Did you know that those Mormons out of Salt Lake City have “special undergarments” required to be worn when participating in religious ceremonies at their lavish temples?
I found out about this because I read about Republican U.S. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s “Magic Underwear.” If those cult members with several wives can have it, then so shall The Church of Chris Martin!
We now have for sale in the Church of Chris Chapel: CHRIS MARTIN “SHIVERS” named after the beloved song that Coldplay is loathe to play live in concert. These blessed under things have been specially anointed by having been immersed in a room where Coldplay music was played without stop for 48 hours. After that, a high church official or Holy Elder sprinkled Chris Martin Holy Water on the garments and chanted the lyrics to Shiver 7 times.
For those not in the know about these knickers, here is what Wikipedia says: “Temple garments are a type of underwear worn by members of some denominations of the Latter Day Saint movement, after they have taken part in the Endowment ceremony. Garments are worn both day and night and are required for any previously endowed adult to enter a temple. The undergarments are viewed as a symbolic reminder of the covenants made in temple ceremonies, and are viewed as either a symbolic or literal source of protection from the evils of the world. The garment is given as part of the washing and anointing portion of the endowment. Today, the temple garment is worn primarily by members of LDS Church and by members of some Mormon fundamentalist churches. Adherents consider them to be sacred and not suitable for public display.”
It is now ordained: Church of Chris Martin congregants and all sanctuary members in good standing shall now be commanded to wear (clean) Chris Martin “Shivers” to all high church functions. Those unable to afford the new underwear will be allotted a discount and can pay in installments.The Doctrine of the Shiver Mandate states that the garments provide Martinites with a irredeemable reminder of exalted Coldplay covenants. Our new teaching on this insists that the white undies provide protection against temptation and evil and also puts a hex on any Coldplay nay-sayers who criticize Chris Martin. Wearing the garment is also “an outward expression of an inward commitment” to eternally love Chris Martin, despite his tendencies to commit adultery and be sexually attracted to skinny, flat-chested blonds. Deacon Frederick adds that the garment “strengthens the wearer to resist temptation, fend off the wicked and stand firmly for the might of Coldplay redemption.” The nature of the protection afforded by our Shiver temple garments is so powerful that some parishioners have claimed that the righteous tighty whiteys have saved them from men at bars with poor hygiene, women gold-diggers, and a few have credited the special underwear with helping them survive car wrecks, fires, and natural disasters.
