Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Look At Her Sinning Face During Sex?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - How a Husband Can Enjoy Sex That is Grudgingly Given by His WifeEditor's note: This is possibly the worst part of the entire article, worse than insisting that husbands will cheat without sex, worse than saying 'fake it' and much worse than refusing to talk about sexual performance and likes. This ignores all consent and is pretty much straight up rape. Hounding someone into agreeing to sex against their own desires is a type of rape, or at least verges on it. BGR doesn't see it that way, he's just interested in his own selfish sexual pleasure. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – So Does This Punishment Fit The Crime?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - 7 Wyas to Discipline Your Wife (linked through Do Not Link)Editor's note: As we've seen too many times with this guy it all really boils down to sex. His having sex every single time a stiff breeze or nothing gives him a random erection. His 7th sin and punish is all about sexual denial of the husband by the wife. He believes in punishing for a wife refusing to provide sex as well as all the other ridiculous things he claims are the primary responsibility of the wife. Does anyone really consult their husband before buying clothing or even take him along?  Seems like everything on his list falls into the category of over … [Read more...]

The Bad Boy and the Angel

Image by Virginia Knowles from Watch the Shepherd

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch the Shepherd(Part of October's focus on domestic violence. Originally published December 2014)While decorating for Christmas last week, I left this angel on the table. The next morning, I found her standing with my daughter's Ken doll. Apparently she was planning for them to get married as soon as she could find someone to officiate the wedding.Something about the angel caught my eye. She was looking down, probably because she is supposed to be a tree topper smiling benevolently at the children below. However, standing right next to Ken, she seemed like she was sad and feeling shamed, like he was mad at her and she couldn't … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 Listening To Your Wife?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - I Need Her Counsel and JudgementEditor's note: This is almost enough to make you feel sorry for Michael's wife Debi Pearl, but knowing how Debi twists what happened to her and uses it to make others feel fear and guilt cancels out any sympathy points she might get for her husband admitting what an abusive jerk he has been. Sick relationship. His advice in the end might be good except for his suggestion to pretend to be humble and thoughtful. Pretend? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Is Using Accountability Software “Trusting In The Lord”?

accountability1

Remember last week when we posted an account by The Joy Filled Wife of how her husband harangued her over a piece of bread and other bad abusive behaviors he exhibited while addicted to internet pornography?  Over on the Always Learning blog - by Lori Alexander - there is a piece about how Joy Filled found out her husband was using pornography because the accountability software installed on his computer sent her an email with info about how many links he visited and how long he spent surfing these links. While NLQ isn't condoning addictions or pornography it does beg the question - Is it right or moral to monitor your significant others internet usage?
