And the hits keep coming

One of my favorite web sites/blogs/whatever for the past decade or so has been The Sacred Sandwich. It is an extremely funny, tongue-in-cheek fake newspaper that hits the nail squarely on the head with its satirical articles. The Sandwich's favorite targets seem to be post-modernity (Emergent) and the Seeker Sensitive movement.

But today I found a particularly hilarious thought and it did not come from one of the articles posted there, but from the comment thread. The article was called Things I don't want to hear behind me in church and it contains a great list of reasons why you might prefer to sit in the back of church. But in the comment thread the conversation turned to my personal pet peeve in church, on the road, in the grocery store ... cell phones.

One person complained of folks whose cell phones go off in church and their ring tone is set to Led Zeppelin. To which another responded with this scripture (?) quote:

“The ringing thou hast not prevented. And a thrashing with wheat stalks shall be thy due punishment. For the merchants of the earth have waxed rich with the assortment of tones. Lament and wail for your bill is in the mail.”
First Opinions 3:17
