Funny, I'm a big fan of Kierkegaard, but I have yet to read any of Barth's stuff.

Excellent, really excellent, at least given the premise, itself kind of funny, that a liberal and a member of the RR would be anywhere near the same altitude as Barth. But, again, given that a truly super joke.

Now, can we bring back all the jokes about EUCSA Lite . . .they might be timely.

I heard a joke the other day...

I was waiting at the train station this morning, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off as a train approached.
So I ran over and said "Stop! Don't do it!" He said "Why shouldn't I?".
I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!" He said, "Like what?"
I said, "Well, are you religious or atheist?" He said, "Religious."
I said, "Me too! …Are you Christian or Buddhist?" He said, "Christian."
I said, "Me too! …Are you Catholic or Protestant?" He said, "Protestant."
I said, "Me too! …Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?" He said, "Baptist!"
I said, "Wow! Me too!…Are you Baptist church of God or Baptist church of the Lord?" He said, "Baptist church of God!"
I said, "Me too! Are you original Baptist church of God, or are you reformed Baptist church of God?" He said, "Reformed Baptist church of God!"
I said, "Me too! Are you reformed Baptist church of God, reformation of 1879, or reformed Baptist church of God, reformation of 1915?"
He said, "Reformed Baptist church of God, reformation of 1915!"
I said, "Die, heretic scum"…and pushed him off.

Kim and Michael,

Both hilarious jokes! While the former is pure pleasure, the latter is also sobering and educational. Thanks for these!

michael, the joke is taken from an old emo phillips routine, believe it or not.

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said "Stop! don't do it!" "Why shouldn't I?" he said. I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!" He said, "Like what?" I said, "Well...are you religious or atheist?" He said, "Religious." I said, "Me too! Are you christian or buddhist?" He said, "Christian." I said, "Me too! Are you catholic or protestant?" He said, "Protestant." I said, "Me too! Are you episcopalian or baptist?" He said, "Baptist!" I said,"Wow! Me too! Are you baptist church of god or baptist church of the lord?" He said, "Baptist church of god!" I said, "Me too! Are you original baptist church of god, or are you reformed baptist church of god?" He said,"Reformed Baptist church of god!" I said, "Me too! Are you reformed baptist church of god, reformation of 1879, or reformed baptist church of god, reformation of 1915?" He said, "Reformed baptist church of god, reformation of 1915!" I said, "Die, heretic scum", and pushed him off. -- Emo Phillips
