Quoting Quiverfull: Raped? Don’t Stay Angry at Your Rapist Overnight?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - The Manna of AngerEditor's note: A little good does not leaven or dismiss the toxic in Wilson's continuing advice to this supposedly fictional abused young girl. Be angry, acknowledge your anger but don't keep being angry is no answer! While volunteering and helping others can help you in recovery the most critical helpful bit that Wilson and others miss is ongoing counseling from a licensed mental health professional. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Incest Everywhere in Church?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - Women, Incest and the InternetEditor's note: Interesting that incest, pornography and perversions seem to occur much more frequently inside of the Quiverfull churches than anywhere outside of a town red light district. Why is it that Bayly, Doug Wilson, Steven Anderson and Kevin Swanson along with assorted others seem to be so focused on sexual sins that very few outside of their realms have even heard of, much less practiced? It's scary and telling. Out of the mouth comes the abundance of the heart.There's a horrifying assertion unquoted earlier in this bit about not allowing fathers and daughters to shower together. Is this even a thing anywhere? Even … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Talking to Your Children About Incest and Bestiality?

by Rebekah Pearl Anast from No Greater Joy Magazine - And the Truth Shall Make Them FreeEditor's note: It's that time of the year, one of the six times a year that NJG publishes their magazine. Last time it was all calendar pages, this time it's mostly recycled stories with new bit cobbled on. This one comes from the posting a few years back where Rebekah told of finding an open pornographic magazine by the side of the road and claiming someone in their part of Tennessee had stapled magazine centerfolds to the trees. Same story exactly but this time at the end there's a long list of subjects that are not child appropriate that the Pearls are saying you must regularly discuss with your … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Simple Michael: He's telling parents not to be hypocrites, to practice what they preach on a daily basis, which is, after all, pretty good advice for any parent. There is nothing that will turn a teenager against his or her parents more than someone that says one thing and does completely contradictory actions to what they've said. But this first paragraph about kids who don't know anything about sex going on to commit incest reminds me of a certain exposed scandal in the world of Quiverfull. Is this what happened? Michael seems to know too much about this, which makes me wonder if it happened in his family too. Didn't Jim … [Read more...]
