Fundie families where the parents grew up Fundie?

Recommended Posts

Kim Coghlan from In A Shoe is a second generation fundie. Her parents had about 10 kids and homeschooled them, she has about 12 kids (has she had the last one yet, last time I heard she was in labor?) and is a fundie. Cant see it making the fourth generation, not now Deanna got a divorce and seems to have distanced herself and seems to be quite mainstream in her interests.

No idea what her other siblings are like though, I know some of them are still teenagers the same age as her kids, it doesn't seem like her parents or anyone in her family have any notable social media presence.

Just from what we've seen on their blog, it seems like Jill Rodrigues may be second generation fundie.

I think her fundyism started in her teens or so. She's a lot more into atrocious makeup and other things than most fundies would consider modest. And how many raised-from-the-cradle fundies would consider for a spouse a minority person who didn't convert until legal adulthood?

I don't think Kim C's people were fundie as much dirt poor regular conservative Christians who liked to fuck a lot. The step to dirt poor fundies who like to fuck a lot is not a major one.

There was an ultra-conservative homeschooling Christian family with a zillion kids in my neighborhood when I was a girl, so third-generation fundies aren't out of the question at all. I used to help the oldest boy with his lemonade stand when I was little. I think it was 12 kids total (and counting, presumably). That was 20 years ago, so almost all of those kids would be old enough to have quivers of their own by now. I don't remember their last name anymore, began with an S, the kid I played with was about my age and named Ben.

Jill and David have both talked about her parents' fundyism; Jill was homeschooled and skirts only always from what I have seen. I think the 80s makeup is just her rebellion.

Patriarchy of the kind we talk about here -- that tries to change the laws our entire society lives by is pretty new, like less than 50 years, i think. (Vision Forum, Family Integrated Churches, ATI, Dominionists) But old school patriarchy such as Amish/Mennonites has been around for centuries. The Anabaptists are opposed to being in the military because of the commandment not to kill, and they won't vote or hold office (the majority of them) because they believe God's kingdom is not of this world. Thank :fsm:

This is not a new thing where I live. Keep in mind there are a lot of fundies who pass for mainstream and don't follow false prophets like Gothard.

The Bontraegers seem to be at least 2nd generation fundies, if not even more. The wife has got a Mennonite/Anabaptist background (don't know about the husband) and 10 siblings. They seem to have a lot of family get togethers and a lot of the women wear headcovering. They seem to have a bunch of fun when they all meet and there all also family members that appear to be less fundie (women wearing pants!!!). I actually kind of like them and would love to know more about their background.

Yeah, if you read their "Family Updates" section, there are a couple of entries with pictures of Jill's family. All of the girls are wearing skirts and her sisters all seem to have 5+ kids as well. She's the only one who seems to have gotten her makeup tattooed on her face in 1983.

A photo caption quote from her "Easter" entry:

I admire my parents diligence in raising me and my 3 sisters. Due to them training us in the way that we should go, none of us have ever gone astray into the world…………all praise be to Jesus Our Lord……His precepts and promises work and are TRUE!!

There is also a definite political and financial element associated with Christian Fundamentalism.

      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.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      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!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.
