NLQ Question of the Week – Why a Gay Devil Under Every Bush?

This is a series we run every Thursday. The questions are things that people who may not know much about the Quiverfull movement or even Fundamentalist or Evangelical Christianity ask about the lifestyle. Examining some of the questions involving Quiverfull theology and life can only shine a light on the toxic nature of this lifestyle choice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Tim Bayly Hates ‘Lumberjack Dykes’?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Effeminacy: When the Church Denies a Sin is a SinEditor's note: Bayly is back on his favorite vile hobby horse - masculinity and effeminacy. Yet he starts with 'Lumberjack dykes'. Quoting Doug Wilson and doubling down on his nasty words that no pastor should be lobbing about. He has a photo of Lord Byron and Dennis Rodman to illustrate his point. I dare him to tell Rodman to his face that he's 'girly'. Sad, sick and illustrative of his own issues more than anyone elses. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hipster Clothing Threatens Pastor Tim Bayly’s Masculinity?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - The Emperor Has Hip ClothesEditor's note: For a guy who claims to be uber masculine pastor Bayly seems to spend a disgracefully large amount of time judging others levels of masculinity. Why would that be?Also, hair is coiffed, scarves are not. Scarves are coiled. Coiffing can only happen to hair, careful styling, or donning a headdress.Saint Benedict never called out random people out for being effeminate either. What he did call out was soft living, as there was a hatred of the body and self-punishment among the monks of that time. Softness and soft bedding, being concerned with soft living was described as 'effeminate' in that time, and those … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Spiritual Eunuchs?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Born That Way Ministries ExposedEditor's note: The entire notion that some IFB pastors are starting to accept the idea that sexuality is hardwired within us by birth is at least a little encouraging. But then Anderson decides the best reaction to this shift is to use his personal blog to doxx all the pastors lining up with that particular theological shift.Here's the ministry he's upset with - Born That Way Ministries … [Read more...]

Franklin Graham Uses Celebrity Deaths to Threaten Sinners With Hell

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLeave it to Fundamentalist Franklin Graham to use several of the recent celebrity deaths as evangelistic props for warning sinners of the certainty of death and eternal torture in hell by God if they fail to make a decision for Christ. You might be the nicest person in the world, but without Jesus you are headed for hell when you die. But, you can be a pussy-grabbing, misogynistic billionaire and still make it to heaven IF you pray the sinner’s prayer and really, really, really mean it. (Graham will be one of five clergymen at Donald Trump’s coronation.)Since Graham does not mention whether any of the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Miss an Opportunity to Gay-Bash?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - "Gay Icon" George Michael Dies...Editor's note: I was wondering on Christmas night how long it would take the usual homophobic pastors of Quiverfull to somehow make the tragic passing of George Michael into all about their religion. Didn't take long at all. No Mr. Bayly, the essence of manhood is not responsibility! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homophobia or Not?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - We are Already in MalawiEditor's note: Anderson is trying to claim because one of his followers got into Malawi and did some 'Soul Winning' as proof he's not banned in Malawi. Too bad he does not seem to understand that he's banned and this is a fact. Quoting this piece because he keeps saying bad things about the gays and then turns out and tries to say his ministry is not about homophobia. Such incredibly strong cognitive dissonance! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Self Love Rings Lead to all Sorts of Perversions?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Human Flourishing: Self-Love Rings...Editor's note: Wow, I never thought I'd see the day when someone accused John Piper of Desiring God of being 'gay-friendly' when it's pretty clear he's not. Seems to me like Bayly is extrapolating out things from the ring buying that are a stretch at best. Tim Bayly might just be the male Lori Alexander of fundytown. Has anyone here bought themselves a nice ring because it's something you feel like you earned or wanted just for you? I think many have, and will continue to do so without it leading to the rack and ruin Bayly is claiming. I did, and no, I didn't throw my husband out of the door for a set of virtual reality … [Read more...]

Pastor Steven Anderson Being Deported From Botswana!

Way to make friends and influence people Pastor Anderson!Steven Anderson went ahead with his plan to visit Botswana on a 'Soul Winning' trip and the main thing that happened is that he physically assaulted a Botswanian man by the name of Tony Benn, all the while ranting and accusing him of being 'gay', which he was not. Anderson apparently kept shouting that the man had an 'AIDS filled mouth'. … [Read more...]

News: Steven Anderson Banned From UK and South Africa

Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church of Tempe, Arizona has been extremely quiet on his blog the last week or so, with the exception of taking to it to bash the remarkable Bishop Desmond Tutu for not condemning homosexuality and to fling hateful words at South Africa's Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba. … [Read more...]
