Interestingly, the similarities extend far beyond looks. One of these people claims to regularly feast on the flesh and blood of a dead Jew, and the other one is Hannibal Lecter.
And before the Jesus freaks start writing in about how Hannibal is a fictional character, allow me to offer a preemptive “Yep – and so is this God fulla you guys keep going on about“.
Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it. Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.
