 read 'em and weep

there seem to be more than the usual number of nutty church signs in my neighborhood this week:


what do you think? political message? or just clever punnery?
i showed it to a baptist friend of mine and she said that she was familiar with this church, and it was definitely a political message. (their last sign proclaimed --praise god!!-- that their april 9 attendance was 3,906.)


and this one just terrifies me. i mean, what the...? is there a sentence there? it hurts my head.

Does the Enemy have an escape plan?
Is it CODE NAME Jesus?

as a left-handed left-leaning atheist I heartily agree with the sentiment "give God what's right, not what's left."

that second one gives me a bit of a shiver.

I've heard the "Give God what's right" thing before and it had to do with tithing. There's a passage in the Bible that talks about giving 10% of your income back to God (through the church). I think this sign means that people should give God the true 10% of their income, not just a dollar in the collection plate when it's convenient.

However, I am not familiar with this church so it's probably just political....

That's just alarming. How can God-loving people really believe that God is political.

Hey Sarah, I'm lefthanded too--maybe it means that when it comes time to make a blood sacrifice, we're off the hook? >;)

I'm left handed too! - Such a lefty blog readership, Xta!
