    Given the church setting that's probably better than the traditional solution of pants that are seriously too small and too tight.

    Welcome back.

    The Babylon Bee is a satire site. Targets are generally things that happen in American churches. Contemporary music and praise bands are low hanging fruit since even the folks that like them are aware of the tension between performance and worship. I mean when someone in the congregation says "Jesus" during the guitar solo does it mean they have been transported or that the guitarist should have stopped five minutes ago?
