The 30 Second Kneel Down dumb down
Tom and Cindy Sipling, from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania have a strong desire to see God touch the high school campus. So they concocted the 30 Second Kneel Down – calling 1,051,200 youth to kneel each day at their locker for 30 seconds of prayer, equivalent to one year’s worth of prayer going up for the campus each day youth are at school.
The 30kd even has a creed. But of course it does. Teenagers who fall to their knees do so accepting that Jesus is both “God”… and man. Somewhat like Superman. But without the cool designer branding. JC the G comes in a jellaba, a cloak with a hood. Somewhat like Bill Watterson’s kid cartoon character Calvin’s Stupendous Man, I suppose.
Teenagers who fall to their knees accept creation, miracles, the virgin birth, the bodily resurrection and ascension and that JC the G will soon come afetchin’ us all to eternal life – some in bedizened ‘hoods of silver and gold and emeralds behind pearly gates; some in hellfire.
Teenagers are dumbed down even at school by this preposterous and ludicrous nonsense arrogating as ideology. Adults who fuck with young minds in this way should be subject to the same penalties prescribed for drug dealers. They should be removed from society.
I’m not even going to comment further.
But to add that according to the Apostolic Faith Mission in South Africa, the 30kd is a sign from JC the G Himself – “And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” (Malachi 4.vi) No, don’t ask me, I can’t see the connection either.
The South African daily Beeld reports that 30kd is already well established in at least one South African school – the Afrikaanse Hoërskool Sasolburg.
To be reborn is to be born without a brain. I propose a deal for the religious: Don’t let kids pray in school and I’ll get them not to think in church.
How about it, wackos?
