It started in California, the Azuza Street Revival, and it was put on by an entertainment business not a Church denomination.
But let’s not be judgemental here – let’s use the Principle of Charity and interpret things in the best possible light.
“I wasn’t ever able to say I was ‘lucky’ because my mother would rather us say that we were blessed, and she also didn’t like that lucky sounded like Lucifer. Deviled eggs were called ‘angeled’ eggs. I wasn’t allowed to eat Lucky Charms, but I think that was the sugar. I think my mom lied to me about that one.”
OK Mom tells her little girl, no you can’t have Lucky Charms it’s devil food. I know a Mom who always told her daughter that the candy in the check out aisle is “only for fat people.”
These are not lies – these are truths told in a way a child can understand. When you observe people having arguments about such things, you are dealing with one or two things:
- Moms – who are women, let’s not forget – with their claws out cat-fighting with each other over who is the Better Mom. Best to just stay out of it.
- Autistic White Men who have decided to autistically make autistic rules about things that normal people just know intuitively. The Red Scare podcast chick said this in the last show; men are always trying to come up with autistic rules and long winded explanations for things women understand intuitively.
Same thing with “angeled eggs.” That is two things. One, if the devil is bad, why would you tell your kids “here eat Devil’s Food.” Every parent knows the very next thing that happens:
“I ate Devil food! Now I’m the Devil, watch me run around and scream and break things and laugh hysterically I’m the Devil hahah whiiiiirrrrrr!”
Second, there is a bit of bowdlerization here. But – so what? That is what you do with kids. The real question is, why are people making such a big deal about such things?
“Yeah, my parents convinced me that a man dressed in a red suit came down the chimney and gave me presents. They were LYING LIARS! My parents tricked me horrifically – there was no man in a red suit, it was grandpa who brought the presents after I went to bed. My parents were so abusive. We must stamp out this horrible superstition so another child doesn’t suffer!”
It is of the same piece with the Jews always saying “yeah all the Italian kids called me “kike” on the playground now I must get my revenge on the flyover goyim so another sensitive Jewish boys doesn’t get called a mean name on the playground and plotz in his kishka.”
I wasn’t ever able to say I was ‘lucky’ because my mother would rather us say that we were blessed
OK – so mom tells her, “don’t say you are lucky, because luck is random. Say you are blessed and be thankful when something good happens.”
Is this really so awful? Is this some horrific narrow-minded superstition?
If this were a Black Mother saying this, it would be praised in the same media blogs as “Wise Women Wisdom Of Color.”
But since it’s a working class white family and the religious in Christianity, being thankful for a lucky break is some sort of Right-Wing Christian Fundamentalism?
The real problem is this:
Perry’s parents – Mary Christine and Maurice Keith Hudson – are Pentecostal pastors.
I see two problems right there: Pentecostal, and women pastors.
Perry – who has been a diehard supporter of the Democratic Party – also has the word “Jesus” tattooed on her wrist.
I don’t like that Katie Perry was sexually trafficked out of her white American Christian homeland and pimped out to Hollywood to write songs about threesomes that appeal to teenage girls. She’s quite pretty, maybe not the sharpest knife in the drawer but she sure can sing nice.
The video and the song are pornography, fucking to this song is hot and perfect, that is what it is for. Or dancing, which is foreplay.
You know all Second Lady Tipper Gore wanted was to put “Parental Advisory” stickers on this stuff so Moms would know not to buy it for their kids so ten year olds won’t be saying “face down ass up that’s the way we like to fuck” before they even know what any of it means.
Or, saying “all us niggas want to hit that ass” or whatever.
But no, “Satanic Panic” it’s the “Christian Right” coming for trans children! Plus objecting to hip hop is racist, but also your white kids singing to hip hop is also racist – so there you go, racist! Serves you right for being born white!
Now tell me – were the feminists right? Andrea Nolen has done amazing work on the early “beauty contests” – popularized by the new mass electronic media of the earliest 20th century – finding Small Town Girls Next Door and sending them to New York to be “models” also known as “prostitutes.”
Then filming her and showing the films to her home town they got her from. That is where “Hollywood Celebrities” come from. Marilyn Monroe fucked both the President and his brother and they have a historical film clip of her singing to him.
You think that’s bad? Go read some James LaFond on “grain slaves” and how the Appalachian old growth were felled!
Can you imagine if they did this to a Jewish girl?
Oh wait – they did. See Amy Winehouse.
