Quoting Quiverfull: Fighting is Godly and Biblical?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - The Good Father: Fight the Good Fight (2)Editor's note: If you think this little bit is awful be thankful I skipped all the Catholic-bashing and lying he was doing in the unquoted part of this post. He's really quite nasty and blaming. He's calling women 'weak' in child raising too! … [Read more...]

I am a Publican and a Heathen Part 4

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: The last part of a series by Bruce on how he came to be burned out of ministry and religion. Many of us here have had not dissimilar experiences as we deconverted from Quiverfull.This post concludes the I Am a Publican and a Heathen series. This series details my experiences as co-pastor of Community Baptist Church in Elmendorf Texas. In March 1994, I left a pastorate of eleven years and moved to Texas so I could co-pastor a thriving, growing Sovereign Grace Baptist church. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: All Worldly Entertainment Seeks to Seduce You Away From God?

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - Resisting the Seduction of Beautifully Packaged LiesEditor's note: Interesting that she only mentions music coming out of Nashville. But this idea that culture is corrupt is an old one, and applies even if you are not religious at all. There are always going to be songs, movies, styles of dress that you don't agree with. The difference is that most of us who aren't stuck in fundytown just skip over and do not indulge in things that offend us. Evangelicals turn it into a witchhunt/crusade. Mature people do not do that. … [Read more...]

New Bethany Home for Girls – Is Justice Delayed Justice At All For Carol Ann Cole?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThis week we're going to look at New Bethany Home for Girls and start to unpack all the allegations of criminal misconduct against New Bethany founder Mack Ford. Ford was an Independent Fundamentalist Baptist pastor who founded a troubled teen home in Arcadia, Louisiana and resisted all attempts by the state of Louisiana to oversee, inspect or investigate the home. Even state Fire Marshals were turned away from the gates of New Bethany. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Created Only to Look Pretty and Pop Out Babies?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Created With Divine PurposeEditor's note: We haven't quoted Nancy Campbell much here lately because her messages are always the same - Accept that God made you a woman and embrace all that is traditionally thought in long ago days that is the purpose of a woman. Notice that she's obsessing yet again over the womb. Sorry Nancy, but we are all way more than walking wombs with a pair of breasts attached. a … [Read more...]

Shackled Girl Part 16 Justice Delayed as Dog is Called ‘Prejudicial’

by PropinquaEditor’s note: Sigh. At this rate, the trial of the century will move to next century.For a couple of fellows who detest lawyers, Timothy and Esten Ciboro certainly are taking advantage of worldly legal thinking. What happened to their shared reliance on Yeshua ha-Mashiach, the Messiah, Son of God who is God?In the doghouse … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Victimhood Worst Thing Ever?

by Shalom Pearl Brand from No Greater Joy - Bossy FlossyEditor's note: This is Shalom's advice on how to keep one child from being bossy towards the next youngest sibling. The unquoted advice isn't bad, teach the kids to take turns being 'the boss' but this crap about victimhood and tattletails is just vile. These are children we're talking about and Shalom is making one type of negative childhood traits to be something almost evil. … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated: Part 8 – The Boys

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quotes from the book in blue text.In our latest installment of "The Boys of Botkin", we get to hear the Botkin Sisters' male friends views on pitfalls in guy-girl relationships.  After transcribing the quotations, I am extremely doubtful that any of the guys (including their married brother Ben) have actually had a relationship with a woman. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Anyone Hating Lori Alexander’s Book Hates God?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Should Young Women Teach Titus 2:4-5?Editor's note: Apologies on the lateness of the posting. Day spent at the ER. No worries I am fine I just have an over reacting lung doctor.But my sarcasm gene has been activated by the obvious lie in the words below. Lori spent the first six long paragraphs before this quoted bit explaining how young women have no right to teach or blog to help other women, only older women can do that. But the laughable lie in all of this is her claims that the book and her blog aren't the same. BULL-YOU-KNOW-WHAT! The chapters have the exact same subjects, some of the same wordings/word-strings and verbiage as the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Colleges Are Over Priced Husband Hunting Grounds?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Sending Daughters to College to Find HusbandsEditor's note: I don't know what's worse about this: that Lori believes the primary goal of a woman going to college is to find a husband or the photo she used of a girl in a pussy bow blouse, white gloves and wool blazer! Both the image and the notion date back to the 1950s when upper class and some middle class young women went to college to find a better class of husband and earn their MRS degree. Cognitive dissonance and isolation create some rather strange ideas. It's never a good idea to get an education only with the purpose of finding a man. Do it for yourself. … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Food on the Floor?

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Godly Homes Have Everything In Its Place?

by Patty of Glorious Within Her - 3 Ways to Reflect God's Nature in Our HomesEditor's note: I'm always amazed when I see the lengths of Biblical justification that the Quiverfull and Evangelical Mommy Bloggers will go to in order to make their own personal preferences 'Godly'. At least she's not trying to say sloppy housekeepers should go to jail, like Lori Alexander approves of. … [Read more...]
