Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – This is the Damage Female Cultural Enforcers do in Quiverfull

by an anonymous letter writer to Ladies Against Feminism’s Lori Alexander on her personal blog Always Learning – Taking Responsibility For Her Own UnhappinessEditor's note: Here's the final bit. I personally find it disturbing that she's sometimes praying for her husband 'through gritted teeth'. To me that indicates that nothing has actually really changed in her marriage, only in her own mind by denial of needs and emotions and forced cheerfulness. We all know how that works out in the long run. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – This is the Damage Female Cultural Enforcers do in Quiverfull

by an anonymous letter writer to Ladies Against Feminism's Lori Alexander on her personal blog Always Learning - Taking Responsibility For Her Own UnhappinessEditor's note: Shout out to Debi Pearl in this bit. While what the letter writer is describing in her marriage sounds good, like they've managed to get back on track in a healthier way. Especially good is her responding in a better way to her husband's chronic health condition. What she's not said, only hinted at, it's because she is submitting to her husband to an unhealthy degree and suppressing her own emotions and needs. Typical Quiverfull, fix the marriage by pretending everything is perfect once you start doing 'Biblical … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Emotions Make Women Lazy?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - 7 Steps to Dealing With a Lazy WifeEditor's note: Now Larry is claiming you set a bad example for the children when you let mom slack. Also his comparison of a mother making the kids clean their rooms while she has a sinkful of dirty dishes and a pile of dirty clothes isn't necessarily an awful thing. It takes, what, five minutes to load the dishwasher and about that long to load the washer. It's like comparing apples and oranges. What Larry doesn't seem to get is that there might be a good legitimate reason why the dishes and clothes are stacked up that has nothing to do with laziness. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Emotions Make Women Lazy?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - 7 Steps to Dealing With a Lazy WifeEditor's note: I know, I know... Larry's words are toxic and vomit-inducing but there's just so much so wrong that I'm quoting more than I usually would with Larry.  Notice too that his words in this piece dovetail with the thought and words of Michael Pearl in Aletha's latest review of 'Created To Need A Help Meet' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Any Other Man’s Attention Wrecks Your Marriage?

by Becky Thompson of BeckyThompson.com – Beware of Quicksand: How One Stranger’s Comment Changed My Marriage ForeverEditor's note: This last bit makes me feel sad for the author. Marriage shouldn't be a battlefield that you're constantly having to toil at to make work. If it's that much work and stress it's not much of a marriage there to revive. Sometimes a kind comment has nothing to do with attempting to turn your heart towards anyone, it's a small thing done by someone that sees you're having some sort of issue that day, or senses you need a little bit of a lift to get through your day. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 Disobeying Your Visionary Husband?

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy – Lazy Husbands, Hungry Kids and Hopeful WivesEditor's note: And now we look at a few comments on Michael's starts out good advice before going nuclear toxic. Yes, many commenters stroked his ego, but a surprising number claimed to have been in the same exact situation. Sickeningly enough there were a number of commenters that accused the original letter writer of being a whiner who is throwing a pity party. So much for the love of Jesus I guess. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 Disobeying Your Visionary Husband?

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - Lazy Husbands, Hungry Kids and Hopeful WivesEditor's note: If this wife left her husband she would likely be eligible for food stamps, housing assistance and other government help to keep the kids from starving and help her find a job. Any man unwilling to support his family is either a) selfish, b) mentally ill, or some combination of the two, not worth sticking around for. Let's see what Michael advises. … [Read more...]
