Easter Greetings to the Vatican

When the New Statesman New Scientist asked me for my idea of God, I described God as a ventriloquist’s dummy, worked by puppeteers in the religious bureaucracies. But in this video Canadian director Patrick Boivin delightfully makes puppets of the puppeteers also:

Thanks to Paul Canning for pointing me to Patrick’s work. Readers might want to check out Paul’s comments on Iraq’s hideous treatment of gay men, and Britain’s spineless reaction.

    I believe you meant the New Statesman, not the New Scientist.

    Oooops. Thanks. That’s what comes from posting when you’ve just crawled off a 12 hour flight…

    Something I found that I think it will make you a little happier (I love what you do):

    Jesus died so that I
    could have a blissful
    four days break from
    work each year

    This thought is almost
    enough to turn me into
    a good god-fearing
    christian.

    Almost.
