I'm a good Christian. I own a juicer.*

via supergee, a conservative Christian blogger comments on how to be a good Christian wife.

Having read other posts on the site, and the W. quote in the subhead, I would be leaning toward calling this a parody. Except, apparently not. Please do continue through to other recent posts. I found them edifying.

I would ask that those chasing the link from my blog not flame the woman. Because, well. I think she's already got her hands full what with the makeup before the morning orange juice. And, a generous response to the misguided seems to me the Christian thing to do. Also the Buddhist one. (Pagans, Muslims, heathens, heretics, and Jews, of course, are free to follow their consciences and the teachings of their own faiths.)

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.** And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."

(Matthew 5:38-42, NIV)
Actually, I can make a case that she's right about the FCOJ/whoredom link. After all, those in lower socieconomic groups are both less likely to be able to afford/have easy availability of fresh fruit... and also more likely to resort to the sex trade as a means of earning a living. Of course, if the tips are good enough, you could probably afford fresh fruit.

*except for the Christian part.

**yes, I do know this could be construed as dropping him a moon, but I don't think that's what Jesus meant, yo.
