You have to wonder about a Religion so insecure that it can’t stand even the existence of anyone who might think it invalid, and thus must be treated like perverts.
As a proud Atheist, I think we would be doing the children of the world a grave disservice if we didn’t teach them the ‘Dos and Don’ts’ of what to do when encountering a faux-Christian. We can begin with a couple of easy ones:
Be suspicious. It seems that often, some of the very people decrying someone else’s immorality are guilty of the same thing.
Believe anything they say about what the Bible says. There’s an extremely good chance they’re wrong.
Another handy tip for the little ones is to teach them some questions to have handy, in case someone comes knocking on their door asking if they’d like to hear about the Bible. I’ll begin the list here:
“In the garden of Eden, as Adam was naming the animals, what non-Latin name did he give the Tyrannosaurus Rex?”
BTW, as to the question, “Why are they always so sad?”, the answer is, “Because we’re surrounded by blissfully ignorant faux Christians!”
Hat tip to Jane & Zooey, who contributed greatly to the content of this post.
This is our open thread. Have fun with the contest or talk about anything you like. Anything at all. Even the Bible. And if you do, I have a few questions for you. 🙂
UPDATE: Thanks to commenter Daniel below, we now have a source for this.
Daniel says they may be a parody. He may be right.
