I saw this on Facebook's "I'm fed up with ugly churches". It did not say where this is, but it isn't fake:
What does it mean for you?
Being eaten alive by a sea monster. Preaching from the belly of a whale.
It would be more fun if it also had a sliding board.
Sea Serpent Baroque Pulpit from a parish church in Dobroszów, a village in in south-western Poland. It’s from around 1750 and was rebuilt in 1856.It's, it's, it's TRADITIONAL!

It means that you should never go to bed after eating a large burrito and reading Moby Dick.
It's, it's, it's TRADITIONAL! I like that! I wonder what the reaction (including my own) if that was constructed today ? Personally I like to see a variety of art within a church, both art from older churches relocated and newly commissioned artwork. Unfortunately a lot of times the new commissioned art work is often used to promote a message that a good number of the parishioners find objectionable. I think that what is nice about this pulpit is that it is both whimsical and biblical.
Yes, I think also we need more traditional skulls in churches, carved ones and walls of them. Maybe even another plague....oh, wait....ok, a REAL plague with 50% mortality. It's...it's...TRADITIONAL.
