Quoting Quiverfull: Part 7 – How to Beat Your Children?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – In Defense of Biblical ChastisementEditor's note: The first paragraph in the 'What if they fight back?' is some of the cruelest parenting advice I've ever seen, like something written by a sick sadist that gets his jollies off on torturing people, someone that needs to be locked up from polite society. He's advocating this type of outrageous behavior towards your beloved children. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – How to Beat Your Children?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – In Defense of Biblical ChastisementEditor's note: Michael continues on with the disgusting minutia of beating children to make them behave. Trigger Warning for so many reasons since this is beyond disgusting. He tries to claim that the pain is not the most important thing. A side note: For years is has been whispered that Pearl was beaten unmercifully by his own grandmother as a child, that his child discipline rules flow out of his own ill treatment as a child. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Buy Your Spanking Rod?

From Raw Story and the Phil Ferguson Radio Show - Christian Peddling Creepy 'Discipline' Sticks Wants to Keep His Business a SecretEditor's note: Patheo writer The Friendly Atheist wrote about this a few days ago and it's popping up in many places online now. This man, Steve Haymond, is quietly resuming his manufacturer and sale of this plastic 'discipline' sticks and selling them on the down low. He used to have a ministry named Biblical Child Training that says many of the same things Michael Pearl preaches and sold the plastic ruler-like implements. Clearly Haymond knows what he is doing is wrong somewhere deep inside as his letter to former customers stresses a need for secrecy and … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – How to Beat Your Children?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – In Defense of Biblical ChastisementEditor's note: We're going deep into trigger warning territory as Pearl explains more on how he thinks a piece of 1/4 inch plumbing line should be applied harshly to the tender skin of a child to make him or her behave. What type of sadist thinks this is ever a good idea? Is he reenacting childhood trauma? Is there a psycho-sexual overtone to this he carried out of his own childhood? What happened to create this monstrous fixation with beating children? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – How to Beat Your Children?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – In Defense of Biblical ChastisementEditor's note: No matter how Michael words it the story about spanking the five month old in the car seat is always wrong! A child that age isn't capable of rebellion, defiance or understanding what his mother wants him to do. He's acting/reacting in an elemental way without reasoned measured thought. This is child cruelty. Notice how quickly Michael Pearl goes into 'The Rod' section? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Spanking ‘Strong-Willed’ Children?

by Jessica Smartt of Smartter Every Day - Your Kids Want You to Discipline ThemEditor's note: While I would agree with her that you must reward good behavior and discourage bad behavior that's as far as it goes. Physical punishment - spanking - should have no place in in emotionally healthy homes no matter what an ancient book by James Dobson says. It only teaches a child that those who are bigger and stronger can inflict violence upon them, that violence is a legitimate way to settle things. There are so much better parenting options out there, such as the Love and Logic series, that do not involve beating your precious child! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 Teach Your Children to Fear You or Have Them Harmed?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Organize and ManageEditor's note: Michael starts with what is obviously one of his faker, more made up stories, in order to blame and shame a father protrayed as trying to protect his young daughter. Do any stores have huge heavy automatic doors that swing like this as he describes them as a 'child-swatter'? What's so wrong about a father rescuing their child from a dangerous situation (even a fake one in a story like this) and dealing with the child later about not listening to what they were saying? Yes, folks, another treatise on beating fear into your child to make them mind. One note Michael. Keep in mind the child he is describing is an eleven … [Read more...]
