Quoting Quiverfull: Never Nag Husband For Any Reason?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - My Husband's Past StruggleEditor's note: Oh my, Lori is expounding on the point in her book where she says if your husband dies of a preventable illness, or suffers the logical outcome of a bad behavior you are to smile sweetly and leave him to his doom. I get the feeling yet again that if that actually played out in her own marriage she would be pointing at the corpse and yelling 'I TOLD YOU SO!'Reading through the entire post I get the vibe that it's not so much Ken's struggle as it was Lori's with the years of nagging. No one, no matter what sex or marital status, enjoys being nagged. Except maybe a few people into abuse and … [Read more...]

Go Ahead, Donald Trump Supporters, Defend Your Man

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: I think this last press conference of our president bears some scrutiny. If he falls apart and leaves office we will be stuck with the scary fundamentalist-quiverfull policies of his vice president - Mike Pence. As long as Pence is a mere heartbeat away from the highest office in the land we will be discussing politics occasionally here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be Quiverfull to Spread God’s Image?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Wouldn't This Make a Difference To This World?Editor's note: Have to say this is one of the strangest reasonings I've seen to justify militant fecundity. If all people bear the image of God then how is Christians rampantly breeding thinking they are the only ones spreading God's image? Playing a game of theology twister are we Colin? … [Read more...]

The Sin of Yoga Pants?

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeEditor's note: Written in Oct. 2016 around the time of the launch of Lori Alexander's new book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife'This morning as I was preparing upcoming posts for No Longer Quivering I ended up using a quote from always unpleasant and constantly blaming in a shameful way Lori Alexander.If you don't know who Lori is consider yourself lucky. Lori was once affiliated with Ladies Against Feminism, although it's been a while since I've seen her finger prints on anything at their site. She used to have a blog called 'Always Learning' that truthfully should have been labeled 'Always Closed Minded … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Victimhood Worst Thing Ever?

by Shalom Pearl Brand from No Greater Joy - Bossy FlossyEditor's note: This is Shalom's advice on how to keep one child from being bossy towards the next youngest sibling. The unquoted advice isn't bad, teach the kids to take turns being 'the boss' but this crap about victimhood and tattletails is just vile. These are children we're talking about and Shalom is making one type of negative childhood traits to be something almost evil. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Questioning Your Husband Destroys Your Marriage?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy – Questions a Wife Can Ask to Tear Her House DownEditor's note: We're starting with the second "7" of the supposedly 'wrong' questions to ask. I have to wonder what there is left to talk about in the Christian Patriarch Movement between husbands and wives if all these topics and possible questions are off limits? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Shallow Puddles or Deep Wells?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Shallow PuddlesEditor's note: While lately quoting from Nancy Campbell seems to be like pumping from a shallow puddle this is one of the few more lengthy posts that is not a graphic with scripture on it. Nancy seems to be saying that you have to give up the things/activities of this world and concentrate on God. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be Frugal or God Will Take Away Your Money?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Living FrugallyEditor's note: Lori's talking about how being frugal is godly, and while I think personally it's a good idea to live within your means and try to put a little aside each month it's not always that simple. Plus, in the parts of this post I skipped Ms. Alexander is making out that modern society is so extravagant that we're just one Roman orgy of consumerism from a Mount Vesuvius of debt. It's hard to make yourself save and be frugal when incentives like interest rates are so low. Does how you handle your money have any bearing on how 'Godly' you are? Money does have power, and it's been my observation that those in church with money … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Foolish Child Needs More Adulting?

by Michael and Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - What to Do with a Foolish Child?Editor's note: This starts off with a highly suspicious Pearl letter from a grandmother that sounds like it might have been dictated by Mr. Pearl for all the blaming, shaming and ugly descriptions of a child it does. This is from a transcript of a video the Pearls did. Of course Michael blames it on modern parenting and video games instead of, you know, just normal childish behavior. … [Read more...]
