eBay an atheist to church

James Watson at Think Christian has a link to this item on eBay.

Proving once again, you can buy and sell anything on eBay, an atheist is offering to go to church—for a price.
For every $10 you bid, I will go to the Church for 1 day. For $50, you would have me going to mass every day for a week.

My promise: I will go willingly and with an open mind. I will not say/do anything inappropriate. I will respectfully participate in service, speak to priests, volunteer with the church if possible, do my best to learn about the religious beliefs of the church-goers, and make conversation with anyone who is willing to talk. (Though I do reserve the rights to ask the person questions about the faith.)

I will record my visits through a journal, pictures, or whatever other method of proof you’d like—I will uphold my promise.


There are some interesting comments in the comment section on Think Christian.
You can’t make this stuff up!

Only God knows our heart - thank God!!!

This seems to have in common with prostitution n'est pas? Being passively used and paid for and pretending to enjoy the whole experience...although keeping a journal in the process ... definitely would be a new twist.

I've heard of selling salvation, but this is a first I heard of it for buying it.

It is only appropriated never sold!
