The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


I Don’t Know If This Is The Way To Make Me Believe …

So it won’t come as a surprise to know I am not religious.

That doesn’t mean I don’t accept or respect the power and importance of faith … but where religion is concerned, I can’t buy into something that – from my perspective – has caused more tragedy and prejudice than peace and harmony.

But that’s just me.

Anyway, thanks to my inability to plan my travels with any degree of intelligence, I recently found myself getting up at 4am to get to the airport.

As I was getting ready, I turned on the television and there was one of those religious television shows that the networks often like to use to fill up time.

I’m sure they get given the content for free – or maybe the Church pays for it – but regardless, I find it funny that these shows are shown given the potential to alienate the audience.

Mind you, at 4am, the only people watching are druggies, travellers or zealots.

Anyway, as I was watching a man in a shirt that literally caused the television to shit itself, the weirdest ‘super’ came on the screen.

Yes … your future is in your seed.

To be honest, I'm not sure what the context of it was … maybe they were saying 'if you have a baby, you can live off the little bastard if you force them to get a job by the age of 5' or maybe they're promoting sperm banks and saying the more you wank, the more cash you will have to spend on the cool stuff coming out in the future – but on the bright side, it made me pay more attention to a religious show than I have done in the past 40 years.

Wow, maybe those TBWA disruption folks were right after all … except it doesn't make me want to even find out more about the Church, let alone join it.

But hey, adland doesn't care about that do they, except when they’re presenting a pitch.

Anyone that thinks this blog is serious means they’re an innocent new commentator who doesn’t know the hell trap they’ve just walked in to. Run ksfinblog, run before it’s too late.

Hello Ksfinblog, thank you for your comment.

I’m sorry for the responses you’ve had to your words. Be assured, it’s not personal … it’s how everyone gets treated on here. For some reason, this blog has morphed into a social club for internet trolls.

Don’t worry Rob

Excellent character assassination Andy. You’ve still got it.

Comment by DH

Thank you. So kind …

Comment by Rob

I agree with you Rob, if those time slots ran programmes for more niche religious groups there’d be outrage. They’d say the networks have given them an outlet to spread their propaganda or something similar. One persons religious faith is another persons persecution and all that.

I think you know you have taken the super on the screen out of context, but it allowed you a dig at disruption as well as at agencies who claim they’re all about business (in pitches and PR) but seem more about ads, so it’s all good.

Comment by Pete

You’re very feisty these days Pete. All OK?

He’s seen the light.

Fool.

Best comment thread in ages.

Serves you right for buying the cheap, pirate Filipino satellite TV, Rob. Half the bloody channels are religious propaganda paid for by the Roman church to keep the natives on their knees and off contraception. For them it’s brainwashing – for you it’s just the price you have to pay to get your HBO fix.

Comment by Ian Gee

Hang on … hang on … I saw this in a hotel, I’m no cheap ass. OK, I am, but when I’m home, the thought of watching television at 3 in the morning is not that high on my priority list.

But you’re right about the propaganda thing … drives me nuts to be honest. Religious jail which – as far as I understand it – is not really what faith is supposed to do for people.

Comment by Rob

Another proposition I can steal, thank you very much.
