In recent years, most of the Church’s efforts to reach out to the male markets in America have proven only marginally effective.
Much like the males themselves.
Today, most of the male population does not attend church, and those who do often find themselves simply going through the motions.
Much like their wives.
GodMen is an organization that takes a different, more aggressive approach motivating average guys.
In other words, finally! A church that caters to the sports talk radio moron demographic!
"America’s comedian," Brad Stine, who will host the event
Apparently America doesn't require its comedian to be funny, because man, Brad Stine? His jokes don't even have the strength to lay there and die. They're shipped in already dead, like sardines from Thailand.
describes it thus: “GodMen aims to connect men with their spiritual masculinity — making them dangerous in a righteous way.
As innumerable ads and books targeted at salesmen, sports-watching couch potatoes and dudes who think it makes them the equivalent of the warriors of Sparta that they can build a drywall prove, there's always money to be made in this country by telling fat, pasty, soft, weak, pussy-ass white-collar American men that they're "warriors". If these guys really WERE dangerous, they'd be terrifying -- Christian jihadists working themselves into a war fever with the help of God. But they're about as dangerous as a wet sock.
The guys who attend this conference will find themselves stirred and inspired, but they won’t be required to cry or hold another man’s hand. We promise.
Don't worry, you won't have to do anything faggy!
Coughlin will provide a corrective portrait of Christian manhood.
This is, conversely, the gayest sentence ever written.
Philosopher and master illusionist Ken Sands of Mars Hill will illustrate how easily believers can be seduced from the simplicity of the gospel.
When you read "philosopher and master illusionist", didn't you immediately think of G.O.B. Bluth?
“Our belief in the Christian God is not a blind faith relegated to a fairy tale,” Ken says. “In fact, it's irrational to deny God, because the nature of rationality confirms Him."
HA HA HA HA HA
Other speakers include Nate Larkin, author of the forthcoming “Samson and the Pirate Monks,”
Failed children's author trying to cash in on the megachurch demographic...
and cultural analyst Dave Bunker
Recipient of Scaife money...
They will describe their experience with the Samson Society, a fellowship of Christian men devoted to collaborative living.
A gaggle of barely repressed homos terrified of their own libidos.
“In the final analysis,” Larkin says, “Christianity is a team sport, not an individual event.” Bunker agrees. “God’s design and plan is that every believer should be a functioning part of the Body of Christ. There is no place in the church for either spectators or superstars.”
Hey, a sports analogy! GUYS LOVE THOSE.
Mike Smith, whose management company is organizing the event
Mike Smith, a shameless, hustling opportunist who would be organizing the "SatanMen" event if it would pay more...
says that the aim of GodMen is to help men recapture the dignity of masculinity from cultural forces that have diminished it for decades.
SHUT UP BITCH
Smith emphasizes that the goal of GodMen is not to create one more "nice" and “safe” Christian man, a passive male whose only response to adversity is to fold his hands in prayer.
Because Jesus hates it when you pray.
Rather, the purpose of the movement is to equip an army of men who embody the spirit of the faithful and rugged Jesus.
Who was just kidding with that "love your neighbor" and "turn the other cheek" stuff.
Smith has also drawn from his musical background and has The "Right Brothers"
Whose latest album, No Apologies, contains a song called "I'm in Love with Ann Coulter" and whose commitment to rebellious, dangerous, cutting-edge defiant rockin' can be found on the six hundred exhortations on their website not to file-share their awesome tunes.
“Words cannot adequately describe this event,” says Brad Stine.
Probably the truest statement in the press release.
This event is for men who are ready to be fearless and dangerous!
Pssssh, whatever, Godmen. Tell it to ya Wal-Mart checkout clerk. You wanna be fearless and dangerous? Volunteer for minesweeping duty in Afghanistan, or start a Christian ministry in Pakistan. You ain't fearless and dangerous 'cause you paid $200 to hang out in a convention center in downtown Nashville all day. Call me when you blow up a skyscraper or kill some Saracens or something, and you know what? I'll still laugh at you.
