  1. I'm always looking for a good book by former members of the FLDS and other groups of Fundamental Mormonism, and it seems like I'm always missing some. So I thought, with the help of fellow FJers, we could compile a list? I'll start with all the ones I know, then I'd love for others to have a running list, especially as new books are released. Escape - Carolyn Jessop Stolen Innocence: My Story of Growing Up in a Polygamist Sect, Becoming a Teenage Bride, and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs - Elissa Wall Lost Boy - Brent W. Jeffs Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faiths - Jon Krakauer Prophet's Prey: My Seven-Year Investigation into Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Latter-Day Saints - Sam Brower Triumph - Carolyn Jessop The Witness Wore Red: The 19th Wife Who Brought Polygamous Cult Leaders to Justice - Rebecca Musser Church of Lies - Flora Jessop When Men Become Gods: Mormon Polygamist Warren Jeffs, His Cult of Fear, and the Women Who Fought Back - Stephen Singular Shattered Dreams: My Life as a Polygamist's Wife - Irene Spencer Answer Them Nothing: Bringing Down the Polygamous Empire of Warren Jeffs - Debra Weyermann Secrets and Wives: The Hidden World of Mormon Polygamy - Sanjiv Bhattacharya Cult Insanity: A Memoir of Polygamy, Prophets, and Blood Atonement - Irene Spencer The Sound of Gravel - Ruth Wariner Predators, Prey, and Other Kinfolk: Growing Up in Polygamy - Dorothy Allred Solomon Love Times Three: Our True Story of a Polygamous Marriage - Joe Darger Keep Sweet: Children of Polygamy - Debbie Palmer His Favorite Wife: Trapped in Polygamy - Susan Ray Schmidt God's Brothel: The Extortion of Sex for Salvation - Andrea Moore-Emmett Saints Under Siege: The Texas Stat Raid on the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints - Stuart A.

  2. Here's Pat Robertson, being the second biggest douche nozzle in America to a grieving mother. Pat. Go fuck yourself. Then eat a bag of dicks.
  3. Israel Wayne is having a Pity Party

    Has anyone else been watching Israel Wayne whine about how he feels like he doesn't belong because he hasn't rejected fundamentalism? Apparently he's getting all judgey on twitter. "Never judge a system by its abuses. Judge it by its tenets and core values." One wonders why his is protesting so much now. . . http://www.familyrenewal.org/i-apologize/
  4. So I think there is an FLDS family in my area. I have to say I am surprised since I don't live in Utah. Does anyone know much about smaller sects or singular families going off on their own?
  5. More "words of wisdom" from Kirk Cameron And the article goes on to talk about our favorite PP.
  6. A fundie once again steps in it.
  7. Pope Francis Normalizing

    Some Catholic fundies had to display their butt hurt over Francis by sending him a letter accusing him of being a heretic. If I was Francis I'd tell these idiots to go perform intimate acts upon themselves in traffic.
  8. This happened in Australia The couple fortunately was able to locate an alternative venue and another minister for their November nuptials. As for North, he should go perform an intimate act upon himself in traffic.
  9. Outdaughtered

    Anyone have more information on this family? From their posts they appear conservative Christian. Anyone? Anyone?
  10. Can we talk about Fundies and food?

    I just wanted to start an open thread on how much fundies screw up with feeding their kids. If I were a fundie kid, you bet your butt I'd be always sneaking food. Who do you think, among fundies, is best or worse regarding food?
  11. Some of Winston Blackmore's family presented at a symposium in Salt Lake City. Since the FLDS and their break-offs are some of my pet fundie topics, I found the article interesting - but the comments are often even more so. http://www.sltrib.com/home/4165574-155/polygamists-describe-how-to-live-in Blackmore's more sophisticated than the FLDS, but I'm not convinced the lifestyle is any healthier.
  12. "In the past three years, alarm bells have begun to ring about the role religion may play in fostering, or concealing abuse. There have been two substantial inquiries into domestic violence in Australia in recent years. Both have identified religion as a significant, under-reported problem." http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-07-18/domestic-violence-church-submit-to-husbands/8652028?WT IMO very interesting article about how churches fail abused women and how toxic and dangerous the doctrine of "male headship" is.
  13. The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu

    So Hulu will be producing a TV series based off the 1985 novel The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood. There was a movie made in 1990 that was kind of a flop and deviated pretty far from the plot, and oddly enough, a Danish minimalist opera in the early 2000s. Considering the nature of this site, I figured that a lot of people would be interested, because it handles Christian fundamentalism pretty literally. The whole women's subjugation theme is especially pertinent to American women, considering our new overlord- I mean demagogue- I mean president It will premiere April 26, 2017. There's a short preview out already, and I am wicked excited, because it is my all-time favorite book. It looks a lot better than the 1990 movie. I can already see a few differences. Hopefully someone out there is just as excited for this show as I am!

