  1. Apologies if someone's already posted this, but I feel like this deserves its own thread. Since Steve Bannon wants the media to not say mean things about the regime, and wants to run the country into the ground I think it's appropriate that everyone knows he's also a shitty person in his private life. I've found, for your perusal and disgust, some links that have, redacted, court papers about his divorce procedings as well as child support proceedings from his second ex-wife, Mary Louise Piccard. They're a hard read, but here are some highlights: - Underpaid or outright didn't pay his child/spousal support. When he was making $500,000 a year, and had a lot more money than that, so he really had no excuse. -Went for long periods of time without contact with his daughters -Acted abusively towards daughters when he did see them. -Threatened administrators of schools where daughters would be enrolled. Flipped out over the possibility of his daughters attending school where Jewish children attended. -This is less confirmable, but apparently he told Piccard he would not marry her if amniocentesis did not come back normal https://theopporeport.com/2016/12/02/the-bannon-files-divorce-records-reveal-marital-discord-and-questionable-parenting/ In addition, here's a link to a police report about Bannon choking Piccard. She dropped charges because he threatened her, from what I understand. http://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000156-c3f8-dd14-abfe-fbfbbe310001 I'm not necessarily the quickest to believe everything, but to be honest it looks like Piccard has her story straight and it's not like Bannon has denied it. If we see fit, maybe we could put these in a sticky, a la the Josh Duggar police reports? I think it's important for these docs to be out there, especially with everything going on.
  2. Hi everyone. I've been a longtime member (mostly lurker) but I'm guessing my old account got deleted with one of the big changes so I have started a new one. I'm posting here because I am so curious why (seemingly) no one is talking about the connection with Trim Healthy Mama, Above Rubies, and Serene Allison's failed international adoptions and child abuse. I was considering ordering the book but stumbled upon all of the icky info about Serene's adoptions (http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/04/christian-evangelical-adoption-liberia?page=1). Am I just confused or are these the same people? How did an abusive family like this rise to being so popular as authors without their past coming to light?
  3. I'm not familiar with Abedini's ministry per se, just knew about his imprisonment in Iran. Would appreciate more info from those who may know about or of him. So, not posting this for snarking but rather to say, once again, here is a fundamentalist Christian male -- himself persecuted for his religious beliefs -- victimizing his wife. From Christianity Today (http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2015/november-web-only/pastor-saeed-abedini-wife-naghmeh-halts-public-advocacy.html?start=1): If that weren't all enough for one person to bear, then there's this, reported last month (http://www.christianpost.com/news/naghmeh-abedini-under-attack-christians-muslims-147974/):
  4. An enquiry commissioned by the German Bishops and comducted by Universities of Giessen, Heidelberg and Mannheim finds more than 3600 minors were abused by clergy since 1947. And more than half of them were younger than 13yo when abused. Enquiry also says that real numbers are probably much higher. http://time.com/5394761/germany-catholic-church-sex-abuse-cases/
  5. Anyone else read the article recently released by Buzzfeed News? https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/christinekenneally/orphanage-death-catholic-abuse-nuns-st-josephs?bftwnews&utm_term=4ldqpgc#4ldqpgc It's brutal. In the focus on sexual abuse by priests, a lot of the other types of abuse perpetrated and covered up by the Church are being swept aside.
  6. Hi all, I wanted to reach out because I recently published a book called Angels Can't Swim that focuses on abuse, sexuality, and mental health in college swimmers. If you are interested please check it out! Thanks and have a great day. https://alexandramccann02.wixsite.com/mysite

    Acquiring a pet fundy

    One of the first things I noticed while lurking on Free Jinger, beyond the overwhelming number of fundamentalist families beyond the Duggars I'd no idea existed, was the board culture. I spent some time in the SOTDRT learning definitions and what board culture means. One of the phrases used confused me though: pet fundy/fundie. What the heck does that mean?? Is it the fundy fam you love to hate, the fundy you secretly love but hate (in that hate the sin not the sinner sort of way), the fundy you hate the most? I have decided it's one of those phrases that means what it means to the individual, though the definition I have seen most is the fundy family you follow most. I have looked for my pet fundies. I've scoured the archives, reading about families when I was interested in them on a current thread so decided to further educate myself about their antics. I've educated myself on Zsu zsu Anderson and her Pissing Preacher. Ugh, child-abusing bitch, I can't follow them for wanting to go there and snatch her bald-headed. Lauren and her travelling circus of irresponsible parenting? Grrr, the neglect those kids are put through! Erika Shupe and the jelly bean reward system? POW! To the moon with her! The Nauglers? No, the proximity makes the idea of driving up and 1. rescuing those poor kids 2. cut a bitch (a phrase I'd never felt any connection to until I read about Joe and Nicole) just a bit too do-able for my comfort. The Maxwells? Where to even start?! The Duggar/Bates? Nope, nope no. The cover up of child sexual abuse is more than I can stand. I'd just about decided on Jilly Rod until I saw what she's done to her poor sister Amy in the past year. The blatant Jill of it all is just more than I can bear. I don't know if I just have such a low tolerance for child abuse and neglect, patriarchy and the objectification of women, victim blaming, non-education of minds begging for knowledge, the enormous egos involved and the rampant sexuality in the purity culture that I can't pick out my pet fundy(s). I don't know how the rest of you did it, deciding which family you would expose the ugly underbelly of their hypocrisy to the cold light of day. Right now, I'm spending more time hate-reading about LoriKen, the never learning egomaniacs. Having some brain damage that sometimes affects my mood and behavior is probably the link that clicked for me with Lori and her brain tumor issues. Also, while she is still giving out heartbreakingly terrible advice to women on her blog, at least she is unable to directly abuse children as hers are grown and gone. That's a big issue for me, so there's that. For me, my pet fundy is defined by my ability to be dragged into their life suck. I don't love to hate them, I don't know that I really hate hate them either, though I utter, "What a fucking bitch!" at least once when I read a new installment on her blog. I'm not much surer of what a pet fundy is now than I was on the first day at FJ, but I know who my pet fundy is, at long last.
