Dinah Seppi's Betrothal

55 posts in this topic

At least Old Man Seppi lets the girls go, but the boys seem to be having trouble finding wives.

I want to know what's in that Cup of the Covenant! And I've never heard of anyone signing a Betrothal Covenant in the last 100 years. Do other fundie's do this? From what I can tell, his family seems to be less fundie (see brother's wedding); does he know what he's getting into?

Dustin 'purposed?' Did they just spell proposed wrong, or is this something unique to the Seppis? This is the first time I've gone to their blog, so I'm clueless. :think:

Also, brother Lance Seppi and fiancé Dustin look a whole lot alike. Creepy.

Is "purposed" supposed to be a fundie-clever way of saying "proposed", or should I just sad panda that the Seppis can't even with the vocabulary?

It didnt feel romantic , but more scripted and less spontaneous. Also, there were so many things that seemed odd.

Anyone else wonder how the bride-to-be could NOT have known what was up?

And, yes, what is in that cup? Looks like whatever is poured into that cup must be drained by the two betroth-ees in one gulp each.

That was a very weird proposal. And who proposes in the presence of their parents? It's a private event in my book.

Agreed, Old Man Seppi has proven himself able to loosen the wimmenfolk's shackles, which is more than can be said for some patriarchs. The sons, however, always struck me as the California-fundie-beekeeping equivalent of Lake Wobegon's Norwegian bachelor farmers.

zomg can't unsee the video. I had read the previous post prior to the posting of the video. Dinah has a distinct "Get to the point so I can accept already" vibe going on during the "purposal".

I have never seen this blog before. Why on earth is the older daughter married to a man who appears the same age as her FATHER with a step-daughter that appears nearly the same age as herself? Furthermore, why is it so horrible that the doctor told her to wait 18 months after a C-section if she wants a VBAC? Heaven forbid you care about the mother's health versus how many babies she can pop out for her sugar daddy there.

Creepy. From the betrothal contract, to the things I see on the blog in general, just an all around creepy family!

I've never seen this blog before today although the name sounded familiar, probably since they seem to be friends with other fundie royalty. It looks as though they've taken part in the San Antonio film fest with Vision Forum?

Anyway, Dinah's head covering caught my eye. It looks like she and younger sis wear them, but mom and older sister do not? Her "Head Coverings" explanation in the popular posts section was enlightening-forgive me if it's been discussed already on FJ.

So yeah, there's the Bible verse that proves why women should wear them, and the Rushdoony quotes, and the "it makes me feel set apart by God" laundry list. Then this:

It makes me unique, which I love. It says “I’m a Christian and not ashamed of it. Got a question?†I especially like wearing it in public. It identifies me as someone who has convictions. Searching people often ask questions. A homosexual asked me about why I believe in the God of scripture. Homosexuals especially love to wear the clothing of who they are. They want everybody to see what they are wearing and be reminded of their message. So do I.

I'd love to know what "homosexual uniform" she thinks all gay people wear?

Will she keep wearing the coverings after marriage, or do only unmarried women in her family wear them?

In his proposal did...did he really say that he wanted to be more Christ-like and therefore needed a wife? As in, "Hey, listen. I need a wife. You seem alright. You in?" Nothing about loving her or, hell, even LIKING her. Just that she's a good Christian woman who will help HIM achieve HIS goals. Just another possession being passed from one man to another.

Most unromantic proposal EVER.

Saturday's "homosexual uniform" is cotton shorts and an oversized tee shirt. Rushdoony was a moron....

I thought Jesus/Christ wasn't married? How is getting married making him more Christ-like?

This set up is so creepy. What's with the cup and contract?

The cup sounds like a Loving Cup. These are often silver and two handled, and the bride and groom both drink from it - kind of a symbolic "sealing of the deal". Possibly an old Celtic tradition...can't recall :think:

I'm pretty sure these cups can be used by a larger group of ppl too, to celebrate agreements, pacts etc.

Edit: riffles :)

At least the Seppis advertise their vileness. All those pet fundies essentially believe the same but hide it behind pretty women, fashionable dresses, and craftiness.

I'd be pissed if Mr. Womb made a marriage proposal about him and God (nor would I be married to Mr. Womb, because I know how to use my "no"), but she does seem genuinely happy. Now go, cleave unto each other, and leave us the fuck alone.

