The IFB and Curses (QF: The View from Here)

This series of posts results includes excerpts from information shared with a journalist in August of 2015 who had questions about the Quiverfull Movement as it related to the Duggar Family.

Finally, what struggles have you seen from the women who leave QF? Do they have PTSD? And are/were any of them in danger from the people they have left behind?

Response Part Two:

The Independent Fundamental Baptists (IFB) that classify as QF/P though may not formally embrace the title have a long history and reputation of pursing and harassing former members. (They are the largest publishers of homeschooling and Christian education textbooks.) They seem focused, however, on those former members who voice open dissent against them or threaten to reveal damaging information. 

Concerning those who threaten with the use of the legal system who are outside of the IFB, they also seem to only focus their attentions on dissidents who threaten to reveal information that they would rather keep hidden from the public.

Apart from that particular group, it has been my experience that after the pronouncement of curses, those harbingers of doom don’t tend to interfere with those who have left. Former leaders may be called on later to participate in ecclesial courts involving member who have “cult hopped” into similar churches who share information with one another.
