And here's the parody version.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 2, 2015 at 4:40pm

Silly! Do you remember when judges sat in judgment of others and gave long lectures, silly lectures by my standards? I listened to some silly lectures from judges when I interviewed them about family violence. I heard silly things from them, kind of like that blond hysteric woman. There is something about religion that makes people crazy, silly ... like the law enforcement officers who hit or shoot someone that does not look as they do or behave as police instruct them. Silly. Kind of reminds me of the abusive men I interviewed and listened to their tirades about how women cause men to hit women. Silly! Or the ministers I interviewed who defined women's roles and their imperative to submit. Silly! Or the police chief I interviewed who told raped women to lay back and enjoy it. Silly! 

The time is come to just laugh at these foolish people and get on with life, with all the joys, beauty, love that surrounds us. After all, we are not born to listen to foolish men and women. We are born to love, and care, and to be compassionate, and strong, and wise, and grateful for all that is so very good. 

I want to cry when I listen to such foolishness.

Laughing feels better and I can get mobilized faster if I see them as clowns! Or buffoons, or fools, or idiots, or dolts, or simpletons, or ignoramuses.

They are hate mongers, no other words fits them. I intend to be clear about how I feel about their nonsense. No need to be polit in the face of fools.

Apparently to them as to most Christians being victimized means not getting to call all of the shots all of the time. They used to be able to fool all of the people all of the time (and just kill any holdouts), but the times they have a-changed.

What chutzpah for catholicvote.org to present believers in dogma and discrimination as the "victims" here!

Comment by Loren Miller on July 2, 2015 at 1:51pm

Wow!  To put it at its mildest, THAT was impressive as HELL, Bertold!  Seems like there's at least one christian out there who takes what I would hope the most positive aspects of Jesus' message to heart.

Wish there were more of 'em.

In contrast, here's a very different reaction in a highly unusual Christian act of contrition:

Thanks for the memories, Daniel!

She got one thing right when she said "My word isn't truth." If she's the future of Christianity, I'd say we've already won. I love that down in the comments some viewer posted for her edification Betty Bowers' explanation of "traditional marriage." That ought to straighten her right out.

Wow Daniel, that just proves that all the Fruit Loops don't come in a box.  She claims to have read her Bibble Book but I bet she means that someone told her about all the grody bits that she really wants to believe.  Of course, them being super

holy people they would never Lie?  That book is so right in every way, you know why, because the book says it is the truth and you are not allowed to disagree.

Time's article is WAYYYY overdue.

Churches should never have been tax-exempt, and it should have been written into the constitution.  They are a business, like any other...that's entertainment.  If you buy tickets for a Broadway show or a circus, the tax is included in the overall price.

With honest bookkeeping, small congregations would probably not have to pay anything.  Of course mega-churches don't know the meaning of "honest," but I'd love to see them go bankrupt the way Robert Schuller has. They deserve it just for being arrogant,

Time's article is spot on. But, like Loren said, premature. I hope to see the day government lives up to the admonition that Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion by giving them tax exemptions. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be in my lifetime.

On another note, here's a great video courtesy of a reference by Brother Richard. The glaring difference between an adult who learned to hate, and a child who learned love.
