|Little Alex Asks|
Visualize Little Alex as a precocious little boy, someone like Dennis The Menace or Calvin (of Calvin & Hobbes).
Setting: People exiting a Christian church, after a Sunday service, and the pastor shaking hands with the members of his congregation.
Alex: Sir! Excuse me, but did you not say in your sermon that God is everywhere and knows everything?
Pastor: Yes, my little man.
Alex: Why then do you pray and ask other people to pray for favors? Are there some things God cannot remember and needs reminding of?
Father of Alex, rhetorically: Come on, lets go. Can't you see you have embarrassed the gentleman enough.
Alex: Okay, but don't you always say that if the kid doesn't ask questions how will he ever learn something?
Setting: People exiting a Christian church, after a Sunday service, and the pastor shaking hands with the members of his congregation. Except this time Alex is a teenager.
Alex: That was a great expose on the Vatican's consideration of Surrogate Motherhood as totally unacceptable under any circumstance.
Pastor: Thank you, I believe I really outdid myself in writing today's sermon.
Alex: You realize, of course, that you also committed a serious Logical Fallacy?
Alex: Yes, the a = non-a variety. Remember a few weeks ago your topic was Immaculate Conception?
Alex: Don't you think it is bad form to bad-mouth your Lord's mum?
|Yeah, verily we say unto thee: we have a million of them!|
