Quoting Quiverfull: Indoctrinating Your Children Jack Hyles Style?

quotingquiverfull

by Jack Hyles of Hyles-Anderson College and First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana from his book "How To Rear Infants"Editor's note: This was posted on Bruce Gerencser's blog and it reveals the way that children (and everyone else) are pressured to worship the preacher in Independent Fundamentalist Baptist churches. That theology has not worked out well, has it, if you go by the examples of Hyles, Jack Schaap and countless other IFB preachers who've ended their careers in scandals born from their absolute control over others. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Ladies Against Feminism Losing It Over ’50 Shades of Grey’

quotingquiverfull

from Ladies Against Feminism and the seven quoted articles they tagged about sex, perversion and the movie '50 Shades of Grey'. Editor's note: Wow, seven articles about sexuality, pornography and what LAF considers perversion in just a couple of days? Sounds like someone has some sexuality issues they're working out. They don't even put up this many articles at once about abortion near Right To Life Sunday. For years at NLQ we've theorized that large parts of the patriarchy is obsessed with sex, as much sex as they can get, like the Pearl's honeymoon tale or Vaughn Ohlman's insistence you get married young to keep from committing sexual sin, but we've never examined the female psyche in … [Read more...]

NLQ original image

From The Christian Science Monitor - Alecia Pennington can't prove she's an American - or that she even exists. What would you do?Editor's note: Be sure and read the entire article. Thankfully this terrible story is being picked up by the world's mainstream press as I've seen articles on Alecia Pennington's situation from press as far away as Australia. The total power many over-controlling homeschooling parents hold and exercise over their adult children is demeaning and disgraceful. It should be illegal to withhold identification documentation from an adult child. It is extremely abusive - Identification Abuse.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Misunderstanding ‘Patriarchy’?

quotingquiverfull

by Gabriel Hudelson of Thine is The Kingdom - Godzilla on PatriarchyEditor's note: This author is speaking on the HSLDA article published in August titled 'A Line in the Sand' and refuting some of it line by line. HSLDA wrote distancing itself from Doug Phillips, Bill Gothard and their definition of Patriarchy in an attempt to pretend to be different than Gothard and Phillips among other things. Is HSLDA being disingenuous or are they making real theological changes in how they view gender roles and submission of women? … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Science Denial Has Real Consequences

Image NLQ original

by Adam Frank from NPR - Science Denialism Has ConsequencesEditor's note: In light of the recent measles outbreak due in no small part to people taking religious exemptions on childhood vaccinations (like Zsuzsanna Anderson and Debi Pearl among others) and even HSLDA's refusal to take sides in a public safety issue I think we should revisit the issue of  refusing to vaccinate your children for religious reasons. NPR has posted an excellent article on how denying proven science does have real life consequences for everyone. Since Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity seems to be the biggest practitioners of Science Denialism we're starting to see the consequences. Your thoughts? … [Read more...]
