by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserJodi Heckert and his daughter appeared in a June 14, 2014 Slate Magazine article titled “Striking Portraits of Fathers and the Daughters Whose Virginity They’ve Pledged to Protect.” (While Heckert’s daughter is now an adult, I have decided to not publish her name.)

Quoting Quiverfull: Trusting God For Handsome Husband?

by Stacy Reaoch from John Piper's Desiring God - What if God Wants me to Marry Someone Ugly?Editor's note: Oh my! This notion in the whole Purity Culture that it is not necessary to either love or be attracted to your husband or wife is a huge setup for an unhappy marriage! If, just if, it really was God arranging your marriage would He not know you well enough to bring you a husband or wife that makes your heart beat faster and you find attractive? I'm always amazed how Evangelical Quiverfull tells people that their God is so strong, but He cannot handle a simple assignment like a spouse that is not only Godly but also the perfect match in all ways. … [Read more...]

But the most disturbing part of this piece that sounds like it was written by a giggling twelve year old is her insistence that getting married is the BIG GOAL of every girl's life. This is what happens when you isolate a homeschooled girl severely, you … [Read more...]

The Image Rehab of One Josh Duggar

When it was announced late this week that Anna and Josh Duggar were expecting again it immediately started conversation on message boards speculating two things. 1 - How long before Josh re-offends? He had a long history of bad behavior his parents have swept under the rug, starting with his molesting his sisters and the other victim, through the rumors he looked at porn on campaign computers for another politician through his Ashley Madison exposure, hookups and shenanigans. Add in all the sightings of Josh at Arkansas and D.C. area strip clubs and this seems to be a long-established pattern. Unlikely that his six months at a pray the porn away work camp had much of a dent on his desires. … [Read more...]
