      Guest Speaker 1.26.17 @ 8pm eastern   01/22/2017

      I am pleased to announce that we have are going to have a Q&A with an ex-evangelical on Thurs, January 26, 2017 @ 8pm.  The Q&A will last for approximately 1 hour.  I will be setting up a subforum for guest speakers as I hope to be able to get some other folks come talk to us. Our guest on Thurs will be Chris Stroop.  Here is his bio: Christopher Stroop grew up a rank-and-file member of the Christian Right in an Evangelical enclave community, Stroop's childhood social milieu consisting mostly of family and people associated with church and/or Christian school. From about the age of 16, Stroop found himself dealing with an increasingly acute crisis of faith that was not addressed properly by the people he talked to about it, and he was subjected to spiritual abuse. Stroop nevertheless went on to earn a BA in history and German from Ball State University (summa cum laude) in 2003, and then a Ph.D. in modern Russian History and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities from Stanford in 2012. Subsequently, Stroop spent three academic years teaching in the School of Public Policy at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration in Moscow, where he kind of sort of almost got in trouble for "teaching Pussy Riot lyrics." Currently, Stroop teaches nineteenth-century European history and Russian Studies classes as a Provost's Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of South Florida and, as a freelance writer and public speaker, speaks out against the abuses of conservative Christianity in general and the the white Evangelical subculture he comes from in particular. You can find many of his writings in this vein on Religion Dispatches. If you would like to support this work financially, please click here (for monthly support) or here (to leave a one-time gift). Stroop's more academic writings can mostly be found here, and you can follow him on Twitter - @C_Stroop.   We are going to use the Q&A forum format.  I will be setting up a special forum just for Chris.  I will open the forum about 15 minutes before the Q&A starts so you can start asking your questions.   We have a few rules.  Failure to follow these rules will get you temporarily placed in the Prayer Closet so we can preview your posts.  If you get put in the PC during the Q&A you will be released once it's over, but lets just follow the few simple rules so none of that is necessary. Rules for Q&A: 1. Be polite.  This is not an event meant for snark.  Chris is taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to us.  He is an expert in the things we discuss here, so let's give him respect, please. 2. One question per post.   Please don't bog him down with a bunch of questions in one post.  We are using the Q&A format so he can easily answer questions.  Putting a ton of questions in one post defeats the purpose.   You can continue discussion on the thread as he answers and ask another question in the same thread if you have one after he answers. 3. Please try to keep thread drift to a minimum during the Q&A.  After it's over, if you want to continue discussion on the topics  and they drift, that's fine. 4.  Be polite! These rules are subject to change as I and the helpmeets think over possible loopholes (cause there is always one person that has to push boundaries)

  1. Plexmas carols are in full swing and Jill has alarmed us all by sharing a demonstration of how her kids sleep in the RV...complete with elbows in faces and no personal space. Continuing on from here:
  2. The Rodrigues family is still touring the US in their RV, complete with silly faces, live-streaming, no seatbelts, and trying to attend another Duggar wedding. Carrying on from here:
  3. Jill Rodrigues has discovered Facebook Live...and the rest of us wish she hadn't. You can follow her journey (every little stinkin' bit of it) on her Facebook, where you'll get to see her do laundry, watch David eat a midnight snack, and voyeuristically observe one of the toddlers sleeping in the baby cage (yes, there's proof). Continuing on from here:
  4. All hail the magical powers of Plexus. Continuing on from here:
  5. Jill is advertising for a new baby cage?!? Are you kidding me!? (This is why I don't read this sub-forum . . . ) Last page of the previous thread ^^^^. Enjoy!
  6. Jill's most recent update was titled GUESS WHO'S PREGNANT!? Most of us guessed it wasn't Jill – and we were right. We're usually not surprised anymore (that's not a challenge!). Video recap by @formergothardite:
  7. Part 16 is here: The latest updates on the Rodrigues family: Jill still uses a lot of makeup. Jill still thinks only about herself and has her kids buy her presents. Jill is still talking about Amy when she said she'd stop. But the biggest news is that we got to see the kids doing some kind of schoolwork, even if it is SOTDRT. No word yet on what curriculum they're using, however.
