Quote of the Day


"I'm sure he thinks he's being very funny, but he's simply a disgrace. One day, Johnny Depp and his cronies will face the judgment of our Lord and they will burn in hell for this filth."

-- Lee Douglas of the Christian Coalition, who's not at all pleased with Johnny Depp's participation in a song called Jesus Stag Night Club that could, in Bill Nighy in Love, Actually fashion, wind up being the dark horse #1 single in the U.K. on Christmas Day

As you might expect, wrathful Christians are calling the song -- which casts Jesus as a drunken reveler -- "blasphemy." In a related item, there are people who still use the word "blasphemy" and concern themselves with the supposed eternal punishment for it in the year 2011. Gotta give credit to hardcore Christians: They have zero sense of humor and yet they're the funniest people on the planet.

Also, I realize this joke is old as, well, hell -- but if Johnny Depp's gonna be going south once the lights go out, wouldn't you rather be there hanging with him than be just about anywhere else?

Christ, yes!

If they want to get technical, I call blasphemy on the Christian Coalition for their depiction of Christ as a white European who was a pro-war, supply side ecomonics, conservative that advocated complete blind loyalty to the wealthy elite and their megachurch puppet preachers.

If there were a hell, of course Depp would be going there. How else is he going to reconnect with the good Doctor Thompson?

Funny little bit of trivia.

That wedding at Cana? Jesus transmuted six jars of water into wine. Each one of those jars theologians and archeologists estimate would have 20 to 30 gallons. Each.

That was one *heck* of a wedding.

I once saw a picture of Johnny Depp, John Cusack, and Hunter S. Thompson driving around Vegas in a convertible with a blowup doll. I got a 2 hour contact high from it.

I wonder how they feel about 'Jesus Shootin Heroin'.

Meanwhile, how much longer is the threat of Hell going to work? With all the things that can send you there it's becoming fairly obvious it'll be the more interesting afterlife destination. Pretty much everyone I like will be there (if you ignore the fact that I don't believe it actually exists).

Also, I fail to understand why Satan would spend eternity punishing people who are alleged to be doing his work while on Earth. I don't care that he's evil, no one who is supposedly such a devious schemer could be that illogical.