  15. I just saw this on my Facebook feed, and I didn't see this mentioned yet. http://www.ocregister.com/2017/05/03/trinity-broadcasting-network-trial-did-1st-family-of-christian-broadcasting-cover-up-13-year-old-granddaughters-alleged-rape/
  16. John Oliver on grifting fundies

    Yeah I know this is from 2015, but I just came across this today. Among other things it talks about fundies and their love of private jets....
  17. I have no idea what's going on but I walked in to a rousing cat fight complete with screen caps. If you don't know what's happening either, you should go check it out. Carrying on from here!
  18. If any of you ever get the chance, search on you tube and type in "Quiverfull". The video is the fist thumbnail that comes up and the video is posted by paulmartson. Anyway, it shows a fundie family in Virginia being interviewed by Jennifer London (of World Report). The family has seven kids and are admittedly part of the quiverfull movement. The parents (Brad and Allison Shed) raise their kids much like the Duggars. The oldest daughter Olivia, basically mothers her younger sisters (there is only one boy in the family). She talks very bubbly like the Duggar's Jill and is (from her words) pefectly content to practice her future role as Godly wife and homemaker. It is quite the interesting video.
  19. Lately I have fallen down the wormhole of Zero Waste and Minimalism and homesteading on the internet and I am hooked! Some of it, such as making your own laundry soap and buying second hand seems similar to the Duggar family pre-fame when they shopped at garage sales and squirreled away money. With this mindset if they gardened with all those hands they could can, raise their own meat, and grow food too which would save money. Also seems oddly "Un Duggery" to waste money on disposables if they're so obsessed with money. Plus if they are so worried about their bodies being temples why wouldn't they obsess about nutrition vs gorging on tater tots? I knew a Mormon family who was 110% essential oils and organic food in addition to modesty because of how they interpreted the Bible. And wouldn't all the liter from the disposable plates/napkins in landfills make them feel guilty about polluting God's earth? Food scraps alone for all those people would compost into a lot of top soil. And vegetables are so much cheaper than meat/tater tots too, why don't they eat more of that? So confusing!

  21. Christmas Appalachia 1965

    I ran ran across that documentary on youtube and it really moved me and brought fundies to mind, even though it's not what it was about. From 1965 which is only a couple of years before I was born - such a stark contrast in how the media presents things then compared to know. Frank statements about their abject poverty and no softening of the message. people featured talking about how their kids aren't in school due to lack of proper clothing, concern over what their lives will be without an education, families having child after child while expressing fear of the kids they have not having enough to eat or basic necessities. But no mention of the elephant in the room...why are you having more when you cannot care for those you already have? i wonder what these people would think of some of the fundies we talk about. Not the Bates or the Duggars with their money - but like the Nauglers...choosing to deny their children an education, choosing to raise them without running water or a decent home. Would they understand why anyone would chose to underecuate and deprive their children when they are alternatives? anyway..just made me sad. And extremely grateful for my life. I don't wallow but there are times I feel bad for not being able to give my kids all I wanted to give them in life...sometimes resent life not being as easy as I would like. Then I watch something like this that happened in my lifetime (as I doubt all their problems vanished in the following couple years before I showed up) and I think I need to eat a big bowl of stfu because I clearly have no concept of living life of this kind of hardship.
  22. Spotted this. Sounds like not only were the staff at the schools encouraged to spank the kids but most of the staff weren't even qualified. The students got a SOTDRT type education with a healthy dose of prejudice thrown in there for good measure. It's crazy to think that stuff like this has been going on for almost 3 decades without anyone asking any questions. I think this is the reason I'm not a big fan of the idea of faith schools. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/education-news/accelerated-christian-education-europe-ofsted-dfe-inspection-report-a7502616.html
  23. Vyckie Garrison Podcast

    So I found this on Youtube. I poked around on FJ and don't see it having been shared before. Very interesting. I know of her but haven't read much on her blog etc. I thought that this was a nice concise video of her history and her evolution. She also talks about the Duggars.
  24. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/uncovering-problem-forced-marriage-u-s/ I got this link in my facebook feed a few days ago. It was harrowing to watch. Ms. Van Harn mentions growing up in a fundie sect in Michigan, but the name of it is never mentioned. Anyone know what particular branch it is? It also mentions ultra-orthodox Jews.
  25. I didn't see anything about this here, but Jack Chick, the person who started Chick Tracts died yesterday at the age of 92. http://boingboing.net/2016/10/24/rip-jack-chick-father-of-the.html
