A pastor in Eugene, Oregon hopes to recruit new members to his congregation with a catchy, but controversial slogan: "Church Sucks!" Pastor Tony Crank has been mailing out hundreds of fliers with the slogan to homes in the area. His idea is to create a place where people who have not had the best church experiences in the past to reconnect to their faith. Crank says, "Some churches have become the kind of place where you point the finger and you condemn and you rebuke and are really quick to do it. And so I think that is definitely lending itself to people not wanting anything to do with church and thinking church sucks." He also believes churches around the world are not focusing enough on connecting people with god.
