Instead of perfume there will be rottenness

It's Good Friday today, and I'm reading The Bible. I struggle with it; I don't understand. Isaiah is a cruel, cruel chapter of the Old Testament. Reminding us of God's terrible disappointment in us and the punishment he has in store.

Yes, there are bad girls in The Bible, and God does not love them. Woe to the wicked! They let their women rule over them.

Isaiah 3: 18-24
The LORD said:

Because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks, glancing wantonly with their eyes, mincing along as they go, tinkling with their feet; the Lord will smite with a scab the heads of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will lay bare their secret parts.

In that day the Lord will take away the finer of the anklets, the headbands, and the crescents; the pendants, the bracelets, and the scarfs; the headdresses, the armlets, the sashes, the perfume boxes, and the amulets; the signet rings and nose rings; the festal robes, the mantles, the cloaks, and the handbags; the garments of gauze, the linen garments, the turbans, and the veils.

Instead of perfume there will be rottenness; and instead of a girdle, a rope; and instead of well-set hair, baldness; and instead of a rich robe, a girding of sackcloth; instead of beauty, shame.

• • The bad girls in the Bible won't do us any good, Joyce — — because NYC director Louis Lopardi is seeking "bad girls" in The Big Apple with blue-state charisma to spare as he casts for the female roles in "COURTING MAE WEST: Sex, Censorship and Secrets."
• • "Courting Mae West" will have a limited workshop in Manhattan, then head for a full production during July 2008 at the Algonquin Theatre.
• • Reach Louis Lopardi at CompanyOfPlayers.com - - all you bad girls.

I have a feeling the Bad Girls who were alive at the time didn't have a chance to provide input to the authors of the Bible. Otherwise, it would have been quite a different kind of book.

Is this a photo of someone playing Salome based on Oscar Wilde's version?

What jealous sourpuss wrote that chapter, I wonder? Someone who couldn't get the time of day from one of those hot Daughters of Zion, no doubt.

The line about "letting their women rule them" makes me think of something I read about in when learning a little about the Ottoman Empire: a period known as the Reign of Women, when the most powerful women in the palace harem pulled the political strings via manipulation of eunuchs, among other things. Well, that's whatcha get for turning women into rats in a cage!
