Jennifer - welcome and I am glad you asked! That object isn't so much a filter as a device to keep the urine from splashing around, gutters around houses have them sometimes as well. Hope that helps.

Jennifer

I know this post is old now, but I just saw it, and I gotta ask; why do men need to filter their urine???? I'm truly baffled.

Looks like a colander, but I wouldn't drain my veggies in it.

Gross.

God Bless.

i've often wondered about similar 'graffiti' advertising in bars and restaurants where there are posters in and around the urinals, i see one that promotes a specific service at one of the larger local churches.. not quite like peeing on the name of the church, but it does seem strange

ben

where's the urinal cake?

Lorna

MiT what is confessed is forgiven. Go in peace bro.

but I'm glad you posted this, or we'd have never heard the inside story! so tx again

caleb

yeah, that is a another religious idea that i could take a piss on

Hey Bryan:
That particular servant evangelism project involves cleaning an establishment's bathroom for free, with no strings attached. They hope by going in and cleaning toilets, they might share a bit of God's love with people.

You know I like that, and this information puts a whole new spin on the image, and I am really interested in this concept. A local Emergent congregation went to an art Fair and gave out water, no strings, just love. This is very intersting and I would like to know more.

I also want to repent of a bad attitude about what I saw, without checking it out.

Indulgentiam, † absolutionem, et remissionem peccatorum nostrorum tribuat nobis omnipotens et misericors Dominus
The Almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, † absolution, and remission of our sins

Constantine

Given the Church, I'm not surprised at all.

Robb

Now that is pure comedy!

Lorna

with hey Jules on this... at last an advantage to peeing sitting down. Wonder how they advertise over in the ladies? ROFL

I never expected this over here in monastic mumblings - and it's great!

PS our local church is down town and a few of the down and outs pop in to use the facilities - and drink an occasional cup of coffee. I think it's great :)

"pisses" me off. kidding.

ironically, i was just talking about this particular advertisement with a friend a few days ago. my assessment: the folks who see that ad and choose to visit the church are not going to already be listening to "newsboys" or "michelle tumes." i really have little to no problem with it.

stephen

No strings attached except they get to leave behind their little personalized urine filter, huh?

Bryan

I've actually been to that church on several occasions a few years ago. Heck, I even participated on a few of their servant evangelism projects. My mindset about evangelism has changed quite a lot since then but in all fairness, that's a church that has a heart for people. That particular servant evangelism project involves cleaning an establishment's bathroom for free, with no strings attached. They hope by going in and cleaning toilets, they might share a bit of God's love with people. Anyway, just thought I'd throw out some background. Peace.

Celestine

*Sigh* Of all places to advertise they HAVE to pick the toilet!

Almost seems like "Peeing on Jesus". I approach that with the same vein where at my wedding reception, I didn't want our names embossed on napkins. "I don't want people wiping their nasty mouths on our names!" Nevermind that I'm a cheapskate, to some who have had bad experiences at church, it could be perceived as sweet revenge. Symbolism can be interpreted many ways...

HeyJules

Okay, so I finally found ONE advantage to being a girl and peeing sitting down.

Joe

I like the ones with the targets. So you can practice peeing straight. They should make it where if you hit a bullseye you can win a prize.

J-Tron

Makes about as much sense as the ones that say "Say No to Drugs" on them. I've often wondered what the message is that they expect to send with those. What am I supposed to take away from the experience of peeing on the words "Say No to Drugs"?
