Less churches, more bakeries!

Less churches, more bakeries!
Forgive me for being cynical here, but MORE churches for what?!…
Aren’t there enough already?
Churches, SECTS, cults, denominations, priests, fathers, pastors, nuns; more and more in our suburbs, to on and on pester the neighbourhood.
I have seen THOUSANDS of churches in my life and the moral ground of society is still bad [priests & other religious workers continue to give bad examples, exploiting the naïve].
That is, after TWO THOUSAND YEARS of faith and churches.
Something is wrong, folks [do you care to tell me what it is?].
I therefore vote for LESS churches, and more bakeries, please!

Jesus would love it! Make cakes instead of the weird preaching of a faulty gospel!
Let us convert ALL churches into bakeries, including cathedral, convents and monasteries! Amen?
PS: Teach the pope to bake and he would be doing something useful, too.

RE: Less churches, more bakeries!
As I've mentioned before, I've been reading through The Slacktivist's fantastic, if overly-thorough and somewhat vindictive, critique of the Left Behind series. All this talk of religious bakeries has led me to recall one of the greatest pieces of advice the Slacktivist gives.

He commented on the sad fact that evangelical Christians don't tip in restaurants. This is true. They don't. They should, I think even they would admit that they should, but if you get 10% off of them you're lucky. Slacktivist suggests that if you're a Christian, you should always tip 20%. If you're going to pray aloud in a restaurant, witness to ANYONE, or leave a gospel tract, make it 40%. As a former waiter, I couldn't agree more. Sundays were a day for a $2 tip off a $40 meal, placed ever-so-discreetly inside a gospel tract hoping to save my soul. I always considered my soul worth at least 20%.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.

I know what you mean..there are 7 churches within a 20 minute walk from my house. But i don't have to go inside, it does not bother me. And besides, some of the old churches are really pretty.

The person that is truly happy is not the one who gets everything they want, but the one who learns to be happy with what they have.

RE: Less churches, more bakeries!
Sure, when you get the odd Anglican, Catholic, or occasionally an old Lutheran or Methodist church (very occasionally on that last one.) But I live in the south. Baptists as far as the eye can see. There is an absolutely gorgeous one on the interstate near downtown Atlanta, though (I think it's Episcopalian).

But generally speaking, pretty churches are a northern thing. There are exceptions, but not many.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.
