Went to church, didn't burn... surprised...

by BecomingLuke on November 4, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

**My dad and I have this joke whenever my step mom brings up us going to church as a family my dad usually makes the comment "sorry, don't feel like being struck by lightening today" or "sorry, don't think they'd appreciate the burn trail that'd leave in their church"
Well this morning I was half dragged to church with one of my friends because she is determined to show me that not all churches are the same. And since I've been to so many horrible churches in the past I was pretty much terrified... only to find out the church was called "Unity" and they host weekly lgbt meetings.
Coulda mentioned that before you scared the hell out of me!
