Happy Thanksgiving: Duties, Rights and Privileges

thanksgiving greetings

by Calulu cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeThe quotes and theology I stumble across as part of my posting and moderator duties at No Longer Quivering sometimes make me laugh, but many times I'm more likely to drop my full coffee cup in shock or dismay, just like the graphic of a spilled coffee cup I use for the Quoting Quiverfull feature. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Don’t Belong in the Military at All?

combat

A Design FlawI was conversing over on NLQ with a woman about the issue of women in the military, and whether or not they should be in combat. Since it is my view that women shouldn’t be in the military at all, I don’t really have a dog in that hunt. I was primarily there to correct a false impression that some seemed to have, namely that Ladies Against Feminism, and people like myself, were Ok with women in the military, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Icky Patriarchy?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog and Mablog - Patriarchy, Vision Forum, and All the Rest of it.But the Word Patriarchy Makes Me Feel Icky The word patriarchy has more than a narrow denotation. There are also connotations, which must be taken into account as well. It does no good to use a word, and then, when everybody in the world misunderstands me, to plead the dictionary. Some of these connotations are honestly come by and some of them are not. … [Read more...]

Judithann Campbell is not Quiverfull or part of the Fundamentalist Evangelical crowd represented by people like the Botkins. Ladies Against Feminism used her writing without giving her credit or even looking to see if the rest of the article conforms with their beliefs. Perfect example of LAF cherry picking to support their issues. … [Read more...]

Christian Cliches: “Lean Not on Your Own Understanding”

lean

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsWhen I was part of Maranatha Campus Ministries back in the 1980s, "Lean not on your own understanding" was a cliche they were particularly fond of.  I remember when they were teaching us that Genesis 1:28, where God told the first male and female to "have dominion. . . over every living thing that moves on the earth," was a divine mandate meaning that today Christians are to "have dominion" in society and government, to "take over" for Jesus and make Christian principles and morality the "law of the land."  I remember shaking my head in puzzlement.  That passage doesn't say anything about human beings ruling over other hum … [Read more...]

Quotes1-300x250

by Susan Dench of Ladies Against Feminism, SusanDench.com and Bangor Daily NewsMs Dench might or might not be Quiverfull but the fact that Ladies Against Feminism are quoting her makes it likely she is connected to some evangelical patriarchal religion.In the traditional world, women brought out the best in their men, who subsumed their more base instincts as they fought hard to earn and win the respect of the women they loved.Before the sexual revolution, the woman was put on a pedestal, and both sexes expected the man to court her, woo her, fight for her hand, solicit her hard-won affection. Oh, of course there was premarital sex, but it wasn’t as prevalent, and if a girl got p … [Read more...]
