A Call to Christian Hedonism!

"Jesus Saves," "Stop and Pray," "Prayer Zone," and "What?!"
 These cute little traffic pylons have (debatably) inspirational religious sayings on them. Here's the one that caught my atomically-enhanced attention.

"Yield to Sin"?
 I suppose they mean something like, "Let it go past. Don't take part in it." However, there's an old song from my childhood that I can't get out of my mind: "Yield Not To Temptation." (MIDI warning!)

Inspirational FAIL! for sure.

And my captcha is "spirit". What's with the oddly appropriate real word?

Ah, the frequent idiocy of Christian retail. How nostalgic. I don't miss it at all.

One time, back when I still worked for a local Christian bookstore chain, our HR department came up with a catchy acronym ("L.I.G.H.T.") for their new customer service training program. It's so catchy that I only remember one letter out of the acronym: G, for Greet-- and the Biblical reference to support this letter was, "They love to be greeted in the marketplace." The context is oddly appropriate, although not in the sense they had intended.
