He Boiled For Your Sins

Published March 21st, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

Thanks to Kaitlyn for this beautiful illustration:



I got a surprising number of angry emails about this.  Surprising because while I can see how “He Boiled For Your Sins” could be viewed as making fun of the Christian “He Died For Your Sins”,  I know that there was no intention to offend.

We find the barrage of Jesus-on-a-cross imagery and “He died for your sins” propaganda tasteless and gaudy.  We find the concept of Original Sin offensive.  We believe it mocks rationality.

Most of all, we believe it’s a dangerous thing when religion is seen as above criticism or humor.  So while we’re aware that some of the things we say will offend, that’s not our intention – merely an accepted cost of the larger goal of shining light on what in our view is lunacy.  We can respect people and their beliefs *and at the same time* criticize what they send out into the world – there is no contradiction.

    I have two problems with that:

    First the FSM has told me that it prefers not to choose one sex over another, so it suggests to stay with “The Monster” or “It”.

    Second, as there are no strict commandments, how can there be sin? As far as I know there is only one dogma in pastafarianism: there are no dogmas.

    I would therefore respectfully suggest to consider changing that slogan to “It boiled for you” or “It boiled for your hunger”. I think that the similarity to that other solgan is still recognizable.

      The 10 condiments also known as the “I’d rather you didn’t’s”
      Specify the sins. Saying the monster spoke to you is one of them xD

      It’s fun, but I think the concept of original sin is not well with the Pastafarianism. But it is to laugh then laugh. However I found another version, less powerful but more enjoyable: https://www.facebook.com/european.pastafarians/photos/a.740133999334373.1073741828.737547406259699/1189330221081413/?type=3
      Thus some sins appear as a pleasure embodied in the communion (the Christian cannibalistic symbol always surprised me)

        I like the concept of boiling with fun. After all people boil with energy or boil with rage so why not fun?

      Jeremy, you fool, no one agrees with your stupid post. Now be a good little boy and disappear. You should note also that brevity is a skill.

    Dear Jeremy, May the Bluebird of Happyness crap on your birthday cake.

    FFS why are these fundies so verbose? I always tell students if they cannot state a case succinctly, they don’t fully understand it. I think this is the case with fundies. They have to bluster because their case is so much nonesense it must be shrouded in verbosity.

    To steal a quotation:
    Jeremy you pray for me. In return I’ll think for you.

  5. Cap'n Grey Beard says:

    Hehe he’s not religious but believes in the kingdom of heaven and will pray for us LMFAO. Do we have a word for fundies who think they are moderates? Fomodies?. Fo as in “faux”. Fake moderate.

    Any better suggestions?

  6. Cap'n Grey Beard says:

    In any case i think “fundy” has had it’s day. You see “fundamentalist” has “mental” righ in the middle. A joke from FSM. I bet he pssied himself when he wrote that one. Calling them “fundies” is forgetting that they are “mentally challenged”.

    • Keith says:

      It also has “fundament” in it because they talk out of their arses.

      • kekka says:

        Was there a single full stop in that tirade?

        • Rasputin says:

          Well spotted, kekka. Message to Jeremy: You are WELCOME to visit us again and discuss theology, but please PLEASE keep it short, use full stops and make it interesting. Nobody will read your stuff if it’s overly long and unpunctuated, least of all me. Which is why I didn’t.
