Christopher West said that at the seminar in the sanctuary after going up to the altar and pointing at it, saying in a high-strung tone, "Do you know what this is?! Do you know what this is?! This is the marriage bed where the bridegroom comes down to the bride!"
Of course, with all things analogical which West penetrates: yes in a different context, but absolutely no in West's penetration; in West's utterly depleting and deleterious use of analogy - or, to be more accurate, his wrenched and tortuous abuse of analogous language. He is what I call a "reverse processor". It would initially sound like a compliment, like he was some kind of genius, except that it's not.
Anyways, it was after this that he picked up the bouquet of flowers sitting in front of the pulpit and proclaimed, "Do you know what flowers are? Flowers are nature's most beautiful reproductive organ! Why does a bride walk down the aisle with flowers? They are reproductive organs. When we visit someone in the hospital we bring them reproductive organs."
And on and on, being the breathless example of how "When you have the ears to hear it, the eyes to see it, the Song of Songs is everywhere!"
It was while he was talking about how flowers are nature's most beautiful reproductive organ (of course if he said "vagina" or even "genitalia" it would have been game up for Christopher West) that my mind went back to first walking into the church where in the narthex piles of Christopher West's latest book were waiting to be sold.
Which kind of reminds me of this:
That's what you call subliminal messaging.
