Quoting Quiverfull: God Hates R Rated Movies?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - Why Watching People Make Out Should Be AwkwardEditor's note: One thing you can count on from the Quiverfull/CPM/Fundamentalist movement is that they will keep moving the bar, changing the rules, until everything except reading your Bible and praying is 'sinful' This piece basically says if you are not uncomfortable watching a movie scene of people deeply kissing, much less having sex, then there is something 'wrong' with you in your spiritual life. Yeah, keep moving that line and telling yourself you are hole-y, err, holy. It really is all about sex in that world. Seems like the author is coming very close to calling passionate kissing pornography. … [Read more...]

Image from Wordgazer's Words

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's Words originally published March, 2012I walked into a Christian book store the other day, and happened to look at the section on marriage.  And guess what?  Every book on the shelf was some variation on "husbands, here's how to lead your wives/wives, here's how to submit to your husband's authority."  Not one book on the shelves said, "Here's how to be co-leaders together of your home and family.  Here's how to live in mutuality as best friends and partners, deferring to one another in love." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Control Every Thought?

quotingquiverfull

by Jessica from Smartter Each Day - Getting rid of ANTS: tips for AnxietyEditor's note: While there is no avoiding some anxiety in life and it is not healthy to be in a constant state of anxiety it's not the end of the world. Your feelings ARE your feelings. This lie that parts of the church tell that you must only have positive thoughts and emotions harms many women, causing them to feel like they're a failure. Own your feelings because most of the time they are trying to tell you something. … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt

Notquoting

NLQ SASBN member Boze Herrington has written a review of the new Netflix show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt" for The Guardian newspaper. If you've not seen this new television show you might want to watch a few episodes. It's a comedy and yes, it is somewhat silly at times, but the draw for anyone in the former Quiverfull movement is that the show tackles the difficult issue of what it is like when you leave a cult and your entire frame of reference on life is what you learned within the cult. It manages to capture that perfect awkwardness in readjusting or adjusting for the first time to the outside world. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Purity Rings Reflect Your Respect of God?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from A Lovely Calling (formerly Young Keepers of the Home) - Should Christian Girls Wear Purity Rings?Editor's note: How you treat your purity is a display of your relationship with God? Sounds a little too too simplistic. Purity rings - What are your thoughts on those? … [Read more...]

News: Adoption Rehomer Justin Harris Does Not Want Raped Minors Having Abortions

news

You would think that Arkansas Representative Justin Harris, who has been in the news lately for rehoming his two adopted daughters with a rapist, would at least allow that scandal to die down before embarking in another controversial action. Now he's sponsoring a bill that will make it illegal for minors to receive abortions. … [Read more...]

by Kaleesha Williams cross posted from her blog The Lost (and Found) Mind of Kaleesha WilliamsMy parents visited us the other day. They live only 30 mins away but we don’t get together very often. No particular reason, just life things. And we’re each 15 minutes from town, in opposite directions, so there’s no just stopping by on your way somewhere. It was a nice visit. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Young Girls Going to ISIS Because of ‘Feminism’?

quotingquiverfull

by Mrs. Jessi L. from Ladies Against Feminism - Western Culture, ISIS and the Longings of the HeartWARNING!!! If you go to Ladies Against Feminism and click on their link to ISIS. NSA, Homeland Security and law enforcement routinely monitor visitors to sites linked with terrorist ties!Editor's note: One of the most awkward segues from 'ISIS Evil Muslim Terrorists' to 'They just need Jesus' seen in a long time. Reads like the author feels compelled to point out things in Islam that are considered good in Quiverfull and Fundamentalist Christianity, yet condemns the girls for not doing it for Christ. Everyone does need to feel as though they have a purpose in life, but who is to say … [Read more...]

But Jesus Never Mentioned Gay People

Image from Defeating The Dragons - Samantha Field

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons A few years ago, a friend of mine put up a link on Facebook with the a title something like “Every Verse Where Jesus Talks about Homosexuality.” Puzzled, I clicked through … only to get a completely blank page, with nothing but the title. And some ads, because, y’know, capitalism. I laughed, especially when I saw a number of confused people commenting on the facebook post, wondering why the page wouldn’t load. I think it’s one of the few click-bait articles I’ve ever enjoyed, mostly because I enjoy pointed humor. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Biblical Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Chip Ingram of Living On The Edge.Org and Focus On The Family - The Biblical Approach to Spanking Editor's note: While Chip's seven steps in the process to spanking are mostly good parenting I have to question if adding spanking to the rest of it is really necessary. Aren't there better ways to punish that hitting your child? Very surprised to hear Ingram approve of spanking as he seems in the sermons I've heard to be a bit more progressive than the average Fundi-Gelical pastor. … [Read more...]
