Church Sign Epic Fails, “New Pope” Special Edition

As a way to welcome, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio Of Buenos Aires (also now known as Pope Francis) as the new pope, I figured I’d offer a mid-week all-Catholic themed church sign sampler. Don’t forget to wash your hands!

It’s happy hour not just because they use real wine; you also get two-for-one indulgences on all sins too! Venial sins only, please.

I don’t think this comes across the way you think it does. I’ll leave it at that.

And during happy hour, those are two-for-one also!

    OH MY GOD “We don’t like condoms either” WHO DESIGNED THAT I AM DYING. That was THE BEST church sign I have ever seen in your “Church Sign Epic Fails” series. Oh my God. I can’t stop laughing.

    The Catholic church doesn’t disbelieve the science of evolution. I was taught in religious ed that those 6 days of creation were not necessarily 24 hours long! Goodness knows that whomever came up with that dinosaur comment wasn’t thoroughly schooled in their faith.
