One aimed directly at Scotland

This is quite an old one. Found it on Buchanan Street. We've seen fearmongering, we've seen dodgy science, and now we have Plan C - a badly implemented combination of religion and patriotism. Yay Jesuz! All we need now is a re-enactment of the Last Supper with the bread and wine replaced with Haggis and Buckfast.

Actually, now that I think about it, Haggis would actually make a good Last Supper substitute if you REALLY wanted to take the whole Lamb of God angle literally. "This is my body. Heart, lungs, liver, stomach and all."

Communion might get a bit awkward though.

But I digress. Hit the jump for the tract.

Hoo boy. Should have guessed it'd pull up William Wallace and compare him to Jesus. Both have had their executions re-enacted in graphic detail by Mel Gibson I guess.

Also, might not be a good idea to go with the "imminent return" angle when he implied and right out said a bunch of times that he'd be coming back within the lifetime of his contemporaries. "What a hero!"

When the tract refers to the "un-Godly powerful forces that reek [sic] hatred, prejudice encouraging bigotry" I think it's only fair to bring up Glasgow's shitty track record when it comes to sectarian bullshit, a wonderful clusterfuck of religious bigotry, misplaced nationalism, and football rivalry. Christian denominations are a lot better at fighting each other than they are at fighting the sins and injustices of the world.

Also, cross and thistles? Seriously? That's just tacky.
Oh all right, if you're going to bring up Burns' "Man's inhumanity to man" quote, then I'm just going to put this one out here as well

"More man's inhumanity to man has been done in the name of religion than any other cause."

Also, as childish as it is to point this stuff out, which was your favourite spelling error? Mine was "applis," as in "This applis to the church also"
