Quoting Quiverfull: Mighty Warrior Queens?

by Jen McBride from Old Paths - What Does Virtuous Really Mean?Editor's note: This is from the introduction to McBride's book 'Queen of the Home'. Skipped a great deal of this because it was Nancy Campbell-like parsing of word meanings in the original Hebrew and very pedantic boring. All of this begs the question of why do women in the CPM have to constantly come up with inflated claims about what a stay at home mother is instead of just accepting that sahm have existed going very far back and no one before this particular bunch ever added all these meanings to what they are doing? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – You Are Going Against God?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Selfishly Focused Upon ThemselvesEditor's note: Again I ask - who died and made Lori God's Right Hand? The teaching of young women by older women as talking about in the Bible happens best one on one in the churches, not shouting into the wind of the internet. Again she makes claims about studies citing various things without actually ever giving names of those studies or links. Sort of like Donald Trump when he floats a lie by starting with 'I heard'....If there are studies that prove what she's saying is true then the only way we can take her claims seriously is if she cites those studies. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Working Women Eat More Fast Food?

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Career Women Lead to Wasteful LivingEditor's note: By whose standards are working women leading wasteful lives? Quite the contrary, women in the workforce are doing some very important things. There are women doctors, lawyers and in all segments of the working world making things just a little bit better for everyone, including easing the onus financial burden placed on the under educated husbands in evangelical Christianity. Some women aren't  gifted in the areas of hearth and home and that's perfectly fine. Not everyone needs to stay home to find fulfillment and do themselves and their families a disservice when forced into a role they are … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Working Women Eat More Fast Food?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Career Women Lead to Wasteful LivingEditor's note: Wow, this has to be one of the worst pieces yet written by Lori Alexander, shaming, blaming and trying to tell others way to do right down to the tiniest minutia. But then again, it's rumored that Lori has a maid cleaning her house. Everyone would have time to cook if someone else cleaned, working or not. Also, many fast food places now have healthier options, like the salad she describes making at home. We'll be posting more from this disgracefully disrespectful piece in the morning. … [Read more...]

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...]
