I love what you're doing.  Myself, I prefer beer...a lot less time involved in the making of my drinks.  The pain of the Christian life is much deeper and more serious than you imply.  Yes, it all sound so foolish and absurd.  But I just buried my Mother.  She went to her death not certain whether she would end up in heaven or in hell.  My mother went to her death in fear.  It isn't a joke.  It's a reality.  You're in Ohio, I'm in West Virginia.  Maybe that's the difference.  My mother grew up playing with dolls just like any girl should...but instead of wedding ceremonies she would act out funeral services ending with her burying her dolls in the sandy dirt under the high porch.

My mother went to her death in terror not knowing if she would wake up in heaven or in hell.

These Christian bastards have to pay for what they did to my Mother...what they are trying to do for me.

It isn't a joke.  It isn't about ignorant people you don't know.  It's real.  It's happening today.

Goddamned these mothefuckers.

I know how you feel, Philip. I'm the only non-religious individual in my immediate family. Most of them shun me, as if I were a bad person because I dared to ask questions. They live in a bubble of confirmation bias & are frightened of anything that might jeopardize their fragile faith. It's sad.
