  1. “He hasn’t saved us.”
    Saved you from what?

    • Ah…I guess that would be in the mind of the speaker. Saved you from hell? Saved you from degradation? Slavery? Second-class citizenship? Despair?

      • Reason?

        Well…I think the speaker should be a little more specific. If she’s looking for a religion to save her from something, it might be good to know what that something is. Especially when trying to delegitimize the one half the planet adhere’s to in one way or another.

        • Good point. Me? I’m being saved from the likes of you, I hope.

          Not really. See you in heaven.

          • If there’s a heaven? There better be coffee. Just sayin’. If you get there and I’m not around? Probably no coffee.

            Just about everybody wants to be saved from the likes of me. In one way or another. I’m just glad they don’t burn us at the stake anymore. Here anyway.
