Mormons at my door.

Today I had some Mormon Missionaries at my door. Now I was nice. lol Usually when the new Pastor for the church up the street comes around I say stuff like "Can't talk right now I'm about to sacrifice a chicken to the oven gods" lol But My dad was a Mormon Missionary when he was younger and I grew up a Mormon, I'm not one anymore but when I was a kid I went Primary school at the church. So when they asked me if they could come in and talk about Christ, I nicely but emphatically said I wasn't religious and didn't want to talk right now. I found out that my MOTHER sent the to my place. She has been having bible study every week and she didn't tell me. She really should have known better. They wouldn't take a hint and friggin leave. I finally had to say that I did my time in church and wouldn't be going back. The one guy had the nerve to ask me if I wanted to go to hell. I looked at him and said " Well maybe at least I won't have you people bothering me there" and then I closed the door. He pissed me off.

To me religion is a boring subject, especially when your not interested. Why is religion so boring? I don't know but it is, at least to me. I can think of several things less boring , the first being, watching grass grow. I would much rather spend my Sundays at the movie theatre watching a good movie. At least at the theatre I can choose what to worship that day depending on what mood I am in at the time. Do I feel like...Thrillers, Action, Slasher, drama, Horror, Aliens, Romance...ect..Different genres just as the different denominations invite a more active audience participation. That feeling of total euphoria and aew in the presence of a great film is something very few people in church are likely to feel these days. We get from film what we don't get from church or anywhere else..You can sit in your seat and be transported back in time, to another world, watching demons emerge from the walls or watch as life begins anew.


  1. The last time I stepped into a church, over ten years ago, I cleaned the carpet. The last time i actually went to church was in 1990 when I lived with my brother and his family was real religious and their kids were real young then and wouldn't understand not wanting to go to church. So, I would go along and fall asleep setting there. Both of my brothers are preachers now and have their own churches. One in Massachusettes, and one in New Jersey.

    My aunt said that to keep things going I shoule either become one or marry one. But if I became one then I don't think it would go over to well when my first sermon would be "you're all going to burn in hell.....amen" and leave the room. Or something like that.

    Have you ever heard George Carlin's bit on religion? On how its the biggest scam because they expect you to believe there is this all powerful, all knowing, invisible man that lives in the clouds. And he is always in need of money. And if you don't follow his rules, he has a place where you'll burn for all eternity, but he loves you.

    When I was a kid I used to go to church. Never thought much about it. When I was around 8 or 10 my mother said i didn't have to go back if I didn't want too, so I didn't.

  2. I love George carlin's comedy. I watched him last month on HBO, it was hilarious. I just have never been into going to church, not for me.

  3. My grandpa was a baptist minister, I went to chucrch with him a few times when i was really small, one time he was sooo drunk when he started preaching his false teeth fell out onto the floor and he looked down and said .."It's a sign"..then walked down picked up his teeth and promply stuck them back in his mouth. I never did figure out what the sign
