Quoting Quiverfull: Part 7 – 7 Things Michael Pearl Thinks Are Important?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - 7 Things I SeeEditor's note: Skipping over his words on justice since it's pretty conventional and normal. It boils down to 'behave ethically'. But with judgment he's all over the map, saying that you must hate what God hates, then doing the moral limbo to say don't judge others, reversing to say judge away. Only a small part of his ideas on judging are listed below. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Offending Others For Jesus?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Stir Up the PotEditor's note: Nancy is now saying you must offend others for Jesus. You have to get out there and tell everyone else they are doing it wrong. This is something of a switch from Nancy's usual focus on militant maternity and home. Nice jab at the government too. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Godless Sluts Wear Yoga Pants?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Women Wanting to Do What is Right in Their Own EyesEditor's note: Flipping out over yoga pants? Since when did wearing comfortable clothing translate into rebellion against men and God? There are many men that walk around in utili-kilts or short shorts in this area of the world in the summer time, yet I never see hordes of women being tempted into lust over this. You know it's a day ending in 'Y' when Lori says nasty denigrating blaming things about other women. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Unmerciful Mercy?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine – God Defines a Good Person: Three Needful ThingsEditor's note: Did Debi just call out one of her daughters for being truly merciful? Judgmentalism has nothing to do with real mercy, of course the Pearls would put a nasty disclaimer on freely offering mercy. What theological Twister this type of thinking is. … [Read more...]

The Value of Shame

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comI have … unusual hair. At one point when I was a child, it was so long I could sit on it, but it wasn’t just the length that made it stand out. It was also full, thick, voluminous– or as my partner likes to call it, “robust.” I have thick, wavy hair and I have a lot of it. It was also fairly healthy, so, as long as it was, it kept its body all the way to the ends. Honestly, it didn’t even look real. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Upside Down World – LAF Now Claiming Unwed Pregnancies Not Sinful?

by Chad Ashby as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Brothers and Sisters, Unwed Pregnancy is Not a SinEditor's note: While I agree with Ashby that there should not be blaming, shaming or condemnation when someone turns up pregnant out of wedlock it's  not been my experience that places like PRCs or even the pages of LAF are very safe places. This is exactly the kind of ridiculous hypocrisy that the world looks down upon in the churches, saying one thing, doing exactly the opposite.  Even the places that treat unwed expectant mothers well tend to turn and blame them the moment the baby is born and the mother attempts to sign up for any social network benefits. You cannot have it both w … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Are Called To Judge Others?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - On Judging, Hating and Name CallingEditor's note: So apparently Nancy Campbell is not the only Quiverfull Evangelical that will admit to judging people and claiming it's Biblical and what God designed them to do. Steven L. Anderson's wife Zsuzsanna thinks the exact same way. Not surprised because it seems like the ones that are the most judgmental usually find Bible verses to support their own not so nice behaviors. Zsuzsanna also thinks it's okay to openly hate others and call them names. … [Read more...]
