News Round Up: Kevin Swanson, Matt Walsh and Other Evangelicals Behaving Very Very Badly

I was going to use each of these news stories individually but there was such an overwhelming flood of awful it just makes more sense to do long posting with a list. Let us never forget what their true agendas are. First up comes from Arizona.Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen wants there to be a federal law that forces everyone to go to the church of their choice every Sunday in an attempt to bring morality back to the nation. While she's claiming her statement was of the moment and flippant it's a scary thing to discuss in a nation built on freedom of religion. … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Bible In The Home | Do We Have Permission to Judge?Editor's note: Is this really judging or just good parenting with some wisdom of the dangers lurking about?

Image from Suzanne Titkemeyer

Yesterday while cruising the 'net I came upon this turn of Jim Bob Duggar's as a Rap-styled 'Hype Man' in a clip from a church fundraiser in Ohio that features Christian comedian Anita Renfroe. Renfroe is occasionally a commentator on "Good Morning America" In the clip below Renfroe raps about the woes of motherhood in a song titled "Mutha'hood" and has Jim Bob Duggar help her out as her 'hype man'. While Anita is no Lil' Wayne or even Toby Mac she does a credible job and Jim Bob is pretty comical as her sidekick. … [Read more...]

by Jim Bob Duggar at Raw Story - Watching the Duggars teach their daughter to kiss will make you want to climb out of your own skinEditor's note: This came from an episode of TLC's "19 Kids & Counting" and there is a clip up at Raw Story and here.. Trigger Warning for being inappropriate and very creepy as much of it is making sure that Jessa and Ben Seewald are watching them demonstrate how to kiss. We all know it's not a good episode in the minds of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar unless they dry hump each other and kiss in front of their children who are forbidden from doing the same unless they are married. Bonus creepy points for Ben saying he sometimes gives Jessa 'the silent … [Read more...]

Image from Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencer cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserWhen Jack Schaap, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana, now a convicted felon,  was accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenager in his church, apologists for the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church movement and the Hyles/Schaap crime family came out in force to defend their own.

Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce For Christians Ever Because It Causes God’s Judgment?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Beautiful Attitude ContinuedEditor's note: Colin seems to think that every single thing that doesn't line up with his personal interpretation of the Bible is going to cause God to thrash and trash the earth and all it's inhabitants rather soon. Somehow I get the feeling that he really wants that final judgment to happen as soon as possible. There is so much in the world of Quiverfull theology that wants others judged and throws shade on anything or anyone not part of the select group. What a way to live! … [Read more...]
