The Deliberate Spread of Misinformation

NLQ original image

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist In Spite of ThemWhen my siblings and I were children, my parents deliberately misinformed us about the world. I am still not sure what the overall goal was. Some of it makes sense. The ideological nonsense that contributed to psychological control makes sense, such as the misinformation about lust, reproduction, and consequences, but some of it really doesn't make sense. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Bible Makes Child Training Perfect?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part ten of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: Thankfully this is the last part of Michael's new foreword for his book. The bad news is that this is only part one of two. Expect to see part two up sometime in May. If Mr. Pearl is so interested in Biblical child training how could he miss the part that talks about the father not frustrating the child? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Yelling – The New Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part nine of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: I agree with Michael that yelling is no solution, but spanking is not the answer to yelling. You cannot replace one bad discipline method with another. Plus, I think many parents have been yelling at their kids for a long long time now. It's not a new thing. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Another Michael Pearl Small Survey Sample Pro Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part seven of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: I believe that Michael is referring to his appearance on the Anderson Cooper show on CNN about three years ago. Video of his appearance here, here and here.  This was in the aftermath of the deaths of Hana Grace Williams and Lydia Shatz, both disciplined to death by their families using Mr. Pearl's methods. Both homes had well worn copies of "To Train Up A Child" yet Michael denies his teachings had anything to do with their deaths. Michael went all the day to NYC to appear on the show of someone he would consider a 'sodomite' to defe … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in the Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Whew, finally the end and it's all Michael doubling down on his message of control everything you expose your children to and homeschool them.  Don't forget to put on the full armor of God too! The question all of this brings up to my mind is has the church really changed that much in the last thirty years beyond the rock and roll worship music, fancy lights and technology? I'm not sure it has. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Now Michael aims for the trite cliched Christian answer. Not only control every moment of those childrens lives, you must put on the imaginary armor of God. Followed by parent-blaming if the children don't turn out as obedient little moral robots. Michael, like Debi, never misses any opportunity to belittle or shame others. … [Read more...]
