Organic church guys have goatees and wear peace symbol shirts? Institutional church guys wear ties? Hmmm.
The only christians (I say they are christians but the jury is still out on that one) I have met personally who wear peace symbols and have goatees are progressive/emergent church guys who eat butter pecan ice cream, think that abortion is not such a big deal, don’t believe that Paul’s writings are Scripture, detest personal hygiene, and have unicorn tattoos on their ankles.
The institutional guy, he does wear a tie. But you should have drawn him carrying a KJV Bible with an attractive leather carrying case. And a WWJD? bracelet.
That second paragraph is amazingly absurd!
Of course that second paragraph would seem amazingly absurd.
You mentioned before, in a previous post, something about those ‘organic church dill-heads’. Can you give specific examples of this ‘dill-headedness’?
I loved your comment, it was hilarious! unicorns and butter pecan ice cream, that’s great!
The phrase I used was “organic church self-righteous dillholes,” which was not meant to apply to all organic church folks, just the ones that are self-righteous dillholes. I think I was particularly talking about the people who get hung up and dogmatic on how people use the word church.
Scratch that, the word church was the topic of another post, this one was about them being unwilling to even entertain the idea of going to church.
Lol. I found the goatee/peace symbol bit to be quite amusing myself (being an organic-church guy who has often sported a goatee). No peace symbol personally though.
I’m glad you liked it, I love dealing in broad generalizations and stereotypes, it helps me make lots of friends! I would probably wear a goatee if I could grow a mustache, but sadly just a chinstrap for me. Anything is better than the soul patch, though.
Dan, all of them are either bald or shave their heads.
I love the irony of the cartoon.
There is irony about dress codes in my own life…many decades ago I was a (small) part of a very institutional…or should I say controlling…church that required all its leaders to wear three-piece suits. Now I’m in a far less institutional church where shaved heads and tattoos are very common and I am the only one who wears a tie….which I do because I have a closet full of BRIGHT ones and, since retiring, have no other place to show them off. The awesome thing is that the present group provides reverse-acceptance without batting an eye…not the case in those early days.
I like ties. I used to wear them to work, but don’t at my new job. Sometimes I wish I still did. There aren’t enough opportunities to wear a tie nowadays!
The whole “reverse-acceptance” thing you mentioned, you can’t really say you embrace everyone if you reject the tie-wearing crowd (and by you I mean the generic you, not you specifically)!
Interesting! I know a dill hole who used to scoff at the term ‘church’. He was a peach: )
Sounds like a real dink.
He’s mellowed with age.
i wish i head a pickle head
