This prayer has made the rounds and just about every blog has weighed in. Here’s your chance. Is this a light and funny moment in which, as Pastor Nelms said, he obeyed the biblical injunction to “in everything give thanks?”
Or was this a sacrilege against Christ? Did this Baptist (I’m not sure if he is Southern Baptist – no evidence that he is) pastor seem more intent on seeking God or on entertaining the crowds? Is it appropriate to give thanks for your “smoking hot wife?” And is saying, “In Jesus’ name, boogety-boogety-boogety” an appropriate close?
I love humor. I love a good joke. But I found this tasteless and profane. It is not my desire to judge Joe Nelms or question his faith or his motives, but for me this was way out of bounds.
What say you?
(Not sure why, but ads appear when I run this player. I just don’t know how to get rid of that.)
