This is a pamphlet on the counter at my corner gas station. It's all red and firey with HELL written all scary-like, and a picture of the surface of freaking SUN.
I was actually going to type up the entirity of the pamphlet's contents so you guys could have the opportunity to be both amused and disturbed as I was, but a quick search let me find the exact text on-line. Sweet!
I love how these doofuses actually have the skinny on not only Satan's estate, but the schedule of torment.
It just boggles the mind that these fuckers think THIS is the way to draw people in and sell them on an "all-loving" god. Hillarious in SO many ways!
Here's a little sample...DAY 3
At least you think it's Day 3. It seems like it has already been forever. You've not been able to sleep.
You still can't believe you're here. Where are the friends you thought you would see? The knowledge that they would be here too had brought you some comfort in your lifetime. Where is the fun you thought you would have? It isn't at all like what you were led to believe.
You stumble upon a group of others. You pour out a litany of questions. As they open their mouths, no words come out ... only the sounds of weeping and wailing. Some in the group don't even try to respond. They gnash their teeth, as if in some invisible pain.
You wonder when this nightmare will end. You wonder why somebody can't make it stop ... and it's only Day 3.
Seriously though, I'm not the only one who fucking *hates* the term "gnashing of teeth" and it's derivitives, am I? It's always seemed cartoonish to me. Yosemite Sam gnashes his teeth. Mostly though, it's just such a blatent piece of propaganda terminology. NOWHERE else do you hear that term except from Christians or ex-Christians who haven't managed to quite drop it from their vocabulary yet.
Oh, and I also find it quite comical, the mental image of someone mouthing words and hearing dubbed-in wailing and weeping and whatever... Like something from Kung Pow: Enter the Fist lol.
<mouth says "I will avenge my clan's undesired riotous dysfunction!">
<what comes out "WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH">
Anyway. Thoughts? Comments? Christians, if your space genie is so beautiful and pure and all good all the time and just the loveiest deity to ever wuv you big huggy bunches... How the hell do you justify it allowing some place like this to exist? If all things in the universe come from your god, then this too, came from your god. And since this place is eviler than the evilest evil, and it came from your god, how the hell do you trick yourself into believing that your god doesn't have some massive resoivoirs of evil in it?
Exactly how many times DO you have to smash yourself in the head with a hammer before you manage to convince yourself that everything is just peachy?
Anyway. Disgusting stuff. Christians are gross.
edit: Forgot to mention... The gas station is owned and operated by... Well, I don't know if they're all Mid-Easters or East Indians or what... But I'm pretty damn sure none of them are Christian. Got names like Wadeed and Sikraf. So how did those pamphlets get there? Do the guys that run the place know about it? I'm going to say something about it next time I'm in there. They all know me since I stop by every day for smokes and iced tea/chockida milks, so maybe I can convince them that it's... You know... Retarded n' stuff.
