The media does a fine job of whipping us into a righteous frenzy over the threat of Islamic fundamentalism but the Christians – or some lost soul’s personal interpretation of Christianity – are giving them a close run for their money.

The following message was posted through my letterbox on a blank sheet of paper the other night. Nice to see religious intolerance and the burning of the heretics is alive and well in the cyber age:

Repent of your sins. Repent of our wicked ways. repent of your evil deeds. Repent of your lustful ways. repent of your sexual immoralities. Repent of your laziness. Repent of your evil nature. Repent of your lying ways. repent of being corrupted in the heart. Repent of idolizing (Matt Goss?) Repent of judging others. Repent of cheating god. Repent of not being righteous. Repent of racism. Repent of hatred. repent of loving yourself too much. Repent of not loving Jesus. (Jesus will say to many Christians: “Go away. I never knew you.”).

Not exactly a laugh a minute, are they? Might as jump in the boneyard hole and pull the lid over myself now. Jim Jones here we come.

 

‘Fight one more round. When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the center of the ring, fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish that your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round – remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.’

James L. Corbett
