Ma and Pa Arndt's 34th anniversary


already hungover

Recommended Posts

So I am a loyal reader of FamTeam Today, and it is my pleasure to inform you all that today is the glorious day on which Mom and Dad Arndt were married. Thus began one of the weirdest families in all of fundydom. According to one of their overgrown manchildren, they're "an inspiration." An inspiration to...what, exactly? As far as I can tell it's the first and last wedding anyone in their family will ever experience aside from the ones they photograph.

 

I wonder if they get cake in bed with all the "boys" and their penguins. :dance:

Perhaps more interestingly, it appears that last Wednesday they had a fresh pineapple in their possession. These people are beyond weird...

Thank you, Already Hungover, for loyally reading FamTeam Today, a blog so weird that many of us cannot bear it. You are doing a great service to the FJ community.

It is a great comfort to know that if one day, ANY of these young men has ANYTHING noteworthy happen in their lives, you will let us know. Until then, you selflessly sacrifice your time reading about their sad, sad lives.

For your commitment, here's a penguin :wink-penguin:

And things havent changed at all since their 24th anniversary, or their 14th...other than that the children have grown physically.

Has this family ever talked about dating or courtship? We know which one most fundies prefer. These guys don't even need chaperon to leave the house. There's got to be some chick out there that's caught their eye.

God, I love the Ardt's weirdness. I saw this thread and got a smile on my sour little face thinking about the cake on the bed. They really are my fundie crack, but I just can't read the blog anymore,and depend on FJ for updates. Bless you already hungover. You get double jazz hands from me :cracking-up: :cracking-up: :text-thankyouyellow:

That would require them to hit puberty and get past the "girls are yucky! let's go play a game" phase, which none of those boys seem to have done.

I bet that at least one of the older boys has visited a hooker or at least a strip club or happy endings massage place while away photographing a wedding. Most humans aren't made to be celibate into their thirties.

All snark aside, they are SO isolated on a day to day basis. I wonder sometimes about the frequency of incestual relationships or molestation in families like this one.

This is something we've skirted around/hinted out, but no evidence.

I wonder if they even know those places exist. For all they know, a happy ending is how Disney movies end.

Anyone know how Ma and Pa met? Were they fundies or did they live normal lives until they married and decided to spawn creepy children?

I also don't understand how any of the children could be court reporters. Most states make you attend a real court reporting school to get certified, so did the Ardnt boys, can't call them men, attend a real program with real heathen students? Also, I don't even understand how such sheltered people could be allowed to be court reporters. Anyone who has ever sat in court or attended a deposition knows that there can be language used or situtations explained that would not be deemed fundy appropriate. A court reporter cannot ask that only nice language be used. I just don't get it.

This is something I wondered as well. Having served jury duty on a number of criminal cases, including a murder trial, I know that all kinds of inappropriate and graphic stuff comes out in court. This just seems weird that a bunch of sheltered guys are in this profession. And in that case, they would probably know that strip clubs / hookers / massage places exist, along with a lot of other non-fundie approved stuff. I can't imagine given their work that they can't know. So seeing their very weird, sheltered life somehow just doesn't mesh somehow.

Their wedding photography page also shows they do modern weddings. Strapless dresses, dancing, and everything that the Maxwell photographer won't.

A few of the boys went to Six Flags this weekend with friends.

They are sheltered but they aren't. There is no figuring them out; its impossible.

This family baffles me. If I had multiple sons in their late 20s/30s, still living at home, none of them having ever had a relationship, and generally acting like 12-year-olds, I would be extremely concerned. Most fundies we talk about here are fairly transparent, in that their craziness stems from hardcore legalistic religion. But something is wrong beyond that when it comes to the Arndts.

That is just the weirdest website/blog ever. Very 'Children of the Corn.'

The Arndt's are the ultimate conundrum. I just wish their blog were more palatable so I could keep up with the crazy.

Were they Catholic when they met? The prayer meetings were held at a Visitation Academy. Every Visitation Academy I've known has been Catholic.

IIRC, their families were Catholic. And if it is the Viz in St. Louis, it is indeed a Catholic School.

Hey, they played wiffle ball in the yard last week. Is that sufficiently noteworthy?

Thanks for the penguin. I'll put him here, in this house of Lego I've built for such purposes.

Hello all, long time lurker. I just had to respond after reading this lol. In my crazy family I have 3 uncles who are just like this,they are 56, 47, and 43. The 56 and 47 year old still live with my grandmother, one does not work and has not worked since I was a little girl(I'm 25) and the other (56)just recently got a job a few months ago. The 56 year old has never had a girlfriend or a place of his own, he had a prostitute over a couple years (IN THE LIVING ROOM :ew: ) while my grandma was asleep in her room, but other than that only porn tapes. My 2nd uncle(47) no job ever, no prostitutes, only porn. My third uncle, he actually has a place of his own so we do not know if he watches porn or has had prostitutes. We all think it is very strange, but no one wants to confront them or ask them about it because they don't want to start drama or an argument. So it happens unfortunately, and my family isn't even fundie or fundie lite.

I dread to ask this, but how do you know this??

You are YAW-some for your willingness to read through the FamTeam blather. I find the site so confusing, and the Arndts so...disturbing, that I can't bear to visit their blogs.

I have baked you an imaginary penguin-shaped cake as a token of gratitude.

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
