Real Life Fundie Encounters: Part 5


Coconut Flan

Recommended Posts

Had a twofer at the grocery store today - Hutterites and a fundamentalist Mormon woman (not together of course). The Hutterites have been in these parts a long time but it concerns me how common it is to see the fundamentalist Mormons now.

What general part of the country do you live in?  Are the fundmentalist Mormons you're referencing dressing in FLDS style -- long pastel dresses, long hair done just so, presumably polygamous? Or are you referring to regular LDS Mormons who have taken it to the nth degree?

FLDS-style with the long pastel dresses and hair usually done in that loose but tucked-up wispy braid. I’m in the northwest.

Some of Warren Jeff’s’ group has spread out. They aren’t all in one place. So it’s possible you saw a Jeffs group.

I just checked and we have a Tacos4Life in the general Memphis area.  I checked the menu and it looks pretty good, but like a lot of other cities every other restaurant is some form of Mexican.  And we all grew up with family-owned local restaurants that spread over the area, then all the "outsiders" moved in and ran them out of town.  Their dips and sauces are sold in grocery stores in a fairly widespread area.  It's Pancho's cheese dip, and some salsas.

I only brought up tacos for life because I associate the place with the Duggers.

I wasn’t home when this happened but saw on my Ring. Curious if they noticed my mezuzah or not 😂

They probably have no idea what that is. Doubt they ever encountered one at home in Utah.

I was once chased down by Mormon missionaries on the street in Frankfurt, Germany and they were shocked that I knew what they were (duh, I'm an educated American and know your uniforms! : ). Then I told them I was Unitarian and they had never heard of such a thing.

In fundy theological news,  I was driving my young nephew yesterday and he declared to me, while discussing natural history, that the World was Made in 6 Days.  Oh shit, I thought! What fundy website has he stumbled on?? I asked him who told him that? Dr. McCoy, he said, and I thought that was some theologian he ran across on Youtube.  Then he clarified that it was Dr. McCoy on his favorite old tv show... 🤣

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
