Quoting Quiverfull: You Are Doing Submission Wrong?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Disastrous Results With Headship/SubmissionEditor's note: Lori gets an email from someone saying that submission didn't work for her marriage and she, of course, has to tell the lady that the writer and her husband are doing it wrong. As usual the letter writer is accused of being controlling and not minding her thoughts. Both of those are some of the more damaging ideas in Evangelical Quiverfull. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 3 Contrasting The Types (Psychic Michael Knows All)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 130-131Last time we read a story about Debi going to a doctor's office, and applying the "foolproof" techniques of identifying type to relate to two different doctors. Today, we're continuing this story. Well, I say continuing this story, but really, Michael starts extrapolating about the docs. This has to be the most blatant use of his prophetic powers yet. In fact, I would say this rivals some of Debi's famous knowing-everything-about-everyone judgments. I hope you're excited. I know I am! … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet: Part 11 Mr. Steady (You’re Not A Leader, But Lead Your Family)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 104-105We are getting near the end of the Mr. Steady chapter. Personally, I can't wait to be done with the sections on types. Anyway, today Michael is summing up Mr. Steady's character, and offering advice about how to be better (read: be more commanding).Text is in purple … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Michael Pearl Invented ‘Healthy’ Patriarchy?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Balanced PatriarchEditor's note: Even as far back as 2009 Michael was throwing shade at Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips over their patriarchal teachings, well before the news that both men are sexual predators emerged. The original article has a longer version of the history of patriarchy and society's problems, but we're picking up the history at the time that the Pearls claim they started practicing it. Lots of blaming others per usual.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Blame Your Lazy Husband For Not Changing?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: Debi loves to call women lazy and berated them, but apparently men get a pass for being lazy. It all boils down to the wife being fully submissive. Yeah, like that's going to work. So what can a woman do if her husband wants her to send their children to public school and go to college? She can become a Proverbs 31 wife. She can study, learn, grow, and become successful. She can win his confidence in her as a teacher of his children. In all my 40 years of ministering to families, I have never seen a husband (no matter how stiff-necked and against homeschooling) who didn’t respond with thanksgiving when his wife b … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Bible Says Men Own Women?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Does the Bible teach the concept of "Human Property"?Editor's note: Before anyone asks: No, this is not a parody or a site like 'The Onion' this is real! This guy is really borderline Mens Rights Activists (MRA) with culture reinforcement from the Bible. Slavery hasn't been the law of the land for over 160 years now but you'd never know it from his statements. Women and children are owned by the husband/father/patriarch according to this guy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 11 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: So Michael advocates allowing your sons to have legitimate adult responsibilities and follows that up with a story about beating his adult son at wrestling, saying, "Made him eat sand. It was a great feeling—a measure of my manhood." Michael tells you to do one thing yet it sounds like he's doing quite another entirely. It's not supposed to be about him or his so called 'manhood,' it's supposed to be about raising healthy well adjusted children into young adulthood. … [Read more...]
