Pole Dancing for Jesus


I’m writing this week’s post In The Name Of Jesus! Why? Well why not. It appears that everything Christians want to do they just stick, “In The Name Of Jesus!” after it and for some reason it becomes relevant and acceptable. Some of these causes are quite positive: Feed the Hungry, Clothe the Naked, Home the Homeless, etc. Some are quite negative: Blow Up the Clinic of the Non-Exploded, Shoot the Doctor you Don’t Agree With, Picket the Dead Soldier Who Died for Your Right to Picket, etc.

And then we have the just plain silly: Pole Dancing for Jesus. 

”]”]“And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.” (2 Samuel 6:14–15) [Photo Credit: http://en.wikipedia.org/]Now I accept that the fervently religious do many things “In The Name Of Jesus!” but I’m still scouring the Bible to find the chapter on pole dancing. Maybe I’m using the wrong version but it has eluded me. There is the blurb about David dancing before the Lord in 2 Samuel 6:14–15. There is a sort of “pole” in the picture, which is really a column, but my interpretation is that it’s a pole.

“And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.”

So without further ado, for those of you that missed the worldwide coverage here is “Pole Dancing for Jesus.”  I commend the young lady that started this and wish her luck.

  1. This ain’t your daddy’s “ole time religion” anymore. The hardcore sect I was raised in didn’t allow any type of dance . . . pole dancing would definitely have been “sinful.” Lordy, grams’d be spinning in her grave over this one.

    To each his own, who am I to judge.

  2. What do i think? I think this might bring a whole new group of “believers” into the fold. Worship at the altar of the pole. So does this mean strip joints can now also be consecrated and considered places of worship? Hmm…business idea?

  3. It really is amazing what some people do in the name of Jesus or God. A lot of people would probably believe in or at least want to know more about God, if other people would quit using His name to justify their stupidity.

  4. ROFL! How crazy are you! Have had a real terrible day, but this post is making me laugh so hard. Thanks for this one.
    PS – On a serious note, gotta love Christians for how sportingly you take jokes about your religion. Wish others were like you too.

    • Sayali, Glad it gave you a laugh. Actually I don’t think Christians at large take being poked fun at very well. But compared to others that I am afraid to mention, they’re sweethearts. Fatwa anyone?

So? What do you think?
