Havens Corners Church of Christ in Christian Union is located on the Columbus, Ohio east side near Blacklick (yes, it’s “Blacklick”) and Gahanna. The church’s website www.havenscornerschurch.org doesn’t seem¬†to be up and running at the moment and that’s not especially surprising in light of the news this morning.¬† ¬†

It’s one of those signs that wanna -be-comic preachers use to get attention.¬† This one was cleverly thought up and executed by Pastor David Allison. Pastor Dave grew up in the church and received his call to preach after attending Beulah Grove Camp as a 10 yr. old where I’m sure he received lots of attention.¬†¬†

¬†“I kissed a girl and I liked it, then I went to Hell.”

Pastor Dave whined,¬†“We didn’t intend to get into all this, but it’s become a bigger thing.” He was just very concerned about the implications of¬†Katy Perry’s song and what he called a music video so suggestive it borders on pornography.¬†¬†¬† “If anyone’s seen the video as many times as I have – like I mean, I’ve seen it lots – and understands how lewd and suggestive the video is for this song, that is not something young people should go toward,” Allison said.¬† In fact, Pastor Dave watches the video continuously at his own home just to monitor whether others may be watching it so that he can give them adequate warning.¬†

He thought the message on the church sign would be a loving way to remind teenagers that the Bible denounces homosexuality.  Of course, Pastor Dave also wanted to remind homosexual youth that they may want to blow their brains out now before acting on their sexual orientation because if they wait and actually act on their nature Рthey will burn in hell for eternity.    Gee, that is so loving Pastor Dave

The sign was removed Thursday. Pastor Allison said it was not due to outrage. He said he received volumes of support from throughout the state . . . from numerous bigots and idiots. 

Pastor Dave, an avid fan of MTV, said he was surprised at the number of¬†people who called in or e-mailed because they didn’t know to what he was referring. They were unaware of the song, unlike MC Pastor Dan.¬†
