Quoting Quiverfull: God Doesn’t Look For The Most Able?

snowflake

by Adeye Salem from No Greater Joy Mom - Embryo Adoption FAQThe new clinic (Snowflake (tm) where Adeye plans to have all of those frozen embryos implanted at is apparently also enabling the Salems to promote themselves to everyone as the go-to answer folks for questions. Or else they're allowing the Salems to prance and preen for attention via these videos. I cannot figure out which one it is, a 'Look at me!!!!' or a genuine attempt to 'help' others. What do you think?Some digging on the interwebs turned up this interesting article from 11 years ago about Snowflake adoption - The problem with 'embryo adoption' … [Read more...]

Duggar Drama: Fighting For a Place in the Front Row?

Not Jill and Jessa but what they might be itching to do to each other is reports are right.

Remember last week's Duggar Dramaz of Jill and Jessa no longer following each other on social media? Apparently that extends also their their respective spouses, Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald too. They do not follow each other. But... why should they follow each other?While this isn't like earth shaking horrible news in the real world, it's not like some poor defenseless kid getting shot by a cop or the fact that the CIA mislead all of us on their torture program, it's apparently passing as 'news'. Which is pretty funny considering there are always going to be people in your own family, or the family of your in-laws that you don't particularly like and wouldn't follow on social media. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Miss an Opportunity to Muslim-Bash While Being Anti-Birth Control?

NEWSWEEK JULY 30 COVER

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Eight Leaps of IllogicRemember a few days ago when we posted a bit from Conservative Christians debunking the Quiverfull movement? Vaughn Ohlman has taken it upon himself to dispute every single point of that list, one by one.But while he's doing that his racism is clearly on display. In the wake of Ferguson and other tragedies born out of racism can we afford to be racist in a country built by many different races, including Arabs and African Americans? This seems particularly cruel, evil and ignorant on the eve of a holiday celebrating giving thanks for the blessings of our nation, a nation founded on immigration and the idea of a … [Read more...]

Oh, that's right, the Duggars believe theirs is the only correct view. Everyone elses view is sin. … [Read more...]

by Wade Burleson from Ethics Daily - Missing The Mark: Eight Flaws in Quiverfull TheologyFound this gem through Von Ohlman's True Love Doesn't Wait - Eight Leaps of Illogic where he attempts to take down this piece by Burleson. Obviously this is written from a conservative Christian point of view, but it looks like even the more conservative branches of religion are starting to realize what a dangerous theological bend Quiverfull is. … [Read more...]

Why the Petition to Remove TLC’s Duggar Family From Television is Only Partially Right

From the Washington Post - The Duggars out campaigning for Ken Cuccinelli and EW Jackson in 2013. Both candidates lost their elections. So much for Duggar star power.

by Suzanne Titkemeyer NLQ AdminEarlier in the week we posted here at NLQ about a petition circulating to remove "19 Kids and Counting" from TLC's on air line up because of the homophobic nature of some of the recent doings of the Duggar's: Michelle's transphobic robo calls to the voters of Fayettesville, Arkansas, the Duggar's funding of anti-gay politicians and most recently, that whole sorry thing with the Duggar parents asking for people to post their marriage kissing photos that ended up with either a Duggar or one of TLC's social media lackeys removing the photos of gay couples kissing on their Facebook wall. … [Read more...]
