Are All Religious People Idiots?

Well, I haven’t met all of them, but

Kathryn Lehan, author of Save Yourself! The Plain Truth, had questions about God and couldn't get a straight answer so she wrote a book full of plain truths about God and how to radically transform your life with one simple prayer. She's not a pastor, a minister or a divinity student. She's just like you and me.
She sure is! Just like everyone else, whenever I have unanswered questions I just pull any old absurdity straight out of my ass and lovingly christen it “the plain truth.”

Here’s a shiny nugget of wisdom from Lehan’s irreproachable tome:

The first time I read the Pentateuch, I remember thinking how all they did back then was kill animals right and left, and I wondered how they had time to do anything else. Luckily God decided this wasn't working so well, particularly for the animals, or maybe the earth was running dangerously low on animals with all the sinning going on, so God stopped this practice. This may be what actually happened to bring about the extinction of the dinosaurs! We'll talk more about how and why animal sacrifice stopped in Chapter 4.
Right on, Kathryn! As written in Matthew 26:73, “Surely thou also art one of them, for thy speech betrayeth thee”!

This line: "Just like everyone else, whenever I have unanswered questions I just pull any old absurdity straight out of my ass and lovingly christen it “the plain truth.”" will have me laughing for a week.

For that line alone, I'm adding you to our blogroll, although I have a feeling I'll find even more fun stuff as I delve deeper into your blog.

Truly hilarious.
