I feel that it's either been here or FB but I hope to watch all of it. I couldn't the first time and then I lost it. Thanks for posting.

I dug out the old thread for you. :)

I found Kristina incredibly articulate.  I would love to have a follow up interview.

Thanks! 

Kristina is extremely articulate. Thankfully her parents felt it was important for her to go to a real, accredited college. Thank goodness she was strong enough to get out of the crazy!

In a country with the highest percentage of it's population behind bars, often for minor offences, it is beyond me that the Pearls roam free. A presidential candidate that would promise to outlaw their book and send them off to a place where they will never encounter a minor has my vote.

Yes! In many countries it's illegal to ever spank or beat children (I read somewhere that it is legal in parts of/whole of USA?). Maybe the Pearls could still get jail time on the grounds of encouraging child abuse or something? One can dream.

I somehow missed the point of blanket training where the Pearls advocate enticing the child with something, then smacking them for trying to get it. The whacking was bad enough, but the enticing is downright evil and crazy-making. How on earth can you trust your parents or caregivers when they appear to be giving you a treat, then turn around and hurt you? Michael Pearl is the devil incarnate.

Corporal punishment of children in the home is legal in all states, even if (thankfully) it's started to fall out of favor in many areas. It's actually still legal in schools in a few states, too. 

Considering To Train Up a Child was released like 20 years ago, I'd say if we haven't seen any prosecution by now we won't ever. Either because it wouldn't hold up in court, or because there's simply not enough public interest in the cases.

There's a Mennonite-run store in my area that has some unique and interesting items, but I avoid it because the last time I was there I saw TTUAC and I can't support that.  I was shocked that it took until 1985 for New York to ban corporal punishment in public schools.

"At home, it felt like a battlefield."

This brought back so many awful ... not memories, necessarily, but *feelings*. Those feelings of being trapped with nowhere to go and no one to help. It's been more than 20 years, but man, those feelings don't go away. And her description of going to the conferences and seminars, where everyone is so smiley and dressed up and perfect -- and then you go home. I always thought my family was broken and damaged. But as more people get out and talk, I realize that we all were. We were all just hiding it.

Fundy kids are the best little actors ever. 

I'm glad she's out, and I'm glad she's speaking out.

Hi guys! 

For those of you who had watched the interview Chris Shelton (a researcher on cults)  did with an IBLP survivor, they did a detailed, documentary-style follow up. 

 

(If this is in the wrong thread, please correct. Thanks!) 

Here it is:

Very watchable! Not Spielberg quality but it does not mince words. I missed, in the first documentary, that the male narrator is a Scientology survivor!

Chris Shelton has a ton of experience with cults--he was a Scientologist. Now he puts out videos.

Chris Shelton has another IBLP doc (an interview with Kristiana Miner who was raised Quiverfull). The snippets he shows from Michael Pearl are literally chilling.

      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 highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      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!!
