Quoting Quiverfull: You Blaspheme When You Work Outside of the Home?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Beautiful LifestyleEditor's note: So now Nancy is taking her theology to a scary strange place. She claims if you do not rejoice in staying home and being the most perfect, happy, joyous wife and mother while keeping your home perfect then you are blaspheming against God. Nancy does not provide any real scriptures to support this, acting like everyone should just KNOW this is God's intent for women.f … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Mothering Effects Eternity!?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Six Generations!Editor's note: It's always interesting how Nancy always manages to extrapolate out every silly thing you do as having eternal consequences and add 'must dos' to women's roles as wives and mothers. While mothering does have long term effects, both good and bad, I'm not sure I buy her you are mothering for eternity talk here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Motherhood is a Battlefield?

by Julie Neils from Ungrind – Warrior MamaEditor's note: More bad battle metaphors and self-congratulatory words. Yes, there's nothing wrong with choosing to be a stay at home mom, but don't deny others that option to choose and don't pretend you being a stay at home mother is some sort of culture warrior stance. It's just a choice, your choice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Motherhood is a Battlefield?

by Julie Neils from Ungrind - Warrior MamaEditor's note: Why is everything a spiritual struggle for Quiverfull women?  I raised my children relatively easily without all this inner angst and warrior on a battlefield struggling that many Quiverfull mothers express. Motherhood isn't all roses and champagne but neither is it a battlefield, unless you deliberately make it one. How many generations of mothers have raised children without it being a battlefield? Plus who are all these nasty cruel people saying hateful things to children? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mothers Must Give All?

by Abigail Dodds of John Piper's The Counsel for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood - 5 Truth For Our DaughtersEditor's note: This is a not a completely toxic ideas article. In some of the unquoted parts it talks about accepting your looks and body as they are and that not every woman will marry and have children. But this part could have been written by any other typical Quiverfull female cultural enforcer, like Nancy Campbell or Debi Pearl. The idea that if you do manage to marry you must only be a wife and mother to exclusion of all else. It's simply not that black and white. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Good Enough For Jesus, Good Enough For You?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Unpopular WordsEditor's note: Now Nancy is using the birth story of Jesus to try and force others to be quiverfull. The point she misses is that Mary didn't get any sort of choice in what happened to her. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Nursing Hormones Prevent Cancer?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - I'm Done!Editor's note: This is a part of a posting Nancy Campbell made telling the ladies commenting on Above Rubies that they are done with having children that they are not following 'God's Will' followed by a list of the benefits of having as many children as possible. This is point #3. Pure Nancy 'Science' is not a reason to go on breeding, bearing and breastfeeding innumerable children. If it were then why didn't Nancy herself have more natural children? Speaking of which we still do not know what has become of her adopted Liberian children that disappeared completely from her family and her writings. Where are they Nancy? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Early Marriage or You’re a Used Up Whore?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Waiting GameEditor's note: Okay, okay, so perhaps Nancy didn't call older brides whores. But she did say that people who marry later are coming into the marriage 'violated', which is sort of her polite way of saying 'slut' or 'whore'. She's pushing the same idea that Von Ohlman and that disgusting Biblical Gender Roles guy promote, marry very young because if you wait you might commit the sin of lust. … [Read more...]
