I have a feeling she's found someone or something else to attach herself to.  I don't think she knows how to function without a guru and something to feel self-righteous about. 

She's probably the only human being on earth who is BOTH a Universalist and a Flat-Earther, and she's quite passionate about both on social media. But, well, this is Jen we're talking about, so who knows how long either of those beliefs will last. She needs to keep "learning and growing," you know. :pb_rollseyes:

I haven't looked at Jen's FB for ages but I see that she is still into every conspiracy theory going, she just loves to be different, and is a big Trump fan.  No surprise. 

Is the Leazer Group an MLM or does it just strongly resemble one?

Jen is always trying to recruit people on her FB page, so I think it's probably MLM.

It is all that upline downline chatter.  She just had a huge FB fight with someone for dropping out of TLG as though she'd been betrayed personally.  Jen has a very "difficult" personality, to put it politely.;)

If we could ever put together a VF Big Brother house with Doug, Beall, Jen, Darnell, Bradrick, Kevin Swanson, etc.  I would watch the shit out of that.

So brilliant. With drop ins from Spanky, Flo, A Duggar, Nolan. Wow. What a show.

And is it a Christian MLM? Every time I see Leazer, my mind tries to combine the words Lazarus + sleaze.

Well, if that person was part of Jen's downline.... ;-)

Yes, she is intense and crazy as a bed bug.

If they were willing to star in it I would crowdfund this so hard.

And if they managed to get @JohnRobertMoore too, to stir things up, flirt outrageously with everyone, and steal Flo away from Doug to make movies with him instead, I'd probably join you in the crowdfunding.

My mom checked up on him via fb a few weeks ago, wow has he changed. This has probably already been discussed on the site, but I think he is trying too hard.

I don't think he knows quite who he is yet.  I see him as a bit of a mixed up kid still.  I do think he has been through a lot.  He's left Fundamentalism and burned a lot of boats there, likes to be outrageous, goes back and works for people who promote Fundie values, but does seem to be changing in some areas.

I've torn a few strips of JRM in my time (as have others here) for various reasons.  I will say that I think his saving grace is a wicked sense of humor.

Big Brother is my summer guilty pleasure and all this talk of a fundie version sounds so awesome I’m almost willing to get down on my knees and pray for it. Almost.

Hi Deanna, have you ever met the Morton Clan? How have the former VF community reacted to Alen Smith’s crime and Katie’s subsequent  divorce?

 For some reason I have always had a soft spot for Kelly Brown – Bradrick and  was happy for her and Peter when they left Texas and  genuinely sorry when their marriage fell apart.

These are two high-profile divorces in the Fundieland in which neither of women possesses an education  or means of supporting herself  or her children.   In the “Return of The Daughters”  Peter spoke rather unfavorably of a nursing degree that Kelly may have had and how it would have been a waste of time and effort on her part to attain it. Is there any talk about relaxing the rules on educating females just in case something like this happens?

Hi Deanna,

I am from a very liberal bubble of queers and atheists and UUs so hearing about your experiences is like having the chance to talk to a world traveler who also Time travels.

I am wondering as a disabled person myself how did VF treat kids and adults with disabilities? Did people try to pray away autism and dyslexia or did they get their kids help? I can’t imagine homeschooling a kid with learning disabilities without training in how to do it. How did any families manage, if you know? 

Also, your family seemed much more into doing actual schooling than some families we follow and you obviously read a ton. Did this set you apart from other kids? Did you know that you were better educated?

I'd make Lourdes and Kelly B. the God-like ringleaders of the whole mess.  Let them set the terms, the challenges, change the living environment as they see fit.  Basically let them manipulate the hell out of the very people who manipulated them for so long.  I'd make a separate control room so they could do it all from a remote location and would't actually have to interact face to face with those assholes.

The problem with the Big Brother format is that somebody gets voted out every week. Can we vote another person in every week? Better yet, make the HoH room the Cornucopia equivalent and have it be like the Fundie Hunger Games.

Or both! Just have a set number and people can be replaced. For once, fundies being Quiverfull comes in handy - an unending supply of madness.

