Quoting Quiverfull: Worship Your Husband?

by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles - Should a Christian Wife Worship Her Husband?Editor's note: Part of me feels almost sorry for Larry because his constant harping on how wives are supposed to be ultra-submissive to their husbands and all his focus on worship and sex sounds more like bitter self justifications or perhaps the stuff of fantasies instead of his daily reality. Another case of a weak wimpy manboy perhaps instead of real advice from a patriarch? Respecting someone is vastly different than worshiping them. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Michael Pearl Thinks Political Correctness Is Killing Child Abuse Disguised As Dicipline?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine - Two-Front War on ChristiansEditor's note: Skipped large parts of this article because it's Michael Pearl attacking Hillary Clinton, the Supreme Court and marriage equality mixed with quoting all the self-professed Evangelical Republican presidential candidates to prove Pearl's points. Focusing on the part where Michael bemoans that people consider corporal punishment as a parenting tactic that has gone the way of the dinosaurs. Funny how he tries to link the falling out of favor of his book with a liberal agenda and the loss of Biblical standards nationwide. … [Read more...]

Let’s Out the Poisonous Ideas/Scriptures in the Quiverfull & Patriarchal Movements?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerGreetings! I am currently on the road, driving down in the deep south to see relatives and being exposed to a capacious amount of ridiculously bad ideas Fundamentalist Christianity has to offer. This morning I was telling Vyckie Garrison of driving through rural Mississippi, hitting search on my car radio and coming up with ten different Christian radio stations in a row. I was stuck listening to them for a few hours and was struck by some of the ideas put forward and flouted as 'The Truth' that are just dangerous to a person. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting Your Courting Daughter in a Pornified (not real word!) World

by RVD from the blog The Christian Pundit - Of Course Courtship is Fundamentally FlawedWonder if the admin at The Christian Pundit realizes that the definition of 'Pundit' is "an expert in a particular subject or field who is frequently called on to give opinions about it to the public." Experts usually do not make up words or misspell others. Who exactly is calling on these 'experts'for their opinions? The name of the site is deceptive. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Divinely Defined Gender Roles?

by Nathaniel Darnell of Persevero News - Women Against Feminism“A man has no right to define for himself what his wife will do to please him. He must adopt Christ’s ideas, as revealed in Scripture, for what a wife must do to be a helpmeet to a husband and for what he must do to love her. Ephesians 5 tells us that this entails him giving up his life for her as Christ does for His Bride the Church. This involves a tremendous amount of unselfishness. It is a spending and being spent for her. What the authority of a man over his wife amounts to is that he is ultimately responsible for what goes wrong in his family. In the end of the analysis, no matter what the failures of his wife, he takes … [Read more...]
