Jesus took the wheel and lo he did drive the bus full of all the women off of a holy cliff

I noticed recently that the adorable and very cute Carrie Underwood – the 2005 winner of the highly popular musical puppet contest, American Idol, has released her CD and dropped a couple of singles on us.

The second single from Carrie’s album is called “Jesus, Take the wheel”. Not like we don’t expect American Idol to suck but to come straight out on the Christian Pop wave is just plain weak.

This comment is to remind all of you of your duty when you are addressing the ladies who love to waffle on endlessly about their faith and religion and the bible to remind them about what the bible REALLY says about women.

For Instance,

1 Timothy, Chapter 2,

“2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  > Yup, God is a man, ladies – and don’t you forget it.

The chapter continues –

2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 
2:7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. 
2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.  “I will therefore that men pray every where.”

Yeah yeah, Blah blah….

And then the kicker.

2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
Thats right girls, No gold, No pearls, Nothing of costly array.

Dress in SHAMEFACEDNESS and SOBRIETY and in MODEST APPAREL!!

We didn’t write the book but if you’re going to preach a religion to people the least you can do is pretend you believe what it says.

For me, I’m a fortunate SOB.. I’m from the UK (living in the US) and despite the fact that the UK has a state religion (we call it Church of England – you might call it episcopalian) most of us don’t give two hoots about religion.

My wife is the daughter of a prominent Minnesotan geologist – Again, being married to another atheist is something I’ll be thankful for when I’m eating turkey this year whilst honoring a day when European immigrants paused briefly in their invasive genocidal onslaught against a native population – not that I’m pretending that the British have a squeeky clean rep when it comes to invasive genocide of a native population (i.e. South Africa).

I really enjoy reading all of your comments.

Thanks,

Deoxy.

  1. Well we did teach a lot of countrys the correct way to rape and pillage their way across the globe (well, as much of it as we knew about at the time)

    Indeed we did.

  3. Wow!  Let me just say that you seem to be very bitter against Christianity in general but your comments on the whole modest apparel thing struck me. It happens to be what I have been studying for concerning the modesty fashion show we are going to be having at church this month.  Unfortunately you don’t seem to know much about the situation of the trend in those days.  Here is some info from ApologeticsPress.org ” In the first century, many women were plaiting elaborate designs that would take hours to consrtuct and weave…. Apparently some women were turning the worship assemblies into fashio shows, attempting to one-up their contemporaries with flashy, expensive clothes and costly jewelery.  Instead of this gaudiness, Paul instructed the women to adorn themselves in that which is proper for women professing godliness with good woks.” 
      I know carrie underwood, as well as several others who sing praises about our King, may not be perfect but at least they acknowledge that Jesus is Lord and He has complete control.  Now I’m just guessing here but I would say just fom reading your comments and sarcasim of scripture that you do not believe in Jesus as YOUR Lord and Savior, ummmm hmmm… am I right?  Here is something Jesus said in Matthew 10:33 “But whoever denies me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is also in heaven.” I encourage you to read the rest of the scripture that follows and maybe even therest of the Bible.  Tomorrow is not promised to anyone and it would be even more sad if it takes you lying on your death bed to come to the realization that you have made a huge eternal mistake.  Please do not denie Him! Thank you for your time.

  4. “…He has complete control.”

    To what, exactly, is this in reference? Is it no more or less than the decision to send a person on to heaven or hell? Anyone?

  5. Kristina, as valuable as fashion advice right from doG must be, don’t you find it just the teensiest bit odd that somehow it turned out the men who founded those religions kept all the power for themselves?  Which is to say, keeping it from women?

    Think of the enormous human cost of keeping half the human race from taking full part in the strength of society.  That really is something to be ashamed of, don’t you think?

  6. KS: Jesus is Lord and He has complete control

    (I love it when they parrot this stuff.  LOL)
    Ah so, the current war in the ME is under his control.
    When do you think your guy might stop allowing children on both sides being killed?
