Reverend John C. Mitchell of the Warren Avenue Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana told his congregation numbering in the hundreds they need to spread Jesus’ love as if it were genital herpes.
“1 in 8 Americans has genital herpes and 50% have oral herpes. I’m telling you now there are more people with herpes in America than Christians who are infected with Jesus,” stated Reverend Mitchell.
Many of the congregants were shocked to learn that herpes can’t be cured. However, many people who were brought up in a Christ-centered home have turned away from Jesus.
In the middle of the church service break out groups were organized so people could come up with ideas on how Jesus could become genuinely viral and never leave a person’s heart once he is in there.
“I think parents today are sparing the rod,” stated 86-year-old Roger Hall. “In my day we were spanked for having the gall for contracting polio. Look at me now, I turned out fine.”
Other suggestions on how Jesus could become an incurable infection included: banning transgendered Islamic public bathrooms, throwing Hillary Clinton in jail, and testing the urine of welfare recipients for Jesus.
Reverend Mitchell finished the sermon by restating how important it was to spread Jesus at every possibility. He suggested that congregants may find it useful to think of Jesus like glitter because glitter gets everywhere whether you like it or not.
“So, Jesus should be like glitter-herpes?” asked six-year-old Andy Canard.
“Exactly,” answered the reverend.
An anonymous public health official mused the Jesus-herpes-glitter sermon was probably the most sex education any of the parishioners had ever received, and real education was the best defense against contracting STDs as well as pathological Christianity.
