See God Love.
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" We hope you'll enjoy your stay. How do you like our new official logo?
Please be advised that this site is now Google-free, at least until those despicable billionaire thieves stop caving to Chinese government
interests and let the citizens of the most populous country on the planet communicate honestly with one another and the rest of the world.
Chinese government to Google: Bend over, we'll drive.
Google: Oink oink. Is the check in the mail?
Today's topic: Great Expectations, Dashed
Pope Rat has issued his first encyclical. About time, he's been wearing that fancy expensive crown for almost a year.
The former head of the Holy Inquisition (they call it something more user-friendly now) might have been expected to inveigh against pagans, even to call for a renewal of public burning of witches.
Instead he releases a 76-page document, the jist of which is, "God is love, and we must all start with this kind of love to achieve love in other venues."
Hold the presses. What a novel notion!
He must be attending Methodist sermons.
Oh yeah. The pope encourages Christians to give to the poor and to show mercy to the disabled and the downtrodden.
Gosh, the originality is breathtaking. And it goes on like this for 76 pages.
Where I come from they say charity starts at home. So my advice to Pope Rat is to find himself a humble fishing boat and sell Vatican City and its many treasures to private collectors, giving the largesse gained to the poor and the downtrodden.
Or maybe he should just organize The Mother of All Monte Carlo Nights, taking a clue from the local parish church/school down the street from me. Drink and gamble the night away, assured that you're helping the poor!
Once again the bored gods are wondering how this religion continues its hegemony, given the hypocrisy throughout.
Blood's all I got to give, but hey. Here's my arm.
