Blog break: Pastors in the hook up business

I hope this is our last post for today :-P, but I didn’t think it would be fair to let this pass.

First we have a pastor offering marriage advice on twitter.

The same pastor calling for a singles meet up

you shouldn’t be single any longer, it costs only Ksh. 200

And lastly the same pastor pleading guilty for keeping a big number of people single.

Itโ€™s the churchโ€™s fault Iโ€™m still single! And I have evidence to prove it!

    You are quite active today! Which is, of course, great joy to me.

    Year, the religious zealots need more sheeple to herd, don’t they? So their followers has breed, it’s really sounds as animal husbandry. With the followers as livestock…

    Ladies, bring chocolate and a hanky….. WTF is that supposed to mean???


  3. This looks more like a recruitment tactic than anything. There are single’s websites for Christians popping up all over the place, so I guess speed-dating at church couldn’t be far behind.

    My roommate had a few drinks the other night and tried to sign me up for Christian Mingle and JDate. I was horrified and amused at the same time.

      Speed dating in church seems like a novel idea for a church intent on attracting singles.

      I think you should sign up for the fun of it though I don’t think I want to try.

    I hope by now you have gotten these silly kind of posts out of your system. Three in a row now. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    I hate to admit it, but I met my husband at a dance held in a church hall.

      No more silly posts for today.
      I have always considered church a social place and one of the reasons I stopped going even before I lost faith was because my friends had moved from where we used to meet.

    I went to Mars Hill in Seattle, with Mark Driscoll as pastor, so I’m pretty familiar with this kind of tactic. Pastors all over the world know: SEX = MONEY. Also, women need chocolate to appease their raging hormones and hankies to sop up the constant flow of tears.
    Very interesting finds – thank you!

      People never stop to amaze. Why anyone has to pay to be helped to date is beyond me though.

      There was a pastor from Nigeria who came to Nairobi some time last year to pray for singles to get partners and the attendance was so high, he came back a second time due to public demand. Once you buy one lie, it doesn’t require hard work to sell others!

    I have no clue as to who Pastor W is, but his outlook, for a minister, is certainly refreshing!

    Of course, there’s a price. My question is, if these unions are preordained by a divine authority, why have a middleman? Great job! ๐Ÿ™‚
