You have probably already seen this, but if not, here it is:

I was touched by this.  It’s supposed to be funny, but it’s more than that.  It is a bunch of kids who put a lot of effort, and courage, into making a special event for the marriage of their friends, and celebrating their union.

It is a bunch of kids who put a lot of effort, and courage, into making a special event for the marriage of their friends, and celebrating their union.

This being the internet, I am required to vehemently and self-righteously disagree and tell you that this sort of thing, in a House of God, no less, is indicative of the moral decay that is destroying our society.

2. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

I thought it was cute too. Was very surprised at a bunch of commenters at AoS who got their panties in a wad over it though.

3. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

HAH

4. Edward Von Bear - July 27, 2009

Dave:

That is yet another reason I seldom comment at AoS anymore.

But, yeah, this was nice. My beef is that my (hopefully) soon to be former employer’s owner’s son is getting married soon, and has been playing this over and over for the last few days.

With the sound up.

At 10.

Over and over.

Did I say over and over?

5. Random Internet Prig who is required to look down on everything everybody does - July 27, 2009

HAH

You, Mr. in Texas, if that is your real name, are also, in large part, a contributing factor to this society’s continuing march down the path of it’s inevitable destruction from within, what with your credulous acceptance of this type of blasphemous effrontery and your blind acceptance of the most pernicious, impious behavior.

6. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Blind acceptance? Hell I encourage it.

Society doesn’t stand a chance.

Michael - July 27, 2009

You, Mr. in Texas, if that is your real name . . .

Actually, his real name is just Dave Texas. The “in” is fake.

7. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

>> The “in” is fake

That’s a sensitive topic to me sir.

Likely because of how often I heard “is it ‘in’ yet?”

8. lauraw - July 27, 2009

Somebody actually had a problem with this nifty new wedding trend?

9. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Yes, a few Scoldy McScolderson’s over at AoS lamented the “scandalous/disrepectful behavior” in a church. Not many just a few loudmouths.

You know the type. You’d rather smack your thumb with a hammer than drink a beer with them.

Hey Calvinist! Remember when King David brought the ark back? He danced with joy before the Lord and his robe flew up and he showed his ASS. His first wife was all up in his tits about that too, I forget her name, you know the one though.

The one he never fucked again.

10. lauraw - July 27, 2009

Hey, I’m all for pomp and decorum too, whatever floats the couple’s boat right?

It’s their day.

What’s for lunch today?

11. Random Internet Prig who is required to look down on everything everybody does - July 27, 2009

The “in” is fake.

Much like the level of so-called “maturity” and “morality” on exhibit here.

You heretics will all burn in Hell.

Burn!!! BURN!!! BURNNNNN!!!!!

GAD, I love being morally superior!!!

12. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Exactly so. Ain’t my wedding. Although one commenter actually went there, saying it wasn’t “their” day, it was for all the guests and relatives.

Yeah. Just like the honeymoon is for everybody else. Please.

Lunch? hmmmmmm. Some fried chicken from Ervin’s sounds pretty good right now.

13. wiserbud - July 27, 2009

What’s for lunch today?

cucumber sandwiches?

14. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Oh. It was Michal. Had to look it up.

Odd how she despised David at that moment (not all the time, she did love him, even saved his life from her crazy dad once), for humbling himself before God. She thought he was “actin the foo” when he was pouring out joy and gratitude to God.

15. lauraw - July 27, 2009

Way ahead of ya Wiser. Yesterday was RB & cucumber, today is Turkey & cucumber. If you talk to the spousal unit today please ask her to check her email?

16. wiserbud - July 27, 2009

If you talk to the spousal unit today please ask her to check her email?

YER NOT THE BOSS OF ME!!!!

Ummmm, I mean… sure. Be happy to.

🙂

17. reason - July 27, 2009

Dave – I pointed out the stuff you reference above to a Church of Christ girl I dated in college, when she told me that the group she worshipped with did not dance or use instruments other than their voices in praise.

The best she could muster up was some mumbling about how I was Catholic and didn’t “have the right Bible” anyway…

The things we put up with for a pretty face…

18. wiser-bubba - July 27, 2009

Anyway, like I was sayin’, cucumber is the shrimp of the land. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, cucumber-kabobs, cucumber creole, cucumber gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple cucumber, lemon cucumber, coconut cucumber, pepper cucumber, cucumber soup, cucumber stew, cucumber salad, cucumbers and potatoes, cucumber burger, cucumber sandwich……..

19. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Their claim is they model the early Christian church in worship using the New Testament as their guidelines. I don’t have any particlar beef with it, I get where they’re coming from. It’s a “silent” claim, so I don’t feel particularly bound by it.

20. Michael - July 27, 2009

It ain’t church if there’s no organ music. That’s according to God. It’s in the Bible. I forget where.

21. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

The first century church dint have no indoor plumbing either, ya know?

22. Edward Von Bear - July 27, 2009

Michael:

I think it was somewhere in the back. At least in my version.

