Stand Up, Stand Up For . . .

Some of you know that I have a minor investment in the Hebrew expression מַשְׁתִּין בְּקִיר, “pisser against a wall.” So I am always on the lookout for anything that will expand my knowledge of the phrase.
Happily The Busybody, Loren Rosson, points us to the sequel to Pastor Steven Anderson’s infamous crazy sermon on this very phrase. Only this stand up pastor could outdo his original sermon.

He is correct that many modern translations gloss the expression to make it more acceptable to the prudish. Does this remind you on anything that you’ve read about lately? With this minor exception, the sermon is crazy nonsense. But it did give me a good laugh. Now I need to excuse myself for a few minutes and be a real man.

One thought on “Stand Up, Stand Up For . . .”

  1. Interesting point of view. I could politely express disagreement with your post, or I could call you a fucking ignorant whoreson.
    If we object to the latter, we invite the criticism “prudish”. So, how prudish do you feel? (evil grin)
    Adjectives designed to make people ashamed of doing the right thing are an evil, surely.
