Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1- How to Beat Your Children?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - In Defense of Biblical ChastisementEditor's note: Here Michael builds up to how and why he thinks the 'rod of correction' should be applied and also tells that most parents aren't doing it right. He starts out well, with a bit of good advice about enjoying their children and developing mutual respect. However how can anyone say that they respect their children and still beat them is beyond me. This is from 2001, back before the deaths of Lydia Schatz and Hana Grace Williams. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Beat Your Lying Liar Child?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Child Extortionists?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Twinkie TwerpEditor's note: And we get to the heart of the nasty matter - apply the spanking, but only after being emotionally cruel to the child. Beat your child until his will is broken. Unless he is able to name-call a child something insulting followed by beating the child with a piece of plumbing pipe Mr. Pearl isn't happy … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 8 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: Warning! Lots of bad seafaring analogies ahoy! With a title like 'Jumping Ship' it was bound to happen. Wonder if Michael realizes that in many big ships of the past many times the crew had been kidnapped or Shanghaied from other places to serve as indentured servants upon the sea. Keeping children home in what amounts to indentured servitude isn't much better. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: Now Michael is responding to questions from his earlier posting on this subject. More doubling down on sin in other folks homes. Plus that whole old Christian martyrbating belief that the Devil is literally under ever bush seeking to feast on some poor helpless young adult former homeschooler. That old Devil is a busy dude the way they talk about him.This is part two of Michael's five part series on SGA jumping the family ship. Like part one at the end of each multi part bit we'll take a couple of days QQ breather  from the series before going on to the next part. It's just simply too toxic to do in one fell … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Discipline, Discipline, Discipline But Keep Your Daughters Unmarried?

by former Vision Forum friend Geoffrey Botkin hawking his newest CD/DVD/book on raising children on Ladies Against Feminism - How To Practice Biblical Discipline.Editor's note: The ladies of Ladies Against Feminism didn't even bother to try and write a review or put into their own words why they endorse this particular item by Botkin. They copied and pasted this right from his website. Odd that there's been no updates for over seven months at his single very adult daughters website Visionary Daughters, no online web tutorials about gilding your outside or what to do when there's no real role for you any longer. Most curious how silent they've been. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Spanking Leads to General Degeneration of Society?

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part eight of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: He's claiming that the anti spanking movement cannot prove their claims even as there are many more legitimate scientific studies showing that harming a child to make them behave is bad in the long run. Mr. Pearl ignores facts or blurts out lies about anything that runs counter to his belief.  This seems to be a typical thing to do in the world of Quiverfull and Evangelical Christianity, come up against a study or a fact that doesn't fit with your 'Biblical World View', just call it a lie without legitimately refuting it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Biblical Spanking?

by Chip Ingram of Living On The Edge.Org and Focus On The Family - The Biblical Approach to Spanking Editor's note: While Chip's seven steps in the process to spanking are mostly good parenting I have to question if adding spanking to the rest of it is really necessary. Aren't there better ways to punish that hitting your child? Very surprised to hear Ingram approve of spanking as he seems in the sermons I've heard to be a bit more progressive than the average Fundi-Gelical pastor. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Do Not Tolerate Disobedient Children?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - It Starts In The HomeEditor's note: Nancy seems to be saying that making your children mind is the most important thing you can do as a mother.
