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.
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.
