This Pearls Before Swine cartoon pokes fun at those who embrace religion only when it serves their purposes.
Goat asks Rat, “Are you religious?” “When it’s convenient,” replies Rat.
“What does that mean?” asks Goat. Rat says, “When I want to judge others or fear impending death.”
“I think that’s called opportunism,” says Goat. “Then I’m its patron saint!” exclaims Rat.
Ah, fear of death and judgement. Just what we need to make a better world. Not!
