Maybe he'll use the tin cup to beg for spare change on the corner.

Oh wait, that's way more effort than he'd ever be willing to put in.

I hope David really is fixing the home kid warehouse between meals and snacks. That's physical labor, after all, and David could use the exercise.

Send one of the female waifs out. Better for business that way.

I can't tell if Jill has dollar store press on glitter nails and polish, or expensive manicures.  But she sure does change her polish often considering she ought to be unpacking her horde of nicknacks.

Tessie is beautiful.  It’s a crying shame that JRod will have her painted up like a $2 hooker by the time she’s 16.  Oh how I wish that I could adopt her and give her the chance to have a great life/future. 😢

Jill has once again used a crazy amount of filters on that pic, so there's no telling what she and Tessie really look like. They are practically glowing and Jill has used some filter to brighten the whites of her eyes and her teeth.

Tessie is definitely the prettiest of the daughters.  Her eyebrows are nice and normal looking too.  Tessie - fight against the gaudy make up and the draw on eyebrows!

She does, but Jill is quick to point out their darkness comes from David's PORTUGUESE heritage, NOT MEXICAN heritage!

At least there's no ambiguity in my Portuguese family name. It's the same in Portuguese as Hispanic.

I thought the "dark" child was Hannah? (She's the next one down, and also really cute in a way that most of the Rodlets just...aren't.)

I tried to check this on the Rod family page (as in, compare their photos and see if I was remembering correctly which kid is which), but all the photos on the "Our Children" page show broken links except for Janessa's...

Spain and Portugal are side by side.When I had my ethnicity done,it came out that way,as Iberian Peninsula,or Spain/Portugal.There was no difference.They must be closely genetically related,and I think Hispanics,or what we would consider Mexican,are a mix of Spanish and American Indian.Someone correct me if I'm wrong,thx

I've gotten alerts when changes (from Iberian for instance) had occurred. They now also nap your ancestors' migration to the US.

^^Do people really read all that Bible word salad stuff? Even the fundies? Or do they just scan through it and nod and think oh what a godly young man?

I gotta admit to feeling cynical as all hell about Bible bashers right now. I've learned that last year when someone I know was seriously ill and incapacitated in the hospital, a relative sat at her bedside, vomited theology all over her, and told her she was going to Hell because she wasn't saved according to his church's prescription. She's NOT a follower of that denomination, BTW.

So, yeah, those people can go fuck themselves.

Phillip/Jill most likely copy pasted that from somewhere.

From the pic of Phillip it seems they may be adding an addition to the new homestead and ala  jill and derick, writing bible verses on the prefinshed construction

I attempted to read the word salad, and it is seriously lacking.  It starts off okay and in the hands of an actual theologian this could be an interesting exploration on what it means to be faithful to god in the small ways.  Unfortunately, this was written by a member of the Rodriguez family and it never takes off.  He (and I do not think Jill wrote this) never gives any specifics and just keeps on repeating the same theme to get his word count.  This reads like the introductory sentences of a 5 paragraph essay before listing the 3 points he wants to make followed immediately by the concluding sentences of the essay.

I felt exhausted just reading it! And I do think these kinds of religious people are exhausted all the time just trying to live up to their legalistic expectations.

Then I saw that cracked 2x4. Who does 2x4 in Ohio? If that’s living space, it’s going to be a bitch to heat.

I'm just going to say that I would be totally creeped out if I rehabbed my home and found Bible verses on the inner walls. I have nothing against Christianity or Christians, but I'm not a huge fan of the Bible. (no offense intended)

But ...

If I did find that scribble on my walls, I would imagine a family just like the Jrods did it.

When I see these drawings and Bible verses inside the walls, I picture a horror movie where a family move into in old abandoned house and do a thorough remodel, and when they tear down the walls they discover the Bible verses. Throughout the movie they learn of the previous owners: a family of overly zealous, patricarchal cult members who beat and starve their children of love, education and food. I'm not sure where I'd have the movie go in the third act... I'll have to think on that one.

Also "Obediant" and "Disobediant" from the same hand. I'm guessing that spelling is not this kid's forte.

To be fair (as much as it pains me), she did spell it correctly earlier in the post. Seems a weird sort of typo to make, though.

A redditor posted a screen shot of the original post. She wrote "on suite" twice in the original and fixed only the first occurrence in the edited post.

I guess the girls are getting a dorm like the Duggars did. Jill and David will probably claim the original bath as their "on suite" so the boys' bath will probably be in the aheer-vee. Does David know anything about plumbing and carpentry? Wonder if he pulled permits for the job (ha, ha). How soon before the pipes freeze or the septic system breaks down? We'll hear about it, of course, when Jill bemoans their misfortune and begs for money. 

Good point, @Giant Misfit. Notes from hostages. This family gets creepier by the minute.

I read the whole thing. I'm an atheist, second generation, so no religious tradition. It all seems really weird. All I'm thinking while reading this is, how do people live this way?
