Editor’s note: Make sure you look at the photo accompanying this post at Facebook. It’s set so that it cannot be copied and shared here and it’s a representation of slut shaming in the church. He compares a woman’s unseen parts to a mine filled with gold and gems, not realizing that mines can collapse, can kill people and are deadly places to be, not always some wonderment filled with treasures untold like in Disney’s movie “Aladdin”

Now Vyckie’s remarks on this:

I do not have enough middle fingers to adequately express how much this “modesty/rape culture” shit pisses me off … so here’s an eyeroll instead:

◔̯◔ ←Me, rolling my eyes … tears would also be approriate.

“But if you leave your precious minerals uncovered on the surface of the earth, you always attract a lot of illegal miners to come and mine you illegally.” Seriously?

Two young ladies arrived a Meeting wearing clothes that were quite revealing their body
parts. Here is what the Chairman told them:He took a good look at them and made them sit.Then he said something that, they might never forget in their life. He looked at them straight in the eyes and said; “ladies, everything that God made valuable in this world is well covered and hardly to see, find or get.

1. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected.

2. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell.

3. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers of rock and to get them, you have to work hard & dig deep down to get them.

He looked at them with serious eyes and said;
“Your body is sacred & unique” You are far more precious than gold, diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.”So he added that, if you keep your treasured mineral just like gold, diamond and pearls, deeply covered up, a reputable mining organization with the requisite machinery will fly down and conduct years of extensive exploration.

First, they will contact your government (family), sign professional contracts (wedding) and mine you professionally( legal marriage).But if you leave
your precious minerals uncovered on the surface of the earth, you always attract a lot of illegal miners to come and mine you illegally.Everybody will just pick up their crude instruments and just have a dig on you just freely like that. Keep your
bodies deeply covered so that it invite professional miners to chase you.

Let us all encourage our wives, friends and daughters to dress well and decent!
