The algorithm says to lose some weight and gain some faith.

The Facebook algorithm has done it again! This time, it has decided I am both physically unfit and need to hit the gym, and my spiritual life is in disarray.

The most infuriating thing is it’s probably right on both accounts.

However, I was left somewhat perplexed when this advertisement appeared on my Facebook feed today. It’s an ad for a company called “Undeniable Clothing,” which appears to sell “Christian activewear.”

The ad read:

Ready to level up your faith and fitness game? Don’t miss out on our limited-edition Christian Performance Shorts For a limited time, receive FREE socks and a keychain with the purchase of two or more Christian Performance Shorts!

Get yours now before we sell out! #ChristianFitness

Don’t believe me?

Take a look for yourself:

Shut up and take my money!

What a time to be alive!
