th_Sarah_Hebrides_zpsd6217a02.jpgGerman-born, based in the UK. I accidentally migrated to the UK to attend university, and found the British Library. So, I decided to call it “home”, and stayed. Books are my catnip, especially when they deal with history, but I’ll read anything. Unlike Lori Alexander, I actually do love learning; and the implicit idea that knowledge might be dangerous, baffles me.

I came to reading Christian fundamentalist blogs after stumbling across the word “quiverfull” in a newspaper article. Google led me down the rabbit-hole of fundie blogs. My background is one of liberal Catholicism, in Germany, where the mainstream Christian Protestants seem the real liberal ones. I had never heard of Christian fundies, and was hooked. Holy rose-coloured spectacles, had these people never cracked open a history book? Also, why do some people resist spell-check?

After the occasional mention of "Free Jinger", I googled that and realized that I’m not alone with my questions and bemusement. And my continuous amazement, about how little fundies seem to know about actual history. So, with that in mind, I’m going to mostly focus on history. Because fundies don’t seem to get that the past isn’t some magical la-la-land of Victorian ladies in white summer-dresses, and independently wealthy gentlemen. If you have an issue you’d like me looking into, let me know. I don’t pretend to know everything, but I love learning about new things, and keeping that pitchfork of knowledge polished.

      I also do the "my Mom and her husband" thing, because her husband is a scoundrel who doesn't deserve the dignity of a name. My aunts refer to him as "it."

      Oh! I didn't realize they'd actually moved. I assumed they were still going back and forth from the Duggar compound. How sad. I hope Mac's still in regular contact with whichever aunt she was closest to.

      Much of Kendra's uber strict uber trad Catholicism is exactly the same as the fundies we follow.

      Kendra definitely believes she holier than the pope. Her hubris about this knows no bounds.

      She absolutely adored Pope Benedict (Best. Pope. Evah.).

      She seriously dislikes Pope Francis.  As I mentioned above, several years ago she wrote Pope Francis (and encouraged her readers to do the same,) because she said he was doing something/ said something wrong.

      She wanted him to know it was wrong and to stop it. Because she disagreed with him. She posted the letter in her blog for her readers to use as a template.

       

       

      Just imagine being Catholic and thinking you are a better Catholic than the pope.

      This is only because the Christian books are absolute crap. There are so many terrible Christian books out out every week. Many are terrible quality, boring, or just plain bad. She thinks this proves she is an amazing book writer. No. She’s just mediocre in a sea of garbage. Plus it’s on sale right now.

      It's not even all Christian books. It's the number 1 book for "Christian Family & Relationships".  That's such a niche genre.
