Another fundie child murder?

I hate it that my mind immediately leaps to "fundies" when I read about a tragedy like this (10 year old girl routinely abused, finally locked in a trunk for taking a popsicle without permission), but this one has the Pearls' TTUAC all over it:

classic fundie punishments:

Deal's aunt allegedly confessed to putting hot sauce in the child's mouth, striking her with a paddle dubbed "Butt Buster" and ordering the child to sleep on the floor of a stall shower because she had a problem with wetting the bed,


Deal, who weighed just 59 pounds and was discovered in soiled clothing. . .

a shoeful of kids:

Twelve children who lived at the residence have been taken into custody by Child Protective Services,

I remember reading this story in New Times, and I don't recall anything that was explicitly fundie about them.

There doesn't seem to be anything that explicitly screams fundie to me. What does scream out to me is that these bastards can rot in hell.

It was reported on in the Daily Mail in the UK, a few months back. I remember laughing in embarassment at this gem in the comments box:

As soon as I read the headline of this article...I had a feeling that the incident had taken place in America. What is is about these people?

I don't see it as being specifically fundie (or American!)...

Poor, dear little girl. :(

Don't sound particularly fundie to me. Sometimes other people to crappy evil stuff too. We had a local case of a little girl beaten, starved, ultimately killed by her mother and stepfather, and then put in a cooler in the family's shed. She had been returned to them by CPS after previous abuse issues. :(

Many people abuse their children, so it would be ridiculous to think that only religious extremists do those sorts of things. However, the religious aspect, such as "God says we must hit our children with a rod", adds a whole religious affirmation layer to the propensity towards violence and evil those people already possess. They can also convince others to abuse the children (such as the spouse or older children) because of the obedience to God thing, and convince others not to intervene for the same reasons. The outcomes may be the same, but because it's so hard to fathom a person doing such a thing to a child in the name of God, it's just. . . I don't know. . . somehow more disgusting. If such a thing can have levels of "disgusting".

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
