Quoting Quiverfull: Let Me Tell You How to Look?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Your AppearanceEditor's note: Strangely enough Steve stays away from telling you to cover your bits and that skirts must touch your ankles, instead going right to ugliness, body modification and plastic surgery. That's pretty extreme and it's not like plastic surgery doesn't help correct legitimate conditions such as a deviated nose septum or having growths removed from your face. Anderson is right about one thing, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it is very subjective and personal. Interesting mentions in this piece about losing weight. One has to wonder if he is on his wife to lose weight considering how much she mentions … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Idolatry and Modesty?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Making Idols Out Of IdolsEditor's note: Since it's bikini season and the quiverfull crowd is baying for the blood of any harlot not covering herself from knee to elbow many of the 'righteous' bloggers are upset. Personally I do think that many of the modesty crowd do make an idol out of being the most modest and feminine and stick out of a crowd in a way that draws much more attention to themselves. I thought the whole purpose of modest dress as described by Paul in the scriptures was as a way to blending in and not standing out. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Men are Going to Lust Over Other Women?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - How Should Christian Women Respond to Their Men Looking at Other Women?Editor's note: Larry's been rattling on about Chris Matthews being caught on a hot mic admiring Donald Trump's wife Melania. He posted a link to a long three part series he wrote about how women should respond to the men in their life looking in a sexual manner at other women. Go into Larry's site and follow the links to the series if for no other reason than to view a series of photographs of men looking at women in the most obvious and creepy way. A cavalcade of creeps. The guys all look like they are preparing to act on their thoughts. Creepy, wrong and so disrespectful … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Modesty to be ‘Modest’ or be Different?

by Melissa of Progressive Quiverfull - Reason For The SeasonEditor's note: This is a blogger that only started blogging in December and is a very recent convert to the Quiverfull lifestyle. She's trying to claim she's doing it right and most others are just too fundy. I was thinking yesterday about the reasons that people give for dressing modestly after getting some dirty looks and mumbled 'immodest' pushback while being out running errands dressed in boots, leggings, a long tunic and a knee length sweater vest. It was someone I used to be friends with when I was QF. She wore a jean skirt that fell exactly between her knees and ankles, a sweater and flats. She looked miserable and was … [Read more...]
