Fundamental pastor fired for not condemning those who watch Super Bowl

Congregants shocked at no mention during morning service

A fundamental independent Baptist pastor in Georgia was fired Sunday afternoon for failing to use his morning sermon to condemn members who skip church to watch the Super Bowl.

The chairman of the church deacon board could not be reached for comment because he was home sick with the flu, but his wife spoke on his behalf. “That young preacher knew when we hired him what our expectations were. We don’t condone skipping Sunday night service for the Super Bowl around here, and we expect our pastor to condemn people who do so.”

In an impromptu meeting, the church elders elected a pastoral search committee consisting of eight women and one 90-year old widower and scheduled their first meeting at kickoff time 6:30 pm Sunday night.

The men of the church planned to meet at their sick deacon chair’s home and pray for the Eagles to cover the spread a quick recovery.

Good satire is always close enough to reality that it is at least marginally believable.

Salvation by grace alone through faith alone...oh and don't miss Sunday evening service to watch the Super Bowl or all that grace and faith stuff count for nothing. I'm wondering how many of this church's active members ever miss any meeting for any reason...are they in danger of hell fire too?

Leave the satire to the mainstream media. No satirist can compete with them.
