Shit people say to ministers

Here’s a video sort-of following a current meme. If you can’t cope with swearing, go for a walk, have a coffee, chat with a friend instead:

The actual meme, of course, would lead to a video “shit ministers say”. Now that would be an interesting video. And so easy to find examples for.

  1. Bosco, I couldn’t cope with the swearing, but, despite your warning, I listened. Now that I’m freaked out, I blame you anyway for putting temptation in my way. 😉

  2. How does he know the bathroom habits of so many? I guess it’s the road to ruin to have a female president/leader, like erm Germany!

  3. That was really pretty normal for what a Priest/Pastor hears every day. The stuff that really freaks Priests out is stuff like:
    ‘No, my boyfriend doesn’t really hit me all that often’.

  4. Just watched the second video, which was so funny that I almost peed sitting down.

    I actually love to use those six passages as a test for biblical translation philosophy: how does one convey in English that the Hebrew is using a colloquial expression meaning “males”? My favourites: NEB “every mother’s son”; NJB “every manjack”. The (N)RSV just wimps out on this one.

    Still tears in my eyes from that nonsense… 🙂

  5. Once I stopped laughing, I’m seriously hoping that the second video clip is a spoof, not a real preacher. Otherwise the real problem with America today is the seminaries graduating preachers who preach like that – regardless of how they pee!

  6. Wow… That second video was crazy!

    Favorite line (that I hear OFTEN) from the first video is, “I’m spiritual, but I’m not religious.”. 🙂

    • Thanks, Deborah. Without trying to argue people into a particular position, I’d be interested in what they mean by “spiritual” and “religious” – and how they maintain and nourish their spiritual life. Blessings.
