My Jesus is better than your Jesus!

Before we headed to our play tonight we grabbed some burgers at one of the best burger places in Dallas, Goff's. Being that Goff's is in the Park Cities it is frequented by the children of Dallas' Republican evangelical elite (shudder). Close your eyes and eat your burger y'all and all will be well.

Across the restaurant there was a group of high school kids, three girls one boy. Obviously they were about to have a debauched orgy when last minute one of them remembered how their Abstinence Education, (C) W, classes taught them the effective "Lets go get a burger" diversion line. They were getting up to leave when female spawn #1 began talking about a boy that they all knew from school. She ended her commentary on the boy by saying, "He's a christian. Well he's Catholic like me, but thats christian though." Her friend, female spawn #2, looked back at her as they walked out the front door gave her a look of bewilderment and said unenthusiastically, "Well...I guess so."

In these parts being Catholic is about that same as being "a gay." Isn't Texas fascinating?!

If it were only just Texas. Sigh.

If you don't have the same mental illness as I do, then I don't want any part of you.

Mental illness being that you identify yourself as a Christian.

What, too harsh? Did you see Trading Spouses finale this week?

Ha! I get that in class aaaalllll the time. Students say things like "Christians and Catholics believe in Jesus" Don't get them started on Mormons (cult) or Muslims (pagans). If you ain't southern baptist, you're gonna go to hell.

Trading Spouses was horrific, but fascinating. I soooo wanted to get 'darksided' after seeing ms catholic christ-warrior rant on about it.

weep for the kids, though.

I was raised Lutheran. That denomination is sub-divided into different Synods, which basically hold the same beliefs, but some are more conservative than others. I remember my first day of confimation class, in the highly conservative Wisconsin Synod. The pastor told us that the kids who went to the slightly less conservative Missouri Synod church across town were in danger of going to hell, because the Missouri Synod practiced many false teachings, almost as bad as the Catholics. That was when I first began to reject Christianity.
