Op-ed: Get on the right bus (by Peter Children)

How do we get to the promised land? You just need to get on the right bus. Let me warn you its not cheap. The fare runs into the thousands and you need to pay for it over a lifetime; are you interested? Oh, one more slight thing….there is no guarantee you will reach your scheduled destination. Now do you still want to sign up for this tour?

You sound interested; then to sign up for this trip you can go to any religious facility that offers eternal life. In there they have some one who will explain everything you want to know; there will be no printed brochures but they should be able to instill a visual image in your mind with little trouble. Much of that will depend on your I.Q. Because this gives new meaning to that “dream trip” you have planned for. You won’t be alone, trust me there will a lot of fellow passengers and the buses will be crowed.

You won’t need a lot of luggage or even toiletries, just one outfit will do. In fact all your needs will be provided during your stay in the promised land; room and board food and beverages…anything you want is all included in the price of your ticket. Did I mention a lot of your friends who themselves took an earlier bus will be there to meet you, they’ll show you what to do and give you directions.

Some of these religious facilities have huge overhead what with all the stain glass windows that need constant cleaning and of course high utilities bills mainly because of those 50 foot high ceilings. You know what Allient charges…its not cheap. There are however other benefits like all night buffets and Frank Sinatra concerts are free.

I don’t want to sound commercial, but I am a licensed tour broker with low overhead and I can offer you those same tickets at half what those brick & mortar churches can. My bus is just as comfortable and leaves on the hour promptly. Just send your ticket payments to me in care of this site and I’ll see to it you’ll get a good seat right up front….. Why pay more. Did I mention, we are authorized to accept all major credit cards?

    Golf season those are the most ignorant words ever written about Bookmeyer. You kiddin? You must have missed all the lying tapes on him and drunken brawls which make him nothing but a criminal period. He’ll find out soon enough.

    Not sure what you are getting at here Peter, but I doubt that your tour can provide me with a community to worship with for strength and guidance when I need it. Another thing, I go to a big beautiful church with stained glass windows and I don’t have to pay one cent, it’s free for me and they are just as accepting of me as if I was giving them thousands of dollars.

      I am happy for you Mike; faith is many thing to many different people. I had Faith once, I also had her two sisters, Hope and Charity…if you don’t believe that just ask around.

      In our yellow pages there are some 350 churches listed….why if we all follow the bible?

        I’m not questioning anything about you Peter, just don’t get the point of your story. Are you trying to get people to leave their churches? As far as different churches, people have many different opinions even on the same thing such as the bible, doesn’t make one right or all wrong, some even have almost the same beliefs just different ways of practicing them. I’m glad there are choices. If one set of beliefs suits you, who am I to say it is wrong? What I find ironic, is more and more people I see against organized religion are now becoming the intollerant ones.

      Mike my words were written with a “Tongue & Cheek attitude. Not meant to be serious. Because of my heritage I was rasised in the Orthodox faith…and it fits me well. I am not intolerant to any faith, only hypocrisy.

    In his same bus group you can even throw rock when you live in a glass house. And don’t worry about your skeletons in your closet, it is more fun pointing out others and belittling them. Also make sure you pick the words of his son that help you and hurt others, because your flaws are ok but others need be pointed out! It is all a pecking order, for better or worse.

    You should have also included the whole sparkly churchs with the pimp suits and “BIG” “Media presence” in this description.

    Seems Peter Children came to his senses and is not name calling Bookmeyer and Tornquist. Maybe now he knows these two are hard working public servants. Mayor is stay at home dad for two kids and runs the city, that says a lot.

      You are not going to get me to give the mayor a pass; he is in the bars at night getting drunk on his ass. He continually makes an fool of himself and the city. Turncoat lied on camera and now you want tp paint him white? I don’t think so. It is what it is and the two of them are what they are. Together both of us cannot change them.

    I heard the only outfit I need is a black shirt and matching sweatpants and the only fare I needed was a five dollar bill and three quarters. Wait, that bus left in March of 1997.

    Hey Peter did you finally get bored picking on the Mayor?
