What they mean to say is "700 people who practice Christianity as bumblefark hicks from Alabama practice it."

The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: CSB:

A while ago the wife and I were living in Scotland, being new to the area we went down the local church even though neither of us was particularly religious. Growing up "Church" had always been pretty chilled out stuff about being nice and how Jesus loves us all and with community events around Christmas and Easter. Anyway... this place was seemed a little more evangelical and conservative than we expected but nothing too odd until a day trip to Holy Island. It's a part time Island in the north of England that is completely cut off from the mainland every time the tide comes in. So we get there, do a little tour and watch the tide come in, cutting off the only road off the island...and then the pastor turns and says "So... speaking in tongues..." and then things got weird.


Church pastors love captive audiences. It's why this evangelism occurred at a school instead of trying to convince passersby on a street corner.

Like the Scots care. Pfffttt.

They'll tell these self-righteous morons to go fark themselves and proceed to get smashed at the local while watching some obscure sport where large men pound each other into the ground.

Evangelical Christians are okay.

The fact that we haven't rounded them up and placed them all into re-education camps is not.

God Is My Co-Pirate: One of the church members, Evelyn Galvan Graciano, 22, from Mexico, describes Scotland as "a place full of darkness and emptiness that is in a big need of Jesus".

Look, I'll grant you Glasgow, but...


I believe the Scots' standard response to that is "Fok you you fokking fokker!"

700? Are they all in a club?  Are they not counting Catholics as Christians?

Lots of evangelical protestants don't believe Catholics are Christians. My wife's grandfather met a priest at a hospital and thereafter told his daughter/my mother-in-law, "Did you know that some Catholics are Christians too?" True story.

/Catholic
//of the recovering variety.
///slashies

When we moved into our current house, the welcoming committee from the local Baptist church stopped by one day.  When asked where we would attend church, I told them we were Catholic (family is Catholic-ish) and would attend that church.   On my part, this is admittedly to just get them to go away.

Anyway, one of the blondie twins says "Oh, but we're a CHRISTIAN church"...


In response, I hope you told them to get their heretic coonts off your front porch, and to take their women with them.

The cynical part of me would say "paying". But I believe it means "attending church".


I think the real numbers are more like ~10% are regular attendees (monthly or more frequently), and about a third had been to church in the last year (although that starts to get into the mix of believers that attend Christmas mass (or whatever equivalent), vs people that have been to a marriage at a church in the last year and count that as attendance.

Dear Scotland,

We are sorry about that.  Please return our misplaced missionaries to the following address:

Kwan-li-so Labor Camp
Hoeryong, North Hamyong Province, North Korea

c/o Kim Jong Un

Again, sorry for the mix-up.  We will send you a bottle or two of Bourbon and hope this clears things up.

Yours Truly,

America

And they tricked the kids into helping to raise money to build a church. This incident would've been a lot funnier if they tried this shiat in Pakistan, or at least a heavily Catholic part of Belfast.
