When We First Heard About Josh Duggar’s Crimes

Correction Screen caps from the blog - Bascha. This is the point where the rumors of Josh Duggar's bad behavior first emerged. The question I want to know is how could TLC have not known. This information has been online since at least 2007 and in some places even earlier. It is very likely that TLC is also complicit in burying the crimes of Josh Duggar in pursuit of the money to made. They should face consequences too. They've already added "19 Kids & Counting" back into their schedule starting on June 1st. TLC merely wants the money, they don't care about the actual victims. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 Michael Pearl Answers Critics of “To Train Up A Child”

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - It's The Book's FaultEditor's note: And so it ends, with junk science saying that we're all making it worse by eating fat and sugar AND for guilt bonus points, watching television. None of those three things causes the chronic fatigue Michael references. You know what does? Being driven like a mule with a cruel master to do everything, do it fast and do it immediately with no down time, sort of like that honeymoon from hell he put his wife through. … [Read more...]

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

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...]

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

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...]
