Quoting Quiverfull: Praise All Men?

Quoting Quiverfull: Praise All Men? July 6, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Let’s Bash Men and Put Them in Their Place!

Editor’s note: The graphic that Ms. Alexander used in this piece just gives me pause because it’s so highly triggering, a fist coming right at the camera. Very inappropriate even for the subject of ‘male bashing’. The other problem is that she’s not really addressed the issue of how the original author she’s complaining about didn’t actually male bash so much as apologize for his specific sins against women and for the general sins of misogyny in Christianity. Yes Lori does hate women. She makes that clear in all her writings. That is the real disgusting thing here.

Women accuse me of hating women. How could I hate them when I spend so much time writing to them the ways of the Lord? I am a woman. I love being a woman. I have never had a desire to be a man nor do a man’s job. I am deeply satisfied with the way the Lord has created me. I understand the role He has given me and it is good. I love being feminine, however, I also respect men and their role in society. I love the men of my family and extended family.

I am, however, deeply saddened how male bashing is perfectly okay in our culture. I am even more deeply saddened how lukewarm the Church is becoming. It has watered-down God’s principles and His will for our lives. Here is an example. Have you heard of Lisa Bevere? To be honest, I don’t know much about her but someone pointed out an article on her blog. It was written by a man named Kris Vallotton and he bashes men by explaining all the horrible things men have done. He fails to name anything they have accomplished like invent and build everything that we are blessed with today. What about all the good Presidents, Leaders, and Preachers who were men? He conveniently overlooked them. Why did he bash men? In order to prove that women should be in leadership positions in the Church!

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.

    “Women accuse me of hating women. How could I hate them when I spend so much time writing to them the ways of the Lord?”

    We say that because your words are the equivalent of that brainwashing scene from “A Clockwork Orange” with Alex’s eyes prevented from blinking while he’s dosed with drugs and forced to watch appalling material.

    “How could I hate them when I spend so much time writing to them the ways of the Lord?”

    This rings of “I don’t want to hit you! I’m doing it to correct you because I love you!”

    Ugh.

  • Allison the Great

    Lori likes to insist that men are the only ones who have ever invented anything. She responded to a commenter on this post that says as much. I replied to her pointing out that, in the past, women have had their inventions hijacked by men, or they have invented things or written things but used a man’s name so that it would be considered for for patent or for publication. Shockingly, that comment was never published.

  • MillyPierce

    Considering that she probably uses WiFi to get her internet like most of us and that her cell phone probably has Bluetooth I wonder how she would feel knowing that those 2 things incorporate a radio guidance system which was invented by a woman, Hedy Lamarr.

  • Allison the Great

    I think I actually told her to remember to thank Hedy Lamarr for enabling Lori to even have a blog.

  • Abigail Smith

    I just bought this excellent book https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1615192255/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I think we could use it to point out her bad logic.

  • SAO

    Not to mention women didn’t get much of an education, were actively discouraged or forbidden to do “manly” things, like the kinds of things that lead to invention, and were often pregnant. You don’t have to go very many generations back in my family to get 13, 14 or 9 kids.

  • SAO

    Lori, maybe you think you are a friend of women, but you are constantly telling us to suppress our God-given abilities and force ourselves into the limited role you think is appropriate. With friends like that, who needs enemies.

  • Nea

    She’s a “friend” to women just like herself and a self-righteous pain to any others.

  • Nea

    Only men invent? She’d better stop using a computer (founded on work by Grace Hopper) and the Internet (founded on work by Hedy Lamarr).

    “How could I not be filled with Love when I spend so much dang time writing about it?”

  • MillyPierce

    It’s sad that most people don’t know that, I’m glad you do!

  • Allison the Great

    Thank you. You gotta give shout outs to your STEM ladies!

  • Astrin Ymris

    How can I be a racist, when I spend so much time writing to black people, advising them that they should always “know their place”? /sarc
