Younger people’s positive attitude about attending organized religion has cooled off. Sunday Mass suffers a lack of not wrapping the “all praise be and thanks to the lord” shit up within a reasonable time. How many years has the church forced sinners to decide between asking for forgiveness and watching their favorite football team. I mean Big Ben is getting up there in age and God’s been around since what, the beginning of time? Easy decision for a sensible devout Christian. But now religion is attempting to become cooler in an effort to amass more members since they’re the only other organized group other than the military that suffers from applicants that just can’t make the cut. Enter Beyoncé. She just bought a church.
Beyonce now has her very own church!
Queen Bey’s the new owner of a stone structured, 7,500 sq. ft house of God in The Big Easy. The New Orleans church — which is more than 100 years old — was listed at $850,000.
Beyonce’s church was built in the early 1900s, but has been out of commission as a place of worship for some time due to its church members passing away.
If there was anymore proof needed that organized religion is for stupid people and women this is it. I thought the Church coffee shop combo full of college students was already weird but now Beyoncé is the middleman between the Lord and lowly Earth dwellers like I. If the mission was really to praise god than those calling themselves pastors and priests would lose the gimmicks. Even with the declining attendance numbers. Because isn’t that what faith is about? Or is that just something the church has to tell people to come back each week after some of these bible stories don’t hold up after a little rumination. Either way in Beyoncé Knowles name we pray, Amen.
