On Growing Up Duggar

lanawideopenground

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundFor months, and for years, I have pleaded with the American public to stop glorifying the Duggar family and to get the Duggars off TV. It has pained me, indeed hurt me, to see a family who grew up in the same subculture as I did, make headlines.I have called 19 kids and Counting, the Duggar’s reality TV show, the Truman Show. Births are filmed and aired on TV. Girls’s virginity are sold to TV advertisers. And the Duggar children never get a taste of the real outside world. In a cult, there is no outside world. Because, in a cult, you are told that everything is more real, more tasteful, and more glorious here, in Christ. … [Read more...]

Image by NLQ Suzanne Titkemeyer

This morning In Touch Weekly revealed on their website that there was absolutely no way that The Learning Channel could not have known about Josh Duggar molesting five girls over a period of time. Why? Because TLC film crews were all over the Duggar household in 2007 filming the birth of Jennifer Duggar, August 2, 2007. Josh Duggar sued the Arkansas Dept. of Human Services and went to trial four days later on August 6, 2007. … [Read more...]

Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: Not Everyone Wants To Molest Kids No Matter What Mr. Seewald Says

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Not everyone is a closet pedophileEditor's note: Color me officially frightened. I'm sort of agreeing with Zsuzsanna regarding Ben Seewald's father stating that anyone would be a molester if they thought there was no consequences and you could totally get away with it. Nope, not so mister. Most of us don't have those impulses or even if you have impulses like that you surely do not ever act upon them! … [Read more...]

Josh Duggar’s Crimes Were Committed ‘BC’?

Screen cap of Ray Comfort's Tweet

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...]

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

quotingquiverfull

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...]
