    Fundie Signs

    Just saw this... What the hell? That's everything!
  2. "I saw a van with eleventy kids!" "There was a lady at the grocery store with a head covering!" "Some patriarchal asshole told me I defrauded him!" Part 1 is here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16844 Part 2 is here: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/20495-real-life-fundie-encountersâ„¢-part-2/?page=1 I saw a fundie family at the grocery store. They had about 10 kids. The girls all had long denim skirts. and shirts under their shirts, and were in charge of the littler kids. What made the family unusual was that the mom was breastfeeding the in
  3. Want More Babies

    Church of Wells Store/Catherine went back MERGED

    This past week Mr. Want More Babies and I were near Wells, TX and he humored me enough to let me stop at their store there in Wells. He sat in the car because he does not understand why anyone would want to see that kind of crazy up close. The store is run down and has a lot of empty space. It looks like they buy food from other stores (Big Lots and HEB) and then mark the price up and sell it there. The Big Lots price tag wasn't even removed from the marshmallows. There was a young man in the back reading his Bible. Never looked up the whole time I was there. Another young man was at

  6. I have been assigned the unenviable task of combing through the 400+ pages of Snark, finding and moving threads that are more suitable to Chatter, Worldly Distractions, or the Hobby area. Taking this high-altitude look at FJ, I have spotted a phenomenon that leads to a large number of really short threads, generally with just a handful of replies: the Real Life Fundie Encounter[tm][/tm]. In an effort to keep the number of threads more manageable, we're going to experiment with a catch-all thread. If you have a casual encounter with a fundie in real life and would like to talk about
  7. If I had old pictures from ATI "events," where would I post them? Is there an area for that sort of thing. Sorry I am new. I just found a box that had some old pictures from COMMIT and another ATI event (can't remember the name, it's been too long.) I thought they might be fun to share.
  8. GenerationCedarchip

    One of my friends has gone Quiverfull

    I just got friended by an old college friend and I have to say that the more I read his FB page, the more obvious it is he's gone QF. I have to admit it makes me sad. This guy was super-smart (finalist for a Rhodes Scholarship) and kind of moderate/mainstream Protestant when we were in school. However, I see from his page that he is now OPC (orthodox Preby.) and he got married in 2006 but already has 7 kids! No twins in that either. He's posted a series of family photos as each new kid is born and I've noticed that he is looking a little ragged around the edges but his poor wife lo
  9. For those on the recovering grace facebook a user posted about being caught leaving recovering grace cards at ATI and discussed it with John Duggar and another guy so now at least one Duggar knows there is a way out. The question though is if they will ever take the chance now that they know. So... Someone must have seen me drop a card somewhere this afternoon.. Why you ask? Well because they ratted me out and I got the chance to meet John Duggar and another guy and they proceeded to ask me about what and why I was doing leaving RG cards around the conference. At first I played a l
  10. I checked out two books from the library after hearing a long rant from a fundie about Titanic with zombies on board. Titanic is a big passion for me and I've enjoyed some monster mash ups. My favorite rant was about how a man of that era would even dare allow a woman to be bitten or scratched by a zombie! Captain Smith wasn't nearly as tough as he's portrayed in the books! The fundie knew this how...? The zombie curse was brought on because someone, somewhere, did something bad! I did want to ask if it was a woman who did something bad as these groups seem
  11. So I had to go to Arkansas today and I decided to drive by the Duggar compound: IMG_1432_opt.jpg[/attachment] They have to see it everyday because it's on the main road right next to the side street that leads to their house. Just beyond that is the actual Tonitown Fire Station which has a huge sign that says "Burn ban! No fireworks!" I couldn't take a pic because I was driving. Then I swung over to Smuggar's dealership: [attachment=0]IMG_1433_opt.jpg[/attachment] I took this at the stoplight. When I turned the corner, I actually saw

    Duggars filmed in my town

    With this post I am outing my town. No stalking, please. http://vimeo.com/40131739 And they were filming, because there was a cameraman in the background of one of the pictures in the newspaper.
  13. Okay so the Duggars are in WI where my great aunt lives. She watches the show and comments a lot on it. I told her that she should go with one of her daughters today to one of the churches. It would be over an hour away for her but she said she might go, but is still unsure. I think she doesn't want to have to be there 2 hours early. I told her it isn't like a rock star is coming and I am sure just going in 15-30 minutes will still get her in the church. (I could be soooo wrong on this) If she goes should she look for anything? If she can take pictures should she?
  14. 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.

