Theologians Respond to Discovery of Liquefied Mammon at the Gas Pump
On the heels of the groundbreaking discovery that automobile fuel is composed of Mm, or Mammon, theologians of the Catholic Academic Religious Minutiae Association (CARMA) immediately announced a forum to be held at RBCU this Saturday at 1pm, in Lourdes Hall auditorium.
In a public relations release, Bob Turner of RBCU announced "Six local theologians involved in CARMA will be presenting papers that attempt to delve into the ontological depths of the recent discovery of Mm and gasoline. People are encouraged to come and participate in the thoughtful examination of this juncture between faith and getting to work."
The papers announced are:
"'I wish I knew how to quit you!': Can't get to God in a Hummer"
"Igniting the Fires of Hell With Gasoline: Symbols, Society, and Sinfulness"
"What Happens When Sin Costs $3.00 a Gallon, and It Used to be Free?"
"Ethanol: The Not-so-innocent Mixture of the Earth and Evil"
"Hybrids: Or, 'the lukewarm I will spit out of my mouth'"
"'My yoke is easy, my burden light' and the Chemical Weight of Mm"
The public is encouraged to attend by walking.
