Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce For Christians Ever Because It Causes God’s Judgment?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Beautiful Attitude ContinuedEditor's note: Colin seems to think that every single thing that doesn't line up with his personal interpretation of the Bible is going to cause God to thrash and trash the earth and all it's inhabitants rather soon. Somehow I get the feeling that he really wants that final judgment to happen as soon as possible. There is so much in the world of Quiverfull theology that wants others judged and throws shade on anything or anyone not part of the select group. What a way to live! … [Read more...]

by Clint Echols - pastor First Baptist Church of Zeeland, Michigan - from Raw Story - Michigan Pastors: Being gay is an 'abomination' like being an 'axe murderer'Editor's note: why is it that the Evangelical and Fundamentalist Church cannot seem to understand that sexuality isn't necessarily a 'choice', like picking out a pair of pants or buying a particular type of yogurt.

Quoting Quiverfull: God Freed The Slaves?

quotingquiverfull

by Thomas S. Dunn from the Leesburg, Virginia City Council - Washington Post - Leesburg council member claims God - not government - ended slaveryEditor's note: This was from a public meeting about the formation of the Leesburg Diversity Commission and Mr. Dunn's misguided remarks were in response to those of the local NAACP rep. There's a great deal of slavery in the Bible, including instructions on how masters are to treat their slaves and how slaves are supposedly to behave. But Dunn ignores that to claim that God ended slavery in America. Leesburg has a huge evangelical quiverfull Christian community and is the home of Intercessors for America, Patrick Henry College and the offices … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - Why Watching People Make Out Should Be AwkwardEditor's note: One thing you can count on from the Quiverfull/CPM/Fundamentalist movement is that they will keep moving the bar, changing the rules, until everything except reading your Bible and praying is 'sinful' This piece basically says if you are not uncomfortable watching a movie scene of people deeply kissing, much less having sex, then there is something 'wrong' with you in your spiritual life. Yeah, keep moving that line and telling yourself you are hole-y, err, holy. It really is all about sex in that world. Seems like the author is coming very close to calling passionate kissing pornography. … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt

Notquoting

NLQ SASBN member Boze Herrington has written a review of the new Netflix show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt" for The Guardian newspaper. If you've not seen this new television show you might want to watch a few episodes. It's a comedy and yes, it is somewhat silly at times, but the draw for anyone in the former Quiverfull movement is that the show tackles the difficult issue of what it is like when you leave a cult and your entire frame of reference on life is what you learned within the cult. It manages to capture that perfect awkwardness in readjusting or adjusting for the first time to the outside world. … [Read more...]
