    New podcast from former Quiverfull daughters

    Hannah Ettinger and Kieryn Darkwater now have a weekly podcast discussing aspects of their quiverfull upbringing. I've only listened to two episodes so far but it's pretty good and I'm interested to see what kind of topics and guests they have in the future. https://kitchentablecult.com/
  2. Some people doing some good work in this world

    Pennington Birth Certificate!

    To celebrate FJ's awesome upgrade and snazzy new look (AND cool new emoticons!), I want to point out one piece of good news posted to FJ Shelter during our down time - please forgive the repetition! Per her "Help Me Prove It" Facebook page, Alecia Faith Pennington is now the proud owner of a physical copy of her birth certificate, only 19 (?) years after James and Lisa Pennington should have taken care of that basic little parenting chore. Congratulations, Alecia Faith!
  4. I thought you folks might be interested in this interview with Megan Phelps, formerly of Westboro Baptist Church. It was on the radio as I was driving home from work today. I was pleased to hear this on a mainstream news programme here in the UK. http://bbc.in/1Tq38yZ
  5. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/11/23/conversion-via-twitter-westboro-baptist-church-megan-phelps-roper All about Twitter...and her eventually leaving the church. Maybe social media can save other fundies too.
  6. This is a new article about people fleeing the FLDS. I hope they are right that DOJ case will be a further blow to the "religion". The DOJ seems to be doing it right in the fact that they aren't targeting the religion but the illegal run of the cities, etc. Trying to take them down like Capone. Also Elissa Wall is helping with the underground escape of some of the people. I hope more and more get connected with the internet and google Warren Jeffs and read the truth. Part 1: america.aljazeera.com/multimedia/2015/3/fleeing-the-flds-sect.html Part 2: (I haven't read all of part 2 yet) america.aljazeera.com/multimedia/2015/3/deprogramming-from-the-flds-warren-jeffs-cult.html * mods - please move if not in the right area
  7. Did anyone else watch this? It's about two of Warren's kids who left the FLDS. They both say they were victims of child sexual abuse by Warren.
  8. I realize that this is pretty lengthy and time-consuming, but I decided to post it anyway, because it is really interesting and worth watching. I am not a fan of the show, but Benji Schwimmer apparently was the winner of one of the early seasons of SYTYCD. He is an openly gay dancer/choreographer, and in the following videos, he shares his perspective as a gay man who grew up in the LDS church. We talk a lot about how fundies might be treated if they came out as lgbt, or how their family and church would react...he answers pretty much all of the questions that come with the territory of ultra-religious communities and homosexuality. Anyways, the total viewtime is around 5 1/2 hours, but again, it's kind of a unique interview. If you don't want to watch all of it, I recommend skipping through to part 3.
  9. Charlene Jeffs, actual legal wife (of many sister wives) of Lyle Jeffs, warrens brother who now leads the sect, is divorcing him and fighting for custody of the minor kids. I think there are two minors left out of a large brood. Should be fascinating!
  10. Not breaking because it's LA Times. http://www.latimes.com/news/columnone/l ... .htmlstory

    Independent Baptists

    Are there any former independent Baptists on here? Would love to swap some stories!
  12. Welcome to the real world, Zach Phelps-Roper! Mazal tov on your new freedom. http://cjonline.com/news/2014-05-05/fou ... ist-church

    Quiverfull article on Cracked

    http://www.cracked.com/article_21061_5- ... dhood.html The author, Hannah Ettinger, talks about the insanity of growing up Quiverfull. Not much new information, but it's good to see the subject being discussed somewhere as mainstream as Cracked.
  14. http://fox13now.com/2014/03/27/warren-j ... dy-battle/ The father, who was exiled from the FLDS, was granted custody after Warren Jeffs testified (sort of - he mostly took the 5th but said he wasn't a prophet.) Kids going to a public school!
  15. I know some of you enjoy learning about the FLDS. I don't have much information (sorry). I was watching a commercial and it was previewed. They are interviewing a former FLDS woman. One I have never seen before. Anyway I am sure there will be more info throughout the week.
  16. There are currently over four hundred responses. The thread will stay open until tomorrow. http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1 ... ren_jeffs/
  17. medium.com/turning-points/83d2ef8ba4f5 medium.com/reporters-notebook/d63ecca43e35 Megan & Grace Phelps-Roper leave the Westboro Baptist Church.
  18. This coming Sunday, Bio Channel is premiering a new documentary series called Escaping Evil:My Life In A Cult. Well known FLDS escapee and activist Flora Jessop will be the focus of the first episode. ETA: The air time is 10 pm eastern and here is a link to a video clip http://www.biography.com/tv/escaping-ev ... 9542083630
  19. families in this Huffington post video, along with a gay teenager who left his Amish community. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/0 ... 41509.html I think this is wonderful, and I didn't know about the long-term rehabilitation centre for individuals leaving controlling and abusive families, cults, religions, etc. It's good to know that there is a safe place for someone like (Sarah Maxwell, et al.) to go if she ever escapes.
  20. Yet another tragic outcome of never being allowed to explore anything but the most rigid gender and sex roles: http://jezebel.com/5905780/what-happens ... es-a-woman
  21. http://johndcornish.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/ati-ifb-childhood/ This was perhaps the most telling/poignant part:
  22. She was raised in a quiverfull family: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/r ... _home_ask/
  23. I don't think some of those verses relate to the attitudes at all. It was like he just threw in some randomn verses. These were mailed home to the parents (even on the adults women who were attending EXCEL). I didn't improve a great deal. I don't think I ever got a five on anything. Can't really rember, but I am pretty sure this involved vowing to never date and to give our father our heart. Pictures coming next post.
  24. I was sad to read this today. A neighbor came over to ask if my nieces and nephews were okay. 8 of our neices and nephews were up at the cabin(with their parents) that is right off of the road the accident happened on since it is spring break right now. If alcohol related I really wish they would do more to stop the underage drinking up in that area. It seems like alot of the kids that leave the FLDS faith think you are either super religious or a partier, no in between. There is only one place to buy beer, the chevron near Cane beds and there is always a few 21-22 alcoholics outside willing to buy for minors in exchange for apack of smokes or a few beers. http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7655 ...
