Church sign
While in Oklahoma City yesterday for my priest support group meeting I saw a sign outside of a church which read:

The Lord says:
You catch 'em.
I'll clean 'em.
Now, I love fishing (though it has been some time since I have been able to do it) and I understand the analogy the Lord himself used with regard to fishing for fish versus fishing for men, however, I think this is going a bit too far with the analogy. I understand the Lord cleans us by washing our souls and bodies with his mercy, but the image of the Lord gutting me with a knife and taking out my air bladder ... I don't know ... maybe.
