No Explanations

This sign needs to be widely circulated. I presume it comes from a church that was concerned tourists and guides would speak in the church, disturbing worshippers. But there are so many other ways it could be contrued, not to mention its potential for use in a powerpoint about 1 Corinthians 14:35

(HT Theophrastus and E-Kvetcher)

    it’s meaningless without context.

    It’s like the Spiritualist Church around the corner (which has abot a dozen old ladies casting out demons every week). It had a sign which read: Spiritualist Church: Enter at Own Risk.

    Heh. The (Catholic) church I attend has a female Pastoral Associate. She functions to all intents and purposes as a Deacon. She delivers a “reflection on the Gospel” once a month because she’s technically prohibited from delivering a homily. I’d honestly have to say that she does at least as good a job as many of the priests I’ve known in my life.
