NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Fundamentalists Obsess About Modesty?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.First we have many different ladies and ministries calling modesty anything from floor length skirts to blending with the crowd in such a way that doesn't draw attention to yourself. Of course, in some Muslim countries modesty is defined by the burqa, but in fundamentalist Christianity modesty is a sliding scale, whatever your pastor decrees. Knee to collar bone covered with no short sleeves? Mennonite caped dresses disguising the shape of the breasts and bottom? Denim skirts and loose tees? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Never Worry About Providing For Your Kids?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies Magazine - Is God Able to Provide For Another Baby?Editor's note: A long article from Nancy ordering people to trust God and have as many kids as possible. The truly bizarre part of the article to me is Nancy trying to shame people by pointing out that the Israelites wandering for forty years didn't have split level homes or 7-11s but they had everything they needed to support a huge family because God provided manna in the wilderness. Sorry Nancy, that really does not translate into our times. Is she genuinely suggesting living in a tent here? Isn't that what the Naugler family was doing before CPS decided that wasn't providing for their children? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Being Married Is Perverting God’s Will?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Rape - Fruitless CelibacyEditor's note: Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Paul also say it was better to remain unmarried unless you could not keep yourself from committing sexual sin? That's a far piece from trying to claim that Paul wanted all young women married and having lots of kids. Typical fundamentalist quiverfull cherry picking of scripture. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Worry About The Children You Already Have, Pop Out More?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - When Should We Stop Blessings?Editor's note: It's pretty obvious that any sane person would answer Nancy's question with "When we've decided we don't want any more children", or "We can barely feed the ones we have", or "Because this is wrecking my health." Nancy takes none of that in to consideration, it's all have as many as you can no matter what the realities are of your life. She immediately knocks down the established Christian notion of 'Free Will' as an excuse to sin. The examples of great men she cites as being from large families doesn't take into account that a) there was no birth control available, b) you needed large numbers of children … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Good Stewards of Money Are Disobeying God?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Logic or Faith?Editor's note: Nancy has started to answer some of the comments from her posts that don't line up with the pump out the babies or else theology she preaches on her site. They are perfect examples of the breathtakingly bad theology preached in the Quiverfull movement that ignores all common sense for a twisted messed up pile of illogical mixed with Bible. So God promises to provide for each child? What happened with all the children living in the abject poverty of someplace like, say, inner city slums? Why didn't God provide for them? … [Read more...]

The Duggars’ Moral Superiority: A Religious Right Stronghold, Exposed

Here, have a cute monkey to keep from being triggered anew by the Duggars - image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionThe Bible says, in Romans 3:23, "For the wages of sin is death..."This verse is very well known to both fundamentalist Christians, to which the Duggar clan belong, as well as evangelical Christianity. Sin is a big deal. It requires all humans to die. According to the book of Genesis, the fact that Adam and Eve ate the fruit of 'The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil', meant that sin was passed down to every human being. Sin was the one genetic thing that everyone got equally. … [Read more...]
