Church Sign Epic Fails, Vol XXIV

For all you Arabic number snobs, that’s volume 24 of your favorite cringeworthy church signs. Order up!!!

Mom, mom, can I PLEEEEASE go to that church Sunday?

Pretty sure folks needing a 5X T-shirt aren’t into plain toast.

Funny stuff. Gotta admit.

A fair question was raised. How do all these church folk get away with pirating big corporate logos?

Can’t a brother hitch a ride?

Who’s the white guy?

Nuance and context, BE DAMNED!

Not sure if this is white Jesus or that guy from the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” commercials.

Yaknow, on Rotten Tomatoes, that ratio would be, like, seventeen percent. Just sayin’.

Gotta love Tea Bag references in church.

Rev. Eeyore, presiding.

I know this guy named Jesus; you’ve probably never heard of him.

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
