More Theist Bumper Stickers

On the back of the Atheist Association's recent bus adverts:

"Atheism: Celebrate Reason"

I have been working on comeback slogans for a variety of faiths.
My first one was this:

Jesus: Give yourself a reason.

Hinduism: For an infinite number of lifetimes of Reasons.

Buddhism: For all the right reasons.

Judaism: Because we're Jewish. Who needs a Reason?

Catholicism: WE know how to celebrate, whatever the reason.

I'm still trying to think of one for Mormons.

My family think I am slightly weird although the BA looks at me fondly and says,
"You crack yourself up, don't you mum?"

Funny! How about "Judaism - Arguing about the reasons for thousands of years and ready to argue for another thousand."

Thanks for stopping by.

Ha ha ha! Not only funny, but mostly correct!

(I love your quote about the beer coat)

Very funny...I can never think that fast on my feet. You really could have a field day with the Morman one... Maybe, just ask Dooce to help you with that one!

Arizaphale said...

Jill: That could apply to the Christians too!

Maggie: I did some research

Susie: Neither can I (think on my feet) see above.

I enjoyed this immensely! Can't wait for you to come up with the Mormon one (I seem to be living in Mormon country only wish I had discovered this prior to landing here). ;)

Arizaphale - I said this today, "I don't actually care which way it gets worded on the lesson plan. I just think we should spend a little bit more time arguing about the way it gets worded." And I even meant it. :-0

Arizaphale said...

Hahahaha. And tell me, did your colleagues enter into the spirit of the argument? Did they make their ancestors proud?? :-D

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Totally. Either that or they did what they had to shut me up. :-) :-) :-)
