Benjamin Myers: A few things I could never believe

The post by Ben Myers at the Faith and Theology Blog is priceless:

In his delightfully pessimistic song, “Everything Goes To Hell” (2002), Tom Waits sings:

There’s a few things that I never could believe:
A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who says he’ll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays…

So that got me thinking. And here are a few things that I never can believe:

A telemarketer who wants “just a few moments.”
A politician who talks about “our way of life.”
A church which describes itself as “Bible-based.”
A record company which produces “Christian music.”
A theologian who uses the word “tolerance.”
A TV preacher who says “glory to God!”
