The Duggars “More Popular Than Jesus?”

The Duggars seem to have forgotten that Jesus told us to love one another.

by Suzanne Titkemeyer - NLQ AdminOkay, so the quoted part of the title was factually uttered by the Beatles John Lennon way back in 1966 and not by Jim Bob Duggar. Here's the entire John Lennon quote, posting it because in the context of the Duggars, Jesus and popularity it's interesting. John Lennon was seriously off when he claimed that Christianity would die and disappear. It has only strengthened on the fundamentalist side.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Proud of Mental Illness?

Why do Evangelicals find mental health treatment so frightening and mysterious?

by Voddie Baucham from his sermon "Nebuchadnezzar Loses His Mind" as transcribed by R.L. Stollar from Homeschoolers Anonymous posted on his Facebook feed.Didn't Voddie say that you should never watch television? Sounds like he's been watching a lot of "Law and Order: SVU" and listening to Dr. George Huang on SVU. This is some of the usual disgusting shaming of mental illness and those that suffer from it. … [Read more...]

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids Collide(Trigger Warning for abusive church behaviors.)Ever wonder if Debi would pull her punches on friends?She doesn't. When a "friend" has the audacity to get a divorce from an abusive husband AND marry a different man, Debi spews out the massive misinformation created by a conspiracy to destroy the woman's magazine.I know it sounds crazy...but the information is a matter of public record since the woman and her second husband were brave enough to sue. … [Read more...]

Jill Dillard Versus Jessa Seewald – Part 1

tugofwar

Yesterday evening as I did my daily spin through the piles of articles generated about TLC's the Duggar family of '19 Kids and Counting' and various homophobic actions it dawned on me that it genuinely looks as though Duggar married daughters Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald are actually waging a war over who gets the most publicity and public interest. This shit just got all too real looking.Why they are doing this could be interpreted at least a couple of different ways. … [Read more...]

by  Gary DeMar at both Ladies Against Feminism and Godfather Politics - A Biblical Solution to False Rape ChargesIf I'm not mistaken they seem to be advocating either jail time or death for false accusers. Is this really any way to solve a problem? … [Read more...]

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...]

Bob Jones University Ignored Sexual Abuse for Decades

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…

...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...]
