Quoting Quiverfull: Sexually Assault Victims Need to Buy a Gun?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - An Unfair WorldEditor's note: So there's just too much awful to quote it all in one sitting. The unquoted bits claim there are two types of people in the wake of bad things happening, the resentment approach or the responsibility approach (which sounds like the real victim blaming from here). Guess which one that Dougie-Boy is pushing? Responsibility approach, where later on he advises this poor supposedly rape victim to tell anyone trying to push what he calls the resentment approach that she's buying a gun and getting a concealed weapon permit. He goes on to whine that those evil secularist 'Resentment' folks are accusing him of 'Victim-Blaming." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rejecting God After Sexual Abuse is Embracing Your Abuse?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - On Not Throwing Away What You Do HaveEditor's note: Victim-blaming in a different way, but just as sick. No, you are not responsible for the sexual abuse that happens to you. It does not define who you are, it is not your fault, it is understandable that you would be upset with a deity that could have stopped it but didn't. Not wanting to worship that same deity is not you embracing what happened to you! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Black Men Deserve to be Shot by Police?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles -How Can We Blame Police For Having Bias Against Blacks? (not linking directly to Larry but this is the top post on his site)'Editor's note: As I stated in the Facebook Live video yesterday this has been a personally disturbing week for me, complete with huge triggers because of the officer-involved shootings this week. As this keeps happening I find myself getting more and more upset, frightened for the black community especially, but really for everyone. This could happen to anyone. It did happen to someone I knew in my tiny town four years ago. I've been upset this week, depressed and crying, feeling hopeless, which is why there was not much … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 Questioning the Pearls

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine – But I Wanted to Ask Mr. PearlEditor's note: Horrific that Michael Pearl is doubling down on his 'beat them' theory of child training even for children with conditions like ADHD. Nothing like making sure the kid obeys the patriarch's whim above all else, including the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of a child. … [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...]

“How To Win Over Depression” – review – 137 – 159

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Books like this make it almost impossible for me to believe that there’s any meaningful difference between fundamentalism and more mainstream evangelicalism. Theologically there’s no real difference that I’ve ever been able to find, and all the differences I can find are surface trappings. In my view, fundamentalism and evangelicalism are on a sliding scale of how much modern culture they’re willing to adapt; fundamentalists are just stuck in the 60s while evangelicals are stuck in the 90s. … [Read more...]

Redeeming Dinah: The Errors of Ron Williams, the IFB, and Gothard’s Esteem of Rabbinical Writing as Holy Writ

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from Under Much GraceEditor's note: In light of everything that has come out about the Duggar family and Josh Duggar's molestation of his sisters it might be a good thing to revisit what Bill Gothard and others connected with the IFB think about defiled females. This was originally published in 2011.On April 8th, only twelve days ago, ABC's 20/20 aired an episode entitled, Shattered Faith, which focused on the physical and sexual abuse of young women within the Independent Fundamental Baptist affiliated churches (IFB). It also mentioned the powers attributed to the use of the rod of discipline found in Proverbs and the literal translation about the … [Read more...]

The Duggar Story – Thoughts and LInks

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch The ShepherdDear friends,My heart is so weary and grieved. Again. Reports of child molestation by a member of the Duggar family (19 and Counting reality TV show) have hit the national news, and my Facebook feed has been exploding. Again. Yet another representative of the large family & home schooling movement caught in a devastating sexual scandal. It doesn't just hurt because I am a Christian mama of 10 who has been home schooling nearly 25 years. It hurts because the lives of so many of my dear relatives and friends have been badly wounded or utterly destroyed by pedophiles and other abusers. … [Read more...]

What One IFB Apologist Thinks of People Who Claim They Were Abused

by Bruce Gerencer cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserWhen Jack Schaap, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana, now a convicted felon,  was accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenager in his church, apologists for the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church movement and the Hyles/Schaap crime family came out in force to defend their own. They told me things like:He is a man of God and he wouldn’t/couldn’t do such a thing The girl was a whore The girl seduced him The girl was “almost” of age If Schaap hadn’t taken her across the State line, the sex would have been consensual … [Read more...]

On Disguising Logical Fallacies in ‘Feminist’ Arguments

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons While the following may not be a completely universal experience, in my experience it tends to be a common one: when a rape victim starts talking about their experience (especially on the internet), inevitably someone somewhere is going to say something along the lines of “you need to take responsibility for your own choices that led to this.” And then they are shocked– shocked, I say– when someone responds with “stop victim blaming us.” After all, how could they be victim blaming? Didn’t you just hear them argue for agency and autonomy? They are the real feminist in this conversation because real feminists “acknowledge that … [Read more...]
