IT’S RAP AND ROLL TIME FOR THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND … Yawn. Moonbats think this will save em.

Several days ago I was gonna post something in the nature of one of life’s annoyances. Nothing too serious really but bothersome. It was so minor I have forgotten now what it was.
But along came Drew and blew my little nothing out of the water with the story of his travails over the major move he and his wife were faced with.  So I didn’t share whatever the now non momentous event was.

Yesterday we had a flat tire.  Woo-hoo. big event.
Meanwhile we learn that Drew is busy with a hundred window house to take care of. So okay ... never mind about the flat tire. But I would have liked to learn a bit more about Mrs. Rich Lady and her fab. bottom. Ah well.  Drew’s secret. Phots Drew, Photos!

Anyway, how’s this for disaster ?
The Church of England in its infinate wisdom is making plans to hold services in RAP, in an effort to attract that group back to the fold.  Say what? That group was NEVER in to begin with.

This may be an interesting experiment for sure.  The rocket scientists in the church will in time issue a statement informing all and sundry how successful their little effort had been yadda,yadda.
They’ll issue that statement because they won’t have the balls to openly say they had it wrong from the start and that many have dropped out of attending services where Rap is the hymnal medium. That’s just me talking and yes, I could have it all wrong.  Don’t think so, but could.
Stay Tuned on this one.

MEANWHILE .....

Listen up, rappin’ crew, come on in and take a pew… church tries to appeal to the young

In the beginning, the elders gathered and set up a mighty cry: How are we to get young people into church? And, lo, they decreed: Let there be rap.
In a move which risks ridicule, the Church of England has turned to street culture in the hope of attracting new blood.
A radio advert will appeal to the lapsed faithful to ‘stop, turn around, walk back’ to church on Sunday.
The spoken message, voiced by a series of actors, is described by the Church as ‘a rap-style poem’.
The ad is the latest in a 15-year campaign by the C of E to use advertising to boost church attendances and attract the attention of those, in particular the young, who have no interest in Christianity.
Past efforts have met with mixed success. One mid-1990s slogan that declared Christmas to be a ‘bad hair day’ won universal mockery.
The C of E’s usual Sunday attendance figures dropped below the one million figure at the turn of the millennium and have fallen at the most recent count to 871,000.
The new advert, produced by a Christian agency based in Bradford, aims to assure its young target audience that they do not need to dress up to go to church.
In defiance of the idea of Sunday best, the 40-second routine, which is not set to a drum beat, suggests that congregations where people make an effort to look smart could lack sincerity.
The grammar also does little credit to the C of E’s efforts in the thousands of secondary and primary schools it helps run.

RAPPIN’ CREW?

My wild off the wall guess is that the C of E is desperate and this lasted bit of moonbat thinking will only accomplish what their detractors have been saying out loud for a long time.  Which is ... they haven’t got a clue and are pointless.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
