Quoting Quiverfull: A Bird’s Eye View?

Quoting Quiverfull: A Bird’s Eye View? November 12, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy on many random postings

Editor’s note: While reading through NGJ this morning I found a trove of the most bizarre one paragraph postings by Debi Pearl and a female staffer. Sharing a few here for your entertainment and puzzlement. I know these are meant to be light hearted and funny but they are sort of horrifying.

Useless? – Mike named her. She may be named “Useless”, but Parker simply LOVES this dog. And she sure puts up with a lot from him.

How Hillbilly Can You Get? – One of our computer girls was shaving her legs down at the creek—all hillbillies do this— when along came a crawdad and bit her toe. Oh, no.

Bathroom Antics – Debi loves to scare people. She never tires of finding ways to startle folks. One of her favorite and most effective ways is to pound on the bathroom door when she sees the light on. She only does it to the girl’s bathroom, so, the men are spared.

The Great Fly Slayer – Mike came into the office this morning and told us he was throwing knives and split a Flying Ant in half. He is getting geared up for the World Championship Knife Competition in November.

Feeding the Pigs – Everyday NGJ takes all the leftover scraps from lunch and feeds them to the three hungry, ugly little pigs.

The Big Scream – The first time I heard “the scream” at the office, I didn’t know what was happening. That was the first week I was at Cane Creek. I didn’t know it was a common occurrence. Now I know that Debi, Johnny and Lizzy all love to scare people. When they would scare me I tried to remain calm but it didn’t always work. They would get me at the most unexpected moments. So I just always laughed; an adrenaline rush feels good every once in awhile.

Did you see the theme here? Frighten people for fun. Say nasty things about animals like name them ‘Useless’ and call them ‘Ugly’. Brag on the dumbest masculine goals for Michael. Granted, most of what was posted in the Bird’s Eye View was updates on the ministry mixed with health cures and recipes from the herb store, but these stood out.

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.
