Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Women Should Not March?

by Andrea Schwartz as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism and originally posted at The Kingdom Driven Family - Why Did They March?Editor's note: The italicized emphasis below is entirely mine. It is the part that LAF chose to cut out of their quoting of Ms. Schwartz along with everything else in her article in order to make her words fit with their own agenda. While the original author's assumption that every women who marched in the Women's March did so because of their stance on abortion or that they were a victim of sexual assault the actual article makes some good points. It's a good starting point for Christians to consider the effects of sexual abuse on us all. Quite a far place from … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fifty Shades Darker of Outrage?

by Wesley Strackbein as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism originally posted at Unbroken Faith - Utter Heartbreak: A Response to 'Fifty Shades Darker'Editor's note: Two years ago when the first film "Fifty Shades of Grey" was released it unleashed reams of wailing and breast-beating in the Christian world with dire warnings of wholesale rape and sexual perversions. We're near the release of the second in the trilogy and they've taking the warnings up a few notches now, equating it with the Marquis de Sade and back alley smut.Here's the thing about not liking some film or book or aspect of culture - if you don't like it just don't watch, don't read, don't participate. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Quiverfull Christians Want to Protect Children’s Rights?

by Trevaris Tutt of The American Vision and Ladies Against Feminism - The Blasphemous Attack on Unalienable Rights of ChildrenEditor's note: Does no one in the entire Quiverfull movement not understand how saying one thing while doing another opposite thing is the very definition of hypocrisy, cognitive dissonance and not something that mentally healthy people do?  For all their talk of the intrinsic rights of children they do have the tendency of do things such as hold onto a child they consider rebellious identity documents, keep young adults at home under educated and under employed and a thousand other small repressions of rights. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marry So Others Are Not Confused?

Found on Ladies Against Feminism and written by Tim Challies of Challies.com - Why Marriage is Better Than CohabitationEditor's note: Most of the reasons to marry instead of live together in this article aren't bad ones. Some are the same arguments I've cited in my review of Vaughn Ohlman's book as a reason not to do marriage his way without a marriage license. Things such as legally protecting the rights of inheritance for the surviving spouse and protects the children born of the relationship if one party or the other decides to abandon the family. Those are good reasons to marry. However, getting married to make everyone around you that cannot figure out what your relationship … [Read more...]

Found on Ladies Against Feminism by Brad Mattes of Life News -Of 12,000 Women Infected With Zika, All Gave Birth to Healthy Baby. Women Don't "Need" AbortionEditor's note: While I do not doubt there's a strong possibility that the micro encephaly suffered by some babies born to Zika infected mothers might be a case of exposure to one of Monsanto's insecticides instead of Zika thre's no serious evidence that this was exploited by Planned Parenthood to push abortion. But, as usual, the 'Choose Life' crowd tries to frame the debate as being all about some evil plan. Emphasis below by the original author. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschooling is The Real World?

by Chris Weller from Business Insider - Why Homeschool is the Smartest Way to Teach Kids in the 21st Century as quoted by Ladies Against FeminismEditor's note: While this article is written by someone with no discernible religion ties for a secular publication the author only looks at the sanitized versions of homeschooling promoted by homeschooling advocates themselves. The danger of only publishing the positives, and there are some positive advantages for some children, is that he is ignoring the fact that homeschooling functions with not much in the way of official oversight. Which means those children who are learning from educational sources like Bill Gothard's ATI Wisdom books or … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Government Wants Your Child to be Evil?

by Anonymous at Ladies Against Feminism - A Little Mother Prevents Big BrotherEditor's note: So now they are claiming that mothers are a powerful threat to the government? While research does show that children need strong ties to both their mothers and fathers I fail to see anything out there that indicates that the government wants to raise your children, supersede your parental oversight, or holds any grand conspiracy to separate children from their parents. It's more good Christian martyrbating going on. … [Read more...]
