Pigs in Church

Just when you think you've seen it all...

One of Nashville's most peculiar charismatic preachers hosted a most unusual service yesterday. The title of the sermon was "Mascots." You can read a full account of the service here.

Cash rewards were given to any student who could catch a chicken or a pig. Evidently, the pigs really made a mess, depositing little loads across the front of the church. Later, cheerleaders tumbled down the aisles and led cheers. Two mascots came out on the platform. The sermon had absolutely nothing to do with the spectacle but was a "hook" to get "nonbelievers" to come to church.

You just can't make things like this up...

So what did you in-laws say about this?

This doesn't really surprise me that much coming from Cornerstone. I also really like your adjective of peculiar to describe this church. Very nice!
