Truth Is Stranger #74: I Accept Jesus As My Savior For Gas Coupons

XENIA, Ohio - With Easter approaching, a church in western Ohio plans to help people fill up and also hopes to help fill their spiritual needs.

This Saturday, Pastor Wesley Miller and his Xenia Christian Center will pay 25 cents of the price of every gallon of gas purchased at a local United Dairy Farmers convenience store.

Miller says by offering the deal, his church can promote its Easter services planned for the following weekend while helping those squeezed by the high cost of gasoline.

It's not exactly "the new evangelization," is it?

I've certainly heard dumber ways of trying to get people into church.
