Quoting Quiverfull: Donald Trump – From Demonic to Angelic?

by Dutch Sheets as quoted by Colin Campbell at Meat For Men - Another Good Article by Dutch Sheets on the ElectionEditor's note: This is almost pure comedy considering less than a year ago, during the primary season both of these guys, Dutch Sheets and Colin Campbell, had taken to their bully pulpits to call Trump all sorts of nasty names and to promote Ted Cruz as the only 'Godly' choice. I wish they would just admit their real objection to Hillary Clinton, or even Jill Stein, is the fact that they are women. The misogyny runs deep. You get the feeling that Satan himself could run on the Republican ticket and these guys would rush to support him. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Change the Political World by Having More Babies?

by Wesley Strackbein from Unbroken Faith Ministries and Ladies Against Feminism - Possessing the Enemies' GatesEditor's note: This is the bedrock theology behind the entire Quiverfull movement and the Dominionists, out breed the raging sinful heathens so they can take over the world and force everyone else to live the same way. … [Read more...]

The GOP is Imploding as Evangelicals Support Donald Trump

I suppose we should really discuss what's been going down in the last 24 hours in the 2016 race for President of the United States. I don't want to, but things are moving at such a speed and with topics that are so cringe-worthy that it bears discussion. … [Read more...]

Why I Stand With Colin Kaepernick

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: While this posting is not directly related to the Quiverfull world I believe it does illustrate something all of us deal with after leaving toxic faith environments - realizing that the political and social views we'd been spoon fed at our old churches are harmful to others and this world. No matter if you think what Kaepernick did was right or wrong I think most everyone will agree we are on the edge of destruction in a way that has been egged on by the extreme Christian Right. … [Read more...]

The Johnson Amendment: I Agree With Donald Trump

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of BruceEditor's note: While the Johnson Amendment does not directly affect the entire Quiverfull movement it is something that many Quiverfull churches routinely violate. In our old church the pastor preached politics directly from the pulpit and any time a vote came up you could count on there being Intercessors for America voting guides sitting on every chair in the sanctuary in direct violation of the Johnson Amendment and the US tax code. Many so-called Christian ministries like IfA and the Family Research Counsel are nothing more than political action groups disguised as ministries who routinely break tax law without … [Read more...]

Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: Is This Appropriate – Republican National Convention Edition?

Uttered by Pastor Mark Burns last night at the Republican National Convention:Editor's note: We've watched the Evangelicals and others on the extreme right of Christianity go from candidate to candidate and proclaim them as 'God's Choice' It seems now that most are supporting the candidacy of Donald Trump, a man that couldn't even pick out a real Bible verse as his favorite, claiming that God picked Trump. Last night this is the prayer that opened the convention and it stands out as one of the most bizarre ever spoken at a political convention. Your thoughts? … [Read more...]

News – Evangelical Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz Leaves Race

After having been defeated in the Indiana primary last night Ted Cruz announced he was ending his run for the Republican presidential nomination. This is after various high level Republicans put their support behind his opposition Donald Trump. … [Read more...]

What Would America Look Like if it Were Truly… ‘Christian’

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding FundamentalThis season’s political climate and campaign have provoked me to revisit some of my formerly-held beliefs that America, it's foundation, founders and founding documents, is positively, expressly ‘Christian’ in identity and purpose. … [Read more...]

I’m From Iowa

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsEditor's note: Posting this in light of yesterday being Super Tuesday and the increasingly serious political season. Ellen's explanation of the Iowa caucus is interesting. Watching the Quiverfull Evangelicals try to figure out who to vote for is even more interesting. Nancy Campbell is heavily pushing Ted Cruz, while others are lining up behind Donald Trump, so it's anyone's race in the world of Christianity. … [Read more...]
