I’m rather fond of holidays that make us reflect on our rights, so I marked International Blasphemy Day briefly this morning with a Tweet:
I’m happy without your religion, thanks. Luckily, I enjoy working to improve the world while others just pray. #BlasphemyDay
What I didn’t realize was that this was a gift-giving holiday. I apologize for not getting y’all something, but I’m happy to share what other people gave me in response to my Tweet. The first was this lovely comic from Miscellanea. (Also available as a t-shirt.) I’d seen it before, but it’s always worth another look.
The other (oh, the other) gift I got was a link to a video for a Bible prophecy group that damned near self-mocking.
Q: How do you predict the exact date of events from reading the Bible?
A: Wait until they’ve already happened.
Q: How will knowing when Armageddon will come is going to help save people’s marriages?
A: Hang on, honey. It’s only for a few days more.
Happy International Blasphemy Day, everyone!
