Quoting Quiverfull: Not Allowing Christians to Discriminate Against Others is ‘Christian Persecution’?

by Josh Duggar of the Family Research Council at last Saturday's rally in Washington D.C. From Raw Story -  Josh Duggar: Christians who aren't allowed to discriminate against gays are victims of discriminationEditor's note: It's pretty obvious that Josh doesn't understand that not being allowed to discriminate against others is not Christian persecution. It seems that Josh is not liking being discriminated against as much as he enjoys discriminating against others. It is some damn fine martyrbating he's doing. You can watch the entire interview at CNS News. … [Read more...]

Family Life Today: Poised to Take Over the Vacancy Left by Vision Forum Ministries

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen the news of the unwanted sexual encounters between Vision Forum's Doug Phillips and Lordes Torres came out followed by the closing of both Vision Forum Ministries and their for profit Vision Forum Inc it left quite a void in the world of Christian Dominionism, Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements. Everyone speculated who would take over from the powerhouse dominionist ministry of Vision Forum. But those that might have stepped in to fill the void left by the closing of Vision Forum had their own scandals to deal with: first Bill Gothard of IBLP/ATI, who is huge in the world of homeschooling and dominionism, was accused of groping teenagers working at ATI … [Read more...]

Pastor Bob Gray Sr. Pines for the 1950s

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLast year, Bob Gray Sr., retired pastor of Longview Baptist Temple in Longview, Texas, took to his blog pulpit to whine and complain about church women no longer obeying Deuteronomy 22:5: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. That’s right, Brother Bob is upset about Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church women wearing pants. Of all the things a pastor could or should be worried about, Gray is concerned about women wearing what he perceives to be men’s clothing. Gray write … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So God Visits Women Also During Rape and Incest?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Would You Like God to Visit You?Editor's note: Clearly Nancy is only referring to conception of a baby during marriage. But what about all the women who get pregnant from forced sex, date rape, violent sexual assaults or from being sexually abused by a family member? Where is God when those types of conceptions are happening. Following her reasoning either God isn't involved directly in conception or He is all about forced sex as well as marital sanctioned sex. Which is it? … [Read more...]

“How To Win Over Depression” – review 1 – 27

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Before I get to what Tim had to say in the first two chapters, I want to begin by making sure we’re all on the same page, especially since Tim is going to confuse this issue in very serious ways. First, there are different kinds of depression. There’s major or clinical depression (which can also be chronic,) mild depression, seasonal affective disorder, and the depression that is a part if bipolar disorder (as well as others). Tim doesn’t distinguish between any of these, and his reasoning for why he mixes all of these up will become clear once we’re further into the book. However, the book focuses on helping people who have … [Read more...]

News – Calvary Temple Church Spiritual Warfare

 Was asked to post this to get the word out about Calvary Chapel in Sterling, Virginia. This isn't too far from where I live and my poisonous old church had a few of the walk aways from Calvary Temple.

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is the New ‘Goliath’?

by Bethany Baird of Girl Defined - Feminism is Laughing at Our GodEditor's note: Have you ever noticed it is always the most harshly repressed women that do not want any women to have free agency or basic rights? This is a good example of that strange lack of self awareness in the more repressive forms of Quiverfull Christianity. Which is especially strange considering Jesus treated women as equals in the New Testament. How can they claim to be 'following Christ' when they are clearly in direct opposition to his actions? … [Read more...]

My Heart Breaks for Micah … and Bethany

by Boze Herrington cross posted from his blog Sketches by BozeOne afternoon in the fall of 2007 I walked over and sat down across from Bethany in the Southwestern Commons. I had a dazed look on my face.“Were you just talking to Micah Moore?” she asked me.I nodded. “How do you know Micah?”“He’s in my Reel Jews class.
