It’s Not Just The Duggars

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To LiveThis post has been a long time coming, and with the Duggar scandal all over the news, its been on my mind again. First off, let me say that what Josh Duggar did was wrong, and how the media has handled this story has been pretty awful too. Tabloids have been flippant about sharing police documents with the victims names on them, and since the Duggar family has been very vocally against LGBTQ people who they claim are child-molesters, there are a lot of people eager to point out the hypocrisy of covering up the deeds of a child molester in their midst. I think there is plenty out there on what happened, and how it was “handled”, I wan … [Read more...]

Howtowinoverdepression

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The DragonsHonestly, this chapter, which Tim titled “Depression and Your Temperament,” was more than a little befuddling. He bases his entire argument on Hippocrates’ Humorism— and no, I’m not joking. This chapter is dedicated to a medical theory thousands of years old that was completely obliterated by the advent of modern medical knowledge. … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Michelle Duggar from The Duggar Family.com - 5 Reasons Why Jim Bob Duggar Is A Loving DadEditor's note: In light of what his son Josh did to his own sisters this is just ridiculous to claim. It minimizes the damage done and the criminal nature of Josh's actions while pretending Jim Bob allowed him to face real consequences. For a complete takedown of all the ridiculous things Michelle is claiming about Jim Bob take a look at the Facebook group Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray. They posted a point by point rebuttal to Michelle's words. This is nothing more than a shameless attempt to try and make everyone forget about their recent troubles so that they can … [Read more...]

Did Jim Bob and Josh Duggar Commit Perjury?

news

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIt seems that In Touch Weekly's method of filing for legal documents using the US Freedom of Information Act has caught on with the other tabloids. Looks like Radar Online went on a document fishing expedition looking for legal papers and found the trial transcripts from when Jim Bob and Josh sued several insurance companies for not paying out a claim. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Please Stop Kissing My Future Unknown Wife?

quotingquiverfull

by an unknown author from To Save A Life - Please Stop Kissing My WifeEditor's note: More purity culture/rape culture garbage. Why is it this man is objecting to anyone possibly kissing his maybe future wife when it sounds like from his own descriptions of his dating life pre-Christ that he likely had a pile of booty calls. Why does the purity standard that calls women 'unwrapped licked candy bars' for normal expressions of romance like holding hands or kissing like they're some sort of Whore of Babylon and not treat the sexually experienced young men of the movement the same way? Male having had some sweet between the sheets mambo action that then confesses it to the Almighty is … [Read more...]

False Start

Image by Propinqua

by PropinquaEditor's note: This is another in our series of articles written by anonymous authors that are not linked to any blog.The Josh Duggar saga has raised lots of disturbing questions about the scope of child sexual abuse. How bad does it have to be, to rate the label of abuse? If the victim is unaware of the predator’s actions or intent, should the predator be excused? In the Duggar case, little girls were involved, and the damage to them has been denied and hidden. While no one wants to force survivors to relive child sexual abuse, that unwillingness stands in the way of helping the survivors themselves come to terms with what happened to them. … [Read more...]
