Jesus vs. “Mean Girls”

“Mean Girls” poster edited to read “Mean Pharisees”

An article in today’s Toronto Star covering a the author of Girl Politics: Friends, Cliques and Really Mean Chicks, from the Zonderkidz branch of Christian publisher Zondervan, gave some advice about mean girls, including this gem:

Q: Using the Bible as a guide to deal with really mean chicks, isn’t that a stretch?

A: Not at all. The Bible is a marvellous tool for dealing with relationships. Jesus was constantly bullied by the Pharisees, who were basically a clique.

I will never look at the Pharisees in the same way again. From now on, I’m going to picture them as hot schoolgirls, saying things like:

  • “Jedediah, all that milk and honey will go straight to your thighs. It’s all carbs!”
  • “I’m having a party tonight and you are soooo not invited, Obadiah.”
  • “Zachariah, why are you being such a beeyotch?”
