    A sign of the times perhaps?

    I take issue with the pastors decision not to report the crime. Now there are criminals out there who think they can get away with this kind of thing and who knows what else. If these guys attack another church and possibly hurt someone at another church and give evidence that they did so thinking they would get away with it because of this pastor not reporting the crime then this pastor needs to be arrested also for contributing their crime wave. I just think he was very wrong and foolish here.

    Thankfully. Toilets? Really?

    I know that some would consider this a vicious attack against the church but I'm not about to jump on that particular bandwagon. They (the toilets) could have been at a bar and the results were inevitable.

    Bubba: See them turlets down by the preachin' place?

    Jim Bob: Yup.

    Bubba: Them thar turlets gotta go.

    Jim Bob: Yup.

    Bubba: Better hurry 'fore them Goth punks get thar.

    Jim Bob: Yup.

    Bubba: I'll get tha truck

    Down at the local Goth gathering.

    Visideath: Bummer. Let's go smash something.

    Bruisedeye: Toilets need to die.

    Green gathering

    Lotusflower: Those toilets are ugly and deface what we hold sacred?

    Treehugger: The church yard?

    Lotusflower: Duh! No! The wide open spaces and green places of our mother the earth.

    TH: Let's drive down in the Prius and free her of that toilet blight.

    LF: I rather walk in my hemp sandals.

    You are so funny. :laugh: Just think what they could have done with toilets if they had thought about it. I guess the church needs to be glad the vandals were not thinking.

    The use of toilets in advertising a church strikes me as being tacky.

    From the news bureau of Central Alabama, we have more on this breaking news...
    • A local was quoted as saying, "This is sure to raise a big stink in the community."
    • As was mentioned earlier, this was likely a sermon series on First, Second, and Third John.
    • The sermon series was quite popular: Most folks attended carrying a newspaper and a cup of coffee.
    • The local police chief was quoted as saying, "We hope to flush out these criminals, and have the problem wiped out within days."
    • One of the sermon subtitles was, "how the church runs."
    • Originally, this was to be a 2-part sermon series. Sermon #2 took much longer, for some reason. In fact, Sermon #1 was short enough that many of the male parishoners didn't even sit down for it.
    • This sermon series has caught on world wide...in fact, word has it in Great Britain it's being preached by some guy named, "Lou."
    • There have been spinoff Bible studies: separate men's and ladies' studies have been quite popular. Particularly the ladies' study...in fact, there has been quite the long line for it.
    More bulletins as events warrant.
