Quoting Quiverfull: Real Men Hate Paying Taxes and Hate Feminism, Gays and the Poor?

by Jacob Bass as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Dying Breed of Real MenEditor's  note: One thing that stands out harshly in Quiverfull, Fundamentalism and Evangelicals circles is the need to constantly define what is 'manly' or 'masculine' This happens while deliberately denigrating feminists, non-heterosexuals and those poor that receive benefits from others. This piece hits all those marks. Why do you think it is that men in this movement are so obsessed with defining manhood? Could it be because they aren't that 'manly' in the first place? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Nancy Campbell Still Should Be Able To Gay-Bash?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Let's Play FairEditor's note: A Two-For-One this time. Nancy plays the martyrbating card and falsely claims Christians are being discriminated against as well as she is upset that the world's homosexual population is allowed to exist. The only possible worse thing she could have claimed is that she supports Quiverfull to outbreed Islam, which she has said in many interviews and hinted at on Friday's Al Jazeera piece on Quiverfull. She did manage to sneak in some Muslim bashing in this piece. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rub Yourself With Manure to Protest Gay Marriage?

by Kevin Swanson of Generations Radio at National Religious Liberties Conference as quoted by Right Wing Watch - If Kevin Swanson's Son Got Gay MarriedEditor's note: His poor kids! If this is how he'd act if one of them did something he disliked then you know he's bound to be behaving in miserable ways that make his children feel about as low as cow flops. Why does he always go to the most vile, animal-related, semi-bestiality insults over gay marriage? Could it be someone doth protesteth too much? The only good that could come of him behaving this is way surely someone would call for a mental health evaluation in a locked psych facility. I wonder how many people would willingly pay to … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: When is it Living Life as a Christian, and When is it Behaving Badly?

by Erin Davis from Lies Young Women Believe - When it's Hard to Be a Christian at SchoolEditor's note: This is one of the worst things endemic in Evangelical Quiverfull, this belief that everyone that does not line up with your personal version of Christianity is somehow 'suppressing your right to practice your faith.' No, your school having an LGBT Awareness Day has nothing to do with the freedom to practice your religion, it's about your homophobia, your Christian entitlement issues more than anything else. Truly, I think this cultural tone deafness, intolerance, hatred and fake martyrdom is what is killing the church in America. Practice or don't practice what you believe in, just … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Has Caused All of Society’s Ills?

by Kevin Swanson as quoted by Raw Story - Kevin Swanson Worries Day Care Will Turn Kids GayEditor's note: Kevin has blamed all sorts of things for turning children gay: Girl Scout Cookies, the Disney movie "Frozen", the children's movie "How To Train Your Dragon" and more. Now he's blaming that and many other things he doesn't agree with on putting children in daycare? I think it sounds like he should be a daycare because no real life genuine adult could possibly be as childish and tantrum-throwing toddler-like. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage is Opposing Plumbing Fittings?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - What God Hath Joined TogetherEditor's note: Now Michael is equating marriage to plumbing fittings, as in if the parts don't easily go together and make one unit then there can be no 'marriage' What do you think about his analogy? One point that his homophobic rantings brings up is who has the right to define marriage? Is it those in the union? The government? The church? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Fundamentalist Quiverfull Christians Think They Are Being Threatened In Every Interaction With The World?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.While reading through the piles of horrific questions and bad advice over at the message board for Debi Pearl's book "Preparing To Be A Help Meet" I kept seeing one of the commenters posting links again and again to her blog. She also kept insisting that all these random happenings were the world, or the devil, or evil trying to impact the Christian and change their morals in the most subtle way. Went to her blog and read this, which led to today's question. Misspellings and grammar-mangling left as the original author posted. … [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...]

No telling what exactly this week holds.First up: Members of the cult-esque Church of Wells interrupted Joel Osteen's sermon at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas yesterday.
