The Postmodern Medium-Length Catechism

Email Print

Christopher Alexion brings us a very funny Postmodern Medium-Length Catechism.

LRC readers will particularly enjoy Questions 15-21, e.g.:

Q15: What is the only redeemer of postmoderns?
A: The only redeemer of postmoderns is the Lord High State, which though the coercer of men, condescended to feel our pain, and so was, and continueth to be, coercer and pain-feeler, in two distinct natures, and one administration, forever.

Q16: Wherein consisteth the humiliation of the State?
A: The humiliation of the state consisteth in its being limited by the Founders, in allowing Terrorist Attacks, and losing Jobs.

Q20: How doth the State execute its office as priest?
A: The State executeth its office as priest, in continually offering up tax dollars for social programs, and in delivering us from Hate Crimes.

I also like Question 35 on the Seven Deadly Vices: “Intolerance, Bigotry, Logic, Extremism, Sexism, Smoking, and making Sin-judgments.”
