Quoting Quiverfull: Branded a “Destroyer”?

by Peter Bradrick from his Facebook The past decade of my life has been defined by my close relationship with my mentor and former spiritual father. Those who know me recognize my longstanding, fierce commitment to his family, his work, and his legacy. As soon as I caught wind of what was going on, I became very involved in working towards fulfilling the duties of friendship and brotherhood – to confront a man who has been like a father to me for a third of my life and plead with him to truthfully confess, and to genuinely take responsibility for longstanding betrayal of everything we had fought together for with the hope of ultimate restoration. … [Read more...]

Fascinating Womanhood Review: Pandora’s Box

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons  I’m going to be honest: I have no idea what to do with this chapter. None. So, for today’s post, I’m going to quote a some larger portions, in their entirety, add some of my concerns, and see what you all think of what she says.  In a Pandora’s Box reaction, instead of the man responding with love and tenderness, he becomes angry and pours out hostile feelings toward his wife. Why does he do this? … [Read more...]

Christian Cliches: “Lean Not on Your Own Understanding”

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsWhen I was part of Maranatha Campus Ministries back in the 1980s, "Lean not on your own understanding" was a cliche they were particularly fond of.  I remember when they were teaching us that Genesis 1:28, where God told the first male and female to "have dominion. . . over every living thing that moves on the earth," was a divine mandate meaning that today Christians are to "have dominion" in society and government, to "take over" for Jesus and make Christian principles and morality the "law of the land."  I remember shaking my head in puzzlement.  That passage doesn't say anything about human beings ruling over other human … [Read more...]

Fascinating Womanhood Review: The Male Ego

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’m halfway tempted to have today’s post be nothing but a collection of choice quotes from this chapter, because they almost entirely speak for themselves. However, like most of what Helen’s says, it’s all grounded in (unfortunately) common stereotypes about gender, so they are worth discussing. The chapter is titled “Masculine Pride,” and I had a hard time identifying anything in it that I could agree with or tolerate. Beginning with this: … [Read more...]

by Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of pastor Steven L Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? -Some Exciting Changes(Editorial note: Check out the oh so Christian and loving t-shirt worn by her husband in the first photo in the original posting. Whatever happened to doing as the Bible says and praying for your leaders, even if you happen to abhor them?) These classes have been so much fun! I typically go in the evenings, so by the time I get home, the house is picked up, the kids have had dinner, are bathed and ready for bed, with teeth brushed, the dinner dishes are done, and story time is in full swing. If that sounds like a dream come true - well, it is! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Scream at Your Children?

From Salon quoting Glenn Beck's recent show - Glenn Beck: Scream at your children until they believe in God.  Glenn Beck branched out on Wednesday from his usual political conspiracy crazy-making to dispense some terrible parenting advice. You see, Beck believes that parents should use verbal abuse and physical intimidation to teach their children that their rights “come from God” by getting “in their face” and making them cry. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Understanding Education?

by R. C. Sproul Jr. of Highlands Ministries speaking of homeschooling - A Man For All Seasons Among those lies hatched by the devil’s Research and Development lab that have found the most favor among modern American evangelicals is this- the path to personal prosperity is acquiring specialized educational credentials in a field in great demand.
