Quoting Quiverfull: Josh Dugger Was Just Playing “Doctor”?

quotingquiverfull

by Carrie Hurd, wife of pastor Patrick Hurd of Heritage Covenant Church in Weatherford, Texas posted on NLQ Founder Vyckie Garrison's Facebook page and reported on by Raw Story and many other media outlets.Editor's note: Now some of  the ten Hurd family children are trying to harass Vyckie on her Facebook for this and they're coming up pretty short.  None of them seem to realize that 'playing doctor' (normal childhood sexual exploration) is a far cry from touching sleeping girls inappropriately. Playing doctor involves consent of both parties. What Josh did tramples the notion of consent. Lack of consent makes what he did criminal.Backstory on all of this: … [Read more...]

When We First Heard About Josh Duggar’s Crimes

Screencap from TwoP

Correction Screen caps from the blog - Bascha. This is the point where the rumors of Josh Duggar's bad behavior first emerged. The question I want to know is how could TLC have not known.

They've already added "19 Kids & Counting" back into their schedule starting on June 1st. TLC merely wants the money, they don't care about the actual victims. … [Read more...]

The first of next month they start airing the show again.
