Bobby-Jo Saved Me

Still at home and vey bored.

I did watch one entertaining show last night which explained what 'the rapture' is. Apparently, upwards of 70 million Americans (and many others, of course) believe that if they accept Christ into their hearts (read: are "saved"), they will be beamed up to heaven and spared the 7 year reign of the Anti-Christ. You could be a murderer (not sure about gay), but as long as you've got a bit of Jesus in ya, you're OK. That sentence sorta rhymed. The rest of us heathens will be ominously 'left behind'. Unsurprisingly, a large number of these mystics are also Christian fundamentalists. There is no reference to this rapture in the Bible, mind you, but that's irrelevant even though I genuinely have never heard so many people interpret the Bible or any other text as literally as these peeps. And their interpretation is rigid and immature. It would be funny if they weren't as politically powerful as they are. Actually, it's still funny.

In news closer to home and of a far more practical nature, Harpoon's first budget comes down today. Let's hope that he isn't a total idiot.

Yes, and these are the same people who murder abortion doctors. But like you said, if it's in the name of Jesus Christ then they be saved from the devil.

They're almost like suicide bombers.

Oh and I am almost positive there is no "redemption" for Homo's according to these evangelists. I guess you are out of luck as far as being beemed into the heavens.

Don't worry, I will meet you in hell and there we will party happily ever after.

Yes, I thought there was a creep connection between the beamers and bombers.

If heaven is full of Bobby-Jo's and their big hair, I don't want in.
