by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace(Please take note of embedded links for background information.) I’ve tried for more than 48 hours to write this, but having watched this scenario play out with other followers of Bill Gothard, it brings up so many disturbing emotions for me, I found myself too caught up in them.  As the media begins to report, Anna Duggar will share in the blame for her husband’s sins and divorce will be strongly discouraged if not demonized.  I’ve watched it happen with other people who follow this belief system, over and over again. … [Read more...]

Here Are 5 Misogynistic, Christian ‘Family Values’ Taught to Hypocrite Josh Duggar

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ Founder and published at Raw Story Vyckie Garrison was once a minor celebrity in the Quiverfull Movement, made famous by TV’s Duggar family. As a devout, Bible-believing Christian and the mother of seven homeschooled children, Garrison spent 16 years, with her husband, publishing a newspaper for families on a similar path.

Surprise, surprise: Josh Duggar had a couple paid Ashley Madison accounts during the same years he worked as executive director of FRC Action, the political arm of Family Research Council’s “traditional family values” organization. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Caring What Others Do In Their Bedrooms?

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Of Sodomy and MarriageEditor's note: Von is speaking here for the decision by the Supreme Court of the United State's ruling that all forms of civil marriage between two consenting adults of any sex are legal. For years many Christians have denied that they want to control every single minor aspect of others lives, but Mr. Ohlman outs that lie by claiming that they do want to control even what you do in the privacy of your bedroom with your significant other. Where in the Bible does it say to police the sexual antics of others? It doesn't. … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 45 – 62

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comThis chapter of Lies Women Believe (lies we believe “About God”) illustrates rather perfectly what I was talking about in my last post– how Christians taught me that my own heart can’t be trusted because it’s hell-bent on deceiving me.

Quoting Quiverfull: Is It Ever Appropriate To Hand Out Tracts?

by Trish Ramos of Fish With Trish - The Righteous Aren't Always As Bold As A Lion LOLEditor's note: You remember Trish, don't you? She's the one that said that when you see another woman wearing something you think is immodest you should go up to her and point at the immodest display part and say 'uh oh' before handing them a tract on modesty. She's also a big supporter and friend to the guy we posted yesterday who thinks he's Christianity's answer to Jon Stewart - Todd Friel. Here's my question between his show and her tracts - are there appropriate times and places to hand out tracts? What about at a restaurant when people are just trying to get their meal on? Where is the line between … [Read more...]

Duggar News in the Aftermath of Josh Duggar’s Confession

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne of the silliest things about the Duggar-verse is the fact that People Magazine cannot stop promoting this family in a positive light, even when there's nothing positive to say. On the day the news broke of Josh Duggar's memberships at Ashley Madison and OkCupid earlier that same day People published and released theirr latest issue that was seeking to promote the Duggars as the super righteous Christian family they've been pretending to be. Mere hours. It illustrated that clearly People magazine has some sort of big financial stake in the Duggars remaining on television. … [Read more...]
