News: Northwest Arkansas Newspaper Suing For Copy of Duggar 911 Call

news

Back in May during the fallout over the child molestation done by Josh Duggar someone reported concerns for one of the children to the local DHS. A social worker tried to visit the home and was denied access to the child in question and the home by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Faced with no other choice in an ugly situation the social worked dialed up 911 and asked for law enforcement help in their investigation. Pretty straightforward situation, right? … [Read more...]

Father’s Day, Undeserved

JoeSands

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous Circumspection.(Editor's note: Originally posted in 2011. For the record Joe is a wonderful father and a pretty amazing guy. But this piece so clearly illustrates how Quiverfull hurts men and children too.)If I could have been around during the time of the ancient Egyptians, I might have begged them to create a 364 day year, rather than a 365.  In my view, for me anyway, Father’s Day can skip right on by, unnoticed.  I do not deserve it in the least.Before any of my readers boot up some comments that vehemently disagree with the above statement, let me explain.  By the end of this post, you will agree with my premise and run me … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Love Being Home Or Else?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - What Is Your Favorite Place?Editor's note: Again Nancy spends a lot of time making sure that women know they have to have a good attitude, no negative thoughts or emotions or ELSE! She makes no allowance for those fundamentalist homes where there are 19 children in a two bedroom home under 1500 square feet or if there are serious issues with housing everyone safely or in a pleasant way. It's all shut and smile even if you live in a ramshackle hovel. … [Read more...]

Memories of My Own Cognitive Dissonance: Gothard’s Doctrine of Grace as an Example

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from Under Much Grace originally posted in 2010In so many words (!), I’ve already shared what cognitive dissonance felt like after some exit counseling and realizing that not everything I’d believed had been true.I’d like to discuss a bit more about the process that facilitated my acceptance of Gothard’s take on grace (and other ideas introduced at the Institute of Basic Life Principles conference I attended). I only briefly mentioned it in this post. Cognitive dissonance was easy to ignore for me when I first accepted his views, but when I revised my understanding after I left the spiritually abusive system; I had no other option but to let the process … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Children Are Foolish?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Foolishness or WisdomEditor's note: Here Debi ignores the fact that not properly feeding kids is child abuse, neglect and setting them up for a lifetime of struggling with eating disorders. She thinks it teaches children to be deceitful, which is considered so much worse than the fact that the parents are legally abusing and neglecting the child. Parents with obese children get blamed too. Debi lots to throw shade at everyone before reverting to the Pearl cure-all, a whipping with 1/4 plastic plumbing line, the same implement of torture that has played a role in the deaths of Lydia Schatz and Hana Grace Williams.ETA 3:30 pm - Whoever it is that … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is a Man’s Infidelity Always The Wife’s Fault?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the sadder things that has happened after Josh Duggar's infidelity was exposed is the number of Christians expressing the idea that a wife is always responsible when the husband has sex with someone else during their marriage. It's an idea that has been mentioned even in the mainstream media, that poor heartbroken betrayed Anna Duggar is going to be blaming herself and it's likely the entire family will blame her. Like she doesn't have enough trauma and pain in her life this unBiblical theology point is going to add to that. It's already … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Children Are Foolish?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - Foolishness or WisdomEditor's note: While Debi starts with a caution not to be so heavy handed in your parenting she ends this bit by advocating spanking to drive foolishness out. She ignores a big red flag and writes it off as 'bad habits'. If your child is hiding food or sneaking around you to eat then you should really take that quite seriously because many times it is a sign that your child fears you will not feed him, it's linked to fears of food insufficiency.  Controlling a child by controlling ever morsel going into their mouths as discipline can create some pretty horrific eating disorders. … [Read more...]
