Church Rant

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Okay, this is still bothering me and it happened yesterday. I went to Church on Saturday like I always do. It was a little busier than usual, so we sat in a different spot then we usually do. I could not believe it. There was a group of people in about their early 30's that would NOT top talking. I mean NOT stop chatting. And giggling. And snickering. I could not make out what they were saying, but it was ridiculous. All through the first reading, the second reading, jut through the entire Mass. I am not quite sure what the problem was, but I found it incredibly rude and distracting. We were sitting pretty far up so the Priest *must* have seen them talking. He might have been able to HEAR them talking (yes it was that loud). I so wanted to turn around and say "the Starbucks is across the street if you would like to have a nice chat". I kept my mouth shut and tried to concentrate.

It is nice to dress up for Church, but this lady had a LOW CUT short dress on (and her top half was NOT what God gave her, not that I judge about that, but really wearing something that low during CHURCH) and at least 5 inch heals. I am not kidding, and then after communion the man and woman french kissed for at least a minute. I mean it was all very ackward.

Okay I just needed to share and see if anyone else thinks this was weird.

    Yes, it is totally inappropriate behavior for church and weird, almost like something from a movie to be so ridiculous as to be comical. If they were motivated by a desire to ruin the service for others or are simply clueless, then they need to be kindly reprimanded or educated and steered elsewhere.

    But, what would Jesus do?
    Perhaps these people were drawn to the church experience for some reason, perhaps because they need and want something. Maybe they came because deep inside them, they are looking for something to be healed, comforted, loved. They may be ignorant of how to get what they need.

    In any event, they seem to need some kind of assistance & prayers.

    Wow, yeah totally disrespectful. I went to a wedding recently and while the priest was speaking these 40 year old guys were sitting with their wives and going on and on about football, LOUDLY. I was so irritated. Why did they even come if they were just going to ignore and disrupt the whole thing. And their wives didn't say a word, man if that was my husband he would've gotten an earful. It's just so darn disrespectful, I just don't get it. I'm not a super religious person and I still find it incredibly out of line.

    Totally weird. Why go? I attended a Greek Orthodox Church for a year and they would have kicked my butt out if I acted so disrespectfully.

    Yes. Weird. Rude. Disrespectful. Ignorant. All of the above.

    I don't know why they came to church but let's hope that even through all their chatter God was able to speak to them.
