Quoting Quiverfull: Women Should Have No Rights?

by Steven L. Anderson as quoted by Church and State - Conservative Pastor Preaches That Women Should Be Banned From Voting And Confined To Their HomesEditor's note: Just like Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles Steven Anderson wants women to be owned property, owned by their husbands without any say or rights over their own lives. Very complimentarian and fundamentalist, this type of thinking sets up an environment where spousal abuse flourishes. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – ‘Star Wars’ Movie Series Message is Kill Christianity?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Star Wars in Light of the BibleEditor's note: There's just so much from this sermon that belongs here, but there's not enough room or time. I leave you with this, Steven ranting about Darth Vadar being pseudo-Jesus and Buddhism. Why does every single one of his sermons read like a demented justification for hating others, fearing the world and like the ravings of someone without a good grip on mental health? I've read all sorts of odd justifications for Christians hating Yoga but he's managed to come up with a new one here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – ‘Star Wars’ Movie Series Message is Kill Christianity?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Star War in Light of the BibleEditor's note: This entire long screen that is supposed to be a sermon has some of the strangest hateful points. 1) Star Wars leads to the acceptance of sexual predators, 2) It's Buddhist thought bent on destroying Christianity and 3) Hate, fear and anger are all Biblical emotions that every Christian should feel towards others. So much word salad! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The HPV Vaccine Gives Girls Permission to Have Sex?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Physicians of No ValueEditor's note: Regardless of how you line up on the to vaccinate or not vaccinate debate it's a stretch at best to say that vaccinating a child against a possible future STD is giving them carte blanche to go out and start having piles of promiscuous sexual activity with anything or anyone. He misses the point that the reason Gardasil is given is to protect girls against an STD that leads to high rates of uterine cancer later. There is a long term goal benefit.Most of Anderson's sermon can also be distilled down to don't go to the doctor except as a last resort and the Bible holds all the medical wisdom … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: French Caused Own Death?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church as quoted by Raw Story - Arizona pastor blames 'sinful' France and Death Metal for Paris terror attackEditor's note: I don't even know where to start with this one there's so much wrong, hateful, unChristian and blaming/shaming.... We've not posted about the Paris tragedy here at NLQ because while it's awful and a concern it's not really related to Quiverfull or Evangelicalism. But now that so many so-called 'Christians' have started pointing fingers, behaving badly and blaming the victims it's an issue for us. May the people of France and Lebanon be able to find their way to healing and wholeness in the aftermath and avoid guys like … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Pills Kill Babies?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Why Birth Control is WrongEditor's note: I don't know if I should laugh or be jaw-dropped over the fact that Anderson clearly has no real scientific idea how birth control pills actually work. They don't 'kill babies', the ones on the market now prevent the egg from ever leaving the ovary so that there cannot even be a fertilized egg must less a baby. The older pills prevented implantation of fertilized eggs. But an egg is not a baby, a long way from it. We've moved past that. Too bad his science knowledge has not. … [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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Why All the Hormone-Blaming?

by Steven L Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Being a Psalm 23 HusbandEditor's note: While some of what Anderson is saying below is true - there will be tough times in marriage - but he eventually goes to that place that Michael Pearl, Biblical Gender Roles and countless other patriarchs go: blaming a woman's hormones for adding to the bad times. Men please get a grip! Hormones aren't causing the strife in your marriage and aren't to blame for everything going sideways! Men have hormones too and be every bit as irrational and angry as the women they accuse. … [Read more...]
