An Easter message from Throbgoblins International

The meek shall inherit the earth. Not the most accurate prediction ever made, eh? I would have imagined that innaccuracy in the predictions game would be something of a drawback - for a prophet. But apparently not. The great advantage of religion as a means of social control is that the culturally powerful can simply re-imagine the whole darn thing anytime they like, to suit this week's imperatives. For "meek" read " imperial superpower", and for "inherit" read "seize by overwhelming force of arms".
Jesus and Godot - they're not coming!
