• You are all going to Hell

    From Lee Lofaso@2:203/2 to Björn Felten on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 03:50:58
    Hello Bjrn,

    What do you mean "they"?
    The whole world is going to hell in a handbasket.

    Actually no. Only those who believe in Hell. Strangely enough, there's not a
    single mention of Hell in "their" holy book.

    A fundamentalist preacher reminded me about that some time ago.
    When Christians say their prayers, they are asking two things -

    * Give us this day our daily bread.
    * Deliver us from evil.

    So where are we?
    Is this what I think it is?
    Hell on earth?

    There is a third thing, but most folks shrug it off.
    Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those against us.

    Real sporting. Do unto us as we do unto others.
    The golden rule in reverse.

    No wonder folks wanted to crucify Jesus.

    But then again, neither is "their" ombudsmen to God (priests, bishops, popes). Not once anywhere. But hey, when you believe in an imaginary fantasy-figure, why not add some real figures that are not even mentioned or defined. After all, logic has never been a part of the Christian cult.

    There were people outside the January 6 rally wearing t-shirts
    types in the crowd that was there. By their lights, Trump is their
    god. Their lord and savior. The chosen ones.

    With 6 Catholics on the USSC (out of 9 justices), this has become
    a court straight out of The Handmaid's Tale, just like the land of
    Gideon. And they are just getting started with their rulings.

    For Life,

    As Good As It Looks
