What, like “P.S. I Love You” wasn’t enough sentimental crap for you for one season?!

Reason # 5228 why Christianity would be my last choice for religion, if I had to pick one: Other people’s *$%^ dogs everywhere, apparently.

Ah well, if you have to lie to children, that’s a fairly classy way to do it.

If.

It would move me to tears, if I still had tears to shed. (I used them all up watching Voices of a Distant Star the other day.)

In all seriousness, that is a great story.

This is the sort of thing that reminds me not to be so angry at all the Believers all the time.

Apparently this particular anecdote has been kicking around for a long time:

How does being circulated for just over a year count as “kicking around for a long time”?

Well, longer than the time since it’s been in that Craigslist entry, I meant.

Oh that was sweet. And I was worried when I saw the snopes link that it was a fake, but there was actual evidence to back the claim up-joy! It’s nice to have something else to put on the “plus” side of everyday Christianity after politics in the U.S. have made agnostics like me run and hide.

You know, most people ask Jesus for this kind of thing. No, no, she had to go and send a letter to corporate, huh?

You know it was probably all the staff of that post office who came up with that. Way to fuck with a kid’s definition of reality, USPS!!

Interesting note: Apparently, in the Koran, there is a passage that says something along the lines that animals, as sentient beings, might have their own separate heaven or might not, but they aren’t going where we are. It also says that in heaven, no one poops, so…
