Another Wayward Babe Ripe for Adoption

Jon Willis wants to be adopted so very badly, and he sent the Catholic League a great email (as should you)!

Dear sirs,

I recently got wind of the “Adopt-an-Atheist” program proposed by Bill Donohue and want to congratulate you on such a wonderful idea! As an atheist activist myself, I’d like to let you know that I’m effectively orphaned from gods and as such up for adoption. Since no gods have contacted me as yet, I avail myself to humans to rescue me from my spiritual broken home and make me feel wanted again.

You see, I’ve personally been guilty of anti-Catholic bias. More accurately, I’m biased against all untestable, unfalsifiable claims to the supernatural and the people in leadership positions who exploit the gullibility of other human beings. It’s not just Catholicism, if you want to know the truth. It’s all forms of manipulation, greed, abuse, oppression, ignorance, violence, intolerance, and bigotry. It’s a bias against people who enable others to harm children by looking the other way. It’s a bias against those who avoid responsibility for their actions by claiming that a cosmic “good guy” forgives them unconditionally so long as they apologize telepathically. I’m most certainly biased and I think the only way for you to show me the light is to adopt me and put some real time and effort into helping me see exactly why all of this is OK. You certainly have your work cut out for you.

I suppose the worst that could happen is that I talk some sense into whomever you send my way and you lose a tither. In that case, you shouldn’t look at it so much as the Church losing money but as the world gaining one more rational, responsible, compassionate human being. I said before that your idea is wonderful and I mean it. Send us some Catholics! We love the challenge.

You can reach me any time at jon(at)willisweb(dot)com or via my contact form on The Wayward Willis, http://willisweb.com.

Yours truly,
Jon

Beautiful.  The Catholic League has said they want to adopt the wayward, and I’d say Jon totally qualifies.  And since their Adopt an Atheist program wasn’t a hollow temper tantrum that they totally intend to follow up on, I’m sure Jon can be expecting their love and attention any day now.

    That progaram falls under the category of “concern trolling”. Albeit an interestingly new approach. Could they be developing a sense of humor?….Nahhhh

    Why am I reminded of “Return of the Living Dead”?

    “Send….more….proselytes…”

    Darn. I can’t access the Catholic League website right now and sign myself up. It just goes to show how popular this program is, I guess. They must be getting inundated with adoptee requests.

      Wouldn’t that be great? I hope all of the adoption requests bring down their mail server. That would be an accomplishment!

    Thanks, JT. I really do hope they contact me! I also hope your excellent publicity gets me new readership. :D
