Quoting Quiverfull: French Caused Own Death?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church as quoted by Raw Story - Arizona pastor blames 'sinful' France and Death Metal for Paris terror attackEditor's note: I don't even know where to start with this one there's so much wrong, hateful, unChristian and blaming/shaming.... We've not posted about the Paris tragedy here at NLQ because while it's awful and a concern it's not really related to Quiverfull or Evangelicalism. But now that so many so-called 'Christians' have started pointing fingers, behaving badly and blaming the victims it's an issue for us. May the people of France and Lebanon be able to find their way to healing and wholeness in the aftermath and avoid guys like … [Read more...]

Josh Duggar Could Not Follow Rules?

The Inquistr has a fascinating article about that recent evening flight of the Duggar family plane through very hazardous weather from Rockford, Illinois to Springdale, Arkansas. This is the flight where people are alleging Josh Duggar was taken out of rehab and flown home. There are people at the Rockford airport that claim to have seen Josh among the others boarding that plane.The article raises a number of interesting questions I've been pondering myself. First, why didn't Jim Bob Duggar and assorted Duggars simply not check into the nearest Embassy Suites or other hotel to ride out the rough weather and fly out in the morning after the storm cells had passed? It's not like they … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feelings Are Invalid In Sexual Assault & Life?

by Doug Wilson from Blog & Mablog - Down a Grassy ExplanadeEditor's note: First he starts off in his blog going to the knee jerk reaction/control method of denigrating feelings and emotions that people experience, as if having emotions was a terrible and unGodly thing. Then he slides right into this little toxic bit of blaming and shaming sexual assault victims before saying that college students are a bunch of whiny wimps. How does this fit with the words of Christ? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Kevin Swanson Says Duggars Most Persecuted Family in America

by Kevin Swanson as quoted by Raw Story - Pastor who wants gay people executed says nobody more persecuted than the DuggarsEditor's note: Clearly Swanson hasn't looked at any comments on message boards about the Kardashian family or he'd see they might be just a tiny bit more hated by the American public that the Duggars. It's not persecution when they cancel your television show because your family is criminally dysfunctional enough to cover up sex crimes by a junior family member. Has he never read the scripture about reaping the thing you are sowing? Seems to me that the Duggars are reaping the harvest of their planting right now. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why the Outrage Over Small Things While Ignoring the Larger Issues?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.This week's Starbucks Red Cuptroversy has brought up today's question. We've seen it again and again in the world of Quiverfull/Fundamentalism/Evangelicalism, outrage and protests or flocking to support something minor while the big things Jesus commanded his followers to do get ignored. Anyone remember the Chik Fil A support day by Christians showing their appreciation for Chik Fil A supporting anti-homosexuality groups? How about the claims that Pokemon cards were demonic? How about when the movie 'Noah' came out? Scads of ridiculous things, some … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Pills Kill Babies?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Why Birth Control is WrongEditor's note: I don't know if I should laugh or be jaw-dropped over the fact that Anderson clearly has no real scientific idea how birth control pills actually work. They don't 'kill babies', the ones on the market now prevent the egg from ever leaving the ovary so that there cannot even be a fertilized egg must less a baby. The older pills prevented implantation of fertilized eggs. But an egg is not a baby, a long way from it. We've moved past that. Too bad his science knowledge has not. … [Read more...]
