Quoting Quiverfull: Children Talking at Night Might be Demonic?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Babbling in the NightEditor's note: When did children talking to themselves as they lay in their beds or in the middle of the night turn into a spiritual issue? Seems more like possibly normal child behavior instead of a problem with being molested or demon-infected. It's good that Mr. Pearl suggests a physical to make sure that there's  nothing wrong with the child, but then he makes the leap to a fearful and illogical in the rest of his reply. We start with a readers letter. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Bathrooms and Evangelical Fears?

by Cates from Mary From Martha - My Thoughts on Unmonitored Transgendered Bathroom AccessEditor's note: This is such a hot button issue right now in the religious world. Like everything they protest and fear monger over it all boils down to sex. They fear that transgendered people are sexual predators instead of just like everyone else. Do they not realize they have been already sharing restrooms with the transgendered and not be molested? This is the same argument that Michelle Duggar made in her transphobic robocalls. What do you think about this issue? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Any Other Man’s Attention Wrecks Your Marriage?

by Becky Thompson of BeckyThompson.com - Beware of Quicksand: How One Stranger's Comment Changed My Marriage ForeverEditor's note: I don't know of Ms. Thompson is officially Quiverfull but this is a prime example of toxic thinking about interacting with the opposite sex that is pervasive throughout Quiverfull, Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity. Apparently their marriages are as weak and anemic as their faith. It all starts when she calls her husband at work when he's in the middle of a BIG PROJECT! … [Read more...]

Christian Fundamentalism and Superstition

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comEditor's note: We very briefly touched on the subject of coloring books and mandalas in Quoting Quiverfull last month. Samantha takes a longer look at that same blogger's quote and parses it for the rest of us.[note: there is some swearing in today’s post]When Handsome and I first began dating, one of the hurdles we had to overcome was the different way we were raised. He had a fairly normal, healthy evangelical upbringing. His childhood was unmarred by any of the things that affected me, and when I tried to explain some of what I’d experienced he was bewildered. To him, my descriptions of my church and college were … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Better Start Fearing?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Are We Willing?Editor's note: One thing you can count on is that Nancy pushes the fear and guilt button repeatedly in most of her posts. It's all about how you cannot possibly be doing things right. Where's all the joy and happiness she keeps saying that is everywhere in Quiverfull? All I'm seeing is some world class fear mongering. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Are Not Holy Enough?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - What's Your Norm?Editor's note: One of Nancy's most constant themes is 'You are not doing it right!' She tries to invoke guilt, fear and panic among her followers by pretending no one but her is Godly enough. It is not a very emotionally healthy thing to walk around in a constant state of fear and guilt. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How to Kill Your Marriage?

by Stacy McDonald from Your Sacred Calling - How to Tear Down Your Own HouseEditor's note: Stacy has a list, and she's checking it twice, of things that kill your marriage. Granted, some of those things aren't good to do in marriage but if there is one thing life has taught me is that no two marriages are the same. What works for one is not going to necessarily work for another. There is no formula. Not even Stacy has a lock on it. Does anyone really still watch soap operas any longer? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Enough Zeal For Jesus and Everyone Goes to Hell?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Going...Going...GONEEditor's  note: More fear-mongering that you're not doing enough or doing it right enough to go to heaven. She uses the story of the ten girls with the oil lamps waiting for the bridegroom to drive home her notion that once saved is just not enough. Keep striving to be the bestest best or miss the boat. Not sure that's very Biblical. Not only do you have to be topper most uber Christian you have to make sure everyone else in your family is too. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Devil in Every Coloring Book?

by Anonymous posted at The Last Hiker - Adult Coloring Books and Mandalas: A Warning for ChristiansEditor's note:While there's no evidence that this particular blogger is Quiverfull she/he has managed to write something very common in both the world of Quiverfull and Fundamentalist/Evangelical Christian in general - fear mongering over so many common things in life. Though the years we've seen so many things decried as tools of the devil, simple things like pogs, children's trading cards, cartoons, you-name-it. Fear mongering isn't healthy and is it not the importance you give to things that determines if they are good or evil? Besides, if mandalas make you uncomfortable (and this … [Read more...]
