Morning Cup O' Joe

Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time.

The Devil’s Night

The church/school that I used to go to would hand stacks of these out, seriously, as an “evangelical activity,” even though they look so ridiculous to most people that you’d have to assume they were printed as a joke.

After growing up in that kind of environment, I really should be (even) more messed up than I am today.

Fortunately for me, though, even as a kid I never came close to taking them seriously. My reaction to them back then was pretty much the same as my reaction to them today: “WTF?” I remember I used to try to collect one of each “comic” they made to see how much more ridiculous they would get.

Some other notably ridiculous ones:

  • Are Roman Catholics Christians?: “Religion can’t save, only Jesus can!”
  • Last Rites: “When this Catholic dies, he learns that his church couldn’t save him.”
  • Fairy Tales: “They were just fantasy games … all in fun. But they influenced Harry to make the biggest mistake of his life.”
  • Who Is Allah?: “The message of ‘Allah Had No Son’ redrawn for black readers.”

The point I’m trying to make by linking to these is that as ridiculous as they may seem, there are actually people (lots of them!) out there who actually believe this stuff, wholeheartedly and without question.
I’m moving to Japan.

  1. As I browsed through some of these links, my mood changed from “light-heartedly amused” to “sadly horrified.”

    These are handbooks on how to judge, condemn and hate.
