Jesus Roots for the Nats

Dmitri Young bats .340 for your sins.

On August 5th, religion comes to RFK Stadium in the form of something called Faith Night put together by these guys.

“When the Nationals take on the St. Louis Cardinals on Aug. 5, fans who pay an extra $10 will be able to stay after the game and visit booths from Christian colleges and shops, meet characters from the “Veggie Tales” Christian video series and hear a concert by the band Mercy Me.”

Sounds like a Goddamn blast! Do I get a discount if I wear my Creed Human Clay tour t-shirt? (off topic – I was looking at Creed’s wikipedia entry a few minutes ago and it turns out their original band name was Naked Toddler. Sort of creepy, no?)

I find your excess of faith disturbing.

When I first read about this, my jaw sort of dropped and I thought this was the worst thing I’d ever heard of. But I thought about it some more, and it’s actually not all that weird. What the group says makes sense:

“We would not be in 46 markets if we were about the business of offending people. This is no different from Realtors Night or 4-H Night, where they’re attracting a particular demographic. We go to great lengths to avoid being confrontational.”

Ok. I can dig that. Baseball’s a business, I understand that. Still though, last time these guys distributed a bunch of material comparing homosexuality to alcoholism. That’s a little too Ty Cobb for me…

Would I take my kids to the ballpark that day? Absolutely. Would I stay for the Mercy Me show? Probably not. But it all depends on how much my kids like Veggie Tales – which is hopefully very little.

All in all, it’s not wrong. It’s just, I dunno, icky…

    Holy shit is that picture offensive!…a similar event is being held in Green Bay called “Leap of Faith Lambeau”

    Little do those Bible beaters know that the only God they’re gonna find at Lambeau is still riding his lawn tractor down in Kiln, MS.

    Yeah – I really gotta side with Happs here on that picture… which makes it even more interesting to me that you think CHIEF WAHOO is ridiculous and needs to go.


    Hi Kettle, it’s Pot… You’re Black!

    Deicide is playing a pentinent version of “Biblebasher” that night to close the festivities.

    Top 3 Photoshopped images ever.

  4. Max Brallier says:

    Haha Spencer I actually realized that right after I posted on the Chief Wahoo thing – I’m just a complicated man I guess.

    I feel like I need confession. If you had emailed me and said “Hey Brad, I’m thinking of photoshopping Dmitri Young’s head onto a crucifix…” I would have laughed and waited for the fallout.

    It’s brilliant.

    Deicide rules.

  6. Not funny says:

    What the hell?

    This is offensive and I don’t find it funny at all!

  7. Al D says:

    Dmitri Young died for your sins!! You should be happy.

    This Sunday he will rise again.
