Today I ran a social experiment…
(I can hear you breathing out there in anticipation)
I always tend to shy away from anything religious on social media (or this blog) because, well, America.
This is a country where I was told to watch my language when I said ‘goddammit’.
Unfortunately I quickly realised they weren’t joking and stopped pointing and laughing at them.
So, what’s this experiment that I’m taking way too long getting to the point of explaining?
Well, today I shared this picture on facebook:
I wanted to see exactly what reaction it would generate.
Well…except my wife who, despite being American, doesn’t count because she is an honorary Brit.
But in all seriousness, poking any fun at religion here in America is like insulting someone’s family or friend (imaginary or otherwise).
And by religion I mean Christianity. Or is it Catholicism? Or Judaism?
No, wait, it’s the Mormons…no, wait, it’s Jehovah’s witnesses isn’t it?
Wait, which religion is it that has Jesus in it?
It’s…..all of them isn’t it?
I don’t know, it’s all very confusing.
At the end of the day, I clearly only mean the ‘Jesusy’ ones and not the many MANY other religions worldwide that surely can’t be proper religions…right?
(shrugs) I don’t know.
So, the experiment is underway and I’m curious to see if I get crucified for this.
Hang around and find out 😉
