Sound Advice on Church Signs

I am currently reading Roadshow, Landscape with Drums by Neil Peart. He tours via motorcycle throughout the book and likes to report on his favorite "inspirational" sayings he finds on various church signs:

YOU WON'T BE PERSUASIVE
BY BEING ABRASIVE


That is a good reminder for myself as well as anyone out on the Internets.

A tip we can all use, for sure.

Ah, but on the intertubes I'm not sure anybody is trying to BE persuasive.

Or persuaded for that matter.

The Moody Minstrel said...

No one will listen
Unless your teeth glisten.

If you can't win with logic,
Time to wax demagogic.

A blogger in the hand
Is worth three in with Bush.

He who knows tells.
He who doesn't know preaches.

A true demagogue
Is a man with a blog.

Do not read this sign
Under penalty of enlightenment.

Psst...actually interested in hearing some facts ?

(Okay, I'll put the bucket back over my head now.)

Enlightenment is hardly a penalty.

Unless you are a monk who seeks the truth by hitting himself on the head with a board;-)
