Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Pornographers and Queers Want to Molest Your Children?

by Rebekah Pearl Anast and Gabriel Anast from No Greater Joy - Safeguarding Your ChildrenEditor's note: Are we even sure this 'magazine' Rebekah found was porn and not just something semi-normal like a Victoria's Secret catalog or a Hanes underwear catalog? And pornographic images stapled to trees in the woods? Seems extremely unlikely, unless maybe you are living in a small town where they keep nothing but convicted sexual predators. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Pornographers and Queers Want to Molest Your Children?

by Rebekah Pearl Anast and Gabriel Anast from No Greater Joy - Safeguarding Your ChildrenEditor's note: This is a long article we are breaking down into smaller pieces and sharing here to highlight the outrageous teachings and stories from the Pearl children's childhood that sound too crazy to be true. According to the Pearls perverts are out there throwing porn magazines next to the road? This is the first I've heard of anything remotely like that. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare?

by Matthew Jacobson from MatthewLJacobson.com - Modesty and What My 12 Year Old Son Has to do With How You Dressed TodayEditor's note: So typical that this guy makes it all about the wrong choices of everyone else instead of trying to teach his son not to stare, to take responsibility for where his eyes and thoughts roam. This type of thinking only continues to drive Rape Culture, treating women like objects to ejaculate to and men into little more than beasts unable to control their sex drives. Every woman in the world is not responsible for this kid's struggle with purity! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare?

by Matthew Jacobson from MatthewLJacobson.com - Modesty and What My 12 Year Old Son Has to do With How You Dressed TodayEditor's note: Mr. Jacobson started off his essay bemoaning the 'I'll wear whatever I feel like' movement, that is obviously some sort of backlash against the slut-shaming of the purity crowd. It is prime bikini season right now, which means it's also prime Evangelical pearl-clutching and slut-shaming over clothing choices season. For once the Duggar family's idea of shouting 'Nike' so that all the boys will stare at their shoes instead of revealed female flesh feels about a million times healthier than this dad's ranting. A quick warning about his site, just going … [Read more...]

Shackled Girl: Part 7 – Sometimes ‘Home School’ is Neither

by PropinquaEditor’s note: People are wondering whether Timothy Ciboro was a “real” home-schooling parent, or whether he merely hid three children behind Ohio’s lax home-schooling laws. Either way, he avoided pesky oversight while allegedly abusing his ex-girlfriend’s daughter. It’s time for the parental rights movement within home-schooling to stop viewing injured and dead children as unfair PR problems. They need to face the abuse that happens in some home-schooling families, and work to end that abuse. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Grandma Does Not Approve Then Take Extreme Measures?

by Debi Pearl from Above Rubies - Wolf in Grandma's ClothingEditor's note: This popped up when I was searching for what the Pearl's have had to say about the LGBT community. As usual it looks like the Pearls believe that instead of discussion, heeding the feelings of others and possible compromise you go to extremes. The reality of it is that there is conflict in almost all families. No one is going to agree on things 100% of the time. It's normal. What isn't normal is not dealing in reality with family members and purposely demonizing them like this. … [Read more...]

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

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: No Fat Kids Allowed?

by Shoshanna Pearl Easling from No Greater Joy - Why I Don't Have Fat KidsEditor's note: This was published this very morning and as soon as my eyes fell upon the title my mouth popped open and I gagged. How horrible she is both fat shaming and parent shaming. Isn't it possible she has thin children because her husband is a lousy supporter? Is she one of the daughters living in grinding poverty with a man that either refuses to work or works very little? I will agree that it is important to teach your children nutrition and to feed them properly, but this, there are no words. Michael Pearl's abusive nature unto the next generation.  … [Read more...]
