Nothing like using animal cruelty to teach god's love?

Main Street Christian Church in Indiana. Pastor Stephen Bishop gave a children's sermon (titled "Finding Nemo"), in it he took 200 fish (goldfish, guppies, and others) and dumped the entire tank of fish into the church floor and watched as panicking children attempted to save the dying fish. His point in this? That the kids cared more to save "15 cent fish" than their friends' souls.

From his Facebook page: "Well, yesterday's sermon was a big hit! We had a mass execution of feeder fish that I pulled out of a fish tank and then threw all over the floor. The kids were in shock and then started to pic[sic] them up and put them back into the fish tank. Obviously, most of them died in the effort...the point however was made that they cared more about .15 cent feeder fish then[sic] they do about their friends dying w/o Christ."

Link to the church's Facebook page.

Screenshot of the pastor's FB post about it.

The church has curiously empty forums, and a website.

What horrible people, and the poor kids who had to go through that.
