A paranormal podcast needs to cover this...

456 views

I was reorganizing my bookshelves after taking down my Christmas stuff and I found something unexplained.

A bible.

I know what you're thinking.  "So?  Buffy, you're a lapsed Catholic, you come from a religious family of course you'd have a bible or two around the house."

Because of course you all know my religious background well enough to mock my incredulity.

And you'd be right...I have plenty of bibles around here.  The big family one my mom gave me when I married, a bunch of daily driver bibles (three kids, 24 collective years of CCD and they collect.)  But none of them are NKJV.

Catholics don't do the New Kings James Version.  Ever.  It's not recognized as a legitimate version by the Vatican.

I can hear you now.  "Silly Buffy....your mom was fundy lite after being excommunicated for divorcing your dad.  Surely she didn't use the Catholic bible.  Don't bother Robert Stack about this."

Well, smatypantses....my mom went to some church called Evangelical Free and they used some user friendly version with modern language.  She wasn't a King James Fan.  And her bible was well used from being read daily and well marked and is in a drawer at my sisters house.  I've never seen this bible before.

It looks new, no wear whatsoever.  It was printed the year I was first married so I didn't live at home...I was married to my then husband who was a non-bible collecting Catholic.

It's bound in black leatherish material, gold letters on the cover and spine, slightly larger than an iPhone 6+.

How did it get here?  None of my kids have even veered toward fundyism.

Don't you feel bad for doubting me?  Robert Stack should be all over this unsolved mystery.

Ah, Robert Stack.  Kinda got weird towards the end of his life... he was a friend of a friend.  Refused/unable to housebreak his dogs and according to the friend who visited him, his floor was covered in stretched out disposable diapers, like wall to wall carpet.

Just a little LA gossip.

I do wonder how you got the rogue Bible, though.

If he's going to posthumously solve this mystery my dogs will teach his how to go potty outside.

It's weird right?

If you have to have a ghost that drops weird crap off, chocolates would be better. Or maybe they could take out the trash. BE USEFUL GHOST FRIENDS!

Or at least a nice Opus One, no one is judging here.

Didn't he have prostate cancer?

Since your user profile says you're "Persecuted by Destiny" I say- blame @Destiny. I think she sneaked it into your house while your were on sabbatical, leaving it there in hopes that you would find it and have to come back and post about it. ;) 

Or, could you have gotten it to look up fundy stuff (like maybe when JB made those claims about King James during the Scotland trip)?

It sounds like one of those "give-away" bibles. Some group (maybe the Gideons, I can't remember) gives them out to all the high school graduates in the school district my kids went to.

You give me WAY too much credit!!

Although the @Destiny theory needs investigating...I have requested an accounting for every minute of her time for the last year.

      I thought Henry was Sam for a moment (ok, for an embarrasing long moment, while I tried to make sense of the photo, caption and why Jill posted something coherent on Jessa' account... Blaming a warm night with bad sleep.)

      probably those amber beads that are reported to ease teething pain. Ya, it sounds like witchcraft to me, too, but the fundies are all over that one.

      They're also Dangerous AF.

      I can't take a screenshot because I can only find the post on instragram on my phone, but Jessa got a reaction to the pictures of Spurgeon on the mower, someone saying: "don't you think he should be out of diapers by now?".
      To which she responded: "My philosophy is that if they aren't able to do the whole thing from pulling their pants down and getting themselves on the toilet, to pulling their pants back up and washing their hands, then they aren't ready. Otherwhise it feels like it's actually the parent who's potty training and doing all the work *smiley* Lol! I've been around kids, and I'm aware of the signs of readiness. My 2 1/2 yr old is getting close, but not quite there, so we're not rushing it". 
      Especially after reading all the potty train stories here, I'm glad she's not rushing it!

      What was the person who made that 'shouldn't he be out of diapers by now' remark even thinking? Not your place to judge, Lady. Out of all the things you could snark on Jessa for, I think that, especially considering the whole previous discussion about potty training we've had here, this is not a topic to judge her on like that. If she were to have eleventy kids and have the older ones parent and potty train the youngest, then yes, that would be something to snark on, as we do with for example Michelle Duggar and Kelly Bates, but that is a whole different case than judging her (and Spurgeon) for Spurgeon not being potty trained yet.

      Isn't Jeremy's church called something like Grace Church? I think that is a point probably against? the name Grace, it would be a little odd for them to share a name, and not really Jinger and Jeremy's style.

      My guesses:
      Gracia  / Gloria / Fides

      You know, anyone can do an ordinary name like Grace. But the Voulos are much more sophisticated than the average Fundie.

      Might happen that I share my birthday (next week) with a Duggar. But I really DON'T CARE about it ;)
