Quoting Quiverfull: Trusting God For Handsome Husband?

by Stacy Reaoch from John Piper's Desiring God - What if God Wants me to Marry Someone Ugly?Editor's note: Oh my! This notion in the whole Purity Culture that it is not necessary to either love or be attracted to your husband or wife is a huge setup for an unhappy marriage! If, just if, it really was God arranging your marriage would He not know you well enough to bring you a husband or wife that makes your heart beat faster and you find attractive? I'm always amazed how Evangelical Quiverfull tells people that their God is so strong, but He cannot handle a simple assignment like a spouse that is not only Godly but also the perfect match in all ways. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Practicing Medicine Without a License?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - Living a Long and Healthy LifeEditor's note: Aunt Lori is busy making unsubstantiated claims about about the life of a man she claims lived to 168. There's no documented evidence that this man was anywhere near that old. Here's the legitimate list of the oldest confirmed and documented people. She approves of him because he eats the same way she does before going straight to junk science and unsupported supposition. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Unclear Communication About Communication?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Listen, TwinklebunsEditor's note: Truthfully I'm not entirely sure what Doug is whinging on about here? He started off waffling around about voice tones and dictionary definitions. This is a very different level of word salad that seems to say to be sure and judge others by how they dress, grunt and what car they drive, how you roll your eyes. Does anyone here speak word salad? … [Read more...]

Pastor Steven Anderson’s Fragile Masculinity and Racism

This morning I got up and as soon as I pulled up Facebook someone sent me this Youtube video of Steven Anderson working out interspersed with clips of former president Obama doing things like golfing, working out with small hand weights and horsing around trotting the halls of the White House with VP Joe Biden. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Love Equals Obedience?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Two Way StreetEditor's note: Looks like Nancy is taking up Debi Pearl and Lori Alexander's habit of hopping from topic to topic in Bible Twister. One minute claiming that obedience and love are the same before pivoting right back to womb worship. Different day, same old, same old. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – From Sin to Joy?

This isn't so much a question as it is an example of what happens when people at the lowest parts of their lives/marriages are exposed to one of the Pearl's horrible books. This woman is thanking Debi for writing 'Created To Be His Help Meet' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Books Ruin Marriages?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Most Marriage Books Hurt MarriagesEditor's note: Rolling laughing today over Lori Alexander's claims about MOST marriage books hurt marriages.

Not Quoting Quiverfull: How Do You Handle a Tantrum?

We all know how the Pearls think you should handle a toddler's tantrum, by beating them until they stop crying. But we don't talk about better ways to handle those things here very much and we really should.This video clip at the bottom of the post from the Seth Meyers talk show with Drew Barrymore had a segment where Drew spoke of dealing with epic meltdowns and tantrums in children without resorting to anything even remotely like a plumbing line. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull – Identifying Yourself as a Survivor is a Sin?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - What Only the Infinite Can ProvideEditor's note: Doug starts off another piece in mind control over his poor little raped and abused supposedly fictional young woman with lots of 'Come to Jesus's' thrown about in regards to knowing your own identity before moving onto the idea that thinking of yourself as a 'survivor' is somehow embracing victimhood and squeezing his easily squeezed out version of God. Insulting to anyone that's ever lived through sexual assault. Sorry, Doug, you do not get to define how survivors of sexual abuse get to self-identify. … [Read more...]

Lori Alexander’s Way or the Highway? Silencing the Depressed

Spiritual Sounding Board has a posting today concerning the recent blog post of Lori Alexander's we quoted here for our Quoting Quiverfull feature. It is the one where Lori is handing out advice on to happ-happ-happy your way out of depression titled "Suicide and Depression Skyrocketing Among Women"Lori wasn't content to blame this trend on feminism and non-submissive women. She spent much of the post denigrating those that suffer from mental health issues. But none of that was the big problem. As usual it was the comments, comments from women expressing  that they suffer from suicidal thoughts or some form of depression. Lori replied to them, in ways so dismissively that I would venture … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Anxiety, Pain and Illness Caused by Working Women?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - "Hath God Said...?"Editor's note: We all saw how Lori Alexander took Debi Pearl's horrible book, rewrote it and republished the material like it was her original ideas in "The Power of the Transformed Wife". Apparently Debi's new book "The Hidden Help Meet: Stand By Your Man" does not have enough material in it to do more than furnish some slight nagging, shaming and blaming ideas to one posting by Lori. Lori's take on Denny Kensaton's sermon is that claiming if you reject her ideas of being a stay at home wife and mother than God will punish you with ill health and mind. … [Read more...]
