I was driving to work today, as I do most days of the week, and noticed a church sign. Now I enjoy reading church signs even if they bug me sometimes - 'cause who I am to turn down a free pun (that's what most of them end up being anyway). Anyhow, thanks to the Church Sign Maker, I have roughly recreated it for you here:





This had me wondering. There's no sort of punctuation between the lines...and even if there was, it would not flow into any recognizable English sentence. Even if you added a "TO" between the lines, the message just becomes kinda creepy.

So, I think the church is using guilt to make people feel bad about not following the Ten Commandments. Obviously, they are just making a regular statement of fact.

The youngest of the Intergalactic Mold People always show deference to their progenitors. Shouldn't you do the same?

Hooray! An Onib post!

I'd have read the sign exactly the same way.

Oh, sure, the Mold Children are idyllic now. But they, too, will get old. And when they do they'll fantasize that when they were young substrates were plentiful, hyphae septa were easy to polymerize, and spores produced asexually by mitosis respected their genetically identical forbears. And they'll be right, too.

Amen! Preach it, brother!

There is a church on the way to Riordon's school that is fond of posting sillyness like this too. They have a fancy LED sign too just so you can read it in the dark too.

Today it read: Come and experience the Bible in new and exciting ways.

I couldn't help but think, what am I going to do to experience the Bible, which is ultimately a book full of pages in a new and exciting way? Bathe in it's luxurious thin paper sheets maybe?

After the communion jello shots, everyone strips down and writes verses from the book of Revelation in finger paints across each others backs.

I would totally go to that church!

Mind you, it doesn't say they are pleasant ways...just new and exciting. That could lead to all sorts of nastiness for all those open to new experiences.
