Stop grinding on Jesus

A friend on Facebook had this on her wall and I though it was a joke… 

…but apparently she did not because she explained that kids today are too sexualized and need to know to leave room for the holy spirit because that keeps them from dancing too close and rubbing their junk together and I guess I get the concept but wouldn’t that mean that now they’re all rubbing their junk on Jesus?  Because that seems like you’re just trading one problem for a bigger one.  So I was like, “Stop grinding on Jesus.  He doesn’t have time for dirty dancing menage-a-trois.  He’s got shit to do.”

And that’s the third person who unfriended me this week.

He’s NOT a bridegroom, if he were, he’d be here in the flesh and he could be treated like a real bridegroom should be treated. it’s sick. And I have news for the bouncy Christian women: Jesus was probably nowhere near as handsome as the paintings make him out to be. But if that keeps you coming back….

  136. Yeah, we hear this a lot at certain homeschool dances. Frankly, if they’d just promote standard/smooth ballroom dancing, the problem would be solved. Ballroom dancing actually requires very specific poses so the dancers naturally have some ‘space for Jesus’ & my kids never complained about any kind of spacing because they knew it was a part of ballroom dancing. They did complain about the adults @ the homeschool dances walking around saying ‘Leave space for Jesus’.😏🤣 Though, if you wanted to cause trouble, you could encourage the learning of Latin dances & use of the requisite Latin dance outfits…that’s very different from the ‘American standard’ ballroom dancing and leaves NO room for Jesus…or much to the imagination, as they say…😏😱😁

  174. At my kids’ primary school they justified a very old fashioned “learning to dance” program on the basis that it gave (primary school) aged children the chance to interact with members of the opposite sex (in a co-ed school). Did make me wonder if kids who didn’t learn to dance would ever marry…. and of course 8 years later school authorities would be beating those same members of the opposite sex apart on the dance floor…..

    I never heard the ‘leave room for Jesus’ in the context of dancing, but this reminds me so much of my sister’s wedding..They had talked to the vicar ahead of time and he knew they weren’t religious, but was fine with that.
    On the day they got a substitute vicar instead, and his address was partly about what bad people we all were for not being in church all the time, and partly about Jesus being a really important person in their marriage. It did sound very much as though he was telling them that they had to have a threesome with jesus to be properly married.
    I have never bee prouder of my family. No one made any comment about it until the vicar was out of earshot, and no one burst into hysterical giggles during the ceremony. But it was a damned close run thing.
    It’s probably just as well that the vicar didn’t come to the reception, though.

  202. If my admittedly-patchy-at-times memory serves, we were allegedly created “in God’s image”…now, does this mean physically? mentally? spiritually? Exactly what are we talking about here? I mean, we’ve all seen some pretty damn nasty people out there, and I’d hate to think that God is anything like those folks, right? Anyway, I’ve always taken it to mean that we’re supposed to be like them because we, too, are aware of the existence of good and evil, and capable of complex thought (then again, though, some people…); assuming that, then presumably God also has an amazing sense of humor–I mean, really, look at platypuses (or is that platypi?)! How else would something like that come about unless you had a tired Creator at the end of Day 6 thinking “Let’s see…I need another creature for this weird continent down there, and I’ve already put enough animals, reptiles, and insects there to kill every other critter on the planet a million times over, so what’s next? Ah, screw it–here’s this beak, and this tail, and this bit of fur, and it can lay eggs, but nurse its young, too, BANG, done. There you go, you two, and be fruitful and multiply and all that good shit, got it?” So when you get right down to it, clearly God has the Best Sense of Humor Ever, which means none of us are going to Hell for all of our blasphemous jokes, because they’ve probably already Been There and Done That while hanging out with the Angel Gabriel. (Or I could be wrong and we all ARE going to Hell, in which case at least we’ll all be together with a great bunch of people, am I right?)
