A lot.  If I had to live with someone who hated everything, I would have killed him already.  Or left.  "Good morning honey, how are you today?"  "It's cloudy out.  I hate clouds."  "Do you want to see a concert tonight?"  "I hate concerts."  "Do you want bacon and eggs?"  "I hate bacon.  I hate eggs"  "Do you want to take a walk?"  "Not if I have to walk by anyone.  I hate people."  

Genuinely not enjoying something is one thing, but possibly liking it and denying yourself is worse in my opinion.

People having dislikes doesn't bother me so much, but people constantly going on and on about why they won't eat/do something they'd actually enjoy enrages me for some reason.

He doesn’t believe in liking things. Pleasure of any kind he views as Satan at work—which strikes  this heathen as pretty unbiblical.  Aren’t we supposed to take pleasure in creation? Or are we just required to sort of admire it from a distance?

On another note, in a new episode of Mr Miserable Hates Everything, Steve hates fishing.

This may be one of the most revealing things about Stevehovah ever -- what a pinched, tight little man.  He obviously has no interest in making and having male friends and fishing doesn't involve controlling other people so it seems superfluous to Steve.

In the space of a year or so the daughters are thriving in their independent lives far away from Steve's suffocating prison of belief and now it's just Steve and Teri...and the cat.  And Teri is involved with the church and I'll hazard a guess, thriving because she can interact with other humans who aren't Steve.

He created a world that revolved around totally controlling his wife and daughters, God bothering his fellow humans and hectoring men on his blog.  I wonder if Steve showed up at the church and the men there were not interesting in being hectored in person by Steve. He seems...bitter.

He gave up marathon running too, and the “children” only ran their own family Turkey Trot, not even an organized 5K until they left home.

This. If Steve were Catholic he'd have to be in Opus Dei, indulging himself in mortification of the flesh, probably with a cilice of some sort.

Or, he should have been born a Puritan in the 1630s in Plymouth Colony, happily condemning women as witches and refusing to celebrate holidays.

Another lovely photo of Mary from ABCs fb. The girls are clearly very involved in college life. Good for them. 6D2DD039-51C2-4541-9E06-6DC699C0AB4A.thumb.jpeg.0d6ab2fbc6f457049ba77029261838b9.jpeg

If you're looking for a subsitute for the Maxwell blog, you could try reading Kami Gimenez's blog: a day in the life of a missionary wife. Gentle like the Maxwells with a lot to snark on. Like a previous post where Kami talked she, her husband, and her daughter's fiance decided her daughter should finish college after marriage. Or the most recent post.

My kids love field trips.  And I love it when they come across things that they have been learning and it sort of cements it in their heads.  We found some of that at the Florida Museum of Natural History.

It's cool that they got to go there, but....

Quote

Micah, especially, loved seeing the different dinosaur artifacts.  His Paleontology class is bringing dinosaurs alive for him, so he was thrilled to see the skeletons....until he read the description.  He was shocked at how much isn't true and how much is presented as fact.  It's so sad to see that evolution isn't being taught for what it is, a theory.  It takes even more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in creation.  Yet, it is presented to our children as factual.  It goes completely against the Bible and the fact that God made us.  It was good for Micah, and me, to go through the Museum with this on our hearts.  Instead of looking at everything through the belief system of evolution, we chose to look at it through the Bible.  As Micah shared what he's been learning, he taught me so much!  As we looked at all the artifacts, I found myself singing, "God made it all!!"  How can you look at the awesomeness and particulars of each animal, whether extinct or still alive today, and not believe that we have an awesome Creator God!  He's so amazing!!

Here’s another picture of Mary at this event. My guess is that they were having a Bible quiz game between students and staff. And whoops, staff must’ve won:

I was thinking one of those pinchy things might be more discreet. But This is Steve We're Talking About. It is true, though, that you can buy anything on the internet, even hair shirts and other instruments of corporal mortification.

Fundies keep using that word "Theory".

There's not a lot of daylight between Mary and the young man holding the mic. Did poor Samuel get dumped?

No, I think he’s just on her team. And now that her father isn’t constantly watching, she’s probably not afraid of standing close to males.

In the first photo posted, Mary really favors Sarah!

I thought the same thing, and I’d never thought it before. It’s amazing how different they look when they aren’t aggressively beaming at their sister.

A website for Opus Dei, I think. Now, think about people like Samuel Alito and Newt Gingrich using those items.

Not kidding. OD is one powerful group in Washington DC

Christ on a cracker (pun intended). I thought the Silas character in The DaVinci Code was an exaggeration.  You can *buy those fucking things on the internet*?!? 😱

First thing I thought of. I knew those things existed in the Middle Ages, but NOW??? Holy shit. Well, I'm not too shocked over the scourges, although they're bizarre enough, but anything with little spikey things on them is on a whole different level of religious insanity.😵

Too much spandex in running. I'm sure organized running about did him in.

I’m inclined to think that for at least some people, the appeal of those spiky cilice things and the whips, etc, are because they are satisfying the part of them that, we’re they other people, would be satisfied by participating in BDSM scenes or in consuming porn about them. Kink it out all you want, if you don’t harm people who don’t consent, or children, I don’t care what you do. But it must be hard to have unfamiliar urges and feelings and not know what it means or how to process it. (I’m not saying that all people who do the hair shirt/spiky thing on their leg would be equally satisfied by BDSM practices, but some might find satisfaction in them.)

      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.

      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 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.
