I can tell a judgemental person – just by looking at them.
Just when you might think that ‘Good Christians’ have reached the limit of the depths that they will sink to – someone starts digging.
I recently read a Christian’s blog-post. Not an Apologist debater – merely a denizen of the American Bible-belt, publishing from just this side of the Westboro Baptist Church.
He went down-town to conduct some business, and saw a family of four get out of a car. He just knew by looking at them, that they weren’t a Christian family. The 7-9 year old daughter was wearing yoga pants – and he didn’t approve of yoga pants.
The mother had a Karen haircut – and you know what those Karens are like. No, I don’t! I don’t even know what a “Karen haircut” looks like.
I reached his post through an Atheism tag, although the word Atheism was not used in the entire article. He very carefully skirted making that accusation. He wrote, “I might be wrong, but I don’t think that I’m being too judgemental.” Yes, you are, and with no proof or justification! 😯
What was most disturbing was that this was far from an isolated viewpoint. The post was an hour old when I reached it, and already it had 7 likes from other self-appointed cultural/religious gatekeepers who agreed with him.
He may have been from Arkansas. In a related (actually, two) story, 29 years ago, Arkansas banned yoga. I don’t believe that the ban is state-wide, only in the schools. 🙄 We can’t allow our children to be exposed to that Asian voodoo stuff. It might make them think hard enough to question Jesus. All that stretching is way too sensual, and some of them poses might incite lust. It’s a good thing that Sears went bankrupt. At least they’re not mailing out those pornographic catalogues anymore.
You can mail all your dismay, disbelief, and disapproval to Archon c/o Archon’s Den. I will mix it with liberal doses of kitty-litter siftings, and forward it where it will do the most good.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow – will be another April day. See you there. 😀
