    Simply another stunt.

    The comments under the story are worth reading. I'd bet this is generally how he is increasingly viewed by those outside his church.

    Should have been a bunch to do about God, but I think it was probably a bunch to do about nothing stunt.

    I thought this was going to be about the church that sent out the cards inviting people to Easter services with a picture of a dead rabbit on the front!! Now THAT I think was disgusting.

    But this? What's so different between this and having a live nativity?

    The question just occurred to me that other than the zoo or Vegas, where can one see a live lion?

    Answer: A circus.

    I think the day will determine if this kind of thing was of the Lord or not, but from just a practical side, as this was not free, I think the money could have been better spent and a presentation that would not have brought all this unnecessary (improper) attention could have been given, so I would agree this looks to have the marks of a stunt and when you look at other things he is doing or has done it does raise a lot of flags.

    I think some people just have too much time on their hands. They just need to mind their own business.

    church promotion. We have a local non-denom that does stunts and then advertises it ad nauseum on Facebook.
