God verses Gays? (Or something…)

Have you seen that movie, The Man That Sued God?

Well, I guess this is sort of the opposite. (Except less funny)

According to The Metro, a woman from Nebraska, America, decided to try represent God in court and sue all homosexual people…

From The Metro:

Sylvia Ann Driskell had her case thrown out by a court in Nebraska when she asked it to decide once and for all whether homosexuality was a sin.

In his summary, Judge John Gerrard said: ‘This court is not the place to seek opinions regarding theological matters; this particular forum is closed and the case will be dismissed.’

He also said: ‘To the extent that she asks for anything from the court, it is a declaration that homosexuality is sinful – a question that the court cannot answer. The court may decide what is lawful, not what is sinful’.

See The Metro to see the claim she filed at the court.

Well at least she wasn’t holding Westboro Baptist style signs all over the place I guess.

Any suggestions on anything better that Sylvia could have done with her time?

 

What Can Church Learn From Star Wars?

In case you missed it, it was Star Wars day earlier this week. A day when the internet celebrates all that is great about Star Wars. But as this a Church blog, I’m going to ask the serious question, what can the Church learn from Star Wars?

Please bear in mind that these are lessons from Star Wars. Any problem with the content of these lessons? Take it up with George Lucas…

  1. Church Member disagrees with you? Blow up their planet.
  2. Teach young people about faith, it may help them blow up a Death Star one day.
  3. Group leader not working out? Force chocking is possibly an acceptable option.
  4. Disagree with that Church down the road? Blow up their planet.
  5. There’s a time for fighting, and a time for running away and looking after yourself.
  6. Disagree with visiting preacher? Blow up their planet.
  7. Someone disagreeing with the lead pastor? Strike them down with Force lightning.
  8. Youth worker being a pain? Freeze him or her in carbonite.
  9. Don’t underestimate little hairy people.
  10. Funeral pyre is an underused funeral resource.

Any more to be included?
