Quoting Quiverfull: Nancy Campbells Adds Another ‘Must Do’?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - How Does Your Garden Grow?Editor's note: If there is one thing you can count on with Nancy Campbell is that she will find new 'must do's for every God-fearing quiverfull momma. She's come up with a new one. You must grow a garden to be Godly, even if you are living in the city and growing that garden in pots and planters. While fresh produce does usually taste better there's nothing in the Bible to indicate it's a sin to buy it at the local farmers market or super market. This is more of Nancy's Godly busy work designed to lord it over her followers that they aren't doing it right if they don't do exactly like her. … [Read more...]

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - When Christians Do NothingEditor's note: In the midst of the many ugly responses to the Target corporation recent bathroom policy involving transgender customers there have been some rather awful protests at the stores involving people like Anderson and his church. In a recent sermon Anderson goes after another pastor for not being rough enough on the transgender community. This is the sort of language and behavior that has landed the pissing pastor on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate group list. The thing that Anderson is the most incensed about has to do with the fact that this other pastor allows anyone of any sexuality to … [Read more...]

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours?!? - Here or There?Editor's note: Now Zsuzsanna is claiming that keeping your girls homeschooled prevents out of wedlock pregnancies and molestation.  All of which is laughable if you look at the many times it's emerged that there are patriarchs that rape their daughters and sons, like Josh Duggar, that molest their sisters in the CPM.

The Smell Test: 5 Signs of a Toxic Church

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samanthapfield.comThis weekend we drove past a billboard advertising a “Christian Center” with one of those buzzword names, like Thirst or Resurgence or Ember or Pathway or Crossover (and, suddenly, these are also names for cars). I didn’t know what a “Christian Center” could be, so I looked it up thinking maybe it was like a Christian-themed recplex or something.

I started reading portions out loud to Handsome, but one phrase (“mode of dress”) pulled me up in my tracks. … [Read more...]
