Let’s be real: Not many people go to church just for laughs. Faith? Yes. Community? Yes. Tongue-in-cheek humor and a pastor-turned-comedian? Usually not.
These hilarious photographs of real signs outside of churches prove that devotion and humor can go hand in hand. And sometimes the most earnest believers are the ones who can poke fun at themselves.
Aww… Did you know 39 states have laws against texting while driving?

According to the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, more that a quarter of adults in the United States have left the religion of their upbringing. And one in four adults between the ages of 18 and 29 say they are affiliated to any religion at all. That makes “Unaffiliated” the second largest religious group in the country, after Christian.
Religious hardliners might call this a crisis of faith – but has human nature really changed? And even if it has, should religious institutions perhaps change with it? These witty, light-hearted church signs make faith seem accessible, even fun! And that’s something human nature will never grow out of.
