Christians are Stupid

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 …

Gone Shopping

Dracula escorted his newly created undead aide into the store.

"...and you need to sleep in the daytime," he explained.

"But what are we doing here in Sleepy's Mattress store?" asked his aide. "I thought we slept in coffins."

"We are modern now," replied Dracula. "We use a mattress like anyone else. I tell you, after two hundred years of sleeping on rock and dirt, this is a joy. So much more comfortable and you don't have to haul it around from place to place."

"Amazing," said the aide.

"For a newbie like you, maybe you want to go traditional. Sleepy's has a Posturedic that will fit inside a coffin."

"What do you use?" asked the aide.

"I have a sleep-number bed. I love it. Mrs. Dracula can toss and turn and I don't feel it on my side."

"Now that you mention the ladies, I think I will skip the coffin. A moo…

Girl Fantasy

I am binge watching Lost Girl on Netflix.  It's a fantasy television show where the main character is a succubus.  A succubus is a demon who feeds on sexual energy.  You can imagine, with a premise like that, why this show was on TV for five years or so.  It's a light show, not much heavy drama or violence, but then I have only watched three episodes.

There are issues with Lost Girl.   Let's start with the obvious.  The succubus is a woman, not a man.  If the demon were a man, we would be uninterested in the show.  As we all know, men have that famous second brain that controls them.  It's just men being men to like, want, and actively pursue sex.  That's boring. 

There is a another reason that the succubus is a woman.  This implies that women who like, want, and actively pursues sex can only be demons.   I've got news for you, women have that second brain too.  It's just tiny compared to men's.  Maybe that's why …
