People Say the Darnedest Things

People Say the Darnedest Things March 5, 2020

Today, because I have only so much concentration and I’ve collected a laundry list of articles to respond to, we’re going to have a “people say the darnedest things” roundup.

First, I give you convicted felon Roger Stone:

I feel pretty good because I’ve taken Jesus Christ as my personal savior. And it’s given me enormous strength and solace, because He knows what’s in my heart.

I’m getting some definite Chuck Colson vibes.

And then there’s televangelist and one-time presidential candidate Pat Robertson:

If your gut is healthy, you don’t have to worry about coronavirus!

Put please do still buy his snake oil—er, silver solution.

Things are even weirder in New Zealand, where a pentecostal pastor had this to say:

Interpreting Ephesians 2:2, which refers to “the prince of the power of the air,” Tamaki said some evil spirits invaded human bodies.

“Satanic spirits control invisibility on a certain level where they can energise.”

Apparently airborne pathogens are just demons? Who knew!

And here’s patriarchal blogger Lori Alexander:

How come it’s only biblical submission that gets so skewered? No one would think that students have lower value and are degraded because they submit to their teachers.

That Lori compares the relationship between husband and wife to the relationship between teacher and student seemingly without realizing that that would be at all weird is exactly the problem here.

Here’s another one by Lori Alexander as well:

I’m not sure how men could be attracted to women dressed as men like female police officers and females in the military. These are men’s jobs. If they weren’t, then women could dress like women in these jobs but they can’t. Stick to being feminine, women.

As several women in uniform point out in their tweets, they don’t put on their uniforms to attract men! To be perfectly honest, I don’t know any woman who sets out to attract men while on the job. That’s an annoyance most women would very much like to avoid—who knew that uniforms were the solution!

Lori says that if these jobs were designed for women, women could “dress like women” while on the job. What does she want? Skirt options on the uniform rack? Did she ever consider that maybe uniforms are designed to be appropriate to the job that needs doing, and not to the gender of the person doing the job?

Does she know that women wear pants these days?

Bah! Humbug!
