Yowl, And Ye Shall Find

Many peculiarities there are, among human religions.

Muslims run from pigs faster than Richard Pryor with his body on fire. Catholics each week munch flesh and guzzle fluids that have been laying around for more than 2000 years. Jews would rather hack off their hands than write out the full name of their god. Scientologists wander the land waving “E-meters” in order to get “clear.” Fundamentalist Protestants believe that their lord spends most of his time peering through a giant celestial telescope to determine whether human penises, vaginas, and sphincters are comporting themselves according to his Rules.

And so on.

Now, down in Georgia, is apparently a-borning a faith that requires adherents to journey out into their yards, and there bark like dogs.

Officers cited a man for violating the county’s daytime noise violation Sunday afternoon after people complained he was cursing and barking like a dog in his yard in the 100 block of Brentwood Drive, Athens-Clarke police said.

The ordinance forbids noise in residential areas that can be heard more than 300 feet away, and the officer noted in the report he marked a distance of 320 feet from the spot where he heard the man, police said.

The 35-year-old man denied that he was yelling, and told the officer some people call him “the holy lamb of God.”

He refused to sign the citation, police said.

Oh well. It could be worse. The world according to David Berkowitz, recall, involved a dog that ordered him to take human life.

    How is it humankind seems to lose all manner of real sense in the pursuit of religion? Is there no end to the foolishness?

      No. There is no end. The upside is that there will always be something to write about. : /

        Ahhh, yes. That cloud does have a silver lining after all. 🙂

        P.S. The latest format of WordPress sure is nice to us mobile users. Some may not see the change but it is welcomed in Possm Valley.
