The great Nye Cooper consistently posts the best Facebook status updates, but the following one has to be one of my favorites. Keep in mind, this comes on the heels of the most recent South Park episode, where, rhetorically stating his consent to things, Cartman would respond: “Do I? Does the Pope help pedophiles cover up their crimes?” and the like. It also follows an office convo this morning with my friend David about how too many fundamentalists don’t really understand bible stories at all.
So, without further ado, Nye Cooper’s summary of Christian orthodoxy. Happy Easter evening everyone!
[I] would like to remind everyone of the true meaning of Easter: Jesus was crucified by the Easter Bunny and then three days later they went to see him and he was gone, but he’d left a basket for them full of colored eggs and plastic grass. Then he returned to heaven and made it rain down jelly beans and chocolate rabbits so we would remember him. Amen
