Quoting Quiverfull: Falling Off a Ladder Reminds You to Pray?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Family Prayer TimeEditor's note: This is just bizarre, even for Nancy Campbell, who often makes some leaps of logic in her daily 'encouragement' She's saying that you should always pray for persecuted Christians in other countries? Okay, yes, that's alright. But then she follows it up with a story about her daughter Serene falling off a ladder, injuring herself and realizing that she has it good even falling off a ladder compared to Christians in other countries. Are we supposed to cry or laugh here? Going through pain is supposed to remind us to pray for others? Ca … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Childhood Vaccinations Cause Chronic Illnesses Like Diabetes?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Must ReadEditor's note: This is one of those horrid things that homeschooling Quiverfull people promote that exposes everyone to harm. In the unquoted bits Nancy says it's just no big deal if your children contract something like measles or mumps because they will heal from it. Oh yeah? Let's ask those folks who've lost a child to a common illness that there are available vaccines for. And no, Nancy, diabetes, Tourettes, allergies, anxiety and asthma are not caused by vaccination! She twists that recent measles outbreak at Disneyland by saying it was all adults who's vaccinations had worn off. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Nancy Campbell Obsesses Over Penis?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Eliminated Word Editor's note: Nancy Campbell's obsesses over penis? These are words I never thought I'd have to post ever here. I'm really confused and I'm guessing you are too. This seems a weird stretch even for Nancy Campbell. Putting on the Biblical full armor of God does not mention 'loins', she is right about that. But... is it really that important, or is this just stupid misinterpretations of Nancy again? I thought it was all about protecting the uterus with her. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Eve Woke Up to Her Home So Should You?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Do You Love Home?Editor's note: Do you think that Nancy ever really reads her Bible, or does she simply cherry pick only those verses that support her warped view? Most everyone, male or female, loves their home and it has nothing to do with the Bible. And Eve opened her eyes to her home? What. The. Guacamole? Didn't Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden first and later out in the world? None of this blathering is Biblical or true. … [Read more...]

This is a series looking at the marriage advice given in Nancy Campbell’s book ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’.While packing for a move I have turned up are books, terrible idiotic books filled with toxic advice. One of those books is by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’.

Reading through this book now I cannot help but laugh at some of the suggestions. The book is entirely written by commenters and co … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Eat Dinner at the Table Because God?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Where is Your Family?Editor's note: Nancy has circled back around to one of her favorite straw man arguments - the need of the family to eat every meal, but most especially dinner at the table with each other. She's not worried about if the family can put food on that table or if that family is filled with abuse, just that they eat together. At least this time she's not insisting on fine china, tablecloths and spices. … [Read more...]
