#345: Lynette Schaefer

I am not sure who Lynette Schaefer really is (hence the lack of a proper photo), but the people at RaptureReady endorse her writings – they give no real bio, but point out that she is an avid Bible reader and born again evangelical.

At least Schaefer weighs in on important topics we have not covered in sufficient detail thus far. For instance, she dares ask the pertinent question “Should Christians Wear Tattoos?” Well, guess what: even if you honestly believe you are “tattooing for Jesus” you are being deceived. And Schaefer tells you what tattooing really is, claiming for instance that “[s]tudies have also been done that link tattoos to homosexuality, lesbianism, and gross sexual perversion” (she doesn’t provide the sources, though). No wonder, since tattoos are signs of “paganism, demonism, Baal worship, shamanism, mysticism, heathenism, cannibalism and many other pagan beliefs". In fact, Lynette really thinks they are genuinely magical. Remember also: “Who really is the Master Tattooist?  Satan, of course!” Wonder what she’d say about this one.

Diagnosis: It’s good that someone takes issue with the things that really matter, those small everyday things we usually don’t think twice about but which could still become objects of obsessive lunacy. Schaefer is probably harmless, though.
