The Duggar’s Television Show “19 Kids & Counting” Officially Cancelled

I knew it was too much to ask for a week without new Duggar news - at least other than Anna Duggar's baby being overdue and Amy Duggar's engagement. The internet news sites are all abuzz in the last few hours. The Learning Channel finally did the decent thing, officially cancelling Duggar cash-cow and television show "19 Kids & Counting" … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 24 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 4Editor's note: Thankfully Michael has stopped making the types of references to sex and hormones that require you bleach your brain to get rid of the images his words place there. But he's still in parental blaming mode, insisting that if you do not allow your hormone-filled teenaged boys some interaction with girls they'll jump ship anyway. It's a no win game when he's setting the standards. … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – How To Guard My Heart??

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 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feeling Guilty – You’re Doing It All Wrong?

by Brittany La'Vell from Whole Magazine - Are You Holding Back From God?Editor's note: So now when you confess your sins to God you have to worry that you didn't confess them right or give it all to God?? More ridiculous putting increasing qualifiers on the simplicity of Jesus in the world of scary intense fundamentalism. Why are there so many blogs out there that keep adding rules for the quiverfull or evangelical daughters to follow? Do they really not have enough real things to do so they have to keep moving the goal post to fill the time? Legalism, fear mongering, making other young women fearful and feel guilty - This writer has all the makings of a future Debi Pearl or Nancy … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 23 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 4Editor's note: Oh and here we go! A few good ideas leavened with some poisoned ideas. Make that boy work so hard his testosterone is so drained he will not resort to masturbation. Michael doesn't seem to understand that girls in that age group are almost as prone to masturbation as boys. It's NORMAL. Not in Pearl World. I do like his idea of hosting your kids friends en masse at your home so they have fun in a safe manner. When my kids were growing up my home was open to all of their friends and it worked out well. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 22 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 4Editor's note: You didn't think we were actually done with Michael's shaming and blaming of homeschooling parents he says are not doing it right? We had to take a mental health break. Here's more. Michael explains how he met the needs of his kids for play and adventure without broken bones or boredom. Snake killing and fish spearing along with other rough play dominates. He mentions his boys only playing organized youth baseball one season, which makes me wonder if it was because they might have had trouble getting Michael or Debi to drop everything every day for practice or if the social aspects or costs of playing strained the … [Read more...]

by Vyckie Garrison No Longer Quivering founderVery interesting ... Scott Brown recently added a video to the National Center for Family Integrated Churches network page with a disclaimer stating that NCFIC doesn't actually evaluate the churches listed in the network, and he lists seven questions to ask which supposedly will help True Believers™ find "healthy congregations." … [Read more...]

Mythical Creation Science: The Beginning

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: New series by Mel, who is a science teacher. This is an important one considering so many in Quiverfull homeschool their children and may not have much of a science background. Good work Mel!I'd like to start a series of blog posts on the problems with "Creation Science". Since I've been reading NLQ, I realized that some parents who home-schooled while in CP/QF then left or kids who have grown up in that system may realize that "Creation Science" seems...wrong....but don't entirely know how to explain the actual sciences involved well enough to fix their educational gaps. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cosmo Has An Anti-Christian Agenda?

by Kathy Q. Duane from her blog It's The Women, Not The Men - Admirable Women – Victoria Hearst Accuses Her Family’s Magazine – Cosmo – and Helen Gurley Brown of Purposely Promoting Pornography to MinorsEditor's note: And here I thought all these years that it was merely a silly magazine using the old 'sex sells' routine! There's so much awful and blaming in this woman's writing that it was hard figuring out what best to quote here. Please be sure to read the entire thing. Kathy Duane is one of the nastiest worded, most blaming, disgusting 'Good Christian' (tm) women writers out there. She better hope that the God she claims to believe in who says you will one day be required to account … [Read more...]
