As I scour this internet thingy, I usually come across the occasional quote that I copy and paste into a future blog posting, like, say, ‘I Didn’t Say It …’ — appearing in this space every Friday morning at 10AM EST ... how's that for a plug?
But sometimes I come across a quote so, either hilarious, or stupid, or hilariously stupid, that I cannot save it until Friday; this is one of those times. I came upon this gem by Anthony Morris III, a member of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses at Towleroad, so let’s rip …
Morris III apparently believes that God Hates … no, not Fags, that’s Westboro, silly … Tight Pants and Spanx, and believes it’s because they are designed by The Gays. So he said this:
"Some of our sisters - what it are these spanx - these skin tight stuff they wear - when they exercise - they leave their home and they're jogging in this stuff. Look at the verse. Is that appropriate to wear skin tight spanx or whatever they call it? It's not modest and it's certainly not sound of mind. It's really not appropriate. There's really nothing else to say about it. Now you want to be in your home or your room and wear that stuff that's your business. But don't go out like that and say you worship the true God."
I guess Anthony Morris III’s God feels that women should hide their bodies? Or maybe he doesn’t want y’all coming to church all spanxed up? But it isn’t just women; Morris III also has a warning for The Men:
"And the other one that needs addressing is for these young fellas, cause the older ones aren't doing much of it thankfully, is the metrosexual look we've addressed that in the past. What's happened now is that it's really caught on more - the tight suit jacket and the tight pants. Better known as tight pants. They are tight all the way down to the ankles. It's not appropriate. It's not sound of mind. … The homosexuals that are designing these clothes - they'd like you in tight pants."
Well, of course we’d like you in tight pants. We’d like to see what we’re getting before we take it home, because, you know, The Gays only care about having ze sex wiz ze mens in our lairs. Or something.
I think Anthony Morris III needs to spend a little less time thinking about fashion, and tight clothes, and perhaps spend a little more time on his knees.
Praying! Get your minds out of the gutter! What would Anthony Morris III say about you!
