JRod88: Better Kierkegaard than Kardashian

I really thought it was a basic fundie belief that only Jesus is without sin. But Jill thinks she is without sin. She thinks she’s on the same level as Jesus, which seems super sacreligious. 

Jill would never survive as a Catholic. How many of the Seven deadly Sins does she herself commit?

Pride

Lust

Envy

Gluttony

Sloth

Wrath

Greed

I cannot overstate how the Rodlets will have a VERY long road to recovery if they do mentally separate at all. 

It will be very hard for them to separate with the way Jill smothers them.

Pride--"I'm the bestest and most Godly Christian ever!  eleventy!"

Lust--this is the only one she's kept under wraps.  if she's ever fantasized about a man other than DRod, we'll never know about it.

Envy--she clearly wants the fame and fortune of the Duggars and Bateses.

Gluttony--"snacks for later."

Sloth--she has a cosmetology license that she blatantly refuses to use.

Wrath--just look at all the Angry-Jill avatars around here over the last several months.

Greed--grifting, plain and simple.

 

off the top of my head, she has 6 out of 7.  see my notes above.

Usually the explanation is that it's a way to glorify God, which seems consistent with the way they're using the story of Amy's injury as part of their ministry.

I really hate the theology that God directly causes bad things to happen to people. My own family have always had more of a "shit happens" philosophy where tragedies are just a part of life and not inflicted directly by God. It still has its logical inconsistencies with the belief in an omniscient, omnipotent, omnibenevolent god, but I still think it's preferable to believing that God is directly causing suffering.

I like to think God helps us through it but doesn't cause it. Bad things happen. To parapharse Call the Midwife..... when one of the nurse's fiancee died after an accident, Sister Julianne said God isn't in the event, He is in the response to the event.

I've recently joined a support group for women with abusive moms and sadly Jill probably doesn't even NEED the three hour long calls to keep him tethered. All week I've been reading things written by smart, capable, educated, employed, caring women who have identified their parent's behavior as abuse but who just can't help themselves from going back. Maybe this time she means it. I know I don't owe her money but I just feel so guilty. I want to go no contact but I can't because [literally any excuse].

I cannot overstate how the Rodlets will have a VERY long road to recovery if they do mentally separate at all. 

(Also here's to taking a week to realize that a support group can actually be super triggering and maybe THAT'S why I've been a bear with a hair trigger rage the past couple days. I need a Captain Obvious to watch over me I swear to god)

You reminded me of something that happened years ago. I got a book from the library with the title Toxic Parents or Toxic Parenting—something like that. I didn’t get too far into reading the book before throwing it against the wall and having to take it back to the library.

I wasn’t able to revisit the subject until long after my parents had died. So yeah. I get what you’re saying. (Hugs). Thinking good thoughts in your direction.

There is definitely a school of thought that God sends hardships and tragedies to test our faith and (this one always made me vomit) "glorify him." I can do without such a God. With friends like that, who needs enemies. 

If this is what Jill believes then I think she needs to attend an accredited bible college before she offers herself for teaching and mentoring. Having 13 children does not make you qualified in anything but baby making. I don't understand why having a large family = ministry when there seems to be so much confusion on who God is. I get that people understand the bible differently but if God is good (which I assume Jill believes) how is he doing evil on a whim? That seems a fundamental misunderstanding. One of many, most likely.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I love our little Rod pond here at FJ. @refugee I have a book about C-PTSD hidden away underneath my underwear because I kept having nightmares when I tried to read it 😅 Gonna try again with edibles and hot cocoa and a Snuggie.

Jill, patron saint of pointless drama

@FecundFundieFundus I love this!

Back to topic, I am not surprised that she's guilt-tripping Timothy even as she mourned him just a few months ago.  Mothers like her do not let go that easily.

It genuinely hurts me to see the Rod daughter's going down the same path as the Maxwell and Botkin daughters. It's like being able to see but not being able to save someone from an accident or distressing situation.

I followed the Maxwell blog for a long time. It was depressing though. I don't need to check in with them to tell me what I already know-none of those girls are out of the house. More than likely the same with the Bodkin's. 

