The inability to understand satire indicates a low level of verbal intelligence and a high level of dogmatism. Gruner, Charles R. The Game of Humor: A Comprehensive Theory of Why We Laugh. New Brunswick, N.J.: Transaction, 1997, p. 89.
Six years ago I closed down my blog, http://www.screenshots.com/godisajoke.com/
to write my book, Why God Is a Joke: Biblical Ridicule of the Circumcision Covenant . On my new website, http://whygodisajoke.com/
, I’ll be posting one new chapter each week for forty-five weeks.
My book argues the J source of the Pentateuch mocked God’s circumcision covenant, the homoerotic covenant that feminized the men of Israel whom God took as his wife.
J’s Sodom and Gomorrah parable, for example, conveys God’s rage at the men who mocked his circumcision covenant.
I hope you will visit and read and pass the word on. As blasphemers, you and I are carrying on the J tradition of mocking God.
