Dang! What kind of churches have you visited? Getting laid by one of the parishioners was never offered to me. Now i feel cheated.

Fred,

This truly belongs on Provocateurs and Peacemakers group to discuss how we perceive reality and "divine" inspiration of this particular instance of possible hypothesis of "Poe's Law?"

Jesus did tell (allegedly) that with enough faith, nothing would be beyond you. You could move mountains. A measly 5 min without manual control of a car is in my book just as spectacular as moving mountains. Maybe he was being metaphorical when he said it. But then, there is Luke 4:12, don't think it refers to metaphors? Or it just refers to whatever the high priest of your denomination means to get you to tithe 10% and maybe just get laid with one of the church goers?

Anna,

The date March 31st is the day before April 1st. Just saying Poe's law has some glitches - like calendar dates close to each other.

Exactly. There is nothing on the page to suggest whether the person who started it has an odd sense of humor, or is just crazy. The problem is, there may be some people out there who take it seriously, and actually do it. Geez...people get in pits with rattlesnakes thinking Jesus will protect them; there are people that suggestible out there.

It might be advisable to make reservations now for March 31 at hotels on islands where cars are not allowed.  Mackinac Island comes to mind, but it will still be too cold on March 31.  Maybe Daufuskie island in South Carolina.  It has a golf course, but it also has golf carts, so Daufuskie might not work.   On the other hand, there is something intriguing about the prospect of heathens being run over by Christians in golf carts.

On March 31, 2013, Christians all over the world will take to the streets in their automobiles. Relying only on the divine protection of Jesus Christ, they will prove that the Savior of Man will not abandon them when they remove their hands from the steering wheels of their cars for a total of 5 minutes. They will not be at a red light, or a stop sign, they will be on the highways. This is TRUE FAITH. Jesus Christ does not abandon his children, and with the current state of the world, it's time to show Jesus that we have not abandoned him. Do not come to this page telling us that we are crazy and that we are going to die. Jesus is our Shepherd, and he will tend to his flock. Please join us and show that you are NOT AFRAID to place your life in the hands of Jesus Christ.
