Quoting Quiverfull: It is a Sin For Men and Women to be Friends?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Is Marriage Exclusive or Open?Editor's note: What is it about Evangelical Quiverfull that just assumes if you are friends with someone of the opposite sex that there will be infidelity? That's just the most backwards belief of all time. Out here in the real world you can be friends with anyone you want without the first thought being that you're going to have sex with them the first time you are alone. And why isn't Nancy saying the same thing about female/female or male/male friendships? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Are You Afraid of Your Husband?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Wives Are Commanded to Fear Their HusbandsEditor's note: There's not much here or in the original post that speaks to 'fearing' your husband. Everyone fears something, usually things like nuclear war, or perhaps losing a relationship or financial problems. Husbands? Not so much. Fear and love should not go hand in hand no matter what Bible commentary Lori consults.And for that matter Lori loves to claim that all marriages where the husband and wife do not practice the same version of Christianity as her are filled with discord and fighting. Not true. Most people strive mightily to have peace and harmony in their homes. It's not just a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homosexual Juggernaut and Christian Bestiality?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - The Church's Witness on Sexuality: Too Cute by HalfEditor's note: Second half of the word salad that is merely a revealing of what Tim Bayly fears the most - not being thought of as masculine, combined with fear and hatred of gays.

Go Ahead, Donald Trump Supporters, Defend Your Man

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: I think this last press conference of our president bears some scrutiny. If he falls apart and leaves office we will be stuck with the scary fundamentalist-quiverfull policies of his vice president - Mike Pence. As long as Pence is a mere heartbeat away from the highest office in the land we will be discussing politics occasionally here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sinful Television?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Channel 23Editor's note: One of the dumbest attempts at parody and derision attempted by Pearl yet.

There's this wonderful button on the television that he clearly does not understand he has the power to push..... and turn the television off. … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLeave it to Fundamentalist Franklin Graham to use several of the recent celebrity deaths as evangelistic props for warning sinners of the certainty of death and eternal torture in hell by God if they fail to make a decision for Christ. You might be the nicest person in the world, but without Jesus you are headed for hell when you die. But, you can be a pussy-grabbing, misogynistic billionaire and still make it to heaven IF you pray the sinner’s prayer and really, really, really mean it. (Graham will be one of five clergymen at Donald Trump’s coronation.)Since Graham does not mention whether any of the … [Read more...]

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Questions a Wife Can Ask to Tear Her House DownEditor's note: More from the don't ever even slightly threaten your weak wimpy Christian husband's threadbare masculinity.
