If it weren’t for the goggles I wouldn’t pick up
What a place!
Beer Goggles and religion
Much the same thing
Obscuring your judgement
Impairing your vision
Need to piss
What the Fuck?
Who are you?
Don’t call me
I’ll call you
Infallible truth, inerrant word
The mind it boggles
Read the Bible
But remove the Goggles
I feel as though I need to explain this poem. It is offensive, and deliberately so.
The poem is a reflection on Judges 11 and the list of heroes we find in Hebrews 11.
There is a lot of ugly stuff in the Bible.
Jephthah’s faith is commended because he sacrificed his virgin daughter as a burnt offering to our God, yes the very same God that we worship. (Unless you can find something else he has done?)
The world looks on at a bunch of closed minded, goggle wearing freaks that are in bed with a very ugly God. A God so wrathful that we need to be saved from him.
What has happened is that in our defense of biblical inerrancy we have put on goggles that make bad things look good.
You will hear people defending the beating of slaves and telling us that biblical slavery was not like real slavery. Or that marrying your rapist was best for the girl in that culture because she would die otherwise…… beer goggles, mature religion takes them off. These things are bad.
