Church Sign Epic Fails, “Fuzzy Math” Edition

So many people claim to be bad at math, which is why I always pay anyone who does work for me in rainbows and belly button lint. So far, so good!

Who says you have to check your brain at the door when you come to church?!?

And this is no small thing. Do you know how hard it is to grade papers while being crucified?

Clearly he needs to brush up on his math skills. Problem is, everyone’s nervous to tell him when he gets one wrong.

So if I leave church early, you’re saying I should kill myself? Little harsh, dontcha think?

Talk about an internal reference. Or is this kind of like putting up a “No Solicitors” sign?

    Regarding the first one (“4 given”): Christians do believe, after all, that in the divine math 3=1.

    But then 3 also equals 5?
