A thought occurred to me, about churchian hypocrisy

13 Mar

When churchian, evanjellyfish ‘pastors’ excoriate young men for not ‘manning up’ and marrying youngish women who are now wanting to get married real soon and are bitching about not being able to find any prospective husbands (or at least, ones to their liking), and when they are castigating many young men for their consumption of pornography, not only are they all too often ignoring the fornication of the single moms in their congregations, not only are they being hypocritical in attacking male porn but not female porn (i.e. romance fiction, Twilight, 50SOG), but they’re also refusing to recognize that if young men are consuming porn, they are enabled to do so by the young women who make it, who are themselves sinning in showing too much skin or even fornicating on camera, and additionally are culpable of being accomplices to the sins committed by the men who view such movies / websites.

I suppose they might argue that such women are ‘worldly’, and not within the realm of potential influence.

BUT churchian women are unfortunately just as worldly, and yet such pastors don’t give a hoot about that, caring only about the sins of men.

    Churchian pastors are like state legislators. Their actual beliefs are important, but not nearly as important as their careers. Churchian pastors are just as good at sticking their fingers into the sky and seeing which way the zeitgeist is blowing as any politician. Sure, the middle of the overton window in churchian communities is a bit further to the right than it is in the country as a whole, but it is an overton window nonetheless, and therefore it is on an inexorable leftward march.

    Agreed. And appealing to women’s desires has served them well, thus far, so for now at least, they have every incentive, in their minds, to keep going with what ‘works’.

    @Will S.

    But they are going extinct as appealing to women’s desires lead to diminishing returns.

    @Will S.

    If one is faithful to God however. One may remain small but one will remain because of God’s promise to peter. That the gates of death will not prevail against the church.

    @ infowarrior1: It may, but for now, the megachurches are still going strong, even as evangelicalism as a whole is on the decline…

    God does take care of His own, agreed.

    To extend what taco said, this is all driven by two imperatives:

    1. Full collection plates/fat tithe checks

    2. Keeping Mrs. Pastor happy so that she doesn’t EPL, rebel against, or otherwise disrespect/embarrass her husband.

    In other words, catering to the FI.

    I’m certainly not the first to point this out, but when you operate “church” like a business, as nearly all do, then you have to cater to your customers. Being that the majority of churchianity’s customers are women (or at least are it’s most influential customers), no “professional pastor” in his right mind will alienate them – unless he’s one of the rare ones with skills to fall back on that will let him get a REAL job in the real world. There aren’t many of those.

    This is why, really, the only pastors who can afford the luxury of spiritual integrity are lay pastors. Kinda like what the original First Century church had, prior to the Constantinian corruption.

    Indeed, feeriker.

    I suppose there is a silver lining, then, there; the truly faithful return to being a very much embattled minority, as in pre-Constantinian times…

    Thus the antithesis becomes clearer…

    Well ladies, definitely SOMETHING has ‘deepened’. :O) And the stables need shoveling too.

    Pretty soon Mr. Professional Pastor will be unemployed. The grrlls are bypassing his hotdog stand. lol

    Cheers.

    These women are so spiritual. Why, if only their Lord and Saviour could experience the deeply spiritually enriching experience of pregnancy, and be as blessed as them! (/sarcasm)

    American culture is a culture of circumcision, not a culture of clitoridectomy…

    That will only be completely true once the circumcision process becomes grotesquely mutilating, painful, and permanently damaging to the boys. Oh, and performed only by women.

    Give them time. We’re probably halfway there already.

    The first time around as a pregnant Baptist minister, Stacy Cochran Nowell harbored worries few other moms-to-be are likely to share. Chief among them was that older church members might object to the sight of an expectant mother in the pulpit.

    Pop quiz, class: Does anyone see the real problem described by this paragraph (hint: it ain’t got nuthin’ ta do with pregnancy)?

    Show of hands … anybody?

    (If you can’t spot the problem, congratulations. You’ve joined the ranks of the churchians.)

    Yeah. It’s misdirection, typical of negative female psychological tactics. Hide the rebellion against God and his Scripture by distracting the reader/churchian with (imagined) objections to pregnant pastorettes.

    The serpent is the most subtile creature in all the Garden. He makes it easy for us to rebel, or to go along with rebellion. He gives us ready excuses . . . see? the only problem here is the ‘pregnancy’ issue! Females preaching and ruling from the pulpit? Not even an issue on the table. Cuz, y’know, it’s assumed we’ve ALREADY accepted that ‘improvement’.

    Cheers.

    @ oogenhand: Nice aphorism. 🙂

    @ feeriker, ray: For those of us with opened eyes, pretty obvious, indeed. For the masses, alas, not necessarily so much…
