Dominionists are so privileged.

I'm fighting a sadness today, and distracting myself by poking around for things to laugh at .... even if the laughter is brittle.

 

Dear, demure, restored, sales-whiz Stacy McDonald is recycling her stories on the ole yoursacredcalling.com blog, and I dove into one on "why we wear dresses" with .... a little glee.

 

Stacy primly asks us to read the entire article before we comment. So I did, even followed the links contained within and read those.

 

I'll snark later - immediately, the life of privilege that Stacy and others lead is what I want to comment upon.

 

It's the life of the person who doesn't *have* to shop at Goodwill - but who may choose to "thrift" to fulfill her creative side. As opposed to the one whose budget allows Goodwill and not much else.

 

Or who has time for reflection as to whether what she's put on shows her to be a follower of Jesus of Nazareth - and who doesn't automatically acknowledge nuns in Roman Catholic orders who do and don't wear traditional habits. As opposed to the woman whose reflection after dressing is a blur - she's got to get to the hospital/restaurant/office to support her family with a dreary job outside the home.

 

Or for whom deciding when and how to counsel a sinnin' sister about her visible cleavage, or thighs, or underwear. As opposed to the person who needs to decide when and how to counsel a homeless woman who's stalked into the narthex (church lobby) after services demanding money, or a woman who's shaking from the DT's.

 

It's the privileged man/husband/father whose masculinity can be amplified by his wife and daughters wearing skirts, but actually it's the sad man whose masculinity is competed with by his wife and/or daughters in trousers. As opposed to the man who's simply glad his female relations have clothes to wear, and the happy one whose masculinity doesn't consider itself competed with by a female - in any style of dress.

 

I'm as privileged as they come. I've never gone to bed hungry because there was no food for me to eat. I'm in a mere two layers of clothes while the temps outside continue to plummet, because my house is warmed by a reliable source. In fact, I'm privileged because I *have* a house.

 

Stacy and her ilk have financial success, most of their health, huge families and dozens of friends, well appointed houses and properly behaving husbands. They actually - I just realized - have to LOOK for things to complain about and worry about and obsess over and lecture about to others.

 

They're so foolishly clueless in their whining and uber-moralizing. I could live that way, but I won't.

Privileged people, that's what they all are. :wtf:

MamaJB, there are just soooo many scriptural references to Jesus admonishing the Daughters of Eve about their dress and robe lengths, we should be grateful Sister Stacey has blessed us with this counsel. How else would we know our time is better spent clucking "shame, shame, shame on the sinner!" as opposed to handing Sister Mary Ignatius a 20 to gas up the van that brings the homeless to shelters?

Am I the only one who, upon reading the title of this thread, immediately had their mind go to "dominants" (as in BDSM) rather than "dominionists"? Not at all the thread I was expecting but that's probably for the best!

Haha, nope. I may be reading the wrong blogs...

And yes I agree, they are privileged in many ways (domionists I mean),

If all you've got to complain about is seeing a little cleavage or having the kid at check out say "Happy Holidays" to you, then you are indeed privileged. Perhaps your time would be better spent being thankful for what you have and helping those less fortunate then clicking your tongue at people and trying to shame them.

Thanks to the kind mods for delivering the title of this topic from the bigggggg mistake I made it to begin with. To my tiny mind, "doms" will always be dominionists. I'd best be careful when I'm on a pub crawl and discussing my personal passion of exposing and countering domINIONISTS or I could be in a very interesting sitch.

Back to the promised snark - I don't have any. But looking at SpiritualSoundingBoard.com for Doug Phillips is a tool updates, I found that the discussion of husbands physically disciplining wives devolved at one point into a headcovering turn. It made me think of Mayim Bialik - stay with me, I promise I'm on-topic - who after her divorce blogged on kveller.com about a variety of changes to her life as an observant Jew.

One of them was whether or not she'd cover when she said prayers or attended services on the Sabbath. IIRC she decided she would. I felt a little sorry for her and didn't know why. Reading the SSB.com discussion and the links they provided to BaylyBrothers *shudder* blog and a place called headcoveringmovement.com, I felt sorry again and figured out why:

The ladies who choose to cover - whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim or other - do so in the best of cases because they've been taught that it's their proper way to talk with God. Me? I've decided that God is big enough that S/He can take my talk no matter my apparel. Stacy and others of her type - again, no matter the religious system - make plenty of book by keeping their followers off-balance: Can a woman truly worship properly without a hat? a tam? a veil? a Kleenex? (Big MJB told us that while in Catholic grade school, if a little girl forgot her headcovering, a nun would make the girl wear a Kleenex on her head to comply with the man-made rules.)

Also, there's a response to Stacy's post from somebody named William who describes himself as unmarried, 38, and having reproached a sister in Christ for the unbuttoned buttons on her otherwise-buttoned blouse. So deep is his question/comment that Stacy sends in Reverend James McDonald to address William.

Oy.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.
