Quoting Quiverfull: Jim Bob Duggar Great Dad Allows Consequences for ‘Sinful Behavior’?

quotingquiverfull

by Michelle Duggar from The Duggar Family.com - 5 Reasons Why Jim Bob Duggar Is A Loving DadEditor's note: In light of what his son Josh did to his own sisters this is just ridiculous to claim. It minimizes the damage done and the criminal nature of Josh's actions while pretending Jim Bob allowed him to face real consequences. For a complete takedown of all the ridiculous things Michelle is claiming about Jim Bob take a look at the Facebook group Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray. They posted a point by point rebuttal to Michelle's words. This is nothing more than a shameless attempt to try and make everyone forget about their recent troubles so that they can … [Read more...]

False Start

Image by Propinqua

by PropinquaEditor's note: This is another in our series of articles written by anonymous authors that are not linked to any blog.The Josh Duggar saga has raised lots of disturbing questions about the scope of child sexual abuse. How bad does it have to be, to rate the label of abuse? If the victim is unaware of the predator’s actions or intent, should the predator be excused? In the Duggar case, little girls were involved, and the damage to them has been denied and hidden. While no one wants to force survivors to relive child sexual abuse, that unwillingness stands in the way of helping the survivors themselves come to terms with what happened to them. … [Read more...]

Your Weekly Duggar Scandal News

19lies

by Suzanne Titkemeyer Oddly enough there are no new legal documents or scandals involving TLC's "19 Kids & Counting" Duggar family coming out of In Touch magazine.

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollidePart oneTo keep things straight, I've made a cheat sheet based off the Duggar Police Report of 2006.March 2002: Josh (14 years) confesses to Jim Bob and Michelle that he's molested Daughters "A" and "D" while they were sleeping (when at least one girl was sleeping on the couch of the living room).  "D" doesn't remember the abuse; "A" woke up at one point and thought in her half-awake state that Josh was stealing her blanket. … [Read more...]

How many lies can you find? Part one: Duggar Police Report

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAs long as the Duggars were avoiding the media, I didn't want to read through the police report.  I hoped that the Duggars would show some level of humility and compassion for their own daughters and allow them to start healing through access to counseling.  I didn't want to make things worse for the daughters..... Then, JimBo and Miz JimBo decided to take the offensive with "We did the best we could!", "We've heard of this happening before", "The media is EVIL" and the comment that triggered my rage "Yeah, you know.  Parents aren't mandated reporters." … [Read more...]

Is Child Sexual Abuse Rampant in Evangelical Quiverfull Type Christianity?

Molesters

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI am starting to believe that the situation in the Duggar family is far more widespread than everyone seems to think.  Much of the secular world reacted in horror at first. But now evidence is starting to emerge that seems to indicate this is an epidemic, not a isolated incident. Exactly how many connected to the Duggar family will be exposed as having sexually abused a child?Yesterday it was announced that Mike Huckabee's co-writer on two of his books, John Perry, has been accused of child sexual abuse in two separate law suits. Perry's ex wife has alleged that Perry admitted to the molestation in her divorce legal filing.This begs the question of why? Why … [Read more...]

The Moments My Heart Stopped: Jill and Jessa’s Interviews

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideJill and Jessa's interview with Megyn Kelly terrified me.The talking points were creepy as hell - and nearly identical to the Duggar parents talking points.Being molested isn't so bad because we didn't even know what happened until our parents told us! We found out about the molestation about 30 seconds before Josh left for Little Rock. Our parents are awesome!What scared me more were some of the outright lies that Jill and Jessa have internalized: … [Read more...]
