A mouth full...

Real life religious groups and organizations.

Not mocking, just observing...

Our Pentecostal friends:

"Fire baptized holiness church of the Americas
"

"The house of God, which is the church of the Living God, the Pillar & the Ground of the Truth, inc."

"International church of the Foursquare gospel..." Just kidding Steve... Kind of...

"Apostolic Overcoming Holy Church of God
"

"Praise All Day Church of the Redeemer Christ Our Everlasting King"

Their name says it all, kind of...

"True Jesus Church"

"The Christadelphians"

"The Exclusive Brethren"

Their site says "The Exclusive Brethren practice separation from evil, recognising this as God's principle of unity. They shun the conduits of evil communications: television, the radio, and the Internet. Their charter is 2 Timothy 2:19 "The Lord knows those that are his; and, Let every one who names the name of the Lord withdraw from iniquity."

And this is awesome! From a website dedicated to the Amish:

"Why is this site in black and white?

The Amish are known as the "Plain People" because they shun bright colors. Since this web page is about the "Plain People", it is also plain. You will find no javascript, brightly colored icons or anything else that would give these pages a gaudy appearance"

Then there are the "maybe we need a committee to think up something new" group:

Boring United Methodist Church, Boring, MD

Black Jack Missionary Baptist Church in Gore Springs, MS

And we end with Cowboy churches

Cowboy Church On Fire; Iraan, TX

I swear, in Kansas City, KS there is a church by the name of...drumroll...

Christ's Church of the Jesus Hour!

So many things can be said, but since you are just observing, I will let your imaginations observe.

Yes that shunning of conduits of evil once included cellphones and faxes too!.

That is until they decided in business today not enough money could be reaped from evil heathens, unless they added these conduits of evil to the saintly objects to be praised and revered list.

Not mocking, just observing .

That is funny how we can start to do gymnastics to cover loop holes in our thinking and reasoning...
