Miss Information is puzzled by religionIt was a busy Saturday at the library. A customer with his glasses held together with magic tape comes to the desk.
He wants Miss Information to know that Jesus loves her. Swell. Miss Information acknowledges that she's heard this before and asks the man if there's anything she can help him with. The man says he's looking for a gift.
A gift? What the fuck?
Yes, the man confirms. A gift. He is looking for a gift from the government. Miss Information offers books and information. These, she insists are the only "gifts" this particular government body has to give.
The man gets all snarly and leaves.
Miss Information doesn't get religion, but she's pretty sure that the minister of the church her mother attends would be happy to tell her that Jesus loves her without looking for a compensatory gift.
