  1. Abigail is taking the WV bar exam in July. She's decided she wants to be a lawyer again to fight for environmental causes. http://www.abigailbenjamin.net/abigailsblog/2016/6/22/have-strength-of-heart I'll believe it when I see it, but if this helps give her a non-batshit-insane goal to work towards, then good for her.
  2. Abigail has a new, trendy-looking blog. abigailbenjamin.net She's still using her full name, and the real names of all her family members.
  3. It's been a while since we checked in on Abigail. She says when it comes to religion, she feels like a foster kid. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2015/04/my-unexpected-easter-gift.html She also had a fucking Christian seder. I was ready to go off on her in the comment section, only to discover that she disabled comments again. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2015/04/welcome-to-holy-thursday.html
  4. ...And she's receiving SCORN again. Anyone want to bet on how long it is before Jesus tells her it's time to close comments again? I'm guessing three days at most. She actually had a pretty thoughtful post about the Pope's comments on being responsible with family planning up, but of course she deleted it after a bunch of commenters came in, stroked her ego, and told her the Pope's words were just taken out of context and really he'd applaud her for getting pregnant again and again knowing each would end in a high risk C-section. Now in her latest post she describes how she was shocked and shaken to her core after meeting a woman who was happy that she'd had her tubes tied after having two children. Her heart was TORN. Meanwhile this poor woman is blissfully ignorant of the emotional trauma she inflicted on St. Abigail the Martyr. What a life... abigails-alcove.blogspot.ca/
  5. I will be the first to say that Abigail is a bucket full of :cray-cray: :wtf: but I find one of her recent posts rather refreshing in light of what other fundies (Lori*Cough*Lori) would have done: Abigail: Look at that! She recognized her daughter as a person, totally independent from her, and she didn't flip the hell out when the little one got creative with the kiddie scissors. Can you imagine how Lori or Generation Starvation mom would have reacted??? abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/11/counting-my-blessings.html The whole post is full of fun memories she made with her kids on Thanksgiving. Abigail may get a lot of things wrong, but I really appreciate that she seems to have a respect for her children as individuals.
  6. They didn't name him Matthew (one of my favorite names btw) like they were planning. They went with John instead (I think that's her husband's name). He came early, but weighs 8+ lbs. Cute as can be. Good luck little guy...mom's a real nutter :?
  7. Abigail has been warned that her current pregnancy could have problems with the placenta, so she had been on modified bed rest and enduring a lot of other restrictions. She just went to see a high-risk OBGYN, who told her that the placenta was fine, but also that she should get a tubal ligation after her C-section. Abigail explains that this isn't an option because she is Catholic. The doctor says that he is Catholic too, and suggest that she get sterilized without telling anyone. So, how much of this exchange do you think actually happened? abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-struggle-to-be-both-faithful-and.html
  8. Abigail is such a pro-life martyr guys. Her latest is a whole post about how she's such a martyr for the pro life cause because she's had miscarriages, high risk pregnancies and a kid in the NICU and apparently no one could ever know her struggles! Only prolife know what it's like (because no pro choice person has ever had a difficult pregnancy or sick kid. ANd no pro life type might consider things like genetic counseling or birth control) Also when you're Abby t's soooo hard to be judged! No one gives her enough sympathy about her difficult pregnancy because it's pregnancy number 6. . It's all about feeding the ego. She even opened up her comment section so she could have more ego stroking. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-harder-parts-of-being-pro-life.html
  9. I am a long time lurker and only occasional poster, but I just had to talk about this with someone. This blog entry is from a fundie Catholic. She is an online friend of Abigail and they had medically fragile babies around similar times. Here is the entry I want to discuss: aknottedlife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-story-of-lazarus-for-james-3rd.html The original story is here: learningtobeanewlywed.blogspot.com/2011/03/today-james-is-6-months-old.html So here is my problem with her: What about the medical professionals that worked tirelessly on her baby for 61 minutes??? Why does Bishop Sheen get credit for this baby's recovery? This woman made a (in hind sight) horrible choice to have a home birth 40 minutes away from a decent hospital. Yes, most homebirths are safe, but hers was the poster birth for what could go wrong. She made a bad decision, a horrible thing happened to her baby, medical professionals saved him, and a would be saint gets credit? I am very happy her son is doing well (although he definitely has some residual side effects of anoxia), but give credit where credit is due. Second, WTH is that Lazarus redux about. Bible fan fiction? Sigh. If you keep reading you will see she has squeezed out 2 more kids during the 3 years since her son's birth. She admits she cannot handle NFP, claims not to want anymore kids, but is too pious to resort to condoms. She has 5 kids in 7 years. Her blog is full of woe is me, but most of it is her own doing. :angry-banghead:
  10. Abigail and her family are moving back to Maryland. Abigail is excited to return to the "Land of Mary," and feels that her time in West Virginia was like being a missionary. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/05/a-happy-spring.html
  11. Abigail reviews a book on how to become friendly with saints and angels. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/05/book-review-and-give-away-scott-hahns.html She especially loves the chapter that is apparently about how to become friendly with Moses. She says she already hosts a "Christian seder" every year and wants to recite Miriam's Song of the Sea at Easter. I knew about her doing a seder, but what the hell is the connection between Miriam and Easter? The idea of worshiping Moses or seeing him as a figure of intercession approaches offensive territory for me. In Jewish tradition, we don't know the location of his gravesite so that he could never be worshiped. And now Abigail is going to make him her best supernatural buddy.
