Half Right, Anyway…

I’m a sucker for church signs.

Mind you, they are trying to own anything positive while distancing themselves from anything negative; an old trick, but obviously one that has worked for some. But seriously, the Jesus described in the bible was not great, if you take it at face value. He was at best “good”, and at worst a bit of an ass, leader of a small cult, had a bit of a temper…

But I must say, the tide might well be turning when even churches (well, at least this one) are ceding the “religion is a positive force” claim, and retreating into smaller and smaller corners.

    Jesus and his gang took a small Middle Eastern cult and weaponized it. The result has probably caused more death and misery than smallpox.

    My guess: Once the preacher gets the flock completely separated from other religious people, he’ll start talking about double tithes, and triple tithes – and there will be nobody left to tell the flock that it’s all a con.

    Oh, “religion” must be all those other churches’ flavors of Christianity.

    Someday the government will be controlled by atheists.

    Then we will all be happy!

    few atheists take that straw stance (good thing, too–it would be a long wait); I don’t care what religious views my politicians have, so long as they hold those views independently of the laws they expect all of us to follow.

    I once saw a sign that said “There are no fire escapes in Hell.”

    I really wish I’d taken a picture.

    No, the sign is 100% right. Religion real does stink, And Jesus, the guy who cuts their lawn, did a really good job this week.

    Sometimes the weaponization was *with* smallpox.