    Bates/Duggars - Ever Seen In Public

    Has anyone ever seen The Bates Family or The Duggar Family out in public? What are they like in a public setting? Are they different when there are no cameras or fans around?

    Duggar Towing

    I called Duggar Towing for a friend. And got john david. She needed to get her car moved back home from nashville arkansas. She lives near springdale so i went ahead and did it. He said he could do it and it would cost about four hundred dollars. When i asked he was up front about it being expensive. Just thought you guys might like to hear about it lol.
  17. I recently got together with a cousin of mine whom I hadn't seen in years. He now lives in northwest Arkansas, and is a real estate lawyer for Walmart. (We're both native New Yorkers, born and raised Catholic, but no longer observant. Cue the snark about culture shock and the Bible Belt.) I asked him about women going around in denim jumpers, and he said it wasn't an uncommon sight. He said the Duggars were a big deal around there, and that, when he first moved there, NOTHING was open on Sundays, because EVERYONE was at church. Mr. Snark seems to have sipped a bit of the Kool-Aid,
  18. Apparently, Michelle is going to be speaking at a conference at my alma mater in a month, a conference on home and hearth type issues. I don't think it's the whole brood, but she's the keynote speaker for the conference. If I had money, I'd totally go undercover guys. I could find the right jumper at goodwill, I know it. In any case, I'll keep a watchful eye out that weekend for permed hair. (Also, hey! I took a little break from FJ, when I realized that I was trying to keep up so much that I wasn't getting anything else done. And that's not a good thing for me. Hopeful
  19. My husband and I are invited to the wedding of my MIL's friend's daughter. The daughter is becoming Orthodox, and the wedding will be Orthodox. (I assume Modern Orthodox, but I can't be sure.) While I've been to Orthodox weddings before, this is the first time I'm going to one since I've gotten married. I'm Jewish, but not Orthodox, so I don't cover my head. Do I need to wear a headcovering for the wedding? All the women who are invited to the wedding are also invited to a tichel party the night before, but I would feel awkward going since I don't wear tichels. My MIL is also curious about thi
  20. At the foot of my street there's a modest home, a rental. Some of the neighbors call it the "Bethel house." Parked outside are sometimes as many as half a dozen cars. Their license plates tell the story — Texas, British Columbia, South Dakota, Indiana ... On Sunday morning this week I was inspired to rise early and follow these young people to church to see what the fuss is all about, what drew them to Redding. Below are my impressions from the 8:30 service at Bethel Church. I arrived with 10 minutes to spare and found a traffic jam on College View Drive,
  21. Yesterday, I went downtown with my family. There's an indoor market there, and there was this Amish stand where they sold homemade jellies and preserves. So we stood around, browsing through their things. I was with my sister, who's 13. There was an Amish boy right near us, I'm guessing around my sister's age or older. He was stocking the shelves, but then he started to give my sister these weird looks. He was looking directly at her, and he did it for a while. She tried to ignore it, but he kept persisting. So my sister took a look at him again, and he licked his lips at her, for a lack of a

    Bethel Church

    It was crazy, but not in the way that we were expecting. The room that the service was in was very large. There were about 450 people there. The room was oriented so that the stage was on the long axis of the room which made for a more intimate space than it would have been had the room been oriented traditionally, with the stage at a narrow end of the room. The floor area had conference-style chairs, and we sat on some bleachers in the back. There were basketball hoops in the room that had been drawn up towards the roof. The back of the stage had two large screens wh
  23. Well I guess he would not make it to portland oregon but this guy sure did a good job imitating him. Most people hated him and he just loved to yell. The part I did not get a video of was when he made fun of a guys shirt how it made him look gay. the guy said I am gay and proud of it. and the preacher went off. but the guy said your really turning me on and I really want to kiss you and hug you. so he goes up the the fake preacher and that sure shuts him up. though he never givs the hug the talked in normal tones.
