    For a smile or two:

    a) http://markcbuffy.blogspot.co.za/2006/05/doublespeak-funny.html

    b) I don’t endorse this site, but I find this list hilarious:

    Typical doublespeak (trickery) during a Calvinist “church” on a Sunday: “Please join us for tea after the service.” And then, after the service, there is some tea and also some shady characters who are handing out Paul Washer DVDs, the blasphemer RC Sproul’s books, and lots of free MacArthur stuff.

    But seriously, as Andy has pointed out in #2 above, doublespeak is what these people do. It is a technique which they are taught for real. Oh, what upstanding, honest pillars of the land of darkness.

      Those are great. I’m pretty sure we all have encountered one or more or all of them at some point. I guess what they say is true: truth is stranger than fiction, and this stuff would make for good comedy writing if it weren’t so sad. No wonder Christians get ridiculed so much. Everybody else can see right through the farce.

        Andy, so many people live in bubbles and are so cut off from reality that they simply cannot understand that there is life out there. When atheists like Dawkins attacks “Christianity,” he is actually attacking the “god” of Calvinism, whoever that might be, you know? That “god” is a sitting duck, and I don’t and can’t blame Dawkins and friends for having a field day with fake “Christianity.”

        Just this past weekend there was an “interfaith Christian” get-together to “pray” for peace. Huh? Who did all those people pray to? They deserve to be ridiculed, sad to say. During this joke of an event, an Archbishop of the Anglican “church” proudly proclaimed that everyone (note: everyone) is a child of God. Just like that.

        But, yes, that second list is funny but true. “Doublespeak 101,” as Paul Dohse would probably say.
