News: Josh Duggar and Porn on the Campaign Trail?

Remember all that whispering about 'sin in the camp' and Josh Duggar's broken courtship when he was 16? Remember how the Holt family of Arkansas suddenly disassociated themselves with the Duggars, leading to rumors that the Holt daughter was the one that got molested? While no one knows if the Holt daughter was the babysitter it's unlikely she's a victim considering her involvement with him would have taken place after all that happened. … [Read more...]

What ‘Gaystapo’?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI never know exactly what awaits me every morning when I take a stroll through the latest articles and blogs on the type of extremist Christianity that fills Quiverfull. Today I was greeted with the bizarre thoughts of one Mark Judge at Real Clear Religion. Mark has one of the stranger reactions to the recent Supreme Court decision on marriage equality. He decided it means that the gay community has started to purposely inflict emotional abuse on Christians at large.Say what? Emotional abuse, that thing that goes hand in hand with the spiritual abuse many of us here at No Longer Quivering suffered at the hands of those same 'Good Christians'(tm)? If they were … [Read more...]

News: Jim Bob Duggar Pals Around With Christian Convict

by Suzanne TitkemeyerNews that came out yesterday with an accompanying photograph to prove it's more than a rumor is that Jim Bob Duggar went to Mississippi to be there when tax evading scofflaw Kent Hovind was released from prison. I guess since Mississippi is such a hop, skip and a jump from Arkansas when you own a plane.Remember Hovind? He's a big proponent of Young Earth Creationism and started the Dinosaur Adventure Land  in Pensacola, Florida. He pushes the idea that the earth is only maybe six thousand years old instead of the at least fifty thousand years that carbon dating has proven and millions of years old  other scientific methods have proven. That's not the only thing h … [Read more...]

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. But Gothard is addressing Josh Duggar's time at the Little Rock, Arkansas counseling center during the time his family sent him away for sexually molesting his sisters and the baby sitter. … [Read more...]

News: It’s Wednesday – Duggars

It looks like In Touch Weekly dropped the Duggar ball this week when there are new legal documents or at least news of legal maneuvering. Looking at their website it looks like In Touch is busy salivating over Subway's Jared having his home searched by the FBI for child pornography and John Legend's naked derriere photos. No time or room for Duggars.If you are interested in the latest Duggar News be sure and follow the Facebook page Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray  Some of today's  news emerged out of their page. … [Read more...]

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...]

NLQ Question of the Week: What Is Marriage?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.While I was putting together Quoting Quiverfull for this evening I was reading through the website of someone we occasionally quote for NLQ - Vaughn Ohlman - True Love Doesn't Wait.   And he had this to say about last week's historic ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States granting everyone the right to marry who they chose without the constraints of gender. … [Read more...]

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

by Suzanne TitkemeyerSeveral different websites and organizations have gone after the very hypocritical IBLP founder Bill Gothard as soon as he emerged back in the public eye. Mr. Gothard is just doing what all the pastors caught with their hands and assorted body parts where they shouldn't be do after the scandal has died down. I think it is also safe to say we're going to also see Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar try to do exactly the same thing within six months, but only after they jettison Josh Duggar due to the pending lawsuit one of his victims filed. … [Read more...]

News: Josh Duggar Being Sued By Non-Family Member Victim

Again it is a Wednesday so you know that means if In Touch Weekly has scored a new legal document in the ongoing TLC's "19 Kids & Counting" Josh Duggar sexual predator scandal they'll be posting it. They did. Several new documents.Josh Duggar is being sued by his one victim that is not one of his own sisters. Not really a shocker considering how much money that the Duggars have purportedly made off their TLC show and books through the years. Plus Josh was likely pulling down a big old fat stack of cash during his Family Research Counsel gig. … [Read more...]

Anthony Wayne Escalera Follows Dorothy Over The Rainbow Over Gay Pride Flag

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserSnark, sarcasm ahead!Over at the fundamentalist Christian Defending Contending blog, Mark Anthony Escalera had this to say: …After the flood, God created a rainbow to be His seal in the heavens. It was a declaration to show the mercy and longsuffering of God. The rainbow was His picture to a depraved world that while He would never again destroy the world with a flood, He would be coming again. The next time He comes, there will be no rainbows. There will only be fire and total destruction of ALL that stand opposed to Him.The true rainbow is made up of 7 different primary colors of a spectrum. It i … [Read more...]
