I'm wondering what the fundies in Big Sandy will think about Boob and Meech now. Sympathy?

I saw today Gabby dropped out of performing at the CMT Awards tomorrow night due to “personal circumstances”. I hope the circumstance isn’t Punchable Aunt Cade pitching a fit because he’s the spouse of a star.

Fill me in? The only part of that I know is the CMTs.

Yes, I’m so curious. I suspect they’ll still be embraced as paragons of parenting and do their speaking engagements on how successful they’ve been.

Quite possible. Or be met with oh, don't blame yourself for Josh.

Perhaps that thought will help Anna should a guilty verdict happen. That way she can separate the crime from the man she loves. Vomit.

Yup. They probably don't see how Boobchelle's handling of the early problems could have contributed to what Smuggar became as an adult.

If Josh is put away for over a decade will Anna remarry? Hey, Boob. Want more TLC money? Wedding special! Anna and new man. Then her blessing canal will remain in business.

Anna won't leave. She's got a built-in support system where she's at. Boob will feed his grandkids, but all bets are off if Anna divorces the former Golden Boy.

Anna divorcing Josh would also be an admission that all the years she has continued to defend him and pass him off as a wonderful husband, father, and person was her being wrong. I don't think she can admit that to herself, let alone the world at large.

Oh I don't think she is either. I don't think she has ever had this conversation with herself. But I think she instinctively realizes that she has been made to look like an absolute fool, but she would rather double-down than admit that maybe she was wrong.

And M will flip out if Kendra reaches 20 babies.No one outdoes them.LOL

I don’t know if I can add a whole lot more…usually this would be CMA Fest in Nashville. It’s been canceled the last two years because of the pandemic, but it’s normally a huge deal with a lot of events & tourists. The CMT Awards are scheduled for the middle of this week. Gabby was slated to perform with Lady A and another person. She released a statement yesterday that she was dropping out due to personal circumstances, hoped to see her fans this summer.

Gabby won an award at the ACMs several weeks ago, and PAC made a post pointing out she was “Mrs. Foehner”. So there has been speculation he isn’t handling being in her shadow very well.

Boob could get her divorced from Josh and have her marry one of the other Duggars.  It worked with Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, but not really well.  Anyway I can't see TLC being able to pass that kind of insanity up.

Thanks for the info, but my question was more about Gabby. I have no idea who that is or her husband, or PAC. 

I do know about Lady A and the controversy about the name. I do not have a high opinion of them.

I just watched an IG Story from Alyssa Bates. The content wasn't what stuck out to me, it was the creating of the story that got me. Alyssa was kneeling on the floor by her bed. Behind her phone was her infant daughter. Off camera Alyssa was holding a bottle in her daughter's mouth. So Alyssa spent the next few minutes answering strangers questions while basically ignoring her daughter who was inches away.

This influencing shit is freaking crazy. Oh and BTW, Alyssa said they'll probably have more kids.

They'll absolutely have more kids! 1. Attention. 2. They'll have to try for a boy. 3. Then the boy, if they get one, will need a brother. 4. More attention. 

The Bateseses are as gross as the Duggars.

There is a wisdom booklet out there somewhere that has a timeline of Christianity from Jesus to Martin Luther that explains how Christianity existed outside the Catholic church.  It is also batshit insane.  Some fundies cannot handle the thought that the Roman Catholic Church was the Christian Church from Peter to 1517.  This timeline includes many French and English sects that existed in that time period and all of them were somehow the "true church" that the RCC persecuted.  Think Cathars and Lollards.

I wish I had saved it.  This was something I found online.  I cannot remember if it was on the old TWOP boards or on Patheos.  

Uuumm, Eastern Orthodoxy and the Roman Catholic Church split in 1054, so the Roman Catholic Church was not the only game in town after that point

However, even among the Protestant faiths, these evangelicals and Baptists are fairly new.

Back to the topic at hand - I don't understand what the end game is for these people to have so many unemployable adults. There is no pride in watching their children become independent and successful

I doubt the Duggars and their like consider those of the Eastern Rite Orthodox faith to be Christians either.  It's just that they don't know enough of them to announce it to the world.  Roman Catholicism is the most common single denomination in the US, so they're the ones the fundies target.

I am completely aware of the Orthodox church.  In fact, I was baptized and confirmed in one.  But, it's a different religious tradition and really does not intersect with the faith of the fundies we snark on here.  The Orthodox faith is Eastern Europe and Greece, the fundies here come from Western European stock.  Their church history is completely based on Western European countries like England and France with a bit of Germany and Switzerland.

Oh, sorry. Gabby Barrett and her husband, Punchable Aunt Cade Foehner (PAC) are friends of Jeremy & Jinger. There’s pictures posted of them on that thread every so often. Gabby placed third on American Idol and is a rising country star. Cade was also on Idol, didn’t do as well, career is not hot.

I doubt that would happen. They believe its Anna's fault that Josh stayed, so why would they want that for another of their sons?

I was pretty much joking, but if Boob thought it would bring him more TLC money and fame, I could see him doing it.  He's never cared about the needs of his children of his love of money.

It boggles my mind that they would believe it was Anna’s fault that Josh is very probably a pedophile with sadistic tendencies.* Deep, deep down they have to realize that the only constants in all of the episodes of Josh’s sexual deviance or even inappropriateness (Ashley Madison) is Josh, and to a lesser extent, them. While I do put all the blame squarely on Josh’s shoulders for his “behavior,” I do think there is something in his upbringing by them that contributed to his actions. I have wondered if all of the punishments (physical and psychological) that he received around both normal teenage boy behavior and the more serious molestations indelibly linked risk and physical pain  to sexual pleasure, to the point that he had to escalate both the risk and pain to be fulfilled. 

(*My degrees in psychiatry and law are from Hudson University**, so make of that what you will) 

(**Hudson University is often mentioned on Law & Order, usually in the context of a crime being committed there, or a student being arrested for a crime. The school motto is “Not Dead or a Criminal”)

My other thought is that they will freeze some of Josh's swimmers if he gets sent off to prison for many years.Then Anna will unthaw and self inseminate at home.No IVF needed. Of course this requires Josh to have swimmers that can survive freezing.Not all men do.

I know fundies don't approve of non sexual methods of having babies,but desperate times call for desperate measures? Anna came from a family of 8 kids,so I think she'll want at least 8 of her own.And she'll be one short if when Josh goes off to prison

If the trial is delayed enough, they could make one more baby after this one is born. And I think they would be just stupid enough to do it.