  12. According to Abigail: 1. She has had secondary infertility. 2. Getting married and having a child at 28 is "late." 3. The existence of birth control anywhere in the world means that anybody who wants to have a child is weird. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-invisibility-of-secondary.html
  13. Content Warning : Miscarriage Abigail is pregnant again. She makes this announcement in the middle of a super long blog post about how cleaning makes her crazy. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/03/healing-my-inner-crazy.html
  14. Abigail writes an open letter to newly-single Gwyneth Paltrow. In summary: poverty makes marriage better and Abigail had a crappy childhood. Also, she adds "community theatre actress" to her growing resume. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/03/my-open-letter-to-gwyneth-paltrow-my.html
  15. Apparently, Abigail and the family went ice-skating. Is it me, or is that not really something that a woman who is going through a high-risk pregnancy because she's already had a miscarriage scare should be doing?
  16. Abigail watches a video from NYTimes.com about families in poverty. She refuses to believe that having too many kids can cause poverty, even when the mother and children in the video say "My mother has too many kids." abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/01/poverty-equals-too-many-kids.html
  17. She finally got a new refrigerator, normal size one, for her birthday. Plus they painted the inside of their house. It looks cute. Still complaining about being poor.
  18. Abigail writes a post about education that would probably make my retired teacher father weep. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2014/01/a-new-love-for-elementary-education.html How does she know she's a "secondary school teacher" when she has no children that age and doesn't have a background in education? And I think it's sad that her didn't know how to read in 2nd grade--that was the age when I was hiding a flashlight under my pillow so that I could read American Girl books in bed after my parents tucked me in.
  19. Her brother paid for them to go on vacation in NYC, along with her parents. Her sister is working for the State Department in Kabul, Afghanistan and she got bombed but is okay. ' Lots of photos, looks like they had a good time and it was good to see the kids having fun with their grandparents. Abigail looks relaxed. They ate out a few times, had a nice hotel room, and went to FAO Schwartz. Oh, and she likes the new Pope and so does her liberal family. No surprise there... It was actually nice to see her happy.
  20. According to Abigail, poverty is totes awesome. abigails-alcove.blogspot.ca/2012/12/poverty-is-really-really-great.html (Emphasis in original) The poor dear, being persecuted by fellow parishioners who expect children to be somewhat well-groomed and well behaved during a religious service. All of the reasons she lists for being glad to be in poverty can be easily done when NOT in poverty--with the added bonus of knowing that the heat will stay on and the kids will have dinner. My grandparents' generation grew up the poor children of immigrants. They had fond memories of simple pleasures and how close they were with their families during this time. They also spent every waking moment working to get out of poverty. My great-aunt began working part time jobs at 12, and graduated high school at 16 to work full time. The women worked until they had children. The men worked in factories until they found more lucrative and safe business opportunities. My grandfathers worked their way through college, one of them taking about 10 years to earn a bachelors degree because he had to take time off after every semester to work and earn enough money for the next semester's worth of classes. As a result of their work, they were able to end the cycle of poverty and ensure that their children and grandchildren would have a higher quality of life--living in safe neighborhoods, being well nourished, and going to college to pave the way to better jobs. Abigail, get it through your thick skull. Finding a way out of poverty isn't about "keeping up with the Joneses." It's about giving your children and grandchildren the tools they need to struggle less to get by in life.
  21. Abigail's household is going on four months without a water heater. Rumor has it that they will be getting a new one soon. abigails-alcove.blogspot.ca/2013/09/theres-rumor.html If the new water heater ended up not happening, would they still have been content to "wait for G-d to fix the problem" if they had gone into the winter months without hot water? I'm wondering if this is going to be a repeat of the episode where they tried to heat their house in a different way (for poverty reasons?) that turned out to be more expensive and faulty.
  22. abigails-alcove.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-power-of-saying-no.html Tell us again how poor you are Abigail.
  23. Abigail is attending meetings of Co-Dependents Anonymous because she feels guilty that she is married and Christian while her friends and family are not. abigails-alcove.blogspot.ca/2013/08/surviving-survivor-guilt.html Abigail could certainly use some help with her mental health, but to me it seems like a self-help group would just allow her to feed off of other people's attention and have a new audience for her martyrdom.
  24. Content Warning: Miscarriage, infertility and child death abigails-alcove.blogspot.ca/ Background: she's a Catholic fundie(ish?) blogger. She used to be an evil post-modern feminist who went to law school. She and her husband got married in the Catholic church and then I guess they kind of went off the deep end: no birth control, abortion is murder, I'm-better-than-you-because-I'm-Catholic sort of stuff. Aside from that, she has the biggest persecution complex I've ever seen. She has had some struggles - she lost a baby in a late miscarriage, one of her daughters had some serious complications, she's had something like five C-Sections - but she thinks all this makes her a martyr and specially chosen by God for suffering. I'm telling you, if someone sneezes near this lady she interprets it as spiritual warfare against her. In one of her latest posts, she talks about how jealous she is of her cousin, who recently received a lot of help from family members after the birth of her child. Not to worry, though. Abigail and her husband come to the cheerful conclusion that the reason she has to suffer SO MUCH MORE than other people is because God made her a special snowflake and he loves her MORE than everyone else.
