In today’s news, a young Christian woman has launched a Pole Fitness For Jesus class. It’s an opportunity for religious women to put on high heels and dance around a stripper pole while Christian music is playing. The high heels are important because it’s better for your legs, the instructor will tell you. (Not so great for ankles, a podiatrist will tell you.)
I don’t doubt that hanging on to a pole can develop your upper body (a chin up bar had already taught us that) but I’m not completely comfortable with dancing all-sexy while Sandy Patty sings about the Lord.
Naturally, the journalist decided she too should get in on the act, (at some point in the field of journalism we all got the idea that every wants to see the reporter get in on the act, it helps viewers ‘relate’and the newsroom often finds it hilarious.) Oh, and don’t think for one minute that the news director didn’t know exactly which reporter they were going to send out on this assignment.
