Please, Go Ahead

Don't
drink alcohol!

You
are not
an adult!

I've
heard
this
again and again

so
the
other day
when
I
turned 20

I
drank beer

and

it
tasted terrible

I'm
never
going to drink
again

Wedding Bells

I'm
too stupid
to
understand

all the
pro and con
arguments

on the
gay marriage
issue
so

Congratulations!

and

May
you have
lots of children!

What's Playing?

Mel Gibson's
The Passion of the Christ

has
Christians
flocking
to see
the
movie

talking
discussing

all
searching
for the
truth






although
not a word
is said

about
The Ascension

Now


if you want
the answer to that one

please go see
Superman

Simon Says

the
banning
of the
cross
in
France

is
understandable

as
it is
an instrument
of
execution







Imagine
if

gallows
and
guillotines

were allowed
to be
displayed
in
public places
he asks





Now
all
of you
who
agree with
Simon

please
put
your hands

up
in the air

Reward

Only
a man
(or
woman)

who
does not
believe
in God

can be
religious

All
others

are
business
men
(or
women)

Did He ...?

Jennifer
says
President Clinton
is
lying

He
knows
he did it

and
I do

and
so
does
God!


Was
God
there?

I
wonder

What
was
He
doing
there?

Is
He
a voyeur?



Did
He
enjoy it

as
much
as

Jennifer
and
Clinton?

Oh
Q's
and Q's
and
more Q's ...

20

Too Much
to Swallow

some
men
are

into
men

some
women
are

into
women

some
men
and
women
are

into
animals

and
some men
and
women
are

into
vegetables

I
accept
it all

but
please
don't
tell me

it
is
normal

Born Again

We
are born
as human beings

and
made into
Christians
Mohammedans
Jews
and so on

It's time
to be
born again

as
human beings

Neither Latin
nor Sanskrit

At
a recent
scholarly
get together

when
the topic
got to
religious experience

a
scholar
said to me

If
you can't
read
the
Chinese characters


it is
no use

you
wouldn't
understand

But
surely
he could
have explained
the
meaning
of the
characters

I
thought
to myself

I did
not say
anything
at the time

Now
weeks later
I ponder

What
if
I could
have been able
to read
and
understand
the
meaning
of the
characters ...?


Would
it mean
I
have
also
understood

the
religious
experience?

A
blind man
can
speak
of light

He
can
even read
about it

I
don't know
if
you
can read
braille
or not

but
please
tell me

does
the
blind man
know

what
he is
talking about?

Wow!

Popo
my
great
computer

is
able
to read

all the
Chinese
characters

of
ancient
Buddhist
scriptures





and
so

Popo

has
now
reached
enlightenment

Hurrah!
