Church Sign Epic Fails, Vol. XXXV

If the Church Sign Epic Fails series was alive, it could be President of the United States. Given the current political climate, maybe that’s not such a bad idea…

I’m giving up lint for Lent.

Wondering what kind of container they have to keep God trapped in that one little church.

At least that way, you’ll always have someone else to blame when you do bad stuff.

Is this a gay thing?

Now THAT’s what I call a party.

Where the hell were you when I was taking pre-calculus???

I was a little sad to see this was from a Disciples church.

There is so much awesomeness on this sign, I think I might explode.

    I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry at the “most are welcome” bit in that last sign Somehow it hurts, physically – entirely too true to entirely too many peoples’ attitude!

    • Sophia Lewis

      That might be the most honest sign we’ve seen with “most are welcome”.

      • Edward Green

        I am guessing that those who struggle with all are welcome might not feel so welcome …

  • Jeff Moulton

    I don’t think that last sign is real. I’ve been unable to find an “All Souls Parish” [perish?] in the Cleveland Ohio area. A search of the area code and first three digits says that it is a wireless number.

    Additionally, the website listed on the sign is for a church in the UK, not the US, but that phone number is clearly a US format number.

      yeah it’s copyrighted by Eric Passoja, who is a comedian and web designer. Chances are you’re right. Still really funny.

  • Marc Mielke

    I think I know what kind of container they might be using…

    I keep thinking about these wolves,
    lambs, cows, bears and gangs gathered together. That might lead to chaos.
