Quoting Quiverfull: Concubines, Slaves and Polygamy – God Approved Ways?

by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles - Did the Bible Allow Men to Have Sex Slaves (not linking to the post because the website Do Not Link is still down)Editor's note: Anyone that has been reading BGR for awhile could tell Larry was going in a direction that would eventually land at approval of slavery and polygamy.

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Christian Economic Abuse Is A-Okay With Jesus?

by Biblical Gender Roles from his blog Biblical Gender Roles - Can a Christian husband deny his wife equal access to his income?Editor's note: Not if he wants to have consensual sex with her ever again.This guy seems to be hell bound and determined to do all the things that would clearly lead his wife to not be in the mood for sexy fun times. This is what Economic Abuse can look like, no matter what your views on equality in marriage are. I'm guessing he thinks that the husband automatically gets access to the woman's wages even as he's controlling access to finances for the wife.This is also why so many Christian women struggle when their husbands die with the issue of making … [Read more...]

by Robert Murray M'Cheyne as quoted by Stephanus Blignaut at Go Tell My People - Governing Your FamilyEditor's note: Granted, this was written during M'Cheyne's life time, the early 1800s, but it seems to be that same train of thought that many in Evangelical Christianity and Quiverfull still cling to, that an 'unsaved' father and man has no care or love for their family, which is a complete lie. Religious thought that is a falsehood does no one any good.  … [Read more...]

When I Rejected Dominionism

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground and Homeschoolers AnonymousBy now most people have probably heard of the dominionism in homeschooling and conservative evangelical circles — the idea that homeschoolers will change the world by their involvement in absolutely everything, from science to the high arts to politics. Oddly even after I rejected patriarchalism (and courtship and purity), I still saw myself as a huge warrior and heroine. I’ll tell you what changed that for me. But first thought I’ll give you a couple quotes of this in homeschool circles. … [Read more...]
