Quoting Quiverfull: Early Marriage Best For Christians?

younglove

by Justin Deeter from Ladies Against Feminism and JustinDeeter.comInterestingly enough, while Mr. Deeter makes a few good points on why he believes Christians should marry young he does eventually move on to Von Ohlman's reason for marrying young: keeping you from falling in/on someone you're not married to's vagina/penis. It really does always boil down to sex with the patriarchy crowd.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Is Homeschooling the Answer to Temper Tantrums?

temper tantrums

by Tracy Ventola from Ladies Against Feminism and Alternatives to School (Kerry McDonald) - Why We're Not Going Back to School in the FallFrom Ladies Against Feminism: Last fall, we quit formal schooling. We stopped dragging our seven-year-old daughter—kicking and screaming—out of bed each morning. We no longer held our breath each afternoon as we drove up the school’s driveway, where the teacher would hand us a physically, emotionally, and spiritually depleted child. A child who held it together all day at school and unraveled as soon as she entered the sanctity of our minivan. That unraveling would take the form of tantrums—screaming, hitting, kicking, and punching at home. Somehow we’ … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What Do Kids Really Need?

mothergoose

by Kelly Crawford of Ladies Against Feminism and Generation Cedar - You Have Too Many Children to Give Them What They NeedSomewhere along the line, we created an imaginary set of rules about what kids need  for healthy development and if you’ll listen closely, you’ll hear it: “To love my children is to buy them things.” Suffice it to say, if love equals providing material comforts,  American children are the most well-loved children in the world. Ironically, they also suffer the most from narcissism, ingratitude, and a grandiose sense of entitlement. Those are the children we created attempting to “give them what they need.”  We said, essentially, though no parent would admit it, “Let me … [Read more...]

Debunking Fundamentalist Christian Myths: Is College Worth the Cost

myth-vs-fact

by James C. Titkemeyer, husband of NLQ Admin Suzanne Titkemeyer and economist at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Republished from the Monthly Labor Review by permission.(Editor's note: We will be posting articles debunking some of the assumptions held by the fundamentalist evangelical wing of Christianity.  Many homeschooling proponents such as Kevin Swanson, Ladies Against Feminism, the Pearls and others believe that education should end with graduation from homeschooling high school coursework and that college is not necessary. The facts do not support their belief in no college.) College: is it still a smart investment?It’s the end of the school year, and that means graduation f … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Holding Leaders in the Church to Accountability is “Blaspheming”?

whisperinggossip

by Stacy McDonald of Your Sacred Calling blog and Ladies Against Feminism - Blashphemed(sic) or Hallowed Be His Name Again, Paul is describing the way we, as a Church, may cause God’s Word to be blasphemed when we falsely represent His holiness by teaching or living a life counter to His Word. That could be through unrepentant sin or by teaching a distorted view of Scripture. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Unmarried Are Always Under the Headship of Their Fathers?

obeyingfather

by Suzannah Rowntree at Ladies Against Feminism - Unmarried Women and the Things of the Lord This verse does not command us how things are supposed to be. Rather it describes a tendency, a weakness, among married women to please their husbands above God. The same tendency does not apply as strongly to unmarried women, even in their own families, but if it does, the Lord still tells us we must “hate” our parents and siblings. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stay At Home Daughters Are Slaves?

leavinghome

by Suzannah Rowntree at Ladies Against Feminism - Is Stay-At-Home Daughterhood Biblical? But there was one thing missing from my convictions on “stay-at-home” daughterhood. Folks—particularly Christian peers—would remind me that the Bible doesn’t specifically command, describe, or endorse the concept, and therefore one could not make it a rule for everyone. Up until recently, I found this reasoning pretty fair. None of the books I read on the subject of daughterhood and the family made more than a persuasive argument from Scripture—certainly nothing I found convincing. Most of the factors in my own decision had been personal, and while I loved the life so much, I couldn’t recommend it to oth … [Read more...]
