"And the greatest arrogance of all, 'save the planet'. What? Are these fucking people kidding me? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves yet!"
"Here's another question I have. How come when it's us, it's an abortion, and when it's a chicken, it's an omelette?"
"But you know, the longer you listen to this abortion debate, the more you hear this phrase 'sanctity of life'. You've heard that. Sanctity of life. You believe in it? Personally, I think it's a bunch of shit."
"Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Shit."
What an apt time to quote the above, now that everyone's favourite pastor and his four faithful friends have been accused of swindling a holy 50 million dollars. But hey, it's not a matter for us to judge; the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. And after all, a very reliable source, another pastor of City Harvest Church (CHC), insisted that "the church did not suffer any financial loss and no one made personal profit from the transactions". As a pastor, I'm sure he follows something called the Ten Commandments, one which reads "thou shalt not bear false witness". A simple summary would be that it more or less prohibits lying, and someone of his position ought to more or less stick to it and we being such lovely nice people should have faith in the people of faith and faithfully assume they faithfully follow their faith by faithfully never lying.
