When Satan Comes to Virginia, He'll be Disguised as a 16-year-old Girl Selling Donuts
The Devil takes many forms, and a Good Christian can never be too careful. In the case of Front Royal, Virginia, Satan is working His Evil through the Naughty Girls Donut Shop, owned and operated by 16-year-old Tiana Ramos. She's a high school senior and works at her shop before and after school.
I would have thought this kind of ambition and work ethic would be a good thing, but what do I know?
Naughty Girls Donut Shop has a 1950s theme, with rockabilly-style clothing worn by the employees and photos of Marilyn Monroe and Betty Page adorning the walls.
Within a week of the store's opening, people started throwing garbage at the building and leaving nasty messages like “Naughty girls burn in hell.”
Next, they started writing Yelp reviews to sabotage the store. Natalie Ramos, Tiana's mother, said:
“They were talking about how the girls look like hussies. They didn’t talk about the food or the service.”
And on Facebook and Twitter:
“They were saying that the shop represents sluts and anyone who works there is promiscuous.”
And a group called “Local Catholics of Front Royal” has organized a boycott of Naughty Girls Donut Shop. Local Catholics of Front Royal is also boycotting a local newspaper that has provided extensive coverage of clergy sex abuse scandals and has been urging the town to overturn a longtime ban on fortune telling. One resident of Front Royal said fortune tellers and similar businesses should continue to be banned because of “Satanism.” She said:
“These kinds of businesses do tend to attract, in part, a criminal element. I don’t like the idea of my kids walking down Main Street and having possibly criminal people lurking around.”
Tiana Ramos said she had hoped her store would be a refuge for people who were bullied at school and/or just didn't fit in with the rest of Front Royal.
When asked if she might relocate her store out of fear of the local Salem Witch Hunters, Tiana Ramos said:
“Heck no. They’re the reason we’re staying here.”
