Is religion 'preposterous'? Yes, and often on purpose

I found it intriguing that Atlantic writer McKay Coppins, in this article about Mormonism (Coppins is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), used the term "preposterous" as a description of some Mormon beliefs. Coppins dug...

^^^Oh, he'll be here soon as will be the guy who doesn't have a scroll bar and complains Bill writes posts he's forced to read.

I want to read the Rev. Stone's response. It's always interesting!

Of course religion is preposterous. Why else would would all 1.8 billion Muslims in the world suck goat dick? Allah sucks goat and all Muslims suck goat dick.

Sorry, Billy-boi, I had to get out into my Arctic like back yard and clear the snow off gawd's poor 4.5 billion year old bald rock head. He thanked me, saying I could pray for something nice and maybe he would come through. He says he likes dem Mormons, cause he likes how dem wives respect their mensfolks and all. He says if he could get outta my back yard, he'd go to Utah and get him some. I don't want to hurt your has-been Red star writer feelings, but he did say your are still and always full of shit. Again, but being a bishop, I'm obligated to tell the truth (if I ever hope to get an Escalade, like the "community fat revs). I'm officially inviting all of you to The Church of The Backyard Rock tomorrow. We have gathered thousands of unsold Red Star papers, and will make an early run for the Sunday issues nobody buys. We will have a huge bonfire to keep all warm. Gawd told me that if you come out in the cold and covid, he will reveal some of his mysterious ways, and also show you a video of the snake urging the (good lookin') chick Eve to eat his, strike his, I meant the, the apple. Gotta go, I'm having volunteers set up bleachers for what promises to be a wonderful Sunday. Oh, Joel Osteen will be a guest speaker on "How to fool folks to get them to buy him beautiful suits. And how they got him a hottie trophy wife.") Should be a winner day. Pray to our patron saint George Carlin for a great 2021.

You white folks are a bunch of heathens anyway.

^^^ Yup @5:00, that's why we Whites invented VooDoo, Santeria, Damballah, and have so many TV Fortunetellers we all follow.

Oh, and in White Religions, the word "reverend" is an adjective, not a Job Description.

Bill is a good writer but his conclusions in this post just shows me that he has a contempt for religion overall.

Bill is an atheist. Haven't you fools figured that out by now?

God purposely hides himself from humanity. Little is known at this time about God. If people want to learn a small sliver about God, the Bible is a good start. But most people wont read it. So God remains hidden to them. So I can't blame them for not believing in God - their eyes are closed. Most people spend more time on the toilet than seeking God. And God is not trying to "save everyone". Just those that seek him. The others won't ever see God. But its your choice.
