It wasn’t just the wafer, there was also a sip of wine too, if I recall correctly. Honestly, at the time, it had to do with an upset digestive system. I missed a portion of the ceremony due to running back and forth from the bathroom in the basement of the church. The part I missed must have been about all the benefits since I didn’t stay Catholic, lol.

Now we’re dealing with barfing as a result of religion being screwed up? An honest-to-God (or maybe not) involuntary physiological reaction to all this force-fed garbage?

Increasingly, I think I need to act on the “7 levels of religion” video game idea where Sarah ascends through the temple, beating up a god of a different religion on each floor a la Kung Fu Master.

Why not spare a little contempt for religion when religions seem to have so much contempt for the likes of you and me? We need to “hit back” for a change!

Hi Chris,
The video game sounds awesome and naturally I’m very flattered. Since I’m a writer, I’d like to write dialogue of me trash-talking the gods, much as Colbert did with Quetzacoatl (I loved that sketch).
On a more serious note, I do agree that there are times when we, as atheists, can and should hit back. Think about how things would be if we were discussing anything other than religion and remember that religion is *not* exempt from criticism.
Apparently, my Mom and Dad are.

Welcome to Gabbin' About God, sponsored by Ace Religious Supplies, where they say, “If we don't got it, it ain't holy.”

Just kidding. This is Not My God, a site for the personal aspect of atheism. I'm putting together a book with that title, having already 20 interviews lined up, but I still want to hear from more of you.
I've expanded the blog to include material not related to atheism, including rants, raves, consumer issues, curmudgeonly matters and other miscellany.
