Bill Gothard Talks to The Daily Mail About Josh Duggar Molestation

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThere's no indication if The Daily Mail got an actual interview with former IBLP/ATI head Bill Gothard or if this is cobbled together from other interviews of Gothard or off his own website or promotional materials.

News: Naugler Family, Dillard Mission Trip and Jessa Duggar Seewald Wore Pants

Turns out that the the Naugler parents have regained custody of their ten children from the state of Kentucky. No word on how this happened. I would imagine that the family was either found to be properly providing for their children or that the parents, Joe and Nicole, improved the living situation on their land enough to meet state requirements. Suspecting it's probably the later considering a fundraiser for the family brought in over 70K for improvements on their very crude living arrangements. Plus it sounds like from the news stories that Kentucky CPS is still going to be part of this family's life for quite some time. Unless they do what they've done in the past, pick up stakes and … [Read more...]

When Christians Eat Their Own Wounded – Bill Gothard’s New Website

Behind Compound Walls: Dueling Duggar Stories – Is Josh Duggar ‘Suicidal’?

Everything single morning I can count on a couple of things once I get out of bed. 1) The cats will demand food, 2) I will need copious amounts of coffee and 3) there will be a pile of articles involving the Duggar family landing in my email box. Personally I prefer the cats and coffee. One reason why is became many times the stories of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stories are either generated by their PR firm or they all just contradict the hell out each other. … [Read more...]

False Start

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...]
