#ChurchTweet

American Atheists president David Silverman had an idea this morning.  Let’s start a twitter meme for people tweeting in church!

So we made our tweets, had our giggles, and went back to eating.  Then Eric, another person at the table, informed us that people were already doing this.  It seems to be a largely religious trend.

Even more reason for us to do this!  We’re pirates!  I say we procure this vessel for our own fleet!  Let’s just acquire this trend for our side.  Every Monday and Thursday morning I will compile the best of #churchtweet.  Does your family make you languish through a service weekly?  Bi-weekly?  Bust out your 21st century gizmos and vent your frustration to the world!  Synagogue or mosque, doesn’t matter!  Let us know some of the silliness you have to endure!

As far as silliness goes, you may have to compete with some of the real believers.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of them making a best of #churchtweet post.

Good ones so far are…

DFraiz4: some babies make the most awful sounds #churchtweet

An intelligent designer would have designed them to shut their food holes during service, wouldn’t he?  Blame god.

Edfbyrne: I love stealing the back pew from the Asians #ChurchTweet

Because they want them closer to the pastor, obviously.  Hallelujah!

rkent45:  In whatever you do today, remember God is beside you. And no matter what comes your way remember His hand will guide you. #churchtweet

Everybody having sex gets a surprise orgy!

Charlax3:  Tackle life’s problems by trusting God’s promises #ChurchTweet

What problem does that work for?  Not strong enough?  Work out!  Secular solution.

Sick?  Go to a doctor.  Secular solution.

Unless god’s sole promise is “fix things your own damn self” this advice is lame.

KirstenLJ:  Thank non-existent god that I grew up in a news biz family where Sunday mornings were dedicated to reading the newspaper #churchtweet

And…

KirstenLJ:  Worshiping my 60 inch gleaming god at the Church of Couch right now #churchtweet

Hooray for using Sunday morning for something productive!

sashag12:  all the time god is good #churchtweet

I tweeted back…

jteberhard: Stillborns? Earthquakes? AIDS? Cancer? Tornadoes? Do you and I live on the same planet? RT @sashag12: all the time god is good #churchtweet

God is good like a chainsaw gives good hugs.

    Hilarious! Back in my church-going days, before technology, my friends and I wrote notes to each other on the programs with the little pencils in the pew backs for the offering envelopes.
