Just in case we've run short of things that make us go, "Hmmm..."

Jesus is back, and better than ever. Stop by Houston and say hi. Get a tattoo, and be a follower.

I didn't see Houston mentioned in that story of nuclear fallout.

Also missing, I think, was reference to Jesus. Unless in my own out-of-touchness with the world, I've simply not clued in that 'Jesus=Radioactive fallout' or somthing...

It's fixed. That's what happens when you're multitasking and not checking your work carefully. My apologies for the error and confusion.

A possible bumpersticker for his flock comes to mind...."My delusion can beat up your delusion".

I wonder...do you think other evangelists, while thinking of the so-called 'New jesus', are saying, "D'oh!....why didn't I make that claim first?"
What religious twattle will next week bring? yawn..........

"We are all connected; to each other biologically, to the earth chemically, to the rest of the universe atomically."

I thought the same thing. All those televangelists thinking they missed out on a golden opportunity.

Course, the jealous tele-shitheels will hammer away on him to no end. There could be a silver lining in all of this fanatical tattooing....I predict some reporter dogging him will publish a photo of the 'New jesus' leaving a Motel 666 with none-other than a modern day working girl Mary Magdalene.

To mine a quote:
quote:
"The same spirit that was in Jesus of Nazareth, and the same spirit is in me. He came to me. He [integrated] with my person in 1973." de Jesus says this happened when two angels came to him in a vision, and while he admits there's no real way for him to prove that he's Christ, he says his followers aren't asking for proof.


Not an unusual start for a cult. At the moment, this one seems relatively harmless, but that might not last. It might die a natural death, as most do, but there's no guarentee -- the perfidious Moonies and Scientologists come to mind.

Ultimatly, the esteemed Joe o'Jesus will die, either of natural causes or perhaps be wiped by some religious whacko from a more mainstream cult, and someone else will take over -- that's way too much influence (and gelt) to leave unattended. Meanwhile, I'd bet that he's coming out of this a very wealthy man, likely tax-free.

True Believers(tm) are funny folk.....

Claiming to be the antechrist and planning to be the head of a one world government some day is pretty interesting.

This makes me think of a quote I found in the conservapedia, from C. S. Lewis, giving one of his dumber reasons for believing in Christianity: "It has just that queer twist about it that real things have."
