Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Michael Pearl Defending His Strawman?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Spank and Save a ChildEditor's note: Michael manages to beat all his favorite dead horses in this: television, public school, liberals, global warming, environmentalists, animal rights people, gays, communists and fascists. Sometimes he manages to come across like some strange isolationist who has time-traveled back from the early 1950s to warn about the 'Red Scare'. Since he loves to claim that his critics misquote him we like to quote every single word of his misogynistic rantings and let the readers decide they are actually about. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Inanimate Objects Blamed For Sin?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Today's Quoting Quiverfull postings both bring up an interesting point in Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity, that inanimate objects can be 'sinful' or lead you to sin. It's an idea I've seen again and again, from some of my former friends at the old church insisting you cannot buy things made in China or India because they might have evil spirits attached, or believing that having a television in your home is a portal to hell. Add in Pat Robertson's yearly claims that Satanists work in the candy factories and put curses on the Halloween … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Get Certified to be Porn-Free?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - The ChallengeEditor's note: Fortunately this is the last foray into the disgusting porn minefield that exists in the mind of Mr. Pearl. I am rather surprised that he's not advocating this or that porn web browser blocker service, or pitching one of his daughters under employed husbands to install and monitor accountability software. He's got a huge ad for his 'Science of Addiction' DVD on the page. The last time I witnessed a 'Good Christian Patriarch' rant on this subject in a church I attended he'd had a huge problem with internet porn himself and he was selling his services as an accountability service/software installer. Not surprisingly no one … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Is At Your Table?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Whose Table?Editor's note: Another place that Nancy is claiming that you have to be perfect at because God is there in your home. Your table. So how does that work when your table is piled high with homeschooling supplies or is the catch all for the things you don't have time to handle? Or perhaps you never eat at your pristine table? It seems that more and more Nancy is grappling for more ways to keep women fearful and anxious over every aspect of their home or lives not being 'good enough' She really loves to come up with strange notions to fear-monger with. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Being a Stay-At-Home Mom is Unsafe Too?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Out of Sight and Out of MindEditor's note: This piece should really be titled 'Out of Her Mind' because it goes to all new fear-mongering depths. Not only is Nancy saying that working mothers have been duped  by Satan, she's trying to claim that all stay-at-home moms are in danger of being Satan's cabana girl too! How about this Nancy? We will wrap ourselves in clothing fashioned from printed Bible pages, paper the inside of the house with Bible pages and have the Bible being read piped throughout the house while staying inside and away from any possibly Satanic-addled others? Or will Satan magically squish himself under the doorjam and wreck havoc … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why So Fearful of Every Single Thing?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Last week we were talking about the Blood Moon and the other Evangelical Christian fear-mongering involving the end of the world, but since then I've been doing a great deal of thinking and observing on the subject of fear in the church. Seems like many people have many, many, MANY fears over things that those outside of the church never bother worrying about. Things like protecting their children from the 'evil' outside world, or avoiding normal things like swimming in the … [Read more...]

Huckabee and the Downfall of Western Civilization

samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.ComI watched the Republican debate on CNN last night– all three brutal hours of it. In order to ease my suffering, I joined other people who were live-tweeting the event: the sarcasm, I can assure you, was strong with us last night. At one point, though, Huckabee put on his fortune-teller garb and started threatening the American public with the Downfall of Western Civilization if we don’t elect a Republican president. In response, I tweeted this: … [Read more...]

NLQ Review: The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings

paranormalconspiracy

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOkay NLQers. I know this book has not much to do with what we talk about here at No Longer Quivering, but bear with me. It does in the sense that it was written by Timothy Dailey of the Moody Bible Institute and he works at, surprise, surprise, Josh Duggar's former employer - The Family Research Council. This is another book review for Patheos.~~~~~~~~~After reading The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings by Dr. Timothy Dailey one thing stood out to me in glaring neon - Boy, that tricky Satan is one very busy fellow with hoofs stuck in all sorts of pies. In fact, that is the main point of the entire book, anything that … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feeling Guilty – You’re Doing It All Wrong?

quotingquiverfull

by Brittany La'Vell from Whole Magazine - Are You Holding Back From God?Editor's note: So now when you confess your sins to God you have to worry that you didn't confess them right or give it all to God?? More ridiculous putting increasing qualifiers on the simplicity of Jesus in the world of scary intense fundamentalism. Why are there so many blogs out there that keep adding rules for the quiverfull or evangelical daughters to follow? Do they really not have enough real things to do so they have to keep moving the goal post to fill the time? Legalism, fear mongering, making other young women fearful and feel guilty - This writer has all the makings of a future Debi Pearl or Nancy … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Never Worry About Providing For Your Kids?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies Magazine – Is God Able to Provide For Another Baby?Editor's note: And I suppose Nancy would claim that ravens came down to feed her if she was stranded on an island. For most people they do have to find food and clothing. Plus things like heating to keep a houseful of children warm instead of dressing them in their warmest clothes and force marching them around the condemned house till they were warm, like Nancy's own daughter had to do. Following Nancy's rules for Quiverfull leads to poverty and doing without, not God miraculously providing every need. … [Read more...]
