Thunderstruck Thursday

I'm speechless.  I'll let the video below speak for itself.





The class is for women only and they must bring a copy of the church bulletin to be admitted.
Amen.

I'm torn. I don't want to be judgemental...but...um...this is just weird. Hilariously weird! (This reminds me that I took a Jazzercise class for awhile and all the music was Christian music. My friend and I called it Jesurcize.)

What not has been done in the name of Jesus!

i don't see anything wrong with dancing. if they're not publicly stripping and they're doing it for exercise or for their husbands, where is the harm? and i thought the interview with the lady on the street was funny cuz spinning around a pole does not mean you're trading sex for money. people just love to make ignorant comments and point fingers.

The Broad said...

Ahh, bless ... ;-)

laughingmom said...

Favorite line : "the pole is her temple" ... I dunno, that just got me!

The Vegetable Assassin said...

I laughed! It's a weird assed thing for sure but they're not exactly going out and stripping in front of leering men, they're just some ladies in shorts, dancing around a pole. I can't believe all the opposition, it's really no different from any other dancing in the sense they're doing it. Having said that, all those people who were opposing looked like they were ready to go take a firearm into the church and fry them all for Jesus. :)

Oh my - this really blows my post on how "charming" small towns in Texas can be! Too funny!

i am all for freedom of worship and various expressions of faith...wonder how much it would be to install one of those altars in my home...for spiritual purposes of course...bet it would even be tax deductable then....hmm...may be onto something here...

I think anything that brings us closer to God is good. They are being tasteful. They are not on a stage getting dollar bills in their butt-cracks. Also, it was the original sin that made us self-conscious in our own skin. I think anyone that has a major issue with this is either insecure in their bodies or in their own faith.

natalee said...

WTF??? lol.. i cant even...ps i knew it was going to be good when you said you were speechless..........hugs my friend

!?!?!
I sure would like to have a go at pole dancing though...it's supposed to be very good for your figure! (Not so good for creaky joints)

Jen said...

Umm...Yuh......OK.......I can only say..."to each his own"!

Bossy Betty said...

Closer to God? Hummmmm..... I gotta think about this for a little bit.

Eva Gallant said...

Tam: That is funny!

laughingmom: Me, too.

Veg: as usual, you crack me up. I don't have a problems with the dancing either. It's an excellent way to get fit. It's just the whole "for Jesus" part that is strange to me.

Brian: Leave it to you to see the financial advantage! lol

Nicki: I don't have a problem with pole dancing to get fit; I just thought the "for Jesus" part was a little odd.

Facing50: It's an excellent fitness exercise I'm sure, but these old muscles and joints couldn't do it! lol

Jen: Yep.

rosaria said...

I'm speechless.

Ann On and On... said...

I have no idea what to say..... It's not for me to judge. I just have the lingering question..."why".

Rae said...

Weird - just plain assed weird.

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Hhhhh-yup! This is just weird for me too. I'm a Christian; and I see nothing wrong with pole dancing for exercise or for your fella or even if it's the only job you can find. But DON'T say it's for Jesus. That's just plain wrong.

And anyway, if it's for Jesus, why the high heels, short shorts and belly tops. We don't have to dress like we're Amish; but we ain't tarts either!

Let's call a spade a spade here and say: "We are Christian women who love Jesus but we also want to experience the pleasure of pole dancing in order to bring up our positive body image and self-esteem"!

Pat said...

Oh my gosh. Seriously? What's Jesus got to do with this? And why the high heels? Don't get me wrong. I'm not against pole dancing. I'm sure it's good exercise and all. But "doing it for Jesus" is a bit much, don't you think?

Michelle Saunderson said...

Whaaaaat? Did I wake up in an alternate universe? Is this bizaro world?

Pearl said...

Whaaaaat?! And Whhyyyyyyy?!!!

SherilinR said...

you've got to wear the high, high heels to pole dance properly. it's a grip & climbing thing. and it would be much more difficult in big, long clothes. you've got to have skin contact on that pole or you'll fall. don't ask me why i know this.

Al Penwasser said...

Whatever floats your boat is fine with me.
But...not for nothin'...I didn't think Jesus was a Pole. I thought he was Jewish.
Hallelujah!

Out of My Mind said...

Well, if that doesn't take the prize!

I have tried...I can't think of one single (appropriate) humorous things to say.....kt

injaynesworld said...

What's next? Lap dances for the Lord?

Nick said...

I'm not a fitness expert, but those gals weren't exactly burning off the mega-calories as far as I could see.

tsonodablog said...

I saw that on TV yesterday, somewhere. So stupid. And a little creepy. Pole dancing for Jesus. I'm so sure. Not.

Helene said...

I hate to sound judgmental but how can pole dancing bring one closer to God?? It just seems so...well, strange.

But, with that said, pole dancing does seem to be the latest "in" thing. I have a friend who takes a class once a week and she says she's developed some serious strength in her arms and torso as a result. Who knew?

Eva Gallant said...

outofmymind: You'll notice I didn't say much either!

Jayne: Now there you go!

Nick: good point!

Terri: It does make you wonder.
