Quoting Quiverfull: Focus On The Family Advocating Abortion?

by Jeremy Lundmark of Theology Mix - How to Murder Your Child SafelyEditor's note: Apparently FotF has put out a pamphlet outlining the best way to take the 'Morning After' pill and many in the evangelical world are reacting poorly. They are calling for a boycott of FotF and any Christian retailers that carry this booklet for sale. It's been on Christian bookstore shelves for over 4 years now. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Willfully Misunderstanding What Freedom of Religion Is?

by the Patrick Johnson family - Johnson Family Ministry Blog - What's the Problem with Kentucky Governor Accommodating Kim Davis' Religious Beliefs?Editor's note: The very fact that Patrick Johnson has his nine year old son photobombing gay couples with a hateful sign says a lot about him beyond his misunderstanding of US constitutional law. He's claiming like so many others that the Freedom of Religion laws should be only to promote Christianity. This belief is particularly disgusting in light of the fact that Thanksgiving is in a few short days. Remember the Pilgrims? They left England in order to be able to practice what they believe without interference, not force their beliefs on … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Has Caused All of Society’s Ills?

by Kevin Swanson as quoted by Raw Story - Kevin Swanson Worries Day Care Will Turn Kids GayEditor's note: Kevin has blamed all sorts of things for turning children gay: Girl Scout Cookies, the Disney movie "Frozen", the children's movie "How To Train Your Dragon" and more. Now he's blaming that and many other things he doesn't agree with on putting children in daycare? I think it sounds like he should be a daycare because no real life genuine adult could possibly be as childish and tantrum-throwing toddler-like. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage is Opposing Plumbing Fittings?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - What God Hath Joined TogetherEditor's note: Now Michael is equating marriage to plumbing fittings, as in if the parts don't easily go together and make one unit then there can be no 'marriage' What do you think about his analogy? One point that his homophobic rantings brings up is who has the right to define marriage? Is it those in the union? The government? The church? … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review 167 – 192

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comI think it’s possible that we might be over the hump as far as how terrible the chapters can get. The only sections left for the Lies Women Believe review cover children, circumstances, emotions, and the concluding segment. The “Emotions” chapter might be a bit rough, but today’s, compared to last week’s chapter, is a cake walk. Of course, almost anything compared to a doctrine that could kill women seems like a breeze.This week’s chapter covers what Nancy thinks about children, which means an extensive discussion on, you guessed it, family planning. IT’S UP TO US TO DETERMINE THE SIZE OF OUR FAMILY She roots her arg … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Speaking Plain Words Shows Love For Enemies?

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Love, Acceptance, and PragmatismEditor's note: This is one of the most frightening things about the Quiverfull movement, the attempt to seize and redefine language in order to force ones religious and political beliefs on another group of people, to legislate morality. There's a great deal in the unquoted parts about banning abortion, doing away with same sex unions and forcing young marriage on people that we'll not quote here. But the semantics of seizing the language that we use to discuss those things is a terrifying thing and how fundamentalism forces their views on others legally. No matter what Von says that is not love. … [Read more...]

A Few Thoughts on Abortion and Planned Parenthood Videos

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserI’ve been asked to give my take on the Planned Parenthood videos.When it comes to Planned Parenthood’s mission, to provide healthcare to women, I am 100% in their corner. Providing abortions is a small part of Planned Parenthood’s services, and defunding Planned Parenthood would have a deleterious effect on the health of poor women. Attempts to defund Planned Parenthood are driven by religious belief and bad science. We live in a secular state, one that supposedly separates church and state and one that values science; yet, when it comes to abortion, the debate is framed by religious claims that result … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Throwing Shade on Korea, ISIS and Abortion Because Jesus?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Mourning Over What Grieves ChristEditor's note: Colin is in rare form in this post. He manages to order others to mourn for things, claims to know what makes Jesus mourn and manages to be racist, paranoid anti-government and blaming of others in four short paragraphs. That takes talent! (/sarcasm). Seriously, there a whole lot of judging, blaming and shaming in his words. Is it really necessary to say those things to ask others to do more intercessory prayer? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The World Hates Babies?

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - How The World's Hatred of Babies May Affect You More Than Anything ElseEditor's note: Is it ever a good idea to have a baby just because some naysayers are claiming that the world might be negatively impacted if we have less citizens? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Believe Doctors?

by Debi Pearl from Preparing To Be A Help Meet.Com - Pregnant With CancerEditor's note: So now Debi is denigrating doctors, people highly educated in the scientific field medicine as not being credible. Guessing what what little she's saying about the situation of the mother that the mother was advised to either abort the baby or deliver very early in order to have the best odds for surviving the cancer. It's a hard choice and one that each person needs to approach on their own, decide what they can or cannot live with and make without someone with zero knowledge and education, like Debi, shaming them. … [Read more...]
