47of74 posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkAnother cemetery has been desecrated. nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Jewish-Headstones-Cemetery-Vandalism-Wissinoming--414818793.html I don't want to hear a word from 45 or any other Republican about how terrible and awful this is. They were the ones that stirred the pot of religious and ethnic intolerance and now we see the end result of their words and deeds.

OIIII This story keeps showing up for me everywhere I look so I thought I should share it. Jewish extremists fled Quebec just before they were to go court on allegations of child abuse. cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2013/11/22/21288371.html
So I just finished the 3 book series: Delusion, Deception, Deliverance: Growing up in an Amish Jewish Cult by Patricia Hochstetler. Has anybody else read these? Very interesting story and it has so much of what FJ talks about: Faux Jews, cult leaders, plain people, and a whole hell of a lot of cognitive dissonance. Patricia's parents are an Old Order Amish mother and a former-Pentecostal father who join this faux jewish-amish cult commune in the 1940s. When she finally leaves in the 1960s, she has never seen a radio or tv, never heard music, it's crazy. They are so isolated, first on this mountain commune and then as sharecroppers picking cotton. She only goes into town once ever as a teenager and is surprised at all the food at the market. Very quick read for anyone interested. My one beef is that it should have been a single book. I bought them used on Amazon.
I generally find this blog interesting but she regularly annoys me as well. Like this? "3. Phrases like "I need some me-time"; "It's the principle of the matter"; and "I just need to vent/rant" are usually rationalizations for selfish behavior camouflaged as mental health directives." really, having any time to yourself is selfish? I am an introvert and I am raising two toddlers and yes, I NEED regular me-time. I don't think that's selfish but I guess that's why I'll never be orthodox. I know it's minor. Just rubbed me wrong.
