The Institute of Basic Life Principles recently announced that, having discovered that the days of the week are named after pagan gods, it plans to re-name each day for a character quality.
"We were shocked to realize Christians have been using a worldly system of days," said an Institute staffer. "For example, Thursday was named for Thor, the Norse God of Thunder!"
"God has called mature Christians to live above the standards of the world," said Bill Gothard.
The Institute will also recall all previously-sold IBLP Character Calendars and will issue new calendars with Institute-approved days of the week, for a small fee.
X-ATI Guy obtained a draft proposal of the new days of the week, listed below.
Sunday Self-Control Day Monday Meekness Day Tuesday Thoroughness Day Wednesday Wisdom Day Thursday Thriftiness Day Friday Flexibility Day Saturday Sincerity Day
