Oh my..nice side of condemnation…
It’s the “FUNDY X-Games!”
Maybe they are trying to draw a cultural example to Malcom X? Christ – X. Malcom X.
the problem is you don’t know if someone just goofed or if that is intentional. 😕
I’m pretty sure it’s intentional. Small white building with a steeple, can hold about 65 tops. They put up other signs like this too
Hope this is easily read by passing cars or else there will be rubber necking wrecks from all the “Huh? What’dat say?”‘s
Can’t tell if it’s clever, creative or just plain combative.
Oh, I LOVE those signs that decide to put a whole thesis on one sign. You have to stop and hold up traffic to read it.
Yeah-almost a pre-planned road hazard!
And such small print LOL
If its more than three lines…I just look the other way.
You can go there after playing on your Christ-box or having a Christ-ray at the hospital.
I play my Christbox360 everyday!
I love a clever pun. Good one, Jonathan.
To be 100% accurate wouldn’t that be “Christbochrist 360?”
Christbox lol love it!
Everyone: “Christbox” is a reference to this: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/368914/december-16-2010/jesus-is-a-liberal-democrat
God, I love Stephen Colbert!
I’m not a fan of sacrilegiousness, but this guy’s point was actually true.
Misspelling alert. wait… did I spell that right?
ZOMG! Nice find Avg Joe! I thought that was a sarcastic joke when someone said it the other day.
I’m reconsidering my PERVious position too. George is strong with Darrell today 😎
I tell ya, if I was an unregenerate average joe, this sign would make me run to the “altar” in that church and “get saved” right then and there..
just realized that Avg Joe submitted the photo.. sigh.. I wasn’t implying you were unregenerate 😳
Getting the mass out of Christmas? Or not? I’m confused.
my wife thought i was crazy pulling the car over to take this picture 😛
I guess they DO want the “mas” out of Christmas.
(See last couple of day’s comments for background on the “Keep the Mass in Christmas” controversy.)
Ok, I thought you were all joking the other day when you first told me about Christ-X. I had no idea this was real!
I thought I knew where this was going but it left me scratching my head. Mocking the abbreviation Xmas? Slamming Catholics? Or both??? You win this time, Fundies.
Both! Being able to slam catholics and pagans at the same time is like bonus points (although its like shooting fish in a barrel, I mean whats the difference!?) *No offense meant catholic friends, I was merely resembling the fundy viewpoint of the catholic “Faith”
Like Rid-X? Or Jason-X? 😯
Nothing says Fundy like a passive-aggressive message on the church sign.
It kind of warns you, before you enter the doors, the kind of psychological warfare going on inside the building, doesn’t it?
The sign just warns you: Beware, inside this building is a gathering of psychological misfits, including passive-aggressive, schizophrenic, bipolar, narcissistic, sociopathic,and leader dependent people.
Yeah, that’s totally non judgemental!
And, that’s totally non judgmental about being non judgmental.
Having spent most of my life in small IFB churches, I totally know where you’re coming from, Dave. Since there are MANY Bible-preaching churches in our area, I think some people come to a small church because they are socially awkward and uncomfortable in large groups of people.
Like the man who came up to me after our Sunday Christmas program and said, “You know it wasn’t really an inn, right?” “Mmmm. Oh.” “Campground. There was no room in the campground.” “OK.” This man never tries to get to know people; he just likes to tell them little obscure “truths” that he’s studied.
And, thatâ€™s totally non judgmental about being non judgmental, about being non judgmental..wait…now I’m getting dizzy
LOL.. I was hoping you’d go there.
We could go on all week!
Y’all are so judgmental about not being judgmental about not being judgmental about not being judgmental. Or something like that.
Thanks for keeping me in check. I think of these places as offering a drug to a needy people. Many psychologists would agree that it is a dependency. Did not mean to sound more judgmental than factual.
Dave, you’re so judgmental… or were you non-judgmental?… or were you judicial?…no, no… or were you jovial?… no, no… jocund?…no… jaded?… no… jazzy… THAT’S IT!
@Dave: I can’t speak for Natalie and Theo, but I happen to agree with what you said. Personally, if I saw a sign like that I’d make a mental note to *never ever* step foot in that church! Speaking from experience, I’d actually kind of appreciate the warning, instead of finding out later the hard way.
I was jaberwakied.
I couldn’t go to that church, because I’d be in traction after wrecking from trying to read the sign.
You would really have to go through some experiences like I have to make broad brush statements like this. Many of us have, and like you said, you make a mental note of it.
@Dave… LOL…. Love it!…
Okay, you’re now on my official best friend list… yep.
@Dave: ❓ What the heck does that have to do with anything?
What part? Painting broad brush statements or personal experiences of spiritual abuse?
