A Horse Trough....The Only Way To Get To Heaven, Y'all!

Seriously, no pool could be found? They couldn't gather around someone's whirlpool tub for two minutes? Really... a horse trough? I've seen it all now.

Well, obviously. It's one of them "cowboy churches".

I bet they bought it specifically for the purpose. :p

If I ever get baptised, I hope it's by the two gay cowboys from Brokeback Mountain.

*sigh*

The many purposes of a horse trough. Some women give birth in them and now you can get saved in them too.

...And She's Buying a Horse Trough to Heaven....

...no, doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

As a country kid I have washed off and swam in a few horse troughs in my time but never have been baptized in one. But then again I have seen baptisms in horse troughs that looked like this one minus the dirty water. http://www.beefmaster-ranch.com/wordpre ... -drinking/ When you live in an arid part of the world one can not afford to fill up a huge pool or even find water. You gotta do what you gotta do.

Eventually they'll figure out you can save the baby while it's being born in one of those.

Oh I feel terrible now. One of our neighbor churches bought a "horse trough" and decorated and uses it for adult baptisms. They did paint it and put a gathered cloth around it and removed the price tag.

Yeah, but they aren't doing it in its bare state with construction going on in the background.

I don't think that's construction, I think that's just their church. There is a cross on the wall behind the platform, and one of the cowboy hat dudes seems to be setting up sound equipment on the stage.

I thought one was meant to remove ones hat in church :?

At least she's not giving birth in it! (and then returning it like mangomama http://www.drunkenhousewife.com/2006/11 ... ndals.html)

I actually shrieked "EWWWWW!" out loud after reading this. Really? Just....REALLY? I really hope someone forwards that to Home Depot and they stop accepting them.

I dunno how I feel about the horse trough thing. I'm all for simple baptisms but... come on.. how about a ceramic clawfoot tub? A pond in a nice garden?

At least it's not a Spongebob inflatable kiddie pool.... although on some level I'd almost prefer that.

This just looks so.. unimportant. Thrown together. "Take the hat off, wipe the cow poop from your boots, and let's get you saved!" Maybe it's a Catholic thing making me think baptism should be granted a degree of solemnity.

I was baptised at 18 in a kiddie pool :dance: Being an Anglican church, it didn't have a built-in baptism pool. At least the water wasn't cold!

Being a seaside parish, we did sometimes have baptisms in the sea.

A flatbed is just that: flat.

I bet it's difficult to make a tarpfull of water stand up on it's own.

I've been to a Baptism where they used one of those. It wasn't an even remotely fundy OR cowboy church. They just didn't have a baptismal in their building and it was the only transportable thing they could get that was deep enough and wasn't a cheesy, bright blue inflatable pool.

Me too. Well, the church was actually somewhat fundie, but it wasn't at all a cowboy church - in fact quite the opposite - very trendy and hip.

You can turn them into a swimming pool too. Before my great-grandfather passed away, he lived in a nursing home in a super small town in South Dakota (think 1000 people in the whole town. Maybe even less than 1000.) The only hotel in town had a giant water trough type thing for their pool.

Hahahaaaa... I can see it now,,,, a new sign at the checkout, right under "All checks require Drivers License numbers" ... "No tub returns accepted if placental proteins have been present in it at any time."

Oops! I forgot to delete the work flatbed. I meant just a pickup truck. That's what I get for trying to do too many things at once. Anyway, this is what I was referring to...a redneck swimming pool:

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
