Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Christian Queen by Being a Wife and Mother?

Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Christian Queen by Being a Wife and Mother? February 3, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Dr. J. G. Holland as quoted by Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies – Mother is Queen

Editor’s note: Nancy loves to quote long dead Christian theologists from the 1800s to support her messages of stay home, birth babies and worship your husband. Most of the same.

Home based upon Christian marriage is so evidently an institution of God, that a man must become profane before he can deny it . . . Of this realm woman is queen. It takes its cue and its hue from her. If she is in the best sense womanly–if she is true and tender, loving and heroic, patient and self-devoted–she consciously or unconsciously organizes and puts in operation a set of influences that do more to mould the destiny of the nation than any man, uncrowned by power or eloquence, can possibly effect.

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.
