Ala. Church Youth Swallow Live Goldfish

Ala. Church Youth Swallow Live Goldfish
(Boston Globe)
“Through this ministry, kids are surrendering their lives to Jesus and developing a deeper relationship with Jesus,” Martin said. “The method of the ministry that we use to bring people is going to change, but the message is going to stay consistent.”

In teaching the lesson about fear, participants in last week’s round were asked to pull a number—between one and three—from a bowl that would indicate how many live Comet goldfish would be swallowed.

As always, and I repeat myself here, this is all old hat for the Indians. Fear? Pshaw! It’s holistic medicine, baby!

This is really, really disturbing. Somebody call the ASPCA, for crying out loud.

Goldfish?!? Luxury.

Why when I was a boy we had to get bit by a rattlesnake to demostrate our love for the Christ.

Mark 16:18.

By the way, did the rattlesnake pull through?

Ashley said...

Oooooooh, why you... One of these days, Alice.

Goldfish are our friends. Why would you eat goldfish for christ?

Plan 8 said...

Bob, maybe Christ wants you to be a sharp Methuselah.

Paul said...

...And, of course, Jesus wouldn't want them to eat ANY Goldfish, unless they can miraculously provide Goldfish for the multitude.
