You've probably all read this elsewhere, but thought I'd throw it out for discussion.

You know, fuck Rick Warren.  I mean, really, fuck him with something sharp and rusty.

At the same time, as far as fundagelical-type TV preachers go, he's actually fairly liberal.  He seems to advocate a fairly mushy Christianity, though he's obviously more socially conservative than your average atheist. 

Still, one can't help but hope that his 900k shortfall is more than a sign of a troubled economy and that people are taking their religion a little less seriously these days.  Then again, the powerful response he got probably indicates otherwise... sigh.

I guess that's what bothers me most; the "$900,000 shortfall".  IF there was actually a "shortfall".  Who's to say he didn't have a boat payment coming up.  But his followers would never question that.  "Well, he follows my god, so he can't be evil."  Don't non-profits have to show their books?  I thought they did, but I've seen several references to Rick Warren not showing his books to anyone.

It's funny, and sad, but someone I know (fundagelical) subscribes to the "a fool and their money..." perspective.  I don't, necessarily, but with regard to fundies, I've come to the conclusion that I want to make my millions by taking it from them.  Seriously.  If I can come up with an idea/product/"system"/other that will pull money from them and put it in my pocket, I won't lose any sleep over it.  Start thinking.

But that implies that you're funneling money away from the fools, but instead of going to Rick Warren, it's going to you.  Aren't you basically subscribing to your friend's perspective?

The Rapture Pet Insurance was a pretty sweet idea.  Robo - I am with you.  You you need to start is your own cult.  Once you get a bunch of folks doing everything you say... dude... think of all the Cheetos you could get!
