Top 10 Reasons Why Beer Is Better Than Religion

I actually lost a few Facebook friends over this list (probably will lose a few more once this gets cross posted by NetworkBlogs). Of course, it may just have been the last straw amidst a string of irreligious comments by me.

But here's the thing - regardless of your beliefs about the Universe and our place in it - if you can't find SOME level of comedy and absurdity about your views.... well... you're just not trying. :)

Top 10 reasons why Beer is better than Religion...


10. No one will kill you for not drinking Beer.

9. Beer doesn't tell you how to have sex.

8. Beer has never caused a major war.

7. They don't force Beer on minors who can't think for themselves.

6. When you have a Beer, you don't knock on people's doors trying to give it away.

5. Nobody's ever been burned at the stake, hanged, or tortured over his brand of Beer.

4. You don't have to wait 2000+ years for a second Beer.

3. There are laws saying Beer labels can't lie to you.

2. You can prove you have a Beer.

1. If you've devoted your life to Beer, there are groups to help you stop.


My friend Randy on FB added one to the list - I actually WANT a beer!

(By the way, if you are not yet my friend on Facebook, I welcome you! I have new openings all the time!)

I don't like beer. May I substitute margarita??!!

Randy said...

I wouldn't fret too much about losing 'friends' that are so easily offended; those who really are your friends will always want you to be YOU... and this may be one of the milder irreverancies you've offed. I continually applaud your critical thinking, even (and perhaps, especially)when it challenges me.

We may not always share religious views, but we can always share a beer. Carry on.

By all means Don! I actually am not a big fan of beer... I only drink it socially.

Thanks Randy! I love your comment "but we can always share a beer" - words to live by!

I felt I needed to make a few corrections.
9. Beer doesn't tell you how to have sex. - No but it sure can tell you when your NOT having it.

8. Beer has never caused a major war. - Define war...cause it has started many skirmishes in my household.

7. They don't force Beer on minors who can't think for themselves. -Did you ever go away for college?

6. When you have a Beer, you don't knock on people's doors trying to give it away. - If i'm drinking I always end up knocking on a neighbor's door to drink with me.

Otherwise love the list.

Ha, I don't like beer either but got a kick out of your list!

Andrew said...

Heh! Good stuff Watchdog! Welcome!

Red - It is a borrowed list from the Net. Marcus Borg opened with this list when I saw him last weekend. :)

I can appreciate the humor even as I think you might be 'pushing the envelope a bit' but not surprised when I read that you heard it from Borg. I've heard him speak a couple of times.

And I'd certainly have a cold one with you also!
