Truths?[edit]

We should probably be fair and point out that maybe five or six of these really are true, though probably not for the reasons given in the book. Any suggestions? WazzaHello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me... 06:25, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

I would like to do a side-by-side, but I want to be sure that I am not misreading any of the points, which involves actually getting the book rather than just looking at the small part available as a preview, and my local public library has just one copy in the whole system, on which there are 13 holds, so I might have to wait the better part of a year to get hold of it.

Funny thing. When I looked up the book at the university library, the search yielded up one old tract entitled (hold your breath) Satans design discovered: vvho under a pretence of worshipping Christs person in heaven, would exclude God and Christ, the spirit and light, out of the world: and that he should no more dwell in his people as he hath done, till Doomsday, that so he might rule in the hearts of men and women, unrevealed, while the world endures, onely under the name of God and Christ, talked of at a distance, that he may rule in the creation, exalted above God. Clearly laid open in an answer to Thomas Moor, who calls his book an Antidote against the spreading infections, &c. Wherein is discovered the crooked ways the winding Serpent takes to save his head, and reproach the truth with lies, that by any means he might make people believe that a lying spirit is among the Quakers, but is found within him. With 48. lies, taken out from three times as many, and sent back to be proved by the founder of them, T.M. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 06:48, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
What's it about? WazzaHello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me... 08:40, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
I think it is a Quaker apologia. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 15:19, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
I agree with a lot of them, such as not changing or dominating a husband. Where do women get these ideas? I would really like to have a relationship, but all women are domineering creatures who prefer jerks.--Yuppie (talk) 20:53, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
I would really like to have a relationship - step one is to stop believing that all women are domineering creatures who prefer jerks. Bob Soles (talk) 21:07, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Step to is to stop being a jerk. something in "western european" society makes men act like jerks, even if they aren't that way. show... bravado... married men are so much less jerky and calm. but taken. ah the catch 22 Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 21:08, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

i have my rights![edit]

This is listed as a lie? really? you'd think even an uber christian allows women some rights. the rights not to be murdered when the husband is demanding she graciously submit, i suppose. WE should check that one.Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 21:01, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Wingnuts aren't particularly big fans of civil rights at all, except when they're on the receiving end of someone violating theirs (and even then, it's more about their privilege being checked). So I'm not surprised >:(. Sensual Endeavor, the sexy pony ;) (talk) 16:46, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Number 32[edit]

If I feel something, it must be true. Do these Christians seriously not see any problems with calling this a "lie?" Lord Aeonian (talk) 16:26, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Lies 2: Electric Boogaloo[edit]

should the other books in this "series" be included in this article? there's some equally stupid bs in each of them. (lie girls believe: being just a stay at home mom isn't the only thing i can do) (lies men believe: i don't have to have kids). additionally, i'm going to start working on a point by point analysis of each of the supposed lies in this list. if i mess up, please tell me.
