Deeply disturbing.

And that’s why we’re giving this one its very own post.

Time to introduce you to: Hey Christian Girl

  1. Well, I can’t click the like button. As you say, deeply disturbing.

    • Apparently it makes more sense if you know the “Hey Girl” website. What I find most disturbing is that the contributors have an extremely intimate awareness of Evangelical subculture, yet don’t see anything wrong with going ahead with this.

  2. I laughed so hard I cried, and then I cried some more. Seriously, don’t take this too seriously. There’s all kinds of people out there just trying to get a rise out of Christians, and having fun while they’re doing it. The best thing we can do is just ignore them, or laugh with them. Either of this will tell them it’s not going to work. Let them have their fun. There are more serious things to deal with than this. Just my opinion, I’m sure a lot of Christian’s will get their feelings working up over this, and end up drawing way more attention to it than it would have gotten otherwise, as is always the case with anything controversially anti-Christian. We do such a poor job just ignoring the stupid stuff, and letting things roll off our shoulders. No wonder people think we’re too uptight.

    • I don’t deny some of the posts on the site are quite funny. But maybe a few cross a line, and perhaps diminish women (esp. Christian women) in the process. Again, this is the product of Evangelical “insiders” which makes it all the more unusual. Some people blog. Some people plant trees. Some people volunteer at the shelter. These guys did this. Maybe it’s just that satire in 2012 takes different forms.

      • I certainly only read a few, and I would never condone this kind of thing. It demeans both sexes. I’m curious, how do you know it’s the product of Christians? That would surprise me.

    • I needed a full day to think about that one. My quick response would have been to say that it’s because of the references; I mean a book like Captivating doesn’t exactly get the press of Your Best Life Now, or Purpose Driven Life.

      However, as a Canadian, I’m forgetting how pervasive Christian Culture is in the U.S. and really, just about anybody has access to insider information.

      But then again, I’m sticking to my original theory, that these guys are insiders.
