Sometimes I think religion is like the high-school goof-off who sits in the back of the classroom shooting spitballs and trying to figure out ways to avoid doing the homework ... religion is just maneuvering and manipulating things so that the bad boys can get away with being good.
Getting away with stuff isn't easy, as any dedicated goof-off can attest. And being good is no exception.
Most goof-offs end up in the principal's office, serving a detention among the tall spires and wondrous texts of religion.
But a few slip through and actually get away with it.
If religion is your cup of tea, do your best to be a thorough goof-off. Don't let the principal get in your way. Goodness is not for the goody-two-shoes.
