There may be a good Christian message buried somewhere in here . . . but still, on the list of ways to pay homage to our good friend Jesus, this can't be very high. There's an aerobics studio in Houston, Texas called Best Shape of Your Life Studios, and they're offering a class called Pole Fitness for Jesus.

It's every other Sunday . . . for women only . . . and you have to bring a church program to get in.  The women in the class are fully-clothed and pole dance to Christian rock music.

Instructor, Crystal Dean, says they're trying to take the whole "pole dancing is for strippers" stigma away . . . it's actually a good way to get in shape, build self-esteem, and, yep, celebrate the body that God gave you. She insists that it is all about female empowerment. "I teach women to feel good about themselves," she told the local FOX affiliate.

The only thing I can think to add onto this story is the fact that guys will be stealing dollars out of the offering plate to throw at the Jesus Strippers.It's called -- wait for it -- , a bi-weekly program in which women dance on a stripper pole set to Christian music.
