All Writers Go to Hell – Let’s Have a Party

Now – for the Bizarro!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately of hypocrites and characters with what can only be described as a personality disorder. Patrick Bateman from Brett Easton Ellis’ American Psycho comes to mind. Not as a hypocrite necessarily but as a memorable character with a severe case of “Who the f@ck am I?”

I’ve been crazy busy this past week gearing up for the re-release of my Biblical FanFiction, TORN – a YA paranormal filled with angels and references to the Original Fall.  I didn’t want to miss my post this week but instead of my usual crazy literal take on Bizarro Bible Stories, I figured we could play the caption game!

Once again, I’m scratching my head. There is just so much in the Bible that confuses me. Sure, a number of strange stories have obvious morals – like when Onan was struck down for an inaccurately perceived bout of self pleasure – moral of the story? Don’t self pleasure. Okay, I get that. But the story of Lot and his daughters kind of freaks me out. Was it because he had , only 30 lines prior, offered them up to an angry rapist mob? (Who, by the way were not interested.) Was it because their mom didn’t listen and was turned into a pillar of salt? Were they bored? What lesson am I supposed to be learning? Gah! Honestly, sometimes I feel like:

Apparently I am going to Catholic jail. Or purgatory. Or hell. Or wherever good Catholic -school girls who take it upon themselves to question, even re-write (the horror!) the biblical stories thrust upon them by well-intentioned, ruler wielding nuns, go.
