Anna Duggar Divorce?

If this turns out to be true, that Anna Duggar is filing for divorce, I will be anxious to hear what all the godly women have to say. Will they now turn on her?

Gushing posts have been written about what a special snowflake she is here and here.

This is tragic of course, but not as tragic as to the horrors Josh inflicted upon her. It it one thing to heal and forgive from an affair or two in the privacy of your own home, but to have the molestation, the prostitutes, the Ashley Madison ordeal, all the while being in the public eye is an excruciating burden.

  1. Abraham became a Patriarch because God called him and chose him, and even made the divine nature of choosing apparent by making his heir be born of a barren, extremely aged woman. When Abraham tried to be a Patriarch on his own, he begat Ishmael, whom the Muslims claim is the ancestor of Mohammed. Millenia later, see how that turned out….

    Isn’t is SO interesting how the theme of self-appointed authority keeps coming up?

    “So much for the Duggar cult. For the longest time they and their Quiverfull fellow travelers struck me as a wannabe Old Testament patriarchs that were paranoid of the encroachment of non-whites, non-Christians and non-white non-Christians. What exactly is Christian about having double digit numbers of children?”

    I think for a lot of normal Christian people, it’s easy to believe that there are no enemies to the right (the conservative version of “Pas d’ennemi à gauche”). Or it’s easy to believe that it’s impossible to take conservative or traditional ideas too far. So, if having children is great, having ALL the babies must be even better.

    It sounds dumb when stated that way, but I certainly fell for that idea. It certainly is tempting to believe that any criticism of people who live apparently similar lives to one’s own (just more so) or share one’s general political orientation must be unfair. (See also US leftists and the Soviet Union.) So, there couldn’t possibly be any cruel or negligent homeschoolers or adopters of large families…

    There have been a lot of (no doubt) very nice people who donated to the Nauglers, believing in the IDEA of the Nauglers (wholesome, self-sufficient homesteading), whereas the reality of the Nauglers is freaking terrible.

    I think that if one has a more balanced approach with a number of different priorities (rather than taking one or two and going crazy with them) that it’s possible to avoid this, but one needs to accept the fact that people can vote the same as oneself and share some of one’s values while being terrible people who need a CPS visit in the worst way.

  4. They are celebrities and you can’t trust anyone. Sure this is gossip for now and I hesitated to post on it, but will be interesting to see.

  5. “‘She’s been putting off meeting them for some time because she was terrified of being spotted at their office, but she is now finally ready to make the move and will be visiting the attorney in the next week or so.'”

    That sounds like pretty weak tea.

    What kind of person who actually knew (and was presumably her confidant) would throw her under the bus if it was actually true?
