As long as the times refuse to change, we're going to make a hell of a racket.


So Salon has an article


quote:

If a parent learns that a child has been sexually abusing a sibling they are required to report this abuse to the appropriate child protection service agency in their area. If the child is over the age of 12 the child protection agency is required to report this behavior to the police. The police will decide whether to charge the perpetrator. Children under the age of 12 cannot be charged with an offense. While it may be incredibly stressful for a parent to report this behavior, not reporting it continues to put the victims in the home at risk. It also minimizes the possibility that the offender will get appropriate treatment that will help prevent him from offending in the future.

Is it really reasonable or helpful to 'require' parents to turn their own children into the police? That seems like the 'then just don't have sex' argument towards teen pregnancy. No one's gonna do that. It seems like it might even make people less likely to report.

Don't get my name wrong,
If you want to touch me there.

Serious question: what do the Quiverfull and associated fundies think of black/hispanic people?

Obviously they hate brown people as filthy unclean heathen muslim/hindu/buddhists, but what do they think about black Christians?

Obviously as rednecks they hate them, but I am curious as to how they justify it biblically. Do they use the Mormon "their skin is darkened because they are sinners" poo poo?

think of the thin biblical justifications they use for their lifestyle and the education they use

Upset with a child molester sympathizer is now considered "trolling" and "libtard propaganda"

The funny thing is whenever you click on the profiles of these people they never have real pictures, it's always photos of animals and they always have really generic names.

He's as good a candidate as you can realistically hope for if you want the GOP to lose. He'd be a tough sell even if he hadn't gone to bat for a pedophile a couple weeks after formally announcing his candidacy.

Interesting stuff. These women have such lovely lives it's unbelievable. I was watching a documentary the other day about that woman who drowned her five kids in the bathtub. I didn't realise she was part of Quiverfull. Her husband was an absolute poo poo who took her off antipsychotics and kept coercing her into more and more pregnancies despite her post natal depression. She had to homeschool five kids, and wasn't even allowed to use disposable diapers to make life easier. One of the reasons she drowned the kids was because she was convinced one of them would grow up to be a gay prostitute.

The Quiverfull movement: death or molestation.

i mentioned this earlier, but i actually met that guy quite a few times and i was around a lot of people in the quiverfull/patriarchy movement when i was young. my family, as my dad put it, "circled that vortex for a while."

there's actually some theological underpinnings to the quiverfull thing and the political activism...basically they believe that the rapture will be brought about by christians taking over the world politically (see this). so the whole project of making lots of babies and getting super engaged in politics is basically to create heaven on earth and bring about the end of the world. once doug phillips remarked in my presence after hearing that australia only has ~20 million people, "we could take that place over."

I remember seeing videos of polygamist wives defending their lifestyle as being so awesome and wonderful but in reality they were just never given the option to actually see any other way of living, they were born into it and brainwashed into thinking their way was the best way. Same goes for the the Duggar kids. That's why they have to be home schooled and chaperoned constantly. If they actually experienced the outside world, they'd loving flee as soon as they were old enough.

From what I've read around, any of those FLDS women end up needing outside help to not only escape their situation, but especially afterwards to not get dragged back into it because those communities have members in places of power. I wouldn't be surprised if it's a similar scenario with Quiverfull. For all we know the women desperately want to get away but simply can't because of how controlling the culture is.

That state trooper serving 50+ years for child porn is still trying to cover his rear end, like it makes a difference at this point:

quote:

He maintains that Jim Bob and Josh Duggar told him Josh had inappropriately touched one girl through her clothing while she slept. They said "it only happened one time," the former state trooper told In Touch.

Hutchens told In Touch that the Duggars' original account of the incident played a part in his decision not to report the alleged abuse.

"I did what I thought was right and obviously it wasn't," he told In Touch. "If I had to do it over again, I would have told him immediately I am going to call the hotline and contacted the trooper that worked those cases and have a full report made. I thought I could handle it myself."

"I have lost a lot of sleep over it. I am a Christian myself and I worry that something else may have happened," he says. "I would be responsible for it, in my opinion, by not reporting it. The young girl should have been my first priority."
