Dear Strange Bedfellows,

Who would’ve guessed that plucking my monobrow would enable me to be taken seriously as a broadway makeup artist?! Nonetheless, while plucking away indiscriminately, I found a copy of the 54th ImaginaryFriendsShow.com Podcast… how do you like them apples?

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road? A: To avoid hearing about the debt ceiling crisis. Yeah, I went there! Rudy Rudell and I discuss testing anal dilation for gay priests (seriously), Rick Perry,  Catholics tired of Catholicism and skeptical problems in skeptic town.

Allah; God: Overlord of the Paedophiles

I weighed in on a debate running hot in one of the conference rooms near my office today. Apparently there are a number of Christians who have had their faith shaken by the recent spate of paedophilia in various Christian churches.

When I say ‘various Christian churches’, we are talking Protestant and Catholic churches.

The debate it self was between a Baptist and a Catholic. The nosy and opinionated Baptist (they’re all nosy and opinionated) was criticising the guilt-ridden and persecuted Catholic (they’re all guilt-ridden and persecuted) over the fact that the Pope, Benedict XVI, Joseph Ratzinger, or as I call him, J-Ratz, has not admitted any liability and has not accepted any responsibility for abuse cases that he CLEARLY had a hand in.

As the workplace’s “Token-Ecumenical-Atheist”, I felt the need to point out that despite the different denomination, they both believe in the same God. Despite the difference in their respective dogma; despite the religious figureheads they support or follow; if there truly were such a thing as God, then he should have intervened.

“But what of the alleged ‘Free Will’”, quipped the apologetic Baptist.
To which I replied, “where is God?”
They both agreed, “all around us”.

“Well then”, I began, “if God is omnipresent, then He is in the room while a child is being raped by his priests, and yet he does not provide comfort, only absence.

“If God is omnipotent, then he has the power to stop the paedophile priests, but does not so much as lift an ethereal finger.

“If God is omniscient, then He knows that it has happened more than once.”

Wake up and smell the bullshit!

Seriously.

Belief has never stopped a murderer from murdering, a paedophile from raping or a psychopath from torturing, because there is always forgiveness, penitence, or ‘accepting JC as your personal lord and savior’.

Regardless which religion you have chosen to worship under, people within your religion do and have previously committed countless vile, deplorable and abhorrent acts, and your respective God/s have done nothing!

God, Allah, Yahweh, El, Odin, whoever; they’re powerless or gutless.

Clerics and priests claim to speak for God and direct their followers hither and thither aimlessly.

I speak for your God; I speak for Allah; I speak for all of them. They’re saying, “I don’t exist. Dissolve the religious institutions and be good for goodness sake!”

Episode 48 – No Silly Questions, Just Silly People!


Dear Bird Fancier Fanciers (incidentally, a pigeon fancier breeds pigeons… breeds them… yeah, let that mull over in your brain),

While on my weekly visit to the “confirmed bachelor” massage parlour, I discovered that the ImaginaryFriendsShow.com Podcast has just released episode 48… or something.

More importantly:

Virgo: It’s important in life to know where you’ve come from and where you want to go… because the slightest deviation in your alibi will make the police suspicious.

Pisces: Seing as though the one and only tallent you posses is being able to recall and hum the theme songs to 80s cartoons, can you hum ‘Astroboy’ for me, I can’t remember how it goes?

This week we talk Jesus, boobs, Jesus’ boobs and Jake’s boobs. Also, Oprah, Deepak Chopra’s secret, the rejection of secularism in Bangladesh and a fine worth 3 years wages in Nepal for leaving your religion. Also, Jesus’ boobs.

Episode 45 – Hey there sexy, what are you doing later?

Dear Colonauts,

Having drunk more than half of the wine in Australia’s bible-belt, we’ve returned to open a can of whoop-ass on some generally unsavoury stuff.

As for the important stuff:

Taurus: A spectacularly allergic reaction to shellfish this week, sees you breaking out in hives after watching an episode of Spongebob Squarepants.

Scorpio: It’s never too late to say you’re sorry… even if it means shouting it through a coffin.

In this episode, we talk Osama, The Vatican’s new anti-child-rape guidelines, the seven deadly sins and then some other stuff.

Episode 42 – This Chocolate Zombe Jesus is Making Me Thirsty!

Dear Fallopian Tube Survivalists,

What do you get when you cross an Easter bunny  who believes that Chocolate is the true meaning of Easter and a Jesus, who thinks that they’re the true meaning of Easter? You get world war 3… and a great intro to another episode of the ImaginaryFriendsShow.com Podcast.

If anyone can, the Vatican can… and the Aust. Christian Lobby can too.. and will.. and did. We also talk Obama the Panda, Aliens and the pagan origin of Easter!
