Maybe that’s a bad analogy

Motel Messiah&#153 Doug Giles, who probably would have liked Terry Ratzman (devout/packing heat) up to a point, starts off with a self-admitted bad analogy:

If Christians would toughen up a bit, get out of the religious closet, follow their faith instead of their fears, and live their beliefs in a more robust way, we would once again change the face of this nation more drastically than Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeon altered his mug. Maybe that’s a bad analogy. But you get my point.

Which, of course, doesn’t stop him from making another:

God designed Christianity to be a 4WD spiritual vehicle with mudders, a truck that brings life to the outback. It is not a sensitive Miata that must be preserved from going offroad and into the bush. Quit treating the truth claims of the scripture, the power of the Holy Spirit and the compassion of the Creator like they are some fragile little Fabergé eggs that must be coddled, kept in the sanctuary and never exposed to the mean world.

…and another:

Martin Luther, the 16th-century Augustinian monk who shook all of Christendom like a bowl of liposuctioned fat…

Remember: the first analogy was the bad one. The next two? Write them in the Book of Doug.
