Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Nagging and Your Husband Will Stop Watching Porn?

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Nagging and Your Husband Will Stop Watching Porn? August 20, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Todd Friel from Wretched TV – A man stops watching porn after his wife stops nagging him

Editor’s note: This guy claims he’s like the Christian version of Jon Stewart and seems to think his online show is the Christian equivalent of ‘The Daily Show’. Not even close. What he is seems to be a snarky-esque hipster version of Pat Robertson. Here he’s claiming that the way to get your man to stop with the porn is by your kindness and submission. Has that ever really worked for anyone you’re known? Or is it just a piece of Christian mythology?

From a letter: “I saw her genuine heartfelt desire to exemplify Christ, her admittance of sin, her tenderness and compassion towards me and I was drawn to the peace that she had. I found this irresistible and convicting — this Jesus Christ. I couldn’t wallow in my own guilt and shame anymore. I couldn’t continue in this sin and truly say I was following Christ – things were not matching up.”

She became kind, he became convicted.

    Is that Bill Nye, the Science Guy’s weird prosperity preacher brother?

  • Can’t be. Surely any parents with the gene set that gave the world Bill Nye would be biologically incapable of producing this git.

  • Sasak

    Bad Advice!! No Christian husband would do the same if the shoe was on the other foot. He would divorce his unfaithful wife, and rightfully so.

  • Sasak

    He’s not a prosperity teacher but this is bad advice.

  • BondGurl7

    I figured he isn’t really a prosperity preacher, but he has the same speech patterns and mannerisms as one.

  • BondGurl7

    Lol, you’d think, but look at all the strangely different siblings in the world…

  • Mel

    I think there was a tiny nugget of truth hidden in all the random Christian-ese.

    Change in the husband’s life started when the wife stopped being codependent. She realized – in a weirdly supernatural way, but whatever works – that she was not bound by her husband’s sins and she’d be unable to stop them.

    Once she let go of that, she was able to enjoy her life while her husband realized she expected him to man up and deal now or in the afterlife.

    Geez. It’s almost like God interacts with each person, not just the man of the house.

  • Mel

    So far, he’s not a prosperity teacher. Give him a few years and a decent cash flow and he’s got all the makings of a new prosperity preacher.

  • Antoinette Herrera

    Love it when creeps like Mr Friel go out of their way to blame wives for their husbands’ troubles. Is the man of the house cheating? The wife’s not making herself available. Is he spending time (and money) at bars and/or strip clubs? She’s being a nag, and letting her looks go, too. Is he treating her like trash? Well, she did something to usurp his authority as head of the household. And so on…I wonder if Jim Boob and Tribble would send this to Anna, as a not-so-gentle hint to make nice.

  • Rachel

    Oh my, I used to watch that show with my mom when I was a Christian. Not surprised at all.

  • Harry Flashman

    Anna Duggar is clearly not submissive enough

  • BobNewbySuperHero

    Yeah, because dudes who are watching BDSM porn or DP porn or chick on chick porn are totally gonna give that up when they feel the love of a bearded man through their wife…. please.

  • Poster Girl

    Anyone who’d compare to this ranting preacher boy (well, old man) to Jon Stewart has NEVER seen Jon Stewart.

  • Allison the Great

    Truth. I tried to watch one of this man’s videos on Youtube. He’s far from funny.
