Quoting Quiverfull: Infidelity Is The Wife’s Fault?

Quoting Quiverfull: Infidelity Is The Wife’s Fault? September 7, 2015

quotingquiverfullBiblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com – Five Reasons Josh Duggar and Other Christian Mean Fall Into Sexual Immorality

Editor’s note: We knew this would be one of the ‘go to’ reasons by BGR, the wife not giving out the sex and kind of sex that the man is supposedly hard-wired by God to desire. That’s sort of like blaming a head of lettuce when you’re dieting, you slip and eat a doughnut. It’s not the head of lettuce’s fault, it’s yours for not controlling your unhealthy desires. Just glad he doesn’t say it’s right to cheat when you’re not getting the amount and type of sex you want.

Because their wives have sexually denied them

Some men because their wives sexually deny, or severely restrict how often or what ways they may have sex feel justified in seeking sex with other women. In their hurt and frustration they act out in sinful ways. But one sin never justifies another. Just as a woman does not have the right to deny her husband sex because of sinful things he might be doing, in the same way a husband does not have the right to go out and have sex with other women because his wife is sexually denying him or not fully giving herself sexually to him. We don’t know if Josh’s wife was sexually denying him, but even she was this does not justify him going out and having sex with other women.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
