St. Barnabas Church in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is "warning" that there could be shocking consequences for those who dump trash at the site, the Vancouver Sun website reports today (May 31, 2014).
Roxee Forrest -- associate warden at the church in the Brow of the Hill neighborhood -- said people have been dumping assorted items at the church, and this needs to stop. "It comes in the middle of the night. We've had two or three mattresses, a huge old china cabinet with broken doors," she said. "It's really a costly thing."
"It's not just us, it's happening to everybody," Forrest said. "People do it because they don't know what to do with it or they don't have the money to pay for it."
Rev. Emilie Smith has created a tongue-in-cheek sign from God that she hopes will deter people from dumping unwanted items at the church -- as it could have electrifying consequences. "Do not drop your crap here... Management of St. Barnabas Church not responsible for lightening bolts," states the sign.
