Ummm... did you notice that this service was held aboard a ship?In the most glaring example so far... it must grudgingly be accepted that these quotation marks are 100% correct.Since the word "church" isn't being used in its literal sense, its perfectly valid (and specifically more correct) to put it into quotes.Tsk Tsk.
what it mean
i think they are referring to winston churchill? maybe that is his nickname?
I agree with the first commenter. I think this is actually a proper use of quotation marks, unless there is a dedicated church on board, rather than a chapel or a modified church service.
i thought it might have been a reference to churchill also but the caption for the picture was consistent in the use of quotes around the word. it even mentions that the Queen Mary actually has a church on board - with no quotes.i think the use of quotes is correct although they could have used something generic like "religious services" and not have the quotes.
let me reiterate: I don't care about "proper" and "improper" quotation marks. I care about necessary vs funny.
sorry, bethany! in that case, using the quotes three or four times in the caption is funny! maybe there was a contest in the office that day to see who could use them the most!
