Social Work





They have enough stupid ideas of their own without being fed more.

Just sayin....

Yeah, those evil social workers who are just doing their jobs (for little pay) and trying to help people. Such awful people. :pb_rollseyes:

I was in social work. It was thankless in almost every respect. Thanks for reminding me of that feeling.

Where does the dislike of social workers come from?

Yes, our social workers are amazingly knowledgeable, patient, resourceful, and endlessly nice to us.  I literally fed one of them last fall when I sent him home with a box of eggs and tomatoes from the back yard.  It made me happy to do so.

clarification: we are their client.

I was in Social Work too.  Social Workers bear the brunt of criticism when services they try to coordinate fall through or are just unavailable.  Still, even I am forced to admit that some Social Workers are better than others, no-one is perfect, and we all screw up sometimes.

I would be very interested if any of you were willing to do an Ask Me Anything thread. I have been reading Libby Anne's reviews of Anonymous Tip on Love Joy Feminism and I have a lot of questions to ask.

      Oh I forgot to link it, sorry edible kicked in.  I'll find it and edit this post, just gimme a few.



      "Due to helping out in other ways, I was not able to be there with Anna as much as I wanted to. I don't think any of us, not even myself, can understand what she's going through."

      Someone has an awfully high opinion of her importance to the Duggar family...

      Throwing this out , just my 2 cents.

      I think Josh is grinning and smug because he know this trial will burn it all down.  Not defending him in any way as I believe he's a pedophile monster.  I see a great deal of anger/ rage/ fury in Josh -- against his parents, their weird fundie life, his lack of education, the isolation, growing up really poor, the forced/ arranged marriage with the accompanying quiver, his lack of options and opportunities, the whole Dugger-dom disaster

      Yes he's been the golden child - but he had none of the opportunities that the golden child normally has. His original molestation was covered up, he only did Jesus-jail and until now there have been no real consequences for the awful things he's done.  But now .......  they lost the show, the money isn't rolling in. Boob may lose his election, and Josh's story shows the world how terrible, twisted, and sick Duggar-dom really is. That's why he chose a trial so it can all come out

      A tiny part of me thinks Josh wanted to be caught, that's why his internet security was so lax. Josh is smug and uneducated  but not stupid - he's lizard smart..  He knows if he's arrested what they'll find, He knows if there's a trial what will come out.  He knows there's a 99.99999% he's going down hard, but so will Duggar-dom.

      I have this fantasy that Josh will admit in open court he did it. Everything. All of it beginning when he was 12.  That he'll admit that the downloaded CSA is what he likes; what he needs;  what he craves. That he'll say it in such a way that the jury, Anna, his siblings, the extended family, and especially Boob and J'Chelle will have less that zero doubt he's guilty as hell.

      Let this trail burn it down. Burn. It. All. Down.

      If it was similar to other peoples experiences, it meant that she sent her accountability partner what she ate/how she did with temptation/etc every hour she was awake

      That is rough!  It would make me want to eat more. I guess you pray through it?

      think what people on FJ need to understand is the person reporting was overcome with emotions and the details of the horror she was hearing,  and had to leave the courtroom yesterday. )around the halfway point, I think)  Her family members are updating her , and she is then paraphrasing it to Fundie Wonderland and then fundie wonderland members are paraphrasing to free jinger. I do think the way she clarified Mrs holts comments when questioned on it is believable.

      The issue is, is that she is saying that some very shocking things were said when literally no one else is reporting they were said.  There is zero chance that the Sun wouldn't have jumped all over Ms. Holt's advice to get a bigger house but JB was too cheap. They would have devoted an entire dramatic article to just that. When all the people report back very similar things and one person reports back something totally different, that one person is almost certainly lying. It is beyond reason to think that none of the other people would have mentioned these shocking statements read by the prosecution.

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.
