when a family is as wealthy and well connected as the Duggars, it's pretty loving tough for the kids to not end up in pretty cushy spots. even if the lot of them are functionally retarded thanks to their upbringing

Finally: a short anecdote from someone who met the family at a book signing.

Weird little story. Met them at a book signing in TN maybe a year or two ago. Was wearing a t-shirt with a t-rex on it. The line moved at a pretty quick pace, but when I went through one of the boys (a teenager) asked me why I had “dragons” on my clothes.

Didn't it say somewhere that they're taught that dinosaurs were the "dragons" in the Bible? I don't know I didn't read the whole loving Bible.

Eh, maybe. But Jim Bob isn't going to live forever and Josh is political poison. Publicly "supporting" them is one thing, actively propping up an admitted child molester and 18 of his idiotic brothers and brother in-laws might be a bridge too far.

I mean lord, of the husbands that have married the Duggar girls, one's a Wal-mart employee and the other is an unemployed dingus who mostly does Gothardism preaching.

Thinking of it another way, a loving hate group fired Josh...I mean asked Josh to step down...I mean he resigned with honor due to current circumstances.

There's an episode of their show where they go to a creationism museum. The crew laugh about it and rip on the museum over the credits.

I think the christian patriarcy movement is better at creating good, submissive housewives and stay at home daughters than it is at producing God fearing but functional and high earning christian men. There are a lot of single women in the movement waiting for husbands, apparently, because there are so few men who meet the religious standards for the society and at the same time are successful enough to support a giant family

But really, what sort of future are they setting their children up for? The education they push only teaches things like proper victim behaviors, any sort of scientific progress made in the last 300 years is all lies and devilry, what sort of clothing on women is sinful, and that any critical thinking and opposition to the head of the family will cause you to go to hell. I don't see any development of life or job skills, encouragement to go into fields not related to spreading of their particular brand of ignorance, or generally anything of the sort that would make any of them employable or otherwise useful outside the compound.

Even with the gutting of our education system, the Duggars and their ilk are more so disadvantaged since anything involving not being a professional politician, a brood mare, a used car salesman, or physical laborer is not even on the menu. Jim Bob is going to die, and gormless emotional cripple Josh is going to take over and what then? I highly doubt that the Duggar boys are going to start or be involved in any career that would pay a decent wage. Trying to take over Arkansas, Tennessee, and Colorado are nice and everything, but the real world has technical and professional obstacles that their educations will not prepare them for in the slightest.

One of the older boys is a cop. true story.

But he's obviously going places, he just graduated from community college with an AA in political science!

Can you imagine being in class with him? It was probably a real life version of God's Not Dead, starring Mr. Jessa Duggar as That Guy.

It'll be tougher with the scandal, though I am sure Josh will end up somewhere cushy if you give it some time. Don't underestimate the power of nepotism.

The girls will, of course, get the short end of the stick, since they are not allowed to work and are only allowed to marry within their cult. Which means their husband pool consists of dumb broke rear end idiots looking for a wife to be their mommy.

That and the monster described earlier on with a tail like a tree and all that poo poo. It's their excuse to claim dinosaurs existed with man, hence you get this bullshit;

And all the facts, evidence and science that says that's bullshit is just made up lies and satan's influence/god planting tests to lead the weak astray. You know, because an all powerful super deity that created you to be and act a certain way doesn't know how you act or what you are...you know, aside from giving a poo poo what a bunch of peons think of him at all times.

I actually joked with a friend once that someday far in the future if creationism doesn't survive the times, people are gonna find some holed up copy of it from our time along with a copy of Jurassic Park somewhere and think "Look what these dumb fucks believed"

Close. Leviathan=dinosaurs to these people

Fun fact, leviathan's behavior (thrashing tail) actually closely aligns with the Nile Crocodile which was a lot bigger and more wide-spread in those days. Behemoth was probably an auroch (ancestral wild cattle). Fundies of course ignore their existence and say they're proof that humans and dinosaurs lived together

Of course humans an dinosaurs DO live together because birds ARE dinosaurs and gently caress Jurassic Park for not giving them feathers but fundies like everyone else refuse to believe that

i cant believe how easy it is to start a cult

you just memorize the bible and focus an obscure passage disproportionally outside its actual relevance and make huge logical leaps in a loud certain voice

the key is to be really extreme about your views basically the more certain you are the more followers you gather

now keep in mind that the followers are a trickle but you are casting a wide enough net to catch as many people as you can

then you start stratification

in cults its important to stratify and filter

you gotta filter out as many people as possible and cast another net

finally after enough schisms you will have a core of true believers

about 100 people

this is your economic base to milk for money, rape, abuse, and treat as chattel

congrats on your new cult

grow it in size and try really hard to segment it and isolate it

make sure you keep the women to yourself and the men are sent to paramilitary brainwashing camps

keep it going and then move the whole cult to a small rural state and try to take over local politics

you are soon on your way to success

god bless

can i join your cult, bro

also, they have been known to use chainsaws - a fact that would have scared the ancients seeing as how they were not familiar with such a tool.
