All hail to commenter Paul, who has imagined what it might be like if the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) managed to get some product placement in one of Matt Groenig’s productions. Quick, someone have the UUA ad agency call Matt Groenig with these little snippets to be incorporated in the next Futurama movie:
Bender greeting visitors at a “Welcome Table” at his Unitarian Universalist church:
â€œWho are you, and why should I care?â€
Bender on an anti-racist Journey Towards Wholeness:
â€œThis is the worst kind of discrimination. The kind against me.â€
Bender contemplates the Ultimate:
God: Bender, being God isnâ€™t easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you. And if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch, like a safecracker or a pickpocket.
Bender: Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money.
God: Yes, if he makes it look like an electrical thing. If you do things right, people wonâ€™t be sure youâ€™ve done anything at all.
Bender, the Unitarian Universalist congregant:
â€œHey. Do I preach at you when youâ€™re lying stoned in the gutter?â€
(I made some slight edits for clarity, but the funny bits are Paul’s. Thanks, Paul! As a Futurama fan myself, I just had to post this on the main page.)
