Conservatives Turn Liberals Into Pillars of Salt

I went into the gym yesterday and was overjoyed to see that no one was there.  That allows me to pick what is on the television whilst I sweat-away.  I chose Fox News. About 10 minutes into my routine a young woman asked me if I was watching what was on the television.  Naturally, I said yes.  She immediately responded with, “You are going to turn me into a pillar of salt!”.  I asked what she meant and she responded, “making me watch Fox News.”

Of course I let this go, because salt or not, we were going to watch Fox until I was finished according to the gym rules.   That doesn’t mean that I didn’t think about her irrelevant biblical reference at all.

By no means am I the foremost expert on Sodom, Lot or his wife, but I have a pretty decent understanding of the story.  I have no idea what that has to do with watching a news story on a cable channel.  I did not ask to have sex with an angel, a child, or anything else.  I certainly did not say that this woman should envy material things or long for some other immoral action….I just wanted to watch stories on the recent earthquakes.

I’m uncertain as to how my affinity for a certain new channel made this a right or wrong thing, but she certainly felt that watching something that did not kowtow to the liberal agenda was akin to a mortal sin. This woman probably even thought she was being a good bible scholar, was saving me from damnation, or something like that.. unfortunately, she got it wrong.  Lot’s wife did not meet her fate simply because she looked at something, she was condemned to be a condiment because she coveted an immoral life…

But, what do I know…