I think you mentioned the Botkins.  We've all long wondered why Pappy Botkin can't seem to marry off those two daughters of his. We suspected Natty Darnell made a play for one of them but was rebuffed. I'd love some insight into what's going on with Anna-Sofia and Elizabeth.

      Peanut was watching me change the newspaper in her cage earlier. She’s currently eating said newspaper. Because reasons.

      I am beyond angry at Mr. Briefly's mother. My daughter posted a comment on her own facebook page that discussed parellels between nazi Germany and what is happening today as far as immigrants, detention camps, etc. My MIL left one of the rudest, meanest things I have ever seen. She told me daughter not to post things like that on her own page, she said horrible things. I just posed a long comment to my MIL, and told her that she has destroyed her relationship with her granddaughter and probably any hope of one in the future. My daughter is so hurt, and she is angry. And so am I. I try to be forgiving, but I'm not really inclined to forgive this one. Maybe I will be, but my daughter probably won't ever forgive her for this one. OK, rant over - and thank you for listening.

      Did another photo shoot this morning (strictly trade for prints, because it's a fun hobby), this one for Paul McCartney/Another Day.  one of those incredibly pretty little songs that hides just devastating lyrics behind beautiful harmony:  As she posts another letter to the sound of five People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive It's just another day.  There's a furniture shop near where I live that sells second hand and "unique" furniture/decor.  They had a neat little vanity someone built out of a Singer sewing machine table so we did the photos there, trying to convey the world weariness of the lyrics in a single photo.  It felt good.  We'll see how the prints turn out.
      It always surprises me how well Neptune and I work in these kinds of situations.  We'd had one conversation about this shoot, ten days or a couple weeks ago.  A few key words, couple props that he specifically wanted, not much else.  We walked into the building and started setting up without needing to really talk very much.  Just feels easy and in sync in a really comfortable way.

      I went to get a snack and ran into someone someone who asked if I went outside for the two fire drills today. What fire drills? This is the third time fire alarms went off everywhere in a building except where I was. Why does this keep happening to me?

      Has anybody else had issues with the latest Windows update?  Windows 10 has screwed up a lot of computers, mine included. Apparently,.Microsoft knew that it was going to cause problems and released it anyway. Now they talk like they are working on a problem.  OK, so I guess they are going to pay for the repairs to my laptop since I had to take it in to be fixed?  Due to their stupidity in releasing a known problem and not having a patch ready, but still they should not have released it knowing it was going to do this!!

      Peanut likes sitting on her hidey-house! She’s eating a bit of honeydew melon which the pigs have never had before (although they have had watermelon). 

      There is still a bit of an abscess left; it’s reduced a bit in size but not completely. Our nearest vet clinic is mainly cat/dog related although the woman we’ve been seeing does have an interest/knowledge about small animals. We’re going to contact another clinic who are an exotics centre; our vet said that she could do a slightly more invasive procedure but that it’d be best if we took Peanut to a specialist place. 
      The vet also said today that we can reunite her with Cinnamon and Grace; there was no evidence of a bite mark but we’ll still have to be careful because of where the abscess is. The main reason we kept her separate was so she could recover post-sedation when the drainage site needed to properly heal. 
      I’m not worried about her health-wise in any major sense, but it’ll be a relief when it’s dealt with!

      Received news (from my dermatologist) that I tested positive for ANA, which indicates I have some type of auto-immune problem. But I can't see a rheumatologist until my primary care refers me, and I don't have an appointment with primary care until the 28th. And who knows how long it's going to take me to get into a specialist. So now I just get to sit around thinking about what's potentially wrong with me and being scared shitless about it.

      The substitute pastor dislikes me and my candor and forthrightness. As he was giving pre-worship announcements, I needed to blow my nose. Did it so quietly! — but he interrupted himself with “gesundheit!” — and I felt embarrassed and in retaliation rolled my eyes or scowled every time he looked my way during sermon. Also held subsequent nose-clearings for when HE spoke during service. It felt snarky--right at first, now I’m just mad that these patriarchal bozos foul up the peace of music and hymns and prayers with their attitudes and actions. Thanks to FJ for providing this little forum-ette. I feel better for venting.
