The Labor Day eve line: Plus, Duggar news

Posted By on Fri, Aug 29, 2014 at 3:10 PM


Here's an open line to start the Labor Day weekend, plus the headline roundup. Football? Now? Really?

Also:

* DUGGAR DOINGS: An evangelical Christian figure has denounced the Quiverfull movement championed by Jim Bob Duggar in his prolific breeding.

Michael Farris, founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association and Patrick Henry College, described the Quiverfull ideology – which promotes procreation and the primacy of men – as “truly dangerous” in the wake of two sex scandals involving leaders in the evangelical movement.

Farris issued a newsletter article Thursday saying he had been uncomfortable for years with the teachings of Doug Phillips and Bill Gothard, but he had not spoken out because his organization defends the right of anyone to homeschool their children, reported Right Wing Watch.
