When Religion Becomes A Big Joke-Response

Religion: When Religion Becomes A Big Joke

Who in the world would dare criticize religion?

Why would you say such a thing?

There is nothing funny about religion!

——————————————————————

So, how can you say:

When Religion Becomes A Big Joke

It is because I have been exposed to churches and pastors

that have allowed four letter words, five letter words, six letter

words and redneck sex education on to the pulpit and my

kids are listening.

—————————————————————

I have cringed every time I have heard the words:

‘flipping’, ‘fricking’, ‘that sucks’, and even, ‘oh, my God’.

‘That pisses me off’ is pretty common now. ‘Pimpin’ My Truck’

is just plain unacceptable.

—————————————————————

It was a jaw dropping experience to hear Reverend

Jeremiah Wright say, ‘God Damn America’. Although,

we, the citizens of America, probably deserved such harsh

criticism. Since then, I have softened my views on

Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s sermons and his parishioners.

————————————————————–

It is NOT that I am perfect. It is because- my

children are listening. It is because in the back of

my mind, I THINK THAT I know that those words are just

‘substitutes’ for harsher words or phrases. The four letter

words have just become casual sins. Words like

‘flipping’, ‘fricking’, ‘that sucks’, and even, ‘oh, my God’

are common place. Being ‘pissed off’ is only normal.

————————————————————–

May I suggest that the next time you are ‘flipping mad’ that

you just automatically substitute ‘procreating mad’.

May I suggest that the next time you are ‘fricking mad’ that

you just automatically substitute ‘love-making mad’.

May I suggest that the next time you say, ‘that’s sucks’, oh,

let’s just leave that one alone.

May I suggest that the next time you say, ‘Oh, my God!’ that

you just automatically substitute ‘well, isn’t that nice!’.

May I suggest that the next time you say, ‘shit’ that you

just automatically substitute ‘shoot’ and pray that they don’t.

May I suggest that the next time you say, ‘that’s pissing me off’

that you just automatically say, ‘I am mad and I have an

overactive bladder’.

May I suggest that another substitute for the word ‘f—‘ is

‘firetruck’. Don’t use the thesaurus; just learn some rhyming words.

—————————————————————-

May I suggest that you just shut off your TV and your radio

and just sit there for a while and think about it.

—————————————————————-

What in the world are they are feeding our minds?

And: Why do we keep tuned in to these channels that

are feeding our minds?

——————————————————————-

The more you think about some thing or the more you

hear it, the more it becomes a part of you.

—————————————————————-

On occasion, these words slip out. I would hope that God

would forgive us for an occasional slip. But, I suggest that

when ‘flipping’ and ‘fricking’ and ‘that sucks’ make it into our

churches that we stand up and shout, «Enough!»

—————————————————————–

Innocently, I invited Master of Disguise and Dana Carvey in to

our home for a little visit. We watched the movie and we

laughed so hard and so long and had so much fun! And-

then the movie was over.

—————————————————————-

From ‘idiot’, to ‘butthead’, to ‘fart’, to ‘what did you say?’,

our home became a movie that had walked off of the screen

and in to our home. My sweet little guy, only 4 years old,

had now become ‘Dana Carvey’ on Master of Disguise.

And, I deeply regret it. I still find Dana Carvey funny, but I

will watch ‘Master of Disguise’ in the middle of the night from

now on. I know that I will.
