Accepting the surrender of the USA; and finding someone more intelligent than me…

Got in late tonight, and started looking at the atheist forums — think I was in a silly mood.

An American poster on RD.net wrote
Q. “At what time in our nation’s history, thanks to the ideals and precepts of Christianity, does this nation need to return to? When, in your estimation, because of Christianity, were things the closest to Christian ideals?

CJ replies —

A. Prior to 1776. You should immediately surrender to Her Britannic Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, or failing that, me.

Allow me to explain. Jesus only endorsed one economic governmental system.

He said “render unto Caesar what is Caesars, what is God what is Gods”.

In doing so he clearly endorsed the governmental situation in colonial Roman occupied Palestine, that is taxation without representation of a subject people by an Imperial authority.

In other words the American situation under the British, prior to 1776.

However the British were in this situation under Canute’s Danish Empire, so as a Dane in Britain I figure we may as well just save everyone hassle by paying me danegeld, preferably in attractive young ladies – a sort of maiden tribute. Alternatively I’ll consider BigMacs or cash sums in lieu of formal taxation.

Now we have cleared this up, just pm me for my paypal details. :)

Another poster in a different thread on how atheists were the elite lamented —

“Many theists I know seem to have a negative view of individuals who could be considered more intelligent than them.”

My reply was simple – ” I don’t — I worship Him” 🙂

Hope they realize I was joking and I’m not quite that arrogant!

About Chris Jensen Romer

I am a profoundly dull, tedious and irritable individual. I have no friends apart from two equally ill mannered cats, and a lunatic kitten. I am a ghosthunter by profession, and professional cat herder. I write stuff and do TV things and play games. It's better than being real I find.

    “I don’t, I worship Him.” – I love it. What a classic line.

    As for our surrender, I’m not sure you want us in our current state. We may have surrendered already to Italy. I read yesterday that our new Blunderer in Chief refused to give Chrysler more bailout money but agreed to give Fiat 6 billion if they buy Chrysler.

    Interesting. I can see one reason why he might want to do that — but if that is correct it does not look good for Chrysler. It would be because the money already ploughed in would be lost without a FIAT stake, and Chrysler is facing bankruptcy? Now if FIAT can introduce the Chrsyler brand to Europe, well maybe. I dunno. I reckon FIATS would sell very well in America, if there is a market for small 40 miles per gallon cars? I’m guessing they might sell a share to FIAT, if that protects American jobs and keeps US motor manufacturing going – and I really, really hope it does!

    The Chrysler brand is already in Europe, in the guise of this hideous thing, which has been much more successful than I’d expected.

    OTOH last time there was a proper Chrysler Europe operation, they went so bust they had to sell the whole thing to Peugeot for a nominal one dollar. I think Fiat would be poisoning their existing strong position if they rebadged any of their existing lines as Chrysler in Europe: but if Chrysler US comes up with some novel electric etc vheicles, it would be another story.
