    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    That was my thought as well...because Dreck is such a clever, slippery hotshot lawyer dontchaknow...
  2. Surely you're not comparing a beautifully pregnant young woman in very standard beachwear to an old guy in a Speedo...? And since you brought up those old guys...old and/or overweight people have every right to enjoy the beach without being body shamed.
  3. With all that name-brand candy, chocolate syrup, and caramel syrup, their version of ice cream cake looks super expensive to me--especially considering how much they would need for their huge extended family. My son always requested a homemade ice cream cake for his birthdays, but my version was two chocolate cake layers with a thick vanilla ice cream layer in the middle. Not expensive at all, and he loved it.
  4. Doofus Jill meant couture. Apparently Chalk Couture is a crafty thing, but I prefer Jill's misspelling because in my mind courture rhymes with torture.

    This is considered content? Kill me now.
  6. That's funny...I feel the same way about "makes me stabby." 😉
  7. Sorry I had missed that!
  8. Isn't Anna's hashtag a ripoff of the one Kendra has used since the birth of their baby?
  9. I've been really surprised to see both Lauren and Jill use the hashtag #angelbabies in response to Joy's tragic stillbirth. To me that term conjures the image of a child who has died and become an angel, and that concept is most decidedly counter to Evangelical theology. Angels in scripture are created beings, not dead people. I'm guessing "angel baby" is a popular term among parents who've lost a young child, and of course it is completely harmless and may provide comfort for those in that awful situation...but as narrow and uptight as the Duggars are about their faith and lifestyle, it surprises me that they'd use language that perpetuates what they probably consider an unbiblical teaching.

    Hilarious line, except I'm quite certain the Dullards don't consider marriage a sacrament.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    Black-eyed peas is my best guess!

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Ugh, I am so sick of parents dressing babies in age-inappropriate clothing and accessories just to feed their own egos. I actually like that style of headband when worn by someone with, you know, some hair to be held back. On Felicity it looks a little silly, and I'm also guessing that it falls off regularly and has to be put back on throughout the day because God forbid she not be perfectly accessorized at all times. As for her little outfit, I'd like it if not for those bell sleeves, which seem too long and cumbersome for such a small child. She should be free to explore her environment without her fussy clothes getting in the way. She's a kid, not a prop. I know they love her, but I think they forget that.

    Thanks for the historical perspective. We found the PCUSA by Googling "gay-affirming churches in my area." It's not that that's the only issue we care about, but we thought it'd serve as a decent litmus test for more progressive churches. We live in a smallish city in the deep south, so it was mighty slim pickings.

    That's interesting. In my experience, though, modern Baptists are far more Puritanical than he Presbyterians I've been worshiping with of late.
