Quoting Quiverfull: Part 13 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: Here comes the puke-worthy. Michael explains why penises rule and vaginas drool. (please excuse my sarcasm and flipness -  Michael brings it out in me)  Shorter Michael: Boys will be boys because penis and bible. Mothers should never try to control boys. Fathers only. Why does everything this man writes scream out how insecure he is in his masculinity? This makes me want to run away to shoot guns in my friend's back woods, smoke a cigar and hoist a few beers to wash away the gender specific pile of you-know-what. … [Read more...]

Survivor Testimonials & Prayer For Hope

Christianpatriarchalwatchlistforparents

by Emily cross posted from her site - Christian Patriarchal Watch List For  Parents What do these ideas look like in real life? It varies, but not something I want for my daughter in any shade of gray, you? "I guess when you are the center of your family (prophet, king, and priest) where all the women serve you (wife and unmarried daughters), it must go to your head. On top of that add homeschooling expert, president of a company/ministry, and leader in a church, sought after speaker, author, and not to mention one's own sin nature, and what do you have?" http://surphside.blogspot.com/2013/11/questions-and-thoughts-about-vision.html … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Training Your Wife?

quotingquiverfull

by Heath Stoner from The Trailer Club - The Gentlemen's Guide To Training Your WifeEditor's note: Not sure that The Trailer Club is necessarily 'Quiverfull' but they are certainly complementarian and patriarchal. While these methods of training are still better than anything proposed by Michael Pearl it's still a harmful unhealthy idea to think that your spouse needs to be 'trained' in the first place. Some of these ideas are uglier than three day old fried chicken. … [Read more...]

The Man as “Prophet, Priest and King” of Wife and Children

kristenrosser

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsThe teaching that a man is the "prophet, priest and king" of his home isn't new.  I've certainly heard it before.  In fact, the fundamentalist website National Center for Family-Integrated Churches recently reprinted a piece written in the 1600s by a Puritan named William Gurnall.  Here's a sample: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Make Cookies & Don’t Stress Out Your Husband By Making Him Do Things

quotingquiverfull

by Todd & Jessica Smartt from Smartter Each Day - 10 Things A Man Needs To Be HappyEditor's note: On the surface this sounds sort of sweet and charming, but it's the essence of what a patriarchal marriage looks like. Man works and uses his free time to go fishing and gets enough alone time not to be stressed out by the kids while the little woman makes sure there are meals, cookies, a clean house and kids trained enough not to stress poor poor Daddy out. This is what Christian Complementarianism looks like. … [Read more...]

Am I Am Prophet, Priest or King?

Christianpatriarchalwatchlistforparents

by Emily from Christian Patriarchal Watch List For Parents as quoted from Facebook“Is there a test that will tell me if I’m more of a prophet, a priest, or a king?”This is a quote from a young male church planter. He goes on,"I’ve gotten this question a lot lately, and to my knowledge, no such assessment exists.[emphasis added] Most leaders, however, will recognize themselves quite readily in one of the three general profiles..." http://wenatcheethehatchet.blogspot.com/…/prophet-priest-an… … [Read more...]

A Close Look at the Complementarian Argument

Image from Wordgazer's Words

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's Words Complementarianism and the Local Church is an article by Jonathan Leeman on the 9 Marks website, which is a conservative evangelical site dedicated to "help[ing] pastors, future pastors, and church members see what a biblical church looks like, and to take practical steps for becoming one."  The site has published a series of articles on male headship, and the arguments are pretty much the same ones my various blog posts have rebutted though the last several years.  But this one, which seems to be an introduction to its male headship series, was brought to my attention on another blog, and I'd like to take a closer look at what i … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Do It For The Menfolks?

adventurous

by Anna Sophia Botkin of Visionary Daughters and reposted at Ladies Against Feminism - What is Okay For a Girl to Do? from their new book/audio message 'Adventurous Femininity'As women we see our lives in terms of helping men with the challenges, quests, wars, and adventures. We need to be very careful that we don’t pursue a brand of femininity that is so obsessed with it’s own girliness, that it can’t get it’s hands dirty with real dominion.  Feminism, there is a lot more to that than women who dress up in pinstriped power suits and do man’s work. Essentially feminism is the desire to be autonomous. It’s the desire to be independent from a man and out from under his authority and this … [Read more...]

 by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsThis Fourth of July, I have a confession to make.I used to wake up every Independence Day morning with "God Bless America" on my lips.  I used to feel a thrill of excitement and reverence when I faced the flag and pledged allegiance, when I put my hand over my heart and sang along with The Star-Spangled Banner.I still say the Pledge.  I still put my hand over my heart, and I still sing the National Anthem. I still love America. … [Read more...]
