Won't hear that denial from 0bama.

"Deputy Hadley yesterday denied that he was a servant of Satan."

Newspaper quote of the year. Done.

Someone call Donald Pleasence.

It was okay, but not really Carpenter's best work.

Bah! And they'll follow the religious leaders blindly too. The residents have been thoroughly cowed.

Mr. Summersisle only worships Nature and the Old Ways.

Hell, if Obama came out and said he worshiped Ozzy, I'd actually quit my job and volunteer full time.

/Only Sabbath era Ozzy.

I believe in the Dark Lord.

I want to see that minister debate with a "prosperity" mega church preacher that wants to have freer markets on what quotes from the bible support their side of the story.

/ is there anything the bible can't do?

The minister, who did not wish to give his first name, said one day of rest was required 'under the authority of God'

Beelzebub, that's his first name. His friends call him Bub. In South Guernsey, they call him Bubba.

Well Bessie, no Sunday milking for you. God's will, y'know.

Probably ought to send somebody to the island to make sure.

How long has it been since you were a servant of Satan?

I'm an atheist and still support the idea of having most businesses closed on Sunday. But not all, that would be missing the point. Having a day when the small business operator can stay closed and go out and do a little retail shopping, go out to lunch, visit people, maybe even (shudder) attend religious services all lead to the continued existence of the small business.

It's an argument I've made before about car dealers and liquor stores in Texas. Lots of small operators who'd burn out if forced to compete 7 days a week with big corporate interests.

I don't blame him Subby, "Prince of Darkness" was a terrible movie.

Besides if people are out working there not in church putting money in the collection plate.

What about whistling or card playing? Do these not offend the Lord?

Yes, I am an emissary of Satan, but it's largely ceremonial.

So God is going around creating rape babies and Satan is stuck meddling in the politics of some island in the sea of who gives a shiat? Weak Satan. Really weak.

Small island government? How small?

"It's 85 cents in a taxi from one end of the island to the other. This is not a big place."

"They recently had the entire country carpeted. I'm talking small."

...and for a moment I hesitate to use the link, fearing my own small island government has made itself a FARK headline.

/yay, its not us!
/dodged that bullet at least.
