A poster spotted outside the church of St Thomas, Blackpool, riffs off popular culture in a way not seen since a church sign in Ohio insisted that ‘Jesus is the Potter, not Harry’.
‘Jeremy Kyle is not the only place to find your real father’, it proclaims, in reference to ITV’s ghastly tabloid daily, The Jeremy Kyle Show.
‘Thought this was so funny when I drove past it that I had to drive round the block to get a photo!’ commented an appreciative motorist on Facebook.
The church has followed up with a new sign that reads: ‘Beep if you love Jesus. Text whilst driving if you want to meet him.’
