The sad thing is, that IS one of the more inclusive churches.

The thing is, he's right. You should have seen her eat those biscuits. She ate them like a total bitch.

Not a dupe?

Not that I could find? Might be wrong

Innocent Bystander
Couldn't find it either although I have vivid recollections of seeing this here. Oh well. Have some stars.

The McK
It was the middle one in a clip that had all three "horrible people who are still inexplicably..." sketches.

Dupe, part of a larger sketch. Horrible people, or something like that. The schtick is that two people who are unassuming and polite but cheerfully misinformed encounter someone who is biting about exposing how little stuff they know. One was a waiter, one was a vicar, and one was a clothing salesman.

I think.

I'd consider converting to Christianity if there was a church like this in real life.

American Episcopalians are close, as long as you're comfortable with A LOT of Freemasons.

Hay Belly
No, they aren't at all you don't know what you're talking about. Episcopalians are the nicest least religious religious people you'll ever meet.

Where did you go to church? Was it Episcopalian?

I think not. I think not.

Anaxagoras
There are two factions within the American Episcopalian church; one is conservative and pretty much like the vicar depicted in this sketch. The other is fairly liberal and just as you describe.

Before you start denigrating somebody else's expertise in a field, you would be wise to make sure you aren't just as ignorant.

Billy the Poet
Pretty much nails it.

As an atheist, I'm totally on the vicar's side here.

Yahweh isn't your cheery puppet to agree with you when you can't otherwise justify an opinion, then change his mind when you do. He's either a tyrannical badass motherfucker, or a fictional tyrannical badass motherfucker.

After the Old Testiment he really mellows out. It's like he has gone through his angry young man phase.

IrishWhiskey
Except for the parts in the NT where he promises to destroy free will and end all life on earth, sends bears to maul and devour innocent children, continues to endorse slavery, and changes the punishment for non-belief of himself from death to an infinite torture for infinite length, even for those who haven't heard of him.

He has other people speak for him (including those who wrote the gospels centuries after his kid died and contradict recorded history) and they tend to reinforce more post-Bronze age moral norms, but he himself doesn't get any mellower. I mean, he brutally killed himself as a human sacrifice to himself so that he could lay a guilt trip on humanity, so that he'd lift a curse he placed on all innocent babies ever, because he once created a talking snake and used it to tell the truth to a woman who'd act again his own lies without being physically able to understand the consequences. Even though he created the system with full knowledge of how it'd turn out, and that he'd need to do tons of course-correcting measured in human bloodshed.

Yahweh makes sense if he's weak, evil, or his rationality and logic is so alien as to be to us appear insane. Anything else is wishful thinking.

IrishWhiskey
That may have been more information than the response called for.

Stars for Irishwhiskey

TheOtherCapnS
Bravo, IW. A rant worthy of Mitchell himself.

MC Scared of Bees
Late to the party, but throwing stars at IrishWhiskey.
