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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – The Computer is a Porn Dispencing Machine?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - The ChallengeEditor's note: Sharing this bit by bit because of the so bizarre nature of Michael's false claims. He stated in a previous piece that porn, incest and infidelity as a problem did not exist in the church twenty years ago. That's what happens when you live in a backwater cocoon wrapped in your own world, you mistake everything else as the same way of life. It's just not that simple no matter what Mr. Pearl says. Why does personal responsibility never seem to exist in Pearl World? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Before Internet There Was No Incest & Very Little Infidelity Among Christians?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - The ChallengeEditor's note: This article is so filled with rose-colored views of the past combined with dire warnings about the future that it really begs to be examined piece by piece. Michael seems to think that no one but a few perverts looked at porn before 1982. This piece is from 2002. What do you think? How does he explain the strip clubs of the 1950s and 60s? How about all the nudie magazines you could buy? The start of Playboy in the 1950s? He doesn't. Pornography predates Christ by quite some time. Claiming that Christians didn't do these things in the past is really delusional. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 6: Mr. Visionary (Look At Porn And Your Kids Will Die!)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 83-84We are still talking about Visionaries. In fact, today we are talking about idle Visionaries. And King David! The weird thing is, Michael never says David was a Visionary. I keep thinking of what I know about his story, and I would categorize him more as a Command man, if I had to choose. Maybe a bit of steady thrown in, but not really a Visionary. But let's see where Michael goes with this. … [Read more...]
