Quoting Quiverfull: Working Women Are Blaspheming God?

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Women Are Blaspheming God? November 15, 2016

quotingquiverfullLori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Why Do I Hate Women So Much ~ A Woman Asks

Editor’s note: There is no truer example of the severe case of cognitive dissonance that reigns in Evangelical Quiverfull Christianity right now that is already starting to kill it off than Ms. Alexander’s post. Yes, she’s jealous of others. Yes, she belittles and puts down other women. Yes, she’s insulting and hateful. No, she cannot admit it even when making extra-Biblical claims that working women are blaspheming God just by working. NOWHERE in the Bible does it state that and in Biblical times women worked beside their husbands or other family members or, like the woman in Proverbs 31, worked for themselves. I think it’s likely to be a safe bet to think that some women in that time worked for others too. This isn’t a new development. What is a relatively new thing, a product of Victorian upper class Anglo-Saxon morality, is that wives and mothers must stay home.

Notice also the word choices of the author in this piece ‘Stupid’, ‘Blaspheme’, ‘Hate’, ‘Despise’ and ‘Belittle’ – Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth, or in this case the fingers, speak. Her own words make her claims a huge lie.

Yes, I am asked stupid questions like this.

“Why do you hate that women can have jobs and earn their own money?” Titus 2:5 states that younger women should be “keepers at home’ so “that the word of God be not blasphemed.” Therefore, they are blaspheming (speaking evil about) the Word of God if they are not keepers at home. Women ought to take this seriously because most Christian women I know don’t want to speak evil of God’s Holy Word. I also hate the consequences of women working outside of the home. Children are being raised by people who are not their mothers. Marriages are falling apart since working mothers are exhausted after working all day away from home. I know since I did it the first two years of my oldest daughter’s life and was continually exhausted and wasn’t a good wife, mother, or teacher. I don’t like that women are now submitting to and obeying their bosses and have no problem with this but refuse to treat their husbands, their heads, in the same way. I hate that earning money and having more stuff is more important than raising their own children to many women today.

“Why do you despise yourself so much that you must belittle every other woman?” I belittle every other woman?

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.
