Egads.

the reverend mommy said...

I'm speechless.

My question: How did you find this?

Identity Mixed said...

It's all in the choreography.

Helps when there is a supposed Latin lover in the middle of two babes to reach people with the message of Jebus.

Ew. Feels like televangelistic Baptist to me.

I couldn't watch the whole thing- tech probs, not revulsion, though that may have happened. But it was enough!
There's a local t.v. station that shows a worship service where during the singing the men walk around in a circle and the women dance around, barefoot and with tambourines, in another circle. The circline goes on for ages (longer than I can stand to watch it) but the participants look so conservative. It's the strangest thing.

Like a train wreck, I couldn't look away... I had to research a little more about the organization behind this video. As it turns out it isn't worship (thank Gawd), but a clip from a concert. But still... yikes.

Rev Kim said...

Oh, my eyes! My eyes!

I don't think I would've have believed it, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

I just figured out that they were supposed to be on America's Best Dance Crew but the street evangelists got to them first

Please tell that this is not a new form of liturgical dancing. Please.

Teri said...

oh dear. I feel disturbed. How am I supposed to go on with my day?

Althea N. Agape said...

One begins to understand why some Baptists are against dancing.

Rev Dr Mom said...

Yikes. Just yikes.

Perhaps they were trying out for the Ecumenical Disco.

Sue said...

I used to watch that show every Sunday night with my grandma.

Wait...wasn't that Bobby and Cissy from Lawrence Welk? No???

Seriously???

WTF?

I did not know one could moonwalk their way into the Kingdom.

My atheist teen will be so thrilled.

Towanda said...

Wherever that way is going...I'm not.

so bad, so many ways.

Melissa said...

The really bad thing - it's a catchy little tune...gets stuck in your head like a bad dream.
My favorite part was the little twirl with the hands...if that were my church I'd leave right then and there concert or worship!

Beach Walkin said...

I with cheese... I felt like I was watching Lawrence Welk on Jesus. That was strange... and disturbing. Did you see that when they twirled... the skirts did not show their knees? Could watch it all... I think I might be sick.
