Recently I came across a video of a senior member of a church, Anthony Morris, on a bizarre tirade against Spanx.
In it he rants “…What are these Spanx, the skintight stuff that they wear? Now, are our sisters wearing it in the ministry? No. I can’t say I’ve ever seen that.”
He goes on to ask “Is it appropriate to wear skintight Spanx or whatever they call it ? It’s not modest, and it’s certainly not sound of mind. It’s really not appropriate. There’s really nothing else to say about it.”
But he does say more: “Don’t go out in public like that and say you worship The True God…and if you’ve never thought about it, it’s time to think about it.”
You can watch it all here:
Well I’ve thought about it long and hard, Tony. I’ve decided that you are an idiot*.
I’ve also decided to pull together an edit of the best, most functional, and *gasp* sexiest shapewear around at the moment.
Ladies, according to crazy Tony we may be burning in hell for this, but at least we’ll look smoking.
*Watching the video further, it turns out that poor misguided Tony is actually confused about Spanx and Spandex, as he mentions something about the shame of women wearing tight clothing while exercising. He also goes on to criticise men for wearing tight pants, saying they are immodest and states “The homosexuals that are designing these clothes, they like you in tight pants.” So he’s not only an idiot but a disgraceful homophobe.
