Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: Women Are All Lazy Gossips?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Women Have a Tendency to be Lazy and GossipEditor's note: I had another post all lined up for this morning and then I saw this post by Lori Alexander, whose blog really should be renamed 'Always Judging You in the Most Nasty Possible Fashion'. I read the title and thought, 'WHAT?!?' The most lazy and gossipy women I've ever encountered were all stay at home women heavily involved running their local fundamentalist church. It's the opposite to what she's saying. Women who know their worth, who are busy with fulfilling tasks, be they home and children, volunteer positions or careers, don't have the time to waste worrying about what others think, or … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Koran and the Bible Teach the Same Gender Roles?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles -Biblical Gender Roles Vs Quranic Gender RolesEditor's note: This is from the top most piece at Larry's site if you want to read it in it's entirety. To condense it down Larry spends many paragraphs trying to prove that the Quran is a false off shoot of the Bible, that Mohammad was wrong and every other horrible conclusion that Good Christian Patriarchs love to trot out about Islam and Muslims before saying that they did get the idea of gender roles 100% right. That's some mighty theological Twister playing there on Larry's behalf. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Boys Equal Messy House?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Mother's BoysEditor's note: Welcome to another episode of 'Cognitive Dissonance with Nancy Campbell'. Remember all that recent lecturing and hectoring by Nancy that you must keep your house immaculate while smiling and controlling your thoughts? Apparently that does not apply in her world if you have a pile of boys to raise. She just cannot make up her mind what is and isn't the most important. Plus generalizations about the sexes don't help anyone. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adrenaline Rush Staves Off Sexual Impurity?

by Shalom Pearl Brand of No Greater Joy - Adrenaline RushEditor's note: While encouraging your children to find their passion and guiding them through the hormonal waters of adolescence is a responsible thing most parents will do, it's not going to prevent everyone from impure thoughts and actions. People are all individuals, with differing needs, triggers and paths. Quiverfull loves to reduce complex issues down to simple formulas. Too bad that does not usually work out well for anyone. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Better Be Bowing and Scraping?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Appreciating Your SpouseEditor's note: To be completely fair here Anderson did mention one short paragraph about how a husband should be appreciative over a wife. But then he spent the next three paragraphs telling a wife how she is to esteem her husband. Seems a bit lopsided doesn't it. Are we really expected to make a fuss over a man doing something that is his responsibility in the first place? The sexism is rampant. Having a penis does not exempt you from doing your share of running the household and you shouldn't have to be petted and thanked every single time you manage to load the dishwasher! Ladies, when your husband lands … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Role of Women?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Duties of a Pastor's WifeEditor's note: Alright, so I know I've featured Anderson a great deal in the recent past, but he's been a fount of weird since the shootings in Orlando. His pulpit poundings from his blog lately read more like him answering critical church members more than anything else. Here he defends what his wife's role should be in the church. What do you think is really going on at Faithful Word behind the scenes? Is it starting to rattle apart? Also, this is the first time I've ever seen anyone suggest that the pastor's wife clean the church or design the bulletin. That's always been the responsibility of others … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Oppressive Patriarchy or Good Submission?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Are Women Who Want to Submit to and Serve Their Husbands Mentally Ill? (not directly linking to this post)Editor's note: Normal love makes you want to submit to your man? Somehow I don't think that's at all how it works. But Larry doesn't seem to care, he just wants to be worshiped, him and his penis, and he's not able to achieve high enough status on his own merits, he has to put down women to raise himself. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How to Raise ‘Cowardly’ Boys?

by Nicole Cook of Nancy Campbell's Above Rubies - Raising Godly Sons in an Ungodly WorldEditor's note: Interesting this woman says this considering so many men in the world of quiverfull seem to be weak, whiny guys that seem to think everything in the outside world threatens their masculinity. I guess if you're not very sure of your own masculine to begin with you will see threats everywhere, even in being as well-groomed as many men they define as 'metro-sexual'. She sounds as though she's equating cowardliness with homosexuality. … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated: Part 2 Chapter 9

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quotes from the book in blue text.In addition to questionable dialogue, this chapter feels like the Botkin Sisters were trying to expand the book from where all the topics were naturally spent to some unspecified length.In other words, this chapter is pretty much a repeat of Chapters 6 + 7.  There is one new topic - and it pissed me off - but the Botkin Sisters view on female intelligence wasn't an actual surprise. … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated – The Boys Interlude #1

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDirect quotes from the book are in blueLike "Preparing to Be a Helpmeet" by Debi Pearl, "It's Not That Complicated" includes random side notes from young men.  Honestly, I have no idea why these are included except to pad the length of the book.  There are 14 guys who are quoted.  Five of them are the Botkin Brothers.  Of the five Botkin Brothers, only Ben uses his actual name.  Rather than try to fit the boy quotes into the chapters, I'm going to insert chunks of them every so often. … [Read more...]
