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

In a bizarre moment, Sunday evening politics turned into a war of wards in President Donald Trump's Twitter comments.

Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera responded to former press secretary Joe Lockhart, who had replied to one of the tweets Trump retweeted from Rivera.

"Gloom settling on Democrats as they realize they’ve taken their best kill shot & missed. Dems in despair. Republicans United. @realDonaldTrump survives & #Impeachment all over but the shouting," said Rivera, hopefully not literally saying that Democrats wanted to shoot or kill the president.

Lockhart responded to the comment by mocking the Fox News host, saying that he was only making the comment to help get his contract renewed.

Published

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is one of the handful of members of Congress who have served as managers for President Donald Trump's impeachment trial. He has not only navigated the past week of the trial, but he conducted the first major hearing.

After the New York Times revealed key facts from former national security adviser John Bolton's upcoming book, Schiff said that it was clear the information Bolton has is why Trump blocked him from testifying.

“I think you have to for the sake of the office,” Trump told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham when she asked if he would block Bolton.
