The Brighton Argus had a story the other day about a school, or rather the chair of governors of a school, complaining about religious education not being a core subject – using words like ‘shock’, ‘horror’ and ‘outrage’.
This being the Argus, he gets a right shoeing in the comments. This is my favourite:
Christianity! COME ON!
The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a ‘rib-woman’ was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree… yeah, makes perfect sense. It is this sort of belief that will make us all Americans if we are not careful!
