A slice of silliness…

for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Eternal





“Hallelujah brothers and sisters, Joyful Jolene and Joyous Georgie-pie are here to en’ertain and inspire ya-all, hallelujah!”

Look at them all, happy-clappy, happy-go-lucky, happy little hearts!

“Hallelujah brothers and sisters, give generously, adding to this pot of gold guarantees you a key to the land of eternal happiness”

As they rightly say, ignorance is bliss, and the ability to perform mass hypnosis is a valuable gift that J and G-pie use to their financial advantage.

“Hallelujah” shouts Joyful Jolene as she counts their spoils at the end of another profitable day.

‘Hallelujah”, yells Georgie-pie as they continue their journey across their land of milk and honey, “brothers and sisters. we’re on our way!”.

    I had a friend who belonged to one of those ‘born again’ churches. Then he saw the house – er, mansion, the couple was living in and the Rolls they were driving. Need I say more?

    They’re day job must be politics. Snake oil for sale there too! You nailed it, Keith. They’re clapping all the way to the bank.

    The only charities I donate to are religious, because I don’t trust the secular ones at all. Just be careful which religious charities one donates to. Some of them (not all) are just as bad as the secular.

    I wish I could say this is totally unrealistic.
    Back in the 1600s Menno Simons said, “As long as the world hands out great houses and lavish living to their preachers, the false prophets will be there in droves.” Things haven’t changed. As long as people can be convinced they’ll ensure their spot in heaven by cash donations, one might add.

      Not a quote I was aware of, but it applies as much now as it did 500 years ago. Even today the vulnerable are easily sold a one-way ticket to eternity.

    Nice whimsical, comical and sadly true, parody, Keith. As you so aptly point out in the first sentence, they are in the entertainment business, and people are willing to pay to be entertained.

      …entertained on earth as they are to be in heaven according to those that profit. Thanks so much.

    Who dares to expose J and G , huh?
    “Oh, its Keith…we should buy him and his bistro when we had the chance!”

    😀 Loved the style you rip them apart, Keith!

    Onward christian salesmen!
    of course given that the most fundamental motivations at the heart of any decision to buy is ‘Fear of loss or Hope of gain’ the crowd that gathers at such an event doesn’t stand a chance.

    good Six

    There are way too many Jolene’s and Georgie-pie’s out there. Hoping they get their comeuppance sooner rather than later. Your stories are always entertaining. So well written!

    Delightfully satirical, Keith.
    Sadly it’s not only the TV evangelists who get rich while the poor starve, the same is true of most mainstream religions.

    They’re a dime a dozen aren’t they? Grifters gotta grift and you got their patter just right! Another good one, Keith. 🙂

    …on their way to the top levels of government, no doubt. Praise the Lord, and pass the gravy!
