Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe.
- Albert Einstein
I can understand differences of opinion. Not everyone thinks like me…and that’s probably a good thing. I don’t have all the answers, don’t pretend to have them, and don’t particularly want to have them. Though I try to be tolerant of those who think differently, I fall miserably short when it comes to overt, unabashed expressions of sheer, unbridled stupidity. Few topics bring this out more than Christianity, which, though a perfectly serviceable religion, is the anchor to which too many intellectually bereft souls have hitched their moral boats. Sad as this might be, it can be quite entertaining when viewed in the proper light. Few do this better than local comic god Matt Bors, who gets some truly incoherent emails from some very unhinged people. I’m grateful to him for sharing them; my latest fave is this one from a local…uh, fan:
Hi there. I just read your comic Afghans in their own words. If these are the real words of the Afghan peopl then I would hope that you are educating them on the truth.
Yes Pres. Obama was raised a Muslim. Yes he claims to be a Christian but his life does not reflect Biblical truth. Christians do not believe in abotion and they especially do not vote against a measure that would allow doctors to perfom life saving techniques to save a baby who had survived an abortion.
Christian do not believe that Homesexuality is natural. President Obama does. Christians would not be freinds with un-repentant terrorists. Christains do not believe in Socialism. They see it as enslavement.
I hope that you are teaching the Afghan people these truths about our president whom is the least qualified president ever elected. I hope that you are teaching them that a president whoim tramples on the rights of his own people is no better then the Taliban.
And you wonder why I moved from Beaverton to Portland….
No commentary is really necessary, is it? Sometimes the jokes…well, they just write themselves, knowhutimean?? Yes, they most certainly do. ;-)
