Maybe Jill is grifting for an engagement ring for Nurie so she (Jill) can show it off during the announcement. All about Jill all the time is default for this group.

I’m sure Jill is hoping for a rock the size of Gibraltar for Nurie. Which Nurie will then trade for her mama’s ring, the way we’ll trainef girls do. And our Jill will be so shocked and awed when Nurie makes this request. And “Nurie” will claim online that she did this because her parents have the most loving and awesome marriage in the history of marriage, and she hopes by wearing her mana’s ring that that will make her marriage halfway as awesome.

Jill upgraded her own rock a couple of years ago. Of course it's CZ, no way she could afford the real deal.

Sorry, but I so DO NOT believe he is an OFFICIAL PILOT for, you know, Jesus. I do not think he worked LONG HARD hours. I would not trust him to deliver a PIZZA to me.

@GeeGolly, I'm afraid St. Joesph of Cupertino works for a different God than the one the Rodriguii believe in.  /s

I won't fly in small aircraft. I don't even fly on regional commercial airlines if I can help it. I watch Air Disasters faithfully, so I know hundreds of ways a plane can be in trouble. 

Doesn't Timothy have to take some regular community college courses now as well, in science, and writing, and stuff? That might end up a bigger challenge than getting up in the air and back down in one piece.

So they basically grifted Tim's flight instruction. I was hoping he paid the guy *something* but then I realized he needed a job just for rent, food, gas, etc.

That is, unless he lived with his instructor, and he covered rent and food.

This segment of society has an economy separate from the rest of us. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if the instructor was a fundy and saw it as an honor or responsibility to train a Gothardist. I also wouldn't be surprised if Tim had to provide work for the guy i.e household maintenance and the like.

Someone gave me a free lesson in a Cessna for a Christmas present once. I didn’t get to touch the throttle, but I got to take off, do rolls etc. I could’ve landed but I declined due to my vomit. I sat in the left seat, and I didn’t have to do any form of education. That picture proves nothing!

And no way Nurie isn't going to expect a ton of wedding gifts,and a big,paid for wedding,from someone other than her parents.And she will probably get it.

It would be interesting to see the tracts.I'm guessing they were more a grifting opportunity than anything else.Please support our ministry!

Are the Rods Gothardist? I've never seen any evidence of a direct connection to the Gothard organization. They're just straight up IFB with a heaping side of crazy and lazy.

 I know there such a thing as wedding crashers, but is there such a thing as wedding hijacking? They may just wait till the next high profile fundie wedding,  stash the bride and groom in a closet somewhere, and substitute in Nurie.

I'm not so sure that's true. Just because Jill and David don't have money, doesn't mean all of their friends are as poor as they are. Since Nurie is marrying Anna's brother-in-law, I'm sure the Duggars will send something. (They have donated to the Rods go fund me pages in the past.)

Also weddings present opportunities for fundies to network and meet other fundies, so the price of a gift and travel may be worth it to them.

Jill's grifting opportunities will definitely go up with a Duggar connection.The first invites will go to the whole Duggar clan.

I think only the female is allowed to cancel the courtship.But no way would Nurie be able to get out of this now,even if she wanted to.Mama said so!

Now, to get any sort of commercial license, which I presume he needs to drop leaflets on unsuspecting heathens, he will need 250 hours as a minimum.  I would hope Wisconsin pilot guy isn't dumb enough to provide him with that much time for free.

If he drops any leaflets on me, I'll correct all the spelling and grammatical errors, and send them back with a copy of The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. After we snark on them.

True, but the Kellers also have a couple of kids who've managed to break away from the cult.  I agree that Ma and Pa Keller don't care that the Rodriguii are lazy grifters, they just care about the fundie veneer they show to the world.  I'm just kinda hoping that Nathan. now that he's gotten a taste of the extra special brand of crazy that Nurie's family brings to the table; has been awakened from his cult coma and is ready to make a break for it and get as much distance between himself and that ship of fools as possible.

Here's hoping he takes Nurie with him.  She gets the best of both worlds--out of the cult but she is following her headship so her siblings don't have to disown her.

I’m doubting it. With the opportunity to finally get laid in his near future, I doubt either will back out now. Regrets will come later, a la the Dullards.

Yes, Jill doesn't understand school, as we've all seen amply; so she'll take any embarrassingly foolish chance to say "See!  See!  He didn't need seven years of schooling after all!"; because to Jill, it's the same thing.  I'm surprised she didn't hashtag Moody Aviation on that post as a nose-thumb.  My therapist has a private pilot's license she earned in high school.  Granted she's a fine therapist, but I don't necessarily think that translates to enormous natural aptitude at flying...

Don't forget, we were recently reminded that Pa Keller said (or it was said about him by a third party), on-camera, that Josh would have him to answer for if he mistreated Anna. 

So, how'd that work out for you, Anna?
