Quoting Quiverfull: Your Mothering Effects Eternity!?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Six Generations!Editor's note: It's always interesting how Nancy always manages to extrapolate out every silly thing you do as having eternal consequences and add 'must dos' to women's roles as wives and mothers. While mothering does have long term effects, both good and bad, I'm not sure I buy her you are mothering for eternity talk here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hey, She Cursed Her Own Family?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - The Church Does Not Replace IsraelEditor's note: Not sharing this story so we can argue over the significance of Israel but to illustrate a point about No Greater Joy. There is definitely no 'Joy' at No Greater Joy but there is a lot of shaming and blaming of others under the guise of supposedly teaching others. If you have to put down others to support yourself there's something fundamentally flawed in your faith. This is one of the clearest illustrations I've seen of Fundamentalist Christians who put others down to build themselves up. And they wonder why numbers of Christians are declining across this nation. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God is Micromanaging Your House?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - By The SpiritEditor's note: Sounds like Nancy is running out of things to claim that God wants to control. Now she's claiming He is even wanting to decide how you store your pots and pans and where you put the spice rack. Sounds like a petty and controlling God with nothing better to do, not worth worshiping and bowing down too. 1 Condiments 3:4 "Thou shall not store the pans under the sink, and must line up your can labels!" only exists in the recesses of Nancy's mind. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 32 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 5Editor's note: Whew! Last piece. When I started posting this series I had no idea it was so long and that Michael was hawking a book to go with this series written back in 2006. In this final bit Michael tells male parents that they likely having fully repented yet and that he can see right through them. Blaming and shaming is Mr. Pearl's real focus in this series of articles, not helping avoid kids leaving their parent's worldview. He just wants to shame. … [Read more...]

What ‘Gaystapo’?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI never know exactly what awaits me every morning when I take a stroll through the latest articles and blogs on the type of extremist Christianity that fills Quiverfull. Today I was greeted with the bizarre thoughts of one Mark Judge at Real Clear Religion. Mark has one of the stranger reactions to the recent Supreme Court decision on marriage equality. He decided it means that the gay community has started to purposely inflict emotional abuse on Christians at large.Say what? Emotional abuse, that thing that goes hand in hand with the spiritual abuse many of us here at No Longer Quivering suffered at the hands of those same 'Good Christians'(tm)? If they were … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Stressing You Selfish Woman?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Do You Need Refreshing?Editor's note: So let me get this straight: you're stressed out and need refreshing so Nancy says you have to yoke yourself to Jesus, even though this doesn't take away or ease whatever it is that's stressing you out?
