There's been a lot about them in the news lately but most of it is either speculation or idle manufactured gossip to promote the new series of Duggar family specials on TLC. Yes, TLC is going ahead with 'Counting On' and they've released an entire series of sneak peek videos promoting the show. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Michael Pearl Answers Parenting Questions

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SINFUL SensitivityEditor's note: What? She still thinks it might be okay to let someone that molested his daughters have sleepovers with her daughters? While Michael is absolutely correct in saying that sleepovers at a former child molester's home are a bad idea he then takes it to a very scary place by saying that the man needs to be castrated. Studies have shown that castrating sex offenders does not do any good in the long run. … [Read more...]

Fear, Loathing and Jealousy Behind the Scenes in the Duggar Family Household?

news

A pile of supposed Duggar 'insiders' has been whispering to a reporter for the tabloid Life & Style magazine. It's not all pickles, hair spray and side hugs according to them. The title on the front cover reads 'Jessa Duggar Delivery Room Drama' Inside there's nothing about any delivery room drama, merely a rehashing of the fact that Jessa Duggar Seewald's due date is today, November 1st, and what happened with Jill's delivery of little Israel Dillard's delivery. Deceptive click-baiting title like something straight off the internet. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Hatch New Television Scheme?

quotingquiverfull

by 'Unnamed Insider' by both Star Magazine and Classicalite - "19 Kids and Counting" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar New TV Show Planned After CancellationEditor's note: File this under 'sketchy' since there's nothing official out there about this. But the idea of Jim Bob and Michelle using the sexual abuse suffered by their daughters to climb back on television isn't far-fetched as it first sounds. Remember these are people that have taken some pretty awful fame-whoring behaviors to new levels after the cancellation of their show. They have admitted they are desperate to go back on television because they believe this is what God wants them to do. Funny how what God wants them to do always … [Read more...]

propinqua

by PropinquaParallels between reality shows and patriarchal families are striking and dismaying. The Duggar family was strangely off the grid while on camera, recording movies and TV shows in a workplace with no state records whatsoever. Paul Petersen is an advocate for young performers. What he writes about reality shows could also describe the patriarchal movement, with its “family economy” and home schooling. Petersen wrote the following for Ethics Alarms in 2010: … [Read more...]
