Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Perverted Porno Freaks Don’t Need Prayer?

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - More of SodomEditor's note: Last little bit in Michael's hate and blaming fest. This type of thinking keeps people out of the hands of real help, competent therapists, understanding pastors and lay leaders and others who've walked that same path. It's just never as simple as toss out your tv and pray without ceasing. That does nothing for obsessional thoughts or real addictions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Perverted Porno Freaks Don’t Need Prayer?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - More of SodomEditor's note: When we left Michael he was detailing why confession and therapy does not work for addictions according to him. We continue on. Comparing someone struggling with addictions to a baboon cannot be healthy. If only it was as simple as he thinks it is. … [Read more...]

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Just the swallows return to Capistrano every St. Joseph's Day in the spring, the advent of Bikini Season brings a sudden rise in the many blog posts and articles in Quiverfull/Evangelical/Fundamentalism decrying all the immodesty of this world defrauding boys of their innocence and hysterical fear mongering over pornography.

Quoting Quiverfull: Viewing Porn Makes You a Sexual Victim?

by Claudine Gallacher at Protect Young Minds! - The Secret Life of a Young Girl Abused by PornographyEditor's note: While I agree with the writer that it's a good idea to try and keep children from viewing things like pornography I cannot help but think her tale of the girl whose life was wreck by viewing semi-porn at a young age is fake. Just like those of Debi and Michael Pearl, belabored and false to make a point that could have been arrived at in a more reasonable way. Fear mongering Christianity at its most ridiculous false way. Is not lying a sin in the Bible? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 Disrespectful Wife Leads to Divorce?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles – Why the Movie ‘Fireproof’ Offers Unbiblical and BAD Marriage AdviceEditor's note: Now we're moving on to Larry's comparing his first failed marriage to the things he thinks are wrong in 'Fireproof'. Turns out that the movie was released about the same time as he was divorcing his first wife and that someone in church leadership insisted that Larry make like Caleb in the movie and practice sacrificial love. That didn't go over very well at all. I apologize in advance for the length of today's quote, but we're pushing through towards the end of this mess. This is the next to last bit. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 Disrespectful Wife Leads to Divorce?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Why the Movie 'Fireproof' Offers Unbiblical and BAD Marriage AdviceEditor's note: Larry lays out where he thinks the blame goes for the marriage problems. Very predictably very little of the blame falls to Kirk Cameron's character. Later today we'll examine Larry's claims that 'Fireproof' was much like his wrecked first marriage. … [Read more...]

Slut-Shaming Unmarried Pregnant Baptist Women

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIt is commonly believed by most Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church members that unmarried members are virgins and that they do not masturbate or have lustful thoughts. Listening to preaching multiple times a week, daily reading the Bible and praying — along with cold showers — are sure antidotes for sexual sin. When the preacher’s daughter someday marries the deacon’s son, everyone will think that both of them are pure as the driven snow, with thoughts of only serving Jesus. This is the myth that is promoted in Baptist sermons, books, and on websites. It has no basis in reality, but people sure … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Outside Help Unless Husband is Breaking the Law?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles – 10 Reasons Christian Couples Should NOT See Marriage Counselors as always linked through Do Not Link for your safety and the admin’s sanity.Editor's note: The many commenters who say that Larry doesn't want a wife or a life's partner, what he really wants is a slave, are clearly correct. Again, a woman cannot talk to a man about his porn or hiding things. Only if it's criminal behavior. So if your husband refuses to work and sits around wanking to internet porn all the live long day you cannot say anything to him about that? Everything he says creates an unsafe environment that leads to possible abuse. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Help For Addictions?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - More of SodomEditor's note: This poor man who is struggling with pornography wrote Mr. Pearl for help. The answer? Claiming that everyone that struggles with some sort of weakness or addiction is merely sinfully selfish and unwilling to repent. Even counseling is considered not right by Pearl.  He really never misses an opportunity to openly disparage others does he? He doesn't mention depression or mental disturbances but it's likely he thinks they stem from sin too. This just breaks my heart after having been around people much of my life struggling with addictions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Sodomy is the New Norm in the Church?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy  - The ChallengeEditor's note: Michael is at it again, making outrageous claims about how the church is now a cess pit when 15 years ago only 1% of the members were hentai-loving. I do not know where he is getting his statistics but that 1% of regular porn consumers is bound to be way way off. I knew guys twenty years ago in the church struggling with serious porn issues, this is not some recent thing that Michael can use to shill his addiction series. And yes, there was child molestation and incest in families, yes, even 'Good Christian' families much earlier than he states too. Too bad "Back to the Future" Delorean time machine isn't real or we … [Read more...]
