Thor vs Jesus

Offensive, but funny. The number of Thor worshipers has declined pretty dramatically in the last 900 years, so there! Thor has a day of the week, in a bunch of languages, while Jesus only gets his title in (domingo),so there!

I wonder why the fundies have never made an issue that 5 days of the week are named for pagan gods? It would be fun to watch them tilt at that windmill!

Maybe they don't make an issue of it because it's not an issue.
Looks like Luke just tilted at a windmill himself. LOL

"Maybe they don't make an issue of it because it's not an issue."

When has that ever stopped the right wing in the past? I think it's a good point that our nation's Christian heritage is being threatened by days of the week being named after heathen socialist false gods. But my guess is that the the cynical manipulators of the foolish fundamentalists are saving that one for when defending the life of zygotes and mentioning god when pledging allegence to a symbol have either lost their power to motivate morons or enough people have figured out the irony inherent in them.

Memphisto, you had to go off topic in order to blast the fundamentalists. Tsk.

And that second sentence, about heathen socialist false gods, is a doozie!

Luke said...

Hey, the days of the week thing was a joke! Although, the humor does rest on plausibility. If some preacher carried on about it on the talk AM station down the road on April 1st, I'm sure a statistically significant percentage of the listeners would take it seriously.

Ronaldo, I guess it's just not possible to do satire anymore.

Off topic? Now THAT'S funny.

LOL, I guess you're right, Luke!
