Isn’t this just the cutest thing you ever did see?

It’s a page from an old Irish Catholic schoolbook.


I like how not only do they clearly indicate the hierarchy of God’s love, but they force the child to be complicit in assigning that love by circling the right picture — that’s excellent indoctrination technique right there. It’s a bonus that they don’t even bother to show the baptized baby; its worth comes from the priest’s hand.

I know most religious people aren’t terrorists are raving homophobes or fundagelical zealots…it’s the little conceits and assumptions like this that make me despise religion the most.
