Composite Faith

Poem By Professor Poetry Hound

Why do you think God created so many religions?
Maybe he wasn’t thinking straight and didn’t
anticipate how annoying they would become,
always running around claiming they’re the only
way. It’s not like any of them can prove it. I believe
God would be pleased if we formed a single
religion out of the best parts of all the existing ones.
For instance, Buddhism could contribute serenity
and peacefulness. Judaism could contribute
intellectual thought and lox & bagels. I think
Christianity should contribute the music. No, not
those cheesy Christian rock bands. Gospel music,
man! Er, I don’t think we need anything from
Scientology – well, maybe some John Travolta DVDs.
And one thing’s for sure: Islam will just have to
contribute all those virgins you get after you die.

what an awful, banal satire. neither funny, nor artful, nor profound.
What will it be....door number one, two or three? ''Door one, no two, I mean one... no... I'll take number three''...yeah, yeah...number three....it's a bit like that~!
I totally concur! I can't stand Scientology one iota!
While informative, it reads like you have written some text, and broken it up and put it on here as a poem...is it a poem though?
Really fun cool poem, subtracting the ugly and keeping the beauty.
