holy hybrid salvation

Flabbergasping.

Greater Grace, the largest church in Detroit, invited officials from the United Automobile Workers union to speak before Bishop Ellis gave his sermon, titled “A Hybrid Hope.”

The S.U.V.’s on the stage, a Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Escape and Chrysler Aspen on loan from local dealerships, were all gas-electric hybrids, and Bishop Ellis urged worshipers to combat the region’s woes by mixing hope with faith in God.

Praise be to Oliver and the NYT.

Hey, my old Dodge Omni always inspired a religious frenzy whenever anyone rode in it.

i heard one commentator say if you didn't really know the church or what was going on....it looks like they're worshipping consumerism.

it's some crazy shit, whatever it is....

worshiping consumerism. hmmm..like jesus selling ginzu knives.

but wait! if you call now you will also receive a laminated "get out of Purgatory FREE" card. (good only while supplies last; one coupon per sinner; not valid with cardinal sins; cannot be doubled.)
