In FLINT TOWNSHIP, Mich., a Michigan pastor has opened a tattoo parlor inside his church.
Rev. Steve Bentley makes the wonderful statement that he's doing everything he can to reach out to people who have never felt comfortable at a traditional house of worship.
Bentley's church, The Bridge, occupies 3,000 square feet inside a Flint Township shopping center. Serenity Tattoo is located not far from his office as well as a galvanized watering trough that he uses for baptisms.
Two tattoo artists work at the county-licensed shop that is open every day except Sunday.
Bentley rejects criticism that a church is the wrong place for a tattoo parlor, calling it a "morally neutral" practice akin to having your ears pierced. He has two tattoos.
The Sundance Wives have earned their way into alternative religion with their numerous non-traditional films with religious themes. Sage Sweetwater is quoted as saying "Old Jesus doesn't sell." Innovation, Lesbian Politics and Gay Religion as Art is what keeps Celebrity Firebrand Lesbian Novelist Sage Sweetwater and The Sundance Wives prolific and moving way on ahead of the generic pack. Lesbian Politics votes its success of a brand through promoting religion through the concept it be art. Sage Sweetwater's study of religion confirms the power of successful marketing of religion, unanimously agreed upon by industry professionals in the entertainment industry. Heavily instrumental in packaging and development of religion in film is intrinsic to the success of Sage Sweetwater Creative Properties and The Sundance Wives Entertainment Group which happen to cross over to Lesbian Politics and Erotica where Sage Sweetwater and The Sundance Wives Entertainment Group have packaged Gay Religion as art with Director Wendy Crouse DreamReal Pictures.
Tattoo parlors inside churches and The Sundance Wives are changing religion forever. Perhaps we'll see the Official Powder River Jesus† 2012 signature tattoo of the Jett Durango Lesbian Western Film and Television Series. The Sundance Wives are artists.
