The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

I don’t think they spend much money on Felicity.  She rarely wears a new outfit or new shoes.  I’m not in any way saying that’s a bad thing.  I personally think it’s ridiculous to buy a lot of new clothes for a child that will outgrow them quickly.  I’m simply making the point that I believe most of their money is spent on Jeremy first, then Jinger, then Felicity gets what’s left.  Of course all of this is just my assumption.

Why do you think her clothes aren’t new? The kid’s wardrobe is better than mine. Those look like primarily designer or at least high-end department store brands. She’s not shlubbing around in Walmart or Old Navy originals like her cousins. Not that there’s anything wrong with that — I love Old Navy — but her clothes don’t look like her parents skimp on them.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Jinger and Jeremy spend very little on clothes for Felictiy because she keeps on getting outfits as gifts.  She is the only grandchild on Jeremy's side and he has sisters.  Between them, I bet Felicity has enough outfits for a month without needing to wear something mom and dad bought.  I have to stop myself from buying clothes for my niece because she does not need them but they are soo cute.

I suggested this some time ago.  Family, friends and fans are clothing her.  It is insane the money fans spend on their reality show favs.

I meant that she doesn’t wear a different outfit in every picture, not that they weren’t bought new.

It appears they take lots of pictures on one day and then post them sporadically over several months. Also, don’t most normal people wear the same clothes more than once? Even celebrities? My LO is Felicity’s age and probably has enough clothes to rotate through over 2 weeks before repeating again.

Looked at the website of one of the G3 sponsors (couldn't resist -- it's called Missional Wear). Anyway, found this --

They also sell, wait for it, a large selection of cigar holders.  (It's a man's man's man's world...) One says "Enjoy Calvinism" on it.

I gather that "The Spurge" was a big cigar smoker. Of course, at the time the news wasn't out about tobacco and cancer...

That would be fabulous for an ugly Christmas sweater party.

Even if you did have to walk around explaining it to everyone.

He has one sister. I doubt his sister buys most of Felicity's clothes.

My brother also has a sister.....and most of my niece’s and nephew’s clothes are from their single, childless aunt.  Sister Vuolo might be more responsible with her spending than my brother’s sister is. 😅😳 

I don’t think his parents and siblings are buying all of her clothes, but it’s certainly possible that they have purchased a large portion of them—especially with her being the only grandchild.

Maybe. I certainly hope Valerie doesn't feel obligated to buy Felicity most of her clothes. I think it's quite sad that single women are expected to buy tons of clothes for their siblings' children. My sibling has no children, but I still wouldn't be buying more than outfit or two a year if that much.

Valerie seems to be living her life. She was visiting recently, but I doubt she sees Jeremy that often. Hopefully JinJer can clothe their own kid.

Felicity's little mary jane moccasins look rather expensive, and she's had at least three pairs. Jinger's not shopping in WalMart anymore.

The Reverend Facy Pants did not post anything on Instagram. He posted on his stories but those pictures disappear after 24 hrs. Very strange that a guy going into ministry avoids posting anything about ministry. Both him and Jinger posted old pictures with the location in LA, nothing from Atlanta.

At this point, I don’t think he has any intention of being a minister. He wants to be famous for being famous. The end.

 I guess it’s possible he’s keeping this ministry shtick on the down low so that it doesn’t hurt his hipster fashion foodie brand and so that he keeps getting the MacArthur freebies and has something to fall back on...

What is he wearing? Did he lose the bottom half of his gangster suit in transit?  The woman on the right looks the best dressed for that occasion.  Jing looks like a flight attendant for long defunct TWA.

Since Jeremy gave a number, something I don't recall him doing in previous years, I assume it's good news for G3.

Well, this crowd rebelled last year when vile John Piper was a speaker. He was deemed "too liberal" for them. He isn't speaking this year.

Lauren has a good sense of style. Very few women actually pull of "fundie chic" the way she does. I don't like her but I do like her fashions. 

Jinger's style isn't bad either. The ones who could really use a "fundie chic makeover" are Jessa and Jill.

The jacket doesn’t fit, either. It’s too small. I think he’s gained some weight from all of those foodie adventures and is too vain (or too poor) to buy new clothes. 

I Googled Allie Stuckey. She’s got the same abhorrent beliefs as the Duggars, but seems to be more vocal about them. And I’m sorry, but that picture makes her look like she’s got a face like a mud rail fence.

