Is Jezebel the Baddest of the Bad Girls of the Bible?


Not long ago on Facebook, a fellow Unitarian Universalist minister, as I recall, mentioned visiting a new city and seeing announcements for worship services for the two most liberal congregations. The UU church advertised the sermon title as “On Consciousness,” while the progressive Christian congregation had a sermon advertised as “Bad Girls of the Bible.” The minister asked, “Which one would you attend?”

Now, I actually would have been interested in that reflection on consciousness. But I take the colleague’s meaning. And the more I thought about it, the more I thought there’s something for religious liberals, for Unitarian Universalists, in going back and looking at who is thought to be a bad girl in the Bible. Eve? Delilah? Mary Magdalene? How about Jezebel?

    It seems to me that killing someone by throwing them to dogs is an act of much greater evil than taking a vineyard or worshipping idols. If Jezebel is a bad girl, how much badder are the men who killed her?

    Interesting article, thanks for linking.
