Church Signs #11: Rapture Meets the Godfather6 November, 2008
One of the churches here in town has an interesting sign up right now:
You Are On
Heaven’s Most Wanted List!
Well, crap! My blog only averages a hundred or so visits a day (and 10% of those are people looking for absinthe or information about Obama and the Anti-Christ (If you are one of the ones searching “Obama” and “Anti-Christ”: Christ, most probably, never existed, therefore his “anti” doesn’t either)). God is so paranoid that He has me on the most wanted list? I had no idea I was doing so well saving people for rationality.
(((Wife)))’s reaction was different. She said it sounded like a hit list. Like the lists that abused and/or un-socialized students keep coming up with (and occasionally acting upon). Sounds scary. God is out to get me!
Under the propaganda was a second message:
Join us Saturday
For the Harvest Festival!
Is the harvest festival when God will come down and ‘harvest’ everyone on his ‘most wanted’ list? Sounds like Rapture meets the Mob.
At the very least, the pastor really needs to take a look at how the two messages go together. These two should not be on the same sign. I’m an atheist, and even I can see that one.