  8. Jill and David Rodrigues have eleventy kids. They grifted their way into a free house, but crammed everyone back into the RV for the winter just because. Jill has a severe hairspray and green eyeliner addiction. She hosted a gender reveal party for her 12th child in the hospital cafeteria while here sister was in the very early days of recovery from an accident that left her paralyzed. She called the cops about a trans woman in the bathroom at IHOP. She posted about her eldest son on his 16th birthday, telling the world what a conniving child he had been. On the anniversary of her sister's accident, she held a "Remembrance" service. Her sister is still alive. This only scrapes the surface of how terribly narcissistic this woman is. Grab an adult beverage and read up on the Rodriguii: Archive: http://www.freejinger.org/forum/413-rodrigues-family/ Part 15: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/26393-jill-rodrigues-holding-remembrance-for-the-living-part-15/?page=1
  9. They have a house again and are off the road, but still on the grift. Part 11: Rodrigues archive: http://www.freejinger.org/forum/413-rodrigues-family/ Ineptly designed and difficult to navigate blog: http://www.rodriguesfamilyministries.com
  10. It's a Griftmas miracle! Jill finally posted an overly long shaky-cam tour of the new Casa de Rodrguii, complete with superduper creepy Walton's inspired finale! Take some Dramamine and try not to let Jill's voice give you nightmares! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5o5eGLZ5Shk Part 10: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/24793-jill-rodrigues-part-10-is-there-a-home-for-the-holidays/ Rodrigues archive: http://www.freejinger.org/forum/413-rodrigues-family/ Ineptly designed and difficult to navigate blog: http://www.rodriguesfamilyministries.com
  11. Way back in August we saw an announcement of a real estate transaction that implied the Rodriguii had grifted their way into a house, and Jill has made reference to it online. But now it's only one week until Thanksgiving and we have yet to see a single picture of said miracle house. We are SEVERELY skeptical at this point that a house even exists. Meanwhile, Jill, David and their 12 blessings continue to torture the world with their "musical" stylings, Jill hordes the entire green eyeliner supply of the western hemisphere, and continues to be surprised that her sister Amy's husband still loves her, even though Amy is paralyzed.

  12. I was trying to come up with some sort of Gryffindor - Griftin' More pun, but I was afraid you guys might turn on me. So we'll go with this more boring thread title instead. Part 1 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23223 Part 2 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23546 Part 3 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=24543 Part 4 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25063 Part 5 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25488 Part 6 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25888 Part 7 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26333 Part 8 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26654 Ineptly designed and difficult to navigate blog: rodriguesfamilyministries.com Jill and David recently had their 12th kid, daughter Sofia. They have, against all odds, just moved into a house after spending far too long traveling in an RV. It's not at all clear how they got this house, since neither of them is employed. The smart money is on someone from church feeling sorry for their kids and letting them stay there for free/cheap. Jill's sister Amy was paralyzed in a car crash a few months ago. Jill has no boundaries about what she posts about Amy. She is dropping back from weekly updates to monthly updates, presumably under pressure from other family members who don't appreciate her lack of tact and sense. But most amazing of all - Jill and her family got to attend Michael Bates's wedding!!!! And she got her picture taken with many Duggars!!!! She was SEVERELY excited!!!!....................smile.
  13. Why does everyone keep asking about Amy? Don't they know that's old news? Jill just had a baby, and that's something she's only done 11 other times in her whole entire life! She spent the time between contractions making terrifying videos for us to "enjoy." For now all 14 Rodrigueses are crammed into an RV (except for the few that went to help out at Aunt Amy's house, but enough about her), but they claim to be getting a house soon. I guess we shall see. Welcome to the house of grift, baby Sofia. Part 1 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23223 Part 2 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23546 Part 3 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=24543 Part 4 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25063 Part 5 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25488 Part 6 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25888 Part 7 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26333
  14. Jill's sister Amy is back in New York, in a rehab facility. She has shown some improvement with her movement, but is also (last we heard) struggling with C Diff. Jill and David and their brood are back in the RV, and Jill is not happy about it. They have 3 more years of payments on the RV but would much rather be in a house, hint hint. Won't you all be kind enough to send a love offering, kthnx! Precious blessing #12 is due in July. There is no sign of employment for David, or Jill, or anyone really. Part 1 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23223 Part 2 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23546 Part 3 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=24543 Part 4 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25063 Part 5 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25488 Part 6 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25888 Amy Foster's accident (and Jill's reaction to it) here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25512
  15. In the aftermath of a car accident that left her sister Amy paralyzed from the shoulders down, Jill Rodrigues has shown her true colors. And they are garish 80s-makeup colors. You see, Amy's accident was weeks ago, and yet it's all anyone on Facebook seems to care about, which is unacceptable to Jill. Don't people know that Jill is the most important? It took a little creative thinking on Jill's part to work this situation to her own advantage, but she rose to the task! She was able to kick her own parents out of their house and into the RV so that she and David and their eleventy (and counting! ...........smile) kids could move in. Then she commandeered the hospital cafeteria for a gender reveal party for her 12th fetus, complete with 3 cakes, an overdose of pink decorations, and a begging bowl for a brand new stroller. Because, you know, it's been so long since they had a baby around, and it's not like there's another family member who just endured a life-altering accident and is going to need specialized equipment and care for the rest of her life or anything. Come on! Jilly needs a new stroller! Will Jill's parents ever get their house back? Will David ever get a job? When will Jill's conveniently timed bed-rest rear its ugly head again? Find out, won't you, with the continuing adventures of the Rodrigues Family Singers. Part 1 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23223 Part 2 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23546 Part 3 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=24543 Part 4 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25063 Part 5 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25488 The thread about Amy Foster's accident (and Jill's reaction to it) is here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25512
  16. David, Jill, and their band of malnourished moppets are trying to give up the RVing lifestyle, what with the "unexpected" arrival of fetus #12 in Jill's uterus, but alas! the free house (with at least 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a garage, less than 20 minutes from their old church) has failed to land in their laps. Also failing to materialize, despite David and Jill's adamant refusal to get jobs: free money to pay off the RV, fancy-pants microphones and audio equipment with which to torture congregations. Jill is allegedly on bed rest, but is magically able to trot around Disney World (on someone else's dime), visit the Keller family, and tour totally inadequate houses that she and her headship could never afford.

