Quoting Quiverfull: Defending Doug Wilson’s Sexual Abuse Advice?

by Anonymous from Women Freed - I Don't MindEditor's note: Obviously with every group, toxic or harmless, there will always be supporters that will behave like blood-lust crazed weasels when their sacred totem is dissed in any way. This site - Women Freed - is just that, the defense squad of women of Doug Wilson's Christ Church in far-flung Moscow, Idaho, read to pounce on those that see the illogical and harm in his ego-centrist version of theology. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Blame Yourself For Sexual Abuse, But Don’t Blame Others?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - The Danger of Self-RecriminationEditor's note: A confused mess of semi-victim blaming and some warnings about not being bitter, not blaming others and not blaming oneself for what happens. This man is simply ridiculous. … [Read more...]

Why Aren’t Christians Outraged by Sexual Abuse?

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comBecause I wrote an article for Relevant a while ago (“What Christians Get Wrong about Sexual Abuse“), every so often I get e-mails from their editors asking for pitches on specific topics. This week, they asked for an article titled “Why Aren’t More Christians Outraged by Sexual Harassment Scandals?”, referencing the recent firing of Bill O’Reilly for sexually harassing women at Fox News. I pitched them something, and they published it yesterday. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Turn it All Over to God or Turn Into a Lesbian?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Made PreciousEditor's note: A very twisted take on 'Let go and let God' in the unquoted part Wilson tells his fictional sexual assault victim to do just that because God will punish her attacker for being unrepentant. So apparently being squeamish about sex after being sexually abused leads to all sorts of crazy things in Wilson's mind. The only solution being turn it all over to God. No real concrete advice, like therapy, just turn to God. That's not always the best way to heal abuse, why not turn to God as your own beliefs lead you AND get therapy? Why is therapy always so threatening to these guys? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sexual Abuse Victims Get Used to Harm the Church?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - On Setting the BoneEditor's note: Gaslighting by a Pastor. Continuing on in Wilson's series of letters to a girl that was sexually abused by her father. He compares what he tells her to the unpleasant setting of a broken bone with many complications, painful and unpleasant. I'm guessing it's been years or never since he's had a compound fracture and he does not realize that they use drugs to make it less nasty now. He goes on to claim that the biggest danger is from those that would use what happened to her to harm the church since her father was in church leadership. This is pure silencing techniques and gaslighting!My prayer is that NO ONE who … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rejecting God After Sexual Abuse is Embracing Your Abuse?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - On Not Throwing Away What You Do HaveEditor's note: Victim-blaming in a different way, but just as sick. No, you are not responsible for the sexual abuse that happens to you. It does not define who you are, it is not your fault, it is understandable that you would be upset with a deity that could have stopped it but didn't. Not wanting to worship that same deity is not you embracing what happened to you! … [Read more...]

Josh and Anna Duggar Expecting Again

Guessing that all the rumors of a divorce between reprobate Ashley Madison member Josh Duggar and his long-suffering wife Anna aren't so true. It was just reported that the couple announced that Anna is pregnant with another son on one of the official Duggar blogs. Here's a screen cap of the announcement:Here's hoping things go well? That Josh doesn't cheat or treat her poorly?Have to say while this is not unexpected since there have been rumors since Thanksgiving that Anna was pregnant again, this feels so sad. Poor Anna.Anna must have taken the advice posted in Michelle's blog again and again in the aftermath of Josh's exposure to heart. Michelle kept reposting her advice … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Silencing Sexually Abused People in the Church?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Sexual Abuse: Church Coverups Don't Justify Witch HuntsEditor's note: One of the more sick and twisted things to come from the writings of pastor Tim Bayly. One part making ridiculous claims about women, one part 'Just shut up about sexual abuse' silencing, and one part revisionist history. The church has already proven that in this issue they cannot be trusted to do the right thing. Too many times sexual abuse by those in power at the church has been swept under the rug and the victim blamed. As long as this is the way church leadership handles sexual abuse the media and websites need to call for reform. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christian Women Should Not March?

by Andrea Schwartz as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism and originally posted at The Kingdom Driven Family - Why Did They March?Editor's note: The italicized emphasis below is entirely mine. It is the part that LAF chose to cut out of their quoting of Ms. Schwartz along with everything else in her article in order to make her words fit with their own agenda. While the original author's assumption that every women who marched in the Women's March did so because of their stance on abortion or that they were a victim of sexual assault the actual article makes some good points. It's a good starting point for Christians to consider the effects of sexual abuse on us all. Quite a far place from … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Helping or Inappropriately Preying on Naive Women?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?!? - Nightmarish Memories of Nursery HellEditor's note: We have shared parts of this post before. It's Zsuzsanna Anderson's recital of their time at Jack Schaap's church, First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana and at the Hyles Anderson College. Most of the post is her reasons why day care and even church nursery is a bad idea but then Zsuzsanna relates this rather creepy story rife with sexual abuse about Dr. Streeter. … [Read more...]
