    John David and Abbie 5: Pancakes with a Side of Wedding

    I never said anything snarky about them, but i do understand wondering about my motivations. That’s easy, actually. I like it here. I like seeing what other people think about them. Sometimes i agree with what is said, sometimes i don’t. I am not close to them, not even a little bit, so i’m always surprised when i get an invite. They are courteous enough to invite me, i respected their wishes with regards to pictures (which apparently not everyone did, since there are pics floating around), and i like the people here so i came & shared that it was a beautiful wedding. I think it would be different if i came here & started snarking on them, but i didn’t. As for the timing, the wedding had been over for quite a while before i posted anything. I don’t know how long the reception lasted because i didn’t stay for it. They could still be partying at the Ada airport!
  2. "Embrace what God made us". Lovely, Jill. So when will I see you embracing your natural hair color? Or going make-up free? Why do you keep embracing the image of yourself that your sinful nature feels you ought to be rather than the way God designed you to look? You too reject the way God made you. God clearly never intended for you to be blonde, yet you seem to think it's OK to be blonde anyway. So is it SOMETIMES ok to reject God's design? If so, when? And by what means? Because people can love each other without any artificial intervention, but YOU rely on man-made chemicals and lengthy, regular processing in order to override God's plan for your hair. And if God has a plan for our genitals, does He not ALSO have a plan for our hair? Is not every hair on our heads known and accounted for by God? So by your own logic, what right do YOU have to direct your hair differently than how God designed it? Because it could easily be said that you "feel" the "need" to dye your hair far more accurately than any example you gave. And clearly you "feel" the need to plaster yourself in makeup because of vanity (which is not always the case for make up enthusiasts, but it certainly is for you). And as you said: sin is sin. And God condemns vanity as such. Multiple times. Vanity, unlike homosexuality, has an entire book of the Bible devoted it its condemnation. And so if God's law always trumps Man's law, why do you feel so free to disregard Jesus' specific commandments such as for only those without sin to throw the first stone or to refrain from judging others with a beam in your own eye? You CONTINUALLY do this, Jill. You criticize EVERYONE who isn't exactly like you, but you fail to see that your way of life is not above reproach. In fact, it is deplorable. And because you are neither free from sin NOR above critique, you are CLEARLY commanded by Jesus himself to refrain from passing a sentence or judgement on others. Yet you do so. Constantly you do so. Your own logic condemns you, Jill. Your own Bible condemns you. And you will have to answer to Jesus for the things you do here and for the hate you give to the world. Jesus knows your heart, Jill. And I think he knows that you use Him in order to feel superior to your fellow man, which means you use His name in vain, which is specifically forbidden. If you are wrong here, then you are wrong and ought to face consequences including push-back and censure. But that's the better outcome for you. Because if you are RIGHT, Jill, then you ought to face damnation.

    John David and Abbie Grace 4: Wedding Planning

    Alright folks, let’s just get this out of the way right now: The Totally Accurate, in No Way Made Up, VelociRapture Guide to FJ Fundie Wedding Discussions - - Someone will post information about the Church/ceremony/attire/bridal party/venue/food/reception/getaway vehicle/ etc. Example: ”Here are some photos showing off Abbie’s gown and veil!” - There will be multiple comments that criticize John and Abbie for their wedding choices. Examples: “Ugh! ANOTHER modesty nightmare that isn’t altered to the exact specifications I feel are proper! How dare they commit such a crime against fashion!” ”Ugh! Abbie has such gorgeous hair and she decided on THAT monstrosity of a hairstyle?! What a waste!” ”She wore THOSE shoes with a gown like that?!” ”Her veil/hair is obscuring the details on the dress. WHERE THE FUCK ARE MY FAINTING SALTS?!” - Other posters will chime in to compliment them. Examples: “Maybe she didn’t want to show off every curve she has. She looks happy and confident and that’s all that matters.” ”That style of dress really compliments her figure!” - Others will chime in to defend them, but will somehow piss off other posters. Examples: ”Not everyone wants to flash their boobs to the audience. Personally, I think strapless dresses are for hussies. What Abbie picked is timeless and lovely.” ”Cake and punch receptions are completely normal around here. Not everyone wants a snobby and elitist East coast wedding.” ”At least she’s wearing shoes, amirite?! Lol!” ”<Insert married Duggar woman here> GAINED EXACTLY ONE POUND IN HER FACE AND HER STOMACH LOOKS SLIGHTLY BIGGER THAN NORMAL!!! SHE JUST ATE A MASSIVE BURRITO, BUT I BET SHE’S TOTES PREGNANT!” There will be at least one skirmish that will turn into a massive debate/derailment. Nothing will be agreed upon by everyone, someone will get their feelings hurt, multiple jokes will be made, and we will once again agree to never again discuss multiple topics (only to forget immediately when the next wedding happens.)
  4. The Day is almost here!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've put some wedding dress predictions under the spoilers <3

