  •  wanna know how crazy they are? (18+ / 0-)

    I've got a several fundie co-workers.  One of 'em has a brother who's a real piece of work... I mean, scary.  This guy is a full-on Christian seperatist.  He home-schools his kids because he doesn't want them mixing with "secular" kids or learning anything that isn't "Biblical" (like science).  Most of his kids still can't read 'cuz their mom is supposed to be teaching them but talks on the phone and plays with Facebook all day.  He home-churches with some other like-minded lunatics, because even though our small town yellow pages has five pages of Baptist churches alone (so much for religion bringing people together!), he can't find one that's hardline enough for him.   He's a psychotic control-freak who rules like a tyrant over his sister and his 80-year-old mom.  He's so right-wing crazy that he yells at his sister for joining the ASPCA, because he thinks they "want to take away his guns" or "stop me from feeding my dog to my children if society breaks down."  

    (I'm pretty sure if society collapses to the point where you're having to eat your dog, the ASPCA will be defunct by then, but what do I know, I'm sane.)

    Anyway, this guy and his wife have 10 children (and always, always another one on the way).  Every one of them was born at home, because they don't believe in hospitals (too secular).  The wife's almost bled to death a couple of times, but that doesn't stop them.. .they just say that would be "god's will."  (Sounds like great news for the damn-near-a-dozen kids who'd be left with no mom, but, again, what do I know, I'm sane).

    Well, a couple years back, on baby number-eight-or-so, she started bleeding and passing tissue.  Everybody pleaded with them to go to the hospital immediately, but they said, no, no, that'd be getting in the way of this "God" person.

    So, they packed the wife up in the car and drove to Memphis to visit some crazy-religious midwife.  That's a few hours drive, and a bumpy car's just great for a woman in that condition.  Luckily, the wife and the baby both survived (just barely), but... pretty frickin' stupid, dangerous, and irresponsible thing to do.

    But, hey, wouldn't want to interfere with "God's will."

    (These idiots also let a goat that was infested with worms die a slow, painful, bloated death in their kitchen, because that was "God's will."  Meanwhile, the guy shot the family dog because it snapped at one of the kids.  Freakin' psycho.  But, unfortunately, a fairly typical Mississippi Christian-Taliban Republican.  Just in case anyone ever wondered why I'm so rabid to shut the GOP down, this is part of it... I know how bad they are, and know how dangerous it is to give them any power).
