The Raving Theist

Dedicated to Jesus Christ, Now and Forever

And the Winner is . . .

April 5, 2004 | 7 Comments

The winner of the Atheist Jesus Poetry Contest is . . . Three Dog Blog! Cass Brown of Cancergiggles will official die for them, and, in fact, is dying from them as we speak!

In announcing his selection, Cass notes that”[o]n reflection I did actually expect anyone entering such a competition to have a blog spouting vitriol and bitterness against just about everything that moved.” Did 3DB measure up to these negative expectations? Go to Cancergiggles to read Cass’s choice words about the site for which he is giving his very life!

And now, for the deathless (deathful?) winning verse:

That Cass Brown, known as Atheist Jesus,
Has cancer does not really please us.
But if godless he passes,
From this world full of asses,
Then his chance for real peace just increases.

The Raving Atheist vows to die for the remaining contestants, but not so soon. Their submissions will be published tomorrow.

    Good Luck Cass, Try and stay the Atheist carpenter, with a handy party trick when they run out of wine, for as long as possible.

    good choice, cass…..elegant, simple, to the point and funny…..
    imagine is this contest were in a religious blog….
    “the sweet angel will carry you on it milky white wings to heaven,
    where you will meet face to face with…..”
    or something as stupid as that…..
    can you post all the entries or should we ask TRA to do it here?

    Eva, I think they might have an issue with writing poetry for AtheistJesus on a religious blog, well a christian one anyway. The alternative would be writing for a “ChristianJesus” and I think that might cause even more of an uproar!

    hmmm…well, yes, redfred…you are right….
    but imagine, if the contest was to write a poem for cass, assuming he is religious, in a fundie blog….?
    it could go something like this:
    “your sinning ways must have caused your condition,
    t’was the accumulation of bad your omission…..”
    or something like that, what do you think?

    I’m sure they would have plenty to say, one of my previous jobs was to intercept junk interoffice mass emails, you would be amazed how much religious crap there is flowing through an office email system, I would just consign them to the vomit bin.

    The dogs over at Three Dog Blog are very honored to have won this prestigious award. I hope to get a chance to exchange some info with Cass. We had fun with it, and we are getting ready to include the “Cass Brown is dying for this blog” in our banner.
