vyckiecnn

ETA: This did not happen tonight. Al Jazeera went with a story on the Zika virus and Ebola instead. Vyckie was texted by her contact that the show had been rescheduled but not what the new date is.

Wish the show was giving equal time to former QF families trying to put their lives back together after life in the lifestyle. Don't miss it!Wonder if Nancy is going to slip up and reveal yet again that one of the big things she believes is that Quiverfull … [Read more...]

Part 8: Hypervigilance in the Wider World – Adventures in Ambiguity

AA Uniformity

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceAll images by Cindy Kunsman and used with permission from Under Much GraceHigh demand groups manage tension and pain which arise from natural and healthy disagreements and differences by forcing uniformity. Again, we come back to the fact of life that we human beings are very dynamic and diverse, something that a group purports to “correct” for the member, giving the illusion that they've resolved that healthy tension. Anyone who espouses beliefs that are different from the group are discounted or demonized which further galvanizes the control that they hold over a member. In doing so, they force and reinforce the idea that t … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Evangelicals Insist Adoptees Immediately Become Exactly Like Them?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the things we've seen in Quiverfull child collection via adoption is the adopting parents expectations that the adopted child, no matter age, race or culture, immediately adapt to their culture and worldview. It doesn't matter if it's Susanna Musser and her group of internationally adopted special needs children, or Nancy Campbell's missing Liberian adopted children or the 'Duck Dynasty' spin off show involving the adoption of an African American child by white parents Jep and Jessica. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Resist Babies?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Can Resist A Baby?Editor's note: Who can resist a baby? Lots of folks. College students, senior citizens, high school students, men and women working towards a goal, single people, married people and hopefully those ladies in the path of the Zika virus. A baby is not a trophy or a prize collected at the end of the particular difficult game. They aren't a box to be checked off on a list. They are a serious commitment, a life time commitment and not everyone is prepared to make that commitment no matter how Nancy phrases it in bad poetry. … [Read more...]

Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book.

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles – 10 Reasons Christian Couples Should NOT See Marriage Counselors as always linked through Do Not Link for your safety and the admin’s sanity.Editor's note: The many commenters who say that Larry doesn't want a wife or a life's partner, what he really wants is a slave, are clearly correct. Again, a woman cannot talk to a man about his porn or hiding things. Only if it's criminal behavior. So if your husband refuses to work and sits around wanking to internet porn all the live long day you cannot say anything to him about that? Everything he says creates an unsafe environment that leads to possible abuse. … [Read more...]
