News: Josh Duggar – Sexual Abuser Rumors Possibly True?

This evening while perusing Facebook  found a disturbing link to a story about Josh Duggar at the Facebook group page Duggar Family News. They posted a link to a story that seems to confirm the ten years of rumors we've all heard about Josh, that he was sexually inappropriate with an under age girl. The article at In Touch magazine confirms that there was a police report that was never investigated until after the statue of limitations had already passed on any possible crime. The article claims Josh is an “alleged offender” in an underage sexual abuse probe.From In Touch - '19 Kids and Counting' Son Named In Underaged Sex Probe (If that title isn't click bait I don't know what is..) … [Read more...]

Jason Lisle Says There is No Such Thing as an Atheist

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserImagine, for a moment, that every time someone told me they were a Christian I told them that they weren’t really a Christian because there is no such thing as a Christian. It says right here in the Book of Bruce Almighty® that everyone knows that Bruce Almighty exists and that anyone who says they are a Christian is suppressing their knowledge of the existence of Bruce. The Christian would likely say that they know they are a Christian because Jesus saved them and they believe the teaching found in the Bible. Imagine if I REFUSED to allow the Christian to authentically tell their own story.  Can you ima … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Television is Pushing ‘Gay Agenda’?

by Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis originally from his Blog as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - The Sexual Liberation Movement Failed Us. We're Not SurprisedEditor's note: Television really isn't a medium that has ever completely formed and informed the morals of this nation. Most of the time it is a mirror reflecting  whatever social issue will get the most viewers, even if the issue isn't as pressing as it is shown to be on the tiny screen. All you have to do is look at shows like 'Jerry Springer' to see the axiom of whatever grabs the ratings. ABC family showing a gay teen kiss is just doing whatever will generate the most viewers, which translates into more advertising dollars. It's … [Read more...]

My Heart Breaks for Micah … and Bethany

by Boze Herrington cross posted from his blog Sketches by BozeOne afternoon in the fall of 2007 I walked over and sat down across from Bethany in the Southwestern Commons. I had a dazed look on my face.“Were you just talking to Micah Moore?” she asked me.I nodded. “How do you know Micah?”“He’s in my Reel Jews class. What did y’all talk about?”“He did most of the talking,” I said, in a perplexed voice. “He told me about Jesus.” … [Read more...]

Not Exactly Christ’s Christianity

by S.J. Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoThe Christianity which is practiced by far too many members of the evangelical right is almost unrecognizable to what ‘evangelical’ churches practiced up until about 1978.  That was close to the cut-off point, when things began to change.  One of the very real problems is that I’m like the average Christian in this country.  I was living in a fool’s paradise.  Sure, I knew that things were getting a little flaky, but like everyone else, just chalked it up to things getting a little flaky.  Like just about everyone else, I never realized there was a very overt agenda, a planned take-over of the country, using a heretical version … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt

NLQ SASBN member Boze Herrington has written a review of the new Netflix show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt" for The Guardian newspaper. If you've not seen this new television show you might want to watch a few episodes. It's a comedy and yes, it is somewhat silly at times, but the draw for anyone in the former Quiverfull movement is that the show tackles the difficult issue of what it is like when you leave a cult and your entire frame of reference on life is what you learned within the cult. It manages to capture that perfect awkwardness in readjusting or adjusting for the first time to the outside world. … [Read more...]

Jessa Duggar Seewald: Preaching Hellfire and Brimstone

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: I know we've discussed Jessa's awkward internet salvation call earlier in the month but Bruce brings up a point that seems to be common in Evangelical Christianity yet commonly ignored.