    Thank you. I know i have a very fine line to walk, which is why i don’t post a lot. I’m not out here giving all the details because i respect their privacy. Do i want to? Of course! But i enjoy being given the courtesy of getting invited & will continue to be guarded when i post here.
  6. I was just in the basement switching laundry when I saw this... Fair warning, folks, there is a lot of sin under this spoiler.

    JRod 81: Return of the Reborn Dolls

    My son was born a micro preemie and passed away shortly after birth. I started going to a support group for stillborn and infant deaths and so many people had those creepy ass reborn dolls. The meeting was more of a playdate with everyone strolling their "baby" or wearing the "baby". It was so unsettling! Maybe it helps some people, but to me it just seemed like they were living in an alternate reality and not properly dealing with their grief. I couldn't go back. No way.

    I believe you can win one in a fiddle contest.
  9. I just have to say that it seems like there is nothing he can do to make some people happy now. Whatever he does, the goalposts move. First it was "Josh Harris needs to apologize". He did. So it became, "Josh Harris needs to say he was wrong all along". He did. Then it became, "Josh Harris needs to discontinue publication of the book". Now he is. And it's still not enough. He can't undo it all. It's not possible. But name me another evangelical leader who has ever come out and said, "that shit I made a pile of money preaching to the whole world? That was bullshit". There isn't one.
  10. 1) Ugh. 2) I've heard "genitals are not Legos" before, but have never had to explain that genitals are not extension cords. 3) There's more to sex than making prongs fit sockets. If Jill, having conceived at least 18 times, cannot see the problem with this image, her "hot sexy manbeast" has got to be terrible in bed. 4) There's more to love and marriage than sex. Again, Jill's experience does not seem to have taught her this. 5) I don't think anyone "feels" like becoming a drug addict or alcoholic or schizophrenic, any more than someone "feels" like getting cancer. 6) If you don't like something that's permitted by civil law, it's easy enough to just... not do the thing? Marriage equality is legal, not compulsory. Jill is still allowed to stay in her sex-obsessed heterosexual marriage with Plug-In Dave. 7) Ugh. Uuuugggghhh.

    John David and Abbie Grace 4: Wedding Planning

    The wedding was indeed in Ada & it was beautiful! I can promise you that the reception is still going on, so posting all the info was a total douche move by Pickles. All guests were asked to not post any pictures to social media until after the 14th. TLC was indeed filming, but there were no pauses for dress-fixing or anything like that. It was your typical baptist wedding. Abbie’s dress was gorgeous! Sparkly, cap-sleeved, silver sequin belt. John David is obviously head-over-heels for her!
  12. Cruella deJill, Cruella deJill, If she doesn't scare you, no fake Christian will! She'll try to sell you snake oil in a pill, Cruella, Cruella deJill. The paint on her face, the spray in her hair, All trans folk in bathrooms had better beware! Notorious for grifting with great skill, Cruella, Cruella deJill. At first you think she's just a little pushy, But after selfies and a few livestreams, You come to know that she Is nasty as can be, Like Satan in a falling can of beans. Cruella deJill, Cruella deJill, If she doesn't scare you, no fake Christian will! She'll try to sell you snake oil in a pill, Cruella, Cruella deJill. (I'm only mildly sorry)
  13. So, for Jill, mental illness is a sin someone chooses. Fuck you, Jill
  14. @Georgiana I am a little bit late to the party but thank you for posting the dress review and photos, you beautiful no makeup, educated, literary genius, feminist millennial. Looks like I'm going to be visiting and ordering from Neesee's next week. O.T. but I don't get why people give millennials such a hard time because the ones I am friends with are totally kicking ass whereas when I was in my 20s I had dropped out of Uni, was still living with my parents and working at a damn coffee shop. So you get to be my spirit daughter because I have two sons. Hi Jill! Since @Georgiana posted a photo of herself in for realz modest dress and no makeup *GASP* here is a pic of me which will follow. I am the same age as you. I drink, I smoke, I swear, I had an abortion 25 years ago because at the time I knew I was not fit to be a mother (no regrets, no big deal, no trauma, so fuck you and your pregnancy support center bull shit), I work, my husband (who also WORKS) and I BOUGHT and did not grift our home, we only have one car (ONE CAR that we bought ourselves), I rarely wear makeup, my children are age appropriately buckled in to our ONE vehicle, and basically the only thing we have in common is that I shop at thrift stores and oh I am playing the piano again. Bon Soir!

