Duggar Family Round Up: Zika, Babies and Robbery

There's been a lot of news happening on TLC's Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar family, but rather than post a lot of small pieces I decided to just do one long post instead. Get it over with, just like when you might have to take a whopping dose of castor oil when you were a kid. Lots of little sips will gag you, better to swallow a heaping tablespoon full at once.So what's happening in America's First Family of Quiverfull? … [Read more...]

Examining ATI Wisdom Booklets – Music

Found this on Facebook in a group discussing how much control Bill Gothard and his Institute of Basic Life Principles exerted over his followers. It's a page from one of the Wisdom Booklets that NLQ blogger Mel has yet to cover - why all Christian music that is not an old hymn is a sin. I guess Gothard doesn't realize that most of the hymns from the 1700 and 1800s were new lyrics coupled with the melodies of drinking songs and tunes played in the taverns of the time. … [Read more...]

Anna Duggar Divorcing Josh Duggar and Assorted Duggar Media Coverage

Next week we'll return to our review of Lori Alexander's book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife' I've been out of the country with spotty internet and I flew back in yesterday to see a pile of tabloid stories on the magazines at the airport involving the Duggar family.In Touch is claiming that Anna Duggar is on the verge of divorcing spouse Josh. It seems that the man whose photographs Josh used on both the Ashley Madison and OkCupid, Matthew McCarty, is suing Josh. The case is going to court on February 27. According to the usual bunch of 'unnamed Duggar insiders' Anna has spoken to a divorce attorney and is planning on filing for divorce soon because the lawsuit is the final straw in … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sex Gives You Cooties?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Flee FornicationEditor's note: Has anyone ever heard of picking up non-STD infections from lots of sex with others? News to me. Plus the whole 'Why by the cow when you can get the milk for free' is one of the most insulting cliches that reduces women to sex objects/animals. Also, is rampant fornication more of a problem in the church than out in the real world? The way that Vaughn Ohlman, Steven Anderson and others carry on about the subject makes you think that the Quiverfull world is one short step away from a Roman orgy scene out of Caligula. Circle, circle, dot, dot, dot I'm glad I got my cootie shot. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Forgiving Josh Duggar?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - My Letter to Anna DuggarEditor's note: Considering the earlier Quoting Quiverfull cited one of Lori's younger readers being convicted of not being submissive enough by this open letter to poor cheated upon Anna Duggar, beleaguered wife of Josh Duggar, I thought we needed to take another look at what Lori said. It's the usual submit harder and he will change message, the most toxic idea in subsets of Evangelicalism. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Being Like a Man Greatest Sin of a Woman?

by John MacArthur from Grace to You - Head Coverings For WomenEditor's note: So it seems that the idea of doing anything like a man if you are a woman is automatically considered rebellion against God. I guess that explains why men with fragile masculinity like Tim Bayly lose their minds when women fight in the UFC or try to have combat positions in the military - it's just the CPM version of the Little Rascals 'He-Man Woman Haters Club'. Hair and clothing are such personal matters than only the person with the hair or making the clothing decisions should have say over what their choices are. … [Read more...]
