Quoting Quiverfull: Let Your Friends and Family Pick Your Mate?

quotingquiverfull

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - How the Modern Practice of Christian Dating is Cruel to Men as always linked through Do Not LinkEditor's note - Larry finally comes out and spells out the only way in his mind for two people to decide to marry, by committee meeting. Followed by a quickie wedding so Mr. Bridegroom can control his brain and his gonads. Such weak silly men in Mr. Solomon's world! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Characteristics of ‘Bad’ Patriarchs?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Peal of No Greater Joy - The Balanced PatriarchEditor's note: I wish I had a graphic of a full coffee cup smashing to the ground and splattering because that was my personal reaction to this list of characteristics of 'bad' patriarchs written by Michael Pearl. His list includes many things that he has espoused in his writings through the years. This is from 2009 answering a letter from someone claiming his book and article series that we featured early in the year 'Jumping Ship' only teaches children rebellion. Next up: the characteristics of a 'Good' patriarch. How deluded can one man possibly be? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cover Up You Temptress?

quotingquiverfull

by Lisa Jacobson as reposted by Daughters of the King - Avert Your EyesEditor's note: We've shared this piece of shaming and blaming before, but it bears revisiting in light of the sexual scandals in many churches and the budding rape culture in the worlds of fundamentalism, evangelical and quiverfull Christianity.  What about teaching young men to not think of women's bodies as pieces of meat meant for sex or sexual temptation, and to treat them like genuine people? Do you think that might end this sort of torment for this poor kid if he wasn't hyper-sexualized by purity culture? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Just Read Your Bible?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Vain JanglingEditor's note: God or Fate or whatever you chose to call it has been kind to NLQ and put up an entire transcript library of Anderson's sermons. This one is a lengthy word salad where he's basically claiming only someone who has read the Bible cover to cover many times, like himself, is qualified to preach. He knocks down the idea of anyone else there preaching. This little bit about reading on the internet is not the same as reading paper books and the Bible is interesting. There's a part also in the beginning of the sermon where Anderson states he doesn't believe in every word of the Bible, that some of the stories, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Be Silent In Church Matters?

quotingquiverfull

by Tim Bayly from The Bayly Blog - Rachel Miller and Valerie Hobbs: Where is the Apostle Paul When We Need Him?Editor's note: Tim Bayly is having what sounds like a ridiculous foot-stomping whiny little hissy fit over the fact that women - W-O-M-E-N - have opinions, options and leadership positions in churches over men. What is it about these weak Christian men that the moment a woman has an opinion they act like someone is trying to cut their penises off with a dull meat cleaver? It does not say anything positive about their shaky grasp of masculinity. Relax, Tim, women aren't out to 'get' you. What did these two women do to invoke the petty behavior of Tim Bayly? Why they openly … [Read more...]

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...]
