Quoting Quiverfull: The Devil Hates Christian Marriage?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Building on the Right FoundationEditor's note: And continuing on the same theme that his wife, Nancy Campbell, uses here is some blaming the world for being evil and claiming you have to keep your children protected from that same evil world. They are in lockstep with each other. They love to make mothers live in fear and denigrate anyone that doesn't agree with their agenda. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism Declares Marriage A Crime?

quotingquiverfull

by Jennifer Adams of Boundless as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Difficulty of Admitting We Want to be MarriedEditor's note: At no point in Jennifer Adams piece on Boundless does she blame feminism for women dismissing marriage. That is strictly the spin out of nothing that Ladies Against Feminism does. They read things, like the Bible, like other blogs, come to a completely different conclusion than the meaning inferred and run with that false idea. They seem feminism under every idea. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be married, but not wanting to be married is not some evil feminist plot. Always astounded by the reading comprehension fail in many of LAF's pieces. Guess … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Single Girls Get To Be ‘Holy’?

quotingquiverfull

by Anna at Young Keepers of the Home - How Should We View Being Single?Editor's note: Whenever I run across ladies that say use your single years to be holy and once you marry you must be serving and pleasing your husbands and children I just want to ask them why they limit themselves to such teeny tiny little boxes for their life plans. Many of the women in the Bible held up as examples didn't lead such scripted lives in a limited sphere so why do that to yourself? Quiverfull theology sets you up for this life of being less than your talents and desires. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Get Married So You Won’t Have A Heart Attack?

quotingquiverfull

by Nicole M. King originally posted at Mercantor Net as 'Marriage protects from heart disease' before being quoted and renamed by  Ladies Against Feminism - Feminism is Bad For Your Heart HealthEditor's note - LAF is still bloviating over '50 Shades of Grey' mostly, right down to posting articles opposing the movie by people like Vision Forum's Geoffrey Botkin. They have taken time out from that theme to proclaim that feminists have heart attacks, twisting the research that shows married folks, feminism supporters or not, have fewer fatal heart attacks. Disingeniousness at its finest.Here's what LAF had to say about the article and study: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Adult Children Must Be Under Father Headship?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Call a Eunuch a EunuchEditor's Note: This sums up what the patriarchy is all about, not what is genuinely best for either the family or the individual, but putting control over every aspect of the individual into the hands of the patriarchy.  Which is not a healthy dynamic and isn't even Biblical. What about the scripture that commands a man and a woman to leave their families and cleve only to each other when they marry? Patriarchy extrapolated out to an unhealthy degree.  … [Read more...]

Part 1 – Is It Possible To Be A Sex-Positive Christian?

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons If you’ve spent any time in feminist circles, you’ve probably bumped into the termsex-positive. It gets thrown around a bit, and one thing I’ve noticed is that it can occasionally be difficult to nail down what the writer/speaker means when they use it, so I’m going to offer a definition for what I mean when I use it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Every Woman Must Marry or be Unhappy?

NLQ original image

by Maggie Gallagher from the Witherspoon Institute's Public Discourse and quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The New SinglenessEditor's note: LAF and the Witherspoon Institute seem to think that remaining single and childless is a huge tragedy and against the will of God, not a personal choice made with our free will. One of the big falsehoods within the Quiverfull movement is that every women should be a mother, when it's clear that not everyone is suited to be a good mother. Is marrying and having a family really as the author alleges 'independence-shattering'? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Touching Anyone You’re Not Married To?

Quoting

by Dr. Peter Masters as published in the Metropolitan Tabernacle (London, England - IFB affiliated) publication  The Sword and Trowel 2012 - Mutual Debts in Marriage Editor's note: Ran across this piece on one of the many Facebook recovery groups. This article has some pretty appalling ideas of what 'debts' are owed between spouses in a marriage. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Is Meant Only To Serve God?

Quoting

by Francis and Lisa Chan from The Gospel Coalition as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Marriage and EternityEditor's note: LAF seems to be laboring under the idea that marriage is mostly about serving God. Did I miss that part of the Bible because I don't remember anything said about the primary function of marriage was serving God. What about those people that say that the primary function of marriage is to keep you from sexual sin, or to increase the kingdom by birthing a quiverful of righteous arrows? Seems to me that different groups put different spins on marriage instead of recognizing it for what it is, a union of two people who love each other and want to spend every day for t … [Read more...]
