Purging My Taliban Ways

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding FundamentalI was strolling down the aisles at Sam’s Wholesale Club one day about a year or so after leaving the church, and in the book aisle I noticed a book written by a woman from Afghanistan. It was obvious from the cover that she was a Muslim living under Taliban rule. I picked it up and began looking it over as I do with any book that piques my curiosity. I turned it over to read the back cover and was instantly captivated by what I saw. There written, was a list of rules imposed and strictly enforced on women under Taliban rule. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Keeping Your Wandering Feet (and Vagina) Home?

If you Google Image the words "Harlot Feet" most of what you end up with are pictures of fancy handknit socks!

by Vaughn Ohlman of True Love Doesn't Wait - Wandering FeetWe haven't visited Mr. Ohlman in quite some time, but he seems to be under the mistaken impression that one of the recent QQ pieces where we were quoting Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies as well as other women was something he posted.Nope, the last time we posted anything by Vaughn was way back in February, mere days after St. Valentines Day - Being A Stay At Home Mom Stops Affairs. Here's a hint, it doesn't! That was the only time Matthew Henry has come up on NLQ. Von, adjust your calender or stop doing whatever it is that is robbing you of your sense of time/date/reality.In that piece we were discussing Titus 2 and … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Patriarchy Is Not A Dirty Word?

manwoman

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Tired of Patriarchy's Bad RapEdited to add: Kelly Crawford has pulled down the post off her blog but R.L. Stollar over at Homeschoolers Anonymous has a PDF file of Kelly's original post. So what is Kelly afraid of? Patriarchy is not “man-control”, it’s God control. And you see, that’s just the problem everybody has with it. Frankly, in this 21st century “me world”, we don’t want anyone in control. Even us Christians. So we take God’s Word and not only reject it, but we make up our own deviated definitions about it and then call those who still hold to its simple truth “cult members.” … [Read more...]

by R.C. Sproul Jr. posted at Ladies Against Feminism and Highlands Ministries - Homeschooling and the Problem of Adam and Eve LAF Editor’s Note: In spite of the fact that this is written to men, this is a good read for women. Helpful for understanding our tendencies and what to do about it.Eve’s ProblemHusbands, we have a problem, and it has existed from the fall. In the Garden of Eden, right after Adam and Eve sinned, God pronounced judgment. To Eve He said, among other things, “Your desire will be for your husband, And he will rule over you” (Genesis 3:16, NASB). … [Read more...]

Fascinating Womanhood Review: The Protector

protector

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons This chapter is devoted to the second “masculine need”: “a man needs to function, feel needed, and excel women as a protector.” A man being a protector is probably one of the more foundational concepts about men in conservative religious environments– it is most especially true where patriarchy and complementarianism are fiercely held. It appears in a variety of ways, some more subtle than others. … [Read more...]

Fascinating Womanhood Review: Always Obey

obey

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons Helen closes out her chapter on “The Leader” by reiterating many of her earlier points in stronger language, but she also takes the opportunity to preemptively combat what she thinks may be some common objections, or situations readers could describe that would make her teachings difficult– or impossible. To do this, she begins with a longer discussion of what she means when she tells women to obey their husbands: … [Read more...]
