As we previously reported, some of Jinger Duggar’s own supporters may not like her new book.
be truly free Not very kind to Free Jinger fans.
Ginger may be ‘free’ from the toxic ideologies of her childhood restrictive cult…but she explains otherwise I want actual self-determination.
In fact, Ginger may like choosing the clothes she wears…but she says she doesn’t feel confident making moral choices for herself.
The full name of Ginger’s memoir is Certainly Free: My Story of Unraveling Faith from Fear.
In the book, the former reality TV star “talks about how he began to question harmful ideologies at a young age.”
“And” the publicity for her book makes fun of how she “learned to embrace true freedom in Christ.”
In an early chapter of the book, which will be released on January 31st, Ginger takes aim at and denies the “Free Ginger” movement.
Clearly, this was a smaller group than ‘Free Britney’. Also, it started a few years ago on her 2005 forum (yes, remember the actual forum?).
Ginger admits the name entertained her…but was offended by the idea that people wanted her to renounce her faith.
For Ginger, freedom—at least the kind of freedom she actually wants—means not letting religion control what she eats and wears.
(Or disallow island cults to weaponize religion and boil it down to a rigid set of lifestyle rules)
But, not surprisingly given her fundamentalist background (and current beliefs), she considers religion essential to making moral choices. Even if you remove the “choice” from the equation.
“I’ve come to understand that unbridled freedom doesn’t make for a better life,” Ginger wrote astonishingly.
“It often leads to more bondage in the end,” she adds. For the record, she’s not meant to be sexually twisted.
“Why? Because it puts me in control of my life,” Ginger explains.
“Given endless options and the responsibility of figuring out what makes me truly happy,” Ginger posed.
“I have a hard time committing to anything,” she confessed.
Of course, she overlooks the fact that her lack of opportunity to make moral choices and build ideas from scratch as a child is behind her “struggles” as an adult. There is a possibility.
Just like someone who couldn’t play video games as a child struggles with certain things as an adult.
Part of childhood is considered to be developing life skills.
And if someone denies you the chance to work on it, well, it can be hard to pick up on as an adult.
And she needed to write more about people she wanted out of a world of restrictions.
“The curator of the website saw a girl in me who I thought didn’t have a good life because her freedom wasn’t restricted.
She continues: Happy. ‘”
However, at the end of the first chapter of her book, Ginger declares that these supporters were “wrong” to feel that way.
Clearly, Ginger isn’t the only one who believes that morality can only come from religion. Even those of us who are believers can admit that this is not true at all.
Perhaps Ginger would have struggled less if he had the opportunity to develop his own ideas about the world. Her beliefs, her sense of right and wrong, will become more authentically her own if she learns to figure things out for herself. I am afraid to accept.
