Gay-hating Duggars have a lesbian in their family — and she thinks they’re crazy

Published

on

RadarOnline.com confirmed yesterday that the notoriously homophobic Michelle Duggar’s older sister, Evelyn Ruark, is a lesbian.

Ruark has been in a committed relationship with Sharon Callahan for a number of years — and neither she nor her partner fully approve of the Duggar family’s ties to the “QuiverFull” procreation cult.

In 2010, Sharon Callahan spoke to The National Enquirer, saying that she and her “significant other” were “worried about [the Duggar family]. We have often thought that QuiverFull is a cult. It appears to be brainwashing to me.”

Evelyn Ruark appeared in an early episode of TLC’s 19 Kids And Counting, but did so without Callahan, and no mention of her sexuality was made.

Earlier this month, Ruark’s nephew Josh Duggar — a policy director at the Family Research Council — claimed that he and his family were fighting a Fayetteville, Arkansas nondiscrimination law intended to protect the LGBT community in order to save gays and lesbians from the “sad, lonely lifestyle.”

“It just seemed to me that one of the cruelest jokes the devil has ever played is to have that lifestyle described as ‘gay,'” he said.

“We still love everyone as Christ commands, we still have compassion, we still have those kinds of feelings, but we also have our convictions,” Duggar added. “We have our beliefs.”

In a 2013 radio interview, Duggar acknowledged that Ruark was, in fact, a lesbian, but insisted that she still opposed gay marriage anyway. “I have an aunt who has chosen to live that life and I love my aunt. I think she is an amazing person,” he said, but “she believes that marriage is between one man and one woman.”

Published

This Tuesday, CNN's Brianna Keilar got into a heated exchange with Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, fact-checking her assertions that mail-in voting can lead to election fraud. This Wednesday, Keilar did a follow-up on the segment, saying that a coronavirus death in the U.S. is more than "2000-times likely to occur than a case of voter fraud in any type of election."

Keilar then addressed some criticism her network has received over its choice to interview Trump campaign officials when their struggles with the truth are well known.

Trump’s unhinged fans get even more detached from reality as his chances fade

Published

on

A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose. After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on. The economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Americans are losing health insurance by the millions, and Republicans are responding by trying to shortchange unemployment benefits for the millions of people who've lost their jobs.
