#175-Not Victoria's Secret
What happens when the gf asks that dreadful question, are those models prettier than me? It is for such a crisis that I opt to not go to malls with prospective mates.
But for the aposotlic the question is not about a potential dating crisis. It's much more of one of morality. Malls are one of 2 safe places for apostolic youths to hang out these days. They devil house (movie theater) and the sporting event idolizing men and not God are dirty no no's (but they both come with a "shhhh, don't ask don't tell theology as well).
So us youth are left to the mall, restaurant, and in some circles the bowling alley. And considering the Apostolic infatuation with fashion and materialism, malls serve us well. Except for that demonic store of Victoria's Secret. Definitely a conflicting paradox that we more often than not choose to ignore.
I know of one Apostolic apologist who in her books has gone so far as to denounce shopping at Victoria's Secret if you are unmarried because when an apostolic girl wears such lingerie she feels a sense of sexuality which is not healthy. Likewise thongs are painted demonic as well for the same reason (even if no one sees the thong, a girl feels all "sexy" inside when it's worn). I find such a stance fascinating, but refrain from further comment.
I also would like to mention Victoria's Secret is responsible for one of the great material ironies of our day and age. They have introduced a clothing line (that are not necessarily immodest) called "PINK" but in this brand name, many of the clothes are not actually Pink in color, but rather are various colors and all have the word "PINK" written loudly on them. I stand confused everytime I see this.....
