Speak into the golden microphone: A Real Housewives of Salt Lake City holiness ranking
Brethren and sistren, welcome. Today’s pre-ranking sermon is about abundance. Last week, there was no holiness ranking because I, your devoted First Blogger of the Church of Andy Cohen of Latter-Day Viewers, was found lacking. Lacking in the spirit of the snark and lacking in the energy stay up late enough to watch Housewives, which airs at the most unholy hour of 10 p.m. on Wednesday nights, to write about it before the sun rose on Thanksgiving, when my most important task was to get a turkey into the oven as early in the day as possible.
😇😇Jen has found herself in the middle of classic first seasonHousewivesdrama. One of her friends said something mean and now Jen is out to make sure her other friends are securely in her pocket and against the one friend who is accused of wrongdoing. Sowing division is extremely un-Muslim-
like but not as bad as exposing her legs, and possibly her vagina, to a man that qualifies as a non-mahram. (In Islam a mahram is usually a member of one’s family who is ineligible for a woman to marry and therefore, the rules of hijab need not apply.)
Brooks Marks, who is one more comment away from stealing this entire show, is technically eligible to marry Jen because he is of consenting age and not related to her in any way, therefore while she is not hijabi herself there is a level of decorum that is expected while in this man’s presence. She was also drunk and cursing in this episode so you already know what that means. headtopics.com
AdvertisementMeredith, the Jewish mother of Brooks Marks😇😇😇Meredith, her Chicago accent, and her perfect son Brooks had a pretty solid week despite that choice of costume for the’20s party. Unfortunately, Meredith volunteered herself to attend a church that preaches Jesus Christ is the Messiah and was resurrected after death. Since Meredith has not given any indication that she is a part of Jews for Jesus, this is a point against her. But her church outfit was super duper cute,
albeit a little too much cleavage exposed for that kind of church.AdvertisementLisa, the Mormon in desperate need of a storyline😇😇😇I actually completely forgot that Lisa was in this episode because she did almost nothing? She also looks a lot like Meredith,
so I get the two confused. If it weren’t for her permanent sin of owning a liquor company, Lisa would have actually been this week’s winner for the one scene of trying (failing) to go over the ten commandments with her son and another scene of her praying. Very nice. But she just gave those heaven points away with the company and with her Diet Coke which has 46mg of caffeine per 12 ounces. She ordered a 40 ounce which is like...
a lot. I don’t knowmath but I doknow Mormons do not consume caffeine.AdvertisementMary, the Pentecostal with the gold mic😇😇😇😇😇Mary preaches with a gold microphone. This has nothing to do with sin,I just find it fascinating that in a faith that preaches humility she is really up there speaking in tongues into a gold microphone. The last pastor I knew who used a fancy microphone turned out to be a complete trash bag, headtopics.com
so this does not bode well for Ms. Mary. But other than a gaudy choice in hardware, Mary had a stellar week. Not only did she bring Whitney and her dad into her church (points for this were awarded in the last holiness ranking and will not repeat this week),
she also managed to scoop up Meredith, another potentially lost soul. She alsoput in a lot of work to discourage her teenage son from dating, even going so far as to recommend a boarding school in L.A.to get him away from his current girlfriend. All of this overshadowed Mary’s continued use of earrings (which she notably did not wear in her actual church) and pushed her just over the edge into the first win for this week. Jehovah Jirah has seen you Mary and he is pleased.
