What ‘Gaystapo’?

OutOfTheMouthsofPatriarchs

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...]

News: Joel Osteen, Briston Palin & Steven Anderson: When Cults Attack

news

Already it's been an interesting start to the week of news in the world of Quiverfull and associated parts of Christianity. Plus it is only Monday. 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. While this might not necessarily be big news, it was surprising who the hecklers are. Church of Wells has been embroiled in controversy in the past. Remember the Arkansas woman, Catherine Grove, and her parents concern when she disappeared into the Church of Wells community and was no longer able to communicate with anyone? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: IFB Going Soft on Sodomites?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson of Tempe, Arizona's Faithful Word Baptist Church - Dr. Bob Gray Goes Soft on SodomitesEditor's note: Anderson is doubting down on his 'Death to All  Gays' stance and apparently furious that no one else much in the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church will cooperate with his views.  He's not happy that they are calling it a sin like any other. While sexual orientation isn't something you can really control, meaning it's no sin, having the IFB willing to allow anyone from the LGBT community attend their church is a big step forward for them. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Looking at Kaitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Photo Warps Childrens Minds?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson  in a recent sermon posted on Youtube and at Raw Story - Arizona Pastor Prays For God To Rip Out Caitlyn Jenner's Heart: "I Hate Him With A Perfect Hatred"Editor's note: If there is one thing we can be thankful for about the Duggarbacle (thank you Mrs. Grizzley for coining this) it's that it's kept many who would normally be frothing at the mouth about transgendered people and gay folks too occupied to chime in on the Bruce to Caitlyn Jenner transition story. That can only be a good thing. I'm not sure how little kids looking at the cover of Vanity Fair are going to have their minds perverted since they are likely to think they are looking at another pretty lady. If … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Approving of Same Sex Marriage Will Make All Christians Third Class Citizens

quotingquiverfull

by John Zmirak from Church Leaders - If the Supreme Court Imposes Same Sex Marriage, You Could Lose Your ChurchEditor's note: One of the most perfect examples of Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist extremism and fear mongering seen in quite a while. In a mere three paragraphs the author manages to push these scary buttons: Islam, President Obama, Gay Marriage, Abortion, Evil Government. See what he did? He hit all the big fears that run through fundamentalist Christianity, he invoked the straw boogie man. Evangelicals and Fundamentalists love to be afraid. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Poor Christians Being Persecuted For Intolerance?

quotingquiverfull

by R.C. Sproul Jr as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Surrendering the Culture WarEditor's note: As best as I can tell Sproul and the ladies of LAF are claiming that they are being persecuted because of gay marriage becoming accepted by many Americans. Sproul goes on to say on his site that they now have to be willing to 'love' their neighbors and martyr themselves for truth.  That's some Olympic-style martyrbating mixed with a call for hatred disguised as love there buddy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Only For One Man & One Woman?

quotingquiverfull

by Ken Ham from Answers in Genesis and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Why is Marriage Just For Two?Editor's note: It always amuses me when Ham and LAF start banging away about one man and one woman being the Biblical standard for marriage when there was incest, polygamy, marriage after rape, wives and concubines and all sorts of suspicious couplings apparently approved of by God in the Old Testament. There's no evidence in the Bible to support what they are saying is the one true marriage. I love how comedian Betty Bowers outlines all the different types of Biblical marriages. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Television is Pushing ‘Gay Agenda’?

quotingquiverfull

by Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis originally from his Blog as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Sexual Liberation Movement Failed Us. We're Not SurprisedEditor's note: Television really isn't a medium that has ever completely formed and informed the morals of this nation. Most of the time it is a mirror reflecting  whatever social issue will get the most viewers, even if the issue isn't as pressing as it is shown to be on the tiny screen. All you have to do is look at shows like 'Jerry Springer' to see the axiom of whatever grabs the ratings. ABC family showing a gay teen kiss is just doing whatever will generate the most viewers, which translates into more advertising dollars. It's … [Read more...]

All Are Equal, All Are Welcome, But Not Really

Image by Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser Here’s a recent comment I saw on Facebook:My Church stresses inclusivity. All are welcome. By grace through faith anyone can enter the kingdom of God. We will find out at death, but right now it is above my pay grade. I only accept it. I am in favor of equal treatment for all humans. I am not in favor of gay marriage. The Bible does define marriage as a man and a woman. I know at least one person from several gay couples. I have no problem. Their decision. God will separate the sheep from the goats. We are all going to be surprised who we find in Heaven or Hell. We may make a judgment, but God is the j … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Picking Your Sexuality?

quotingquiverfull

by Clint Echols - pastor First Baptist Church of Zeeland, Michigan - from Raw Story - Michigan Pastors: Being gay is an 'abomination' like being an 'axe murderer'Editor's note: why is it that the Evangelical and Fundamentalist Church cannot seem to understand that sexuality isn't necessarily a 'choice', like picking out a pair of pants or buying a particular type of yogurt. It's not that simple, no matter how much they may wish it or proclaim it. … [Read more...]
