Some wise guy started Facebook and Twitter pages under the name of “God” and has been dispensing wisdom and humor for a while now. But this latest is the best.
“God” began a campaign to buy billboards in the hometown of Westboro Baptist Church (those bigots who hold up “God Hates Fags” signs) which says “God loves gays.”
It’s still going on, so more billboards may be raised. You can donate here.
Why should the right always get to decide what God says, after all? The thing that makes the tweets extra special is that they are that they are not mean-spirited or anti-religious at all. You could easily imagine God saying these things. (Well, except for the profanity. Well, maybe the Old Testament God.) After Robin Williams’ suicide, “God” spent a lot of time counseling people to get help for depression and otherwise has actually made some very caring posts. Hm, maybe it is God after all.
So let’s share in some of “God’s” recent tweets both funny and insightful:
Life is fair because it’s unfair for everyone.
I had nothing to do with the cure for ebola. You should thank the doctors and scientists for that.
Dear Humans: This is your weekly reminder. Stop killing each other! Please and thank you – God
I challenge you all to the “don’t be a douche” challenge! Do you accept?
If all religions advocate peace, then why aren’t their extremists extremely peaceful?
Dear Terrorists: There are no virgins waiting for you in Heaven. None. Take care – God
…and one I definitely agree with:
You don’t have to be religious to be a good person.
