We’ve now reached the point where we believe the guy who just branched his megachurch into West Seattle is only talking trashily to get attention. And yet, since he wants to fill our neighborhoods with his followers, we feel duty-bound to keep you updated on his utterances. Thanks to Slog for spotlighting the latest: Pastor Preposterous suggests that his colleagues like Colorado’s Mr. “It Was Only a Massage” might sin less, if their wives didn’t “let (themselves) go.” And don’t miss the passage where he recommends employment discrimination against women as another way to stay out of trouble (and reveals he’s afraid of reading e-mail from anyone but his henchpeople, lest temptation lurk between the pixels). Ladies, cover yourselves; that’s coming next. Never mind the $212 jeans; might as well start asking our Junction boutiques to start stocking burqas.
