Watchtheshepherd

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch the Shepherd(Editor's note: This series was originally posted in 2011 and is written from the perspective of a woman that is still a Christian.)Dear friends,I've been posting articles and web links for my series on Gender & Authority this past week, and just compiled them all into the July edition of my Hope Chest e-magazine which is sent to about 950 families around the world. This is the introduction I gave to those who don't know me, and I thought it would serve well as an introduction to the blog series, too... … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cats Are Better Mothers Than Feminists?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Inborn InstinctivenessEditor's note: There are several things about this post that just make my blood boil. 1. The phrase "And she is only an animal." as if the little cat is somehow a lesser being than Nancy and 2. the idea that working mothers that have to leave their children to be nurtured by others are not as maternal as her outdoor kitty. How insulting all the way around! Run, kitty, run! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Judging Others Reproductive Choices Meanly?

quotingquiverfull

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - 7 Misconceptions About Moms of Large FamiliesEditor's note: Do people actually walk up to moms of many and say these things to their faces? I have a hard time believing that they do, except I do know that Quiverfull moms have no trouble telling people in the church with small families, either by choice or because of fertility issues, any number of very ugly judgmental things about their lack of children. Here's a thought, perhaps no one on either side needs to publicly say stupid things to each other about the number of children they have. Oh yeah, that would mean that the QF crowd would have to shut their mouths about the infertile too. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Large Families Have Plenty of Individualized Time With Each Child?

quotingquiverfull

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - 7 Misconceptions About Moms of Large FamiliesEditor's note: Yes, I will agree with Kelly that the demands of a large family are different than a small family, but that's as far as I would go. My own mother was one of twelve in a Catholic QF family and to this day at age 75 still complains about the lack of attention and love of her mother because of the large family. Things like that wound and stay with you for the rest of your life. It's statistically and mathematically impossible to give as much one on one attention to one of twelve versus one of two or three. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Resist Babies?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Can Resist A Baby?Editor's note: Who can resist a baby? Lots of folks. College students, senior citizens, high school students, men and women working towards a goal, single people, married people and hopefully those ladies in the path of the Zika virus. A baby is not a trophy or a prize collected at the end of the particular difficult game. They aren't a box to be checked off on a list. They are a serious commitment, a life time commitment and not everyone is prepared to make that commitment no matter how Nancy phrases it in bad poetry. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hospital Births Disgusting & Unsafe?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? - Did I Already Mention I Hate IVF?Editor's note: Ironic that a woman that parades her brood of children internet-wide and even the ultrasound scans of her TTTS twins in utero to the entire world is going to complain about someone else having a token child to show around. Pot meet kettle. … [Read more...]
