The Exotic Dance of Faith

Topless Church!

Topless Church!

Titles I was going to use:  The Topless Church, or, Protest Unto Others as You Wish them to Protest Unto You.

“Exotic Dancers Protest Topless at Church” (in Ohio)

I recently wrote about the teaching power of “Do Unto Others.”  You “do” to another so they LEARN not to “do” the same.  A contemporary twist on an ancient principle.  I think it makes sense.

The folks at this Ohio church are disgusted that this strip club is in their town, so they go and protest on a regular basis.  That’s certainly their constitutional right.  But sometimes “rights” have a way of coming back to haunt you, since others may just bring their “rights” right back to your doorstep!

So. . .what do the evil naked ladies do?  They show up at the church to “do unto the churchfolk what they do unto them.”

That seems fair, and right, doesn’t it?

(note what the well-dressed church lady yells at the “lust” ladies who are protesting:  “you don’t know love.”  Now that’s so kind and “loving” isn’t it?  My questions to the church lady would be something like, Why are you dressed so Attractive to Go to Church?  What’s with that Hair?  We may not like what You’re Doing in the privacy of that church!  Are you ashamed of the Body, or Sex?  Didn’t your God make us naked and sexual?)

What do you think about this?  (please make sure you’re fully clothed before responding!)

War on the Poor

“The central, defining issue of American politics.”

War on the Poor (Paul Krugman, NYT)

{Questions:  Where is the religious community?  Isn’t this their “central, defining issue”?}
