Welcome

 

If you aren't one that goes directly to the forum normally, you may have noticed the "main page" here going through various states of transformation recently.  It is still very much a work in progress and will probably continue to change for a little while yet, when my husband suggested the main page looked like "something from the 90's," I decided that change was absolutely in order.

So starting today, we are allowing registration on the blog and  comments will be allowed here for  the first 5 days.  After that discussion will be able to continue on the forum.   You do not have to be a member of the forum to comment here, but you do have to register on the blog to comment.   If things go as planned, you will be able to sign in with your various social media accounts so you don't have to have yet another log in, but that is not going live today, most likely.

If you are a member of the forum, you need to register on the blog to comment here and you do need to register with your forum name and email address.  If you would like me to register you manually, I am happy to do that.  Send me a PM on the forum or post on the thread covering this topic and I will get you set up.

There are probably some glitches as this gets off the ground and I routinely break things, as I always do, but I am excited about some of the things that we will be able to do here that we can't do on the forum very easily (like have a real FAQ! which is still a work in progress).   You will notice that we still have a like button here.   We can actually have a dislike button here as well, but I'm not sure how that will go over so I'm going to wait until there is not so much flux before bringing that option to the table.

If you run into anything wonky, please let me know either here or on the forum.    I know the Our Team page needs work.  I switched templates and the lovely addon that made a beautiful "our team" page was part of that template, so I need to get in there and fix that page, but other than that I think the pages are working correctly.

I have a real content post planned for later today or tomorrow depending on how many fires I create yet today ;)

      I relied on recaps from @QuiverFullofBooks last season and maybe saw 2 episodes. I just watched the first episode of this season and holy cow, what the hell. I always thought of Lydia as somewhat genuine, but her acting in the first Cairo scene is obvious, and bad. The setup is the juxtaposition of Lydia singing a religious song in her room with Kim dancing in a mini skirt and high heels to rap music in the room below. The whole thing is weirdly edited and terribly acted. Lydia is seconds away from laughing throughout and I cannot get a read on what is happening with Kim. The little girls are painfully aware that they are being filmed.

      So, I know this is scripted and they are acting accordingly for ratings, but there were times throughout the past seasons that I thought at least Lydia was genuinely devout and going through a crisis of faith. Now I'm seriously doubting that perception.

      AND WHAT IS GOING ON WITH KIM. She is dressing more like Moriah. Even if the changes in her are scripted, her willingness to play act this for the camera is jarring. I really want to know what her Fundamentalist eldest daughter is thinking right now.

      I predict the network will keep pushing this plotline to the extreme. Maybe next season Kim will 'toy' with the idea of being a lesbian.

      Now I remember why I can't stomach watching any of this.

       

      This is one of the many reasons why I never watch “reality” tv. Because it’s very far from reality. Much of it is scripted and set up. But these people aren’t natural actors. So it’s awful. Kim just wants to be special and famous. She will do anything to achieve that.

      I am going to say that Brenda was also probably a victim of Toby and DV as well… 

      I think she was. I think I heard that somewhere.

      The Willis family is not a good example. Brenda had known for over a decade that Toby was raping their daughters (a daughter told her). She chose to look the other way. Then when he was arrested, she suddenly decided to denounce him.

      Brenda Willis handled things a lot like Anna is handling them--by being in denial. And sacrificing your children to maintain that denial. Brenda denounced her husband AFTER he was arrested--when she had no other choice.

      In a way, Brenda is much worse than Anna, since we have no evidence the M children have been harmed. The Willis girls were repeatedly raped over a period of many years.

      I bet they know about it because I bet David has been urging the congregation regularly to pray for Anna and Josh, and for The judge to give a light sentence/dismiss the charges 

      I would too though sadly if they go to a church where Waller is the pastor odds are they agree with him 

      Not necessarily, I don't know how much David has told them and I wouldn't necessarily think these people agree with David. They don't really know Josh.

      Not only that, AFAIK, there is no case in that crowd where a criminal husband or father was brought to justice AND his victims were supported in the way that the SʻMortons rallied around Katie and her children or the Willis family came together to denounce their father & stand together.

      The Willis family is not a good example. Brenda had known for over a decade that Toby was raping their daughters (a daughter told her). She chose to look the other way. Then when he was arrested, she suddenly decided to denounce him.
