Quoting Quiverfull: You Can Either Have A Big House Or A Big Family But Not Both

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? - Answering Large Family Objections: My, How Small Your House Is!Editor's note: Holy cow! I always thought her house looked teensy from the photos she's posted but not that tiny. My house is bigger than that and we always felt cramped with two kids. I cannot imagine having to put 4 children, much less 8 in such a small space. Plus you cannot just say that everyone with a bigger house has decided that they wanted the house more than children. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Chosing to be Quiverfull is Like Taking Some Joy Pills?

by unidentified author at Hope By Design - Take a Joy PillEditor's note: There is just so much so wrong, blaming and almost hateful about this posting on why Quiverfull is what they think is the only way. Again ideas that the rest of the world is somehow 'selfish' or not having scads of children because they want new cars or fancy geegaws are trotted out like the moldy strawmen that they are. The reasons people don't have large families any longer outside of Quiverfull are as varied and complex as people themselves are. This is another sad example of reducing a complex problem into a simplistic black and white type thinking that reduces some people to less than others. It makes it much … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Quiverfull Makes You Happy & Fulfilled?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Faith and Sex...Editor's note: More disingenuous claims that all QF Christians are going about it the 'right' way while ignoring that the highest divorce rates in the US occur among Christians. Faith and sex my rear end. Guess I should be grateful this is not his usual whining. Almost as bad as the time he insisted that child sexual abusers need grace, forgiveness and help without mentioning once care for the victims or involving law enforcement. … [Read more...]

Here’s How the ‘Pro-Life’ Money Machine Turns Desperate Women into Submissive Baby Makers

by NLQ Founder Vyckie Garrison originally published on Raw Story(Editor's note: Since October is Domestic Violence month Vyckie's story of her first marriage fits well with that theme. We're going to be featuring information on the subject of Domestic Violence a couple of times a week) Vyckie Garrison was once a minor celebrity in the Quiverfull Movement, made famous by TV’s Duggar family. As a devout, Bible-believing Christian and the mother of seven homeschooled children, Garrison spent 16 years, with her husband, publishing a newspaper for families on a similar path. Today, via a website called No Longer Quivering, she publishes resources for women leaving the movement. The f … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism and Materialism Behind Low American Birth Rates?

by Biblical Gender Roles at Biblical Gender Roles.com - Lindsey Graham Says We Need to Import Other Country's(SIC) ChildrenEditor's note: We'll no longer be directly linking to BGR because he has been rejoicing over his hit counter exploding the last six months. Better not to improve his search engine rankings while pondering his strange beliefs. Here he's bemoaning the fact that in order to maintain all the people retiring from the Baby Boomer group it looks like we'll have to import workers to keep the economy healthy. I am guessing by some of his subtle digs he's also anti-immigration and pro 'Murica' like many others in the extremes of Christianity. He wants everyone to be … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not A “Real” Woman Unless You Bear Children?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - The Heresy of Skip Moen and His Book 'Guardian Angel' Part 2Editor's note: Oh boy, now he thinks that all women secretly desire children and if you don't that you've bought some modern lie. In his simplistic and immature world all women should have children, or at least want children to validate their own roles as women. Funny how people with little to know experience in certain situations or roles always want to redefine those roles for others. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Nursing Hormones Prevent Cancer?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - I'm Done!Editor's note: This is a part of a posting Nancy Campbell made telling the ladies commenting on Above Rubies that they are done with having children that they are not following 'God's Will' followed by a list of the benefits of having as many children as possible. This is point #3. Pure Nancy 'Science' is not a reason to go on breeding, bearing and breastfeeding innumerable children. If it were then why didn't Nancy herself have more natural children? Speaking of which we still do not know what has become of her adopted Liberian children that disappeared completely from her family and her writings. Where are they Nancy? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is a Man’s Infidelity Always The Wife’s Fault?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the sadder things that has happened after Josh Duggar's infidelity was exposed is the number of Christians expressing the idea that a wife is always responsible when the husband has sex with someone else during their marriage. It's an idea that has been mentioned even in the mainstream media, that poor heartbroken betrayed Anna Duggar is going to be blaming herself and it's likely the entire family will blame her. Like she doesn't have enough trauma and pain in her life this unBiblical theology point is going to add to that. It's already … [Read more...]
