever leaving the ovary so that there cannot even be a fertilized egg must less a baby. The older pills prevented implantation of fertilized eggs. But an egg is not a baby, a long way from it. We've moved past that. Too bad his science knowledge has not. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Birth Control Leads To Growing Instead Of Crisis Management?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours?Editor's note: The great comedy of this bit by Zsu is that in a previous entry she was complaining that church nursery was dangerous to children because of the adult to child ratio. Yet here she is saying that passing on the tradition of no birth control teaches you to grow from being stretched to your limits. So which is it? There must be so many children to adult for safety or not? She also was claiming that a nursery at a former church she attended was responsible for the deaths of  babies in the nursery. Surely if an alarming number of babies were dying at a certain church's nursery wouldn't we hear about that in the news? Would … [Read more...]

A Plea to My Millennial Sisters: Channel Your ‘Inner Suffragette’ to Keep the Doors From Swinging Backwards For Your Daughters and Theirs…

by Emily Nielson Jones of Christian Patriarchal Watch List For Parents - From her Linkedin post used with permission. "But our position on women in leadership is really not a major issue.  It’s just a minor issue to us, not a core matter of faith.”  (a representative of a popular Ivy League campus ministry speaking about their “complementarian” organizational structure which limits top leadership positions to men) Have you too heard this familiar refrain?  Or said something along these lines?Do you ever have this palpable sense that history isn’t just some distant set of events that you read about in a history book but rather feels very real and present?  That was my day yesterday.  T … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Steals Your Joy?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Effects of Birth ControlEditor's note: That sermon transcript archive at Faithful Word Baptist Church is like Christian in July, a treasure trove of misspelled, grammar-mangling, bad ideas, bad Bible translations pile of crazy. There's nothing that exposes the under-educated belief system of a Independent  Fundamentalist Baptist Church. Another pastor doubling down on the message of no birth control ever, have as many kids as possible and women should always stay home. It's a good thing that the Marie Curies of this world didn't follow that advice or we'd have been deprived of many useful things, theories and science. … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review 167 – 192

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comI think it’s possible that we might be over the hump as far as how terrible the chapters can get. The only sections left for the Lies Women Believe review cover children, circumstances, emotions, and the concluding segment. The “Emotions” chapter might be a bit rough, but today’s, compared to last week’s chapter, is a cake walk. Of course, almost anything compared to a doctrine that could kill women seems like a breeze.This week’s chapter covers what Nancy thinks about children, which means an extensive discussion on, you guessed it, family planning. IT’S UP TO US TO DETERMINE THE SIZE OF OUR FAMILY She roots her arg … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Any Suppression of Your Fertility is Wrong?

by Tamara Rajakariar from MercatorNet and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Do Women Need to Have Periods?Editor's note: This bit was said by a fertility 'practitioner' practicing in Australia.  Not a medical doctor. It is my understanding that with issues related to your period one of the first things that physicians tend to try to ease the problems are hormone-based birth control pills. Which is exactly the opposite of what this expert is saying you need to do. How exactly is using birth control to ease problems with your cycle causing women to be more masculine? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Is The Biggest Sin?

by Dale Ahlquist from Crisis Magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - G. K. Chesterton: It's Not Gay, and it's Not MarriageEditor's note: Interesting how in the world of Evangelical Quiverfull the Catholics as a group are considered not even Christians or saved. They are despised, looked down upon, treated like dirt, but let one of them state something that lines up with Quiverfull theology and they are quoted as if they were also part of the Evangelical Quiverfull movement instead of despised persons. They hold their nose and quote the Catholic. Quiverfull is filled with dangerous contradictions like this. … [Read more...]
