Some churches have them, too--the immature youth workers who are determined to build their popularity with the kids by putting down Sunday school: "This isn't stupid old Sunday school any more; this is cool youth group!"
And the mainline denominational community has one, too--the denomination that is determined to build its crumbling popularity with the nonchurched by putting down all the other churches with a bum rap.
Take a look at the United Church of Christ spots that are soon to hit your cable TV stations: on Windows Media, on Real Player, or on QuickTime.
The final voice-over claims: "The United Church of Christ. No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here"--unlike all those other crummy old churches like the one we parodied in the ad.
Oh, just one more thing: "You are welcome here in the UCC, unless you happen to be one of those fundie types who carries a big, fat black Bible, worn from constant use. And also if you actually believe historic Christianity or belong to the Biblical Witness Fellowship. If so, prepare to eject, Buster!"
