Church Signs

Good post at Swiss Toni about church signs, and the rights and wrongs of proclaiming your beliefs as if they were hard fact. Ht the Britblog roundup, hosted by Amused Cynicism. Above is one of my favourites, but there are some truly dreadful ones here. Like this:

this is slightly better, though they probably cribbed the joke from Bruce Almighty

If all this makes you despair a Christendom's ability to come up with anything funny, then fear not. The Beaker Folk of Husborne Crawley have put up an advert for a new druid.

We are a group of 12 Beaker communities scattered across the hamlets to the east of Spalding.
Well, when we say communities, strictly speaking four of these communities have only one member each and there's only twenty-three of us in total. But we are dedicated to keeping true to our roots. Which is why we insist on worshipping only each within our our own Moot Houses, coming together only for the annual Falling Out ceremony where we remember why we don't get together any more often.

There's more, much more, and I'm overjoyed to discover that Ruth Gledhill has spotted this as well. Much deserved recognition for 'Archdruid Eileen', whoever he may be.
