Honey, I Swear I got VD from the Pew

A Virginia Church feels that they should worship God the same way they came into the world. Naked.

Doesn't seem like a great idea to me. Could be distracting. Could be downright horrifying and make you question God's goodness in His creation.

"Pastor Allen Parker says it's not about the clothes, or lack thereof. He says it's about baring his soul to Christ and leading his flock down that path of righteousness, no matter what they're wearing," reports NBC 12.

I certainly wouldn't want to attend the second service of the day. Think of the horror of sitting in a warm spot where you know someone else was just sitting. Not good.

I'm not even crazy about an effusive sign of peace at Mass.

This is just one of many reasons I'm glad to be Catholic. Pastors don't feel the need to come up with gimmicks to drive up attendance. The thing is, this isn't even a good gimmick.



  1. The Adamite heresy of the 2nd-4th centuries.

    Been there, done that, didn't get the t-shirt for obvious reasons.

  2. May they get splinters you know where!

  3. Imagine a COLD pew! Sheesh! And I have trouble enough remembering the antibacteria stuff for my hands...

  4. Have you ever walked up to a bus seat and backed away because the last person who sat there left a cloud of funk? It's going to be really ripe at this church.

  5. Pastor.... how can I say this? Your alb is too short.

  6. There's an old gag to the effect that if you're feeling a bit down, just think of your high school maths teacher naked.

    This, however, is beyond a joke, beyond terrifying. EEEEEK!

  7. God made clothes for Adam and Eve. I guess God is not good enough for this pastor.
