Reading Time: 2 minutes

Last time, I ran this contest (in reference to the naked mass that took place in the Netherlands):

What comments were overheard during the naked mass?

Here are the Top 10 lines overheard (with submitters):


“Now, would everybody please use the back entrance, that way no accidents will happen.”



“Dude, whatever you do, don’t close your eyes when you receive communion.”

(Scott Flowers)


“I know you guys love communion, but there’s no need to press up so closely against each other in line.”



“Don’t look at another guys penis, don’t look at another guys penis, don’t look at another guys penis… Oh crap, now I’m gay.”

(Bill M.)


“If your neighbors attempt to argue with you, do not mass debate!”



“Is that a bible in your pocket or are you… oh!”

(Scott G.)


“I know it seems extreme, but this was the only way to be sure no one will steal the Eucharist.”



Pastor: “OK everyone, listen up…after our last service we are going to have to have some new rules about what is to be placed in the collection plates.”

(Larry Huffman)


Preacher: “He is risen…”

Child: “…and so are you!”



“You mis-heard me. I said it was a rousing sermon.”


Congratulations to the winners! The top three will be receiving specially-made Friendly Atheist wristbands (in the color of their choice), sent to me by blog reader Shauna and her sister Danni!


If you’d like to win your own wristband, here is the new contest:

You can now smell like a Pope!

The Pope’s Cologne is a classic Old World cologne made from the private formula of Pope Pius IX (1792-1878). We obtained this formula from descendants of the commander of his Papal Guard and lifelong friend, General Charles Charette. We have followed this complex, exclusive formula meticulously, using the same essential oils that his perfumers used 150 years ago. We believe that we have succeeded in capturing the same fragrance that he and those around him enjoyed so long ago.

Which raises the question:

What will be the next faith-based scent we hear of? And what will it smell like…?

(Thanks to Bjorn for the idea!)

Funny and creative answers will have a shot at winning.

Good luck!
