pook posted a topic in General Questions & DiscussionFrom time to time this topic comes up in a number of forums, especially during periods of major fundie news like Joshgate, Tooloween, JRod everything etc. So how do you guys explain your fundie testimony to the people you know in real life? Do you feel ridiculous? I do because fundie culture is among other things so ludicrous yet I never feel ashamed, just a little silly. Mr. Pook thinks that I am a loon for my fundie fascination. In fact, when I bring up the Duggars he gets angry and leaves the room. He calls it my "hate following" because he is of a much more conservative mentality and is uninterested in understanding how the toxic beliefs these fundies espouse have permeated mainstream society/politics and are truly harming people. He does understand internet forum culture because he belongs to some and understands how much of a supportive community they can be. What has been your experience? Sis Pook P.S. The oldest Pook thinks the stuff I show him is pretty hilarious, notably Doug Phillips various aliases such as Phil Douglas and (proud Mama moment) he found Ken Ham and Raymond Comfort on his own and we laugh about bananas and the flooding of the Arc Encounter park.
