Church Picnic Interrupted by Goose Hunters

September 29, 2010

We like church picnics here at American Jesus.  A little while back, we saw church picnics getting sexy.  Now we’re seeing them get bloody.  From the article:

The rector of a Hingham church says parishioners trying to hold a post-Mass picnic at the town’s beach were interrupted by a Canadian goose being shot in front of them.

The Rev. Timothy Schenk of the St. John the Evangelist Episcopal church said that the church was holding its “preach at the beach” Mass last week when parishioners saw two hunters open fire on a small flock of geese.

He said one goose was shot and fell into the water, but did not die immediately.

Schenk said parents and children at the picnic were upset about the shooting. He said the Mass was designed for children and to remind them that God isn’t just found at the pulpit and in the pews.”

In related news, the church’s family counseling ministry has probably seen a sudden increase in clients as a result.