I've been wondering when all the eating was going to catch up with him. Once upon a time, I had a good friend who was in a culinary arts program, and she shared most of her homework with me. The semester she was in pastries, my ass expanded at a remarkable pace. 🤣 Between all the burgers, pizzas, ice cream, and doughnuts, I think it's just inevitable that Jeremy gains mass. I'd say he's also probably less physically active than he was.

You are right about Lauren.  She dresses very well.  Jinger is starting to look awfully skinny to me.  Maybe the suit in the picture is too big for her.  Jeremy's clothes are too tight for him (is this the style right now?)??  If his jacket sleeves were just a little shorter and he was sporting a bowtie he would be veering into Pee Wee Herman territory.  The other girl in the photo is dressed a little old, but she looks more put together than the Vuolos.

I think she Lauren would actually.....Because I've read that pleated skirts are back. And the Duggarling Horde Love their trends! (while preaching loudly that they don't .)

"PLEATED SKIRTS ARE BACK IN STYLE

"If there is a trend you definitely don't want to miss this season, then it's a pleated skirt. Yes, this bottom piece is back in style now and we see pleats are making a surprising resurgence."

I actually like Jinger's suit with the red shoes, but I think it's because I need a new suit for work so it caught my eye. It's a little too formal and staid for someone her age, but I'm impressed she wore pants to this thing (unless this conference doesn't care about women in pants?).

But but my evangelical sister in law tells me that Jesus  REALLY  was only drinking grape juice. And that wedding in Cana was really only serving grape juice so he didn't do much except it was a miracle. So evidently the bible is wrong, except it's the TRUTH.

I'm pretty sure that most of the high-end evangelical churches are now okay with women in pants. They probably don't want close-fitting and/or ripped jeans. But relatively conservative pantsuits and such have moved pretty permanently into that crowd, I believe. 

Just as long as the woman doesn't think that wearing the pants means she's in charge of anything, it's okay. And they've brought on board some female speakers to explain why that attitude's the only one that God approves of, so it's all good.

Well, it's Calvinist. And (as I frequently harp on!) a lot of people (not all, of course) in the American Calvinist tradition, including the evangelical part of it, see themselves as a kind of American aristocracy because they follow the religious path of the Puritans. The original band. The real founding fathers. The Plymouth Rockers. 

Many see themselves as direct heirs of Jonathan Edwards (Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God!), the Mather boys, John Winthrop (Mr. City on the Hill), John Harvard, etc. So a lot of Calvinist churches have long attracted and still attract people who consider themselves top of the heap......That's the reason that in a lot of American towns throughout the 20th century, the local First Presbyterian church was an old, very fancy one downtown full of industrialist bigwigs and the heirs of same. 

G3 has MacArthur-related people (who we know are like this) and also some Doug Phillips-related people (who also went for this whole "American aristocracy" thing with Vision Forum -- before his secret bag of evil sleaze exploded all over it...). They also see themselves, of course, as the intellectuals of evangelicalism.

They're into being aristocrats and into being aggressively Calvinist....with some tasteful grifting thrown in. So I'm sure they've worked to attract whatever evangelicals they can find to whom they can sell their brand of Calvin-derived thinking. And who are as high up in our social and financial piles as possible. 

Not clear how successful they've been at attracting these folks. Not even clear how many of their target audience exist. But I'm sure that's what they're aiming at. 

They're trying to assemble a country club bonded by a love of predestination, expensive suits, and a determination to keep women in their place.

You can see why this is the segment of evangelicalism and Calvinism that Jeremy strives to cozy up to.

I'm sure that they will be chartering the entire ship for the G3 2021.  That ship carries 3,114 passengers, so if the attendance was over 5000 in 2020, I'm sure they'll get enough to nearly fill the ship.  I was once on a Christian music cruise with a friend several years ago and while they did have alcohol, the crew were told NOT to sell it.  (I tried to buy a beer and was refused)  When a company charters a ship, they can dictate a lot of things.

Pfff.  Amateurs. 

No explanation of Cana is complete without an extra assertion that God "let" the water be turned into alcoholic wine just because the audience expected it; and that sometimes in the commission of Biblical miracles it's OK to "use evil for good".  

Or that half the wineskins were set aside for the "kiddy tables" and did contain unfermented wine.

Yeah, I hope they charter the entire ship for their alcohol-free adventure. Can you imagine the buzz-kill for other travellers if they can’t buy a drink or have to endure large prayer sessions in the dining room?
