Image from Facebook

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIn this month's release of No Greater Joy's magazine there was an article by Michael Pearl supporting the Duggar family over Josh molesting his sisters. Here's what Michael Pearl said in support of the family while claiming that Christians are cannibalizing each other. Apparently we're all supposed to shut up about anything done wrong in the church according to Mikey: … [Read more...]

Where in the World is Josh Duggar Part 2?

news

Earlier in the week we posted here at NLQ speculation that perhaps Josh Duggar was not at a rehab named Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois because no one had seen him at any of the meetings or church services.There's nothing new to report on that story. But during the research I did for a Vyckie Garrison article that was published at Raw Story (check out the comments because they are pure comedy gold!) something odd appeared. On the FAA flight logs of both Duggar airplanes there were flights landing late at night, like eleven pm or so, and leaving the cities visited in the wee hours of the morn, like two or three am. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Upside Down World – LAF Now Claiming Unwed Pregnancies Not Sinful?

quotingquiverfull

by Chad Ashby as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Brothers and Sisters, Unwed Pregnancy is Not a SinEditor's note: While I agree with Ashby that there should not be blaming, shaming or condemnation when someone turns up pregnant out of wedlock it's  not been my experience that places like PRCs or even the pages of LAF are very safe places. This is exactly the kind of ridiculous hypocrisy that the world looks down upon in the churches, saying one thing, doing exactly the opposite.  Even the places that treat unwed expectant mothers well tend to turn and blame them the moment the baby is born and the mother attempts to sign up for any social network benefits. You cannot have it both w … [Read more...]

News: Where in the World is Josh Duggar?

news

While People Magazine and other tabloids are speculating mightily about the type of treatment Josh Duggar may be receiving at Reformers Unanimous in Illinois some rather curious news comes out of that area. No one in Rockford, Illinois has actually spotted Duggar among the other recovering addicts at RU. He hasn't been seen coming or going from the mandatory twice a Sunday services at North Love Baptist Church. Which is odd considering it would be a mandatory part of his recovery process at RU. There has been absolutely no sightings of Josh anywhere in Rockford or RU. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No True Christian?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Seewald from seewalds.com (father of Jessa Duggar Seewald's husband Ben) - Grief, Shame And Taking The LORD'S Name In VainEditor's note: Sad to see someone close to the Duggar family use the same awful shaming technique many of us here have experienced, the 'you were never a real Christian' stance. Was Josh Duggar ever a real Christian? We don't know, nor does Michael. He's doing more harm that good here by judging if someone else has 'real' faith. Most of us got this same treatment the minute we deviated from the established 'norm' at our former churches or faith communities. We've seen Christians minimize others using the "No True Scotsman" fallacy for years. … [Read more...]

Did Anyone Watch TLC’s “Breaking The Silence” Last Night?

screen cap from fox news

Open thread to discuss the program. With all the distractions of the Ashley Madison leak and rehab news of Josh Duggar it completely slipped my mind that the special about childhood sexual abuse aired last night. Did anyone see it? What did you think? How much were the Duggar's shown? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is a Man’s Infidelity Always The Wife’s Fault?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the sadder things that has happened after Josh Duggar's infidelity was exposed is the number of Christians expressing the idea that a wife is always responsible when the husband has sex with someone else during their marriage. It's an idea that has been mentioned even in the mainstream media, that poor heartbroken betrayed Anna Duggar is going to be blaming herself and it's likely the entire family will blame her. Like she doesn't have enough trauma and pain in her life this unBiblical theology point is going to add to that. It's already … [Read more...]
