Could This Be the Worst Sermon Ever?

This is why we need a bar exam for ministers. I wasn't sure whether to laugh, cry or cuss. Forget the problem of evil -- how about the problem of bad sermons? To be fair, this is just the last few minutes of the message. I'm sure the first 20 minutes were rife with coherency, reason and displays of hermeneutical acumen.

Wow. This one has quickly (and infamously) spread throughout the blogosphere. We just posted on it recently. There used to be something like a bar exam for aspiring ministers: it was called an ordination council in which the hopeful pastor was cross-examined by the elders of his denonmination to ascertatin his fitness for the ministry. Sadly, now every wacko that "feels the call" gets the church's stamp of approval. By the way, are you considered to be MORE holy if you can write your name in the snow? :-)

Glad to know I'm doing my part to keep America strong by pissing (hey, that's God's word, not mine, take up any beef you have about my language with The Lord) while standing up. Sometimes, when I feel like America needs an extra shot in the arm, I'll go ahead and whip it out and piss (again, you know to whom complaints should be submitted) while standing in line at the grocery store, standing fully erect. At least, that's what Ima start doing.

Chris, in all seriousness, thanks for posting this sermon. It helps me understand why some people get down on organized religion from time to time. It should serve as a reminder to be part of the solution, and not part of the problem.

Yes, I do think this could possibly be the worst sermon ever.
