The First Steps Towards Understanding Jill and Jessa Duggar’s Fox Interview: Second Generation Adults in Cultic/High Demand Religions

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace A host of resources exist exploring the characteristics of the subculture of the Quiverfull Movement (which is often synonymous with Patriarchy within evangelical Christian homeschooling circles).  As the new generation that this movement produced finds their voice, there appears to be little information about the process of how this group in particular has affected the development of the now adult “arrows” of their parents’ quivers , especially for those who remain within their religious culture of origin. … [Read more...]

The Duggar Story – Thoughts and LInks

Watchtheshepherd

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch The ShepherdDear friends,My heart is so weary and grieved. Again. Reports of child molestation by a member of the Duggar family (19 and Counting reality TV show) have hit the national news, and my Facebook feed has been exploding. Again. Yet another representative of the large family & home schooling movement caught in a devastating sexual scandal. It doesn't just hurt because I am a Christian mama of 10 who has been home schooling nearly 25 years. It hurts because the lives of so many of my dear relatives and friends have been badly wounded or utterly destroyed by pedophiles and other abusers. … [Read more...]

Did You Watch Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald on Fox News Tonight?

Here have a kitty first!

Have an Emergency Kitten first.Your admin here chickened out actually watching the show. I listened safely from another room petting my Siamese cat and having ice cream while my husband watched. I could not bring myself to watch the tears of the victims outed by Fox News and their family. Neither girl should ever have been put in this position in the first place had proper redacting of the police reports occurred before release to In Touch Weekly. … [Read more...]

Updated: The Aftermath of the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Fox News Interviews

From Facebook

I think we are on day 17 or 18 of the news coming out about Josh Duggar molesting young girls.One thing is very obvious if you do a ramble through the online world - last night's attempt to explain away the family's actions and appease the masses may have had just the opposite effect on anyone who isn't a hard core Duggar fan to began with. Their appearance seems to be considered by many to be a complete and utter disaster. Listing many of the different articles about their appearance. Some of the fans are blaming all of this on Bill Clinton (seriously?!?) and nefarious liberals in the press. … [Read more...]

Bill Gothard Unveils “New Statement” Then Promptly Deletes It

Screen shot from Homeschoolers Anonymous

By R. L. Stollar - Community Coordinator of Homeschoolers Anonymous. This article is cross posted from Homeschoolers AnonymousYesterday Bill Gothard, the disgraced former leader of IBLP and ATI, unveiled a revamped website with some new additions. And then promptly deleted them.The new editions to this website were notable: First, a page of “blocked” testimonials appeared. These testimonials from former IBLP/ATI alumni were allegedly “blocked” from a unnamed website (which is obviously Recovering Grace) because they portrayed Gothard in a positive light. Second, Gothard published a “New Statement” about the sexual abuse and harassment allegations against him. An image of the “New Stat … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Game of Porn – “Game of Thrones” Is Mind-Rotting Pornography?

 by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog (linked through Do No Link: No need to give him any clicks towards the overwhelming flood of advertising on his site - beware the zillion popups! ) - Christians, Now Is Probably A Good Time To Stop Watching "Game of Thrones"Editor's note: Matt tries to make the case that "Game of Thrones"  watching is the same as watching pornography, that is is pornography. Clearly he has the same problems keeping away from porn as Michael Pearl seems to have in this week's article by Bruce Gerencser "Are You A Porno Freak?" What gives Walsh or Pearl the authority to determine for anyone else what we should or should not do? Did anyone really think … [Read more...]

So who watched Megyn Kelly interview Jim Bob and Michelle and what did you think?Here's the thoughts I had immediately upon watching...So many lies. They flat out contradicted the police reports many times. So many times that I started to wonder if a divine lightening bolt was going to come down and strike the two of them. … [Read more...]
