Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: Saeed Abedini Hates Hillary Clinton and Women?

by Saeed Abedini on Facebook today:Editor's note: First of all, NLQ is neither for or against Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate. What we are sharing this for is the complete misogynistic views of known wife abuser former prisoner Saeed Abedini. This is a guy that runs around pretending to be some sort of Uber-Pastor all the while he was abusing his wife. Now he's doubling down on hateful anti-women rhetoric? Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. So many of these 'Good Patriarchs' really hate women, while hiding behind the Bible. This is a guy that ordered his wife to support him, not say a word about the abuse yet refused to go to any type of marriage counseling … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Learning Outside of the Home?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Preparing Children for the FutureEditor's note: More educational fear-mongering from Nancy Campbell, putting down all schools and schooling that does not take place in the home. There's also nothing in the Bible to suggest that the 40 years it took for Moses and his people to find the promised land had anything to do with schooling, Egyptian or otherwise. Nancy is playing bizarre Biblical interpretation again. I am always amazed at how many different types of fear-mongering she routinely comes up with. … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated – Part 1 Chapter 10

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideText is in blue for quoted parts of the book.This chapter is titled "Playing with Matches: Meddling with Other People's Relationships".   Honestly, most of this very, very short chapter is on what you can and cannot talk to female friends about.The introduction for this chapter is the worst historical mangle of the entire book. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Healer But Don’t Use Modern Medicine?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - You Are a HealerEditor's note: So it's not enough in Nancy's world to homeschool your children, grow a large garden, cook from scratch, keep an immaculate home, and have no negative thoughts and words, now you must also try to heal everyone around you and without much reliance on modern medicine? Nope, Nancy, there are things that are best left to doctors, like antibiotics when you have a serious infection, or insulin injections and monitoring your blood sugar. Nancy might want to note that giving others medical advice is illegal in some areas. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Cloister Your Children?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Cloistered Homeschool SyndromeEditor's note: Sharing this not because it is bad theology, no, it's actually an emotionally healthy thing for everyone to allow their children to develop without smothering or isolating them. The reason NLQ is posting this is because while Michael Pearl is decrying this cloistering by homeschooling families he's also the guy that thinks if you allow your children to go to youth group or any activity not expressly supervised by a parent then the child will be corrupted. He is guilty of teaching this exact same advice even while decrying it. You cannot win in the eyes of Michael Pearl. Only he is doing it exactly right. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How to Raise ‘Cowardly’ Boys?

by Nicole Cook of Nancy Campbell's Above Rubies - Raising Godly Sons in an Ungodly WorldEditor's note: Interesting this woman says this considering so many men in the world of quiverfull seem to be weak, whiny guys that seem to think everything in the outside world threatens their masculinity. I guess if you're not very sure of your own masculine to begin with you will see threats everywhere, even in being as well-groomed as many men they define as 'metro-sexual'. She sounds as though she's equating cowardliness with homosexuality. … [Read more...]

“Quiverfull” Blogger’s Advice for Christian Wives: Don’t Ask Husbands to Help Around the House

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ Founder from Raw StoryEditor's note: In the last few months so much poisonous quiverfull theology has emerged from the blog Always Learning by Ladies Against Feminism editor Lori Alexander. Believing that getting your children to obey by beating them? Yes. Saying that no woman is physically or emotionally or intellectually capable of holding a job like a man? Yes. Believing that every women is to be at the beck and call of every man? Yes. Many of us at NLQ have lived through the pain and harm that these ideas cause and hope no one else falls for this. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Submission Does Not Cause Abuse?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - What to do in Cases of Abuse or Emotional TurmoilEditor's note: While the steps to take if you are being abused in the original post that were written are mostly good and legitimate ways to respond to being abused by your spouse they weren't written by Lori Alexander. But this beginning bit was written by Lori Alexander and seems to say that she believes that very very few women are being truly abused at the hands of their husbands. Way to victim blame there... … [Read more...]

What are you Doing? Chapter 6 – All Girls Need Are Big Boobs?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerToday's chapter is oh so mercifully brief, like the madness that seizes me every time I go to the animal shelter and I contemplate adopting every animal there, a millisecond, reality intrudes and then it was GONE! It is under three pages and we are spared the pious pontifications of Sakal Davidson and the horny schoolboy actions of Andrew Adamson. My review is almost longer than the actual chapter!Too bad both Sakal and Andrew are being replaced by she of the ridiculous name Maydyn and Sakal's other half – Isha. Still in the park, but not at that blasted picnic table for once. Maydyn is sitting on a park bench when Isha rushes up, demands a hug and invades M … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Denigrate Needs and Call Them Choices?

by Tim Bayly from The Bayly Blog - Welcome to Fatherhood: You Are What You EatEditor's note: There's so much hateful shaming over possible allergies and food needs, which do vary wildly among people, in this sneeringly awful piece on Father's Day from Bayly. He uses this awkward, blaming and silly story on food allergies and needs to slide later in the piece into saying that you cannot pick a church based on what he thinks are silly things...the pastor having hipster eyeglass frames or the style of music. Do people really chose churches or their own eating needs in such a shallow ridiculous way? I think it's likely done in all seriousness and Bayly is disrespecting people for having … [Read more...]
