Living Church of God and Rod McNair Go βαλλιστικός Over Greek Themed Party





On June 22 there was a comment on the LCG Collecting Facebook Screenshots of Members? thread describing how McNair and League demanded that several LCG members take down photo's they had put up on Facebook of a party they had attended.  It seems some LCG members had recently returned from Greece and decided to throw a Greek themed party.  In most of society this would not even ring any alarms or raise an eyebrow.  However.....we are talking about a Church of God now and things are NOT normal in most Churches of God, particularly in the Living Church of God.  Power and control must be maintained over the sheeple at all times.  They must never think outside the box or have fun without the permission of a minister!

McNair and League personally approached me and told me to remove pics of church members (ministers included) from my Facebook page.

The pics were of families. There was nothing crazy or inappropriate going on in any of them. Just mothers and fathers with their kids enjoying fellowship on a Sunday night.

"What's wrong with that?" you might ask. Well I'll tell you.

The host and hostess of this get-together had just returned from a trip to Greece. The party was Greek-themed and the guests came dressed as Greeks (aka togas). Apparently wearing a toga means you are engaging in an Animal House type fraternity party with drunken mayhem and other lude and lascivious behavior which "paints the LCH headquarters in a negative light". I was told that even if nothing bad happened at the party, "it was better to avoid the appearance of evil" so I needed to take the pics down asap.

Many others were also told to take the pics down. Some did. Some refused.

LCG headquarters (especially Richard Ames) believes that costumes are evil and that God's people should have no part in them. I was told that the Pagans used to wear costumes/ masquerade so that they could have orgy sex with each others wives without their identities actually being known. From that, coupled with the ever-evil Halloween, a true Christian can deduce that costumes are bad. Interestingly, other LCG congregations can engage in costume parties without retaliation. But in Charlotte not so much.

In true LCG form, there are different rules for different people.

I only wish I could share the pics with all of you so that you could see how harmless they were. Maybe I can email them to the blog owner and he can post them?

 

This same reader responded today with these pictures and comments:



The pics are relevant in that they are perfectly harmless. No booze or sexy outfits. Just families and their kids in modest costumes. We were all asked to take the pics off our FB pages because HQ's felt they made them "look bad". We were told to "avoid the appearance of evil".

I don't know about you but I don't see anything "evil" or embarrassing in them.

Let's be sure to thoroughly squelch any and all individuality or creativity in the lowly members. You may NOT express your personality in any way!!!

The mind who puts malice on such family oriented party is certainly malicious and has a mind full of sex thoughts. If they see malice in every moves and events, it only shows these neurotic people are sex starved.

What is more insane than the ideas of the LCG is people who also think it is insane, yet they stay in the LCG. Can there be any sympathy for these people?

I remember when this happened.

It made no sense to me because in Kansas City we have an official church chili dinner costume party around new year's eve every year.

I have also been to different themed/costumed parties at different members homes in KC.

Headquarters made such a big deal over this Greek party. I never understood why.

The poster is right. Different rules apply to different people in LCG.

For crying out loud, what do they think that Yahshua wore back in 30AD? Its time that these people cut the rope that is around their necks and bind themselves to the true Savior.

So... do members in Greece (if there are any) have to stop wearing their traditional clothes and get approved Western Wear?

Ames won't say "pot luck" meal. It's a "covered dish" meal. No such thing as luck so to say the word is evil and wrong. Crazy English language.

What clothes did Jesus wear? They were probably quite similar to the robes in these pics!

Richard Aames was quite an old man...

Who was renowned as a bit of a showman...

He despised Yoga...

and those dressed in a toga...

Convinced that they were a real Roman!

maybe these stick up the butt ministers need to get their wives to entertain them better. I am sure they would love to see their wives dressed up in togas, or maybe the problem is they don't want to see their wives but other peoples wives in togas. God please remove this temptation from my eyes and my brothers facebook site.

"Some ministers are the same way about motorcycles"

Probably because they are jealous because the farting sounds coming out of motorcycle exhaust pipes are louder and more toxic than what their own mouths spew.
