I'm getting married in the morning (ding dong)


Vex

1,243 views

The day is finally almost upon us. Tomorrow afternoon my fiance and I will say our vows in front of our immediate families and a small number of friends. All that's left to do is pack my overnight bag and have the shower to end all showers.

 

It's been a road fraught with anxiety but I love Mr. Vex with all my heart and even though I don't think weddings are a big deal, it means a lot to me to commit to him.  I never believed in soulmates, but I know that he's mine.

Here's hoping that it's worth missing the live airing of the new episode of The Walking Dead for (:


And ha. Beat Joy down the aisle.

Hooray! I'm happy for you and your mister. I hope it all goes the way you want it to and that you have many happy memories of the day. :my_biggrin: 

I was happy but very calm on our wedding day. I apparently got all my bitchy, bridezilla feelings out of my system the day before. 

Best wishes for you both! :my_heart:

Gee, Walking Dead is starting to get good again, perhaps you can sneak off for an hour to watch it? Lol.

Ha ha, unfortunately here. It's simulcast with the US so it airs live at 1pm and my wedding is at 3. Technically I'm not leaving until 2 but I'll be doing my makeup and getting dressed and alas there is no way of moving the tv into the dressing room or a mirror into the tv room. I'm totally recording it though! I don't understand the complaints about this season, I think the show has been great since it started following the comics more closely!

Thanks for all the well wishes, guys. I'm very calm about the wedding but definitely very happy too. Right now I'm just hanging out preparing for all hell to break loose later on. If FSM is good, my in-laws won't talk about politics again at the reception. Cross your fingers for me!

      They sing some hymns, with Pastor Henry at the piano or on the violin. The Hawkinses sing, ending with Becky singing Preach On, then Gary comes up to preach.

      I will never read that without thinking Becky's singing the Lola Ray song "Preach On" 

      Spoiler

      Your red dress doesn't come alive
      'til you cross your legs and wave goodbye
      Better late then never
      Better never

      I heard that you got in trouble
      Holding your hand with the company devil
      Better late then never
      Better never (to tell me how much you cared)

      I got it wrong when you went away
      You were talking loud I had my hands up
      Don't come this way

      So preach on
      Keep on with your words
      Talk on
      Leave me in a blur
      Preach on
      Go on with your words
      Keep on
      Keeping me in a blur

      I don't know yet
      I'll find out
      There's nothing wrong with my head
      What I'm talking about

      So preach on
      (You can't go on and on) about nothing now
      You think got it all worked out
      You think you got it all worked out

      So preach on
      (You can't go on and on) about nothing now
      You think got it all worked out
      Ain't nobody listening now
      (What you gonna do)

      So preach on
      You can't go on and on about nothing now

      You think got it all worked out
      You think you got it all worked out

      So preach on
      You can't go on and on about nothing now
      (Keep on with your words)
      You think got it all worked out
      You think got it all worked out
      (Talk on keep me in a blur)
      Ain't nobody listening now

      What you gonna...

      Then years later, when things have finally died down —- he escalates to this. He may likely have been  doing this for a long time before being caught. He would have to know, fundamentalist beliefs aside, that getting caught would lead to very, very bad things for himself and his family. He obviously has a compulsion and even wreckage to his own life isn’t enough to stop it.

      I think he's a sick and twisted human being. He'd be that way as a fundie or a secular person. I also think he's deeply unhappy with his life, knowing that his parents made damn good and sure he'd have a shitty education that would keep him tied to the family in some way for the rest of his life. The only time he'd be able to stay out of trouble would be when he's either in real jail or Jesus jail. I'm sure he's done these things before, he just didn't get caught. (the CSA stuff).

      how long do you think it'd take for him to get busted downloading CSA again? The odds of learning his lesson seem mighty slim. 

      Unless they have some sort of serious, specific, incredibly effective treatment, probably combined with medication - I don’t see him stopping He might wait awhile, he might switch up HOW he’s acting out, but he will do something that crashes everything down around him, and it will almost certainly involve something sexual. 
       

      We talk about how he got no consequences from his previous actions - but really he did. When he was a teen he was humiliated in front of everyone he knew, he probably had the sh*t beat out of him repeatedly, he had to do a ton of manual labor (probably to levels that would be illegal in most US prison systems) AND many years later his behavior was brought to light, he lost his job, his whole entire family at least temporarily lost their show. His family name was dragged through the mud and STILL he decided to cheat on his wife in a fairly public way. If he hadn’t had the previous molestation that brought everything down, that wouldn’t be that huge a deal—- but he knew what was hanging over his head and did it anyway.

      Possibly/Probably a dumb question but those of you who watch the webcasts, did it make you nervous to open an account? I can't think of any reason why it would be risky but I have hesitated to do so.

      From Twitter today: Dr. Tarango @atarango1 (American religious historian at Trinity Univ. (TX) specializing in Native American and Latino religious traditions.)

      re: Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin DuMez and Anthea Butler's White Evangelical Racism: The Politics of Morality in America

      "Finished this today and although I’m a scholar of non-white (Native and Latinx) Protestantism and knew so many of the examples in the book, it is really something to see them all together with such a great argument. Congrats @kkdumez for this great piece of public scholarship.

      Also when read alongside @AntheaButler‘s book it’s like a banquet of white evangelical issues. Butler’s book entirely focuses on race and together with Du Mez on masculinity you really realize how much white evangelicalism is defined by cultural issues, not biblicism."
