Die, heretic!

It’s a great day. Coffee was already made when I got up, Tesla announced record earnings so my stake in them recovered, and Oscar Tshiebwe is still not going pro.

And speaking of Tesla, when Elon Musk isn’t amusing himself with his weird Twitter acquisition, one of his other companies, StarLink, is showing the US military how modern electronic warfare (EW) can be conducted. And helping Ukraine in their war efforts. My first job involved lots of EW technology, and with the tech tools available today, I bet it’s a fun, crazy job.

My religious friends and family will hate this (sorry Mike), but this little joke illustrates my point that religion can be very, very divisive.

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, “Don’t do it!” He said, “Nobody loves me.” I said, “God loves you. Do you believe in God?”

He said, “Yes.” I said, “Are you a Christian or a Jew?” He said, “A Christian.” I said, “Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?” He said, “Protestant.” I said, “Me, too! What franchise?” He said, “Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?” He said, “Northern Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?”

He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region.” I said, “Me, too!”

Northern Conservative†Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912.” I said, “Die, heretic!” and pushed him over.
