Okay, I Fell For It

Ben turned me on to Wolf Warning, an article about a website that pastors can use to note troublemakers who go from church to church. Intriguing idea, but not so much with the "let's heal this person."

I admit, I read the article and fell for it.

Then I noticed some of the other articles on the site -- Bible code predicts Tenn. woman's hangnail, Southern Baptists launch pre-emptive strikes against Assemblies of God, etc.

Okay, so it's like a religious version of The Onion. Pretty funny stuff, though. Like this:

Actually, the page does exist (I expect you checked that out) and, though it's not very "nice" to warn pastors about difficult characters who might show up, there have been times I wish I had been warned!

The scary part is that people can imagine that kind of a web site...and that kind of parishioner.

But yes, WolfWarning is a spoof. But for my next example might I point you to the really radical religous right…Spoof or no spoof?

And don’t forget to sign up for next week's Evolution Sunday which, oddly, isn’t a spoof.
