GIVE US YOUR BALD, YOUR SHORT AND YOUR COLOUR BLIND

Feeling left out? …

CHRISTIAN churches are getting ready to launch Australia’s biggest cross-denominational media campaign, featuring the ultimate pin-up boy: Jesus Christ.

Mr Willis said the campaign would not shy away from the reality that some people had had negative experiences with Christian churches, but Jesus – who had stood up to religious leaders and those using the church for financial gain – ”stands up to scrutiny”. ”We acknowledge that some people have been dealt a rough deal by the church but Jesus, when he was here and was talking to people, he cut through all that as well,” he said.

The church has published a book, Everybody Welcome, advising the clergy to consider that some parishioners have ”special needs”, such as the bald, short people, the colour-blind – and readers of tabloid newspapers.

Oh, joy.

I am loved.
