Christians are Stupid

Image result for popes bibles

I overheard a conversation while in the shopping mall.  The people were saying that the pope was not following the Bible and that he was misleading people and that he is a devil.  I presume that they were speaking of the Roman Catholic Pope.

Normally, I do not intrude on other people’s conversation but I could not help myself.  You could say that God made me do it.  I told them that for all the bad things they are saying about the pope, they can rest assured that the pope is also saying bad things about them.  They were shocked.  No doubt they are now saying bad things about me too.  Rest assured that I too will be saying bad things about them.

We Christians (and that includes me!) are a stupid bunch. We all read the same Bible and yet we all have different ideas of what the Bible says.  I don't get this. Was God so unclear?  Nope, I blame King James.  He had the Bible translated into English.  If he left the Bible in Greek none of us could read it and we would have avoided these mis-readings of the Bible.

Another thing I don't get is why Christians go out to convert other Christians to Christianity.   Makes no sense to me.  What is the point to convert a Christian who believes in God and Jesus into a Christian who believes in God and Jesus.  Surely there are a few Muslims and Buddhists out there in the world who would benefit from some Christian enlightenment.  

Well, turns out that there is a right kind of Christian and a wrong kind of Christian.  The difference is, "If you agree with me then you are the right kind of Christian.  If you agree with me then that entitles you to the Blessings that God offers in the Bible."  That's the royal me, not me personally.

I, who have read the English version of the Bible, will now reveal a heretofore unknown and unwanted truth: 

Although they would never admit it, the other Christian groups are envious of the Pope.

The pope is at the top of the religious heap.  The pope has influence all over the world, has all that church money at his disposal, and has all those huge Gothic cathedrals.  The other Christians say bad things about the pope, hoping to elevate themselves and to eventually replace him. 

I, who have read the English version of the Bible for a second time, will now reveal another unwanted truth:

Send someone around to convert the pope into the right kind of Christian, then tell him that he has to share.

Amen brother, Amen.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

by The Urban Blabbermouth
At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.

On the first day, the Big Bad Wolf…
