I just saw this cool article from the UK where a research study found that bereaved people were more inclined to turn to their pets than a priest. Now wouldn’t you love to see an article like that in the US? I’m sure for most of you this is a no brainer. What the hell could a priest do for you, especially if you’re in mourning? Well whatever he’s got, it pales in comparison to say the beaming face of your pet.
So this got me thinking of how many ways your pet is better than a priest. I jotted down a few. Although mine are dog-centric, feel free to add how your special little buddy or buddies are better than a priest.
Your dog will never rape or sodomize you or your children.
Your dog’s other dog buddies would never aid or abed such child molestation.
Your dog will never pass judgement on you.
Your dog will listen to your “sins” without requiring penance.
Your dog does not want all your money.
Your dog would never ask to be exempt from drunk driving laws on religious grounds.
Your dog would not offer false promises.
Your dog would never lie to you.
Your dog will always love you no matter what.
