Sabbath Services: TV

Recreating (and advancing) pk’s censored domains: & / Teaching / Society / NoHier / Theme Buds / Media /

It’s been rainy in England. Wimbledon tennis matches have been rained out, rescheduled. Normally the fortnight of tennis takes the middle Sunday off as a day of rest. This year they’re playing, trying to catch up. I figured NBC coverage would be on this afternoon. Still, there was a change some would be on live, that is, this morning. So I turned on Catherine’s TV on a Sunday morning for the first time in … decades. Ah, no. Of course. Sunday services: probably on every major channel. Some preacher talking about God? No, silly; Newt Gingrich talking about US and Iraq: God and Satan: this bicentennial’s god, this couple of years’ devil.
Jews observe Saturday morning: the seventh day, as the weekly anniversary of God resting after Creation. TV has Saturday Sabbath services too: cartoons. The upright primate mammal vs. the dragons: snakes, monsters … generally reptilian.

When did I write that? early 2000s probably, late ’90s.


About pk

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
