Bargain of the Day: Good stuff, for a change.

Englandshire: Dr. Who fans could find themselves a bargain as the memorabilia collection of Simon White goes on sale after he swapped science fiction for fantasy.

The collection, which Mr White estimates is worth nearly £7,000, was built up over a number of years but is to be cast aside because of his religious beliefs.

Dr Who and his materialistic obsession with it represents the greatest lie that Satan ever told according to Mr White...

He said: God delivered me from the evil that is Dr Who.

Don't offer too much now. We wouldn't want to reward him for his sinfulness now, would we?

Oh, come one D. Who, there's worse things for a Satan figure to do:

1. Convince people that "voices in their heads" are actually in control of their behavior. Since we speak languages, we are going to think and hear in languages--even when they are not there. Now go get that axe, Lizzie Borden.

2. Allow humanity to be itself. People do dumb things without any help.

3. Nurture laziness. Why think about "morality" when you can think about it tomorrow? Better yet, schedule it for 2 years after I die from playing too much WoW and break the world record for half-ton Playboy bunnies.

4. Convince people of his own non-existence. Think about it: how many of us don't believe Satan exists? If s/he did exist, s/he'd be winning that fight about 2 generations ago. Even many Christians don't believe Satan exists.

5. I think I'd prefer my downfall to have something to do with Fabio. Sex sells. ( Oh, bad thought: Sex selling Christianity. o.O;)

6. Oh, what were those 7 deadly thingies? Oh, yeah, Anger management is one of them. It's time to stay angry.

My point? Irrelevant of the religion, people hit rock bottom over some of the weirdest things, and each and every one of them is an extremely personal demoralizer and life-changing event. I mean, how many of the Christians go running around watching Dr. Who? I know there's got to be some out there, just like there's got to be a "anything but Christianity group"out there that harbors "Who-haters".

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.
