When did King James become a saint?!?

Hey! That's my church! I was actually on the verge of taking that picture myself this weekend, but didn't get around to it.

Meredith--oops. Thanks, I corrected it. I blame the actifed and the lack of sleep!

Scarlett--I saw that sign was in DC--hope you manage to survive the day!

Here in SoCal I passed a pickup truck on the freeway once that had a huge homemade sign on the side saying "NO HOPE IN THE POPE" and something else about Jesus being the only way. It didn't convert me but I'm glad they cared. :)

Saw another sign at a monastery warning against flushing certain things down the toilet; it began "My bowl runneth over if..."

Rachel--you need to be grabbing these things on your cell phone camera--and sending them to me!

I am so sorry I didn't have a camera with me that day!

I prefer the Trent version better:

"If anyone says that they may park here in regards to time or permission and willingly does park one's car here, LET THEM AND THEIR CAR BE ANATHEMA."

But the King James is more to the point.

I've seen "Thou Shalt Not Park Here" signs at a few churches. My favorite No Parking sign right now is at my vets':
"Parking for ___patients only. All others will be towed or neutered."

Oh dear, I am reminded of a Wiccan version: Any Car Parked Here Will Be Toad.
