Quoting Quiverfull: Bringing Shame To All Christians?


by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - My Thoughts on the DuggarsEditor's note: In conculsion Zsu jumps around all over the place, first claiming it might not be too late for Josh, expressing sorrow for the victims before saying that the Duggars should never have been television-chasing, fame-whoring people that would do anything for ratings with this many sorry skeletons in their metaphorical closets. But... how does this shame all Christians?- Yet with all that being said, and I know I will draw immense hate for this from the trolls on this site, I am not convinced beyond any doubt that Josh Duggar himself had reached that point of being a reprobate pedophile … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Without Execution Victims Cannot Recover?


by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours?Editor's note: Everyone's favorite Holocaust denier (check out her latest posting claiming the Holocaust never happened) argues that you cannot begin to recover from sexual abuse if the abuser isn't properly punished via something like execution and without God. She's making some pretty big assertions there for someone with no experience in the field of recovery. She also seems to think that repentance of sins is not enough to be 'saved'. What type of gospel is being preached at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe?  Tomorrow the conclusion of Zsuzsanna's thoughts on crime, punishment and the Duggars.- Not all who are abused … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 2 – Fleas


by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDebi's mind works in strange, strange ways. SpidersBefore Patricia's flea story, I want to tell you one of my own insect nightmares.  Years ago I got mad at my neighbor for being offensive to her husband.  I stewed, fumed, and even fussed about it to some friends.  I knew I was acting ugly, but I kept my grudge. Debi is angry that her neighbor is being rude to the neighbor's husband.  Debi is so angry at this behavior that she's ruminating on the slight and gossiping behind the neighbor's back.Is Debi twelve?  This is age-appropriate for twelve-year old girls, not an adult woman.She actually has a grudge about her n … [Read more...]

NLQ Project ‘Love Bomb’ – Steven L. Anderson


by Suzanne TitkemeyerAs the coverage of the hate speech being babbled by pastor Steven L. Anderson comes gushing forth like so much sewage I have to ask myself : "What is the best way to respond to his hate? What form should a protest take?"There have already been boots on the ground protests in Tempe in front of the strip mall holding his church, Faithful Word Baptist Church by people from all walks of life and faiths. What was Anderson's response? He sat around watching them while he ate yogurt before he spoke to the crowd. … [Read more...]

My Dogmatic Crazy Glue

A slide from Matt's presentation.

I don't know if anyone else at NLQ follows the comedic genius that is Matt Inman aka The Oatmeal, but if I could but afford it I would hire Inman to do a caricature of the Duggar family I would use in all Duggar postings instead of their photos because it would be so awesomely bad. Matt has an ability to make you laugh even at awful things. Some of his cartoons about religion have been right on the money.Recently he spoke at BAH Fest West and explained his thoughts on Faith (tm). Enjoy. Praise Jibbers!   … [Read more...]
