I continue not getting it.

Go here and read the post and comments.

What am I missing?

I understand this book cover is not “sexy” and probably won’t sell a bunch of books.
Okay.

But seriously? Are we dogging this woman because she’s old and not “hot”?

This attitude kills me. I’m sick of not saying anything about it anymore.

God save us from being above it all and cool.

UPDATE:
Turner has taken the blog post down. I’m assuming b/c he thought better of it, not b/c he just got tired of taking grief about it.

UPDATE 2:
Received a nice email from Turner explaining/apologizing, which he didn’t have to do (as I wasn’t the old lady getting ridiculed in the comments). I’m just glad he took down the tasteless post.
He has posted a notice, as well, and some of his readers are upset he “caved.” (sigh)

    Yet they’ll wonder why Christians are called hypocrites.

  2. Doug says:

    It’s a good thing we young people are avoiding Pharisaical attitudes. It would be terrible for old, unhot people to go around sharing their “wisdom” or “life experience” or “guidance” with us… I’m glad we’ve been liberated from all that…

    Thank you for speaking up about this. It’s no wonder people see the Church as exclusive when we publicly make fun of those who don’t look “just right.”
