“And lo,” Jesus said to them. “No fatties, K?” -by Selfish Mitch

So, I saw this photo online today. This is a real truck spotted in a Costco parking lot. My money would have been on Wal-Mart, by the way, but I digress. Look at this bullshit.

My answer to both questions is yes, by the way, and it’s none of this asshole’s business. I am working on losing weight, but it’s for my health. And also, I want to feel confident in clothing that you don’t approve of. I went to the website and their the women have to wear skirts and dresses past the knees and shirts with sleeves brand of misogynistic religious folk. I’m a pants wearing woman who hates wearing sleeves of any kind except when it’s really cold outside, so I guess that makes me a whore in their eyes! FYI, I don’t like that word. I don’t think it’s ok to shame sex workers or any woman whose sexual choices you don’t like. This is a refrain that I’ll keep repeating until the world understands-stop telling women what to do with their bodies. Women are adults with equal rights and autonomy, and their choices are none of your damn business.

It’s just disgusting to me that in 2019 someone feels right driving around with this on their vehicle. This level of hatred for masses of people you don’t know is super unhealthy. Imagine leaving your home every day and seeing that on the back of your truck, spending so much time thinking about the appearance of other people.

Quick reminder. Not everyone shares your beliefs. I think you’re wrong, dude, and I think you’re a giant shitgibbon, but I know you have the right to your beliefs. I don’t believe it’s cool to spread hate in the name of Jesus, who had a message of acceptance and love. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a church, but I don’t recall Jesus’ sermon on fatness as a shamable sin. Sure, gluttony is a thing, but a lot of overweight people aren’t heavy because they eat too much. There are a myriad of reasons, but again, it’s none of jackweed’s business.

Also, Jesus? The one from the Bible? He hung out with prostitutes and probably virgins and married women who showed their ankles and shit because he saw them as human beings and he believed in equality in the eyes of God.

Anyway, according to the website, I’m in the clear because I’m not “The American Church People.” What a relief. Side note: these fundies are super obsessed with what other people do with their genitals in the privacy of their own homes. It’s weird, guys

I’m going to leave you with one more screen shot from this webpage. We kind of agree on the point in red, for different reasons. This kind of vitriol and hatred aren’t bringing people to God, at least not to his God. I think that “neutered pastors” probably do a better job there, TBH.

In closing, these guys are the worst and I’m happy if they’re driving people away from this particular brand of “Christianity.” I may not identify as a Christian, but I sure love a lot of great ones. They’re people who do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly in their faith, and I respect that. I just know it’s not for me. Now I’m going to bed and wondering what this country would be like if the religious right hadn’t gotten their hands on so much of our government.

Your sluttish friend in tank tops and yoga pants,
