Of pigskin, Katy Perry and… Pea Soup?

I’d like to once again apologize for the actions of one of my so-called “fellow Christians”  for  again making an asinine and embarrassing statement that causes all sane people to cringe, and gives atheists another reason to laugh at us.

When I see stuff like this I always pray that the original source of this article is the Onion or another satire site and that no one, not the audience listening nor even the person spewing this nonsense actually believes the nonsense spewed forth.

It really saddens me to think that  this fear based, superstitious form of religion is still believed and  practiced in the 21st century. This is the same mentality that brought us the Salem witch trials, denies evolution and generally is just afraid of science,  and progress in general.

And what’s even scarier is that nonsense like this is the level that contemporary religious thought; contemporary Christian discourse  is at?  No wonder was can’t have an open dialogue and learn from our Islamic brothers or sisters, or any religion for that matter, or even from other denominations… or solve any of the problems on this planet because this is what fills the airwaves, and the heads of Christians in this country.

While I’m not a fan of her music, and couldn’t quote a Katy Perry lyric to save  my life, I don’t think thakatyperryt “pure maximum evil” will be coming out of our televisions tonight (just a few mediocre pop lyrics) nor do I believe Satan is out there waiting to snare us via the NFL’s choice of mid game entertainment (Of course I don’t believe in an anthropomorphic fallen angel strong enough to constantly do battle with an all knowing and all powerful God, and trying to lure people to his side, or hell for that matter, existing anyway. More on that in another blog someday.)

Although I really could  care less about Katy Perry being the choice this year, or  what she sings… a wardrobe malfunction might not be a bad thing. She is kind of cute in that pale skinned dark haired succubi kind of way. (The Devil made me say that. 🙂 )

This kind of reminds me of the brouhaha surrounding the Miracle Whip commercial which IIRC debuted during last year’s Superbowl broadcast.

Remember “Stacie’s Deviled Eggs?”

There was a huge fundie backlash on that commercial, and the company’s FB page was inundated with complaints about how clearly evil and  satanic that spot was… Like no one has ever brought Devil’s Eggs to a church function.

Some self proclaimed prophet calling himself the  “Third Eagle of the Apocalypse” claimed through some twisted way that the commercial would herald the  “End Times.”

Evidently;

All you have to do is count the number of deviled eggs the woman makes, divide by two, subtract a dozen, turn it into a fraction and then turn that into the Devil’s phone number. Don’t forget, the woman’s name almost spells Satan if you rearrange the letters and drop a few plus she “looks like a transvestite” witch. Oh, yeah. It just keeps getting better the longer you watch.

And according  to this nutjob, wanker guy, it’s all tied in to the Illuminati, Freemasonry, “The Great Deception,” the New World Order… and probably Obama too

So evidently if you have black hair, pale skin and are a woman (and hot) then clearly you are an evil spawn of Satan or something.

Seriously, when are we going to have a grown up view of God, Jesus, other religious, and especially Christianity? A Christianity that’s focused on the teachings of Jesus, and doing good works? When are we going to stop wasting time with  outmoded superstitious drivel like this? Or worrying the Christianity is under attack from all angles, (including evidently pop singers, and  salad spread manufacturers.)

Sigh.

Oh, in case you don’t get the pea soup reference;

Enjoy the game… and the halftime show, and if you  have some of Stacie’s deviled Eggs, all the better. Personally they just give me gas.

[Post halftime update.] Katy Perry’s  performance was… one of the, and I’m sad to say it, most disappointing halftime performances I’ve ever witnessed. This was supposed to bring about “Satan’s reign on earth?” Really? Perry has much more talent than that showed. It was so sanitized and Disney-fied to avoid a scandal (or wardrobe malfunctions)  that it had no oomph to it, no passion whatsoever. The NFL was so concerned with preventing another wardrobe malfunction, or scandal of any type,  that any hint of her sexiness, or talent for that matter, was dampened… it was only sexy  if you’re into manga or a pedophile. It was only “maximum evil” if by evil you mean “stupefyingly boring.”
