Weird Al: 'I go to church'

This summer, Weird Al Yankovic came out with a new album. I've always enjoyed his work - funny, clever, entertaining.

Now, I have very little knowledge of Weird Al's set of personal beliefs but got a small and positive glimpse about his typical Sunday a few days ago in Parade magazine:
Generally, I get up and pour myself a bowl of cereal with some soy milk on it. I quickly check the Internet. I go to church, and then I might pick up a burrito or food for the whole family. Maybe we’ll go to the park, watch a movie on TV, or camp out in the backyard.
"... I go to church, ..."

That small, unpreachy statement says something. It says that it's OK to tell people you go to church. It might lead to great things for someone who hears you.

Now, is Weird Al perfect in everything because he goes to church? Of course not. No one is. But perfection is not required. God loves you just the way you are.

Now, from Al's latest album ...

Yes, it's a simple statement that says volumes. BUT a lot of people go to church. There's a big difference between going to church and being in communion with the Father.

Big difference indeed. But I like the statement because it reminds people that all kinds of people can find and attend a church.
