Posted on 08/08/2013 2:43:57 PM PDT by MarkBsnr
A female CofE vicar yesterday insisted she has not sinned against God by putting an obscene bumper sticker reading 'WTFWJD' on the back of her car.
The Reverend Alice Goodman stuck the sticker, standing for What The F*** Would Jesus Do?', on the back of her red Subaru Legacy - sparking outrage from members of her parish.
But the Reverend insists the sticker is harmless and even the former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams was happy to accept a lift in her car in the past.
The sign - a play on the Christian motto What Would Jesus Do? - has offended some of the worshippers in the Fulbourn and Wilbrahams parish in Cambridgeshire where Dr. Goodman is the rector.
But the American-born vicar, 54, claimed she was simply using an Old English word.
She said: 'F*** is not a blasphemy, its a vulgarity, an Old English word.

WWMDD? What would Mad Dawg do? I shall knock and see if he is home.
Ping to CofE topic.
100 bucks she’s a lesbian. Clue in on the Subaru.
Wonder if she’d use this phrase if the “F” stood for “Female”.
The truth is a lot more interesting, though.
:: not a blasphemy, its a vulgarity ::
Well. then it’s OK. XPians, in general, can use vulgar language -in contradiction to historical teachings- because it isn’t “blasphemy”.
Modern “liberalism” is a mental disease.
I’m less offended by the suggestive obscene language on her bumper sticker than by the fake fudgepacker marriages blessed in her fake church.
“See this collar? It means, ‘don’t argue with she-who-must-be-obeyed’.” Charming.
:: on the back of her red Subaru Legacy ::
GMTA. She’s a carpet-muncher alright.
I am just surprised people think it is a real church
abstain from any appearance of evil.
No brainer if you are a Christian.
I went to the pic at the site.
Can't say I'm surprised.
I used to have a bumper sticker on the back of my Tahoe that raised some eyebrows.
“YOU MAY ALL GO TO HELL AND I WILL GO TO TEXAS”
My thoughts, even before scrolling down to the caption.
WWTQT? - What Would The Queen Think? I don’t think she’d be pleased.
I am not so sure.
She is 54, he is 81.
He’s a damn poet.
Plus I saw a picture of her wearing the jeans and the large belt buckle belt lesbians like to wear.
Plus I am currently checking for kids, which I would not be surprised if she doesn’t have any.
Further every lesbian I have known that dresses male/butch has a foul mouth and swears more than I do. Her exclaiming it’s vulgar, not blashpemy, so it’s totally fine, is ridiculous. I wonder if she peppers her “sermons” with the f-word because it’s just an old english vulgarity.
I am still convinced I’d win the bet.
one daughter from Geoffrey. apparently the beard gave her a kid.
This is par for the course for these Devil worshipers.
And that is EXACTLY what they are.
Block out the hair with your hand, and you can almost see Mick Jagger.
Tell me about the Subaru! I know about “comfortable shoes” lezbos, but never about their car choices.
Subaru’s long been a pro-gay company and for the longest time gays and lesbians bought Subarus because of it.
oh isn’t she just so cool
OK, thanks for the info!
I swear and I am not a lesbian
She's a Yank. *sigh*
When my ex-wife showed up with a Subaru, my first words to her were "I had no idea you were a lesbian!"
Why do export our heretics and apostates when Britain already has their own?
Well, when you spend most of your time in NYC, you never learn about car choices!
“Well I’m not the world’s most physical guy but when squeezed me tight nearly broke my spine, Lola”
True that. It’s one place you don’t actually need a car.
No Vicar of Dibley, that one...
The question I was trained to ask myself was, ‘Whose needs am I serving?’
The reason I wore clericals was to stress my ‘office’, my sacramental persona above the wonder that is me.
the reason I have tried, with no success, to clean up my language, is that the more my tongue is mine, the more I can offer it to God.
This is lamentable pastoring. It follows from a bankrupt praxis generally.
The pic of her says it all. Wonder what the arabic sticker says.
"Obama for Caliph"
“100 bucks shes a lesbian. Clue in on the Subaru.”
The Vicar of Dibley she ain’t.
it’s hebrew, still curious too.
“I am just surprised people think it is a real church”
Didn’t the followers of Jesus act like this? In another ten years a majority of people will believe they did. Five years later a majority will believe that 6 apostles were female and 6 were male; they’re trying to fabricate five companians for Mary Magdalene...
I have to admit I did laugh.
Subaru driver equals LESBIAN!!!
Easy now. I liked my Subaru.
Wait. Maybe you’re right. I’m a lesbian trapped in a guy’s body.
It is worse than that, my friend.
The jokes just write themselves, don't they?
I guess my approach here is to trace the smaller steps. What accounts for bankrupt praxis? She appears to justify this on the grounds that she means to wake people up, when all she has achieved is to make herself the topic of conversation.
Is that what her flock needs? What line of thought would reduce her claimed pastoral call to a bumper sticker? Will she be more effective in ministering to the elderly devout or in instucting children? Will she give good counsel to the despairing or wise rebukes to the proud?
Where does such a view of sacred ministry arise? What formation leads to this sort of thing? Whom is she serving?
If the gentlest examination can shatter this sort of behavior, how much more will it be pulverized by a more severe inquiry?
