I’m going to do something I never thought I would do.
Last Saturday morning, as I sipped my coffee and scanned my news feed, wiling away the couple of hours before the baby awoke, I was accosted by a story just a couple of days old.
Jessa Seewald, one of the children of the super-fundie reality TV Duggar family, thinks I am going to hell.
I didn’t even know I missed the hubbub over her pink wedding dress, and yet here she is, with the audacity that I am going to hell.
To be more specific, Jessa recently said that “liberal” Christians, i.e. those who don’t believe in hell, are in fact, going to hell just the same as all the other sinners out there. Her remarks were met with prompt cries of “intolerance” and “wouldn’t it be nice if she used her platform to proclaim a message of ‘acceptance.’”
She thinks I am going to hell…
And probably you, and you, and you too. We are all probably too liberal for a Duggar.
But I am going to do something I never thought I would do.
I’m going to come to the defense of Jessa and the rest of the Duggar family.
