Quoting Quiverfull: Sorry I’m Not Perfect For My Future Husband?

quotingquiverfull

by savabrown14 from the blog Loved By I Am - Dear (Possible) Future HusbandEditor's note: This is one of the hateful things about Fundamentalist/Evangelical Quiverfull, the 'not good enough' syndrome while being pushed to be perfect. Where's the grace in this or in being allowed to be human, warts and all. Nice slut shaming in there too over supposed immodesty by girls your future husband might encounter in day to day life. A man looking at a beautiful woman is not a sin any more than the writing have had crushes on various men or having emotions. So many things here going on at once. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Poisonous Christian Purity Culture Even In Africa?

quotingquiverfull

by DE FC Jonnpedro from Facebook as quoted by Vyckie GarrisonEditor's note: Make sure you look at the photo accompanying this post at Facebook. It's set so that it cannot be copied and shared here and it's a representation of slut shaming in the church. He compares a woman's unseen parts to a mine filled with gold and gems, not realizing that mines can collapse, can kill people and are deadly places to be, not always some wonderment filled with treasures untold like in Disney's movie "Aladdin" … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So What’s The Different Again Between Christian And Muslim Men?

quotingquiverfull

by Bojidar Marinov as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism and cross posted from his blog Navigating History - Civilization & Self ControlEditor's note: In light of all the recent pearl clutching in the world of Evangelical Christianity about modesty and yoga pants Marinov's assertions about how self controlled Evangelical Christian men are seems like a ridiculous lie! How many times in our old lives in Fundigelicalism and Quiverfull were we told to never defraud a man by dressing immodestly? No difference at all from what Marinov is claiming about Islamic men. Bonus points for historical revision, racism and Islamaphobia as well.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Did The Duggar Modesty-Scale Change?

Old school Duggars with no makeup and lots of cloth on.

If memory serves me correctly in the early days of the Duggar family television specials makeup was distinctly frowned up, but if the US Weekly article is anything to go by that has changed as well as many other things. Remember when Michelle and all the girls wore those loose sack-like jumpers with huge 'countenance-enhancing' collars? But then again, many Evangelical women I knew (including myself) once dressed like that. It was the uniform of the Good Christian Woman(tm) at one time.Below is a list of Duggar rules on dress from US Weekly Magazine Issue 1025 October 6, 2014 – The Duggars Rules of Romance … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Modesty Was ‘God’s Idea’?

immodest

by Tony Reinke in John Piper's blog Desiring God - Is Feminine Modesty About Sex?Men and women serve each other here. A godly Christian man refuses to treat women as objects of lust, humanizes them, and shows respect to his sisters in Christ as fellow heirs (Romans 8:17). A Christian woman, modestly dressed, serves her brothers in Christ, honors her husband (1 Peter 3:1–6), and removes an unnecessary obstruction from her testimony of personal godliness in society and the church (1 Timothy 2:8–15). Whether or not men are also called to a standard of modesty in fashion is a relatively new conversation in the church, and one we need to think through together in the future. But what we do kn … [Read more...]
