Worthy cause of the day (while I am at it): “Ask Obama to Support the World's Poorest People”.
Late breaking news relevant to Divine Misconceptions which I feel compelled to share: “Ahmadinejad says Jesus would be on his side”: For once Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tells the truth, though it is most certainly not what the title of the article is. As it is written:
"If Christ were on Earth today, undoubtedly he would stand with the people in opposition to bullying, ill-tempered and expansionist powers," said Ahmadinejad in the message, according to Agence France Presse. "If Christ were on Earth today, undoubtedly he would hoist the banner of justice and love for humanity to oppose warmongers, occupiers, terrorists and bullies the world over."Now, which states are the ones actually fulfilling his conditions? Which states bully everyone else on the planet? Which states are ill-tempered? Which states are trying to expand its influence beyond its own borders and expand their own borders? Which states act as warmongers, inciting people to commit genocide? Which states occupy territory promised to another people? Which states are responsible for a huge fraction of terrorism on this planet? Thank you, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for admitting that most of the Islamic states, including your own, would be opposed by Jesus of Nazareth. You probably did not intend to say this, but you put your foot in your mouth, as you have done many times before, and you have no one to blame but yourself if people laugh at you for condemning yourself.
Enjoy and share the weirdness.
