I came across a photo of Susanna Keller wearing short-shorts, posing with her boyfriend who was wearing blue eyeliner. Yes, I was very shocked. This is on her public facebook profile (which I think it's a bad idea that she opens it to the public.) She also has another profile picture of Josh and Anna Duggar's wedding day on the TV with someone angrily clawing at their hair in annoyance and Susanna comments, "This picture explains all!" It sounds to me like she must be feeling some sort of animosity toward her family and is desperate to stand out & rebel, (especially by leaving her facebook public).
PBrooke did some research on facebook and found that the Keller Family is shunning their son, Daniel and his wife and also disapprove of Susanna's seemingly wordly behavior:
*At Thanksgiving, a poster asks, “Where was Esther?" (Who couldn’t make it because she lives in Oregon and has 6 kids & one on the way) (Deliberately did not ask where Daniel was since he is seemingly no longer a member of the family.
Daniel replies to the picture stating, “F[Censored Language] that I wasn’t invited!” This shows that he is being 'shunned' from the family. This is likely because in his marriage, he more so submits to his wife’s wishes instead of having her obey him.
*Esther’s husband replies to an old photo of Susanna dressed very modestly and responds, “I like this look much better…. That’s the suze I remember. Very sweet.-John.” They seem to disapprove of Susanna's change and miss how she used to be.
*Jessica, one of the members on here, found this that Daniel even states he wishes he was adopted. “Daniel: I wish I was adopted.
His uncle: Why...Think of it this way. Then you would not have such a "Great" Uncle!!!
His wife: Haha... Then he might have had a great dad!"
*Here Daniel listed another woman as his “Mother” on Facebook and not his own. http://www.facebook.com/m...84.27528.100000799838307
*Sola found this: Daniel said "Last time I checked that was only half of the fam." Susanna replied, "Yep sure is. Miss u soo much bro."
Clearly, the Kellers seem to have a dysfunctional family and Josh & Anna are doing their best to try to not let anyone onto it.
EDIT: Had to fix the links and adding more findings.
*Jessica also found the link to Rebekah's Husband's (Susanna's Brother-in-law's) expose on the details of Josh and Anna's wedding, how he does not speak with Josh & how him and his wife no longer part of ATI, and the ramifications that he had with TLC. http://duggarswithoutpity.blogspot.com/2009/01/insights-from-insider.html
These are some bits of his lengthy post. Read it in it’s entirety by clicking on the link as he goes on more about TLC manipulative ways and twisting the ministry of the show into it being sex-related:
"There have been many comments about the integrity of the Keller family and I would like to reveal some information that may set the record straight. However, there are some items that were offensive, because even if I don't agree with my in-laws on a lot of (most) things, they are still my wife's family.
That, and TLC did what media usually does: they twisted things to make them say what they wanted said. TLC has done a good job of using their show as a tool to change some things into UNreality.
As far as their [Duggar’s] beliefs are concerned: there are many areas where I disagree with my in-laws (and my own parents for that matter). I was raised in the same ATI/Bill Gothard/homeschool sect as the Duggars and Kellers, and as I grew older, I found the lack of truth in the teachings of this person and organizaton and developed my own convictions and standards. My wife and I are both beyond many of the things we were raised in and have left the quiverful movement and it's associated mentality behind.
That's not to say that we do not claim conservative Christianity. We both do. However, the fundamental junk that has permeated into a legalistic mindset of supposed relevant standards and lifestyles are all sickening to me. The sad thing about it is that a lot of people raised in this lifestyle never even stop to think for themselves and consider what the Bible really teaches. I did, and that's why I fall on the other side of the line from the rest of my family. Snark at me for being a conservative Christian, but don't snark at me for not thinking for myself….
Their children are socially capable, and adequately rounded young people. Sheltered, yes; stupid, no. They are fun and engaging. I Wouldn't have married my wife if this weren't so…."
