To: a fool in paradise

RE: As he’s walking into church (in the Simpsons’ movie) “Relax, those pious morons are too busy talking to their phony-baloney god.”

I saw one episode where Homer actually repented and had the chance to speak to God.

Homer: “Lord, can you tell me what the meaning of life is?”

God: “You’ll know it all when you die”

Homer: “Aww, ‘cmon, why can’t I know now?”

God : “You can’t even wait six months?”

Homer IS different than the deceiver in chief. Homer is NOT a Unitarian.

“Well, not the Unitarians. If that’s the one true faith, I’ll eat my hat”

Ak: “If the Lord is all-powerful, why does He care...”

2004 Interview: Obama Talks about Jesus, Heaven and Sin June 3, 2008

GG: Who’s Jesus to you?

OBAMA: Right. Jesus is a historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher. And he’s also a wonderful teacher. I think it’s important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.

GG: The conversation stopper, when you say you’re a Christian and leave it at that.

OBAMA: Where do you move forward with that? This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.

GG: You don’t believe that?

OBAMA: I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.
