Now we are going to have "JESUSGATE"
Why is that money not being spent on the SICK, POOR, and DISADVANTAGED!!

Makes one PUKE!
yep kid - it's a marketing blitz. which btw will probably be funded by the proceeds of a week's tithing ($1.5million). And as Robert said it would be far better spent in a more humane way.
The $1.5 million ''Jesus. All About Life'' campaign will kick off with a viral internet component next month...

Methinks they don't quite get the gist of what a viral campaign is: it ain't a viral campaign if you tell us about it before hand.

Although privately funded, it has the support of a range of denominations, including the Catholic Church, NSW Christian Brethren and Hillsong.

Mr Willis said the campaign would not shy away from the reality that some people had had negative experiences with Christian churches, but Jesus - who had stood up to religious leaders and those using the church for financial gain - ''stands up to scrutiny''.


Ironimeter can not measure such high levels of Irony. Hypocrometer has broken down.
What a pointless waste of money...

*facepalm*
Come on Ford ute, do us a favour, explode!

As mentioned above, our most forceful argument against the worth of this is to question what good this does society. The federal government has essentially bankrolled this with their tax exemptions and support of the church. For example, when the government gives billions of dollars to the exclusive brethren, money is freed up for shit like this. If this is what they do with support, we should stop supporting them.

All the crap about people being angry with the church. I'm not an atheist cause I'm angry with the church, I'm an atheist cause they have bronze age, socially retarding beliefs that I want no part of.
