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...]

What You Need To Know About Quiverfull And The Duggars

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ FounderFrom her Facebook page answering this Craigslist rant:to the people and supporters of the Quiverfull Cult (United States)You incestuous brainwashed bastards should all be taken out and beaten within an inch of your lives! The sickest part is that you get away with the shit you do because of your so called "christian" values. Personally, I believe all pedophiles should be shot or hung! People had better wake up before these "christian" nutbags get ahold of your children!Someone in Seattle is super pissed ... the outrage is understandable, but also misguided. I'm going to keep saying this until somebody actually hears me: … [Read more...]

News: Josh Duggar in Rehab – Vyckie Garrison in People Magazine

TMZ is reporting that Josh Duggar has now gone away into a long term rehab in order to try and deal with his issues. No word where or if it is a legitimate counseling facility or if it's some gimcrack fundamentalist Christian 'do construction work while you repent place.'Also Anna Duggar will receive counseling. Again, no word on if this is real and useful counseling or shame and blame based Bill Gothard style counseling that does more harm than good. Will update this page as more news arrives. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Constant Child-Rearing Is Rest?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Has A Better Place For YouEditor's note: Doubling down on lack of all understanding of what words actually mean is Nancy Campbell insisting that quivering mothers with broods of children live in rest. Yes, she is talking about a mental/emotional/spiritual rest but it is very different than the realities of serving in a large family. It's easy for Nancy to rest as she has a staff of Above Rubies girl interns doing the hard stuff and before that a pile of African adoptees working, at least before she disappeared them. This is exactly the kind of thinking in quiverfull that will make you lose your mind trying to carry it out another with ten million … [Read more...]

The Planet Mommywood (is this a play on names ala Planet Hollywood and its over priced burgers? Confusing?) ladies, Jenn and Kristen, did a video in reply to Vyckie's article. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Jim Bob Duggar Great Dad Allows Consequences for ‘Sinful Behavior’?

by Michelle Duggar from The Duggar Family.com - 5 Reasons Why Jim Bob Duggar Is A Loving DadEditor's note: In light of what his son Josh did to his own sisters this is just ridiculous to claim. It minimizes the damage done and the criminal nature of Josh's actions while pretending Jim Bob allowed him to face real consequences. For a complete takedown of all the ridiculous things Michelle is claiming about Jim Bob take a look at the Facebook group Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray. They posted a point by point rebuttal to Michelle's words. This is nothing more than a shameless attempt to try and make everyone forget about their recent troubles so that they can … [Read more...]

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

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...]
