52% approve of God's job performance.

That's what passes for journalism in today's media. What next, a poll asking whether people approve of the Easter Bunny's job performance? Siiiiiigh.

  1. Holy shit (pun intended) Tux - I read the story at the link and had a squizz at the comments to it, just to see what the flavour of the debate was. When I checked in, there were almost 2,000 comments! All for a silly story about a poll on the job performance of a non-existent sky spook. Ain't people got nothin' better to do? On the bright side, God-skeptics were out in force, giving a good jeering to the superstitious folks.

  2. "Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm based in North Carolina"

    Uh-huh. Probably about as Democratic as all the rest of the southern "Dems".

  3. I give god a big thumbs down. In fact, after the creation (approved by a 71-5 landslide, I note) it's pretty much all a mess. In fact, I'd say god is a bigger fuck-up than Tolkein's elves - and their history was a 30 millennium cluster-fuck.

    I'm not all that thrilled with creation, truth to tell - what the fuck is up with mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, Republicans, and all the rest of the the blood-sucking vermin who take, take, take and contribute nothing? At least carrion eaters recycle, in their own foul way.

    I'm with Oolon Colluphid.

    It's not my fault - god made me do it.
