You are funny Charlie. All these years and you still have people listening to your religious rant. And still in fear of the make-believe.
Charlie, I see that even though it is the 21st century, some people still need to hold on to ancient beliefs in imaginary phantoms, that are only within the pages of fairy tales. Laughable but ultimately disturbing.
