  • Michelle Duggar's Sister And Her Girlfriend Think She's Brainwashed By A 'Cult'

    Michelle Duggar has a sister who reportedly is a lesbian – and she has some concerning words abut her.

    Michelle Duggar, the matriarch on TLC's reality TV show "19 Kids and Counting," has an older sister whose reportedly is a lesbian in a long-term relationship. 63-year old Evelyn Ruark lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her partner, Sharon Callahan.

    On their website, the Duggars posted a photo, "Michelle with her siblings - Evelyn Ruark, Freda Benderman, Garrett Ruark, Cathy Arnold & Pamela Peters - Spring 2011."

    It's the only photo of Evelyn, and a search of the site produced no other mention of her at all.

    In fact, aside from a reported appearance on an early episode, the Duggars and Evelyn Ruark seem to have virtually no public appearances or commentary about each other.

    But Ruark's partner, Sharon Callahan, 52 says that the couple is worried about Michelle.

    Why?

    Many believe the Duggars subscribe to the beliefs of the Quiverfull Movement, a small conservative evangelical often-Protestant sect found mostly in the U.S. Quiverfull adherents belief in using absolutely no form of birth control, including family planning – hence, probably, the "19 and counting."

    The Duggars, however, have stated they do not. 'We are simply Bible-believing Christians who desire to follow God's Word and apply it to our lives."

    Those who subscribe to Quiverfull also believe that the role of a woman is as a mother, child-bearer, and servant to her husband.

    Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:
    and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
    As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;
    so are children of the youth.
    Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
    they shall not be ashamed,
    but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

    Psalm 127:3–5

    But sister Sharon Callahan seems to believe they do.

    And it's no wonder then that Radar reports Sharon told the National Enquirer several years ago, “We are worried about them," and that they "have often thought that QuiverFull is a cult."

    "It appears to be brainwashing to me," she added.

    Meanwhile, Josh Duggar, who is the head of Family Research Council Action, recently spoke of his Aunt Evelyn being a lesbian.

    “I have an aunt who has chosen to live that life and I love my aunt. I think she is an amazing person,” he told listeners— before assuring fans that she also is opposed to gay marriage. “She believes that marriage is between one man and one woman.”

    Josh also recently held a "Rally for True Marriage" in Arkansas. Here's a short clip from the rally:

      Escape plan: Jinger could run away and go live with her lesbian aunts. There’s a spin-off show. Free Jinger!

      So if one of their grown children by chance got a real taste of the world would Michelle and Jim disown them? I wouldn’t wish anything terrible on the duggars. I just one day want to see one of their grown kids leave the nest and be normal! I would love to see the adult legal age kids leave the nest! I want to see what Michelle and Jim would say.

      Worried about her sister? Isn’t it kind of too late now? She’s already had 19 kids, the damage is already done, can’t worry about her now….

      “You take the blue pill, and you will wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
      The blue pill is christianity in it’s present form – just another matrix.

      I wonder if the Duggars ever think about what this world would be like if every family had 19 kids, and their kids did the same for generations. Would they still keep believing in no birth control when their babies started starving to death – or would they keep screwing and praying…

      Josh Duggar is as educational impaired as are Joe Bob and Michelle Duggar. The bible is neither a history book nor a medical text—at best it is literature, while in reality it is pure fantasy: any scholar can show the numerous plagiarisms in it: from Hercules becoming Samson, to Mithra becoming Jesus. Nowhere in the bible dose it state that marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman: Jacob married two first cousins, Abraham married his sister Sara and her maidservant Hagar, Solomon married 700 women and 300 concubines, and the eroticism in the Song of Solomon beats most porn in Hollywood productions.

      For Josh to claim that he is pro-evangelical marriage shows he has never read the bible, as no where is there a marriage oath. Marriage, as at Cana, was a feasting to celebrate the recognition of two pledging themselves to be helpmeets for each other and get drunk in the process (why Jesus changed water into wine, etc). Stoicism and self-denial are not there either as the people saw Jesus as a drunkard and glutton (Luke 7:34 and Matthew 11:19).

      Even the announcement to Mary matches the legends of all other religions where their start comes with the rape of a young girl. I am tired of the biblical illiteracy of the Duggars and those who will not think for themselves and see their religion for what it is: demeaning and degrading people.
