Religion is weird
The MSNBC evening political yackers depend on quite a lot of B-list advertising for their daily bread, but apparently I misperceived the financial clout of one of their steady advertisers, because Christian Mingle is advertising on the Olympics as well.
In case you don't know, this is an on-line dating service. Their motto is "Find God's match for you." They claim to have tens of millions of members, which is a bad sign actually, since one would presume successful members would drop out.
That aside, do people really believe that God has a match for them, but they have to pay this company to find out who it is? What did God do about matching people before the Internet came along? Why can't He work in more mysterious ways? I mean, all religious belief is ridiculous but this has got to be a parody, right?
