Today’s sermon: Bow-chicka-bow.

The people that run the Swingers Palace in Westmoreland County granted a tour to WPXI of their “church” to prove it ain’t a sex club.

Here’s the proof that this is a church we’re dealing with, and NOT a sex club:

1.  I guess the TV is for when the pastor doesn’t feel like preaching.  Then he can just pop in Deep Throat.

2.  Candles!

That’s very churchy!

3.  For when Pastor John’s sermons are putting you to sleep:

That’s putting the ACK! in tacky.

4.  Wow.

I wish my church had a bar.

Reverend John apparently thinks we all have paste for brains.

Now, Reverend John didn’t want an on camera interview, so all you’ll see are his shoes.  But this is The Burgh Blog.  Where we get to the bottom of shit.  So let me remind you of what he looks like:

You are so welcome.

Also, I hope Alan Jennings hosed himself off with Clorox after he left that nasty joint.

    Unburned candles. Empty shelves. 4 thermostats.

    I see nothing suspicious here.

    That’s palace.

    as much as I like the current BB “Pittsburgh. Only Cooler.” slogan up above, I think that “Where we get to the bottom of shit” is way more awesome.

    the words “shit of the bottom” come to mind

    I have not seen this on TV so forgive me if am axing the obvious, but does this church thing have to do with tax evasion or is it that people jsut do not like it being associated with a church

    Not to mention the mirror on the bottom of the bar that lets you see if you’ve spilled any holy water…

    I wonder if that’s what he wears when he officates weddings.

  13. Mrs. Pitsberger
    October 16, 2008 3:28 pm

    That was supposed to say “officiates.” I don’t know what “officates” means, nor do I want to.

    The couch in photo 1 looks like my couch that pretty much everyone who has ever visited my house has had sex on. It has to be a church.

    Remember kids… tax evasion is bad, but bad decorating is a sin!

    Personally, huge fan of the bar light on the, um, bar -er, I mean altar- in picture 2, strategically turned so that you can’t read the word “BAR” written on its globe. Also, if anyone is interested, I’ll be at Mass tonight at my church Smokin’ Joes, watching ESPN Thursday Night College Football, eating sacramental bread, which are known in our congregation as “hot wings.”

    I hope this guy comes out swinging (no pun intended!) all like “Yes, this is the church of sex, we take getting freaky as a sacrament, now here is our bible, now get off of our land!” With any luck, this could supplant the Flying Spaghetti Monster as the protest theology of choice.

    That couch looks like it’s been reupholstered in semen. The blue one, I mean (see, it’s a blue couch for boys and a pink couch for whores).

    This makes just as much sense to me as giving tax deductions to so called “main stream religions” with all their hocus pocus.

    It’s all just smoke, mirrors and incense, whether at the Catholic church or the Baptist church, or the bar room basement of this church.

    Since to decide which divinity degree(magic and hocus pocus) to accept as tax deductable would be discriminatory, perhaps it’s time to make the churches pay their fair share of taxes.

    Just to clear things up for you ppl the beds are in what use to be theirs and their kids bedrooms before they moved out.A lot of the stuff was left behind.Then you have to remember it was a club when Walkmyer owned it.So yeah its going to have that kind of look to it.Then you have to remember they are not a Cath/Christ church so remove what you think a church should look like.I know if i went to church i would rather sit on a couch then a wooden bench any day.And the church i do goto has a TV.Does that mean im not going to church now?

    It is amazing to me that people still think there is only 1 kind of religion in the world.

    And why is it you notice the bar light on the right but miss the angel statue on the left?

  32. Summer
    October 18, 2008 3:27 pm

    Oh, an angel statue definitely makes it a church.

    Fat unattractive people should not be photographed that close to being naked.
