01:19 pm - From a comment left on jenarael's journal . . .
I do my best to avoid joking about Christianity, a religion I left a long time ago. It wasn't really like leaving. . . more like a prolonged breakup in which we're still friends, yet unsure how to act around one another. It's kind of uneasy. You know, we still see each other from time to time, I still remember the prayers (kinda like dancing to "our song") and have a lot of respect for Christianity's god (sorta like one has a respect for an ex-girlfriend's cool dad), but it's just mostly awkward.

I don't have a desire to go back, but I don't have a desire to burn the bridges, either. The awkwardness is strangely usual and normal to me. It doesn't bother me, really, it just makes me wonder what might have been.

I get that, really. Although Christianity and me parted on less than good terms and neither me nor it seem to be able to quite leave the relationship alone. To keep with the relationship analogy, its screwed up, but all of my relationships probably are.

Yes, most relationships are pretty screwed up, and I suspect that's not much different from most people's religions. Some leave them when they feel cheated, some leave them when they cheat. Some leave them because there's no communication, some leave because they just aren't trying hard enough. Some leave because the spark isn't there anymore. Some leave because thier church no longer looks sexy in skimpy lingerie.

I'm trying to visualise a church in lingerie, and I just can't. So that sorts out what I shall have to do tomorrow then.

Clearly, you have never been to *our* church...

I think I want to.

Oh, you must. I insist. Whenever there's a special day at school that requires what is often referred to as "church clothes," I can barely contain the glee. Should I wear the sparkly evening gown, the peek-a-boo lingerie, the bodice that serves up the mammaries on a platter, or maybe just the furry satyr trousers with the erect phallus attached? Decisions, decisions.

Its all such good stuff. I'd probably just have to go with my demon worshipping gear. But that gets so boring after the first few times.

visualising a church in lingerie

Proof that wearing lingerie makes it more difficult to visualise churches.

Re: visualising a church in lingerie

And that was a mental image I'm sure no-one needed.

I'm going to be having nightmares tonight!

Re: visualising a church in lingerie

"The Church Wore Lingerie." Sounds like a futuristic detective story to me. Maybe the church has an avatar (kind of like Andromeda) that wears lingerie? Or maybe we're dealing with a shape-shifter who is sometimes a building and sometimes a person.

Ooh, the possibilities are endless...
