Good Dogma: The Top 10 Pet-Friendly Clever Church Signs

Unconditional, non-judgmental love is the best kind of love some say, and that's exactly the kind of love expressed by our pets. Can you live up to their expectations? Maybe not. Should you at least make an effort to try? Absolutely! (pet-friendly church sign images via Doug Grinburgs above and au_tiger01 at top)

Good Dogma: The Top 10 Pet-Friendly Clever Church Signs

Some folks say prayers before going to bed, others count sheep jumping over a fence to help relax their minds. Then there are those who pray that each and every sheep makes it over the fence safely... we're guessing those folks get the most restful sleep of all.

One day you're saying “well done, Spot”, and the next it's “Spot, well done.” And no, those really aren't the campfire hotdogs we were hungry for. (pet-friendly church sign image via Eric Meyer)

Well, that's one way to fill the pews. Hopefully prayerful pet-owners remember to feed their cats before attending or the church-mice are liable to experience Judgment Day up close and personal-like. (pet-friendly church sign image via Clare Haney)          
               

 

5) Cover Your Mass

This sign – not the big one, the much smaller sign down at dog's-eye-level – may be an exception to the rule admonishing the use of the Lord's name in vain. Then again, much more damnable words might be uttered should someone step in something smelling most un-holy. (pet-friendly church sign image via Bill Jankowski)                        
         

 

6) Leap of Faith

We're not saying this church is overly eager for new parishioners but don't be surprised if the reverend, organist and most of the choir practically slobber all over you once you get through the front door... and no, that's NOT holy water. (pet-friendly church sign image via NautArch    

 

7) Eternal Dammed Nation

This church may appear to be gently chiding the purported pagan “link” between spring holidays and folk fertility symbols but they can't be that anti-animal if they're the “First United Methodist of Beaverton”. (pet-friendly church sign image via Joseph Roman       

 

8) Lighten Up, Francis

Good Dogma: The Top 10 Pet-Friendly Clever Church Signs

Perhaps Francis has lightened up a little too much... and it's light 'cuz the sun don't shine there. In any case, it matters not whether there are Mooning Popes or Mooing Popes, the important thing is to... steer clear.

9) Burned at the Steak

Good Dogma: The Top 10 Pet-Friendly Clever Church Signs

So-called “sacred cows” aren't beatific bovines from Bombay, they're societal and institutional norms and mores deemed to be immune from questioning or criticism. Hmm, maybe the church above really was referring to the aforementioned Calcutta cattle. (pet-friendly church sign image via trappedinabay)        

 

10) Vegan, Not Pagan

Good Dogma: The Top 10 Pet-Friendly Clever Church Signs

Why should the animal kingdom get all the glory? One wonders whether pets are welcome at the seriously mysterious “Church of Fruits”, or if the maxim “be fruitful and multiply” will only result in further division. (pet-friendly church sign image via genebrooks)
