I need your Cooperation to complete this work
Picture a scene in your head. In this picture I want you to imagine God doing absolutely filthy despicable things to people, animals or whatever upsets you the most. Really filthy things, ones not fit for repeating. Go on search the Bowels of your brain. Don’t be afraid, the thoughts are in there, because God put them there. I want you to hold on to those terrible visions. Keep holding them in your head.
Now walk down to the nearest Garda Station and report this blatant piece of blasphemy to the authorities.
