Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Marriage is the Best Context For Human Development?

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - Marriage is God's Finishing SchoolEditor's note: While I think it's a given that marriage does force you to mature and develop in ways you might not have as a single person it's unlikely that Michael Pearl and most everyone else have ideas even in the same wheelhouse about marriage. Does anyone really go into their marriage thinking that they will completely change everything about their spouse? Your thoughts? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homosexual Agenda to End Marriage by Gaining the Right to Marry?

quotingquiverfull

by Micah Clark from Illinois Family Institute as quoting by Ladies Against Feminism - Homosexual Battle Plans Revealed: Destroy MarriageEditor's note: It's amazing how LAF takes statements completely out of context and creates something quite different than what the quoted person actually said. They have turned things around to always push their own agenda of no rights for women. Is not that a form of lying, which is forbidden by the Ten Commandments? The original source for the quotation is an ABC radio program from Australia. Context is important. … [Read more...]

Part 1 – Is It Possible To Be A Sex-Positive Christian?

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons If you’ve spent any time in feminist circles, you’ve probably bumped into the termsex-positive. It gets thrown around a bit, and one thing I’ve noticed is that it can occasionally be difficult to nail down what the writer/speaker means when they use it, so I’m going to offer a definition for what I mean when I use it. … [Read more...]

A Film That Helps Us Understand Why Pearl Becomes Appealing: How do parents get caught up in extreme practices?

Image from Cindy Kunsman - Under Much Grace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceA few years ago, I attended a professional conference that dealt with addiction which featured John Bradshaw as one of the speakers. I didn't like his old PBS series on codependency and families, but in recent years, I've found his lectures and books enlightening. He points out well, much like Alice Miller does, that corporal punishment in particular destroys critical thinking and makes a person ripe for manipulation. In a talk, much of which referred back to his own history of abuse, he ended up mentioningFocus on the Family and Richard Fugate as examples of ideologues who recommend abusive practices in their books. I approa … [Read more...]

March For Life Day & The Duggar’s Growing Political Activism: This Is Why They Are Dangerous For Our Country

Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerNo March For Life Day would be complete without TLC's Duggar family making an appearance. I don't know if they are in Washington D.C. today marching on the National Mall, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit. But they attended and participated in a big way with a March For Life event on Saturday in Little Rock, Arkansas. They blogged about it on their website and produced a video as well. … [Read more...]

Dear Unmarried Woman: Are You An Appetizer or Dessert?

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserJust when I think I’ve heard all there is to hear from Evangelicals about sex, purity, and the like, someone will write or say something that I have not heard before. In other words, not all the nuts have fallen from the tree.Recently, Bethany Jett, a thirty-something married Evangelical woman who writes on girly topics from a godly perspective, wrote a blog article about two reasons why a woman should save herself for marriage. Here’s what Jett had to say: … [Read more...]

Foreword – ‘Be Fruitful & Multiply’ Review

befruitful

NLQ Book Review of Nancy Campbell's "Be Fruitful & Multiply" by Suzanne TitkemeyerOriginally I was not going to do a chapter of my review on the foreword. But then I took a look at who actually wrote the foreword,  one Doug Phillips of Vision Forum. Vision Forum, that huge Evangelical Christian Quiverfull ministry devoted to making sure women were treated like inferior second class citizens in the kingdom of God, only fit to be walking uterii that could cook, work a vacuum cleaner and homeschool a huge passel of children birthed through quiverfull practices. No minds,no independent thought, no free agency, no freedoms. Only constant service to the Lord (her husband and/or father). … [Read more...]

Can We Please Stop it With the ‘Feminist’ Videos Already?

Screen cap from the video "Slap Her" from Defeating The Dragons site.

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons You’ve probably seen the video that the above image is pulled from– the Facebook-viral “Slap Her.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here. I don’t really want to take the time to dissect all the reasons why this video was actually kind of horrible, but if you’re interested, these two articles covered it rather well:Dr. Rebecca Hains’ ‘Slap Her': Fanpage.it video objectifies girls, exploits boys, and trivializes domestic violence R.L. Stollar’s ‘Slap Her': The So-Called Heartwarming Video that’s Actually Disturbing … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIn a past presidential election cycle TLC's '19 Kids and Counting' Duggar family supported former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee's campaign and it looks likely that they'll do the same in the upcoming 2016 elections. Huckabee has quit his Fox News television show in preparation for another run at the Oval Office and announced he is exploring election at the same time he's promoting his new book, "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy". … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Threats, Martyrbating and Hating the Feds

NLQ original image

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church from his blog Steven L. Anderson.Editor's note: Checking on on Anderson this morning, the same pastor Anderson that called for the death of all gay people by Christmas to rid the country of AIDS, I found three different noteworthy things to share. Decided to put them in one long Quoting Quiverfull instead of individual ones. What makes all of this so note worthy is that it speaks to the Quiverfull Fundamentalist IFB mind set of 'Us Against THE WORLD!' Some martyrbating and some anger when treated like Evangelicals like to treat gay people. … [Read more...]
