Rate your priest on new German website

BERLIN (Reuters Life!) - You can rate your restaurant meal, your make-up, your teacher online and now in Germany your priest.

Hirtenbarometer (hirtenbarometer.de) or the "shepherds' barometer" is the first online platform where priests can be rated for their performance at church services, on projects for youths and the elderly, on their credibility and on how up to date they are.

"Pastoral work should be qualitative," Andreas Hahn, one of the founders said of the original idea behind the site, adding they hoped "to stimulate dialogue to improve pastoral work."

Also, "many parishes work well but their performance doesn't become public," Hahn said of the platform's function.

If you will, you can become all flame.

Well, they do say that that which is not measured will not improve.

If they were modeling this site on RateMyProfessors.com, then there should be a hotness rating.

I remember there is also a "rate my guru" site somewhere for Buddhists and Hindus.

LOL! I would like to see a study done on the correlation between hot pepper rating and church attendance ;)

Hotness only goes so far though. ;)  :angel:  I had a philosophy teacher last year who was smoking hot, but who was... let's say... not up to the task of teaching the material properly. I'd have been much happier with a 70 year old man with a ZZ Top beard teaching me than this woman. So to with church... will a hot priest make up for possibly droning and meandering 30 minute sermons?

Also, what is his beer of choice? Priests that prefer a Belgian Quad and consider it bread, not wine or oil during the fast get extra points.

I saw Isa on that site. He got some scathing reviews.

I love RateMyProfessors! I would probably waste so much time on RateMyPriest ;)

And the looks aren't everything, but sometimes we can't just spend the entire service staring at icons, you know?

This is excellent. Imagine this being applied to us.

I honestly thought this was going to be a pedophile thing. If you can't trust your bishops to depose a child molester, then you can at least use these websites to give your priest a bad rating if he touches your kid inappropriately!

And the problem begins when I get mad at how my priest chastised me for wearing a miniskirt to church on Sunday....and then all I have to do is click and write a fairly plausible story!

Hey, I say if false charges get trumped-up then the priest gets to actually do whatever he's being accused of. It's only fair. If you have to go down in flames, you should get to have the fun.
