Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Surreality

First there was a large white manilla envelope, from an Organization Which Shall Not Be Named. Upon said envelope was emblazoned, in big blue letters:

Same-Sex Unions and Child Sacrifice

The contents informed me, carefully and in graphic detail, of the perils of electing Sen. Obama, and my dereliction as a pastor if I did not warm my flock. They even included DVD's to show the congregation, as well as sermon notes to help me preach "with boldness and clarity, before it's too late." They promise in their next mailing to deal with "The Free Exercise of Islamic Violence."

I put it down and washed my hands. Twice.

Then I turned to the next item in today's mail: a postcard praising a local candidate, a veterinarian, for state rep in our district. Said rousing endorsement came from the governor's dog. Complete with the "Official Paw Print of Approval."

This election season really is in an alternate universe, isn't it? Lord, have mercy.

Well, I haven't got the dog-approved mailing yet, but I have received the stuff from the helpful Judeo-Christian people informing me of my pastoral duty to keep my flock from falling for Obama's tactics.

Yeah ...

Delete, in all forms.

I received a copy for each one of the three churches... didn't even bother opening any of them.

I opened my Judeo-Christian envelope yesterday, out of curiosity. Then after about 30 seconds unceremoniously dumped the whole works in the trash. Even the paper components.

I don't think garbage that foul will even recycle.
