Martin Luther and the Diet of Coke

Filed under: Random Stuff — Bob Gifford @ 2:14 pm

A post from Real Live Preacher about his imaginary conversation with Martin Luther (hat tip to Lutheran Seminary Life). Here is the part that had me laughing out loud:

Then I had a great idea.

“Hey man, SAY it!”

“Say what?”

“You knoooow” I say, dragging it out enticingly.

“Oh very well. I suppose you’ll pester me until I do.”

Martin Luther clears his throat and lifts an arm, affecting the posture of an old fashioned orator.

“Here I stand. I can do no other!”

“YES!” I shout, pumping my fist like Tiger Woods does when he sinks a long putt.

Read the whole thing — the moral commentary on our times at the end is right on target. This is what our era will be remembered for, not all the other usual targets of Christian right ire.

  1. This reminds me of my brother’s story about James Earl Jones coming to Yale. The thing the undergrads couldn’t wait for him to say was “Luke, I am your father.”
