Generally-accepted acronym for Pulpit-Taught Lemmings. This refers to people who allow themselves to be mind-controlled by their church or place of worship. This is most evident by the movement of Christian churches in the US to gain control of the government. Their leaders are currently urging their congregations, which are filled with PTLs, to vote for conservative candidates who will establish the US as a Christian nation.
PTLs are ruining the US by allowing the narrow view of their mind-controlling pastors and priests to interfere with their objective thought and intellect.

Post-Thesis Life

The beautiful time when a college senior is finally finished with their senior thesis and can enjoy senior spring like a normal human being.
I can't wait for PTL, when I can finally drink with my friends again instead of working on my thesis.
