Sleazy junk mail

We got some junk mail from "St Matthew's Church" this week.

This is prosperity-gospel-take-your-money stuff at its wildest. It includes a "Prayer Rug" and a "Secret Prophecy." And promises that sending them a "seed" of money will result in you getting bazillions of dollars in the mail. Talk about a black eye for Christianity. Yuck.

Lots of other bloggers have talked about them. The worst part is that they seem to target their mailings to the poorest counties in America. I live in one.

I hope people around here are ignoring this stuff, or at most getting a laugh out of it.
