You can't just go around calling people Shirley. Also, it would be an advantage if you enjoyed standing on your head.

I have heard rumours that smelly has parted with good money to get people to stand on his head.

I much prefer selected folk sitting on my face head, but that's not for public consumption.

I wonder if this con artist scumbag has managed to re-attach a few chopped limbs yet?

There is clapping, dancing, jumping up and down as he makes his way into the hall, flanked by bodyguards.

Such is the excitement that a few of the congregants - some of whom have been waiting patiently for five hours to catch a glimpse of the man - collapse.

But why wouldn't you? After all, this is a man who says he has cured people of HIV, made the blind see, changed the fortunes of the impoverished and, on at least one occasion, appeared to walk on air.
Isn't it strange how these jerks only seem to propagate in places with relatively poor educational standards - or full of terminally gullible jerks - much like the USA.

Ah, but, the real question is:-

Does christardology give rise to poor educational standards or does poor educational standards give rise to christardology?

Do I sound like a fuckin' people person?

The two are clearly linked, but I reckon poor education leads the way.
Kids are not trained to thing critically theses days - and faith schools need a good dose of TNT to help things along.

I've been pondering the above.

One of the issues is that Britland, minus the few, went PC quite some time back, in no small part, due to the 'loonie left'. Too many peeps took PC to mean 'criticism not allowed'. My contention is that if 'criticism' isn't allowed, it stifles critical thinking. Too many see the two as synonymous.

In addition, and this may cause offence in certain quarters, the quality of teachers and teaching has gone down the pan. The number of Britland schools in 'Special Measures' is way too high. In addition, and this is a double whammy, the quality of parenting has gone down the pan to the extent that 'parenting skills courses' are being run, ffs. I'm sure that this, at least in part, may be due to the breakdown of the family unit.

What am I rabbiting on about, ffs. Poor education is leading the way. I agree.

HOWEVER (there's nearly always one of these, isn't there)

Educational standards are falling in the UK. This should mean that christarology, particularly amongst the young, ought to be on the rise. Not so, except in one specific case. In general, christardology, particularly amongst the young, is seen as being irrelevant. Facebook, Twitter and SnapChat et al are seen as having far more relevance by and to the young. The Happy Clappy christards are the exception, particularly with the young. Numbers for this particular set of twats are increasing.

I don't quite know what to make of this phenomenon.
