Quoting Quiverfull: Poisonous Christian Purity Culture Even In Africa?

by DE FC Jonnpedro from Facebook as quoted by Vyckie GarrisonEditor's note: Make sure you look at the photo accompanying this post at Facebook. It's set so that it cannot be copied and shared here and it's a representation of slut shaming in the church. He compares a woman's unseen parts to a mine filled with gold and gems, not realizing that mines can collapse, can kill people and are deadly places to be, not always some wonderment filled with treasures untold like in Disney's movie "Aladdin" … [Read more...]

Christian Reconstruction, ATI, Abuse and Submission: Modesty and Lust Part 3

by SJ Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoSo-called ‘Christian’ Modesty is a strange critter, at best.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with any group implementing a dress code. Feeling like a rank hypocrite and jerk, where I was once dead set against school uniforms (when I was in school) I now think they are the only answer to any number of problems schools and students face.  If a church or sect, or cult wants to have their plain dress, head pieces, or sailor suits of a Hubbard rear admiral or something, that’s fine.  It is still a somewhat free country where we should be somewhat free to practice what ever form or religion, or no religion, as long as we don’t harm o … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Looking up to a Leader is Sexual Sin?

by Jim Bob Howard of Highlands Ministries and reposted at Ladies Against Feminism - Flirting With Sexual SinLadies, don’t think you’re off the hook; I’d like to talk to you for a minute, too. Most readers here probably don’t spend much time falling for the men on the “daytime dramas” and the romance novels, who are no more real than Miss Picture Perfect. Rather, you spend time reading and listening to homeschool conference speakers, preachers, authors, magazine editors, etc. and wishing your husband would be more like ________ (fill in the name), not realizing that Mr. Blank is a sinner, just like your husband. Beware: you are a daughter of Eve; don’t let yourself be deceived. You are not … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fashion Leads to Lust?

by Stephanus Blignaut from Go Tell My People - Modesty: Discouraging Lust and Encouraging Godliness Women are so easily caught up in “what everyone is doing” or what is available in the shops and what is promoted in magazines and TV. They don’t think about how their body is portrayed and what it causes in men – the stumbling block it becomes for men. Women condemn lust in a man when they see it but somehow they don’t make the connection between the condemnable lust and their own clothes that they are wearing. Not realizing this makes them stand guilty before God as a stumbling stone because of the lust they caused. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fear and Readiness?

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Fear and Readiness It is a funny difference between conservatives and liberals that conservatives seem to always question liberals ideas, and liberals question conservatives motives. Indeed, when a liberal makes a movie about an evil conservative the conservative is almost never doing what the conservative says he wants to do (ie he is a hypocrite[1]) whereas a conservative movie will often show liberals living up to their stated ideals (which just happen to be wrong, immoral, and lead to a deranged and deprived society). … [Read more...]

Good Intentions Do NOT Success Make

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionVaughn Ohlman, the patriarch of the Ohlman family - literally, loves to tell the world how we have it all wrong.  How marriage in the hands of "young people" is the reason why marriage doesn't work.  That, if only we followed the ancient Jewish story of ole' Abe and his son, Isaac, all marriages would either be brilliantly perfect, or mostly work. … [Read more...]
