On this week's episode, we discuss the four-part documentary Shiny Happy People: Secrets of the Duggar Family (Amazon Prime, Freevee). We address sexual scandals, abuses of authority, gender roles, parenting styles, and more. Our guests are Drs. Christy Snider (history) and Michael Papazian (philosophy).
Our conversation delves into the Duggar family's lifestyle, the controversial parenting methods they employ, and the underlying motivations of the Institute in Basic Life Principles. We explore the gender roles within the Duggar family and the cultural implications of purity culture and courtship.
Lastly, we'll discuss the role of media in spreading the evangelical message and the challenges of engaging with religious pluralism in modern society. So grab a seat at our Church Potluck and join us for this fascinating and enlightening discussion!
