Can God Send Snakes and Clowns in the Jelly Age to Smite Us?

"God's control panel"

p.s. don't like the AIDS button--that's not something to joke about.

HT for the comic: The Zeray Gazette.

Well, I think that it's a bit funny in that it makes fun of the fundamentalist blowhards who say that god smote gays with AIDS as punishment.

But I can see how one might take up a different interpretation.

Honestly the one I'm more offended by is having "Pregnant" listed with punishments.

Reminds me of an old FarSide comic with God pressing the "Smite" button as a piano falls on an unsuspecting subject. (Also, don't like the "Pregnant" button, and aren't "Extinction" & "Armageddon" synonymous?

Why does God only have three fingers?

I love that "men" is an option on the rain dial.

I agree with the AIDS and 'Pregnant' button comments -- - - but I thought the 'Helium-sounding Voice' button, crossed out with DO NOT USE was hilarious!

3 fingers because God is Trinity...

John said...

On The Simpsons, God is always portrayed as having four fingers, whereas humans have three.

I guess we lost the fourth one during the Fall.

I don't know if it makes the pregnancy button less offensive, but I believe it is a reference to the Incarnation rather than pregnancy being a punishment. But I'm curious about this jelly age...it'd be a good time for the peanut industry probably.

Love the "smite" button. It belongs to Mary, Mother of God.

Extinction and Armageddon are not the same. Usually extinction refers to one particular species. Armageddon is the whole planet, possibly the whole universe.
