We need to keep churches around if only for the humor

But no fair laughing. That would be rude...

Anyone can beat around the bush. But unless you have permission from the bush, you probably shouldn't.

Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

The omniscient deity, who already knew that his Palestinian-born son would be a long-haired white man, sent the yet unborn/unconceived  spirit[1] of this future son/self, to give the message of paternity to an alien pagan? 

No wonder folks have to go to school for this theology stuff.  It is pretty complicated.

The church had to get involved. Fictional folks need to stick together.

Gold! I really needed that laugh, cheers. :D
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
