Dignity, Decisions and Liberty of Conscience

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch The Shepherd As I write on this Watch the Shepherd blog about the abuse of authority and advocating for the vulnerable, I often think of another underlying theme: liberty of faith and conscience. This applies to churches, marriages, parenting, education choices, and so much more. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homosexual Juggernaut and Christian Bestiality?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - The Church's Witness on Sexuality: Too Cute by HalfEditor's note: Second half of the word salad that is merely a revealing of what Tim Bayly fears the most - not being thought of as masculine, combined with fear and hatred of gays. Why is it that these guys always extrapolate acceptance of homosexuality with martyrbating over a coming wave of bestiality practitioners? … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Heterosexual Marriage Being Mocked?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - The Church's Witness on Sexuality: Too Cute by HalfEditor's note: I had to read this word salad about ten times along with the unquoted bits to try and figure out Bayly's point. It seems to be 1 - people making fun of his word salad are going to hell, even if his own writings seem to indicate that he has issues with his own masculinity, 2 - married hetero sex between his flavor of Christians is the only righteous sex, 3 - the church needs to demean anyone not lining up with his personal thoughts on sexuality. … [Read More...]

The Power of the Transformed Wife – Lori Really Really Hates Porn

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWe start today's review of Lori Alexander's book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife' in Chapter 11 - The Dating Scene and Sexual Purity. Rereading this again last night I have to say that this is both one of the dullest chapters in the book and the most disjointed poorly written. Lori keeps circling back to porn. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Leaving Workforce Not Missed?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Nation's Greatest NeedEditor's note: For several weeks now Nancy has been on an pretty significant anti-feminist tear, claiming wombs dry up when you work outside the home, claiming that feminists throw away 'God's glory' when they use birth control and on and on ad naseum. How presumptuous of her to assume if all women gave up their jobs no one would miss them! She is living in a bubble of privilege and does not even realize it. It's not on a whim that most women work, it is out of sheer financial necessity for most. … [Read More...]

This is a series we run every Thursday. The questions are things that people who may not know much about the Quiverfull movement or even Fundamentalist or Evangelical Christianity ask about the lifestyle. Examining some of the questions involving Quiverfull theology and life can only shine a light on the toxic nature of this lifestyle choice. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists Degrade Men’s Beastly Nature?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Feminists Are Weak WomenEditor's note: The italicized portions are quotes from an article by Dennis Prager in The National Review. Nice assuming by Lori and Prager than men cannot control their sex drives, rendering them somehow less than fully human and more like suffering a disability. According to Lori being cognizant over the sexual weaknesses of the men she encounters makes her a strong woman. No, actually that makes her an enabler of bad behavior and dis-respecter of men. That's weakness, not being able to see the real state and treat someone as human and equal, having to constantly molly-coddle them. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Only Men Are Being Emotionally Abused?

by Trey (Lori Alexander's nasty little fan boy) from Lori Alexander's The Transformed Wife - Women Withholding Sex From Their Husbands Editor's note: This guy is the type that thinks all women 'owe' him something and complain that they are not receiving the adulation, respect, or fawning from every young woman in their path. So he's unloading on all the women in Lori's group on all the things wrong with women in his view. His claims that it is only the men being physically and emotionally abused is laughable and sick. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Withholding Sex is Wickedly Evil?

by Trey (self-described Good Christian Patriarch tm) on Lori Alexander's blog The Transformed Wife - Women Withholding Sex From Their HusbandsEditor's note: A little birdie told me of a posting by Lori about a house on her street catching fire and her response being to grab her lotion and her makeup bag as the main things to taken when fleeing the house. I spent some time yesterday digging through the archives on her sites and was unable to find anything about a house fire that her son-in-law had to rescue her from with her lotions and makeup. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Children Born With Demonic Need For Pleasure?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Self ControlEditor's note: 'Pleasure junkie'? 'Hippie'? It sounds like someone is projecting awful hard here onto an innocent kid that is expressing frustration in one of the few way open to a small child.  That last little slap at teenagers that like to hang out at the mall is ridiculous, many kids go through that phase and aren't 'addicts' like Michael is claiming, moving on to live productive good lives. So much so wrong in this small bit. … [Read More...]
