Birds of a Feather

Aunt Becky plays the “God will get me through it” card over her massive bribery screw-up.

Broken Friendships, Family Fights and Prison Sentence Anguish: How Lori Loughlin Is Coping With Her New Normal | E! News

With her entire world rotated on its axis, sticking to the tried-and-true whenever possible was the only thing that felt right. “She’s trying to keep a somewhat regular schedule—going to yoga and Pilates and seeing friends for lunch,” an insider told People. “She is very faith-based, and she knows her faith will get her through this.”

Thus far her relationship with God has proven stronger than some of the friendships she’s formed in L.A., a part of the country she’s called home since landing on Full House, the breakout gig that came after she spent her teen years as one of the youngest cast member on soap opera The Edge of Night.

I’m not opposed relying on faith in tough times. That’s kinda the whole point of a religion.

But this? Eh, seems like a cop out. Let’s ask another noted Christian, Candace Cameron Bure, sister of known cult member activist Kirk Cameron:

Candace Cameron Bure, whose own daughter Natasha Bure, 20, is close in age to Lori’s girls, seemed to speak for the entire clan at the 2019 Kids’ Choice Awards March 23.

“Where there’s a lot of heart, there’s a lot of love—and a loving family sticks together no matter what,” she said standing alongside Jodie Sweetinand Andrea Barber to accept the blimp-shaped trophy for Favorite Funny TV Show. “They stick together through the hard times, they support each other, they encourage one another, they pray for each other, and they stand by their side no matter how tough it gets.”

Questioned further about the situation on Today, Cameron Bure, once again, declined to throw her yoga buddy under the bus, telling Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, “You know, it’s too personal to us, and you never want to talk about someone that’s such a dear and close friend. But I think, I’ve already said that we are family, and we stand by each other and pray for each other, and we’ll always be there for each other.”

Oh ain’t that sweet. Ya’ll just love each other and pray for each other and ya’lls a family so you’re gonna just stick together like butter ‘n’ dumplins!

Gag me.

“Aunt Becky” spent $500,000 to fraudulently get her undeserving children into college. She knowingly lied and cheated on a massive scale, and deprived deserving people from getting a spot. All so her precious offspring would have a better life than someone else.

And her response is to say she’s relying on her faith to get her through it? She hasn’t apologized, owned up, or shown any type of repentance for what she’s done. Playing the God Card at this point is less about “I seek his forgiveness” and more “Well I believe in Jesus, so leave me alone plebe.”

This makes real Christians look bad. You know where I first saw this article shared? On an Atheist Facebook page as just another example of a hypocritical I’m-better-than-you Christian with more money than faith. And they’re right.
