Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – A Woman’s Submission Determines Her Husband’s Success?

quotingquiverfull

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Are You Preventing Your Husband's Success?Editor's note: I'm afraid this isn't any better than yesterday's bit. She's still venturing into legal territory she has no business in. You cannot refuse to hire someone merely based on how their marriage appears to you from the outside. Interviewing people who know the family is pretty extreme and invasive. They might check the applicant's social media accounts, but not everyone in the family. She claims this is what large corporations does. No, no they do not. They may run psychological testing, such as a personality test to determine your honesty levels or to make sure you are emotionally stable. Some … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Don’t Withhold Sex To Change A Husband?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles. Com - Can a Christian Wife Withhold Sex As Way To Change Her Husband's Bad BehaviorEditor's note: You might want to sit down for this bit. BGR is claiming yet again that any time a man has sex with his wife it cannot ever be considered rape or sexual abuse. This stands in direct opposition to the established laws of our land. Or even the Bible. Where in the Bible does it clearly state that men are always allowed sexual access upon demand to their women? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Jeans and Short Hair Enslave Women?

quotingquiverfull

by Reagan Ramm from Reagan Ram.com - Modesty" A Guy's Opinion Part 2Editor's note: I don't think most of the women I know with short hair, myself included, do it to look 'masculine',to be like guys or because we've embraced a feminist message. Mostly women wear pants, jeans, tee shirts and short hair for comfort or expediency. Sometimes the simplest explanation for something is the correct one. It's not some anti-Christian plot no matter how they spin it. Is masculinity so weak and threatened in the church that it cannot survive anyone doing anything even slightly outside the dictates of fundamentalism? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Knitting and Kings, Prophets and Priestly Men?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Knittin' NateEditor's note: Sharing this because it seems like a particularly bad analogy of the whole King/Prophet/Priestly man teachings of the Pearls. Sadly enough the father losing it over the boy who likes to knit is not Michael Pearl. Michael would have likely forced the boy to do something manly for weeks, like break rocks, hunt animals or other macho endeavors to wipe away whatever he perceives as 'girly' or 'traditionally female.' Debi's take on it being alright to allow the boy to knit is almost liberal for her.Combined with last night's Vaughn Ohlman post about how you should teach your son masculine things like plumbing and balancing … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Fundamentalists Obsess About Modesty?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.First we have many different ladies and ministries calling modesty anything from floor length skirts to blending with the crowd in such a way that doesn't draw attention to yourself. Of course, in some Muslim countries modesty is defined by the burqa, but in fundamentalist Christianity modesty is a sliding scale, whatever your pastor decrees. Knee to collar bone covered with no short sleeves? Mennonite caped dresses disguising the shape of the breasts and bottom? Denim skirts and loose tees? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Body Is Only For Your Future Husband’s Eyes?

quotingquiverfull

by Beecher Proch from Girl Defined - Guy Thoughts: Come on Girl, Keep it Modest (thanks to Bruce Gerencser for posting about Beecher Good catch!)Editor's note: Lots and lots of slut-shaming/women-blaming at the original link even if the author admits that men at 100% responsible for where they put their gaze. Guessing he has no one around to yell 'Nike' for him to look at his shoes when some half-dressed temptress crosses his path. He fails to realize that no matter how much a pretty girl, or any girl, covers up there's always going to be a squad of guys sitting in the pews popping pocket rockets when they go by. It's NORMAL!!! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Making Women Bitter About Submitting?

quotingquiverfull

by Paul Washer from I'll Be Honest.com - Recovering Biblical WomanhoodEditor's note: At least the clearly CPM author seems to understand that how the man behaves affects the wife's ability to submit. But it is still a poisonous idea, the whole idea that one is dominant and the other submissive, it creates and drives a lot of misery for everyone involved. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lustful Leggings?

Quoting

by Veronica Partridge from her blog - Why I Chose To No Longer Wear LeggingsEditor's note: She says she is not trying to tell anyone else what they can and cannot wear, that this is about her journey and decision. But she is in an indirect way. Really. More nonsense about men unable to control their eyes, brains and penises. … [Read more...]
