Teen Devotionals

Some examples of the curious genre of the Teen Devotional:

Can I Be a Christian Without Being Weird?
I'm not sure, but what I want to know is, can I believe in giant space lizards without being weird?

Fifty-six Days Ablaze
Fifty-six days burning in the fiery pits of Hell!

Anybody Can Be Cool-- But Awesome Takes Practice
These guys are still practicing.

If God Loves Me, Why Can't I Get My Locker Open?
First your locker won't open, then you get left behind during the Rapture. Sucks to be a Christian.

Tarvuism

You may not have heard of Tarvuism before, but it claims to be one of the oldest and largest religions in the world.

Tarvuists worship Tarvu, who came to Earth over 3,000 years ago as a tiny baby boy. After landing in the oceans, and swimming with Oobu the holy octopus, Tarvu came ashore and lived amongst men and women so that he could teach them "to live".

It's easy to become a Tarvuist. All you have to do is say Tarvu's prayer:

Tarvu tarvooti,
Oboonoo cTooti,
Mimmin O'tibbi noonah,
Mdfitty fitty noonah,
Arvu immentiBarvu,
Tarvu.

Candy Canary

Evangelical female body-builders. I don't believe my brain has ever had cause to assemble that phrase before. But then I learned of Candy Canary.

Summum

image
Most Supreme Court cases are as dry as a particle-board sandwich. But not the one you can read about here. That's because this case involves a genuine wackjob cult named Summum, which believes, amongst other things, in sacred mummification of pets.

A visit to their site will be time well spent.

The Elves of Iceland

Maybe the Icelandic banking meltdown can be remedied with pots of elvish gold.

Careers for Christian Youth

My pal Ed Morris sent me this 1956 book. Was there ever such an innocent time? The text is quite reasonable and sensible and not overly evangelical, so I could not really find any silly passages to scan. The dreamy cover will have to suffice.

Shamans in Peru

Time to look at some curanderos. The best part comes after the three-minute mark.

After this, a little sliver of the True Cross looks kinda paltry....
