Jess ([livejournal.com profile] phosphodae) linked to a funny/disturbing fundamentalist Christian teaching site in a recent entry...lots of stuff about the earth being less than 10,000 years old, the T-Rex on Noah's Ark, Nabu the (assumed Hindu) elephant who's "lost count" of his gods, Hopsiah the Kanga-Jew, etc. I followed links to what is quite possibly the most hilarious rant against infant baptism I've ever read. Granted, I haven't read many, but it is a RAP to the beat of "Baby Got Back"! It's so funny that I don't even feel annoyed with the purpose of the site--I was baptised as a baby and see it more as a symbol. I'm pretty sure my parents weren't thinking, "Hey, maybe we can save our daughter from hell by baptising her before she understands what's going on! Bwahahhawahhahaaa!!!!" And anyway, that's not the point.

The point is, you don't want to miss "Baby Got Baptism"! You should also read the preface to the lyrics, under the heading "Paedobaptism is 'wack'". "Do not be put off by the unusual spelling; it is part of the hip-hop vernacular."

...the hell of computer science turned into a slightly toasty limbo, and it took less than an hour-and-a-half. And the LLC dinner/reflection presentation was delicious and meaningful, with many fantastic projects presented. It was nice to be in the house of settled-down people, eating real food and talking. Wilson Hall had midnight cookies at 11:15 p.m. Cole, Evelyn, Maureen, Dan, and I became appliances. Sadly, Evelyn the Blender shut down.

It is all real! Real as in, I can hear taste touch smell see it.

And even that which is not real, or not yet real, has a carved-out home in my mind.
