Never on a Sunday, a Sunday, a Sunday...
Perhaps never -- especially on the blessed Sabbath -- would folks expect to find the kind of nitty-gritty stuff that Bible Girl (nee: Julie Lyons, before she was married to her new nom de plume) exposes in her excellent Bible Girl: The Unfair Park Religion Column.
Julie "Bible Girl" Lyons is a Dallas Observer editor and blogger, growing increasingly popular beyond the free weekly alternative that's owned by the Village Voice.
I found Bible Girl thru the in-depth and also excellent Get Religion.
And I will never lose Bible Girl again.
Because Julie Lyons is the real deal.
She's a Christian that exposes her own wanton sin, and a quick peek thru her posts shows that Julie Lyons isn't afraid to tackle the stuff the Pharisee-set stays away from: sinning pastors, greedy ones, and frank discussions about lust.
Neither is Bible Girl afraid to say she's fed up with movies that display a 12-year-old girl getting raped nor give her thoughts on accounts of real-life bestiality.
I've yet to dig thru all of the Bible Girl's posts, but my favorite thus far is when Julie Lyons writes about her own struggles with homosexuality and her downright blatant powerful healing thru it -- stuff we need more bloggers to confess.
Guess I'm talking to myself there.
Julie Lyons has inspired me even more to stop fawning to the fake Christians who believe that Jesus' message was to get all dressed up in our Sunday finest then look down our noses at any behavior on our long list of offenses that we deem un-Christ-like.
They come off more like Dana Carvey's hilarious "Church Lady", driving more folks away from the cross than to it.
Now if someone would just forward me a pic of Julie Lyons -- I've just emailed the Bible Girl herself for one -- I'll plop my new favorite writer right here...
