Its that time of year, again. Before school starts every fall, Bossman kicks me out of the lab for a week. Ugh. He calls it a ‘vacation’. Whatever.
So now Im back home on The Farm, with my 28.8 kbps dial-up internet, and no wireless. Its like I went back in time 15 years… *shudder* Oh! And, my annual trip home also means its time for my annual Extremely Sophisticated Faith Bible Study! You see, I grew up in the middle of BFE, and the only radio stations that come in are the Christian networks, so I just use my 8 hour drive home as Evangelicals chance to win me over!
Not this trip.
This trip I learned how obsessed radical Christians are with ‘sex’. The act of sex, and gender roles for adults and children. Thats all I heard the four hours I could stand listening (plus “WE NEED MONEY!!! GIVE US MONEY!!!” every 8 minutes). I learned that its okay if your husband is a jerk to you. Not worrying about you if youre home late, telling you to ‘get to the point’ in the middle of a conversation, thats the more ‘spiritual’ path. Youre just being a mouthy bitch. Youre suppose to serve your husband. If you read your Bible you would have known that.
Men are the ‘spiritual head’ of the family. There are single mothers who have to be the heads of their family (and ‘they’ ‘honor’ them), but theyre going against Gods word until they remarry. Women should not, under any circumstances, be ‘spiritual leaders’ in their church. Also, send money. They are ‘coming up short’ this month.
Oh! And a woman called in who was very concerned about the friends she was hanging out with. Drug dealers? Drunks? Kleptos? Nononono. They are really supportive of her, and theyre happy, nice people, and they helped her through some ‘hard times’… but theyre not Christian!! She was advised to evangelize to them. Bring them to Christ. And she should send them money. They should all send money. Everyone should send them money.
Such an elegant faith.
Oh well. Theres always the drive home! Pray for me!
