Amusement via LiveJournal

Serawench offers a succinct explanation for why people who harangue you about religion are likely to live a much shorter life than others:

My mother isn't an alcoholic or an addict of any drug, but I find she uses her religion the same way others use those types of things. Everything in her life revolves around her religion — and while in reality her life isn't in danger from stupid actions while high or drunk, it is in danger from me clocking her the next time she tells me I'm going to hell if I don't convert.

And then there's Croaky's curious discussion on homosexuality in the form of a dialogue between God and Satan:

Lucy/ifer: Hey dad, got a question.
G-sama: Hm, what is it?
Lucy: Christianity as a whole kind of agrees that homosexuality is wrong, yes?
G-sama: Guess so.
Lucy: It is also a common belief that God is male, or at least you are most often portrayed as a man and a father, right?
G-sama: Yes. Though the big beard thing is SO old-fashioned.
Lucy: Right. And all over the world women claim celibacy as nuns to fully dedicate themselves to their faith and become The Brides of Christ, no?
G-sama: That too.
Lucy: Kind of like a personal no-touchy harem, that huh?
G-sama: Heheh.
Lucy: So then, what's the deal with the monks?
G-sama: The monks?
Lucy: The guys that do like your Brides and dedicate their body and soul to you. Y'know. The monks.
G-sama: Oh. Them.
Lucy: Well?
G-sama: Well that is...

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
