[I found this over at Zack Hunt's blog. Here's his opening:]
“I’ve seen some appalling religious tracts in my day, but this one is right up there near the top of the list for worst tracts ever.
“I found it over at Treasury of Tracts.
“Apparently, it’s part of a larger booklet called Christian Charm Course which describes itself as…
A Course for Girls Giving Methods for Improving the Outer Appearance Along with Spiritual Instruction for Developing the True Beauty which Comes from a Heart surrendered to the Love of Jesus Christ.
“Aside from being absurdly long, that subtitle makes one thing clear. When it comes to ‘true beauty,’ improving the outer appearance comes first.”
[Zack then highlights some of the lowlights from the tract, including pictures and charts. It's so bad it's a wonder this book ever made it into anyone's home. I hope those solid in their faith know to avoid these things like the plague, because a plague on our lives they are. But when you read about it at Zack's place, it's a hoot!]
[P.S. Using the word Ladies in the title of this post made me gag. Here's why.]
