Quoting Quiverfull: So Shut Up?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Nagging Doesn't WorkEditor's note: For once I agree with Nancy Campbell --- nagging does not work, it only pisses off the naggee! But, here's a thought that I'm sure has never crossed Nancy's mind, nagging isn't strictly limited to wife nagging her husband. Sometimes it's reversed to the husband nagging the wife, or either the wife or husband nagging the children. Mother in laws nagging the wife. Children nagging parents. Nagging sucks no matter who does it and it usually only reinforces whatever behavior the nagger does not like in the first place. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Constant Child-Rearing Is Rest?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Has A Better Place For YouEditor's note: Doubling down on lack of all understanding of what words actually mean is Nancy Campbell insisting that quivering mothers with broods of children live in rest. Yes, she is talking about a mental/emotional/spiritual rest but it is very different than the realities of serving in a large family. It's easy for Nancy to rest as she has a staff of Above Rubies girl interns doing the hard stuff and before that a pile of African adoptees working, at least before she disappeared them. This is exactly the kind of thinking in quiverfull that will make you lose your mind trying to carry it out another with ten million … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Scary Thoughts of Forced Motherhood?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Mothers Won The WarEditor's note: Is this just wishful thinking or a real prophesy? Sounds like wishful thinking but with the way so many of our politicians are pushing Quiverfull ideas and agendas it could be something that happens by government mandate one day.  While motherhood can be a noble thing mandating stay at home motherhood for everyone is an awful idea. Freedom is a good thing. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Accepting Marriage Equality Will Take Away Your Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Sitting Down or on the Offensive?Editor's note: We've taken a break from Nancy and her fear-mongering about mothers not mothering right. But now she's joining with her husband Colin Campbell of Meat For Men (sounds like the title of male gay porn, doesn't it?) in fear-mongering that God will start destroying America if we do not resist the Supreme Court's decision on marriage equality. She likens it to what Lot did. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Is A Counterfeit Mothering?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Brass Instead of GoldEditor's note: Nancy does the blaming shaming guilting thing she's so good at it leading to her stating that using daycare (and the unspoken shame of working a job) isn't embracing our Biblical roles as mothers. She doesn't answer why she didn't embrace her motherhood role when she adopted those children from Africa. I guess her words only work if you're a white Evangelical Christian women having your own children. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Never Worry About Providing For Your Kids?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies Magazine – Is God Able to Provide For Another Baby?Editor's note: Oh so now we're supposed to plant a garden on top of all the other 'supposed to dos' Nancy throws in. She tries to shoot down each and every objection to gardening and throws in a ton of scriptures to support the crap she's spewing trying to add additional burdens to already busy mothers.  While having a garden is usually a good thing, there's just no way that would work for everyone and should never be a 'must do' thing.  Unless, of course, you have a fleet of adopted children from Africa that you can set out there weeding and picking bugs off your crops. Right, Nancy? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Never Worry About Providing For Your Kids

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies Magazine – Is God Able to Provide For Another Baby?Editor's  note: I guess it's good that there were potatoes and not cat food like another prominent Quiverfull enforcer's family had to eat. Tender mercies indeed. There was a time in my life when all I had to eat for a week was potatoes and I don't remember thinking it was such a blessing to eat them three times a day.  Nancy, potatoes are not manna no matter how you spin this. You need a variety of things to eat to stay healthy and to ensure optimum growth and development in your children. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Never Worry About Providing For Your Kids?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies Magazine – Is God Able to Provide For Another Baby?Editor's note: And I suppose Nancy would claim that ravens came down to feed her if she was stranded on an island. For most people they do have to find food and clothing. Plus things like heating to keep a houseful of children warm instead of dressing them in their warmest clothes and force marching them around the condemned house till they were warm, like Nancy's own daughter had to do. Following Nancy's rules for Quiverfull leads to poverty and doing without, not God miraculously providing every need. … [Read more...]
