Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Men Must Be Forced into Men’s Roles in the Church?

by Jason Allen from The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood - 5 Key Ways to Cultivating Biblical Manhood in Your ChurchEditor's note: This all boils down to 'we are penis possessors so we MUST rule' I think it's going to take more than these proposals to make men take more active roles in church leadership.

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Making My Husband Sin?

by Melissa from Far Above Rubies - Two Years Later, My Heart Still AchesEditor's note: You remember this lady, don't you? Her piece on how her teenage son was tempted and tried by all the slutty sluts around him daring to wear swimsuits and shorts? She's updated her thoughts and it's more doubling down on the toxic message that women make men sin by not being 'modest' enough. Messages like these make me so angry that marching down the street naked starts to look like a good option (not really, I don't want to frighten my townfolks, but you get my drift..) … [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: Characteristics of ‘Bad’ Patriarchs?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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...]
