Freethinker Sunday Sermonette: Sunday School and confession

If I have to work on my grant on a Sunday morning, then you have to watch this. Penance. Because you aren't in Sunday School:

I'm writing this on Sunday night, at the end of a really fun weekend.

I'm going to take a vacation tomorrow. I'm going to get up early in the morning, ride my bike to my office, and hunker down in front of my computer, putting some of my collaborators' contributions into a grant proposal. What? That doesn't sound like your idea of a vacation? What about last week,…

Whoa boy, Revere! You have just GOT to finishthat grant soon!!!!

O'Leary: LOL. You noticed. Yes, it's taking its toll. It's grant writing 7 days a week for the next 2 months. I'm glad there's a deadline. Although at the rate I'm going, it will be the line where I'm dead.

No one should have to go through what you're going through Revere. We all empathize.

Absolutely fucking hilarious (and brilliant), revere! I laughed my ass off, watching the cartoon priest digest all of the "confession." If the creators of this little piece aimed something like it at Islam, they would all have to go into hiding for the rest of their lives.

Dylan, Wasn't that long ago that they would have to go in hiding for the rest of their lives in any Christian world. They burned witches didn't they?
"1814: Society of Jesus, suppressed since 1773, is restored. The Inquisition continues until 1834, Church-sanctioned torture until 1917."

We can return to that state of intolerance in a flash - all the signs are out there.

Today in Sunda School we talked about how great Heaven is going to be and how evolutionists will be non-existant, everyone will be normal, no gay agenda trying to take over, no diseases, no evil, no war, no death, no socialists, no communists, etc. will be allowed there. Only those who have their name written in the book of life and to get that done, evil has to be acknowledged in your life and destroyed. Only those who asked to be saved will be there. All other better be wearing a flame retardant suit.

It will be nice to have a place where socialism is forbidden and freedom is encouraged and indivual soveriegnty will once again exist. Private property will exist again with some government snooping into your business. It will be a wonderful place. No ACLU, no abortions, no evil of any kind.

Load the Richard Dawkins cannon and point it at Reverend Right.

Let's see, there won't be any socialism because everyone will have everything they need...God will be in charge but somehow individuals will have sovereignty--I dunno, I'll be happy if people can spell and use reasonable grammar. Freakin' religious people, man--we'd be a lot closer to heaven if there weren't so many of 'em.

If you tell a priest a secret, is it still a secret?

Or should one heed the dictum that "two can keep a secret provided one of them is dead"?

*so many decisions . . . and tough ones, to boot*

"indivual soveriegnty"? What Bible is the right rev reading?
