Pecan and Pris are having a....

Recommended Posts

Adam and Valerie's daughter is Abigail so I doubt they'll use it. And I think PecanThief has sisters named Rachel (or some variation) and Lydia so I don't see them using those either.

I'm going to put a buck on her middle name being Grace. It's pretty much a filler middle name for the conservative Christian set since it manages to be both the pinnacle of epistemologically correct names without being too exotic or weird. I think the names of most (approved) female Bible characters have pretty much been used up by immediate family. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are Sarah, Ruth, and maybe Miriam (she's a bit borderline). All the others are either not good roll models -Jael, Rahab, Tamar, Eve- or outright bad-Delilah, Jezebel, Salome. And then there's Mary but lots of fundies tend to run a million miles from anything that might be considered Catholic,

Otherwise, they could use a virtue name or something that otherwise fits their agenda-like Evangeline or Christina.

I think it's quite a popular mainstream middle name at the moment, too. I know of at least two couples who aren't conservative Christians (or if they are, they hide it well :P) who had daughters in the past couple of years and gave them the middle name Grace.

Wow. So painful to watch. I couldn't get through the whole thing, the way she holds her hands, straining to get the words right. Ugh. You know she's stressing and I'm sure his "encouragement" only goes so far.

And Prism sweetie, it's sex, not gender. You'll be announcing the sex of your baby. It's not a sin to say it. I'd say the gender is yet to be determined, but we all know where that will go.....

i gotta say, i feel really sorry for pris. i can't watch any videos with her because my heart sinks every time i tried. i can almost sometimes see a brief glimpse of the real pris, the pris who hasn't been brainwashed and forced into submission. if she hadn't walked the fundie path, she would be such a bright and vibrant lady. the way fundamental religion beats you down becomes really evident with some people, and i think pris is one of them.

Agree!!

so, to keep the brand going, they are selling the gender reveal. OK

And comparing labor to christ on the cross was interesting.

I looked for the video of Jane Curtin doing the Angora Bouquet ad on SNL, but all I found was the transcript. I get the feeling of this ad when I see Priss. http://snltranscripts.jt.org/77/77cangora.phtml

Considering the bible explicitly says labor is supposed to be super painful because Eve ate a planted apple and therefore billions and billions of women from then on need to be punished, whereas crucifixion was supposed to be super painful to stop billions and billions of people going to hell... Religion is so stupid.

This is what fundies want to raise their daughters to be? This poor woman was intentionally turned into a mindless dolt. Slow is a nice way to say it . No mind of her own so every word is a struggle. I just find it unfathomable that this existence is one people choose, for themselves but worse, for their offspring. I'm sure Priscilla's parents are chest thumping proud of their robotic daughter and that makes me ill.

That first bit is one of the parts of the Bible most often taken out of context. Everyone seems to forget that God told Adam that the ground was cursed because of him and that men would basically break their backs farming and toiling for the rest of their days - it wasn't like he specifically cursed women but said to men 'lol you're good' (similar to how in the New Testament everyone seems to quote the bit about women obeying their husbands while conveniently forgetting the sentence immediately following about husbands sacrificing their lives for their wives). As for what you said about the crucifixion, I'm sure there are some people out there who believe that, but it's not really the prevailing view. Religion may be stupid, but at least criticize it for the right reasons.

i don't know what they're going to call this new baby, but i feel like it could be something like ruth, sarah or rachel. or even mary.

and last night when i was laying in bed it crossed my mind that paul's nickname could be paulstachio, keeping in with the nut theme.

Ohhhhhhh, this poor girl. All she's capable of doing is repeating the script she's been given. I am shaking my head at the fact that members of her cult think that her ramblings are worthwhile and valuable enough to post online for the "edification" of others.

Has anybody been able to scare up any video of Priscilla sounding like a normal human being, and not a zombie shot full of valium?

I finally looked at the full video. Ouch. Anyone else think that poor Priscilla is absolutely dreading labor?

Yes, Priscilla slipped. It's a girl! If we are opening a book on the names, then my vote is for something atrociously misspelled and/or made-up:

Prystynah Faythe Waller.

This makes me think it must have been hard on her last time. Does anyone remember / know if they have a midwife or is she 'on her own" with David watching the son in the living room, or do they (gasp) go to a birthing center?

All I remember is that Paul was a big baby and she had a bit of a rough time. It was a home birth.

Very good. However, that should have been the name of the first child. This one needs to be:

David didn't give many details except to say the labor was long and hard. It was a home birth and the senior Wallers were there but not Pa and Ma Keller.

"God has graciously blessed us with a son–Paul William Waller. He arrived today, March 16 at 3:42 a.m. He is the cutest little baby, but a big one weighing 9 pounds 11 ounces and 22 inches long. God’s mercy was with us all of the way as the labor was longer and harder than we anticipated."

Surely if God was showing mercy the labour would have been shorter and easier?

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!
