Panty Parties

According to ReligionNewsBlog.com, Elissa Kroeger ("...we trying to make a political statement with our clothing?" - see the bottom of this post or MNObserver's take on it over at The Power Liberal) shouldn't be quite so concerned about the political statement overalls make, and should be more concerned about the statement she's making underneath those overalls.

The Rev Jan Harney, a Church of England cleric in Manchester who also works for Activate, said that she wanted Christians to relax, have fun and to get to know people before trying to convert them." I have not conducted a lingerie party myself, but when Bridget Jones was all the rage I know that some Christian groups were holding knickers parties," she said. "To be honest, I am not sure what happened at those. Nobody has told me.

...

The Bishop of Bolton, the Rt Rev David Gillett, said: "They are the modern version of the Tupperware party and they are a natural way for women to meet. They can lead to a discussion of themes such as Adam and Eve and relations between people and God."

That's right...knickers parties...lingerie parties for the glory of Christ! Suck your neighbors into a panty party then drop a copy of the Good Book into the order - make sure to keep it away from anything crotchless. Next thing you know MNObserver will be recommending that lefties all get together to have sex toy parties just so they can stay ahead of the curve.

Of course, maybe they're all promoting these chastity underwear (link to actual site) at the parties (I figured chastitywear was, de facto, what Elissa's overalls were), in which case it's really rather pointless.

Chastity thongs and "hot shorts"? Are they confused?
