*My late father never cared much for people’s feelings when it came to speaking his truth.
He once told me that, in his opinion, “church folk” only knew how to do two things: eat fried chicken and wait for Jesus to come back.
Dad would have had a field day with this story!
“Weight is something that many people have to deal with,” the guidelines read. “Make sure that you are taking care of your temple, exercising and eating properly.”
The church later apologized, writing on its website “Forgive us if we offended anyone. That certainly was not our intention. These guidelines have never been used to discriminate against anyone and have never been enforced.”
Why have guidelines if they’re not enforced? Questions that make you go “hmmmmm.”
And there’s no such thing as a fat man or woman of the cloth, right?
