Call me a skeptic, a cynic or a bitch (and you’d be right about all three), but I am not impressed with Jinger orRev. Furkle’s trendy, fake, mainstream facade. They still have abhorrent beliefs about class, race, gender, and obviously politics judging by the people Jeremy follows and the documents he co-signs. They may not be as extreme as Derick, or as openly looney tunes as say the Rodrigues clan, but birds of a feather. As a minority woman, a Christian and a human being I can’t get behind anyone against social justice in today’s society. I just find that inhumane, cruel and not Christ-like at all. Jesus, the real Jesus of the bible, not the Gothard and MacArthur cult-like or prosperity preaching Jesus of today, loved everyone and spoke against injustice, including social injustice (see the many sermons, parables and bible verses on hospitality, caring for the poor and downtrodden, protecting children, forgiveness, feeding the hungry, and accepting people of all faiths and colors).
I also have no hope for Felicity being allowed to pursue education or a career. I could be wrong, and I hope I am, but just because Furkle’s mom and sister have educations doesn’t mean he’s okay with it. His beliefs may be more extreme than that. Sometimes you pattern your life after your parents, and sometimes you go in the opposite direction of things you didn’t like.
I don’t think anyone is off base, and I’m not attacking anyone’s opinion, but like a few posters said, that shiny, attractive exterior hides an ugly core of beliefs. I’ll get off my soap box now, but some days these folks just really annoy me.
