Maxwells Extreme Even by Conservative Christian Standards

Recommended Posts

I found this thread a few months back on the Well-Trained Mind forums.

 

Some FJers were mentioning today on another thread that the Maxwells are extreme even compared to some of the "out there" fundies we talk about here.

 

It seems the very conservative women on the Well-Trained Mind forums agree!

 

An interesting read;

That is an interesting read. In my years on the fundie-farm, I saw people who were somewhat on the order of the VF crowd, but I've never seen anything like the Maxwells. I hadn't heard of them before starting to lurk at the old board, but as I read about them, it really seems like there's an element of mental illness mixed with the conservative religious philosophy.

They believe things like ATI and VF promote mixing and take away from God by allowing their followers options for recreation and fun-every single damn thing and idea and activity must be kept within the family alone for true Christianity to occur is what they believe in a nut shell.

And they are missing the real meaning of joy by doing so.

Ditto here when I was homeschooling. But then, I think people who have the Maxwells' attitude are not coming to co-ops, etc.

Thanks for the link.

Very interesting read, and very believable - people who've met or seen them over the years see the isolationism increasing. They also see it for the unhealthy practice that it is.

I wonder if any of these homeschoolers have reached out to the Maxwells in some way? I don't know if they would be receptive to help from others-- and I am talking about other conservative Christians here-- but it might be worth a try.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
