Thursday: offensive poetry, chess tactics, potpourri and nonsense
Just kidding! I found this kinky little item a few days back and I could not resist the temptation to include it in one of my blog entries. Ira North (1922-1984) was a Southern preacher and TV evangelist for the Churches of Christ and who , among other things, appeared frequently on ‘Amazing Grace Bible Class’ where he made a reputation for himself preaching colourful lessons such as ‘If I were a woman’…
“It’s one big clueless (and hopelessly dated) misogynistic rant in the guise of a folksy sermon (like on just about every Southern religious sermon record, where if it wasn’t white, Protestant, straight and male, it was to be subjugated.) Ira North sure thinks he’s a sweet funny preacher. And perhaps he was considered that in the Deep South of the late 1950s and early ’60s before the Civil Rights Act, Women’s Liberation and Stonewall. But his screed back then sounds vomit-inducing amongst the more evolved amongst us today.”
