THE SQUICKYNESS OF IT ALL! - Creepy Behavior in Church

Reading the current Botkins thread made me remember this!

Last Sunday my usual church wasn't having evening services, so I went to the fundie church down the road, m ostly (I admit) to catch up with my friends that go there.

Well, the church was amazingly crowded, so I had to sit in the back. In front of me, was a boy who looked about 17, and his mom and dad. When I first noticed them, the dad and son each had an arm around mom's shoulders. That was fine... until the son started playing with his dads ear. I watched in fascination for a moment. He stopped, and Dad started playing with his sons suspender straps and rubbing his back. I tried to tell myself that this was nothing wierd... but I could not convince myself.

Dad and son stopped for a little bit... but then Son started playing with his moms hair. Then he started rubbing on her side. She leaned on his shoulder for a little bit.

There was a lot more and it was totally squicky... and I just stared in horrid fascination. Then I noticed with mom and son were going at it, Dad was mad. When son and dad were being super lovable, mom was mad. Mom and Dad made son mad. A few times I saw Son give them looks that can only be described as lewd.

I remember watching this and thinking "I finally understand the term squicky... and I have to tell the Free Jinger girls"

Maybe I'll go again sometime and film it... it was pretty wierd. This went beyond normal family love. (And for the record, there was no denying that boy was their son, he looked JUST like them)

ewewewewew. Just... ew. I've seen that kind of thing at my parent's old fundie church, but not with mother/father/son trio. Usually it was husband/wife and it was kind of squicky in the way they did it.... I think it must be a fundie/patriarchy thing? the most my hubby does with me is just rest his arm on the pew and let me lean on him. That's what I view as the norm or average, especially at the Anglican church, where I don't really see a lot of touchy stuff going on. *(shrugs)*

Ewwww, just ewwww. I never saw that go on in my old fundie church, but I've seen some parent/child displays that struck me as...erm..odd like that before.

Freaky. I'm a Lutheran and about the most touching you see is a husband with an arm up on the pew around his wife, and spouses hugging or parents hugging kids during the sharing of the peace. Small children tend to sit on a parent's lap but we're not touchy-feely during a service beyond normal and appropriate familial expressions of affection.

Eww so creepy, so creepy. During the peace, back in the day when I went to church, sometimes I would kiss or hug people I knew, especially the little old ladies who brought me candies and stuff. It wasn't like a kiss, kiss but just a peck or the kind of kiss where you hug a person and kiss their cheek. But this is nothing like that. Uber creepy. Like just *shudder*. I hope the young man had some kind of disorder to explain this instead, maybe a compulsion or tick or something to explain it. Just ew,

You're right - this is the very definition of squick! I'm sure there's some kind of explenation - after all, don't people who molest at least try to keep it under wraps? - but I can't for the life of me think what that explenation is.

There was this adult son and father who worked at a bar I used to go to. I was mortified when the son would be asking me what drink I wanted and the father would walk over, stand behind his son and begin rubbing his son's sides up and down with his hands. The son would be standing there saying: "Okay--what do you want??" and I can't answer because I can't stop staring at his father's hands. I'm thinking: "WTF? You don't notice that your father is (slowly) running his hands up and down your rib-cage??" If I had to guess, I would say the son was 25 and the father was 45. It was beyond bizarre. It was definitely something more in the boyfriend/girlfriend category of behavior. And, beyond a doubt, it was his father because they looked exactly alike (only one older looking and one younger). Plus, they told me they were father and son.

Ewwwww, I thought my mother's relationship with my brother was disturbing (and it is--but not like this)! What. The. Fuck!?

I don't even like it when my mom touches my hair. :snooty:

EWWWW! :o

Though I also briefly wondered if he could have had some sort of disability and needed more physical contact. Maybe...?

I wanted to ask what the hell they were doing... but I was kinda afraid to. I really hope I never see that again.

      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

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      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!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
