FIFTY SHADES OF HYPOCRISY

From HERALD ONLINE:

Many evangelical women say they wouldn’t touch the racy best-seller, "Fifty Shades of Grey." But evangelical leaders also realize that some members of their churches and Bible studies can’t resist. A month ago, worried that the book could harm Christian marriages, leaders at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary hosted a closed-door women’s meeting on what it all means and what churches should do about it.

“I think they’re asking first of all, ‘Is it truly pornography?’ ” said Terri Stovall, dean of women’s programs at the seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. “We say yes it is because it creates pictures in your head.”

Pictures in your head? Oh, yes, she's talking about imagination. I can see why evangelical "leaders" would be worried about their followers getting one of those.

  1. ‘Is it truly pornography?’ ”…“We say yes it is because it creates pictures in your head.”

    Brilliant deduction, Dean Stovall! Thanks for my first LOL of the day.

  2. The once was a women’s Bible group
    Where attendants were all cock-a-hoop
    What had got them excited
    Was that they’d be united
    By “Fifty Shades of Grey” followed by soup.