    I agree! My parents had 5 kids & we didn't have alot of money. I remember one year for Christmas, all 5 of us each got construction paper, scissors, pipe cleaners, markers, stickers, glue, glitter, etc etc for Christmas & we were thrilled!!! I'll never forget years later talking about Christmas & a few of us were telling my mom that that was our best Christmas ever & she started crying. She told us then that they had no money that year for Christmas and they didn't know what to do. They knew they "couldn't" just not give us anything, so my they decided the cheapest thing to do would be that, so thats what they did. She was so touched that that was our best Christmas ever and as little kids, we absolutely LOVED it.

    The only reason you live in a free and democratic society and have the right to be left alone is because of voting. Yes, you have the freedom to choose not to vote, but frankly that's a really shitty choice. Take a few hours and familiarize yourself with the candidates running and the main issues. Decide what's most important to you and who reflects that best. Then take an hour or two (or often far less) out of your day and just vote. It's very easy and it's incredibly important. Your vote absolutely makes a difference. Even if you only do it for purely selfish reasons, if you like your life and the freedoms you have now, please vote.

    JRod 81: Return of the Reborn Dolls

    I remember several years ago telling an evangelist's wife (a distant relative through marriage) that I was going through a difficult bout of depression and was taking Paxil. She reprimanded me and told me my depression was from the devil and I should pray it away. Four changes in prescriptions and a couple of decades later, I still have depression and I still take meds for it. Right now, it is well under control, thanks to an awesome mental health provider and the right combination of meds. Did I CHOOSE to be depressed? Nope. While briefly off meds, all the wishing, hoping, and praying didn't make me suddenly happy. Jill implying that mental illness is a choice is almost like saying Amy is choosing not to walk. I know that's a severe comparison, but TIJWTA.

    John David and Abbie 5: Pancakes with a Side of Wedding

    In the last thread @formergothardite said "It doesn't really matter if she only said nice things because she is admitting she is doing something she knows the people whose wedding she just attended would be upset about." I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I don't think @FrozenSmile ever admitted to that? She said "I’m not out here giving all the details because i respect their privacy. Do i want to? Of course! But i enjoy being given the courtesy of getting invited & will continue to be guarded when i post here." I think this means she was careful not to post details, because that would have upset them (and she was trying not to do that). She also respected their wishes by not posting photos. Also the tone here on FJ about Jabbie's wedding has been pretty much the least snarky and most supportive of any Duggar wedding. No one has been 'mocking' them. And I really don't see a problem with someone who had already been a member of FJ for some time before even getting invited to the wedding reporting back and saying it was lovely.

    So, can we make the next thread count say "Jill Plugs Gay Marriage?" Wink! She is gross, by the way.
  23. Jill, people generally don't "choose" to be gay. Or have mental illnesses, or pretty much any of those things listed except murder, which is pretty darn rare. They don't choose those things, or "feel like" those things. I don't "feel like" having to take prozac every day, it's kind of a mild annoyance, actually. But if I don't, then I am basically incapable of doing much more than dragging myself to work and home, then sitting on the couch trying to muster the energy to get up long enough to go to bed. I'm always amazed when I see people just doing things, rather than having to psyche themselves up to do them. Even now, super simple things sometimes seem insurmountable to me. I know it takes 2 minutes to brush my teeth, a couple minutes to change into pajamas, etc. But my brain sometimes equates that with running a marathon. I intellectually know, that if I have to be somewhere at 1pm on a Saturday, I still have the whole morning and evening to do whatever, and I really don't need to worry about the thing until just before time to leave. But my brain seems to think that my whole day is tied up, and lost, and I'll spend the whole morning trying to mentally get ready and the whole evening recovering. That's ridiculous, I know. But it's not something that can be prayed away! I've tried! Meds help, a lot. I'm getting so much better at this life thing. Still a struggle some days, but way better than it used to be. People don't "choose" to be any of those things she listed, anymore than she "chooses" to be a narcissist or her kids "choose" to give up a chicken leg, or her sister "feels like" not being able to walk.
