Foreword – ‘Be Fruitful & Multiply’ Review

NLQ Book Review of Nancy Campbell's "Be Fruitful & Multiply" by Suzanne TitkemeyerOriginally I was not going to do a chapter of my review on the foreword. But then I took a look at who actually wrote the foreword,  one Doug Phillips of Vision Forum. Vision Forum, that huge Evangelical Christian Quiverfull ministry devoted to making sure women were treated like inferior second class citizens in the kingdom of God, only fit to be walking uterii that could cook, work a vacuum cleaner and homeschool a huge passel of children birthed through quiverfull practices. No minds,no independent thought, no free agency, no freedoms. Only constant service to the Lord (her husband and/or father). … [Read more...]

Can We Please Stop it With the ‘Feminist’ Videos Already?

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons You’ve probably seen the video that the above image is pulled from– the Facebook-viral “Slap Her.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here. I don’t really want to take the time to dissect all the reasons why this video was actually kind of horrible, but if you’re interested, these two articles covered it rather well:Dr. Rebecca Hains’ ‘Slap Her': Fanpage.it video objectifies girls, exploits boys, and trivializes domestic violence R.L. Stollar’s ‘Slap Her': The So-Called Heartwarming Video that’s Actually Disturbing … [Read more...]

Parenting, The Duggars and Their Relationship With Mike Huckabee

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIn a past presidential election cycle TLC's '19 Kids and Counting' Duggar family supported former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee's campaign and it looks likely that they'll do the same in the upcoming 2016 elections. Huckabee has quit his Fox News television show in preparation for another run at the Oval Office and announced he is exploring election at the same time he's promoting his new book, "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy". … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Threats, Martyrbating and Hating the Feds

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church from his blog Steven L. Anderson.Editor's note: Checking on on Anderson this morning, the same pastor Anderson that called for the death of all gay people by Christmas to rid the country of AIDS, I found three different noteworthy things to share. Decided to put them in one long Quoting Quiverfull instead of individual ones. What makes all of this so note worthy is that it speaks to the Quiverfull Fundamentalist IFB mind set of 'Us Against THE WORLD!' Some martyrbating and some anger when treated like Evangelicals like to treat gay people. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Voddie Baucham Thinks Marriage is More Important Than Education?

by Voddie Baucham from his 'Child Training' sermon at Hardin Baptist Church bravely transcribed by R.L. Stollar from Homeschoolers AnonymousEditor's notes: Apparently Mr. Baucham does not consider parents behaving in a responsible way and modeling a good marriage in front of their children to be any sort of preparation for marriage. Which is sad, because no matter how much you lecture, hector or try to teach someone any concept sometimes the best way of all is to simply be an example. Where did this concept in Fundigelicalism that higher education for your child is wrong come from? … [Read more...]

NLQ Book Review: God’s Buried Children by Daniel Farcas

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOver a year ago a series of emails landed in my email box asking me to read, write a review, publish the review here and give this book five stars on Amazon. I do get review requests for NLQ on a regular basis, so this was just another of those. The topic sounded interesting, the memoirs of a man raised in the over burdened world of Romanian orphanages. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bill Gothard’s Teachings Are in Prisons?

by Jinger Duggar from the book 'Growing Up Duggar' pages 211 - 212Editor's note: The first time I read these passages I was struck by Jinger's judgmental description of the female inmates faces as having 'lines of grief and bitterness' but after rereading this some months later it feels much more outrageous that the teachings of Bill Gothard and the IBLP are being taught in a tax payer funded facility. Is this just a bunch of humble brag or is it the best thing they could do for the ladies in the jail? Thoughts, dear readers? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Childhood Vaccinations Are Government Backed Population Control?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of Faithful Word Baptist Church pastor Steven L. Anderson, from her blog Are They All Yours? - Vaccines and Population ControlEditor's note: In light of the recent exposure and infection of nine people and the possible infection of four others who visited Disneyland the same time-period as the measles-infected child  Zsuzsanna's views on routine childhood vaccinations for communicable diseases seems childishly ignorant and filled with government conspiracies too weird even for  Fox News. Herd immunity is a good thing, it would be counter-productive for the government to try and kill or sterilize the population via vaccinations as it would be killing off the ex … [Read more...]

The “Feminization” of the Church

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsIn recent years a lot of people have been talking about why in most Christian churches there is an approximately 60-40 ratio of women to men.  This 2006 Biola Magazine article puts it like this: There are generally more women than men in every type of church, in every part of the world. . .A traditional explanation is that women are more spiritual than men. But the leaders of [a new masculinity] movement suggest that the church’s music, messages and ministries cater to women. . . The result of this feminization is that many men, even Christian men, view churches as “ladies clubs” and don’t go — or they often go to please their … [Read more...]
