Anointed Purple Cow Tag Earrings
I was in a discussion today that reflected what those earrings represented; another ratcheting-up of the despotic regime that ruled our lives.
JRS never wielded the domineering control over the fellowship that G&M imposed in successive stages over the decades of their rule. The Cow Tag Earrings--the Old Testament analogy of an 'awl through the ear of the servant' (Deut 15:17)--were a symbolic upgrade (a downgrade to everyone else) in their efforts to solidify unquestioning obedience, thus allowing for the proliferation of more widespread abuses that followed, including psychological, sexual, and financial, etc.
I believe the arrival of these earrings was close to the time of the 'militarization' of YASP in the early 90's, and the ridiculous implementation of 'designated relationships' (God in the flesh?) that reeked so much havoc across the fellowship.
As it turns out, 'GOD is the sky' was still a better option.
Oh ya, and call 'no man Father'.
