Continued from here:

Derick has apparently never seen a grifting opportunity he didn't like.

And they were advised not to bring children under 10. Diarrhea is serious for infants and toddlers. Izzy was three months. 

This is just the worst thing of all. Lying cheating and stealing are one thing, putting an infant at risk to pretend missionary.........

Is successful grifting a requirement of this program (or whatever they're calling it) he's in?  If so, what will donations of $125 get him?

The material online says it is not required contrary to what Derick had posted.  This is from the Cross Church School of Ministry FAQs:

Quote

Is it appropriate for me to raise funding for my Cross Church School of Ministry program costs?

Yes! In fact, we highly encourage you to raise private funds from those who know you are called by God into the ministry and believe in and support that calling. This could be family, friends, your home church, etc. We encourage our students to create an exhaustive list of such contacts and send them a support letter along with a Cross Church School of Ministry brochure (we will provide as many of these as you need). Consider this as a goal: If you found just 10 people who believe in you and your calling, who would each commit to give $100 per month for one year…, that equals $12,000. We believe this is very achievable. It is common for people to raise support in this manner for mission trips that cost $2,000–$4,000 or more. And remember, as part of your time with the Cross Church School of Ministry, you will be going on THREE mission trips.

Highly encourage does not equal mandatory requirement unless one hears and reasons like a Derick Dillard (Duggar).

Well, it was done in two stages. One person donated $100, and then a later donor added $25. Assuming, of course, that it wasn't the same person donating and claiming to be separate people to make the fundraiser say there were multiple backers.

I am surprised more stupid leg humpers haven't donated money.  $125 Derelict?  You are so pathetic.  Those comments are gold.

Ya know, if my brittle diabetic, 55 year old husband can spend 12 hours a day on his feet with irregular breaks for meals, etc. then fucking douchederik can get up off his ass and get a fucking JOB! Ok, I'm unemployed...I wish I wasn't but I don't think I could cope with a job right now because of that fucking car accident. 

He's got a fucking degree, there's a shitton of jobs he could do with that degree, including doing the bridge to teaching program where you get provisionally certified for 2 years and complete a MEd. I've thought of doing that since they're crying for STEM teachers here in sin city. I need to scrape up the bucks to take the ONE class I need to finish undergrad...AND..the bridge to teaching program PAYS for the MEd. Talk about SCORE!!!! But, that would involve shit like WORKING...

I already wondered how long it would take until they close that fundraising grifting. I didn't expect it that soon.

Derick is unfit for service. He is unfit to do missionary work. As far as repentance he has done none of it. He closes his ministry the exact time he has to show what he has done with funding??

To Cross Church. Is this the kind of missionary you want to support and be in your program?

He has been caught embellishing the truth, lying by omission,  hiding his Financials , unwilling to provide and work for his family.

He has been unloving, unkind, abrasive to unbelievers,  and points fingers at the "sin" of others on an international platform.

Cross Church are you going to overlook this behaviour and put him on a pedestal  as an example to the youth of C3, and a missionary bearing the name of Cross Church?  

Where pray tell are your standards?

To Derick: Get a proper job you fucking loser.

I really wonder how the rest of the family responds to Derick when they see him. Pity? Consoling (spelling?) him for hurt feelings? Agreeing there is "still much work to do" with the ebil Satan? Or are they silently agreeing with the functional thinking people and upset he is distroying their brand even further? Cute Spurgeon can only take them so far. He does know how to handle his balls better than Derick though :my_biggrin: .

I can't believe I'm going to say this since they frequently just copy/paste from here but that comment from the inquisitor journalist was really good. That's how People Mag should be speaking about the Duggars.

I looked on instagram and noticed Jessa has liked every post of Jill's except the cross church missionary ones. I'd like to assume that even they think this decision is terrible too.

Reasons why Derrick isn't the new Josh:

1) Derrick isn't a molester he just has the same deplorable beliefs as the rest of the clan.

2) Josh and the rest of them actually did a pretty good job of keeping quiet whereas Derrick is shouting it from the rooftops.

 

What TLC are really concerned about (If they are, I think they might actually be loving all the publicity) is $$$$$$$$ and ratings.

Derek should watch the movie "Chariots of Fire" to see what being a dedicated missionary looks like. (it is based on a true story). Derek appears to be playing at being a missionary and seems like a complete phony.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
