    Dancing is mentioned in Ecclesiastes 3, the “time for everything” chapter, including “a time to dance.”

    Also, David danced to celebrate Israel's victory
    And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

    Yeah, I know a college that just somewhat recently allowed female students to wear pants. I think they've finally had one dance and it was such a big deal it made the newspapers.

    I know it doesn't say "no drinking" in the bible. Jesus turned water into fucking wine, for christ's sake.

    This. And David was a man after God's own heart. Partly because he danced.

    Oh believe me, in theory the evangelical types (Baptists, etc) are completely against dancing and most especially the kind that you would find in a night club. Not to mention the consumption of alcohol. Engaging in any of this is forbidden (and they might as well have been caught in a whore house) because such acts promote/constitute "lewd and lascivious" behavior. Never mind that they are low-key engaging in this behavior all the fucking time and sometimes at a much greater level than non-religious.

    Hypocritical? Of course. Un-Christian? Definitely. In the south where unfortunately religion still outweighs common sense they're still able to suck enough money off people to profit. For now.

    But regularly being busted for being corrupt ass hypocrites is what turns many people raised in and around these environments off to religion altogether. Which, in my opinion is the main purpose for the existence of these fringe-y groups.

    Keep on being hypocritical, corrupt douchebags, evang-ies!

    I remember being made to sing hymns at school assembly every day and Lord of the Dance was a regular choice.
