Josh Duggar’s Crimes Were Committed ‘BC’?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFor several days now I've been sitting back and watching many in the Christian community defend the indefensible - what Josh Duggar did as a 14 year old young man. It's mind boggling some of the leaps of faith and thought that have been expended to rationalize the sexual abuse against his young victims. This very afternoon I had a long phone conversation with a close personal friend that spent the entire time defending Josh Duggar and blaming this on evil liberals trying to besmirch God and God's people. There's just no reasoning with this mentality, refusal to think, or consider that any born again Christian might possibly do something so evil. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 2 How Do I Need Thee? (More About Women’s Nature)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpages 35-38Last time, I started on Chapter 4, which begins a huge list of the reasons men need their wives. Sometimes the text makes good points, yet the theme of every section seems to be something along the lines of "your wife needs you to need her. Your wife's womanly nature (from God) makes her want to meet your (as a man) needs. Let her. If you don't let your wife meet your needs, bad things will happen to you both. Plus emotional imbalance for you wife." I'm not even kidding. Go read last section. I'll wait. Back? Alright. Let's begin. Text, as always, is in purple. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Without Execution Victims Cannot Recover?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours?Editor's note: Everyone's favorite Holocaust denier (check out her latest posting claiming the Holocaust never happened) argues that you cannot begin to recover from sexual abuse if the abuser isn't properly punished via something like execution and without God. She's making some pretty big assertions there for someone with no experience in the field of recovery. She also seems to think that repentance of sins is not enough to be 'saved'. What type of gospel is being preached at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe?  Tomorrow the conclusion of Zsuzsanna's thoughts on crime, punishment and the Duggars.- Not all who are abused … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Josh Dugger Was Just Playing “Doctor”?

by Carrie Hurd, wife of pastor Patrick Hurd of Heritage Covenant Church in Weatherford, Texas posted on NLQ Founder Vyckie Garrison's Facebook page and reported on by Raw Story and many other media outlets.Editor's note: Now some of  the ten Hurd family children are trying to harass Vyckie on her Facebook for this and they're coming up pretty short.  None of them seem to realize that 'playing doctor' (normal childhood sexual exploration) is a far cry from touching sleeping girls inappropriately. Playing doctor involves consent of both parties. What Josh did tramples the notion of consent. Lack of consent makes what he did criminal.Backstory on all of this: … [Read more...]

The Duggars’ Moral Superiority: A Religious Right Stronghold, Exposed

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionThe Bible says, in Romans 3:23, "For the wages of sin is death..."This verse is very well known to both fundamentalist Christians, to which the Duggar clan belong, as well as evangelical Christianity. Sin is a big deal. It requires all humans to die. According to the book of Genesis, the fact that Adam and Eve ate the fruit of 'The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil', meant that sin was passed down to every human being. Sin was the one genetic thing that everyone got equally. … [Read more...]
