Duggar Rumors: Jill and Jessa Feud Escalating?

TLC's 'Cake Boss' family and the 'Honey Boo Boo' family were on 'Family Feud' If this keeps up will we see the Seewald versus the Dillard families on the show?

More on the falling out between Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard. Not sure how true this is either considering many of the stories appearing in the media about the Duggar family lately haven't been truthful. Example: All that talk about Jim Bob wanting Jana to be courted by Tim Tebow? His rep, Jana and Amy Duggar say it's a ridiculous tabloid fiction. Too bad, because it would have been an escape for Jana from the Duggar fold instead of endless 'buddies' and piles of laundry and cooking. … [Read more...]

puke

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser(Editor's note: Welcome back to the world of blogging. Bruce, you've been sorely missed.)Under attack over their handling of sexual abuse and rape complaints, fundamentalist Christian university, Bob Jones University, hired GRACE (Godly Response for Abuse in the Christian Environment), to do an investigation.  Towards the end of the investigation, Bob Jones ended its contractual arrangement with GRACE and refused to allow any report to be issued. The outrage over this was such that Bob Jones was forced to re-contract with GRACE and the report has now been released. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Report More False Than True Rape Incidents?

Some of the same infuriating rape culture thinking that Matt Walsh promotes..

by Matt Walsh at The Matt Walsh Blog - False Rape Accusations Are Just as Evil as Rape ItselfWhile Matt is not addressing the recently revealed allegations that Bob Jones University officials covered up sexual abuse cases on campus, he is sounding off on the recent story in Rolling Stone magazine about rape on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. After Rolling Stone published their story of ignored rape taking place in a fraternity it came out that the accuser was lying. He seizes upon this one story to make his assertions that rape is mostly made up instead of examining the evidence that Bob Jones and other Christian schools have lied and covered up … [Read more...]

News: Pastor Steven Anderson Lied to a Bunch of Rabbis…

anderson

...and tricked several of them into being filmed for his anti-Semitic film. One of them is planning on suing. Lying is bad enough, tricking a Holocaust survivor into appearing in an anti-Semitic film is a whole different ticket to one of the circles of hell by Anderson's own belief system. He better start praying his God isn't real! Especially since his beloved Jesus was a Jew.From Raw Story - Anti-gay Arizona pastor tricks Holocaust survivor into appearing in his anti-Semitic film … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 177-206 “Can We___?”

50s-in-love-couple

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I knew before I sat down to read today’s chapter that it had been the one that people found controversial, but I wasn’t familiar with why it had upset some—and I have to admit that even after reading it I still wasn’t sure why it had apparently caused a hubbub. To me, it seemed as though Mark was toeing the conservative evangelical line pretty well. I mean, he was clearly “being Mark,” but he didn’t say anything that I wouldn’t have expected from a lot of other evangelical leaders. … [Read more...]

Bob Jones University: Hope Before GRACE Storm

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceMy life has become tremendously busy, I've not done a tenth of that which I planned over the past two months, but I am grateful that a friend sent word to me about the status of the Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment's report concerning Bob Jones University.  Its release is planned for the morrow and concerns whether the school appropriately fulfilled their legal obligations to report felonies of physical and sexual abuse that were reported to them by their students.  It also addressed the manner in which the staff, the administration, the school's system of managing student behavior, and the counselors addr … [Read more...]

Michelle Duggar and the Duggar Family: Hatemongers Hiding Behind Religion

Michelle-Duggar

Remember those robo calls that Michelle Duggar made in order to try and get the voters of Fayetteville, Arkansas to overturn the civil rights laws recently passed in the town protecting people from being discriminated against for race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, family status, marital status, socioeconomic background, religion, disability or veteran status? She succeeded.Way to go, way to hate on everyone in a way Jesus would approve of. /sarcasm … [Read more...]

Duggar Drama: Fighting For a Place in the Front Row?

Not Jill and Jessa but what they might be itching to do to each other is reports are right.

Remember last week's Duggar Dramaz of Jill and Jessa no longer following each other on social media? Apparently that extends also their their respective spouses, Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald too. They do not follow each other. But... why should they follow each other?While this isn't like earth shaking horrible news in the real world, it's not like some poor defenseless kid getting shot by a cop or the fact that the CIA mislead all of us on their torture program, it's apparently passing as 'news'. Which is pretty funny considering there are always going to be people in your own family, or the family of your in-laws that you don't particularly like and wouldn't follow on social media. … [Read more...]
