Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from Under Much GraceEditor's note: In light of everything that has come out about the Duggar family and Josh Duggar's molestation of his sisters it might be a good thing to revisit what Bill Gothard and others connected with the IFB think about defiled females.

image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

Yesterday I was telling a friend that I am sure In Touch Weekly magazine has likely got a pile of documents and bombshells still to release on the Josh Duggar sexually molests girls story and that we're going to see new revelations released each Wednesday morn until their sales slack off. Especially this morning as today is the day that Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar will be appearing on Fox News tonight to try and explain their actions in the face of Josh's sex crimes. … [Read more...]

by Biblical Gender Roles at BiblicalGenderRoles.com - 8 Steps To Confront Your Wife's Sexual RefusalEditor's note: Checking in again with the guy that insists that he is owed sex by his wife because once you buy the cow you should be drinking milk anytime you want it. He doesn't get sexual consent, he doesn't understand that women are not consumable objects. This is the kind of screwed up thinking in Quiverfull and Evangelical Christianity that leads to rape and other sexual crimes. Men are not 'owed' sex ever! … [Read more...]

It’s Okay, Josh Duggar Is An Alleged Pedophile, But He’s Not Gay

by S. J. Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoUpdated: I think no one picked up on the fact that Ms. Reidhead was speaking sarcastically and everyone believed in the seriousness of her words, leading to many nasty things being said in the comments.

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ & Explaining Bestiality in Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Now Michael is claiming that youth groups in church are a hotbed of seduction and that the church is filled with pedophiles and seducers fishing for others to indoctrinate. If he really believes this when why isn't he advocating each family do their own home church without any outsiders? Sorry, but it's unlikely that every single church is filled with those wanting to sexually abuse children. It's a little farfetched to claim every church is that way. … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser(Editor's note: Welcome back to the world of blogging. Bruce, you've been sorely missed.)Under attack over their handling of sexual abuse and rape complaints, fundamentalist Christian university, Bob Jones University, hired GRACE (Godly Response for Abuse in the Christian Environment), to do an investigation.  Towards the end of the investigation, Bob Jones ended its contractual arrangement with GRACE and refused to allow any report to be issued.
