From the Autumn edition of The Anglican Digest:
It's All In Her GenesReally. On page 20. Of a publication that says its "goal is to connect the Church by gathering articles that tell the vital story of our faith."
It's all in her genes
She likes to say
Won't go away.
Yes, look from behind
To see what she means
No doubt that you'll find
It's all in her JEANS.

I'm wondering what "vital story of our faith" this one tells. Unless it's to remind us that sexism is alive and well -- which of course it is.
But if indeed that was the point -- and this is me now bending my credibility into a pretzel to "presume positive intent" -- surely there's a better way to "tell that vital story" than a not-very-clever ditty that perpetuates the objectification of women.
Yep. Makes the heart sad, all right. And if you think so, too, then take a minute and click here to let the Editor of The Anglican Digest hear from you.