You will be called great among the inhabitants of the land of SFL. 🙂
@Dave – Oh, gee.. I mean, golly… Well, gawrsh… I just…well, my… I mean… I’m speechless…
(for once and only for a brief second)
I did not mean to minimize anyone else’s personal experiences here. I’m just saying to make a factual statement about something can often appear to be judgmental to others. I suppose I am trying to say when you know people well (you have lived among them) then you can make honest assessments about who they are and what they do. Usually, most of people at SFL are pretty keen to the nature of the IFB fundamental and religion masquerading in the form of Christian. What is perceived to be judgmental and harsh to others is just plain truth to the one who knows the essence of man made religion.
This is so … special. I don’t even know where to begin.
haha, sounds like “Jason X,” arguably the worst of the Friday the 13th movies.
which someone mentioned above already, hehe.
You mean there were ANY good sequels? 😀
like most of those franchises, the Friday movies get progressively more terrible i think! this scene from Jason X takes the cake as the worst thing ever filmed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTIuYjzqBU0.
I know I could Google this, but I’m feeling lazy and its my birthday tomorrow. *horribly transparent and shameless plug*
But, was the first movie the one where Jason (which we never see) attacks a bunch of horny kids at a camp? Or am I thinking of another movie?
Happy birthday Natalie! The 23rd is my birthday too 🙂
@Natlie and Amilyn – Hope you guys both have a great birthday!!!! And a very merry ChristX!
Amilyn, Happy Birthday to you!!!
Isn’t it wonderful that the rest of the world is looking older and we’re not? 😉
Personally, I think we should get a SFL bus together and all go to this church… NIV’s in hand.
Ladies, remember how you used to zip your jeans up in high school with a coat hanger?… yep, its time to do that again.
Yeah, some jeans designed by Christian Dior or Xtian
Dior for that matter!
All I’m saying is PAJAMA Jeans!!!
Smooth ” butt lifting design”
I’ve seen these in a store! I took a doubletake.
“They look like designer jeans.”
But, at least we can be harlots AND comfortable at the same time!
Pajama jeans: the coolest fashion trend since leg warmers.
They would only be cooler if they were stirrup pants. I actually saw someone wearing those the other day – and she completed the outfit with flip-flops. It’s the latest fashion.
Flip flops? Really?
No, to be circa 1992, you MUST wear those Sam and Libby-type ballet slippers with stirrup pants.
Oh and don’t forget the big sweater.
This was the wardrobe of choice for me, before I lost my mind for a while… oh, ahem, excuse me… before I became a fundy.
Correction… I’ve always been a fundy, but before I became an uber fundie.
Oh my..flash backs to the 80’s. My heathen days of jelly shoes, neon, friendship beads and leg warmers of every color…let’s not forget elephant pants and spiral perms…oh ya.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
Bonus points for Natalie on the “uber Fundy” nickname…like!
I had to google what a spiral perm was, I remember when all the hot girls had those.
Can I wear a skirt that shows my knees and really tall open toe shoes?
And for you big kids (like me), don’t forget to track Santa by NORAD. They’ve been doing this since 1955. Military personnel have volunteered their time to do the recordings. Here’s the link and below is a link that tells the story of how it all began and how the military got into it. I track Santa every Christmas.
I just realized that that looked so much like spam. Trust me, its not and neither is this even though this probably looks like it, too… Okay, you don’t HAVE to go to the link… just put the address in the address bar if you’re worried… It is really cute to track and always puts me in the Christmas spirit… Okay, not the Spiritual spirit, but the secular Santa Claus, Christmas trees, presents wrapped with bows, eggnog, Charlie Brown, cookies and milk, spirit.
Natalie, quit spamming us!! 😆
I have tracked Santa for years. Can’t wait for X-mas eve with the grandkids. The looks on their faces are priceless when they think they are watching Santa get closer to us.
HF has to work Christmas Eve. He’s giving Santa a police escort into the city. 😉
I guess that cross-country runners are trying to take the christianity out of cross-country by calling it X-country, and moto-X, don’t get me started!
Hang on, some Christians actually DO say “Christ-X”? I thought that was a joke made up by the Landover Baptist writers.
Well, lurker, now I need to know – where abouts in Australia are you from? There aren’t a whole lot of fundies in Australia, so we tend to know of each other, if we don’t know each other. (That’s also a reason to remain anonymous).
I’m not a fundie or ex-fundie or anything myself — my family’s Orthodox (mostly-non-practicing).
It almost seems that Landover Baptist applies Poe’s Law in new ways, and Fundyland gets the ideas from them.
Hey, the sign says, “whichever I prefer”. I can live with that. I prefer my big Methodist, all-inclusive, three-services on Christmas Eve, tree, Santa, AND wise men Xmas.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find it very anti-Catholic. I mean, “mass” doesn’t even start with a chi in Greek. 🙄
I guess they meant euXaristia.
Most Americans don’t know that the X in Xmas is a Greek letter, standing for the name XRISTOS. Shucks, I’ll bet most don’t know that the bible was written in Greek.
One good benefit of us moving to a new state the week of Christmas is that we rode around town and immediately noted which churches we would *NOT* be visiting because of signs like this.
So, they celebrate “ChristChrist”?
