Part 2 – RU: Labor Exploitation For Jesus

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Michael Pearl Answers Parenting Questions

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SINFUL SensitivityEditor's note: What? She still thinks it might be okay to let someone that molested his daughters have sleepovers with her daughters? While Michael is absolutely correct in saying that sleepovers at a former child molester's home are a bad idea he then takes it to a very scary place by saying that the man needs to be castrated. Studies have shown that castrating sex offenders does not do any good in the long run. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Willfully Misunderstanding What Freedom of Religion Is?

by the Patrick Johnson family - Johnson Family Ministry Blog - What's the Problem with Kentucky Governor Accommodating Kim Davis' Religious Beliefs?Editor's note: The very fact that Patrick Johnson has his nine year old son photobombing gay couples with a hateful sign says a lot about him beyond his misunderstanding of US constitutional law. He's claiming like so many others that the Freedom of Religion laws should be only to promote Christianity. This belief is particularly disgusting in light of the fact that Thanksgiving is in a few short days. Remember the Pilgrims? They left England in order to be able to practice what they believe without interference, not force their beliefs on … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: French Caused Own Death?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church as quoted by Raw Story - Arizona pastor blames 'sinful' France and Death Metal for Paris terror attackEditor's note: I don't even know where to start with this one there's so much wrong, hateful, unChristian and blaming/shaming.... We've not posted about the Paris tragedy here at NLQ because while it's awful and a concern it's not really related to Quiverfull or Evangelicalism. But now that so many so-called 'Christians' have started pointing fingers, behaving badly and blaming the victims it's an issue for us. May the people of France and Lebanon be able to find their way to healing and wholeness in the aftermath and avoid guys like … [Read more...]

Josh Duggar Could Not Follow Rules?

The Inquistr has a fascinating article about that recent evening flight of the Duggar family plane through very hazardous weather from Rockford, Illinois to Springdale, Arkansas. This is the flight where people are alleging Josh Duggar was taken out of rehab and flown home. There are people at the Rockford airport that claim to have seen Josh among the others boarding that plane.The article raises a number of interesting questions I've been pondering myself. First, why didn't Jim Bob Duggar and assorted Duggars simply not check into the nearest Embassy Suites or other hotel to ride out the rough weather and fly out in the morning after the storm cells had passed? It's not like they … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feelings Are Invalid In Sexual Assault & Life?

by Doug Wilson from Blog & Mablog - Down a Grassy ExplanadeEditor's note: First he starts off in his blog going to the knee jerk reaction/control method of denigrating feelings and emotions that people experience, as if having emotions was a terrible and unGodly thing. Then he slides right into this little toxic bit of blaming and shaming sexual assault victims before saying that college students are a bunch of whiny wimps. How does this fit with the words of Christ? … [Read more...]
