So you clicked on the link…
I was all prepared this morning to do a savage takedown of these (possibly well meaning) idiots.
I mean seriously, “JesusWeen”? Handing out gospel tracts instead of candy? Dressing in an easily recognized uniform? Have these people forgotten the “tricks” part of the trick or treat equation? There’s not enough toilet paper in the world for these people.
I also find it quite ironic that they feel it is necessary to co-opt what they see as a wicked secular holiday “Halloween”, when in fact “All Hallows Eve”, the night before All Saints Day is already a Christian makeover of a pagan ceremony, as this crazy person can show you.
So yeah, I was all ready for my first ad ass internet take-down of an incredibly bad Christian idea, when two things happened. Firstly, the always excellently awesome Fred Clark at Slacktivist beat me to it. Fred is the worlds coolest Evangelical Christian, and the primary reason I cut any of you religious people any slack at all, because he’s proof that you can believe in magic carpenters without being completely crazy.
And secondly..if it’s not a “Poe” , then it’s a remarkable facsimile.
To quote Poe’s Law : Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won’t mistake for the real thing
Now look again at that Facebook page. All of the postings by JesusWeen are in the same grammar deficient tone as the opening paragraph. All of the links go to the same page.
On the JesusWeen page, which is also the JesusWin page, the only links that work refer back to the JesusWeen Facebook page. Nothing else works, including the laughable assertion that there is a JesusWeen app of some sort, (not in the apple app store at least).
Everything else on the page are simple blogging widgets, added on seemingly at random.
Then there’s this image.
Why, in the name of all that is good in the universe, is scary intense Bible-woman handing the Earth to that couple with her Mutant Butt Hands?
Or is she catching the Earth with her Mutant Butt Hands?
Only Jesus knows…
