    It should read One Big Awful Mistake, America. At least, that's how I've seen it.

    How edifying. That car probably was in a church parking lot unfortunately.

    One should expect Christians to be more perceptive than the pagans. What is wrong to point out that Americans made One Big Awful Mistake last November.

    Don't take me out of context. I have no problem with a bumber sticker that points out that a mistake was made. I have a problem with a bumber sticker that uses profanity to do so.

    So your problem isn't the message but the words, and yet you some how feel necessary to claim it was probaly in a church parking lot?

    There were bumper stickers like this (using profanity about Bush) when Bush was in office, too. There is nothing new under the sun.

    If the message isn't the problem, what makes you think profanity was found in a curch parking lot? was it your parking lot?

    It could have been. There are plenty of people that go to my church that don't act very Christian. The problem is pretty common across most churches.

    I agree, but what made you assume it was in a church parking lot based on one word and not the message? Why would assume, based one word it's achrisitans car? and not an unbeleiver?

    Ah, but the mistake could have been much bigger, an obese derrière mistake. A double whammy mistake. :laugh:

    Agree, The word A** is use on TV a lot and should still be considered profane. 20 years ago they didn't use this language....what happened to christian convictions against such words?

    Yes, used in the proper context. I could use a word (the B word) that when used in the proper context (about a female dog) is acceptable, but out of context is not acceptable.
