Another theological nit-pick

I don't feel so guilty about this one because Justin noticed it too.

We were listening to Weekend America in the car on Saturday. (It's co-hosted by Bill Radke, who used to do a news satire show called Rewind from KUOW in Seattle. I had a little radio crush on him back then.) They did a segment on the Church of Brunch, which is, well, exactly what it sounds like...a potluck and short period of non-religious singing and sharing for people who don't feel comfortable in churches but still want some sort of community.

One parishioner said something along the lines of, "I tried out a bunch of churches. I went to the Unitarian church and the Mennonite church, and they were all okay, but sooner or later all of them told me, 'If you don't do X, Y, and Z you're going to hell.'"

Justin and I were like, "The Unitarians told you that?" (I'm also skeptical the Mennonites did.) Wow. I'm surprised. I don't really know what else to say.

I'm reminded of the lyrics in a certain Newsboys' song, "..they don't serve breakfast in hell."
