how many christians will wake up this morning

to celebrate “the resurrection” &

then turn on their television to see if the nukes have

begun to fly?

how many christians will vote in november to elect the

figurehead of an empire that will promise the quickest

way to bring upon their “armageddon,” via the

building up of the military & using it to stomp on as

many people possible in hopes that somebody,

somewhere, will start their “rapture” a blooming?


these individuals waking up this morning

bearing such sugar-plums dancing in all their heads

(better be the least sexually suggestive dance

possible, mind you)

represent what percentage of americans that think

their “jesus”

is bound to return

within their lifetime?


daunting numbers are thrown around by papers &

research groups,

telling the rest of us that something like 40% or more



are all raring to go when the nukes start to fly &

“jesus” comes down from the sky to save them all

because they have been good little girls & boys---


how many of the button pushers sitting right now with

their fingers on the triggers

do you think are part of that 40%?


and all this time you were scared of a little ol’ islamic
