Subject: Holy Humor


                  A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, "I know what the Bible means!">                  His father smiled and replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?>                  The son replied, "I do know!"
>                  "Okay," said his father. "What does the Bible mean?"
>                  "That's easy, Daddy..." the young boy replied excitedly," It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.' (This one is my favorite) 
>                  There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country.
>                  "Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal clerk.
>                  "Only the Ten Commandments." answered the lady. 
>                  "Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good morning, Lord," and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning." 
>                                  A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn't find a space with a meter.
>                  Then he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: "I have circled the block 10 times. If I don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. Forgive us our trespasses."
>                  When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note "I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket I'll lose my job. Lead us not into temptation." 
>                                  There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to his congregation: "I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets." 
>                                 While driving in Pennsylvania, a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because attached to the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign... "Energy efficient vehicle: Runs on oats and grass. Caution: Do not step in exhaust." 
>                  A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?"
>                  A hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy.
>                  "Really? How do you know?" the teacher asked.
>                  "You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven.." 
>                 >                  A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.
>                  "Reverend," said the young man, "I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip."
>                  The minister chuckled, "I know what you mean. It's the same in my business." 
>                  >                  People want the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the center of attention. 
>                  Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about.
>                  The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt."
>                  Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day , the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
>                  He said "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming." 
>                  Last, but not least, a great one: 
>                  The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play.
>                  "Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."
>                  During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."
>                  At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner."
>                  And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!

Per the last knee-slapper, wonder when we'll start seeing anti Colin Kaepernick forwards?

Jezzuz, these people are crackpots.

Then again, I have to wonder how many mouth breathing RW-ers can actually read well enough to make their way through this tedious, windbaggy screed. Super corny, it reads like a never ending 'Reader's Digest' entry.

I guess this is how, and where this ever-shrinking group of troglodytic theocrats like to spend their time since they've lost the culture war...and lose it they have: spectacularly. The demographic shift is coming to take whoever is left; better get bust writing! Time is short.

A couple of these show how these Mega Churches use their dubious Propserity Gospel to rob the rubes and increase the coffers of the "minister." But it's all good if you invoke Jesus or are being patriotic-y.

OTOH, these corny "jokes" attempt to portray rightwingers as good natured, reasonable "just folks" who read their Bible and act graciously. Too bad the reverse is true.

They might read the bible but it just doesn't sink in.

Parts of it do sink in - the parts that can be used to justify mistreating people.

They never seem to get far enough into the book to read the part about how taking care of the sick and the poor is deemed to be mandatory.
