    Awwww, isn’t that sweet? If only real people could think of things this way.

  2. latsot says:

    I rather think quite a lot of people *do* think that way and that it is hardly a good thing.

  3. JayBee says:

    Oh boy! Some alliance this is…

  4. Gunnlaugur says:

    Hey, she said “goodbye” in Icelandic. (Yeah, that’s “bless.” Bummer for us unbelievers.)

  5. carolita says:

    See, now this is exactly the kind of thing that scares me about “the faithful.” As long as you believe in something? As long as you live your delusions as willfully as me? As long as we all go down together?

    I’m shuddering right now. Shudder, shudder.

    Coulda Woulda Shudder..

  7. They both pretend to know things that they cannot possibly know – I love the way the barmaid puts things. And the way J and Mo just float right over them.

  8. kynefski says:

    What a wonderful summary of ecumenism. It’s the act of pretending that we share.

  9. yelinna says:

    Aaawww!! Jesus and Mo having a hug!
    This is adorable. Their people should do the same.

    More than four years on, and this is still topical. Take a bow, Baroness Warsi!

  11. Why can’t real religions concentrate on what they share: hatred of women and gay people?

    “They both pretend to know things that they cannot possibly know – I love the way the barmaid puts things. ”

    Wait, is the barmaid secretly Sam Harris?

    In Judaism the matriarch figure is very important; if your mother is Jewish you technically are, but not if your father is. Although, if you don’t go to an orthodox synagogue only men can be rabbis…

  14. Mary Mary says:

    Barmaid reminds me so much of Ms. Sara Bellum from The Powerpuff Girls. She is the faceless voice of reason and logic and secretary to the Mayor and advises him and the Girls in their adventures.
    LOVE this site, thanks so much for the smiles and thinks, Author!

    Correction to Ottebrain, sorry but that is not strictly true any more if it ever was. You can be Jewish with a Jewish father only, or even with not a Jewish relative in sight so long as you convert properly.
    The State of Israel has loads of inclusive rules about this.
    It’s nice to see a government being inclusive.
