I’ve Finally Figured Out Why 76% of Americans Skipped Church Today

They’re afraid to go!  They actually think they live in Nigeria and they don’t want to run the risk of being victims of a suicide bombing.  Ah, now it all makes sense- and here I just thought that they lacked any depth of commitment to communal worship.

A suicide bomber drove a jeep full of explosives into a Catholic church during morning mass in northern Nigeria on Sunday, killing at least eight people, wounding more than 100 and triggering reprisal attacks that killed at least two more.

There was no claim of responsibility but Islamist sect Boko Haram has bombed several churches in the past in its fight to create an Islamic state in Nigeria where the 160 million population is evenly split between Christians and Muslims.

The bomber drove the car into the wall of the packed St Rita’s church in the Malali area of Kaduna, a volatile ethnically and religiously mixed city, witnesses said.

Oh Americans… so pampered and consequently so uncommitted.  To anything (except sports and money).

  1. Excellent point! However when I first read “They actually think they live in Nigeria” I thought this post would be about Christians receiving an fund-raising email from Rev Ahmed Imanutjob telling them that he wants to spread the blessings of his ministry and needs your credit card and social security number so he can deposit 2 million dollar in your account. I thought that this post was about “money scams” perpetrated by so called Reverends and that’s why they were afraid to go to Church today, but then again, MONEY SCAMS by so called “reverends” run rampant every Sunday throughout churches in America and people keep going back for more…
    I don’t want to make light of the events in Nigeria, but your conclusion “Oh Americans… so pampered and consequently so uncommitted. To anything (except sports and money).” scores high and is “right on the money” – No pun intended.
