Church Sign Epic Fails, “Force-Fed Faith” Edition

You can either eat it or wear it. Your choice…


Umm, wait, are we taking the church by force, or are they taking us by force? Either way, it’s all going down over there, to the left.

You think the sign’s bad? You should see the narthex. Not pretty.

You know, I was on the fence, but that edgy cultural reference totally sold me.

I’m all for church blurring the sacred/secular lines, but this one might even be going too far for me. Unless it’s a proctologists’ convention. Then it’s totally cool.

I don’t get it. Oh wait…no, still don’t get it.

Yaknow, witty word play and fear of eternal torment go together like, umm, peas and satan.

Nothing quite like forcible prayer to really get the ol’ spirit stirring.

    I thought the broken sign one was kind of clever.

    I like the “Church Parking Only” sign. My care broke down one day and I had just enough momentum to pull into an empty church parking lot and into a spot. Yes, there was one of these no parking signs but hey, it’s a church and I was in a jam right? (Not to mention I was a pastor in the town visiting friends.) I got picked up and since it was the weekend, I left a note on the church door for the pastor and since it was in a spot towards the back of the parking lot, planned to have it picked up first thing Monday. They had it impounded.

    Oh, so they’ve come out and admited that “I pray for you” is code for “fuck you, and the horse (or car) you rode in on”. Well, that’s good I guess, they weren’t fooling anyone to begin with.
