Obviously, a bit off topic, but has RC Sproul Jr. always looked like Mario Batali?

HA! Oh my word, that's who he subconsciously reminded me of.

Speaking of douchey calvinists, Doug Wilson needs to jump in a lake

The "D" in Doug's name takes up about three lines on the guestbook page. Not that I put that much store in handwriting analysis, but... http://bodyodd.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/0 ... study-says

It also seems to say 'Love and Mazel Tov [and another word I can't make out]' under 'Thoughts'. Maybe his next re-incarnation will be with Messianic Judaism.

Being a fellow pastor, I'm sure RC Jr. is familiar with this verse:

1 Corinthians 5:9-13 ESV

I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.â€

Only 4 options here...

1) RC doesn't regard Dougie as a fellow believer

2) RC thinks Dougie is clean and being unjustly persecuted

3) RC thinks Dougie has repented fully and is to be restored (Hello CREC!)

4) RC needs to grow a set.

Doug always draws on his "Jewish roots" when he feels like it. His energetically obnoxious videos from Israel are something to see. Here's the first:

I bailed after a minute. So embarrassing I wanted to hide my face just watching. Doug Phillips Is A TOOL!

I think that Joshua and Darby must be good friends and that is why the entire family was invited. JT didn't make his twitter account private until we spoke about its connection to Darby's account.

Even though I dislike the family's theology, I hope that the couple have a happy marriage.

Welp, that settles that.

The entire Phillips family appears to have attended Darby's wedding: johnacobb.smugmug.com/Darby-Christopher-Wedding/i-XL26jJs

ETA: And Doug Phillips Is A Tool also signed the guestbook:johnacobb.smugmug.com/Darby-Christopher-Wedding/i-T6Jp9Xx

In the ETA linked picture, it looks as if Bradrick and Kelly are standing very near Doug. Might this mean that they've reconciled?

ETA: I'm sorry, I meant the picture in the first link, not the guestbook one.

I don't think that's Peter, and that is definitely not Kelly. If I'm looking at the photo you are referring to, which is johnacobb.smugmug.com/Darby-Christopher-Wedding/i-XL26jJs

Oh my. I felt embarrassed for him even though I know he is a horrible excuse for a human. What was with the weird voice? Is that supposed to make him sound like he is from their because it sure didn't.

Yikes--that was painful to watch and listen to. Cultural appropriation at its worst. Someone should remind DPIAT that, in Jewish tradition, Jewishness is matrilineal, not patrilineal.

*way way way way Off Topic*

The "Christian Post" is an interesting story in and of itself. It, the International Business Times and now, Newsweek, are being run by a shadowy outfit led by a former follower of Rev. Moon. I only mention the latter because it appears David Jang has taught some similar beliefs to his followers, like that he's the "Second Coming Christ".

If you read this article you might see why the Christian Post kept Hero's name in the article--for the clickbait.

Thanks for posting that article. Interesting and frightening.

LOL thanks for the laugh.

I can't believe the man who landed in Tel Aviv and wanted to sing from Fiddler on the Roof had an 'non-biblical-sexual' extramarital affair with a woman.

Looks like Doug Phillips Is A Tool will have always have a friend in R.C. Sproul, Jr.: johnacobb.smugmug.com/Darby-Christopher-Wedding/i-HKfM9mD

The beginnings of Doug's rehabilitation? It's worth watching for other social gatherings.

To be totally shallow, Mario Balali R.C. Sproul Jr. really needs to retire the kilt. I usually swoon over men in kilts, but there obviously comes a time when they are just not flattering on fuller figured men . . .

Perhaps he could donate it to Doug's costume box? Or even better send it to the PP!

OMFG that guy is SUCH a nerd. He's like...the LARPer at your local community college who walks around in a trench coat with his fencing gear and randomly breaks out into weird play acting. That was just a million kinds of awkward.

ETA: Look! That's the FLAG! That's the Star of David! (OMG DID HE JUST SAY FABULOSO?!!!!) WOW! Also, Stephen Kendricks' wife looks a LOT younger than him?

I'm pretty sure the guest book says "Mazel Tov in Christ"--which I guess is sort of like Yahsome, but more importantly, it's a wonderful way to turn what's supposed to be a good luck message to the happy couple into a fabulouso statement about Doug Phillips and how super special he is (Jewish roots! Totally Christian! So cool!)

Also, in the photo, the "Kelly" woman is Beall and I think "Peter" is actually the rarely seek Justice.

(ETA: Doug snark aside, what a beautiful wedding. The location is lovely and the bride, the dress, the photos of her mom (I assume) in the church, very nicely done.)

I'm pretty sure Darby's mother died a few years ago of cancer. Darby was still in her teens when her mother died and, as the oldest daughter, had all those little kids to look after . I don't know who the woman in the photos is.

Sorry, I was clear in my head but I can see where what I wrote wasn't clear at all. What I meant was in the pictures of the actual ceremony, there are 2 framed photographs in the front pew of a woman who I assume is Darby's late mother, which I thought was a nice way to reflect how her memory is important to her daughter on her daughter's special day.

Oh wow, I wouldn't have guessed that. Thanks for the identification.

Maybe deep down I was hoping for another crazy twist in this already twisty story.

I think that's his "I'm pretending that I'm playing Tevye" voice.

Oh, I see. Sorry! I didn't scroll through all eleventy wedding pictures but I agree that is a very sweet idea to have the photos of her mother there. Who is the (older than the bridesmaids) woman in a navy blue dress who is seen organizing the wedding party at various times? Anyone?

The flower girls and the little boys are just adorable.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
