One of my co-workers drove past this doozy of a church today:
A- Some homosexual totem pole thingy?
B- The Pastor’s redneck parsonage?
C- The church appears to only do baptisms, weddings, and funerals…and it’s the first one. God forbid there being two!
D- Creepy on-site cage…perhaps for capturing onlookers and doing unspeakable things to them?
E- Insensitive pro-homosexuality message.
If one googles “Church of the Little Green Man,” one finds out that this is a fourth grade art project gone horribly wrong.
When we give up on objective standards in evaluating art because we do not believe in there being objective truths, then we get both really bad art (lack of standards) and really bad churches (lack of objective truths.) Post-modernism is a disease infecting society so much that my colleague really thought it was a real church. Would anyone make this mistake 50 years ago?
It is a very sad reflection upon how far American churches have fallen. Between the cage, the “God loves fags” sign, and the abandoned children’s bicycles, my colleague (who has worked in the South Bronx) was actually afraid: “I’ve walked into a lot of scary places in the Bronx, but even though the church’s door was opened I wouldn’t dare walk in.”
I suppose all are welcome…but, no one wants to end up in the cage or the trailer and never be heard from again…
Thanks for the press. Was a little late seeing it. High praise from you. God bless your hateful, twisted souls.
Whoa, you are a legend at my office. It is an honor to hear from you.
Looks kool to me, where is this masterpiece??
Sullivan County NY somewhere
wow you so closed minded that you could not get out and ask questions it’s funny as I have asked a lot of questions being i church as a child and when they could not aswer them such as “where did the dinosaurs come from” I would be sent out into the hall . ye of lilttle faith I guess if you cannot get out and ask a question and suss things out instead of wussing things out.
the only guy that wussed out was the “artist” behind the church! I was interviewed in a documentary on the subject and we were supposed to meet and it never happened!
I’ll happily talk about his art whenever he wants!
PS Dinosaurs r cool
I fully embrace evaluating objective standards. Objectively speaking, you obviously have not prayed enough to be blessed with the gift of writing above a third grade level. A simple-minded, uninformed, feeble nitwit such as yourself, make going to the Church of the Little Green Man and having the honor to view Mike Osterhout’s artwork better than receiving a heavenly gift from above. Or below.
Is that convertible full of concrete still there?
“Would anyone make this mistake 50 years ago?” sure, 1969 – the year of Woodstock. Not all churches are xtian.
Dont be afraid, they eat christions last.
