David Silverman’s “Darwin Was Wrong” Moment

The reason for the season: persecution complexes

Christ… OR ELSE

Wow, these Christians make a compelling argument for converting to Christianity that totally actually works exactly like this in real life. CHRIST OR DIE from Everything Is Terrible! on Vimeo.
