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...]

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Look Beyond TodayEditor's note: As time goes on Nancy's messages on the effect of motherhood on all of history become ever more hysterical and filled with hyperbole.

Quoting Quiverfull: What is the ‘Proverbs 31 Woman’?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Let's Get The True PictureEditor's note: Nancy willfully misinterprets the Bible yet again. I don't know what version she's reading but the Proverb 31 Woman does not read like some simpering sap staying home all day homeschooling her kids and having no opinions or creative ways to add to the family finances. And "Watchwoman"? That is a new one on me. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Tolerance of Different Others so Threatening?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays.

Quoting Quiverfull: If Medical Care Is Too Cheap People Will Go For Ridiculous Things?

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. He's actually advocating making health care harder to get and more expensive. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Is At Your Table?

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?

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...]
