I was in a situation last year where I was required to attend church one sunday a month. Nevermind the details on that. But the creepiest thing I heard during one of those sessions was that such-and-such member was in charge of removal of demon possession. I wanted to go ask her just what constitutes demon possession and how do they tell the difference between that and mental illness. I didn't, though, because I didn't want them thinking I was possessed and attack me.
"Get up off your knees, and don't forget....Not a word to Mam or Dad!"
The thing said wasn't directed to me but I just found blatantly dishonest and shocking, where a member of the cloth, during an easter service I had to attend, the Rev caught an 11 year old boy giggling and cut off his "sermon" mid sentence to say...."Son, I had a boy once who laughed his way through a service once, two weeks later I was burying him....he died of an overdose of heroin...just think about that!". Not only was it bizarre, but also it seemed a real twisted thing to say to an impressionable mind.
But then again what I have found as I'm sure most of you have to is pretty much most of the arguments for religion are hugh on the "creepometer".
Giggling in church leads to drug use...hm. I wonder if it's some code for drug dealers to find prospective clients, I should test that theory. Except, I really don't want to enter a church during sermons.
I remain eternally grateful that if I had to be born into and raised in Christianity, it was low-church Episcopal. I can't imagine a church service without at least a little bit of giggling. And some Sundays, a whole lot of it!
