A Wee Ode

Ode to Ray Comfort
by Weemaryanne

Hail to the Chief, he's the Chief and he needs hailing,

(Though Lord knows his dull prose and 'pologetics may be failing),

Nonetheless we confess he's our Leader tried 'n' true,

Nonbelievers pay attention now! -- He's lyin' just fer you!

PS. Thank you Weemaryanne, for the excellent Ode. I hope to be posting mine soon.Hey Weemaryanne,

I was thinking about writing an Ode (and actually did several months ago, but deleted it), or maybe a Wee poem. I thought it might be a little over the edge, but I like him SOOO much (being perfectly honest here), I think I will give it a try.

Yours is really good. Now that we have elected him as our Commander-in-chief, (unrequited admiration as it may be), I think the more honor we can bestow upon him, the better, something befitting this prestigious occasion, but not too fluffy. Something capturing the Irony of having a Christian mascot (who else could heard cats so well, who else could capture our attention?). Something which does justice to the shear amount of laughter bestowed upon us lowly, angry atheists, (so undeserving of a second of his busy schedule conquering all of Nonbelieverdom). They say Laughter is the best medicine, so Ray would in-fact be our daily dose against our depravity, a doctor if-you-will. What an honor, what an honor.

Why is Ray our President?

Think of the Atheist's worst opponent.
They would have a dual PhD in biology, and theology. Articulate and wise, they could shut down an atheist point-for-point on every subject.

Now think of the opposite of that.
Someone with little more than a community college education, the scientific understanding of an eight year old, a bungling preacher who believes light is invisible, that fumbles every single argument. In 24 odd years, they haven't made a noteworthy contribution to the debate.

That is why Ray is our president.

I plan to preface future SoapBox comments thusly:

FROM: Weemaryanne
TO: The Commander in Chief

Then I suppose he must be addressed by one of his many titles:

Most Excellent Chiefly One,
Yer Magnitude,
Oh Fruit Salad Bowl of Infinite Wisdom,

and so on. Maybe if you and I start this -- and let's face it, we're already committed! -- the others will pick up on it.

he is a kind of compendium of all christian and atheist knowledge. He knows everything about Evolution, so he must be pretty smart.

so the last one is probably more accurate.
