Remember those photos that Josh Duggar used in his Ashley Madison account and his other online dating sites that were not him?

Quoting Quiverfull: Weddings Are the Pinnacle of a Christian Girl’s Achievements?

by Unknown at Crown of Beauty Magazine - Altogether LovelyEditor's note: This one was hard to figure out what to quote. The beginning where the author calls blogging 'edgy'. Blogging has been going on since the beginning of the internet, so it's old hat now. Her gushing over the quicky engagement and marriage of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard. Or her calling Taylor Swift's music 'Old School' and saying it put her in a 'nastalic' mood. 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...]

Josh and Anna Duggar Expecting Again

Guessing that all the rumors of a divorce between reprobate Ashley Madison member Josh Duggar and his long-suffering wife Anna aren't so true.

That Josh doesn't cheat or treat her poorly?Have to say while this is not unexpected since there have been rumors since Thanksgiving that Anna was pregnant again, this feels so sad. Poor Anna.Anna must have taken the advice posted in Michelle's blog again and again in the aftermath of Josh's exposure to heart. Michelle kept reposting her advice … [Read more...]

Duggar Family Round Up: Zika, Babies and Robbery

There's been a lot of news happening on TLC's Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar family, but rather than post a lot of small pieces I decided to just do one long post instead. Get it over with, just like when you might have to take a whopping dose of castor oil when you were a kid. Lots of little sips will gag you, better to swallow a heaping tablespoon full at once.So what's happening in America's First Family of Quiverfull? … [Read more...]

Examining ATI Wisdom Booklets – Music

Found this on Facebook in a group discussing how much control Bill Gothard and his Institute of Basic Life Principles exerted over his followers. It's a page from one of the Wisdom Booklets that NLQ blogger Mel has yet to cover - why all Christian music that is not an old hymn is a sin. I guess Gothard doesn't realize that most of the hymns from the 1700 and 1800s were new lyrics coupled with the melodies of drinking songs and tunes played in the taverns of the time. … [Read more...]
