The negotiations for a new list went well, and the ecchst-l began a new

Humor is a good thing. Many of those of us from a theistic background
consider it one of the gifts from God.

Humor also has its place. It is not certainly out of place as a part of
our serious business on this list, however 68% of the over 100 posts in
one day given to humor rather than the substantive issues of the various
threads is a bit much.

In order to make ECCHST-L more manageable, but still provide a space fro
those who may want to take the humor further, I have instituted a new
list on religious humor, and you will receive an announcement of that
list shortly.

This is not an attempt to stifle humor on ECCHST-L, but to keep it in
perspective, to allow those who want a brief smile and get on with the
serious business of the list to do so, and those who want to revel in the
hilarity to do so, but in another room, so to speak.

As a result, the ham-fisted authorities of the list will be fairly quick
to suggest that the hilarity be taken to the room made available for that
purpose.

My best to both communities on this multifaceted list.

ANNOUNCING A NEW LISTchicken.gif (36788 bytes)

REHU-L


RELIGIOUS HUMOR



RELIGIOUS HUMOR is an unmoderated forum for holy hilarity and religious
revelry. The primary purpose of the list is to provide an arena for the
escalation of occasional humor interjected into the dominantly serious
discourse of ECCHST-L (Ecclesiastical History), but non-Ecchsters are
welcome as well.

The list is UMODERATED, but not UNMONITORED. The list owner will
intervene in the case of egregious offensiveness or ad hominem attacks.

Which led to these early examples of the listowner lamely trying to prime
the pump, and listmembers stepping in and bailing him out.

Subject: Bumper stickers


I thought of starting a line of bumper stickers for various denominations.
Thus far I've come up with

EPISCOPALIANS DO IT WITH CLASS

PRESYTERIANS DO IT WITH GOOD AND PERFECT ORDER

LUTHERANS DO IT WITH GRACE

CATHOLICS DO IT WITH GUILT

UNITARIANS TALK ABOUT IT

CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS THINK ABOUT IT

But my favorites are Pentecostalists--I'll let you figure out why on your
own.

Any other entrants?

Pentecostals, of course, do it on the floor. Baptists, on the other hand,
do it in the water. Anglicans do it by the book. Zen Buddhists don't do
it al all; they are it. <g

Close, but no cigar on the Pentecostalists. The floor is still open on
that one.

Like the Baptist and Zen, but with the Anglicans, don't we have to ask
how many ribbon markers they use? :)

BTW, maybe two or three of you have already heard this, but the origin of
the denominational bumper sticker idea came from an incident within the
last year. On a morning with particularly nasty traffic, I was driving
east-west in Chicago (always a fun thing to do) and stuck behind a car
with a bumper sticker proclaiming "HONK IF YOU LOVE JESUS." I do, so I did.
The guy driving the car turned around and gave me the finger. I couldn't
stop laughing. Fortunately, the traffic started moving. He did not look
amused. (True story)

I may as well save anyone else from having to lower themselves to
saying it:

"Pentecostals do it with tounges"

There.

Would Lutherans do it best with a diet of worms?

With Presbetyrians, there is always the danger of getting knoxed
up.... rats, I just know that there's a clever pun for a punch-line, but
I'll be damned if I can think of it.....

KEN MOYLE WINS THE PENTECOSTAL DIVISION OF THE BUMPER STICKER CONTEST.

As an overweight Lutheran, I am going to have to think about the diet of
worms.

Calvinist do it with innate depravity.

I can't match what's gone before, but perhaps quantity will make up for
quality:

... with the Anglicans, don't we have to ask
how many ribbon markers they use? :)

Some use many. Others use their fingers.

Anglicans also do it high and low and adopt a variety of positions. They
employ 39 articles.

Christian Scientists not only think about it; they think they're doing it.

Salvationists do it in the street, to music.

Missionaries do it in the field.

Methodists do it soberly.

Quakers do it quietly.

Televangelists do it publicly for money.

Gideons do it in motels.

Yogis do it bearly (sorry about that one!)

Jehovahs Witnesses do it with one foot in the door.

Mormons do it with suits on.

Evangelicals try to get everyone else to do it.

Adventists do it on Saturdays.

Church historians do it vicariously.


BTW, maybe two or three of you have already heard this ...

No comment!!

And the rest of the REHU-L story you know. 

Why, you ask, is Rehu a Quingdom?  Well, it was ruled over by a Queen, who was also our Bishop, sooooo .... We are a Quingdom ruled by a Queen/Bishop (Q/B for short).  Long may the Hatte rule  (that is, the other hat... opposite the sombrero)



THE END

Watch for REHU-L: THE MOVIE, coming soon to a theatre near you!
