Jesus Loves You 29 April 2021

Is a catch phrase of the sort of evangelical who tries to go out actively recruiting. Which is fine if you're already in that mindset. But if you aren't, it can have unfortunate implications.

…and He'll respect you in the morning.

…and this hurts Him more than it hurts you.

…but not as much as He loves crows, which may help explain next Tuesday.

…so why you gotta make Him so mad, baby?

…lightly fried in garlic butter.

…and this is for your own good.

…so He's going to play with you till you break.

    What that soupy song makes me think of, Mike, is how much I absolutely hated being expected to listen to people my own age singing something badly, when I was four and five and six.

    ... but the Pope has banned the pill.

    The corollary to this we often used was “he found Jesus...

    ...because Jesus didn’t run fast enough.”

    ...because Jesus wasn’t hiding very well.”

    …and said "you're It".
