Smackdown Christianity

An article in the New York Times last week described a group of Christian ministries based on mixed martial arts.  One of these ministries has the motto: “Where Feet, Fist and Faith Collide.”  This type of ministry, according to the article, "is part of a larger and more longstanding effort on the part of some ministers who fear that their churches have become too feminized, promoting kindness and compassion at the expense of strength and responsibility."

I can see that it has a place in the church, as long as MMA are legal and has fans, but it doesn't particularly appeal to me, though that's probably because I'm too old.  Maybe I need a ministry based on mixed photographic arts?

Thanks David!
