As you know, the assault on marriage and the family continues. We must be ever vigilant in our defense of this most holy and unchanging union. Therefore, next week we will work to thwart the redefinition of marriage by celebrating “Traditional Marriage Sunday” which will take place immediately following Sunday services. I hope that you will join me for this most important event.
But who says discrimination has to be boring? Not us! We’ve lined up some fun and educational activities to showcase “Traditional Marriage”. Here are just a few zany highlights:
· Arrange my marriage!: Do you have a single daughter? Are you concerned about her future? Then join us while our esteemed organist, Miss Rapture plays her own rendition of “Single Ladies” on the Wurlitzer as we pull photos from a boy grab bag and girl grab bag to arrange the perfect marriage! This one is sure to fill up quickly so please add your progeny’s name to the sign-up list and bring a 5X7 photo with your child’s name written in indelible ink on the back.
· Count the Wives: Think you know how many wives each biblical man had? The rules are simple, we give you a name. You shout out a number. Easy peasy right? But wait: one is rarely the answer. How many wives did Solomon have? Don’t even get us started, LOL!
· Take my widow… Please? Have a childless, widowed Sister-In-Law? Join this discussion group and help a sister out. Are you confused by Leviticus and Deuteronomy’s conflicting advice on the subject? Marry her; don’t marry her, what’s a brother to do? We’ll discuss the finer points and bring a conclusion to this interesting and perplexing conundrum.
· Medieval Marriage Cake Walk: Political intrigue! Secrets! War! Royalty! Are you a pawn, a knight, a king or a queen? (not that kind…LOL) This game will be sure to please and enlighten you to the mystery of medieval marriages when women were sold like property to create strategic political alliances. Sound like chess? It is! If you get check-mate then you’re going home with one of Miss Lou Ann’s tasty wedding cakes!Now all of this tom foolery in the name of good old fashioned values will be sure to leave you famished. You’ll be pleased to know that Miss Green’s delicious shrimp salad will be for sale and now for the surprise news…. Chick-Fil-A will serve chicken sandwiches dripping in their brand new Antigé sauce! Sounds French, but you’ll forgive them for that when you try this new devilishly hot sauce that puts the “ate” back in hate!
Now, brothers and sisters some serious news; As you know there were some unfortunate photos that have surfaced of yours truly while I attempted to help some errant sheep get back over their fence. Miss Brown will be selling her beautiful cotton poly blend smocks to help raise funds for my court battle with PETA. You will love these dresses, stains don’t stick, they stay miraculously clean.So come on out! (Unless you’re gay)
