The only thing scarier than watching this Christian version of “SexyBack” was the realization that the church in question is only a two-minute drive from my parents’ house. I sometimes get gas at that Jewel Express…
I had a public dialogue with one of the pastors in that video (the one at the 0:50 mark) a few years back — and even talked about the church in I Sold My Soul on eBay. In fact, a misleading, full-of-error, pro-Creationism pamphlet that he wrote was the focus of one of my first posts on this site. Clearly, I’ve been missing out on a lot by not going back there….
For what it’s worth, I like the idea of a group of people performing random acts of kindness. Watching the video, though, it just feels like a promotional tool for the church and not a reflection of something good they were actually doing. No doubt they’re kind people, but if the camera turned off, I don’t think they’d be acting the same way.
