(Unintentional) Church Sign Humor
I got the idea for this page one day while returning home from jury duty in Marietta, SC, when I saw a sign on a local church that read, verbatim:
If we called our selfs
Christian then why don't we
act like one
I decided then & there to collect the funniest and most bizarre of the numerous church marquee signs in upstate South Carolina. The results are as follows. Unfortunately, I saw a good number of suitably weird messages that I was unable to photograph, from the frightening ("The most precious freedom is freedom from sin") to the reassuringly sensible (the sign outside a black church in Piedmont, SC that read "God wants fruits of the spirit, not religious nuts").
This page is not intended to disparage or poke fun at any individual church, religion, or person. It is, however, intended to derive amusement from the lack of imagination, moderation, clarity, and sensibility often reflected on church marquees.
