quotingquiverfull

by Bethany Baird from Girl Defined - Being Faithful to a Man You've Never MetEditor's note: One of the big things impressed upon girls in Quiverfull and the Christian Patriarch Movement is staying 'pure' in every way for some future husband supposedly out there waiting for you.

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDebi gives us a rundown on how she felt about Yetta's wedding.

Here is what one wise young woman did for her non-stress (sic), joyful wedding.When I attend (sic) Yetta's wedding, I was struck with its personal style and sheer simplicity. It was clear that everyone, including the bride and groom, was relaxed and having a good time. The people attending will look back to this wedding and think, "Wasn't it wonderful? They looked so happy." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Ladies Against Feminism Losing It Over ’50 Shades of Grey’

quotingquiverfull

from Ladies Against Feminism and the seven quoted articles they tagged about sex, perversion and the movie '50 Shades of Grey'. Editor's note: Wow, seven articles about sexuality, pornography and what LAF considers perversion in just a couple of days? Sounds like someone has some sexuality issues they're working out. They don't even put up this many articles at once about abortion near Right To Life Sunday. For years at NLQ we've theorized that large parts of the patriarchy is obsessed with sex, as much sex as they can get, like the Pearl's honeymoon tale or Vaughn Ohlman's insistence you get married young to keep from committing sexual sin, but we've never examined the female psyche in … [Read more...]

NLQ original image

From The Christian Science Monitor - Alecia Pennington can't prove she's an American - or that she even exists. What would you do?Editor's note: Be sure and read the entire article. Thankfully this terrible story is being picked up by the world's mainstream press as I've seen articles on Alecia Pennington's situation from press as far away as Australia. The total power many over-controlling homeschooling parents hold and exercise over their adult children is demeaning and disgraceful. It should be illegal to withhold identification documentation from an adult child. It is extremely abusive - Identification Abuse.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Misunderstanding ‘Patriarchy’?

quotingquiverfull

by Gabriel Hudelson of Thine is The Kingdom - Godzilla on PatriarchyEditor's note: This author is speaking on the HSLDA article published in August titled 'A Line in the Sand' and refuting some of it line by line. HSLDA wrote distancing itself from Doug Phillips, Bill Gothard and their definition of Patriarchy in an attempt to pretend to be different than Gothard and Phillips among other things. Is HSLDA being disingenuous or are they making real theological changes in how they view gender roles and submission of women? … [Read more...]

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog What Would Roger Sterling Do? originally published December 17, 2014 I was going to talk about my scintillating and thrilling day yesterday gravitating between lying on the sofa, the kitchen to shove batches of Christmas cookies in and out of the oven for Jim's office party, loading unloading folding ironing laundry between more bouts laying down on the sofa because of the flu but then I ran into a posting on Facebook that make me take a look at something I'd been heavily involved with over at the Creek Church - Gwen Shamblin and her Weigh Down Workshop. It must have been around 1997 or so when one of the older ladies at Creek Church started … [Read more...]
