News: Anna Duggar, the House Sale and Her Reaction to Michelle Duggar’s Blog Posting

It is starting to sound as if Anna Duggar has made a lucky escape from the Duggar household and not only is Michelle Duggar blaming her for Josh's infidelity but she likely wasn't given much choice in the sale of their home.First up, 'unnamed Duggar insiders' are saying that Anna Duggar is furious with Michelle Duggar. Why? Simple, once Michelle Duggar recycled her old rape-culturey advice about how only a wife can meet a man's sexual needs and the unspoken implication of if he cheats it's the wife's fault on the family blog Anna believes it was a message to her. Here's what the inside said as quoted by the Inquistr: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 9 – Every Woman A Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Glory, glory hallelujah, we finally reached the end of this pile of very bad ideas! So let's recap, having or showing any opinion that your husband is not the bestest thing EVER is you being a Jezebel. So even if you think he sucks mightily suck it up, shut your mouth and fawn all over him. No, nope, totally not a recipe for a horrible disaster of a marriage /sarcasm. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Patriarchs Can Fantasize About Other Women & Not Sin?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender - The Church, Women and BarbequesEditor's note: Yes, yes, BGR compares women to a consumable inanimate object in this post - thick juicy steaks. But he so routinely dehumanizes women to objects that's not even the shocking part. The shocking part of this entire thing is his claims that God is a-okay with you imagining having sex with your neighbor's wife. He's playing Bible Twister again! Anyone can play! Just take a verse out of context, claim is means something other than what most people think it says and then use it to make something sort of maybe at least a tiny bit morally squishy you do perfectly acceptable. Not that there's … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 8 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Wow, even for Debi Pearl this is an insane amount of toxic nonsense. Being dismayed or disappointed in any way with your husband's behavior is dishonoring God? Followed by calling the man a loser? Whatever happened to simply discussing things that annoy you with your spouse in a non-threatening matter-of-fact way? There are always going to be things about other people, even your husband that will hurt you, disappoint you or just get under your skin and making a mature attempt to get the other party to understand how that affects you is never a sin! … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 6 Mr. Steady (Encourage Your Wife — By Telling Her Her Role)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 97-98Text is in Purple Understanding Your Roles If Mr. Steady Turtle were to come out of his shell, what could he do immediately that would encourage his wife? First, you need to address her concerns that you are not spiritually minded and are not open to her. I have read her concern in thousands of letters. "He is not a spiritual leader. I just pray and pray that he will step up and do what God has designed him to do as head of our home. He won't even pray with the family at meals." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 7 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: And then Debi goes for the most common women-blaming, reducing to less than human theme - Its THE HORMONEZ! OH NOES!! But instead of saying how hormones make women less than rational she says that hormones make men manly, protective, dominating - all masculine and things society thinks are positive in men.  Followed by 'don't ever question your man' and 'you must show pleasure' Debi's usual bucket of codswallop. It still reeks. … [Read more...]

Redeeming The Duggars – Rebranding

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveI know, I know, you're probably cringing right now because I'm writing about TLC's Duggar family yet again. In some sense they are to me what Moby Dick is to Captain Ahab. I end up looking at just about every news article about them you could imagine. They were part of my leaving my old fundagelical Quiverful church. Actually, they were the very beginning of the healing process of my leaving.When I was on the fringes of leaving, when it was starting to dawn on me that much of what was taught at my old church verged on bullshit I started watching The Learning Channel's specials on the Duggar family, half gagging, half … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Wow, Debi really has a twisted understanding of exactly who and what the Proverbs 31 woman is. She's not sitting around praying, she's not running around teaching, she's not rushing about having 'fellowship' at all. She's doing what needs to be done to run her household and her business and it never mentions most of the crap on Debi's list of what a modern Proverbs 31 woman is. … [Read more...]

This continues in that tradition.Here's what the episode is about from The Huffington Post: … [Read more...]