  17. As suggested by Thoughtful. Part 1 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23223 Part 2 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23546 Part 3 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=24543
  18. I thought I'd have a go at starting Part 3 of this sad tale. Part 1 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23223 Part 2 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23546 They Rodrigueses are on the road in an RV with their 11 children and and one on the way. They spent Christmas in FL parked in a church parking lot. Jill tells how grateful the children are for their sleeping bag and a floor to sleep on. Well, 10 of them anyway. One is thankful Daddy built her a nice cage in the closet. They posted a recent youtube video here: Be sure to listen for the "OH MY GOD!" from one of the parishioners when Jill announces "Child #12" in her Michelle baby-voice. ViolaSebastian found this sad, sad older vid.
  19. The Rodrigues Family gets together with some of Jill's relatives for a reunion. Much obsessing about babies abounds (Jill even mentions "the three-month-old," which her sister is currently carrying), there's a birthday for Kaylee (is she a Rodrigues?) complete with hot mess sheet cake, and of course, plenty of camera mugging on Jill's part. Oh, and David appears to have slimmed down some. rodriguesfamilyministries.com/main/?page_id=118 ETA: I just realized that I put this post in the wrong forum, it belongs in snark instead. Sorry about that, mods.
  20. Here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hns0KTlN ... e=youtu.be Urg. It's difficult to see. I'm very happy to not understand what they say.
  21. Again, Jill has left us with plenty of snark fodder. //rodriguesfamilyministries.com/main/?page_id=118
  22. I'm on the Above Rubies mailing list (bc I have disturbing fascination with reading some of the crap in there) and my newest copy arrived today. Right there, in the first few pages, is a giant picture of the Rodrigues family.The very same "I must be just like Michelle Duggar and insert myself everywhere" Jill Rodrigues has submitted a rather long "article" with a giant copy of their family photo from the website to Nancy Campbell and her Above Rubies "magazine". In it she discusses how they had decided from the very beginning to leave god in charge of her womb and how excited they were that she conceived right after being married at 18. "However, a couple of months later, [Jill] had a severe miscarriage." She didn't conceive for seven whole months after that and therefore "thought God was NEVER going to us anymore children" She talks about having five children in four years and how difficult that was. Then, she and David decided to prevent pregnancies! But after a couple of months they gave that up. Then she talks about having nine children in nine years. When the youngest (Hannah) was 18 months she did conceive but then had a miscarriage where she almost died due to hemorrhage and refusal of blood transfusions. (She did finally give in and accept them but only four. She refused the fifth because she "knew that [she] would live, praise God!") She then proceeds to talk about having two more after that. Then they had Angry Baby Olivia. "Our youngest was now over three years old. This new baby felt like SUCH a miracle to me." (I wonder if that's why she's so angry). Here's a semi interesting part. After Olivia, David had given up his jobs (yes, jobs - plural, bc that's what you do when you have ten children at home and have to buy all that crunchy hair spray) so he could go into ministry full time. That's when they moved from New York to West Virginia. Then, when Olivia was seven months, she got pregnant again. She lost that one at 14wks. She felt like she was being punished but then she "examined [her] hears and found a LOT of pride". Apparently she liked to boast to other women how many children she had and this was why she had a miscarriage. So she prayed for forgiveness and now has baby Sadie. She says she has "sixteen souls for Heaven so far!" Since this is a public magazine, and Nancy Campbell encourages people to get multiple copies and leave them lying around, I feel I can snark on this last part with you all. I haven't seen this before, but I can only take so much of their website, which is listed at the end of the "article". Jill's email is [email protected] Seriously?? Seriously?? Anyhow, I've never seen anyone in there before that I've seen talked about recently on here. So I felt you all would appreciate it. The more I read this, the more she seemed like her idol, especially the whole part about boasting to others about her family size. She also does do a weekly radio show where she "encourages women" so I'm sure she's boasting there. And she's certainly boasting in this article about how strong her faith is, even through the miscarriages and the criticism from family and friends to be done having children after Hannah.
  23. Enjoy.... and please tell me what are the lyrics of the songs writted by Jill !
