2011’s Worst Christmas Church Series (So Far…)
It is kicked off by this video of Santa getting his swagger back.
I don’t want to be a pedant and all, but you would think that a church–a church!–would at least have something to do with Jesus for their Christmas series. But no, alas, Santa gets head billing for this church.
What is ‘swagger’ you ask? Well according to the dictionary:
verb. strut – brag – prance – peacock – boast – swank – vaunt
noun. strut – swank
adjective. swell – stylish – chic – spruce
However, the word is likely being used in a more connotative sense. According to Urban Dictionary:
Swagger is “How one presents him or her self to the world. Swagger is shown from how the person handles a situation. It can also be shown in the person’s walk.” Or, “A person’s style- they way they walk, talk, dress.”
The above video is then used to kick off a sermon on ‘Holy’ swagger…
So, here we have a double-fail in this Santamas series: one, missing the point of Christmas, and two, trying way too hard to be ‘relevant’ and failing miserably… seriously? When did JT make that song? Bringing Sexy Back becomes Bringin Swagger Back and a Christmas series focuses on Santa getting his swagger back?
The stupid. It burns!
