A Jami-ism

I love my son, at times like this more than any other. The logic of the five-year-old mind is a joy to watch.

Grandpa - "Pa" - came over, and Jami was giving him the tour of our Christmas decorations. Under our tree we have a train on a circular track - pictured there to the right - and inside the circle is our nativity scene. It's a Fisher Price "Little People" set. Jami pointed out the major players, landing finally on the plastic baby Jesus.

My father-in-law, never one to miss an opportunity, asked if Jami knew why Jesus was important, and went on to explain in gentle, general terms, that Jesus died so that we could go to Heaven even if we're bad.

Jami considered this, weighing it in his mind.

"Well," he concluded, "He's gonna hafta die again, because I was really bad today."

Let us begin with the Right-Wing Conservative's assertion that the Bible is the immutable Word of God. Every statement therein is true - nay, even fact - to be interpreted literally in all cases.

Add a heaping tablespoon of politics.

Fold in several cups of idiocy.

Sprinkle hypocrisy to taste.

Before serving, carefully and completely remove the ability to see irony.

Ladies, gentlemen, I present to you The Conservative Bible Project.

I especially like #6, applying logic with its full force and effect, and #9, crediting open-mindedness.

Just read the first page. The arrogance would be laughable if it weren't so tragic.

Saw this Reuters photo, had to make an LOLPope out of it.

SFW, but I'm just being polite. )
