    Your link at 10:46 by Fleming Rutledge is absolute gold… My fear is that she is shouting into the wind.

    She’s a special thinker.
    She got enough response to follow up…

    Regarding Josh Dugger on bail, if he was not a celebrity he would have been locked up and bail denied.

    That said, if Josh is convicted of his crimes, he will discover same-sex relationships firsthand as a bag of chips to be passed around by the sisters. Assuming he doesn’t get shanked first. Chomos and pedophiles are consisted to the bottom and the worst in the prison hierarchy, even worse than snitches.

    Let us hope she continues to be heard (and read).

    Very saddened to hear of Marva Dawn’s passing. I heard her speak at a local Lutheran church at least ten years ago. Still remember it. She was so joyful!

    It’s kinda buried in the CT story, but she suffered a great deal, physically. Her books on the topic are worth their weight in gold, IMHO. Her stuff on “worship wars” was far from her only interest and contribution.

    “Frail in body but beautiful in soul,” is how one sem professor described her life.

    Josh Duggar.
    When news broke I guessed it would be financial. Part of it is my contrarian nature to not go for the obvious sexual direction. But it was also a personal desire not to see his family burdened. I may never have traversed the deepest bowels of Gothardism, but I experienced enough to feel sympathy.

    I’m now wondering if my first guess was true after all. I question if he acted alone. Gothardism was always a wolfpack. Wolves usually don’t act alone. My question now, is will a thread connect to other Gothardites?

    Marva Dawn was a giant in the faith. I leaned on some of her work in the process of completing my dissertation on chronic pain and spiritual formation.

    Memory eternal.

    bob1, pstrmike,

    Well said.
    How I wish that saints like her were known far more broadly than the ones who are today…

    The UFO link is odd. I read half and scanned the rest. I not sure what to make of UFOs. I’m also not sure what to make of the cover up and that officials take it seriously.

    “The current charges are the latest in a number of sexual scandals for Duggar. In May 2015, it came to light that his father, Jim Bob Duggar, reported to police years earlier that Josh Duggar had molested underage girls while a juvenile. The molestations had allegedly occurred before the TLC show began, when Josh Duggar was 15, and records regarding the allegations had been sealed since 2006 before being obtained by In Touch magazine.“

    WHAT?!?! Was the dad desperate for money because of all those kids?

    These things always come out eventually, given enough time, and they often get worse.

    Heart breaking and sickening
