by Nora Woodhouse cross posted from her blog A Heart Like MineI think I can honestly say- especially since I was raised Evangelical Christian, my anger, maybe even seething rage at the current and past behavior of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar does not have to do with the fact that they are Christian. I can respect that they have and value a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. What I cannot respect is that they are not behaving in a truly Christ like manner. And I want to specify behavior because this isn't just parenting mistakes or something that can be blamed on not being perfect- but by the grace of God go they.

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

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

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?

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

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...]
