Dubious Tales With Debi Pearl

Dubious Tales With Debi Pearl January 13, 2019
While we’re not exactly doing “Answering Preparing To Be A Help Meet” Debi starts off her tale of tea and stale cookies so I’m using this graphic.

I’ll take things that never happened for a thousand dollars, Alex. Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy magazine is trying to write an inspirational piece on how to live your life as a great Christian lady, yet failing miserably. Dubious tales with Debi Pearl.

Debi starts off talking about an elderly lady living her her grandmother’s, complaining about the stale butter cookies, and remembering having tea at this lady’s tiny home. It’s a tale of Debi being accused unfairly of something by her cousin and reacting badly with this lady reminding her that she’s to be ladylike in all her dealings before moving on to this part.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that this tale is a morality vehicle for what Debi wanted to say rather than a real person. Debi and Michael love their convenient letters from supposed others that prove some obscure point.  This is very likely one of those.

First, Debi seems to be saying that shame needs to make a comeback for divorce and unwed mothers. Even in cases of abuse or rape. Back then everyone assumed if you were divorced or pregnant and unwed something was very wrong with you. Happily we no longer live in such times.

It’s because of know how things happened back then that I think this tale is hooey! Even if Miss Grace decided to unselfishly divorce her husband to save his lover having a child out of wedlock it’s very unlikely. Most courts in those days required a minimum of a year for a divorce, meaning her initial sacrifice would have been in vain.

But let’s just suppose that the miraculous happened and Mr. Grace got his divorce and married his pregnant paramour before the baby arrived. Would anyone ever take care of the wife and children who’d displaced you? Even a good Christian woman? I seriously doubt it.
