Today’s challenge comes from a reader who asked that we imagine that there’s a fundy television station coming to your town. What kind of shows might you expect to see featured?

Here are a few from the suggester to get you started:

    1. Two Broke Preacherboys
      A saga of how a bus kid and pastor’s kid (whose dad is in jail for molestation — of course, he is falsely accused) end up sharing the same dorm room and work their way through Bible college by starting a KJV bookstore.

    1. Here we come
      Walking down the street
      We get the funniest looks from
      Everyone we meet.

      Hey, hey we’re not from Monkees,
      We never, never monkey around.
      When we’re all out soul-winning,
      Knocking ev’ry door in town.

      We go wherever we want to,
      Do what we like to do.
      We know all about everything,
      Science ain’t for me nor you.

      Hey, hey we’re not from Monkees,
      We never, never monkey around.
      Our one goal in preaching
      Is to put everybody down.

      We’re just trying to be holy,
      Come back to yesterday.
      We’re the best generation,
      We don’t care what others say.

      Hey, hey we’re not from Monkees,
      We’re the least simian men around.
      So you’d better get ready,
      We may be comin’ to your town.

      Hey, hey we’re not from Monkees,
      We never, never monkey around.
      Our one goal in preaching,
      is to put everyone else down.

  7. Family Court—
    Where all eight teenage children sit in the parlor with their possibles and prospectives, under the watchful eyes of Mother, who sits tatting doilies in the corner.

  8. Bay Watch: A show about the challenges of life guarding on the beach. (Gender segregated, of course. And male lifeguards for the male beach, female lifeguard for the female beach.) One challenge is making sure swimwear is appropriately modest. Swimsuits have to be similar to the ones pictured here: http://www.swimmodest.com. Another challenge is to make sure nobody drowns, as many will not be wearing swimsuits, but females will be wearing long dresses, and males, long pants.

    1. My (somewhat) Fundy husband calls bikini wearing women and men who walk around all the time without shirts on “the melanoma club.” Unfortunately, the man does have a point. However, modest swimwear only partially helps. If the fabric isn’t UV resistant in the water, a person’s skin will get sun damaged through the fabric. Even though I wear a. short sleeved high necked modest swim shirt, I get it from a secular company such as O’Neill, whose aim is sun protection, not from a Fundy website, whose aim is modesty!

      1. Those “swimsuits” make my eyeballs bleed. A friend of mine was recently at the beach for some sort of homeschool convention or something like that, and she said there was a family with girls who were forced to wear ankle length denim skirts in the pool! They were only allowed to “swim” at night so people wouldn’t see them. They HAD to be fundies!! To be honest, I was shocked when she said they were even there, because I thought the beach was evil to fundies. She was so embarrassed for these girls. So much for being “modest” and not drawing attention to yourself.

        1. Ding ding ding! You are right. False modesty, false humility, and false piety. It’s all sanctimonious affectation.

      2. Dress on the beach = okay if you just plan on strolling along the sand or wading in the shallows. Culottes while swimming = are you kidding me? And these snap between the legs like baby clothes!

        1. “Snap between the legs like baby clothes!”

          Nice one! Never caught that detail you noticed, but it is profound. Could an underlying motivation for their design philosophy be rooted in perpetuation of infantilism? Or degradation through regression? That website just went from humorous to horrifying.

  9. Someone mentioned “As the Word Burns” – I would add that this is strong messages about soul-winning and a challenge to the viewers do win one this week.

    There is “Soul-Winning: Extreme Makeover” that turns an indifferent Christian into an aggressive soul-winner.
