Ok, so it was actually a “Flash Mob,” but it might be nearly as scarring. Our on-site reporter noted: “Those unstoppable dance moves make me want to abandon Scriptural authority, logically coherent ethical arguments, and 2,000 years of church teaching…like right now!”
If you are curious enough about song that accompanied the dancers, it was “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from the musical Hairspray. Here are the opening lyrics:
Ever since this whole world began
A woman found out if she shook it she could shake up a man
So I’m gonna shake and shimmy it the best that I can today!
Cause you can’t stop the motion of the ocean or the sun in the sky
You can wonder if you wanna but I’ll never ask why
And if you try to hold me down, I’m gonna spit in your eye and say
That you can’t stop the beat!
What a delightful way to shake up a church conference.
