This story tells us something about organized religions. They are controlled, they have rules, punishments, despotic leaders, they are so sure of themselves, because God has given them the “ONE TRUE RELIGION”. Non-believers should be destroyed. Hmm, remember the guy who said: “If you are not with us, you are against us”?
I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said “Stop! Don’t do it!”
“Well, there’s so much to live for!”
“Well… are you religious?”
He said yes.
I said, “Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?”
“Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant ?
“Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?”
“Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?”
“Baptist Church of God!”
“Me too! Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you reformed Baptist Church of God?”
“Reformed Baptist Church of God!”
“Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915?”
He said, “Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915!”
I said, “Die, heretic scum”, and pushed him off the bridge.
