St. Patrick, driving the snakes out of Ireland. This is a Tim Nyberg delight.
I swiped this from the current issue of The Wittenburg Door, which is a really funny online magazine of religious parody and satire. Don't get all huffy and offended though; the Wittenburg Door is a genuinely religious magazine; they satirize the church because they love it, and it would just be wrong not to make fun of the idiots out there. Not all Christians are Pat Robertson or Jan Crouch. In fact, only two of them are. (The rest of us are really grateful for that statistic.) My favorite segment of the Door is the roundup of hilariously bad and merely hilarious "religious" videos. Those of you who watch late-night TV probably already know about "Godstuff." These videos are not faked. They're the real thing. That's why they're so funny. (And also why they're so sad. Sigh.)
You don't have to be a Christian to love the Wittenburg Door, and if you are, you have to be an intelligent one. The online subscription is free. It's satire, parody, and vicious opinion, and it's hilarious. Go now, or the devil won't put all his money in my personal bank account, and you won't get to see a video of a so-called 'evangelist' who is knocking sick people over like tenpins, in a frenzy of 'healing' that looks more like a gang war.
Check it out. If you love some good sarcastic wit, you'll love the Wittenburg Door. And no, I don't work for them. I just love them.
I also love making fun of Jan Crouch. But then, who doesn't? Not many women can out-Tammy Fae even Tammy Fae herself. Scheisse, she looks like a nickel hooker and sounds like Melanie Griffith on crack.
And I'm being kind.
P.S. Don't expect another "Landover Baptist." There can only be one of those. And it's divinely wonderful.
P.P.S. If you don't enjoy or understand vicious satire and parody, or if your religion is so shaky and uncertain that it can't stand up to some questions and humor, don't go to either site. You wouldn't like them. But then, if that's the case, why are you here?
