Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 8 How Do I Need Thee? (Let’s Play A Stereotype Game!)

Createdtoneed

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 48-50Alrighty. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm really excited for this post, because Michael lets us play a game! I'm calling it the Sexist Stereotype Game, because it shows how sexist we really are. Let's jump right in, shall we? Text is in purple.I Need Her Sensitivity I need her companionship, mercy, and grace. The nature of man is found in the husband and wife's combination. God Adam "Male and female", It is as if one body and soul couldn't contain and express the fullness of God, so the Creator divided his attributes, grouping similar traits, putting them into two genders. If we were to make a long list of human … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Is A Counterfeit Mothering?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Brass Instead of GoldEditor's note: Nancy does the blaming shaming guilting thing she's so good at it leading to her stating that using daycare (and the unspoken shame of working a job) isn't embracing our Biblical roles as mothers. She doesn't answer why she didn't embrace her motherhood role when she adopted those children from Africa. I guess her words only work if you're a white Evangelical Christian women having your own children. … [Read more...]

Behind Compound Walls: Dueling Duggar Stories – Is Josh Duggar ‘Suicidal’?

Image by NLQ

Everything single morning I can count on a couple of things once I get out of bed. 1) The cats will demand food, 2) I will need copious amounts of coffee and 3) there will be a pile of articles involving the Duggar family landing in my email box. Personally I prefer the cats and coffee. One reason why is became many times the stories of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stories are either generated by their PR firm or they all just contradict the hell out each other. … [Read more...]

It’s Not Just The Duggars

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To LiveThis post has been a long time coming, and with the Duggar scandal all over the news, its been on my mind again. First off, let me say that what Josh Duggar did was wrong, and how the media has handled this story has been pretty awful too. Tabloids have been flippant about sharing police documents with the victims names on them, and since the Duggar family has been very vocally against LGBTQ people who they claim are child-molesters, there are a lot of people eager to point out the hypocrisy of covering up the deeds of a child molester in their midst. I think there is plenty out there on what happened, and how it was “handled”, I wan … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Discipline, Discipline, Discipline But Keep Your Daughters Unmarried?

quotingquiverfull

by former Vision Forum friend Geoffrey Botkin hawking his newest CD/DVD/book on raising children on Ladies Against Feminism - How To Practice Biblical Discipline.Editor's note: The ladies of Ladies Against Feminism didn't even bother to try and write a review or put into their own words why they endorse this particular item by Botkin. They copied and pasted this right from his website. Odd that there's been no updates for over seven months at his single very adult daughters website Visionary Daughters, no online web tutorials about gilding your outside or what to do when there's no real role for you any longer. Most curious how silent they've been. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Quiverfulls So Tightly Control Who Their Children Marry?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.During a recent sweep through the websites which seek to further the Quiverfull agenda I landed on the Botkin sisters page -- Visionary Daughters. There have been fewer and fewer updates there in the last few years as the girls get older and are still unmarried. The only daughters in this family of Quiverfull enforcers are still unmarried at thirty and thirty two years old. Surprising after all the years of propaganda about preparing for marriage at their page. Yet there are no marriages or suitors coming for them that anyone can see. If the aim of … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Now Michael seems to think that fun, joy and laughter are some sort of bizarre tools of the devil instead of normal human experiences. "True" joy is allowed, but he doesn't explain what makes "true" joy so different than regular joy. Same song, different day.This long series is from 2005 and we're still on only the first point. Will be posting all of the five different articles he wrote on 'Jumping Ship' but will take a several days break between each article. Too much Michael Pearl at the same time can be toxic to your appetite and incompatible with joy. … [Read more...]

Is Spiritual Abuse Biblical?

CindyKunsman

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceEssentially, the most vivid examples of spiritual abuse come from Ezekiel 34 and Zechariah 11, with the consummate example of spiritual abuse embodied in the Pharisees and Sadducees. Though I’ve listed the references for these Scriptures below, I have also displayed the full texts on the Under Much Grace website, and you can LINK HERE to read them (and as of April 2012, they are also noted below).There are also two excellent articles that discuss whether or not spiritual abuse is actually found within Scripture itself. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

Quoting

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Gasp! Michael just admitted that even atheists can live a "good life"! But then he goes right back into his toxic blaming shaming speech of referring to public school children as "Sodomites," cancelling out anything good he might say about anyone without his worldview. Followed by some ridiculous twaddle about 'natural life' and 'Jesus life'. Ugh. … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Does God Have One Perfect Person Just For Me?

Answering

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: Part 3 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Simple Michael: He's telling parents not to be hypocrites, to practice what they preach on a daily basis, which is, after all, pretty good advice for any parent. There is nothing that will turn a teenager against his or her parents more than someone that says one thing and does completely contradictory actions to what they've said. But this first paragraph about kids who don't know anything about sex going on to commit incest reminds me of a certain exposed scandal in the world of Quiverfull. Is this what happened? Michael seems to know too much about this, which makes me wonder if it happened in his family too. Didn't Jim … [Read more...]
