God is

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on January 26, 2010

I was taking the subway to work in NYC this morning when an add caught my eye. It was a bunch of words with the large letters “God Is” in the middle of it. The add belongs to the Times Square Church, a church which I attended once at the request of a friend of mine who was trying to save me I guess. Needless to say I was underimpressed by both the preaching and the singing. I particularly didn’t enjoy having to stand up every few minutes or so; made taking a nap hard.

Nevertheless I went to the website of the TSC and found an image of the ad which I am reproducing below:

You can read more about the add campain at the Times Square Church website. Here is a listing of the statements that make up the ad, as shown on the TSC website, with my comments in red.

The ads describe God in just a few of the infinite ways He will prove His presence to you every day.

God is…

  • With you - So are all imaginary friends
  • Willing to help - Tell that to the people of Haiti
  • Able to protect - Tell THAT to the people of Haiti
  • A father - Yes we get it; you’re a patriarchal religion, get over it
  • A husband to the widow - He’ll be in much demand in Haiti
  • Your friend – Would a friend let you get crushed alive by brick and cement? Didn’t think so!
  • For you – I’m not sure what being “for you” means, but I’m sure the PEOPLE OF HAITI would disagree
  • Aware of your struggle – Peeping Tom
  • Powerful – It takes mighty power to destroy Port-au-Prince
  • Merciful – Didn’t even blink to kill over 150,000 in Haiti. Now that’s mercy if I’ve ever seen it!
  • Good – I guess killing hundreeds of thousands within hours can be construed as good in his infinite wisdom!
  • Provider – Of death and suffering
  • A good listener – When he feels like it
  • The one with your answer – But you’ve gotta tithe to get to that answer
  • The one who loved you – Loved as in past tense. So did my ex-girlfriend. I still call her EX!
  • And always will be – What a joy!
  • There when no one else is – Except that he’s not really
  • Power to change – Yeah such as changing the course of events in Haiti?
  • Incredible – Incredibly cruel that is
  • Alive – Unfortunately?
  • Ready to forgive – Are we ready to forgive HIM?
  • Looking at you – Stop it you pervert! I’ve already got enough of that from Santa!
  • Here, now – Where?
  • Jesus – Whatever, you can call him whatever you want. My imaginary friend’s name was Jessy.

    Wait, this ad was in the subway? And there’s no outcry, like with the atheist bus campaign?

    My poor sensitive EYES! I am so OFFENDED! Think about the CHILDREN!
