Because Word and Sacrament just ain’t enough for modern men…
Doing it all wrong! The linked article shows this is another dog-and-pony-show evangelical church, ‘heavy on live bands, tattoos, and everyman Jesus worshipping.’
Though to that, they add giving away guns and embracing of uber-macho bro-speak, calling some hypothetical (probably non-existent) whiners failing to set their alarms to get to church on Father’s Day morning then whining about not getting a chance to win the guns ‘pansies’.
To their credit, the article does point out they try to encourage married couples to have more sex. That’s all well and good, but are they targeting women with that message in particular? (Since they’re usually the ones responsible for the lack thereof, in terms of withholding it, using it as a bargaining chip, etc.)
Oh, and BTW, what the fuck is all this talk about zombies? They don’t exist! Why try to sell the merits of owning one of these raffled semi-automatic weapons on the basis of how well they could blow away mythical creatures that don’t exist (and, for that matter, are a sacrilegious parody of the doctrine of the resurrection of the body)?
C’mon! MAN UP and tell how well they blow away EVIL PEOPLE! Or are you too much of a ‘pansy’ for that?
(I jest, of course. I recognize that’s in poor taste. But I happen to think that not only is giving away prizes to attract people to church wrong, but giving away prizes of that nature just may possibly be the looniest idea ever, as well as the worst in poor taste… But I’m Canadian, so what the hell do I know, right?)
