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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Planned Parenthood Using Zika to Push Abortions For All?

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...]

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ Founder from Raw StoryEditor's note: In the last few months so much poisonous quiverfull theology has emerged from the blog Always Learning by Ladies Against Feminism editor Lori Alexander.

Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Promotes Child Abuse?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Childish NatureEditor's note: Lori Alexander, one of the ladies at Ladies Against Feminism, has come out in favor of Michael Pearl's version of child abuse. She's writing a series promoting Pearl's book 'To Train Up A Child'. She never uses the words 'rod', only once using the relatively benign word 'spanking' while engaging in the type of coded language double-speak most who abuse their children in quiverfull use. Disgusting and perverted. Thankfully the Alexanders no longer have young children to abuse in this manner! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Courtship is ‘Safer’ Than Dating?

by Rowina Seidler as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism from Ruby in the Rough - Courtship vs BoyfriendsEditor's note: No where in this article does the author come out and give that hoary old untrue Christian trope about giving away pieces of your heart, but it's a close thing. Sounds like her idea of courtship does not involve developing feelings or attraction to a guy, it sounds more like an extended job interview. … [Read more...]
