At the end of the list it states

Quote

We hope you will be with us for many years to come. Don’t worry about memorizing this list. When you violate a “don’t”, you will be told-“We don’t do that”.

of course you will be told what not to do...the entire church is made up of big brothers!

What is "Cheerwine" (R)? and now I want some. 

Cheerwine is a local NC soft drink! It's regionally well known but expanding slowly I think. It's black cherry and very bubbly. I personally don't love it, but many people do. 

(Another regional drink is Sun Drop. Have you ever had it? Like Mountain Dew but better, IMO, but has a lot of caffeine in it, as the rumor goes. Often made at diner-style places into a cherry-lemon Sun Drop drink.)

But first you have to check with the other women to make sure they don't have it or else you might be forced to return it! :)

The end of my family’s time in a cult had a list of “don’t” that was comparable. Our list included things like “daydreaming” and “family history of disease” though. It takes years to get to that point though, someone walking in off the street wouldn’t be given something like this. 
I wish I could be shocked by this.

Funnily  enough, most of the gender restrictive clothing and hairstyle rules were for men only. That is a refreshing change of pace from the bizarre fixation so many groups have on micromanaging women. 

 

Men must always wear a white T-Shirt under their officially sanctioned outer-shirt. Maybe Jane has some sort of chest hair kink?
 

Perhaps chest hair gets her all “wound up and flustered. ” Does she get all Lust-filled if she  sees little curly chest hairs sneaking out of men’s tops.

I just finished reading the list you posted . My tablet can't bring up PDF files , for some reason .  I just wanted to say that I think that this may be the absolute most severe Bible based cult I have ever seen , maybe even worse than Remnant Fellowship . They hit every marker on the BITE model , old and new version alike . {  http://old.freedomofmind.com/Info/BITE/bitemodel.php , https://freedomofmind.com/bite-model/ }  Jane Whaley , and her cohorts in leadership , have made themselves into " super apostles " . { https://www.cultwatch.com/superapostles.html , https://www.gotquestions.org/super-apostles.html }

Here are all of the rules regarding " outward holiness" standards of dress , as they pertain to women , except for not wearing the same outfit as another woman , for whatever reason .

 60. Don’t wear shorts. 61. Don’t wear sleeveless dresses or tops. 62. Don’t wear dresses above the knees. 63. Don’t wear a bathing suit without having it covered with long shorts (below the knees) and a dark t-shirt. 64. Don’t wear cargo pants. 65. Don’t wear or own anything with Nike® on it. Nothing. 66. Don’t wear black tennis shoes. 67. Don’t wear high-cut, boot-like tennis shoes

Jane Whaley makes Regina George seem laid back by comparison .  https://www.shmoop.com/mean-girls/the-plastics-rules-symbol.html

So, I was onboard with everything  until the No “Game Boy” rule.  Sure, I have to check with Jane before I attend a funeral—but to live without my 30 year old colorless gaming system—no, thank you.

137. Don’t complain about the list of “don’ts”.

And that'd be me, every day. Holy crap that list veers between creepy as hell and kind of hilarious.

That Jane woman seriously has some issues going.

Also I notice the list doesn't include social media... so if I'm scrolling through Facebook and a news item comes up that's totally fine, right?

Seriously the no reading bit would be where I noped out. Not even the Bible ffs.

Funnily  enough, most of the gender restrictive clothing and hairstyle rules were for men only. That is a refreshing change of pace from the bizarre fixation so many groups have on micromanaging women. 

 

Men must always wear a white T-Shirt under their officially sanctioned outer-shirt. Maybe Jane has some sort of chest hair kink?
 

Perhaps chest hair gets her all “wound up and flustered. ” Does she get all Lust-filled if she  sees little curly chest hairs sneaking out of men’s tops. 

I think it’s because the cult leader is a woman. The other female cult leader we talk about on FJ is Gwen. And she has a lot of clothing requirements as well. She makes everyone wear certain colors to events. No matter their age, sex, or finances. All men in the cult likely own a tuxedo because they are forced to dress in black tie for so many events.

Yeah , most other cult leaders have been men . Even the vast majority of church heads in general have been male .  At least that's one glass ceiling that is slowly breaking , I suppose .

Cheerwine is a local NC soft drink! It's regionally well known but expanding slowly I think. It's black cherry and very bubbly. I personally don't love it, but many people do. 

(Another regional drink is Sun Drop. Have you ever had it? Like Mountain Dew but better, IMO, but has a lot of caffeine in it, as the rumor goes. Often made at diner-style places into a cherry-lemon Sun Drop drink.)

I’ve seen Sun Drop at our local Walmart(Upstate New York).

ok folks 

this shit is going on "right yonder down the mountain" from me.  I remember hearing about it, but they must be veerrryyyy secretive now.  It doesn't surprise me that some cult members are part law enforcement- It also doesn't surprise me that this  Jane person is getting away with this horror. This is the bible belt, and fundamentals and extremists thrive here. 

I'm tempted to go to a service to see how they treat a  newcomer.  I do, however, have a healthy fear of that environment. I'm still, 20 years later,  recovering from an abusive relationship with a religious zealot and there are still triggers.   I really think these people are in a religious psychosis of some sort..

Now, if Bro Gary comes to these here parts, you betcha I'm going to THAT service!

Don't.  I just started reading the book today but they said that you just can't drop in.  You have to be invited by a member and they guard the road to the entryway.

They believe that there are evil demons around us and they cause us to sin.  If you see someone sinning and don't try to stop it or tell people about it, they think you're guilty of that same sin as well.  That explains how they trained everyone to snitch.  Also, Jane Whaley made them turn off their televisions around the time that Inside Edition did an expose.  She was afraid people would find out the truth so that's where that rule came from

It's an interesting read.  I'll update when I'm deeper into it.

OK, thanks! So isolation is one her weapons. Makes perfect sense to me!!

I was just going to ask what this "don't" was  :" 28.Don’t park in the first spot along the front sidewalk. That is reserved for those on watch". but I think you just answered it for me!  I was wondering what the heck being "on watch" was...who are they watching for? But I guess it's any outsider...

@Xan is the book good? I’m tempted to read it but it’s a bit pricey.

I'm not that far into it yet.  So far it's an interesting read but I'm a sucker for books about cults and about fundies in general.  Let me get to about the halfway point and I'll let you know if it was worth what I paid.

I’d say we should include Jill Rodrigues, but she’d be afraid of smudging her eyeliner.
