An Open Letter to all Churches that have Marquee’s on Their Signs:
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I implore you in the name of our Lord to go right now and destroy your signs that contain marquee writings on them. It is like the cocaine of church life…no one can ultimately resist putting up messages that ultimately embarrass most of your congregants and bring shame upon the name of Jesus. You have proved unable to resist the urges of an angry Pastor intent on keeping Christmas with a capital “C.” Or the nice secretary that no one has the heart to tell her that her “message” on the sign is ridiculous. Or the deacon in charge of church signs who steals trite phrases from other “church-sign-addicts” for his church sign. Therefore…remove the sign. NO MORE MARQUEES! Please.
Your fellow believer,
This sign has been up at a Catholic church close to my house ALL Christmas season long! Seriously. Are you kidding me?!!? This is the message you want to communicate to the community during Christmas?!?! Don’t get me wrong…no one appreciates a good joke or even an off-color somewhat crass use of sarcasm and humor like me! But this…really?!?! Do we need anymore help with the perception of “works” righteousness or an exterior superficial faith. Come on!!! (By the way…it looks like someone else didn’t like it and threw a rock threw the sign…just for the record…it wasn’t me)
Ironically, right across the street is a PUBLIC SCHOOL!! And this is the message they put on their marquee. Which one these two signs are more Christian?!
