Ferguson – Michael Brown Shooting: Open Thread – Helpful & Unhelpful Christian Responses

ferg

If you're like many Americans you've spent the past few days watching the ongoing riots in Ferguson, Missouri in response to the Grand Jury clearing police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown. In this day and age it looks like racism against blacks is alive and well in many places, this is just a symptom of that sad reality.While this has been ongoing I've been curious to see how the world Evangelical Christianity responds. No word from the usual people that say hateful things in the wake of national tragedies, e.i Pat Robertson and the Kevin Swanson archetypes. The ones that are responding fall into two categoriesJust pray -Prayer Guides Racism … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Leave Ma Duggar Alone!

peoplemag

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFound this on NLQ founder Vyckie Garrison's Facebook feed this morning. Chicago Now blogger Sue Fitzpatrick has just published one of the most head-in-the-sand defending TLC's show "19 Kids & Counting" and the Duggar family articles ever published outside of the world of Quiverfull Christianity. For some reason this article is published under the "Unemployment Stories" section of Chicago Now, which is a little odd. I think we can all guess what the author is doing while unemployed, watching those all day all night marathons of "19 Kids & Counting". … [Read more...]

Revisiting Steadfast Daughters in a Quivering World Part 5 – Confessions of a Quiverfull Hero

quivering-daughters

[Note: this series is dedicated to Quivering Daughters by the former-Quiverfull moms at No Longer Quivering.]by Daisy I was only 19 when I arrived at Christianity’s door, bruised and highly impressionable and, because of my family situation, determined to do a better job of sorting out my life than my parents had done. Victims of abuse in their own homes, my parents had learned very early to dissociate from their emotions. Our home was an emotionally sterile one and, although I know now that this is not true, as as child I believed my parents did not love me. I decided that when *I* had kids, if they grew up knowing nothing else, they would know for sure that I loved them more than bre … [Read more...]

prenuptial-agreements-620x412

Ladies Against Feminism has republished a piece from the Mercador by Nicole King called Marriage linked to income increase. If I'm reading this right it sounds like LAF and the original author are saying that a) get married to the first living breathing man with prospects or education to avoid poverty and b) dooming non-white women to poverty by the statistics used by the Pew Research Center and the New York Times. Classy, LAF, so so classy.. … [Read more...]

When Church Hurts: Part 5

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsFor a few years, I had the privilege of serving in my church in several ways. I took classes, my husband and I took care of a significant portion of the landscape (which had been sorely neglected) – creating sacred spaces for people to find quiet time with the Lord, and I assisted with preparing food for Sunday morning fellowship. I also had the opportunity to teach classes over our final year there. … [Read more...]