I'm confused by the headcovering too, especially considering that there's that wedding picture where the bride's strapless. Also, it might be my Catholic southern European background, but I don't see the point of a solemn drink with no alcohol (I'm assuming it's not wine?)

      I finished the DOL mandated Office Management Systems classed graduated, yeah me. That was Thursday. The next Tuesday I'm at the career counselors office and she says you have to have 20 jobs by the end of the week. I mean, UEI doesn't ask for that, more like 6 for 2 weeks. But OH NO. The DOL is making me job hunt. I think the people on UEI are not damaged or have chronic injury related problems yet they don't have to do this.
      Plus the DOL has not approved my change of doctors. I wrote to the District Admin for SFO and I said I've jumped through every hoop you've put before me and now you won't let me see the doctor that I need to see? I've written my CE 4 times with no response. Not fair. They probably know he'll say no you can't work and it's causing damage to your cervical vertebrae and your shoulder. I have numbness that goes down my neck, across my shoulders and down to my elbows. C567. We shall see what happens. 
      First thing I do in the morning is job hunt and get my 4 or 5 out of the way. Then I can concentrate on other things. 
      Peace. From annie who's not so good.

      I think a watershed moment was reached today.  Juniper has become a snuggle bunny!

      Arlo watched with some interest; he's pondering whether he wants to maybe get some of whatever is making her purr...

      Kitten Update:
      I had company for a few days so had limited time with the kittens.  But before that, last Wednesday, a vet appointment for first shots, worming etc.  I lured Juniper and Arlo into carriers.  I had been hoping to get them both into one carrier so I could lure Bob into the other, but instead they each took one.  So I took them to the vet.  Vet confirmed my sex assumptions -- Arlo is male, Juniper is a rare female ginger, yay!  Neither of them was happy about being trapped or transported or handled by the vet, but after a few initial hisses, no one bit Dr. Joe (or me).  They did great, and after a few hours of hiding right after we got home, they have returned to their old selves.
      That is to say, Juniper has made great progress in being friendly.  I've been able to pick her up and skritch her and snuggle her and pet her several times, and she promptly starts purring!  She seems fairly relaxed but usually leaves my lap or arms pretty soon after I stop restraining her.  I think we're close to her approaching *me* for pets!  Arlo is still pretty wary and although I've petted him a few times I have not picked him up yet.  He might sniff my extended hand or bat at it, but still jumps if I cop a pet along his spine or tail when he happens to be within reach.
      On the one hand, I still can't so much as stand up without them all scattering to under the couch.  On the other hand, some progress -- I can sometimes enter the room without them leaving their windowsill perch or spot on the floor, if I walk v e r r r r y s l l l o o w w w l l l y y y across the the room and don't go too near to them.
      Bob, however, is another story.  Remember he was wilder than the others to begin with.  When I returned from the vet, I spent the rest of the day attempting to catch Bob for his turn.  I almost caught him twice but he escaped both times.  One time I actually grabbed him as he escaped the carrier and if I had been wearing gloves I might have been able to just put him in the carrier.  But since I wasn't wearing gloves, his panic led to several scratches on my hand (all minor and now almost gone, but I did watch them carefully and treat with an anti-infection tincture) and I let him go back into the room.  He's now extra spooked and I haven't seen a whole lot of him since Wednesday.  He's still around, doing fine, in fact I just watched him eat some kibble a few minutes ago -- he's just not so interested in getting to know me at the moment.  Next Wednesday I will break his heart further as I attempt to trap him yet again for another try at the vet's office.
      Twice while holding Juniper in my arm, I've tried to walk out of the room to let her experience at least a whiff of the rest of the house.  But my opening the door causes her to panic so I've aborted that project both times.
      No recent photos of Arlo or Juniper (hopefully I'll have a lot more time with them in the next few days since my company left this morning and also the oppressive high temperatures are supposed to cool down starting tomorrow which will make hanging out with them more pleasant) but here are some of Bob after his kibblefest just now:

      So happy for Neymar and Brazil...that was a spectacular match. Glad they won gold when it really counted. 
      I love the Olympics. Especially since Bolt won the triple-triple and Jamaica did well in track & field, even through injuries and illness!
