A FOOL AND HIS MONEY

Filed at 1:09 pm under by dcobranchi

In response to some atheist advertising, Christians think they need to promote God. But at least one con artist minister believes he’s found a way to turn a pound or two:

In Britain, the Rev. George Hargreaves, leader of the Christian Party, said he was annoyed that buses running past his London office bore the atheists’ creed. So his minor political party bought advertising assuring people of God’s existence. Those ads also seek to raise money by encouraging people, for a $2 fee, to text “Amen.”

There’s a sucker born every minute. — Proverbs 32:1

Okay, I’m talking without having clicked the links, but if this is the story I’ve heard about, then the atheist messages are a response to christian messages that were put on the buses.

As far as paying two bucks to text “amen” I wish I had two dollars for every time I heard that word growing up.

Effective missionary work isn’t in the business of out-shouting people. It isn’t about winning arguements. It’s about offering people a cookie, and sharing the recipe if they want it.

I wish more Christians understood that. Heck, I even wish more Mormons understood it.