23. wiserbud - July 27, 2009

I think it was somewhere in the back.

Right next to the part about wearing ties and stuff.

24. lauraw - July 27, 2009

The first century church dint have no indoor plumbing either, ya know?

I wonder if the first time they put modern bathrooms in a church, there was any discussion of whether it was appropriate.

25. reason - July 27, 2009

Ugh. If it’s a mandate for ties and uncomfortable dress shoes, then it’s DEFINITELY in Revelations…

26. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

>> I wonder if the first time they put modern bathrooms in a church, there was any discussion of whether it was appropriate.

I’m sure there was a committee. Baptists can’t put a new flower decoration in front of the podium without a friggin committee.

27. lauraw - July 27, 2009

“…but Fred, people will be defecating in God’s House…it’s an abomination!”

28. reason - July 27, 2009

Laura – first it was indoor plumbing, then electricity. Now I can’t think of the last church I visited that didn’t have the little “isolation chamber” for the contemporary-worship-service drummer off in the corner.

:/

If there wasn’t a discussion, there should’ve been.

Back in my day, Mom made us all go to the 7:00am “plainchant” Mass…and we liked it!

29. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Pfff. Not me. I don’t like our toilet paper.

I’m sure I can track down that committee though and give em a talkin to.

30. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Nah, the drum cubicle is just a sound engineering thing. Acoustic drums (you know, actual skins and cymbals and stuff) tend to overpower the sound mix. So you put a little sound-dampening wall around them and mic the drums and stuff and push that through the PA with the rest of the instruments and voices.

That’s why a lot of places go with electronic drumsets (well that and space). Doesn’t introduce the echo problems quite so much.

You see the same thing with drumsets in recording studios, sometimes they’re even set up in a completely isolated room.

31. Third Baptist Church of Dave's City Committee on Necessary Services and Facilities - July 27, 2009

You’ll use the paper we provide, and you’ll like it, Dave!

Those evil red bears, and their penchant for waving their sparkly-clean buttocks on national television, are just another medium through which Satan is corrupting our children! Sure, they are cartoons now, but once the cartoon-bear bottoms become accepted, what will be next?

32. reason - July 27, 2009

I understand and appreciate the acoustical necessity of the isolation chamber.

I’m simply expressing personal lack of taste for the penchant for half-hour-rock-concert contemporary worship services. They aren’t my thing, and I wanted to take a chiding shot at them. If only they had kept plumbing out of God’s House, then I wouldn’t have to endure a ten-minute butchering of “Ain’t No Grave.”

33. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Ah. I stand corrected.

Me and my bass guitar on Sunday mornings. Heh.

34. reason - July 27, 2009

I mean no offense to you or your bass, my musical buddy.

I will think of you next time 90.9 plays some Selah.

35. Pie in - July 27, 2009

I think it’s cute. Weddings are usually so focused on the bride and groom- their moment, their pictures, etc. Boring. If the wedding is solely for the bride and groom, they shouldn’t invite anyone.

Anyone watch that Bridezilla show? I’ve already warned my chillens.

Heathen.

37. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

Hahahaha. None taken sir!

Although I have been guilty of playing the bass riff of Pink Floyd’s Money when we pass the plate.

Once.

38. Random Internet Prig who is required to look down on everything everybody does - July 27, 2009

Although I have been guilty of playing the bass riff of Pink Floyd’s Money when we pass the plate.

NOT FUNNY!!!!

Okay, that’s a little funny, but I’M NOT LAUGHING!!!! Well, not out loud, anyway.

DAMMIT, Look at what you disgusting pagans have done now!!! I was better than you! I need to be better than you!!! But now I have found something blasphemous to be humorous!!!

The Sanctimony!! I’m losing it!! How will I ever go on???

Oh, what a world, what a world…….

39. wiserbud - July 27, 2009

dammit.

40. reason - July 27, 2009

Nice! How many noticed?

41. reason - July 27, 2009

There’s a hole in your sockpuppet, man…

42. Michael - July 27, 2009

Although one commenter actually went there, saying it wasn’t “their” day, it was for all the guests and relatives.

Well, in that video all the guests and relatives are laughing, applauding, and having a great time. I think entertaining the guests and relatives was exactly what that wedding party was trying to do. I admire them.

43. Michael - July 27, 2009

By the way, somewhere somehow I got the idea that the story of David and Michal, which DiT referred to, is the scriptural basis for the Shaker sect. I guess they got the idea that shakin’ your booty in church was not only OK, is was some kind of sacrament.

They were celibate, so you can kinda understand that they needed to burn off some energy.

44. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2009

>> Nice! How many noticed?

More than I wanted to, including Mrs. D in T. She didn’t think it was nearly as funny as I did. Course, that happens from time to time with my sense of humor.

hahahaha on wiserprig

45. Mrs. Peel - July 27, 2009

So, I guess I can piss everyone off by saying that it’s cute and all, but would have been more appropriate at the reception rather than in the church. Score!
