In Texas, Pole-Dancing ... for Jesus Who says the two can't go together?

(Newser) – If you’re religious, you might feel a little bit uncomfortable about strutting your stuff on a stripper pole. But what if you were doing it for God? In Texas, you can do just that at a class called “Pole Fitness for Jesus,” Fox News reports. Every second Sunday of the month, female churchgoers file into a fitness studio and slither around poles to “upbeat contemporary Christian music,” says the owner. “We basically are just continuing the whole worship thing here,” she explains. “I don’t teach women to be strippers.”

“I think it’s a fabulous thing. I was raised around religion,” says one student. “My parents were very religious and it’s a great way you get the stigma off. It’s not just dancing on a pole. You have music and you have girls together working out and it’s a different kind of workout.”

  • I just love how people here are justifying bumping and grinding on a pole b/c it's "for Jesus". Yet point a finger at girls who do it for the money.
    I can just imagine Jesus' face had a prostitute offered to do a pole dance for him! LMAO!

    Oh. My. Goodness.  That is the funniest thing I've seen all day.  I'm so glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read it.  My keyboard is already having enough problems without me spewing liquid all over it!
