Um...what?

On my way back from the RTPCR lab this morning I saw an ad in the Arts tunnel board that made me stop walking. It was a poster advertising a "Speed date night - Christian style!" (yes, that part was bolded and italicised...shudder...). It went on to say a number of ways how, if I was between 19 and 29 (whew!) and was having trouble meeting a "godly" partner, that this...THIS was my chance to do that... and in a licenced environment. Yes, apparently this event was "finally my turn to get out and meet that special christian someone".

Oh dear god.
And it's a licenced event?

Does this make me an evil person? (Or just a really sarcastic one who doesn't get out enough...)

If they give the other person enough of a chance, that is...
