Can you go clubbing in that church with the skate park in it? Honest question because that will attract kids too.

I was watching one of those shows like Access Hollywood or Extra and they did a whole segment on one of those mega churches. If your church has become so popular that even celebrity gossip TV shows are praising it, then you should seriously reevaluate your church. Churches aren't supposed to conform to pop culture.

Actually, I have many many friends who are fervent believers and they don't bother me one iota. I've been asked numerous times what church I go to, and when I say no I usually get one of two responses. 1) a look of extreme sadness followed by headshaking and usually the obligatory 'Well, I'll pray for you'. 2)Look of incredulous disbelief and then I get told 'Well, you know you're going to go to hell if you don't accept the saviors free gift of salvation.' Wonder why I don't attend church? But I digress, this thread isn't about that but about mega churches. I stand by my opinion that mega churches are a waste of space and that the money and land could be better utilized to do what Jesus actually taught.
