Landover Baptist Church : Unsaved NOT welcome

It took me a good while to figure out that this was a spoof site. Anyway, Landover Baptist, has some cracking stuff but be warned, it's not for the easily offended Christians. This site takes a big swipe at American Evangelical Christians, and the whole "Jesus Junk" culture. If you can see through the satire, it raises some important issues; the amount of money that is being generated by the christian merchandise industry; the way that some Americans see America as being especially blessed by God (therefore justifying foreign policy...); the conditions some churchs have on membership, etc . To be honest, it made me laugh loads too, and that's one of the reasons why I'm posting about it.

I'm not sure who wrote it - it's very difficult to find any information about the authors. I'm not even sure whether the authors are Christians, but they seem to highlight areas for concern - slightly irreverantly.

It's really well put together and updated regularily but I don't think I'll be buying a WWJD thong though, not yet anyway.


  • If you check out the Wikipedia for Landover Baptist Church it gives you a little information. After reading your blog I was in that stupid site for a couple of hours. Lots of funny stuff and yet some disturbing to say the least. I think it's a bummer for the weaker believers that have no idea it's fake, in the hate mail section they get pretty nasty...

  • I didn't think about Wikipedia. Some people just fly off the handle so easily - someone tried to redirect people from my blog to some weird bible bashing site (
    Some people miss the point so easily.
    Thanks for dropping by
