    Watch out for the lightning Richard.

  • Bitter Lizard

    That is offensive to those of us who believe in a loving, perfect God. Images like that infringe on our rights as Christians. The sky is incompatible with our religious liberty and should be banned.

  • tnskeptic
  • sam

    Right back at you, Big Guy (haven’t been a fan ever since that worldwide flood & genocide thingy awhile back)

  • viaten

    No. Those things are just God trying to make it look like it’s Satan. Satan wouldn’t be so stupid as to say “Hey, look how evil I am.”

  • Tainda

    He’s just beckoning us…

  • viaten

    No. Not the whole sky. We just need to ban clouds, or at least ban looking at clouds.

  • 3lemenope

    This is the better solution. Looking at the sky must be made a sin, and a new discipline of meditating upon footwear must be introduced.

  • C.L. Honeycutt

    …Stalin?

    Don’t buy into his bullcrap. That worldwide flood was more of a regional thing. The Tigris and Euphrates flooded every year anyway. God has a great PR firm.

  • katiehippie

    That reminds me of one of the first things that bothered me about the bible. The story where Satan tempts Jesus. One day it hit me that why would Satan do this? Of all people, he would know that Jesus wouldn’t fall for it. He would know far better than us what Jesus is capable of.

  • ShoeUnited

    I had a similar revelation as a kid with the story of Jesus in the desert for 40 days. Except my thinking was “But Jesus already owns all of it.”

  • katiehippie

    They try to make satan out as this really tricky smart bad guy and then he pulls stupid crap like this? We need to revoke his bad guy status for that.

    STALIN! ATHIESM IS A RELIGON!

  • 3lemenope

    And that, my friends, is a “Stalin”.

  • 3lemenope

    He needs some remedial evil education.

  • Bitter Lizard

    I think we might have just verbed “Stalin”.

  • SJH

    That message must be for you, not me.

  • Paul (not the apostle)

    Can’t any of you see the cross (you thought it was a power pole). The message is that although you are fucked up the cross it right there to save you. See how well I interpret anything to fit what I want to believe.

  • allein
  • allein

    That’s actually the first thing I saw.

  • Paul (not the apostle)

    Me too, I had to go back and look at the clouds after reading the comments. It must be my early childhood training still sneaking up on me

  • Bitter Lizard

    STALIN!

  • allein

    I noticed the clouds right after, becuase I figured God wasn’t sending a message through a telephone pole, so I looked again. Sent it to my friend and her response was “please tell me that’s not photoshopped.” :)

  • averydashwood

    Maybe he’s just telling us that he’s #1.

  • viaten

    For that matter, why does Satan do anything “satanic”? Doesn’t he know he’ll lose in the end? What kind of pleasure does Satan get from what he does? Does sadism cloud his judgement? Does he think he’ll get credit (whatever that would be) for all the souls that end up in hell sent there by God’s willful judgment? Or is God thinking, “Darn that Satan. I have to send another soul to hell.” Will Satan, when it’s all over, be suffering horribly in hell thinking, “At least I stopped quite a few souls from being with God. It was all worth it.” God supposedly will have no issue with how many people he ends up sending to hell. Or will Satan be thinking, “What the hell happened? What was I thinking? How did I come to be Satan?” Satan’s behavior doesn’t make much sense unless maybe Satan is in cahoots with God.

    *trolls around the office early Wednesday, trying to bait someone*

    Hey, Bitter Lizard… *leans into cubicle* Guess what daaay it is?

  • guest

    so you’re saying prayer lines don’t work? Oh no….

  • Bitter Lizard

    Pol pot.

  • C.L. Honeycutt

    Noooo, come on, guess!

  • Bitter Lizard

    You’re not this guy, are you?

    * International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

  • ZenDruid

    Great news for foot fetishists.

  • Hat Stealer

    Looks like you’re “Stalin” for time there… Hohohoohohoho

  • Bitter Lizard

    He said Wednesday, and today is Thursday and Talk Like a Pirate Day. Yesterday was National Cheeseburger Day. Tomorrow is National Stalin Cancels Out Everything Bad Religion Does Day.

  • C.L. Honeycutt

    Gah, undone by reason! Nevermind.

  • C.L. Honeycutt

    Yes, but it was Stalin Day. Because Atheism* is a religion every day. Sigh.

    *capitalized, natch.

  • C.L. Honeycutt

    *frowns* Nergal will devour your soul.

  • Bdole

    Ya know, that’s the best evidence I’ve seen to date.
    At least it conforms with my reality.
