Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 4: $1750)

Center for Inquiry’s BLASPHEMY CONTEST

You’ve got to wonder what an organization that touts itself for critical thinking is thinking when it sponsors a BLASPHEMY CONTEST:

Maybe Christians should submit Psalm 14:1 or Romans 1:20, but since Darwin is their god a few word's of Darwin's less than divine attributes would suffice. Or maybe just a few words on blasphemy.

Here is my submission:

Title: My Submission for Your Dumb Contest

Dear Center For (bigoted) Inquiry:

Here is my submission that I think we can all agree on:

"Presumption and boastfulness are causes of blasphemy. Avarice and self-esteem are causes of cruelty and hypocrisy." - St. Kosmas Aitolos

I also like:

"Unspeakable blasphemy is the child of dreadful pride." - St. John of the Ladder


"May your blasphemy fall upon your own head." - St. Niketas Stethatos

I'm looking forward to my T-Shirt and mug. :-)
