    My first thoughts exactly. People get religious about all sorts of stuff – even not being religious. The Pharisees were religious, and we know how that turned out.

Maybe bad message sign ideas are even more a fail than religions are…

Well, perhaps it would be good to understand religion.

Religion _can_ be:
“…a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a supernatural agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.”
– en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coreligionist

But it doesn’t _have_ to be.

Abraham Heschel said:
“A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.”

I happen to agree with him. So, in that case, Jesus was (and is) a deeply religious man.

The Christian religion should be one of holding God and man in thought at one time and at all time. Christians should suffer harm done to others and seek to alleviate it and love as hard as possible – to push back the darkness and show the light. To spread hope in the midst of despair.

But too often it is not. Too often the Christian religion is about rules and dogma and orthodoxy.

So, the RIGHT RELIGION doesn’t fail, you just have to know the difference I think.

I think they’re trying to say that the problems of religion trace to particular people. Something you need a lot more than a small sign to portray.

someone should do a book of traveling the country finding ridiculous church signs.

That’s like Toyota blaming it’s drivers for the recent recalls.

Hehehehe, this gave me a good laugh! They have half of it right. People fail religion AND religion fails people. Why? Because God didn’t create us for religion, he created us for relationship.

Pat Robertson blasts SNL over Jesus, Tebow skit!
Hmm. SNL has poked fun with Jesus before… Chances are, Pat wouldn’t have said anything about this skit had it not been poking fun at Tebow… SNL has used “Jesus” in skits many many times. There seems to be a double standard among some Christians when the religious sati
