Me: Like...Creed.

Me: He's like, "Really, Scott Stapp? Really? This is what we're doing now?"
Me: Only in Aramaic or whatever.
MADELINE: i say that all the time
MADELINE: jesus is totally like OH MY GOD I AM GOING TO MY ROOM UNTIL THESE BITCHES CALM DOWN
MADELINE: and God is like, Jesus? Honey? Come out.
Me: And he's like, "DAD. DAD. I cannot deal with these people, okay? I mean, at least you can smite them. I'm just sitting up here chilling and wishing I could have a chocolate Easter egg."
MADELINE: and God's like, honey. come on.
Me: and eventually, God has to go get Mary
Me: and Mary's like, "He's your son."
Me: and God's all, "Mary, please. Not now. Your son needs you."
MADELINE: LOL
MADELINE: And Mary's all, you know, I try and I try, but let me just tell you this: when he lived with me, he was not like this.

:: Also from Fizzy, a bawdier version of Barnacle Bill.
:: A quote from [info]polyanarch posted by [info]torasama in [info]metaquotes:

Christianity: The belief that life and all of the universe is a gift from an imaginary magic spirit who lives in space and is angry at all humans because a woman he made of spare ribs was talked into eating the fruit from a magic tree by a talking snake. This is the same magic spirit who later came down and impregnated a virgin so he could have a son who would be killed and turned into a zombie. This was so that people could eat the meat and drink the blood from his zombie body and be saved from the stigma of what that rib-woman did by eating the magic fruit that made the magic spirit mad in the first place. Only by eating this magic zombie flesh and blood, and telepathically pledging their lives to him, can the descendants of the spare-rib woman be forgiven and follow his son whom he sent to save them from himself.

:: Okay, for the rest of this one I'll just link to the [info]metaquotes post. :P
:: This bit of Richard Dawkins awesome from [info]atheism. :)

:: An excellent bit on friending and LJ by [info]skreidle, found at [info]fragbert:

It occurs to me that you may just want to lay out some ground rules...about how this LJ is for you first, audience second; that there will be some days you don't post, and that's just life, please don't email/comment/txt about the lack o' dailypost; to keep the drama out; and that when you boil it down, listing someone as a "friend" on LJ only means two things: 1) 'I currently enjoy reading what you write', and 2) 'I'm allowing you to see my Friends-Only posts.' Anything beyond that is icing."
