Quoting Quiverfull: Weak Christian Men Cannot Be Expected to Control Their Lusts and Eyes?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Men Are to Blame for EverythingEditor's note: I am curious why at a point in the year when most of us are contemplating putting away summer clothes for warm clothing and sweaters plus copious amounts of pumpkin spice Lori Alexander decides to do multiple pieces for her blog on immodest dressing. We usually only see this level of blaming and shaming at the beginning of beach season in the CPM, not after it has ended and everyone has started the seasonal march back to layers of clothing. … [Read more...]

What are you Doing? – Chapter 13 Andrew Just Wants Sex!

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI had higher hopes for this chapter because in our last bit Andrew invited himself and the entire Terrefille clan over to Buttinski Sakal's home for dinner. Sadly there is little mention of the dinner or house because immediately after bolting down whatever it is that Isha cooked both Sakal and Maydyn's (gag!) father Pater (double gag! these awful awful belabored idiotic names!) depart for, you guessed it, Perv Park. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dressing Immodestly Sexually Harasses Men?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Do You Sexually Harass Men by the Way You Dress?Editor's note: At least she didn't use the ridiculous word 'defrauding', that indicates that by dressing in however female cultural enforcers deem immodest that you're failing to give the sex promised by your lack of clothing to the male lusting after you. Why is it never upon the man to simply look away? That's one of the simplest solutions to all this immodesty, have the man that might feel what you are wearing is wrong take charge of his eyes! Is he a beast without control or a small child with imperfect self control? Her words say nothing positive for the men of this world. … [Read more...]

Why I Stand With Colin Kaepernick

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: While this posting is not directly related to the Quiverfull world I believe it does illustrate something all of us deal with after leaving toxic faith environments - realizing that the political and social views we'd been spoon fed at our old churches are harmful to others and this world. No matter if you think what Kaepernick did was right or wrong I think most everyone will agree we are on the edge of destruction in a way that has been egged on by the extreme Christian Right. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Are Penis Homes?

by Mark Driscoll former pastor of Mars Hill Church.Editor's note: Mr. Driscoll made this hideous statement several years ago but it bears repeating since he has been reforming and opening a new church in Scottsdale Arizona after Mars Hill imploded. A pastor with such demeaning views of women has no business running a church. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Your Personal Rock Bottom?

This is a series we run every Thursday. The questions are things that people who may not know much about the Quiverfull movement or even Fundamentalist or Evangelical Christianity ask about the lifestyle. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life can only shine a light on the toxic nature of this lifestyle choice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Using Birth Control Means You Hate Your Husband?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? - The Destructive Effects of Birth Control on MarriageEditor's note: Again Zsuzsanna Anderson fails basic reading comprehension because this is what that same survey she's citing as evidence of the evils of birth control had to say about the pill and long term prospects for marriage: "Pill users were happier with their mate’s financial support and other nonsexual aspects of the relationship, however, and they were less likely to separate. This relationship stability might be caused by the bias of women on the pill toward low-testosterone men, who tend to be more faithful." I guess this lack of logic is to be expected from someone who claims t … [Read more...]

Managing Ignorance and Knowledge in Recovery

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceAll images by Cindy Kunsman from Under Much Grace and used with permission.Ignorance (lack of knowledge) affects all of us. Recognizing that you lack knowledgeable about something and seeking information or advice shows strength of character as well as wisdom in decision-making. The true problems arise for us when we don't realize that we're ignorant about a matter and to what extent our knowledge reaches. In the discussion of risk, often times, no one has information about uncertainty, but just that knowledge alone can help you make wiser decisions. So while you may feel like you're standing on the edge of a precipice … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Jezebel Women Compete With Men?

by Todd Tomasella from Safeguard Your Soul - The Godly Woman vs JezebelEditor's note: So now he adds 'home wrecking' and 'unmarried withered old maids' to his fright fest of how women not 100% fully submitted to a man will be punished. Why are men in the more extreme reaches of fundagelicalism so threatened by any small amount of power or personal agency possessed by a woman? … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet – What To Do?

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical,  rational and the best possible solution, in other words 1 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Jezebel Women Compete With Men?

by Eliset Igat and Todd from Safeguard Your Soul - The Godly Woman vs JezebelEditor's note: The amused part of me is laughing over the made up words in this like 'Jezebellian', but it's not funny at all when you realize what they are pushing here is a complete slavery via fundamentalist submission to men with no outs for abuse or allowances for a person's basic needs. When did having needs and taking steps to assure they are met become 'demonic'? … [Read more...]

Christian Porn: Kevin Sorbo’s Atheist Salvation Fantasy

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIn recent years, several movies marketed to Evangelicals have featured erotic scenes of Evangelical revivalism ravishing atheism. Movies such as God is Not Dead are built around the notion that the Christian gospel has the power to brings atheists to their knees. Never mind the fact that these Evangelical fantasies are about as real as the scenes found in countless porn movies. While I can point to countless Evangelicals who are now atheists, rare are atheists who become Christians. When people tell me that they were atheists before they embraced the wonderful, matchless grace of Jesus, I question them as t … [Read more...]
