A Tale of Three Christians

by pessimist

This is one of the weirdest stories I've ever heard. I'm not sure exactly what to think of it, so I will leave the interpretations up to you.

First, I have a friend who is a Seventh-day Adventist. We'll call her 7D. 7D has a friend who is one of Jehovah's Witnesses. We'll call her JW. JW has a friend who - according to 7D, who was told this by JW - is a member of Robert Schuller's Christal Cathedral. We'll call her CC.

Now that we have that organized, I can relate the tale.

7D was telling me about her beliefs of these being the Final Days, and how they believe that soon we will be seeing the Mark of the Beast on people who aren't going to be saved. (Personally, I suspect that will prove to be something resembling GOP party emblems, but who am I to say?). She then goes on to tell me that her friend, JW, believes - along with her co-religionists - that THEIR idea of the Mark is to have an RFID tag embedded under the skin to denote those who belong to Satan.

But when JW related this to CC, CC claimed that was incorrect. CC states that those who HAVE the RFID tag embedded under the skin will be the only ones who will be allowed to enter Heaven during the Rapture.

As 7D said, "Can you see St. Peter scanning everyone who approaches the Pearly Gates?"

Only in my darkest nightmares.

I have a theory. Just as the entire nation has been divided by fomenting dissention among those upset over many of today's social issues, thus making us all the more controllable because we aren't reaching a critical mass to oppose the fascist multinationalists, could it be that certain misinformation is being distributed among the various religious groups to ensure that THEY don't reach some kind of critical mass?

We've been hearing numerous reports about how the religious community is seeking to flex their political muscles to impose their 'moral values' on the rest of us through the law now that George owes them for his 'victory'.

Could it be that Bu$hco has other ideas?

What say you?
