News: Arkansas Christian Politician Rehomes Adopted Daughter With Sexual Predator

by David Badash at The New Civil Rights Movement - Lawmaker and Christian School Owner 'Rehomes' Adopted 6 Year Old To Man Who Then Rapes Her In light of all the discussion here on Quiverfull Rescue Adopters we need to ask ourselves: what should people do when an adoption does not work out like it was planned? Do the adoptive parents have a responsibility to 'keep' the child and seek help from the mental health professional community or should they discard the child like a broken toy? … [Read More...]

Final Installment of My Story: A Heart Like Mine

by Nora Woodhouse cross posted from her blog A Heart Like MineClosing the gate behind; leaving the suds in the bucket and the clothes hanging on the line. I thought that I would be writing the final installment of My Story; A Heart Like Mine from the singular perspective of leaving home many years ago. But I realized that in many ways I am only now finally leaving home and closing the gate behind me. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Cuts Crime Rates?

From Ladies Against Feminism - The Effects of Marriage Versus Co-Habitation on CrimeEditor's note: Believe this piece originated from Mercator.net but the editor at LAF screwed up the links while posting. So I'm unable to determine exactly what surveys or representative sampling the original author used to justify the statement that marriage means reduced crime rates. This talks about how Florida is about to decriminalize cohabitation and doesn't do anything to support the idea that marriage cuts crime rates. … [Read More...]

The Perfection Lie

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live Hello. My name is Young Mom, and I am a recovering Perfectionist. I used to be in denial that I am a perfectionist. Perfectionist’s were the type of people that annoyed me, they were the ones with the immaculate houses, well behaved children and clean nice-smelling cars. My house was never clean enough, my children still disobeyed despite my best efforts, my car was a disaster. Nope, I couldn’t be a perfectionist, otherwise I would have everything under control. But being a perfectionist doesn’t mean that you have an immaculate house, it means that you feel that you are supposed to have an immaculate house, so you freak out whenever … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Quiverfull Making Martyrs Out Of Mothers?

by Steven Ertelt from Life News - No  Greater Love: Putting the life of her unborn baby first; mother dies after giving birthEditor's note: Life News uses the death of a woman who from all accounts wasn't Quiverfull to make a point about how good Christian mothers are supposed to carry pregnancies that will end their lives to the end, no matter what the doctors advise. They are canonizing the dead women Suzanne Mazzola as an example to be looked up to instead of a woman who took a risk and paid the price. It was her decision and her's alone to make, but typically Life News ignores that. If they had their way that decision would be made in advance for all women. … [Read More...]

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...]
