“Lies Women Believe” Review: 63 – 90

by Samantha Field cross posted from  her blog Samantha P Field.comFair warning: today’s post is a little long. Because of that, I’ve decided to break today’s review up into the same sections that Nancy divides this chapter– “Lies Women Believe About Themselves”. Eve’s Diary These diary entries are supposed to reflect in some way the similarities between this fictional Eve and modern women, especially concerning the “lies we believe,” so I wondered if Nancy was ever going to address one particular statement Eve makes in this entry: I don’t know if [Adam will] ever trust me again. In a way, I can’t blame him. I’ve really wrecked his life. I feel so stupid. Adam just doesn’t understand … [Read More...]


Quoting Quiverfull: Live Like Martyrs To Win Your Children Over To Christ?

by Susan Zakula from Susan's Corner and as the author of those 'interesting' book reviews - Child Rearing---Surprisingly SimpleEditor's note: In an earlier unquoted paragraph she throws shade at Michael Pearl, Gary Ezzo et al. More good Christian Cannibalism going on. They don't have to be persecuted and defamed by non-believers when they do it so well among themselves. So what she's basically saying in this entire article is that you have to be an anti-social weirdo that is ready to be burned at the stake for Jesus in order to raise your children correctly.  It takes a bit more than that. … [Read More...]

Christian Cannabalism and Josh Duggar’s Sins: Michael Pearl Vs. Zsuzsanna Anderson

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIn this month's release of No Greater Joy's magazine there was an article by Michael Pearl supporting the Duggar family over Josh molesting his sisters. Here's what Michael Pearl said in support of the family while claiming that Christians are cannibalizing each other. Apparently we're all supposed to shut up about anything done wrong in the church according to Mikey: … [Read More...]


Quoting Quiverfull: Women Aren’t Educated Today Because of ‘Mental Laziness’?

by Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin of Visionary Daughters - The History of Womanhood That Feminists Don't Want You to KnowEditor's note: This is the last bit I'll be quoting from this poisonously stupid article. Women aren't educated today because of 'mental laziness'? I dare those young ladies to come to the college language classes I'm taking and tell the young women there that they are mentally lazy. Plus the class ratios seem to be five females for every male in those classes. From every ridiculous statement made by the Botkin sisters in their article I'd have to say that mental laziness seems to be more of a problem in their society rather than in society at large. Emphasis in the … [Read More...]

Spoiler Warning for "Gone Girl" … [Read More...]


Quoting Quiverfull: Biblical Women’s Rights?

by Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin from Visionary Daughters - The History of Womanhood That Feminists Don't Want You to KnowEditor's note: This piece is like a trainwreck that just keeps on sliding and exploding with wrong history and bad ideas. Now they claim that perfect protection and honoring of women occurred in the Bible and in Christian societies, contrary to what most historians say before landing on the if it's not working like that you're doing your Christianity wrong knee jerk response. … [Read More...]


Where in the World is Josh Duggar Part 2?

Earlier in the week we posted here at NLQ speculation that perhaps Josh Duggar was not at a rehab named Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois because no one had seen him at any of the meetings or church services.There's nothing new to report on that story. But during the research I did for a Vyckie Garrison article that was published at Raw Story (check out the comments because they are pure comedy gold!) something odd appeared. On the FAA flight logs of both Duggar airplanes there were flights landing late at night, like eleven pm or so, and leaving the cities visited in the wee hours of the morn, like two or three am. … [Read More...]

Misunderstanding and Punishing the Character of Children as a Root of Victimization

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace Originally published January 2012. This is part of a series on Understanding How Emotional Development in Childhood Affects Adults: Fostering Spiritual Abuse via the "Roots of Victimization" A few days ago, I pointed out that the girls who survived incarceration at Hephzibah House (HH) suffered both trauma/torture and spiritual abuse, and upon leaving, they struggle with unique problems including trauma reenactment, revictimization, and an inability to self-protect. Though some of this relates directly to the debilitation of the self created by the harsh conditions at HH, the roots of these related deficits are created in … [Read More...]


Quoting Quiverfull: Women Praised By Men Before Feminism?

by Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin from Visionary Daughters - The History of Womanhood That Feminists Don't Want You to KnowEditor's note: What history books have these two been studying because nowhere in any of the history I've read has it said that Susan B. Anthony bestowed any rights upon her fellow women citizens. Ridiculous revisionist history in the fundigelical world. And the Bible gave women property and divorce rights first? Even sillier. This train of thought is appalling, uneducated and misguided. … [Read More...]


Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Stay and Help Mama, or Go and Help Others?

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask 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. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. 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 possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read More...]


Quoting Quiverfull: Modern Women Selfish and Weak?

by Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin from Visionary Daughters - The History of Womanhood That Feminist's Don't Want You To KnowEditor's note: That's some quality blaming and shaming going on in the piece below. They really have an axe to grind in this article with Nancy Pelosi and the Affordable Care Art. At least they aren't babbling on and on about clothing and makeup to honor God I suppose. … [Read More...]


Quoting Quiverfull: Representing Your King?

by Elizabeth Botkin from Visionary Daughters - What Every Christian Girl Can Learn From KateEditor's note: Almost two years of radio silence from the Botkin sisters, save for the occasional paid online seminar. Neither of them married in that time frame and no one really knows why they suddenly went quiet instead of continually flogging their restrictive lifestyle. But in this piece Elizabeth says that Kate Middleton, wife of the future king of England Prince William, represents the crown in how she dresses, that she doesn't dress or style for her own tastes but to bring glory to the British royal house. I doubt that she picks everything she wears with no amount of her own personal taste … [Read More...]
