We're Man, Manly Men, We're Men in Tights
Church is for pussies. At least that's what Brad Stine says. Okay, so he didn't use the term "pussies", but I'll bet that's what he thinks. Brad is the founder of GodMen. What in all fine hells is GodMen? Well, it's a Christian event that is for men only. Manly men, with testosterone oozing out of their eyes. No women are allowed, because we women folk aren't manly enough to be GodMen guys. Actually, I know a few women who could kick Brad's butt all to heck and back, but I guess that's not the point here. Brad seems to think that church is too girly for "real" men and invites these men to attend GodMen.
Brad aka Hercules claims that the Jesus that is being taught in churches is too wimpy. GodMen guys are all for the rough and tumble Jesus who threw out the money changers in the temple. The Jesus who said things like "fuckin-a" and "that's hardcore, dude" and was always asking everyone if they wanted to touch his "guns".
This is what the website has to say about it, "This is a place of worship where we engage in laughter for laughter's sake, music for the sake of music, and male-specific elements that let guys be guys."
Suhweet! Where else can you go and worship the big G AND scratch your crotch? Without anyone blinking an eye, even. In fact, crotch scratch and adjusting your dingus and dangles is probably encouraged at GodMen.
GodMen has a great tagline, too. "When faith gets dangerous". I don't want to disappoint all the GodMen goers out there, but I think the whole faith getting dangerous idea has been done before. Maybe like that little Inquisition thing. Or even a few hundred wars or so. But don't let that discourage you. On the upside, if you attend a GodMen event, you can witness men bending frying pans. With their bare hands. How macho-cool is that?
Yeah. Not very. Of course, I'm not a manly man with an enormous scrotum, so I may not be the best judge of such things.
He-Man Brad is supposed to be a comedian, but I watched all three news clips that are on his website and I didn't laugh once. Not even a snicker. I think it has something to do with him being a conservative comedian. Which I think is an oxymoron. Heavy on the moron.
Church Sign O' The Week
Thomas captured this lovely sign yesterday, and it may be the best one I've seen. And by best, I mean most asinine. By the way, don't you think asinine should be spelled assinine.
Oh thou clever church sign guy, are we really supposed to believe that the capital-G God not only chose to speak to you, but this is what he had to say?
I have a little trouble believing that, but it's okay. I'll play along.
How about next week you put this up, "My dad can beat up your dad - Jesus"
