quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles at Biblical Gender Roles.com - How the Social Safety Net Encourages DivorceEditor's note: There's just so much bad here that it is going to take days to unpack. But this little bit about people frivolously going to the doctor is so ridiculous! Most people cannot just take off work to go to the doctor for every sniffle or cut.

Quoting Quiverfull: God Is At Your Table?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Whose Table?Editor's note: Another place that Nancy is claiming that you have to be perfect at because God is there in your home. Your table. So how does that work when your table is piled high with homeschooling supplies or is the catch all for the things you don't have time to handle? Or perhaps you never eat at your pristine table? It seems that more and more Nancy is grappling for more ways to keep women fearful and anxious over every aspect of their home or lives not being 'good enough' She really loves to come up with strange notions to fear-monger with. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Speaking Plain Words Shows Love For Enemies?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Love, Acceptance, and PragmatismEditor's note: This is one of the most frightening things about the Quiverfull movement, the attempt to seize and redefine language in order to force ones religious and political beliefs on another group of people, to legislate morality. There's a great deal in the unquoted parts about banning abortion, doing away with same sex unions and forcing young marriage on people that we'll not quote here. But the semantics of seizing the language that we use to discuss those things is a terrifying thing and how fundamentalism forces their views on others legally. No matter what Von says that is not love. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Get In A Rut In Your Marriage?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Outdo One AnotherEditor's note: Wow, that's some advice. Not necessarily bad advice, but advice from Nancy's generation that has nothing to do with living as a committed, submitted Quiverfull wife. The thing is with this advice is it can rebound in two bad ways, 1 - if you really don't 'feel' the feelings of overwhelming love towards your spouse he's going on pick up on the fact that you're doing this out of rout obedience and not genuine affection Let's be real here, in a marriage there are going to be those days when you don't feel that over the top love sensation you felt in the beginning, there are seasons and there's nothing wrong with that. … [Read more...]

Not Exactly Christ’s Christianity

Screen shot of IBLP website

by S.J. Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoThe Christianity which is practiced by far too many members of the evangelical right is almost unrecognizable to what ‘evangelical’ churches practiced up until about 1978.  That was close to the cut-off point, when things began to change.  One of the very real problems is that I’m like the average Christian in this country.  I was living in a fool’s paradise.  Sure, I knew that things were getting a little flaky, but like everyone else, just chalked it up to things getting a little flaky.  Like just about everyone else, I never realized there was a very overt agenda, a planned take-over of the country, using a heretical version … [Read more...]

The Church’s Obsession With ‘Leadership’

livingliminal

by Living Liminal from her blog Living LiminalAll the bullying and abuse I experienced in my ex-church revolved around the question of leadership and hierarchy. Who was in control. Who was 'over' whom. Who was top dog.Eventually, it became evident that the board of reference had covertly told elder J that he should be in top position and he was more than happy to agree with that. Of course, all this was backed up by God himself!But apparently God changed his mind (but only after people's lives had already been torn apart by this issue) and J ended up leaving to start his own 'church', presumably so he could really be the leader. … [Read more...]
