It would be funnier if it wasn’t so fucking tragic, but you can always get a laugh when the Christian bigwigs come out with their Easter messages. My favourite so far this year is this one from Anthony Fisher, the new Archbishop of Parramatta (NSW, Australia):
”Last century we tried godlessness on a grand scale and the effects were devastating,” he said.
”Nazism, Stalinism, Pol-Pottery, mass murder and broken relationships: all promoted by state-imposed atheism or culture-insinuated secularism.”
As opposed to the great successes of previous, godfull centuries like, say, The Crusades? The Inquisition? The Witch Hunts? Or even recent years with those not falling to godlessness, leading to suicide bombers, murder of doctors and “honour killings” of women among many, many others?
Sure, Anthony Fisher – it’s the last century of “godlessness” that was devastating.
What a fuckwit.
There’ll be more, I’m sure, but we’ve started well this year.
