Priscin for a boy.   Although they wouldn't name a boy after his mom. So how about Priscina for a girl or Damascus for a boy?


I could totally get behind the name Damascus for a boy! I kinda like how unusual it is. If the don't use it, maybe Jill and Derick will. It goes with Israel if they want to keep up with the places in the bible theme.

Damascus is in Siria, I don't see a fundie using this name.

I know an old lady called Palmira. Is it a biblical place or just an historic one?

Priss and Davey have a new blog post up.  They're home.  They went to the Noah's Ark place.  In a video at the end of the post Priss explains...with fervor...that there was only one door in the real ark, so it was the only door to salvation, and so is being saved.  IIRC, she has also gotten extra preachy around the births of Paul and Davia.

And she still comes across as...not right. I could only watch a small bit of the video because listening to her, and watching her, as she speaks is quite literally painful.

Palmyra (also in Syria) was originally called Tadmor appears in the Bible (II Chronicles 8.4) as a desert city fortified by Solomon. (There is a mention of a city of Tamar in I Kings 9.18, also fortified by Solomon, which may refer to Tadmor but could also be a place near the Dead Sea.) Tadmor is also mentioned by Josephus (Antiquities, Book VIII) along with the Greek name of Palmyra, as a city built by Solomon. 

Palmyra has fallen victim to the Syrian Civil War and ISIL. This picture shows the Temple of Bel in Palmyra, it was blown up in September 2015.

Thanks for the information .

They're destroying everything, they're terrible to all levels.

Those pictures and the conflict in Syria are heartbreaking. Thank you for the history.

    You say that as if they were not completely ignorant. Damascus is in the BIBLE!

My issue with Damascus is that it might not be so great to name your child after the epicenter of the bloodiest civil war in modern history. Way too many "Damascus is blowing up" jokes once he gets old enough to throw tantrums.

Damaris is also a possible biblical female D name. Most steer clear though. Dam as the first syllable turns people off. So my money is still on Dinah. 

But all jokes aside, I am thinking Peter for a boy.

I'll put $10 on any name except Joshua. :)

But seriously if going P this time for either sex then Peter / Prudence.  (Piper and Phoebe to follow...power of three!)

If doing the D for girls and P for boys then Damaris / Peter.  If that's their theme they will have a smallish quiver if they stick to biblical names.  

If I were married to him I'd go full on Puritan and do a Patiencewiththyfather or Dousedinhubris. 

Of all the fundies we snark in I have a soft spot for Priscilla since I do think she's genuinely kind and I just hope that jackass to whom she's married has some redeeming qualities beneath the condescending shitlord exterior.  I doubt it, but for her sake I hope it's true.

Maybe he helps ironing Davia's dresses haha.

From all the young fundie couples we discuss, these two are probably who are following fundie/gothard rules more rigidly. I'm sorry for the kids because these parents have too much to prove  about themselves and I see them training and brainwashing full time, to show the world how godly they are as a family.

For what it's worth, I don't pick up a beater vibe from him.  I also think he had a relatively happy childhood (fundie-style) and wants the same for his own kids.  Don't know how much genuine warmth there is between him and Priscilla but I hope - for her sake - that it's there and just not so apparent on camera.

Hope that a few families get together for homeschooling.  I see some potential issues with that.

I didn't mean to imply physical abuse, I never got that vibe.  But I never got the feeling he adores her - more making a 'right' marriage and that makes me sad.  I hope wrong.

Not to worry, I didn't think that you were implying physical abuse.  The sense I get is that he's kind of fond of her, and kind of frustrated - sort of how one might feel about a cute, loyal puppy who can't quite get the hang of being trained.

I agree, David comes off as someone who treats Priscilla as a pet instead of a person. She is a prop.

Looks like there was another "Family Conference" last week. Prissy looks ready to pop.

I presume she will. They haven't done hospital births so far.

True. I had forgotten its the Bates who are ok with Hospital births. I pray its an uncomplicated birth for her though. Mostly due to you know that she will need more strength to keep up with now three blessings.

Hit the nail on the head. He doesn't give off a physically abusive vibe, but I don't think he really respects Priscilla beyond her role as his dutiful, pretty wife/broodmare. I do get a controlling vibe from him, and I do think that he chose Priscilla to marry because she seems so pliable and eager to please.

He needed a woman who would have as many children as he wanted. Someone who wouldn't complain about going all over the country when she is about to give birth.

      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.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
