Live in Scotland, unlikely to move.  May be developing gills.

I studied classics, but my interests range far and wide beyond that, in both practical and theoretical subjects.  I am very interested in religion*, and also in the workings of the human mind - why people think the way they do, why they act the way they do.  These things are probably the main reasons for me being so interested in (and, needless to say, horrified by) fundamentalists.

To be perfectly honest, my first forays into the world of fundamentalism (though I didn't realize it at the time) was through the blogs of ladies who wrote about modesty in dressing.  I was looking for ideas on the internet on how to dress up long skirts, since I had just made the switch to wearing them, and wasn't sure on what to wear.

At first - ah, the way it snares you! - I thought that the blogs were quite nice, in their own way.  There were more biblical references than I was used to seeing on a daily basis, but it would be a funny world if we were all alike, as they say.

THEN!

I began to notice the other postings on the blogs.  The ones about hating QUILTBAG people, about judging those who were not like the bloggers themselves.  I started to realize that these 'Christians' were full of hate and spite for others, and that I wanted no part of that.

And the rest, as they say, is history!

I'll be focusing on the mental aspects of fundies - their adherence to gender roles, their 'education' and so on.

*I'm usually drawn immediately to the heretical\non-mainstream religious ideas and groups first, which probably says more about me than I should really want people to know.  I guess I'm not a follower.  Oooh, fundies would HATE me.

      You can consume hundreds of raw eggs, Allison, but all of those “safe” ones have no bearing on whether the next one is safe or not. It only takes one bad one for you and your unborn child to be SOL.
      Same is true for all the other potentially dangerous things she consumes. Personally, I consider nine months of missing out on certain foods a small price to pay for peace of mind and a healthy child.

      My stepmom helped raise me. So she’s my stepmom. 
       

      I don’t think my mom will marry her boyfriend. At least I hope not. And it’s not because I dislike him. I’ve known him since I was like 7 years old. He’s an old family friend. But my mom is not the marrying type. She’s just too independent. It’s better that they not marry and always live separately. But if they did marry, I would just refer to him by name. I probably wouldn’t call him my mom’s husband though. And it wouldn’t bother me if my kids called him grandpa. Currently they call him by his first name.

      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."

      We believe in Texas with the Wallers. 

      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.
