A "great" brochure about a "movie"

No, friends, I haven't forgotten about you.

Today's post is a little different: my Fishbowl material is pretty slim pickings right now, so I thought I'd bring you something I found as entertaining as a bad paper: a bad brochure that I picked up from a random place I was a couple months ago.

I'm "sure" you'll "enjoy" it.

Let me start by saying that I am a Christian. Let me finish by saying how embarrassed I am at times by other Christians.

I didn't think there was really anything wrong with the message here, only its presentation. I"m sure it's a fine church to attend. If a church's biggest problem is they have to deal with the fact that their brochures are weird, sounds good to me.

On a related note, I was listening to a story on NPR yesterday about an Imam and what he had to deal with and the town around him. Here's a quote from one of the townspeople:

"And after 9/11 — and we had over 20 people in this community who lost their lives that day — it makes you think," she said. "It's very difficult. It takes a leap of faith, really, to believe that they are here peacefully."

This pamphlet looks as though it's written by someone who just figured out all the formatting functions and uses them all to emphasize "his" POINT!

At least they haven't found the strike-through yet.

Dear anonymous. What we are looking at here is the brochure and not the message. I did start by saying I was a Christian. I would not be party to criticising the Christian, or indeed any, religion for a cheap laugh. Why did you remain anonymous, anyway?

As a fellow Christian, I, too, am often embarrassed by other Christians' crazy bumper stickers ("In Case of RAPTURE- my car's YOURS!" and "47 Saved!") and their silly brochures and websites.

Frankly, I think that there are much better ways to spread the Gospel.

DON'T "you" think?!?!?

That, and the implicit endorsement of Rapture theology, which to me, is might as well be a sub-textual neon sign, flashing "Back Away Slowly."

Kirk Cameron... a Hollywood star for sure.

Left Behind is pretty much heresy.

heh heh.
Reminds me of an episode of "The Colbert Report" when Stephen Colbert vehemently proclaims his Christianity:

"I am a real Christian! I read the "Left Behind" series three times!"

(or something to that effect.)
