I'm more worried about aliens in flying saucers with death rays.

They should become Bapist Buddhists (cf. Anglican Muslim priestess), so they can benefit from the separation of church & state.

I, for one, welcome our new alien overlords.

So... after you're reincarnated, do you have to re-apply for the license for the next time around?

(I can't take credit for that. I posted this on a bulletin board I frequent, and that was one of the replies). LOL

Sorry, but somebody had to say it.

What is sad is that the Buddhists and the communists are both lost and are grasping at something that will fail them. We should pray for the Christian church in China to continue to flourish.
