Quoting Quiverfull: The Two Hundred Year Plan To Keep Your Family Large And Poor?

Quoting

by Vaughn Ohlman of True Love Doesn't Wait -What's In Your 200 Year Plan?Editor's note: Don't know how many of you here have heard the '200 Year Plan' taught at your church but at one point in Evangelicalism it was a pretty popular idea. The one time I heard it preached from the pulpit I remember thinking that it seemed like the ultimate in control freak master planning. Out of Mr. Ohlman's writings about this two parts jumped out as awful. In his eyes this is all about making sure the children marry as soon as possible and breed the grandkids without one thought for how they are going to support all those grandkids. Very short-sided thinking. … [Read more...]

News: Josh Duggar Articles and an Apology

Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

Rather than recap a few and keep editing new ones in I'm going to provide a daily round up of articles until TLC does the right thing and cancels "19 Kids & Counting" Right now they've pulled all reruns of the show until June 1st. The first of next month they start airing the show again. No decision on if they will pull the show permanently or just axe Josh from the show and continue on.From TMZ: Josh Duggar on the Chopping BlockDiscussion on if they will continue the show without Josh on it. Apparently TLC is reluctant to let go of their fecundity-laced cash cow even if a crime was committed and they're showing possible victims. Mammon above all. TLC and the Duggars worship the … [Read more...]

On Being Silenced

samantha

by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I have a lot of experience with being told to shut up. I’m used to being ignored, dismissed, thrown out. Being an outspoken, opinionated girl and then young woman in Christian fundamentalism leaves one feeling stifled, and it’s a sensation I hate. The one thing that will guarantee that I get so pissed at you that I never speak to you again is to dismiss me when I’m talking about something that I believe matters. That reaction comes from a lifetime of experience in a cult, watching the people I cared about being told to shut up and color any time they had a problem with something. One of the lessons that I’ve learned extreme … [Read more...]

image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerAfter yesterday's shocking news that Josh Duggar, eldest son of TLC's reality television stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, confessed to sexually assaulting underage girls during his teenage years you'd think that The Learning Channel might have decided to do the responsible thing and not show last night's regularly scheduled “19 Kids & Counting” episode.In fact, they did nothing of the sort. Instead they chose to air a “19 Kids & Counting” marathon, rife with Josh-centric episodes. … [Read more...]

It’s Okay, Josh Duggar Is An Alleged Pedophile, But He’s Not Gay

by S. J. Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoUpdated: I think no one picked up on the fact that Ms. Reidhead was speaking sarcastically and everyone believed in the seriousness of her words, leading to many nasty things being said in the comments. This piece is meant to be tongue in cheek and flip. Comments disabled until things calm down. We all owe the author an apology.(Editor's note: Author mentions Kate Hunt and if you're like me and not sure who she is or what happened with her there is more here and here. As always, views expressed are the author's views.)Josh Duggar is not gay.  It’s okay, he’s just an alleged pedophile who has allegedly molested 4 of his … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull Part 2 – Michael Pearl Answers Critics of “To Train Up A Child”

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - It's The Book's FaultEditor's note: Here Michael starts to point fingers back at the letter writer and diagnose her with various things like a 'legalistic spirit'. Nice try, blaming and shaming someone asking for clarification on your abusive child training methods (that is if the letter wasn't penned by Michael or Debi, which is unlikely.) Whenever I post Michael Pearl here I am reminded of a great blues classic song 'Sayin' Don't Make It So' This is going to be one of those multi part series so that you can count the inconsistencies uttered by Mr. Pearl. … [Read more...]
