First Roberts Courtship

Recommended Posts

Willie Roberts updated his facebook recently, he's in a relationship with Stephanie Haaren.

Not surprised its a pretty blonde, however she's apparently done Australian missionary work. And appears to be German? Or lived in Germany. Fundie light based on the 4 kid family and pictures of siblings in halter tops and shorts.

The Roberts family may have fundie acquaintances, but they're much less fundie. The girls wear pants and they all seem to be rather "worldly." The boys don't seem like the kind that would go for frumpers and a dozen kids. This doesn't surprise me much at all.

I also found Willie's facebook page one day, and it seems like his family (or maybe just Willie) are not hardcore fundy. Willie works in a coffeeshop with regular young people and frequently makes references to hipsters, indicating that he is familiar with "worldly" things. I wonder how traditional this courtship is, especially if the girl isn't ATI/VF. And is there any tension with their much more fundy friends, the Mortons?

I think the Robertses used to be a lot more fundie. If you scroll through the Morton blog, there's lots of pictures of them in typically modest dresses. I think some of them were bridesmaids in Dorothy's weddings? (the one with the green bridesmaids dresses). In the old photos Norma's hair is naturally brown.

I get the impression they became more mainstream in the past few years, and have moved from VF to ATI. Apparently the oldest daughter is in a relationship too (but this hasn't been confirmed).

Dorothy's bridesmaids dresses were blue and I've never seen Norma with brown hair. Marty and Campbell have brown hair. I'm not surprised that they've become more fundie lite, I don't think they were ever hardcore fundies.

How is it more "mainstream" to move from VF to ATI?

There's more to "fundie" and "fundie lite" than clothing preferences. Just because someone does missionary work and is a Christian, doesn't mean they are fundie lite.

There are a few more older photos like that, with the Roberts girls wearing the denim skirts and collared blouses.

And you're right, the dresses were blue, I somehow changed the colour in my head :shifty:

If you look through the Dorothy/Noah wedding pics Marty and Campbell were bridesmaids: deepsouth.me/main/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/S-M-teaser2-1479.jpg

Doubt any of the Roberts girls would wear those dresses nowadays.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      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,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