If there was a way, in earnest, to plead with the Rods to turn the situation around I would do it. The only ways I can think of are manipulative. (Pretend to be a Christian and initiate a friendship) But the situation is getting as hard to watch as the other two families did.

I imagine Jill is prompting Tim to tell her about unwholesome College life. I can’t imagine it’s too scary. He is attending a very Christian Bible College, goes to church and probably rooms with boys with similar values. I can see him embellishing some stories to give his momma fodar so she can be sanctimonious that her child is more Christian than other children and he won’t be corrupted like so many other students!

Eh, Nurie is not yet 20 and the rest are still minors. I think it's too early to say if the Rod girls will end up like the Maxwell or Botkin daughters.

I don't think it is. It's all following a pattern. It goes downhill even further when you add Jill's control issues into the mix.

There’s an age appropriate son left in the Wissmann family. I’d like to see Kaylee with him. Her sisters in law could show her how to wear makeup in an understated manner and she could help with the tiling business as she like country life. His family sings so she could join in. Not sure if they’ve ever met, but that doesn’t matter on the speculation bus. They could also tour in the exact opposite direction the Rods were grifting.

I think for the girls their only way of truly breaking free of Jill is if they marry someone who sees Jill for who she is and insists that contact with her is limited. 

Some of the boys she ignores might have a better chance of straight up rebelling and cutting her out of their lives. Timothy was always the golden boy, but one of the teen boys(can't remember his name) always looks miserable. Being miserable, combined with constantly living in the shadow of Perfect Timothy and Jill obviously not favoring them might just be the incentive to bolt. Wouldn't be the first fundie family to have that happen.

Does Kaylee like country life, though? We've extrapolated that from a comment made by Jill about Kaylee wanting to marry a farmer IIRC. I think there's some evidence to support her being more interested in townie things: she lights up when doing those (awful) Plexus skits, appears to enjoy acting silly for the camera when it's allowed and shows a modicum of actual taste in makeup/hair/jewelry. David and Jill have made themselves a little isolation chamber of religious mania out in the boonies but they don't really do any "country" things except hunt. My idle speculation is Kaylee thinks cowboys are cute but can't articulate "rough men in big hats and boots are attractive" because obviously fundie family so she's like "maybe I'll marry a farmer?"

Age aside, I also get a different vibe from the Maxwells (I don’t know much about Botkin daughters).   It seems like Steve is too much of a control freak to even let the Maxwell daughters meet anyone.  On the other hand, Jill seems to be promoting Nurie; Jill Is genuinely upset that God has not dropped a perfect GYM into Nurie’s life. While there might be some similarities between the two families (thinking themselves superior, making it hard to meet their standards, for instance), I think Jill is DESPERATE for Nurie to marry, to have her moment as Nurie’s Matron of Honor.  As soon as Jill and David find that perfect combo of never-spied-porn, never-kissed, no-birth-control, pro-spackled-makeup, KJV only, skirts (on women) only, never-masturbated, jeans-in-the-pool, Plexus-selling, Trump-loving, LGTBQAI-hating “godly” young (or, heck, maybe even middle aged) man, IT’S ON!

Unwholesome college life...like he’s going to frat parties and bars or something. Hahaha. Not gonna happen.

Maybe he’ll watch movies where women wear pants! :pearlclutching:

I enjoy a fluffy man myself...but only a nice, non-arrogant, non-David type of fluffy man!

I'm currently being triggered by repeated visits to my fundie parents (my dad is ill) so I'm with you on the mental disturbance. I hope you can work through it and that the support group ends up being helpful! I wonder how many of us see a bit of Jill in our own mothers...a scary thought.

Jill posted more Florida pictures on Instagram. I’m glad the kids seemed to have fun at the beach; developmentally appropriate fun seems so rare in the Rod household. I’m surprised the little one (Sofia?) is allowed to play with that truck. What if someone mistakes her for a boy despite the fact that she’s dressed in pink from head to toe? (Sarcasm) 

I can’t believe Jill posted the picture of her and Janessa on the beach since her hair and makeup aren’t up to their usual standards.
