My Good Deed for the Day


Rhetorica

Recommended Posts

Today I was doing a quick sweep of a local thrift store and happened upon Michael and Debi Pearl's _No Greater Joy: Volume Three_ (2001). It's a compilation of about two years' worth of their newsletters. I snapped it up in hopes of possibly sparing the world another Lydia Schatz situation.

If anyone here wants it, let me know and I'll happily mail it to you. Otherwise I'll add it to my collection of fundie artifacts.

I love that you have a collection of fundie artifacts.

I used to collect chick tracts, until my husband THREW THEM AWAY because he didn't know that I collected them to mock them.

I had fundie artifacts, but I kept ripping them up and throwing them away. Now I don't have any! But my house is a lot less cluttery and feels happy. We should seriously consider a nationwide pop up fundie museum. SERIOUSLY. I wonder if we could pull that off. We could have all the stuff kept together or whatever and then have little home party type things where we bring out the artifacts for our friends and take donations for something. Gosh, now that I say that it sounds like a ton of work. We should at least have a FJ conference sometime where we have former members show us how to dress, etc. We could have little workshops and a fundie fashion show. Not in a mean way though... it couldn't be snarky over the top, but just informative and entertaining. Kind of like the FJ South by Southwest.

After you burn it, burn some sage in the same room to get rid of the bad mojo. :character-jaws:

My best friend used to take Chick tracts and paste cat heads on all the people. Good times - much better read that way.

I'm glad you got it out of the thrift store, that way some unsuspecting shmoe won't get sucked into the Pearlverse and kill somebody, like you said. Do you have a clothesline? Peg it up, burn it, video it, and post it on youtube. While it's burning, talk about all the horrible things the Pearls promote. Make sure Michael and Debbi Pearl are in the title. That way, the next time the said shmoe looks for something the Pearls have out on youtube, your video will come up in the que. All about informed choices, right? ;)

Back in the day, they used the Sears catalog. I'm thinking this could serve the same purpose.

*disappointed because our extensive smiley list does not include the steaming pile o' poo*

Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions. I'm planning to write my dissertation on the rhetoric of fundamentalist women so if I can stand the bad mojo, I'll probably hang on to it in case I need to reference it at some point.

But if we ever lose heat in the dead of winter and need to start burning things to stay warm, you can bet this will be one of the first "sacrifices" I'll make! :lol:

      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… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      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!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
