I saw the following video last night.

A minister (youth minister?), in an effort to generate excitement in the congregation, opted to make his entrance by riding his dirt bike right into his church building.

This ended poorly when the throttle stuck during a wheelie attempt. The minister wound up with ligament damage to his right knee, and the building ended up with a hole in the wall from where the bike slammed into a corner.

If you were in this particular congregation, what would you have done?

Well, probably I would have gone to the driver's aid to see if he was ok, and delivered needed first aid.


Then after, probably helped clean up.

I'd probably do thesame. I'd  also be thinking 'what on earth was he thinking.' I mean what if some how he had lost control, and instead of causing a hole in a wall of the church, he unintentionally had injured a youth/ child? I am not saying he was irresponsible, but his idea was certainly not well thought out.

In view of this report I am going to propose a "No Motor Vehicle inside the Church" rule at the next parish council meeting.

People with a mission to save the earth want the earth to seem worse than it is so their mission will look more important.

An unwritten rule at any church should be: one (at least one in authority or similar) should be dissallowed from doing anything at the church, or with a group of children/ youth from the church (if the activity/ function is church related anyway) that is especially dangerous (or has the potential for being especially dangerous). If it is necessary, that should be a written rule.

If anyone's wondering, the show was "World's Dumbest" on TruTV.


IIRC, the specific episode was "World's Dumbest Motorheads".



Another episode, either "Dumbest Motorheads 3" or #5, meanwhile, features a reverend who just got busted for DUI #4.

here's the actual video


Fortunately, he only took out a table instead of one of the congregation.

Kermit (to Miss Piggy, who is trying to become Mrs Piggy the Frog):  I thought Gonzo was supposed to be the minister ....


 


LOL.


Seriously, I can only laugh at this.  Of course, I've gotten to where I think Pete trying the water-walking stunt and nearly drowning is the same kind of funny.

Knock and the door shall open.  It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.

1) ROFL 


2) run make sure he's ok feeling guilty. 


3) he's ok continue rofl.



Nothing wrong with the idea, it would have engaged the brain.  Most folks sleep or zone out in Church anyway.
