Quoting Quiverfull: ANYONE Can Be an Astronaut, But SHOULD Be a Mother?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - Happy to Say 'I am a Wife and Mother'Editor's note: Lori is speaking of listening to Dennis Prager speaking on the radio about motherhood and how modern women give themselves fancy titles instead of wife and mother. Then she goes zigzagging about claiming that anyone can be an astronaut or anything else, discounting the educational levels and abilities that you must have to achieve those goals before jumping to the shame of breast feeding in public and being upset that the current administration might do something to help working mothers with daycare. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Spend Your Husband’s Money?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Dissipating Her Husband's SubstanceEditor's Note: Oh my! Lori is beating this dead horse/straw woman again. But we all know that she has no real idea how to manage family finances, real savings and investing. But the big point I think she's missing here is that many women have their own money and earn their own money. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Set That Table, You Lazy Woman?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Feed the Five SensesEditor's note: We've not quoted Nancy much lately because she's been on a single subject for a couple of weeks, just like she did last year over the idea of planting a garden - the importance of having dinner with the family at the dinner table. In this piece she starts out making up new rules about how you serve dinner. Edited out the part where she claims you must use a table cloth, candles and flowers to make the table 'pretty'. What does she think most stay at home mothers are doing all day? She must think they do very little to add more rules. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Selfish Mothers Abandon Their Kids to Daycare?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - InseparableEditor's note: Nancy wants to throw shame at those mothers that do anything other than hold their new babies and breastfeed them. What is wrong with reading a book or listening to music while holding your newborn as they sleep? What's wrong with allowing others to care for your child as you need? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Why Can’t Feminists Also Have Meek and Quiet Spirits?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - What Makes a Woman Feminine?Editor's note: Skipping a lot of quotes from the various Biblical commentaries that Lori used to justify her own thoughts on the subject. But here's the rub, there are women in the workforce out there that do fit the Biblical model of meek and quiet spirit, that go about their day peacefully blessing everyone they encounter. Why should the belief that men and women are equal automatically translate to loud boisterous behavior? It doesn't. This is another assumption by those outside of the workforce, like Lori. … [Read more...]

The Power of the Transformed Wife – Misunderstanding Proverbs 31 to Mean Stay Home and Clean

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWe're on Chapter 12 this week in Lori Alexander's confused and confusing tome on the role of submissive women in their families. The title is 'Keepers at Home' and it contains some doozies of toxic nuggets along with a willful misinterpretation of what the Proverbs 31 woman looks like.Let me state that this chapter coming right now in my life is seriously triggering to me. I am packing for an overseas move to Costa Rica. At the same time I am having my house slightly remodeled to rent the house out, new bedroom carpets and painted along with a few upgrades. I'm up to my eyeballs in boxes, dust, shreds of wallpaper being removed, someone else tearing out my … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Women Cursed?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Women Are ExaltedEditor's note: Nancy is back to claiming that working outside of the home is some sort of curse that will kill everything in your path instead of what it actually is, a choice every woman must make for herself. Nancy seeks to return everyone to the choice less world of the 1950s. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If You’re Not Quivering You Are Deceived?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Why The Opposite?Editor's note: According to Nancy any woman not having babies one after another for any reason is deceived, even those in church. The 'glory of motherhood'? Sorry, but it isn't for everyone and trying to make others think that it is their sole purpose on earth is just wrong. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rod of Motherhood?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Your Humble, But Miraculous RodEditor's note: Notice how Nancy is always promising a down through the generations victory if you just do motherhood her way? She manages to put down working mothers, modern society and anyone that does not do it her way. Failures are always blamed on some small deviation of the rules. Why not just be content to raise your children to be good people without worrying about the influence they will have on the world and future generations? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Politics, Only Motherhood?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Mothers Running For OfficeEditor's note: Lori tries to shame a lady running for political office. Plus anyone else that dares take off their smiling Stepford-mom mask and leave the home for any reason. I wonder if this lady was going spend time away from home volunteering at a church or pro-life anti abortion clinic if Lori's thoughts would line up the same way. Let's face it, women have been the engine that drives progress forward, be it at church, social issue groups, government and business. That's way too threatening for this simplistic worldview that justifies itself by twisting scripture.If you think this is bad please go the page … [Read more...]
