I had fully intended on writing something about the whole MERGER-MANIA that is currently sweeping the #cdnpoli Twitter stream. Much wringing of hands! Woot!
Didja realise that merger and murder are separated by but one letter?
Think about it…
“Redrum. Redrem.” “Redrum. Redrem.”
OK. Two letters.
But! That will have to wait… cuz, and I’m sorry if I got some hopes all drive high-like… I have found something much more entertaining than the organizational thrashings of those of us to the left of Vic “hang ’em high” Toews.
Namely, the proposal that atheists be registered with the State of Florida. Yup, the The Christian National Registry of Atheists.” is his goal.
Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean , think about it . There are already National Registrys (sic) for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc..
This type of “National Registry” would merely be for information purposes . To inform the public of KNOWN ( i.e., self-admitted) atheists . For example , let’s say you live in Colorado Springs , Colorado , you could simply scroll down ( from the I-Net site /Blog ) I would have , to the State of Colorado , and then when you see “Colorado Springs” , you will see the names of all the self-admitted atheist(s) who live there ( e.g., if an atheist’s name happened to be “Phil Small” ) . The individual’s physical address , and other known personal information would NOT be disclosed ( though , perhaps a photo could be ).
Crazy. Oh Yes.
Scary? Even more so.
I’m traveling to D.C. next month. I have already had some trepidation about this given my posts ranting against the public funding of religious education, war, conquest by imaginary characters, etc. And this makes me even more nervous.
Border dude: “Excuse me, Mr. Marshall? Do you believe in God? Do you have faith that your soul will be saved by Jesus?
Me: “Um. Seriously, sir? Don’t you want to look in my carry-on for the BC bud I’m trying to sneak across the border?”
Border dude: “No sir. Need to confirm your spiritual mindset.”
