Reflections on a Random Journal
twizedkitty. 20 years old. Apparently living at home with parents in Michigan. She likes to post poetry and poll results. I'm sensing a trend here. The latest poll she took almost tempted me to take it. It's the "What Jesus Would You Be?" Poll. She would be the Jesus with Bunnies. For some reason, I really get off on the mocking-Jesus thing. Maybe it's partially being brought up Catholic, and partially just being . . . can't find a good adjective . . . annoyed at? scornful of? superior to? amused by? all of the "have you been saved?" crap that I've seen. Jesus is my personal savior; we go golfing every Saturday morning. Have you accepted Jesus into your life? Have you been saved? I don't know for sure why it bothers me so much. That bears more thinking about, probably.

Okay, I succumbed.

I am George Christ, Jesus' brother. I am a little on the bitter side, but I still love my mom and take care of the environment.

I refuse to post a link to the poll, or one of those pictures.

I think I prefer the polls where it's not so transparent how they got the answers.

Am am bugged along two vectors by these people...

  1. Evangelism of any kind is boring, and boring is bad.

  2. Having grown up within religion, and all the social structures it brings to the table, makes "magic trick" religion/cults seem extra-false. The major religions have wide-reaching secular effects on their members, giving them rules about how to live. The magic things, be they "Accept Christ into your heart" or "Chant 'Mumble foo padme hum' on streetcorners", purport you can do some arbitrary thing that doesn't affect your secular life at all, and you're set for eternity.
