Call for more church sign iReports

Editor's Note: This church sign photo comes to us courtesy of Aleisha Benefield.  She snapped it in Rainbow City, Alabama.  You may know John Tesh as the former host of Entertainment Tonight or as a musician.  These days he is also hosting "The John Tesh Radio Show: Music and Intelligence for Your Life."

Remember: we're looking for your pictures of church/temple/mosque signs.

If you've got a good one, post it as a CNN iReport and we'll feature the best ones on the Belief Blog.

    "Scheduled for demolition" is my favorite church sign.

    Hmmm, Google the topic to find for example:

    "If you pause to think– You'll have cause to thank!

    -As sure as God puts his children in the furnace, He will be in the furnace with them.

    -God won't be looking for your medals, degrees or diplomas–, He'll be looking for your scars.

    -Give God what's right–, not what's left!

    -Trade God your pieces for His peace.

    -When you get tired talking to your friend about God–, talk to God about your friend.

    -It's hard to stumble when you're on your knees.

    -"Will the road you're on get you to my place?"....God

    -'Pray' is a four letter word that you can say anywhere (except in a public school).

    -Make your eternal reservations now- 'smoking' or 'non-smoking'?

    -Jesus built us a bridge, with 2 boards and 3 nails.

    -Count your blessings! Recounts are OK- God Bless you all,"

    Bottom line: The topic is outdated and should be pulled.

    The first step towards understanding religion is knowing that it is false. Until then, attempting to impart such wisdom makes you naive.

    Once a day WARNING for new commentators:

    • The moderators of this blog have set up a secret forbidden word filter which unfortunately not only will delete or put your comment in the dreaded "waiting for moderation" category but also will do the same to words having fragments of these words. For example, "t-it" is in the set but the filter will also pick up words like Hitt-ite, t-itle, beati-tude, practi-tioner and const-tution. Then there words like "an-al" thereby flagging words like an-alysis and "c-um" flagging acc-umulate or doc-ument. And there is also "r-a-pe", “a-pe” and “gra-pe”, "s-ex", and "hom-ose-xual". You would think that the moderators would have corrected this by now considering the number of times this has been commented on but they have not. To be safe, I typically add hyphens in any word that said filter might judge "of-fensive".

    • More than one web address will also activate “waiting for moderation”. Make sure the web address does not have any forbidden word or fragment.

    1. Here's my latest list – this seems like a good spot to set this down, as nobody's posting much on this thread.....
    bad letter combinations / words to avoid if you want to post that wonderful argument:
    Many, if not most are buried within other words, but I am not shooting for the perfect list, so use your imagination and add any words I have missed as a comment (no one has done this yet)
    – I found some but forgot to write them down. (shrugs).
    c-um.........as in doc-ument, accu-mulate, etc.
    sp-ic........as in disp-icable (look out Sylvester the cat!)
    ho-mo...whether ho-mo sapiens or ho-mose-xual, etc.
    t-it.........const-itution, att-itude, ent-ities, etc.
    tw-at.....as in wristw-atch, (an unexpected one)
    va-g....as in extrava-gant, va-gina, va-grant
    ar-se....yet "ass" is not filtered!
    jacka-ss...but ass is fine lol
    p-is.....as in pi-stol, lapi-s, pi-ssed, etc.
    There are more, so do not assume that this is complete.
    okay words that you might not expect to be filtered....!!!
    Here's a word to add to the banned list: co-co-on
    whether it's c-oc, or co-on, this is ridiculous."

    Maybe most believers take worship and God too seriously to have cute messages on their signs? Seems to be only a small-time Christian thing anyway.

      There's a church near where I live that does the same thing. Maybe I ought to take a few pics. I like the ones that CNN posts on the upper right of the screen. Some of them are pretty funny. But yeah, they are the one church of all of the ones around me that does this. Like you said maybe the others are too serious. It's too bad we don't get much signs like this from Pagans or Atheists or other faiths besides Christians. That might spi-ce things up a bit!

      What a meaningless statement. I know someone smarter then John Tesh. Stephen Hawking.

      Now, the real question is, how stupid to you have to be to consider John Tesh an intellectual. I mean really.
