Christians are inadvertently hilarious
If you’re a regular to the site, you’re bound to have read an article I wrote a while ago called “10 reasons why Superman is better than Jesus”, my tongue-in-cheek comparison of these two fictional characters. This article still receives a lot of traffic, not to mention endless comments about how I’m supposed to believe there really was a historical Jesus (if you want to read a great article explaining just how weak his historicity is, go here).
The latest bruhaha to come from this article is a Facebook page that tries to “break down” my arguments systematically to attempt and prove Jesus is in fact superior to Superman. I don’t think I need to mention just how hilarious/ridiculous this is, but here are some of the best “quotes”:
3.Jesus may have died for your sins, but Superman died to protect us from an intergalactic killing machine called Doomsday
Refute Argument # 3:
Dying in sin is worst than facing Doomsday. He can kill people but he cannot kill souls which are immortal. Jesus’ mission is to save us all from our sins so that we may also have eternal life and be with God forever in heaven.
I’m curious about this one: how exactly is “dying in sin” worst than facing an unstoppable killing machine intent on destroying all life it sees? Christians love throwing around the story Jesus got the shit beaten out of him to show the “weightiness” of his sacrifice, but there are tons of people on earth who have more than a “bad weekend”, suffering their whole lives in agony before perishing.
Anyways, the rest of the article is pretty hilarious, and I feel almost honored some delusional fool spent his time trying to refute a comedy article. It’s fucking hilarious.
