A New Ministry for the Dillards: Part 3 – Saving El Salvador from Gangs

Another thing about Central America. Even El Salvador has five Walmart Super Centers and 92 Walmart retail locations. Along with McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, Popeyes, you name it. This is the Walmart in San Jose, Costa Rica right across the hwy from the airport. Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideIn previous posts, I've highlighted why I think the Dillards are unprepared for dealing with gangs and why SOS ministries is placing volunteers at undue risk.In this post, I'd like to discuss how SOS Ministry hurts the local population (including Jill, Derick and Israel if they choose to remain in the country.) … [Read more...]

New Ministry for the Dillards: Part 2 – Saving El Salvador from Gangs

Driving through Central America. Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideI'll admit it: SOS Ministries scares me.I've read through Carissa's blog post about her trip and I've read through all of SOS's online mission trip information.  SOS Ministries is playing a dangerous game that is likely to hurt the local populations they allege to serve and the volunteers they bring on the trips.Let's start with the potential dangers to volunteers. If you sign up for a short-term mission trip through SOS, you will be sent to El Salvador like the Duggars were.    The website has a PDF file for applications. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sharpness of Mind is Godly?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - It's High Time to Sharpen Up!Editor's note: This is not a commentary on the rightness or wrongness of the Republican presidential candidates but I have to wonder if Colin and I were watching the same debate as he seems to have seen something very different than I did. Sharing this because of his claim it's time for everyone to 'sharpen up' to debate others with a different spiritually or religion. Do you think that is really what will serve Christianity best in this time? Please, no fighting over politics in the comments. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Upside Down World – LAF Now Claiming Unwed Pregnancies Not Sinful?

quotingquiverfull

by Chad Ashby as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Brothers and Sisters, Unwed Pregnancy is Not a SinEditor's note: While I agree with Ashby that there should not be blaming, shaming or condemnation when someone turns up pregnant out of wedlock it's  not been my experience that places like PRCs or even the pages of LAF are very safe places. This is exactly the kind of ridiculous hypocrisy that the world looks down upon in the churches, saying one thing, doing exactly the opposite.  Even the places that treat unwed expectant mothers well tend to turn and blame them the moment the baby is born and the mother attempts to sign up for any social network benefits. You cannot have it both w … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Popular Culture Always Deemed ‘Demonic’?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.In my online readings this week I ran across an article in the Christian Post where a parent is asking for advice concerning their teenager's reading choices. The child came home with the first book in the immensely popular "Game of Thrones" series. The parents were unhappy he was being exposed to 'inappropriate' content.Here's what the writers at the Christian Post had to say about allowing anyone, much less teenagers, to read the GoT series: … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Imbuing Politicians With ‘God’s Favor’?

Answering

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Well here we are, mere hours away from the first Republican presidential candidate debates. One of the things that is interesting about the 2016 crop of Republican possibles is that many of them are claiming that God favors them and wants them to be president to restore America to a Christian nation again. At least their version of what a 'Christian' nation looks like. Two different Duggar-approved candidates are in the race, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum. Other prominent Christians and their ministries support others claiming to be God's choice, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God’s ‘Rights’ Are The Only ‘Rights’ That Matter?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.Com - Biblical Human Rights vs. American Human RightsEditor's note: There is just so much sheer awfulness here it's hard to pick out the worst part to quote so I'm using his summation. But be sure to read the entire blog posting. He's even claiming because slavery was mentioned in the Bible that it's a-okay for humans to own other humans as slaves. He doesn't seem to realize that if you don't believe the Bible is true, then you don't believe in those spelled out 'Biblical Rights' and our government will not force you to believe. Imagine how horrible if would be with guys like this seized government power, repealed the seperation of … [Read more...]

The First Steps Towards Understanding Jill and Jessa Duggar’s Fox Interview: Second Generation Adults in Cultic/High Demand Religions

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace A host of resources exist exploring the characteristics of the subculture of the Quiverfull Movement (which is often synonymous with Patriarchy within evangelical Christian homeschooling circles).  As the new generation that this movement produced finds their voice, there appears to be little information about the process of how this group in particular has affected the development of the now adult “arrows” of their parents’ quivers , especially for those who remain within their religious culture of origin. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Game of Porn – “Game of Thrones” Is Mind-Rotting Pornography?

quotingquiverfull

 by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog (linked through Do No Link: No need to give him any clicks towards the overwhelming flood of advertising on his site - beware the zillion popups! ) - Christians, Now Is Probably A Good Time To Stop Watching "Game of Thrones"Editor's note: Matt tries to make the case that "Game of Thrones"  watching is the same as watching pornography, that is is pornography. Clearly he has the same problems keeping away from porn as Michael Pearl seems to have in this week's article by Bruce Gerencser "Are You A Porno Freak?" What gives Walsh or Pearl the authority to determine for anyone else what we should or should not do? Did anyone really think … [Read more...]
