It could have been named St. Donatian, or St. Cucufas.
I wonder why we don't see more churches with those names. ;-)

UM...Isn't Saint Flippin the patron saint of Dolphins?

Athanasius contra mundum said...

That must be the Flippin sweet church that Napoleon Dynamite goes to

Though there can be irony the other way also.

Here in Florida at St. Augustine (the oldest city in the U.S. and site of the first Mass) you get to see churches with signs like "St. Augustine Baptist Church" and "St. Augustine Seven Day Adventists."

I didn't check out the source, but isn't that in Flippin, AR?

As someone who used to minister with the Wiener Christian Church, (pronounced "weener," just like the hot dog. Yup, we were the "Wiener Christians"!) I can sympathize.

Just waiting for you start a new blog: Crummy Church Names

Oh--St Flippin is the patron saint of pancake turners and fast food employees.
