Either there’s a lot of unrepentant sinners attending church these days or God really hates contemporary Christian rock music:
More than 40 people were taken to hospital — three with serious injuries — after the floor caved in at a packed concert in an Abbotsford, B.C, church late Friday night.
“We were dancing in the front of the stage,” Kyle Weber, a teenager who was at the Christian rock concert, told CBC News. “The floor just collapsed. All the speakers just fell down [and] crashed a lot of people…. A lot of people fell through the floor.”
[…] A mosh pit in front of the stage was filled with teenagers, she said, and they were jumping and dancing. After the lighting fell, the floor beneath the mosh pit collapsed, she said, and the people on it fell through to the basement about three metres below.
About 1,200 people were watching the concert at the church, at 1661 McCallum Road, she said.
[…] Ian Hern, a youth pastor at the concert, said there were hundreds of youth jumping and dancing at the time.
“All of a sudden, one of the light poles started to tilt and then the whole floor just caved,” Hern said.
Some of the young members in his group suffered injuries such as a broken arm or a dislocated shoulder, Hern said.
“Obviously, the church floor wasn’t built to handle that number of people,” Hern said.
Or perhaps there was a thirteenth commandment: THOU SHALT NOT PARTY IN THE HOUSE OF THY LORD!
Is anyone else as amused by the idea of a Christian mosh pit as I am?
