"I kissed a girl and I liked it, then I went to Hell."

I love reading church message boards. There's one by the house I grew up in that was always good for a laugh. They put stuff up like: "The light of the world knows no power failures." But this one is the best I've heard in awhile.

For 24 hours, outside Havens Corners Church in Columbus, OH, the sign read: "I kissed a girl and I liked it, then I went to Hell."

The quote is taken from the pop hit "I Kissed a Girl," by Katy Perry (listen, watch). Apparently, Pastor David Allison said he was worried about the influence the song has on teen girls. He also mentioned the pornographic-y video.

He says he took the sign down not because it was a gay-bashing horror show, but because parishioners has no idea what the sign was referring to.

When I think of all the misogynistic trash out there, it's hard to believe that THIS song is the one Allison is concerned about. Okay...no...it's really not that hard to believe.

When I used to live in Seffner, FL... there was this little church with great messages. My favorite was...

"Jesus Christ... Git-R-Done!"

Very inspiring!

Good signs I've seen

"Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you.”

“Remember, the rabbit foot didn't work for the rabbit."

Here's an even better church sign. And actually, it's the same one that used to condemn girl kissers to hell:

Little doubt, the dude is completely fair.
