For good or bad, she has my full respect and always will do - even though I think she is misguided in her thinking.
She came knocking at my door in 1994 claiming to bring me 'good news'. At the time I had been discharged from hospital following an unexpected operation which saved my life. I was unable to go out for 13 weeks and was bored shitless and pretty fucked off.
Well, you'd want a bit of good news after all that then. Wouldn't ya..?

Where's that then?

Parasites..! They get in there, at the sick and needy..!

I'm confused by this point. I choose to believe no gods exist. But, if they did, wouldn't they be all sexes to all humanity?

Yeah, but why..? Could it be she's been totally disempowered by all the psycho-babble that is faith..? Head maybe done it by it..? Perhaps she really was glad to see a friend..?

I tried to find the joys of being a female but failed and became a Nun. I was never accepted. Mother Superior frequently tugged my beard and pinched my arse..! She made me wear crotchless PVC and licked her lips a lot...

We got corned beef sandwiches...

Don't say it loudly. George 'n' Tony will tax it and drill us for essential resources..!

It's off apparently. Someone said God got blootered on fine scotch and drew a cartoon of Mohammed with his lad out. Mohammed's crowd said this was normal practice for their deity at rehearsal weddings. God's granny smirked and sniggered at Mohammed's lad and the church got burned to the ground. Last I heard Vishnu was knobbin' Allah and God had her first lesbian encounter...
I'll never work religion out...
