The Cause of the Fire…? August 26, 2010

The Cause of the Fire…?

I’m not happy that a church in Oregon caught fire.

But the headline for this article is just too good not to mention…

Burning bush ignites Woodburn church

You’re all going to a non-existent Hell for laughing at that.

  • I have no comment about the church catching fire, but that headline is an instant classic.

  • Brandon

    First Touchdown Jesus, now this. Is God trying to tell his followers something?

    Woodburn church? Wood fucking burn church? A fucking burning bush? You’ve got to be shitting me. This is fucking amazing.

  • Aegis

    Doubly so if the Bush was being burned in effigy. XD

  • I thought you all could appreciate this one. You just KNOW someone over there at kgw couldn’t help themselves when they came up with that headline! I’m surprised there haven’t been more comments on it yet.

    Well, it is a church located in Woodburn. Of course atheists like me can be pretty sure there’s just a natural reason for this (and the Touchdown Jesus fire) and no supernatural explanation for it, but some of those who actually believe in their religion might be wondering if their god’s sending them signs…

    In any case, the headline is pretty funny.

  • *giggle-snort*

    Epic. Win.

  • Epistaxis

    Bah, they’re just going to take it as a sign and redouble their faith.

  • JT

    This is just a few miles from where I live. Also, the irony is delicious.

  • Philip

    Woodburn aside, this would have made my day if a subheading said “stone tablets, almond branch found in wreckage.”

  • Danish Atheist

    That is rich!!

  • Nicole

    Sadly it took me a second but wow.


    I want to print it out and hang it up.

  • Jeff B.

    When will these sinners learn to repent and accept Thor into their hearts.

  • Danº

    It’s not a headline from The Onion?!

    ha ha ha!
    Epic Win indeed.

  • Nordog

    Reminds me of the Little Hope Baptist Church in Texas (actually, there are at least two).

    One has a particularly pessimistic cemetery…

  • Kimpatsu

    Oh, irony, thy name is atheism…

  • SteelClipper57

    I had woodburn once. The doctor gave me a shot.

  • Colleen

    In the university’s newspaper a few years ago there was an article about the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship bus spontaneously catching fire on the way back from helping rebuild a church in Louisiana.
