Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce For Christians Ever Because It Causes God’s Judgment?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Beautiful Attitude ContinuedEditor's note: Colin seems to think that every single thing that doesn't line up with his personal interpretation of the Bible is going to cause God to thrash and trash the earth and all it's inhabitants rather soon. Somehow I get the feeling that he really wants that final judgment to happen as soon as possible. There is so much in the world of Quiverfull theology that wants others judged and throws shade on anything or anyone not part of the select group. What a way to live! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Don’t Backstab in Front of the Children, Just do it in Your Books?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Go, and Sneer No MoreEditor's note: In this final piece from the Sneerer In Chief Debi Pearl she busts out one of her patented stories that sounds like she's invented the story out of thing air. Nice touch adding in the fear to mothers that if they criticize anyone then the sin will be carried on by their children. This is what Debi does, invents something to fear, adds in a made up story to support her claims and then ends it by turning the responsibility and guilt onto the mother.  That's some good Christian love there.. (yes, yes, I know I'm sneering) … [Read more...]

Part One – The Paradox of Freedom

CC Image from Living Liminal

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalMany years ago I found myself, completely against my will, dealing with the loss of my marriage. I'd spent 7 years married to a man who lied and deceived seemingly without conscience, who was a master of emotional manipulation, and who acted as if the world revolved around him alone. While his regular outbursts of anger only occasionally resulted in physical abuse, it almost always ended with him breaking things - usually my things! … [Read more...]

News: Highest Divorce Rates?

denom_divorce

by Christine Wicker at Adherents.com - Dumbfounded by Divorce A study saying that born-again Christians divorce more often than non-Christians has raised eyebrows, sowed confusion, even brought on a little holy anger. So much, in fact, that the study's author, evangelical George Barna, put out a special letter to "our partners in ministry" trying to calm their fury and let his fellow believers know that he was standing by his stats no matter how distasteful they might be. … [Read more...]
