In Which Atheists Are Unbeleivably Funny

So much for Guffy's angels:

For one hot August night, the St. Paul Saints, a Minnesota minor league baseball team, will become the “Mr. Paul Aints” in a game sponsored by a local atheist group.  Continue ...

Now, I have a decentish sense of humor.  You may not think I'm very funny; but that fact in and of itself probably means that I find more things funny than you do.  (A catholic *cough* sense of humor, they used to call this.)  But I'm trying to imagine how things would have gone if the Jehovah's Witnesses had decided to mock John Calvin during their night of sponsorship.  Or ... well, you play the game yourself.  If atheists want to be treated just like members of other religions, then maybe they should be held up to the same standards as religious people are.  No cartoons of Mohammed.  No references to a certain political candidates magical underclothing.  And no flying saucer analogies, K?

Is that really asking so much?


  1. I will be surprised if they get away with this.

  2. I see what you did, there...

    There's something very Chestertonian about all this, how one can't stop thinking about exactly what one must not think about. If it weren't so terribly sad,... well, you know. Which reminds me that I really should finish reading The Ball and the Cross.

    1. Yes, you should. Everyone should!
