What’s the source of this?
The propagandistic tone of the image does not suggest to me that the author would be likely to leave their own children free from influences that might bias them. Then again, is there any realistic approach to child raising that does not transmit ethics and values? Parents who don’t teach whether it’s OK to hit other kids or to steal things?
I think the author/artist has a problem with religion. Not with ethics and values in general.
It would be better without the slogan, just the image.
Hey, how come the Christians come in 2 different brands?
Only two? Like the old joke goes….
I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said, “Stop! Don’t do it!”
“Why shouldn’t I?” he said.
I said, “Well, there’s so much to live for!”
He said, “Like what?”
I said, “Well, are you religious or atheist?”
He said, “Religious.”
I said, “Me too! Are your Christian or Buddhist?”
He said, “Christian.”
I said, “Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?”
He said, “Protestant.”
I said, “Me too! Are your Episcopalian or Baptist?
He said, “Baptist!”
I said, “Wow! Me too! Are your Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?
He said, Baptist Church of God!”
I said, “Me too! Are your Original Baptist Church of God or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?”
He said, “Reformed Baptist Church of God!”
I said, “Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?”
He said, “Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915!”
I said, “Die, heretic scum!” and pushed him off.
My belief is only Christians go to hell, the other religions don’t have hell.
