FOCUSING ON THE FLAWS OF FUNDAMENTALISM SINCE 2005
Welcome to Free Jinger. Before you dive in, here is a little bit about what this site is all about.
Free Jinger is a free speech zone. We do not moderate based on anything other than hate speech. If you don’t like what someone is saying, challenge them. We prize logic and reason here, as well as thoughtful debate. We do not believe in deleting content, except in very rare situations. In other words, the internet is forever, so think before you post.
If you found us from a Google search of "Duggars", you should know this is not a Duggar fan site. So what specifically is discussed here at Free Jinger? The main forum is Quiverfull of Snark. Primarily Free Jinger is used to discuss the ways of extremists and fundamentalists, mainly religious fundamentalists, and the impact that has on our society. We also have quite a snarky side. Sometimes the discussion is very serious, sometimes it is humorous. The discussions can get quite heated, and may even border on venting so please, no grammar or punctuation policing. 'Text speak' is not allowed. If topics religious, feminist, or reproductive will harm your psyche, consider carefully before you wade in.
On this site we also have forums to discuss misogyny and other issues going on in the world. And for when you're in a lighter mood, there are a few fun forums for discussing entertainment and hobbies.
If your viewpoint tends to the “traditional,” you don’t need to leave – in fact, you are welcome, because otherwise we’re just a bunch of hens agreeing with each other – but you do need a nice thick hide and the intellectual ability to defend your thinking. “Because Mama and Jesus told me so” is not good enough.
You have been warned.

It seems like JB would have to still throw some dough Jill's way for royalties for past appearances. 🤔 Past CO seasons are available on different platforms and rerun on TLC. Maybe that's how they bought a house? Derrick just isn't getting any raises, or possibly opted for a lump sum when they flounced. Jeremy seems shrewder than Derrick...the Vuolos seem to be in a higher income bracket. I believe that Jinger has her own deal, and maybe that's why they left Arkansas. Maybe the Arkansas clan has some sort of JB executive trust. 🧐 Or maybe Derdick just likes stirring up shit.
It's a puzzlement.
I’ve heard(anecdotal)reports of fundamentalists going into churches and placing anti-Catholic tracts in the missalettes.

Did anyone catch Lauren's quick snark about Henry crying when they asker her how she slept? It was a glimpse into her real personality I think.
And then she quickly followed it up by saying, "But it didn't matter anyway, because I was already up with morning sickness." Someone on the Josiah/Lauren thread recently made a post about Lauren's stunted maturity, and I think this is an example of that. It's like when I was in high school and someone would say, "Oh, I only got six hours of sleep last night," and someone else would jump in with, "Well I only got four hours of sleep last night, so. You know."
Surprised that Steve Anderson, the Pissing Preacher, or one of his current leghumpers haven't actually done this yet.
For that matter, it's beyond common for the wackaloon Protestant "missionaries" to view Catholicism as non-Christian -- therefore, Catholics are deemed in need of conversion to a "true faith," whatever it might be. IIRC, this was the whole premise of the Lockwood family's "missionary" work in Mexico.
Now that I think of it I’m kind of surprised PP hasn’t jumped up on an altar at a Catholic Church during Mass and gone nuts.
Isn’t converting the unwashed masses to the true faith the whole raison d'être of these fundies?
Edit. Fucking autocorrect

His treatment of Claudia is what showed me true colors. I mean, I can see it all, but his tone when speaking to Claudia is just heartbreaking. He has no patience with her. You can see she is testing her limits and seeking attention. The licking thing is a nervous habit. One of my children has struggled with this for years. I honestly don't think that poor child knows that her mother is not coming back.
He seems outright annoyed by his own daughter. A grown ass man can’t muster some patience to a little lost girl who was just orphaned. This ‘man’ is callous.
He fishes for sympathy day in and day out talking about how lonely, lost and sad he is but he doesn’t think his daughter deserves compassion and kindness???
