Simple answers to simple questions -- Christianity edition.

How seriously can you take a religion when, even to its own followers, it becomes indistinguishable from parody?

Answer: Not very.

This has been another edition of "Simple answers to simple questions."

I think it's a parody. I checked out the "Love God's Way" web site and they feature Cindy Lauper under "Safe Music." Now, everyone knows Lauper's "She-Bop" was hilarious because of the fact that most didn't get that the song was about masturbation. There's also a quote from Oscar Wilde, described as "reformed homosexual."

I'll have to say, if it is a parody, it's of a type that's getting kind of stale. What's next? Parodies about parodying things that are self-parodying?

maybe pseudo-Christians (maybe not) making parodies?
Perhaps someday some Christians will get together and reinterpret the Bible so they can have threesomes...
Oh wait--
New slogan--
Christianity: Whatever you want it to be.

Like this? Apparently, the Bible condones anal sex:

"I thought the Bible said anal sex was a sin.

...In fact, many Biblical passages allude to the act of anal sex between men and women. Lamentations 2:10 describes how “The virgins of Jerusalem have bowed their heads to the ground,” indicating how a virginal maidens should position themselves to receive anal sex. Another suggestive scripture tells of a woman’s pride in her “valley” (referring to her buttocks and the cleft between them) and entices her lover to ejaculate against her backside: "How boastful you are about the valleys! O backsliding daughter who trusts in her treasures, {saying,} ' Who will come against me?' (Jeremiah 49:4) And in the Song of Songs, the lover urges his mate to allow him to enter her from behind: “Draw me after you, let us make haste.” (Song of Solomon, 1:4)"

Gosh, reading that almost makes this blog seem like a chapel.
