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.

    Oh dear . . . a plastic sieve
    No wonder looks a little worried.

    Silly Christians, wasting time grumbling over satire when they should be getting their lives in order with the rapture right around the corner. (May 21st 2011 as per http://www.ebiblefellowship.com)

      I’d be interested to see this website when May the 21st rolls around and the world is still here. How they can say that spreading the word of doom is a labour of love is beyond me. People have been predicting the end of the world for thousands of years. I wonder what is supposed to make their “prophecy” so special?

      • Drained and Washed Clean says:

        The first time it was predicted was during biblical times! The disciple got it wrong for spaghetti’s sake! The guy who supposedly hung out with Jesus was wrong, what information do they think they have that he didn’t? It amazes me…

        Oh, wait….. Ramen!

        I sent them an email to ask what they were going to do with their worldly possessions. I told them that since I will not be caught up in the rapture, I will watch their stuff for them while they are gone. They have not emailed me back.

        • J. James says:

          I would not hold my breath for that one buddy.

    • TiltedHorizon says:

      I suggest we start buying up properties from all the Christians who believe this nonsense, dirt cheap. When May 22 rolls around we could be rich!!

      • Insightful Ape says:

        For some mysterious reason, they are not putting their money where their mouth is.

    • Michelle says:

      I just wasted 20 minutes of my life reading this. All I could do the whole time was shake my head at the ridiculousness of it all.

      And even if there WAS a hell, like the silly Christians say, then sign me up! All the drinkers and partiers will be there! Why would I want to be in boring heaven with no sex, drugs and rock n roll?

    People need to stop getting offended at every little thing.

    • TiltedHorizon says:

      I’m offended by that suggestion. lol.

      • opiesysco says:

        I Sir, am offended that you are offended.

        • Zuri says:

          And I am offended that you are offended that he is offended.
          That doesn’t even make sense…..
