Christian Influencer, Paul Olliges of the Morgan and Paul Show, is upset bodies are cool, which I guess is better than being jealous over your unborn child? Peak Biblical masculinity right there, folks.
Embarrassingly, I’ve been too preoccupied with video games, which obviously left me no time to blog. I was playing Sekiro but after dying literally one billion times I rage quit and then alas! Forbidden West came out so that was the end of me pretending I was going to do anything productive for the next few months. Fortunately, the weather is warming which means I’ll be hitting the trail more regularly and not sitting in front of a screen. What I’m really saying is – this annoyed me enough to rouse me from my gaming hermitage.
Interestingly, Paul’s reasoning for warning his followers against reading Bodies Are Cool to their kids is because it’s “aggressively” LGBT+whatever and non-binary, or something. Given this mere children’s book triggered him enough to post about it online, naturally I was curious to see what the book was about. Also, like honestly if he didn’t want people reading this he should’ve like… not posted about it? Truly, of all the problems in the world, is that really the worst thing your child could be learning about?
It took me 5 seconds to find this book online, which is about how long it would’ve taken him to actually read it.
Other than the person wearing a rainbow shirt at the end (which to preschool aged children and generally anyone who likes color literally means nothing) the book mentions nada about being gay or non-binary, or whatever, so… I’m confused at his claim the books is aggressively pro-lgbtq+ as that either indicates he didn’t actually read the book, or he’s lying (a sin) because he was getting too much smoke about it from his followers given the book is generally just about how different types of bodies with different hair types, skin colors and textures, disabilities, etc. are cool which is a pretty harmless message for kids.
Having seen the book’s contents, it’s obvious Paul construes the acknowledgement of women having body hair, which is pretty prominently displayed throughout the book, as some liberal ideology, which no. That’s not some non-binary agenda, that is literally how God made women… with hair on their legs, underarms, and sometimes faces. Society has convinced women these things are somehow wrong when God Almighty Himself put them there. So even though I wear make-up and shave lol, if we’re gonna be literal here, from a Biblical perspective, it makes the most sense for women to not wear make-up, nor shave because that is our natural state and how God made us. For a dude always going on and on about how not giving birth to children is unnatural and gonna end humanity and husbands taking their wives last name is wrong (which there is literally no Biblical basis for a wife to take a husband’s last name) he seems awfully cherry-pick-ish about which things he claims are natural and right.
The Bible says, “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal,” the latter of which describes Paul Olliges. Almost everything he says wreaks of moral superiority and smugness, rather than humility and love. Humility is recognizing all of us fall short of the glory of God and need redemption as Romans 3:23 states, and that Paul is no holier than any unbeliever because of his actions, rather it is through Christ alone that he and all Christians are sanctified.
Unfortunately, modern Christians have chosen to roll around the mud with conservatives and sling dirt at liberals online for attention, therefore Paul will likely continue posting stuff like this in an attempt to be “anti-woke” instead of like Christ.
