Quoting Quiverfull: No Right to Divorce if Your Husband Cheats?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Does God Allow Divorce For Adultery?Editor's note: BGR is gearing up to promote polygamy if I'm reading his post on adultery and divorce correctly. No real consequence for any man straying to a woman he's not married to. Great, just great. Now no only do you have to provide sex upon demand in his icky little world, you also have no legal recourse if a man commits infidelity. … [Read more...]

News: Raping For Jesus Because Bible

news

News story came out of Florida in which a man and his wife sexually abused an orphaned girl living in their home from the time she was 13 until 18 years old. Their justification? The Bible. Raping for Jesus.Turns out that the couple, Rob and Marie Johnnson, follow many of the same views as guys like Biblical Gender Roles from the Old Testament that allows multiple 'wives' and believes there is no such thing as marital rape. Thankfully, the law doesn't agree with them or BGR. They've been arrested. … [Read more...]

Preying on Those Most Vulnerable

by CaluluLast week someone sent a link for a sect that calls itself "Biblical Families". At first glance they seem like the usual patriarchal fundamentalist flavor of Christianity, like a thousand other versions of Christianity. In fact, this is how they describe themselves - … [Read more...]

Beauty: In the Eye of the Beholder

by CaluluRecently I came across a very disturbing blog posting and another and another and another. It was from a blog that I'd quoted recently on No Longer Quivering for our Quoting Quiverfull feature. The post I used from that blog was one where the blogger's husband tried to say it was alright for a Christian man … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Polygamy & Christianity?

Quoting

RedLegBen on his wife's blog Sarah's Daughter - January 17, 2013 Men value loyalty. If a wife is loyal, a man will put up with a lot of crap. I have seen men put up with women putting on weight that equals the newer economy cars but remain with their wife because they are loyal.  If feminism were reversed, women would be demanded to provide sex to their ex … [Read more...]

Justice is No Lady: Chapter 9 – Terrorists, Far and Near

Warning: This story series contains descriptions of physical abuse.by Tess WilloughbySeptember 11, 2001. This dark day united all Americans in horror, in terror, and in pain.With at least one exception: Nate Willoughby.I found out that our country had been attacked using our own commercial aircraft when my mother called me from town and said, “Turn on the news.” Her tone of voice suggested the worst of the worst of the worst: so awful that you didn’t ask “what channel?” because it didn’t matter what channel. The president had been assassinated. There was some horrific, unthinkable natural disaster, probably in Virginia. Something so bad she couldn’t say it.I hung up, t … [Read more...]

Justice Is No Lady: Chapter 8 ~ Backlash

Warning: This story series contains descriptions of physical abuse.by Tess WilloughbyPart Two: The Legal AftermathI fled to the farm where I grew up and spent several weeks just trying to get the fuzz out of my head. I went to the doctor, who diagnosed Abi with failure to thrive. I supplemented her with formula but continued to breastfeed, because for once I had the luxury of breastfeeding by my own lights, and I intended to enjoy it. I moved six kids, 9 years old and under, in with my mom and dad, who were absolute angels about it.  I do not remember either of them complaining even once.What were Tess’s long-term plans? Did I want separation? Divorce? Neither? Was God angry with me … [Read more...]

Justice is No Lady: Chapter 7 ~ Spiritual Adultery

Warning: This story series contains descriptions of physical abuse.by Tess WilloughbyNate says what happened from Christmas of 1999 through summer of 2000 was this: I condoned his affair with Angel.I guess Nate should know, because “condone” is a legal term and he’s a lawyer.  That’s not the way I remember it. I remember two things: being very ill and being very angry. After the lingeré bonfire, Nate kept his sickly, irate wife very busy listening to his sermons on forgiveness, doing unpaid paralegal work (he set up his new firm at home with the clients stolen from his former boss), getting through Christmas on a shoestring, overhauling our finances, and going to marriage counseling wi … [Read more...]

Justice is No Lady: Chapter 6 ~ In Which Nate Takes Up Racquetball

Warning: This story series contains descriptions of physical abuse.by Tess WilloughbyI tried to conceal my misery, fatigue, and desperation from the members of our new church. We had not been there very long when people began to notice how spaced-out and jumpy Tess Willoughby was. Our pastor, Mike, and our assistant pastor, Randy, both expressed concern about me.I was pregnant for the seventh time, and I dreaded another pregnancy, birth, and recovery. The clandestine feedings of Matt had delayed this pregnancy—this baby would be two whole years younger than Matt, a personal record. Matt’s birth in 1998 had been in the hospital—my first hospital delivery—because Nate had health insuran … [Read more...]
