I know I’m harping on an Adam Sandler movie here, but do they really expect people to believe you could get a sweet Chewie mask like this out of a claw machine in an 1980’s arcade?

Having hung out in many an arcade in that era, I don’t think so!

Sure, but only if you defeated Polybius first and immediately ascended to Arcade Godhood.

<em>An Alien Burned the Church</em> - an original short film
Time

I’d love to write this out to possibly being a feature length work someday, but the plot is so… weak? that I just don’t see it happening. Also, I gave it to a few friends to read and they told me it was funny, so I’m glad they liked it, but they like it in a way that is not at all what I was going for. I’m not sure what to make of that.

Somehow I doubt that.

Historically speaking, the Church has always been pretty Catholic, and the Protestant Reformation was revisionist, not based on any solid historical grounds. Sola scriptura is an entirely Protestant invention, for instance, and has no basis in either history or Scripture. There is no historical justification for much Protestant doctrine.

Question: do you believe Protestants can go to heaven?

This is probably the most comprehensive explainer I’ve read on our kiddie concentration camps.

And here’s a timeline of our disgusting history of poor treatment of immigrants.
