Interesting outcome.  SBC voters: "Oh hell to the no on reich wing ultra conservatives." 

Also "yes, we *will* take sexual abuse seriously and any of you who don't want to do not have public support."

R.L. Stollar follows up with an article containing interviews with women who grew up under Voddie's teachings:

Quote

 

Mr. Baucham was an anomaly in fundamentalist leadership as a black man, because the US Southern Reformed Church has a significant racism issue, which stems from being built around the white supremacist teachings of Rushdoony. (What a surprise!! How could that happen??) Because of this, Mr. Baucham was fetishized and held up as an example of “one of the good ones” and he built a brand around Black Fatherhood and Conservative Fatherhood being “the only way to fix America.”...

Vision Forum also recommended young marriage for female teens raised in the movement, and I remember talking with my father about arranging a marriage for me when I was approximately 15 or 16. These arrangements were with specific older men within our religious group—one was 26 and the other 32. Neither ended up being successfully arranged, and my parents told me it was because I didn’t have a “quiet spirit” that nobody wanted me as a wife.

This is horrifying -- young girls were married off to creepers.  Yuck. It makes me ill thinking about it.

I just think he wants to stand out even more than he already does. Many of the men around him are clean shaven or have trimmed beards. And he really does stand out in pictures surrounded by all these clean shaven white guys. I’m sure everyone remembers him. Like everyone remembers Gwen Shamblin’s hair.

This echoes the experience of many of my friends.

Beards have been strongly encouraged since VF days by the far in wackos.  Calling it a patriarch beard may have been intended as snark but that literally is what it was intended to symbolize for many of them.  A beard is a symbol of manliness and masculinity and the bigger the beard, the more masculine the man.

I didn't know that about the fundies -- but it has so much sense now that I think of the numbers of fundies with "patriarch" beards.

IMHO I think they look ridiculous

Don't forget Duck Dynasty also started the beard trend among conservative men🙄

Those folks seem to have faded into oblivion, thankfully. 

I'm sure the old man is still making the church rounds promoting marrying teen girls and hating "the gays." 

I just googled to see what they're up to. Phil and Duck Dynasty got shown the door in 2017 over Phil's homophobic rant during a GQ interview. I didn't realize that the show was on for 11 years. I'd guess by now all the sons have shaved their beards and gone back to the clean cut preppy look they rocked before the show began.  They do have a podcast. 

In a "what the duck" moment recently, a woman came forward and said she was Phil's daughter, and she is.  She found out inadvertently through a DNA site when she discovered that she had a different father than her siblings. 

Phil and "Miss Kay" would have been married for about 10 or 11 years when the daughter was conceived, just before Phil was saved! The daughter is 45-ish now and has been welcomed into the family.  Two People Magazine articles quoted Phil and one of the sons on how great it was to find a "long lost" daughter/sister respectively.  Seemingly, no one asked "Miss Kay" what she thought.

Black men have a higher incidence of ingrown facial hairs, so a lot of them have beards to avoid the pain that shaving every day causes.

Yeahbut (speaking as someone who has a beard for similiar reasons) that means you have a beard.  That doesn’t dictate the form of your beard.

I suppose I was responding more to the comparisons between him and cleanshaven white guys rather than the style of the beard.

True. His very long beard makes him stand out. I’ve seen plenty of men with short very nicely trimmed and edged beard. I personally think Voddie wants to stand out in the crowd.

Linking to the full interviews with former SAHD who ensued Voddie’s teaching. Worthwhile read and horrific reminder of his abusive teaching. Also appreciated Katherine pointed out that: “He rose to “fame” by partnering with Doug Wilson and Doug Phillips (the former being exposed as an enabler of sexual abuse and the latter as a perpetrator of it). His other doctrines were considered heresy when they were first espoused by Rushdoony as “Christian Reconstructionism.”

Also: merch table at Voddie’s church sold leather spanking straps that were normalized. 🤬

Oh yeah, it's largely affect. Goes with "Husband, Father, Pastor" in the bio.

People were upset about his marrying off teen girls comments and homophobe shit, but Phil should have gotten a lot more crap about his racist comments. He said black people were happier before civil rights (link).

Thanks for the update. 

The Robertsons are/were fundie-lite.

      The Berries were born in Highland Park Hospital. We went to the 4th of July Parade every year until we moved here. I’ve been crying all day. This is horrible. We are just waiting for a list of victims to make sure none of our old friends from those days were hurt. I HATE this.

      Already after the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, I was already NOT feeling 4th of July and felt it was ridiculous to celebrate. Now a mass shooting at a parade in a town nearby. Multiple fatalities. Everyone has to shelter in place in their homes, can't go outside, because shooter is still on the loose. Nearby towns canceling their celebrations due to public safety concerns. Wow guys, how free we are! What a great country we live in! Aren't you grateful for all this freedom?! /s
      The usa, what a fucking joke.

      Had some bad news out of Dubuque today - 3 teenagers were killed in a one car accident where the driver had been speeding and flipped his car. 
      I feel so sorry for their families and friends now.  It also brought back painful memories for me and some of my classmates because my junior year of high school three of our classmates were killed in an accident as well.   One I had known since elementary school.

      Hey FJers, long time. Sorry I've not posted in like forever - life just sometimes gets in the way.
      During the lockdown, I did various temporary jobs (shelf stacking in Wilko, and also working from home doing call centre type stuff, including Test and Trace) but hope to go busking soon. I need to practise my set as my guitar/singing has got a bit rusty!
      Since I last posted, I have become a cat mum! My housemate with Lilith had to move abroad and wasn't able to take her with him, so I inherited her. She'll be two in August but still looks and acts like a kitten. I love her more than life itself.

      Sooo. I turned down the new job, realized I've been scammed.
       
      Also today I'm 26 and drunk right now. My amazing husband took me to Chicago to a rooftop bar and I'm so glad my mom is here to babysit and I pumped enough to last her a few days

      With the fall of Roe v. Wade, now would be a great time to start taxing religious institutions so we can increase funding for women's and children's health and education services.  Males 18-25 still have to register for Selective Service; how about adding a DNA database to that requirement to help track down impregnators and hold them responsible for their part?
