Old School Hipsters

I found the following blip on Sobornost somewhat funny: “Hipsters and Orthodoxy”:

Hipster Christians, I’m going to help you out. I see you are grasping at something, trying to find the ironic Church of your dreams, where men can grow beards of foolish proportions and women can dress like their grannies’ grannies, a place where scarves are worn in every unfashionable fashion imaginable, a place where people do shots and eat hummus at community gatherings, enjoy rooms filled with a fog of incense and prefer to read books that pre-date industrialisation.

I would like to direct your attention to “The Orthodox Church.”

Anna Bee may be having fun with the “Orthodoxy as Boutique Religion” theme. I address such criticism in “Religion of Last Resort.” Enjoy it for what it is, smile, and enjoy August.
