Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’

First day of a new feature here at NLQ. After last week's posting of a series of Debi Pearl's thoughts on men and obsessions I was led to the official site for her book 'Preparing To Be A Help Meet' with it's message board with young ladies questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Here's what we're going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I'll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul's question in a way that is logical, rational and the best … [Read More...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet – Blog – Touching Before Marriage

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDue to a crazy-busy schedule, I've fallen off my pace of blogging Preparing to be a Help Meet because typing in the quotes from the book is surprisingly time-consuming. In lieu, I offer my most choice selections from the blog with the same name.What levels of hell have Mike and Debi wrought? Apparently they've moved beyond beating the shit out of children and started messing with an entire generation's sexual life.... … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Sexiest Thing You Can Say To Your Man?

by Doug Johnson from Life Site - The sexiest thing my wife ever said to me...definitely isn't what you think it isEditor's note: This guy has a warped sense of what sexy is. I don't know too many people that would define it the same way and definitely not many men outside of Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull. Jaw drop. He thinks the sexiest thing his wife said to him was that she'd changed her mind about birth control and wanted her IUD out immediately so they could have more children. There is much in the article that is cringe-inducing, but this might just bet the worst part.... … [Read More...]

People Who Matter

by Mari cross posted from her blog Mari's Muses “Be who you are and say what you mean. Because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” ~Dr. Seuss You find out (in a hurry!) who really matters and who really doesn’t when you decide it’s time to stop being what other people think you should be and start being you. Figuring out who matters and who doesn’t is so freeing. Yesterday, I had a conversation with a friend about realizing — just yesterday! — that I had been living for several months in a place where nobody cares. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Modern Women Do Not Love Home?

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Why Your Children Annoy You & Homemaking is BoringEditor's note: While we're just quoting the same small section that LAF is if you go to Kelly's blog and read what this dasterdly threat to home, hearth, children and commitment is you're going to laugh. Kelly is blaming The Internet for all the troubles at home. Yes, the same 'internet' that gave her a small measure of fame and provides money to her by the sales of her books and product. This is approaching Debi Pearl and Nancy Campbell level of 'do as I say, not as I do' shaming and blaming. Shame on her. The female cultural enforcers of Quiverfull a … [Read More...]

“Zimzum of Love” review: 49 – 95, “Dynamic” and “Exclusive”

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons One of the reasons why I was initially hesitant to write a review of a book I knew I’d essentially agree with was that I’d move through the book and think ho-hum, or well, duh, or this is just common sense why did we need a book about this. And then I’ll remember– oh, wait, there’s a zillion books out there that actively contradict what I think is “common sense,” so yes, we do need a book like this one. Desperately. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Kids Aren’t Expensive?

by Anna from House To Home and as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Kids Aren't Expensive But Greed IsEditor's note: LAF again are obsessed with people having too many things. While over the top materialism is just so off-putting, I can honestly say I know no one that wanted children who put off child-bearing for things. As to the other thing, that having kids isn't expensive, it isn't expensive in the world of Quiverfull because of home births, no childhood vaccinations or doctors visits, only buy used, school expenses, decent food and other things most of us consider essential to raising healthy, happy, well-adjusted, productive members of society. With LAF it's all or nothing, with … [Read More...]

News: Westboro Baptist Fails At Picketing Leonard Nimoy’s Funeral

From Jezebel - Westboro Baptist Wanted to Picket Nimoy's Funeral, But Couldn't Find ItEvery now and then we at NLQ get to see some righteous karma play out. The very fact that WBC could not find out where Nimoy's funeral was and stink up the joint with their disrespectful signs is some sort of divine justice.From Jezebel:It's not quite poetic justice, but we'll take it: the Westboro Baptist Church, a group of litigious trolls with the barest ties to Jesus, were unable to picket Leonard Nimoy's funeral because they don't know where it is. The WBC announced their plans to picket the funeral of the beloved actor earlier this week, as is their wont.This is what the family, … [Read More...]

Run, Rabbit, Run

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeEarlier this week I've had the opportunity to post in parts one of the most horrific pieces ever written by Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy Ministries and author of 'Created To Be A Help Meet' at NLQ. She has written about her early marriage to Michael Pearl and his 'obsession' (translation for normal folks 'hobby') of spending every winter Saturday hunting down those wascally wabbits. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Go To Bed Or Your Husband Might Sexually Stray?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The TrendEditor's note: Oh great! Another thing to be fearful about in the CPM/Quiverfull movement. Your poor man cannot be up in the bed sleeping without you there cooing over him. Claiming it brings your husband 'sexual temptation' if you're not up in the bed at the same time as him is really a big stretch. What, does he have his Ipad under the covers with the browsers open to free porn and match making sites? Any man weak enough to stray because he's up in the bed alone while you're answering emails or playing Candy Crush isn't worth having in the first place! … [Read More...]
