Go Flock Yourself

Everything I say is true because I represent the Big Guy. (Circular logic.) See? I'm even wearing the collar of obedience, just like Captain Kirk on Triskelion.

I’m in such a good mood, I’ve decided to extend a poopy hand of brotherly love to my fellow child of God, Pastor Dennis Terry.

When he said that people who don’t follow Jesus Christ should GET OUT!!! of America, because only people like himself really love this country, he had the right message, but due to the blessed brain limitations that God endowed him with, he merely lacked the right words.

On the other hand, if there really is a God, you still have to grapple with the fundamental question: What is it he/she wants us to do? Who among us humans really has the corner on that sort of truth?
