In which Robert is a sky piloting pastor

Recommended Posts

I let it slip yesterday in the comments that due to my overwhelming scaryness size I was asked to be security at the local shelter’s Thanksgiving meal. Well a few hours later that somehow worked into not just security but giving the message.

Now it’s been twelve years since I was a sky pilot. Ten years since I gave my last sermon. So I’m a little rusty to say the least.

Later he brings up his "bearded mug" again. What a gross and weird phrase.

Is it normal for homeless shelters to have a sermon during the Thanksgiving meal?

Am I the only one who sometimes wonders if CM is the greatest Poe ever? Because I get those vibes from this post.

I almost feel embarrassed for him reading that. We all saw his picture. There is no "overwhelming scariness size" going on there. He is just an average middle aged overweight guy. He would not get a second glance when out in public.

I'm guessing what really happened is he was asked to come help serve food, he brings up he is a pastor to them every single day until they finally relent and ask him to say a word or two and give the blessing before the meal.

It seems every day of the week Robert is trying his hand at something new. I'd say he should try his hand at going away, but I suppose he did that already. :roll:

He seriously claims a new career every other day.

Boobert, you're just not that big. I get that you WANT to be a tall guy, but you know there're actually no real benefits to being big? In fact, there is some evidence that taller people are more prone to cancer. How's about you be ok with the way God made you and stop trying to be an Internet giant.

I'm practically vibrating with anticipation for the day he tells us about how he worked as a scuba instructor in Barbados, rescued child soldiers in the Congo and healed Ebola patients in Liberia just by laying hands on them. Please make it happen. :cracking-up:

So he was giving sermons in his early to mid twenties? I think he is lying. It surely has not been ten years since his last sermon.He probably gives sermons EVERY. FUCKING. DAY. At his house.

Also, what’s the earliest a person can reasonably become a “sky pilot†(WTAF does this mean, by the way?!)? Would it be reasonable for him to achieve this by his early 20s?

I don't know what the rules are, we are however speaking of the incredibly gifted and talented Robert. So he was probably 12 when he became a sky piloting pastor.

ETA seems like a sky pilot is a Chaplin for the armed forces. Did he mention his service during Veteran's Day?

You don't "let it slip" when you're posting a blog. That happens in conversation.

I saw his pics. Nothing scary and how hard is working security at a Thanksgiving meal for the homeless? Like, is he gonna need to carry a piece?!

He just reminds me so much of a mall cop, strutting around trying to be an important officer of the law.

Right before his guilt ridden plea for people to donate to his pet charity, he wrote a blog with a fantastical story about how he had to wrestle unruly homeless men to the ground.

I can't figure out why he feels the need to mention his size all the time. He's so afraid people will forget he's a man, I guess. Is he so used to using his size to intimidate his wife that he just can't help himself in his writing.

I get the feeling he wants everyone to believe he's some big tall handsome man who can do everything but that he's also gentle and humble and has no idea how wonderful he is. He wants to be viewed as the "popular basketball star who is still nice to the disabled kids," the "gentle giant who plays with his little girl," "the master of everything who is still humble enough to disparage his own looks, even though he's drop dead handsome."

But he's so afraid nobody will notice his good deeds, or his gentle spirit, or his talent at anything that he has to point them out - in a "humble" way, of course; just as he has to point out his size.

I actually think Robert's blog isn't that bad as far as the way he delivers a message; he tends to be a little more tolerant of others than Lori, although we know they both are disgusted by single moms. I think he TRIES to have a more gentle approach, even if I disagree with much of his content. But he always has to add a little self promotion that just screams arrogance. I don't think he will ever learn humility, which is a complete contradiction to Christianity, in my opinion.

Sometimes I think this tiny scraps of tolerance are just something he throws in hoping someone will like him.

I think you're right, especially since he can't stop himself form insulting somebody every few days. I think he's trying to undo the first impression he gave of himself with the original blog and the "cabin" story. I would be inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt, as I've said before, if he addressed his own shortcomings; maybe talk about things he should have done differently when he was "saving his marriage,' or things he did to contribute to the downfall of his marriage. He will never take responsibility for anything in a negative way, though; and if he ever addresses his own issues it will undoubtedly be attached to how Amanda drove him to it - "Amanda kept refusing me so I turned to porn."

oh dear fucking lord :roll: robert, seriously, why the need for lies and exaggerations? what benefit do you really receive from this, besides stroking your own ego? you do realize you can stroke your own ego in private, right? (you do also realize that pride is considered one of the deadly sins, too, right?).

You know, with the way Robert lies about and exaggerates everything, I will admit that I have wondered (hoped?) that he was exaggerating certain elements in the cabin story... trying to fit in with the "cool kids" (Ken and Lori). If that were the case, he would still be a liar and still be emotionally abusive, but it wouldn't maybe be as bad as we thought.

Although Amanda's version of the story was no less horrifying.

But I can still hope that for the sake of her and the kids that his original "my wife was in rebellion" story included his typical flair for exaggeration.

{L_MESSAGE_HIDDEN}:
Also, can someone who isn't banned (dammit) ask him what a sky pilot is? For all we know, he thinks a sky pilot is someone who flies a little two-seater around while throwing Bibles out the door.

A sky pilot generally refers to a military chaplain but can also refer to any chaplain. I don't think it's likely Robert was a military chaplain. They're officers and have the following requirements:

â—¦A clergy person in your denomination or faith group.

â—¦Qualified spiritually, morally, intellectually and emotionally to serve as a Chaplain in the Army.

â—¦Sensitive to religious pluralism and able to provide for the free exercise of religion by all military personnel, their family members and civilians who work for the Army.

•Educationally, you must:

â—¦Possess a baccalaureate degree of not less than 120 semester hours.

â—¦Possess a graduate degree in theological or religious studies, plus have earned at least a total of 72 semester hours in graduate work in these fields of study.

Seems like Robert wouldn't qualify on a number of levels....

Members of the military also must pass basic intelligence tests (standards vary among the branches) AND pass fitness tests.

well, boobert keeps reminding us he's stronger than...what...97% of men? 99%? he's a "mountain of a man" as he keeps reminding us in not so subtle ways, so surely the fitness test would be no problem. :roll:

Maybe I'm a little too sensitive about this kind of thing.

<<

But I find it offensive when anybody assigns themselves a name that they haven't earned, especially regarding the military. I do know, from the many military members in my family, that most service personnel feel the same way; although, they wouldn't take the time to address someone like Robert. I guess Robert thinks as lowly of our military as Ken does. Is that a fundie thing?

But it would be like, as he's working security, he makes people call him "Officer Robert" when he's not an policeman.

And, yes, our service men and women must repeatedly pass physical and classroom tests to maintain standing. Robert would be incapable of dong either of these, even once.

He's like a little boy saying "look at me, I'm a cowboy today!" It's just immature on his part.

      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!!

      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.
