The Sacred Sandwhich... When You Suddenly Realize that they're Laughing at You

I got an anonymous tip that I would enjoy this site, The Sacred Sandwhich . I visited the site and thought it was a hoot. Sometimes I think you just have to laugh at yourself from time to time and the Christian Community does a great job of setting themselves up for a good laugh. The Sacred Sandwhich is an equal opportunity offender and if you're a stiff conservative who thinks that humor is watching Pat Robertson's 700 Club, then this site is for you (even if you're not you may enjoy it anyhow).

Everyone is in scope and nothing is sacred but the Word of God. Their disclaimer reads as such:

"As one might surmise, the League of Tyndale and The Sacred Sandwich do not officially exist, except in the peculiar mind of its creator, Chris Carmichael. This publication (and the organization behind it) is nothing more than lighthearted parody of current Christian issues, produced to invoke and honor the spirit of bygone days when Christian organizations such as this were committed to grounding themselves fully in the standard of God's word, and were not ashamed to stand firm for the sake of the true Gospel.

Do not be misled, however, in thinking that the satirical framework of this project implies a lack of real biblical truth. The editorial content of our site is not a joke. All the articles, as well as many of the parodies, are dead serious in their purpose of proclaiming sola Scriptura to the postmodern church in a biblical and factual way. Despite the tongue-in-cheek style, The Sacred Sandwich's main objective is to herald the sufficiency of Scripture as one of the surest means in which the visible Church might humble herself to God's will and enjoy true spiritual revival.
Indeed, our satire might have an edge, but it is that edge which often cuts more quickly to the marrow of the truth.

We invite you, therefore, to join us in this creative experiment by taking our noble cause seriously in the midst of our whimsy. Return with us to the days of the small town church and their simple faith in Jesus Christ, where the world has not yet encroached upon their thinking and theology. Consider the possibility that the League of Tyndale truly exists, at least in our hearts, and that The Sacred Sandwich is their humble effort to bring forth His truth for the glory of God alone.

Won't you please join us in this fight?"
