  1. For some reason, I thought Kaylee had already graduated and it was Renee that Jill was trying to sell off in her graduation post.
  2. Nurie and Kaylee could have big double wedding, the Duggars would be invited, and maybe JillR could have her heart's desire by snagging a Duggar boy for the 18-year-old she was trying to sell off earlier.
  3. I think her house looks functional for a family with two toddlers and a baby on the way. I've never used extra lamps if the room had ceiling lights and I don't have art on my walls. Although that's because I'm renting and I don't want to deal with nail holes or Command hooks.

    I think hatred of lgbtq will be a harder hill to mount than abortion. I know a lot of anti-abortion Christians who have no problems with the lgbtq community. These days most families have a beloved family member who is out and they realize that love is love and people are people. Abortion is an easy one to oppose because "Murdering Babies!" I think if it became illegal, hard-core Christians would move on to further demonize birth control, women's health clinics, and illegitimate births.
  5. How sinful can Nurie's life be? She's not allowed to ever go out and do anything without an accountability tattletale sibling. I'm willing to bet that the things she is worrying her soul over are things the rest of us wouldn't think twice about.

    My mom used to make something like this in the 70s. Leftover chopped chicken, a can of cr of chicken soup, 1/2 can of milk, a bag of frozen mixed veggies, and cooked egg noodles, mixed together and put in a casserole dish. Ritz crackers were crushed and mixed with melted butter, then spread on top. It was baked at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Her tuna noodle casserole was the same recipe, but with tuna fish & cr of celery soup. I'm guessing it tasted okay, but I was raised to eat what you were served or else, so I don't have a very refined palate.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    The news has stated that pretty much none of the kids involved knew what their parents were doing. Which means they and the rest of the world have learned that their parents don't think they're smart enough to get into a "good" university/college on their own merits. I don't generally feel sorry for rich, entitled kids, but that has to be pretty dang embarrassing.

    I have hard time believing this happened when Jill said it was bedtime. It was probably the reason she said it was bedtime, but I'm pretty sure those two little boys have been beaten disciplined into near-instant obedience.
  9. I'm voting for "Mama sees what Mama wants to see". I don't think she's ever taken off her rose-colored glasses when it comes to Josh. As for "energy-giver", I've officially been away from Evangelical churches for so long that I don't recognize all of the evangicalese they're spouting these days.

    Bring your wife to class is the weirdest thing I've seen in a long time. I've been attending classes and/or working in a state college for 12 years. I've seen parents bring kids to class when their babysitting has fallen through, but I've never seen anyone bring their spouse to class. When spouses have come to school with a student, they hang out in the hall, library, or cafeteria during classes.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Are you on Facebook? When my grandson was young I was on a Facebook buy & sell list for baby and children's items. It wasn't unusual for people to post items for free.

    I believe the niece or aunt placed Tyler with them and gave them uncontested guardianship. As long as nobody complained, the judge will sign off.
  13. The molestation was years ago and Josh had already repented and been forgiven. As far as they were concerned, it was over. Plus, it was partially the victims' fault for not being modest enough, Josh was young, it happens in a lot of families, the girls don't even remember it, and they dealt with it. The Ashley Madison scandal was worse because Josh was an adult and he sought out sin. There wasn't anyone else to blame but Josh, which made it even worse because then it reflected on the whole Duggar brand. To Evangelical Christians, repenting and being forgiven means that whatever you have done has been washed away. After all, if God/Jesus has forgiven him, who are we to continue to condemn him? Even now, I'm sure they feel like Josh has been to Jesus Jail, his wife has forgiven him, so why can't he slide back into his place on TLC?

    The whole catfishing thing was so toxic for the family, then to bring it up during filming a year ago, and now it airs and is brought up again. TLC is making sure nobody ever forgets what happened.
