Washed in Blood

An acquaintance, when describing his religious beliefs, proudly claims to be "washed in the blood." I resist the urge to tell him just how disgusting a claim that is.

In many backwards cultures over the years, blood was spilled to make up for errors. And not just blood: innocent blood. How very revolting. How many virgins have we sacrificed? How many animals' throats have we cut? How many children have we murdered?  Washing things in blood is a disgusting and horrific concept people should be ashamed to accept.

Here's a related question, and an important one: Does washing things in blood really get the stains out? Or does it cause even worse stains? Think about it.


"The vast global Church/Mosque/Synagogue/Temple conglomerate... is the biggest business on the planet, bringing untold funding from hordes of gullible people, many of them extremely poor. It is by far the biggest confidence trick of all time."
