Chasing the devil
There is a passage somewhere in every religious text book from the Bible to the Koran that mentions something about going to war for your religious cause

Halfway through his set, Adam Green (with whom we are on tour), turns to the audience and says, "We are going to bring Judaism back to Toronto." Unsure about how much more Moses and Kabalah Toronto needs I am disinclined to listen to the rest of his rant and I turn to his road manager who is sitting by me and ask,

"Where are you guys off to after America?"

"Germany. Adam is huge in Germany, like the cover of Rolling Stone huge," she replied.

"Oh, wow!" I wonder if Adam is also going to try and bring Judaism back to Berlin. "Any trips planned to Arkansas?" I ask.

I don't think she heard me this time. Arkansas may not need Adam, however. They just opened their very own Natural History Museum in which science has been replaced by the book of Genesis. The museum depicts a world created by God in six days and where humans and dinosaurs live together until eventually the superior human survives and the poor dino becomes extinct. I assume the curator never watched Spielberg depiction of Man vs. T-Rex in Jurassic Park.

"What about Florida?" I ask, this time a little louder.

"We haven't been there yet."

"We are thinking about going down there. We have a lot of fans in Pensacola," I mention knowing that we haven't made it down there yet because I am scared of Jeb Bush. His most recent legislation that allows Floridians to draw a gun on anyone who makes them feel threatened, to be honest, is a little too much for me. In my book this makes him Darth Vader to La Pierre's (Head of NRA) Darth Sidious. But, the Bush family are Christians. How do such devote Christians reconcile their beliefs with pro-gun legislation? Honestly though I may know the answer.

There is a passage somewhere in every religious text book from the Bible to the Koran that mentions something about going to war for your religious cause. Did any of you take Bible class? Did you ever come across Paul's letter to the Ephesians: 'Put on the full armor of God so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil'. In red-neck this translates into: 'Pick up your guns all ye rednecks and shoot anyone who looks like he come from an Axis of Evil nation because they look threatening'.

This just leaves one question: Why was the President holding Prince Abdullah's hand? After all weren't most of the 9/11 hijackers from Saudi? Isn't Prince Abduillah threatening then?
