I've already made the headlines in my new country! Well, the newspaper... OK, I mean the "Letters" page.

This is the article that prompted my outraged screed: I was raised from the dead, woman tells

And this is the screed itself: A terrible fate awaits (scroll down a bit)

One of my mother-in-law's friends alerted us to the fact that it had been posted, after having read it and either recognized my name or my scintillating wit. (I'm postive it was one of the two.)

Newspapers printing articles that are critical of their handling of religion? Must be a feature of the socialist nanny state.


  1. It is clear that the best line in this story is:

    "Pastor Nalliah said it was the third time he had seen someone raised from the dead after the Holy Spirit told him to call back life."

    Just to clarify, this is the third time that he has seen the holy spirit bring someone back to life after the holy spirit told him to bring said person back to life.

    Why cant he just be a badass and take full credit now then thank Jesus at the award ceremony??

  2. Hehe.

    Seriously, I think that language is an escape hatch: if he tries to raise someone, and fails, he can say "I didn't really hear the Holy Spirit, but I decided to try anyway just in case."
