Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Roosters and Michael Pearl Are Jerks?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – PubermaniaEditor's note: As usual there's a lot of logic fail and false history in this last bit from Pearl on teenage boys. I think day-dreaming is pretty normal for any teens, or just folks in general. It's no sin. Equating mothering with castration is a stretch at best, but Michael's warning that men were turned into eunuchs in the dark ages to be servants is an out and out lie. Castration was usually a punishment or something that happened to prisoners of war, not wholesale on male servants. The exception being those that worked in harems. Michael Pearl misunderstanding history yet again. His version of 'real boys' sounds sort of horrifying. No h … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Boys Equal Messy House?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Mother's BoysEditor's note: Welcome to another episode of 'Cognitive Dissonance with Nancy Campbell'. Remember all that recent lecturing and hectoring by Nancy that you must keep your house immaculate while smiling and controlling your thoughts? Apparently that does not apply in her world if you have a pile of boys to raise. She just cannot make up her mind what is and isn't the most important. Plus generalizations about the sexes don't help anyone. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Adrenaline Rush Staves Off Sexual Impurity?

by Shalom Pearl Brand from No Greater Joy - Adrenaline RushEditor's note: I guess at least she didn't try to shame the other type of boy by saying they have a tendency to homosexuality or, as her father might term it 'Sissy-dom' My question is this: Is that adrenaline rush she keeps speaking about really a necessary thing for a boy to experience and does it even have anything to do with developing a passion for a pursuit? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How to Raise ‘Cowardly’ Boys?

by Nicole Cook of Nancy Campbell's Above Rubies - Raising Godly Sons in an Ungodly WorldEditor's note: Interesting this woman says this considering so many men in the world of quiverfull seem to be weak, whiny guys that seem to think everything in the outside world threatens their masculinity. I guess if you're not very sure of your own masculine to begin with you will see threats everywhere, even in being as well-groomed as many men they define as 'metro-sexual'. She sounds as though she's equating cowardliness with homosexuality. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 14 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: We're returning to Michael Pearl in only one day due to the fact that Ladies Against Feminism, Desiring God, Nancy Campbell and others are very busy screaming that the recent Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality means either hard core Marxism is coming or that God is lifting his hand of protection off the United States so that we'll soon experience God's wrath via some happening. Life is hard enough without listening to or entertaining their martyrbating. This is the last bit from Part 2 of Michael Pearl's series Jumping Ship. In this bit Michael tries to say that acting like a boyish animal-abusing jerk is … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Men Not Wimps?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Do You Have Sons? As he was nearing death, David encouraged his son, Solomon with these words, "Be thou strong therefore, and show thyself a man" (1 Kings 2:2). The HCSB translation says, "Be strong and be courageous like a man." I like the Knox Version. Wherever it talks about being strong and courageous, he translates it, "Play the man." In other words, to act like a man means to be strong and courageous. … [Read more...]
