1.  The Roman Catholic Church did not officially acknowledge that the Earth revolves around the sun until the mid 1990s.  Isn’t that just mind-boggling?

2.  Pastor Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS has conducted “over 40,089 peaceful demonstrations (to date) opposing the fag lifestyle of soul-damning, nation-destroying filth”.  What a prick.  He’s probably a closet fag himself.

3.  The Southern Baptist Convention asserts that “[a] wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ”.  Blah blah blah.

4. Latter-day prophets strongly discourage the tattooing of the body.  Those who disregard this counsel show a lack of respect for themselves and for God”.  Yeah, try getting away with that line of bullshit in your neighborhood biker bar.

5.  L. Ron Hubbard, the science-fiction author turned founder of Scientology, once said: “Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion.”  Well, at least, as scoundrels go, he’s honest.

6.  Once… there were these bunch of Muslims, and they, like, decided to hijack some airplanes and they, like, killed all these people and totally made a mess of downtown NYC, because they, like, thought they’d get some virgins and olives in heaven and shit like that.

7.  The Catholics believe that Jesus was born to a woman who had never engaged in sexual intercourse.  We seem to take this one for granted, but it still never ceases to astound me.

8.  If I drive a Mazda, does that make me a Zoroastrian?
