Absurdity

I took the description of Jews for Jesus from Wikipedia, changed a few nouns and came up with the following. Seems almost as absurd as Jews for Jesus. This is not in any way a comment on Christianity. If Jews want to be Christians, let them, just don't try to convert me.

Democrats for Bush is a Republican right wing organization that focuses specifically on the conversion of Democrats to Republicans. Its members consider themselves to be Democrat — either Democrat as defined by Democrat law, or Democrats according to Democrats for Bush — as "living out their Democratness." Democrats for Bush defines "Democrat" in terms of parentage and as a birthright, regardless of political belief. The identification of Democrats for Bush as a Democrat organization is overwhelmingly rejected by Democrat political denominations and secular Democrat groups due to the Republican - specifically right wing - beliefs of its members. The group's right wing activities are opposed also by some Republican organizations and scholars.

Yankee Fans for The Red Sox is a New England fan organization that focuses specifically on the conversion of Yankee Fans to Red Sox Fans. Its members consider themselves to be Yankee Fans — either Yankee Fans as defined by Yankee Fans, or Yankee Fans according to Yankee Fans for The Red Sox — as "living out their Yankee Fandom." Yankee Fans for The Red Sox defines "Yankee Fans" in terms of parentage and as a birthright, regardless of personal preference. The identification of Yankee Fans for The Red Sox as a Yankee Fans organization is overwhelmingly rejected by Yankee Fans and Yankee Fan groups due to the Red Sox - specifically fan - beliefs of its members. The group's fan activities are opposed also by some New England organizations and scholars.

I have never understood the concept of Jews for Jesus since I first saw them demonstrating on my college campus many years ago. This is a great way to point out the absurdity of one group of people trying to convert another. I don't understand that need. Well-done!

How about "Cats for Dogs", "Women for Rocks" and "Men for "Apical Meristems"? Celebrate diversity!

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. I go through moods like this, where I can't think of anything humorous to write, so I howl at the moon.

As for diversity, sometimes I'm little more than a "one trick pony."

I'm about to start reading a book on Roosevelt and the Holocaust. Before I read nonfiction, I like to reseach the topic. So I'm doing a time line of the era. I may post it later.

As Billy Joel said, "There's a place in the world for the Angry Young Man."
