Those Crazy CAP Alert People Are At It Again

BAMF linked to this “Don’t touch me there” feature the fanatical fundamentalist CAP Alert People dished up. In case you don’t know, CAP (ChildCare Action Project) is run by a Christian group which aims to “protect” today’s children from the blight of contemporary culture. Unfortunately they are a touch too zealous and in the end look nothing more than foolish. In the “don’t touch me there” feature was this, which I just have to point out is erroneous:

What Are Private Places
Private places on your body are the places which God covered on Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They are places that God does not want others to touch.

Wrong. Adam and Eve were both unashamedly naked to begin with. Only when sin entered the world (via the snake’s influence) did Adam and Eve become ashamed with their nakedness.

“And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” – Genesis 3:7-11

I believe CAP just preached incorrectly. Crazy people. Worse than the Mormons parading up and down George Street trying to convert people. Seriously – do they expect to convert people by annoying the hell out of them? The only way they’re going to convert someone, is if someone actively approaches them. Which doesn’t happen often, I’ll bet.
