Greg van de Krol summarizes (via email) the recent chaos brought about by that awful dictator…
No, not him. The other one:
Speculation has been growing about whether God’s dictatorship will be the next to crumble under the demand for freedom that is sweeping the earth.
Yahweh has now ruled without free elections for over 2,000 years. He seized power after the assassination of his son, although some believe it was an inside job. During this time, he has kept the world’s citizens under constant surveillance, even recording people in the privacy of their own bedrooms. Numerous non-supporters of the regime have been disappearing. Rumor has it that they are being imprisoned in a secret location, never to be seen from again. Amnesty Universal has reported horrific cases of torture simply for not being a member of the ruling party.
Yahweh typically demands unquestioning loyalty from his lackeys, and has even been know to command them to kill their own children, just to see if they will do it. But perhaps growing feebler with age, he has allowed corruption to run wild among his lower officers. Swindling of the elderly and abuse of children by those who collect his taxes has become so wide spread that word of it is no longer a surprise.
Although support remains strong for the aged dictator from those who expect to benefit from his continued rule, there are ever growing waves of dissent, especially among those with access to the Internet. The growth of the net has allowed those who previously had to suffer in silence under his theocratic rule, to connect and share their stories of injustice. Yahweh’s advisers have suggested that the only chance of stemming the tide of his unmasking is to pull the plug on the Internet and bring back book burning.
If he would just step aside, it would be so much better for the world…
