Quoting Quiverfull: Say No to Anything Not Home, Husband and Children?

by June Fuentes of A Wise Woman Builds Her Home - Cultivating a Rich Christian HomeEditor's note: While I will agree that super busyness is not a good thing for most folks, it has nothing to do with if you should be staying home submitting to your husband and homeschooling your children. Busyness is sometimes an excuse to avoid facing up to the real tough issues of life for many women and men. It's a bellwether mark of pressure, guilt and legalism in many Quiverfull churches that leadership puts on followers. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Summertime is Playtime That Mom MUST Supervise!?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Summertime: Yet Another Reason for Mothers to be Home Full-TimeEditor's note: While I think a mixture of down time to goof off and some structured activities for kids during their summer school break is likely the best way to go in no way does that always mean Mom has to stay home. This piece of Lori's is a hot mess of word salad, starting with blaming people with higher incomes for better summer educational outcomes, to describing her own childhood summers, to verklempting about day care and tax payers having to fund day care. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Blaspheme When You Work Outside of the Home?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Beautiful LifestyleEditor's note: So now Nancy is taking her theology to a scary strange place. She claims if you do not rejoice in staying home and being the most perfect, happy, joyous wife and mother while keeping your home perfect then you are blaspheming against God. Nancy does not provide any real scriptures to support this, acting like everyone should just KNOW this is God's intent for women.f … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mothering For Eternity?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Look Beyond TodayEditor's note: As time goes on Nancy's messages on the effect of motherhood on all of history become ever more hysterical and filled with hyperbole. Is her influence slipping so much among her small sphere that she must increase her messages to a fevered frenzied fake pitch? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Women Hate Motherhood?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - There's a Big Difference!Editor's note: Nancy is busy making claims yet again that those that are educated and had or have careers before motherhood are hating motherhood, finding it frustrating and difficult. No studies or evidence of this beyond Nancy's claims of always stay home, never want anything beyond raising children. Same song with slightly different lyrics. Sorry, but motherhood isn't easy for anyone, Nancy, everyone experiences less than fun moments, frustrations and challenges, but it doesn't mean we're doing it wrong. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cats Are Better Mothers Than Feminists?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Inborn InstinctivenessEditor's note: There are several things about this post that just make my blood boil. 1. The phrase "And she is only an animal." as if the little cat is somehow a lesser being than Nancy and 2. the idea that working mothers that have to leave their children to be nurtured by others are not as maternal as her outdoor kitty. How insulting all the way around! Run, kitty, run! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Christian Queen by Being a Wife and Mother?

by Dr. J. G. Holland as quoted by Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies - Mother is QueenEditor's note: Nancy loves to quote long dead Christian theologists from the 1800s to support her messages of stay home, birth babies and worship your husband. Most of the same. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Motherhood Only Career That Matters Eternally?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Highest CareerEditor's note: Nancy pushes her main message yet again. What is it about women having choices, even simple choices like if you go to school or work outside of the home, that these people find so threatening? Isn't having a mother who feels fulfilled and happy better than having a mother who's resentful and upset all the time because she's doing something she doesn't want to do? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Entire Identity Is As A Mother?

by Steven L Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Effects of Birth ControlEditor's note: So much ignorance and fear mongering in a few short paragraphs. That bit at the end about green plasma caused by birth control pills is especially ridiculous considering there are also other circumstances that cause green plasma - the coloration is completely harmless.  It's not 'poisoning' like Anderson claims. He doesn't seem to realize that not every woman is cut to be a stay at home mother. It does speak to the fear of everything outside the canon of fundamentalism that drives churches like the IFB. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Steals Your Joy?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Effects of Birth ControlEditor's note: That sermon transcript archive at Faithful Word Baptist Church is like Christian in July, a treasure trove of misspelled, grammar-mangling, bad ideas, bad Bible translations pile of crazy. There's nothing that exposes the under-educated belief system of a Independent  Fundamentalist Baptist Church. Another pastor doubling down on the message of no birth control ever, have as many kids as possible and women should always stay home. It's a good thing that the Marie Curies of this world didn't follow that advice or we'd have been deprived of many useful things, theories and science. … [Read more...]
