966 - Converting to Another Religion

January 20th, 2014

Episode 33 of 489 episodes

Changing religions is not like changing your clothes. Or is it? Find out in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:18 Explanations: 3:30 Fast dialog: 17:26 Debbie: Okay, I’m off. I’ll be back around eight o’clock. Marcelo: Hey, where are you going in such a hurry? Debbie: I’m going to my religious education class. Marcelo: Religious education class? What’s that about? Debbie: Well, I’ve decided to convert to McQuillanism. Marcelo: I’m not familiar with that denomination. It is Christian, isn’t it? Debbie: No, it isn’t, but there are some similarities in the spiritual teachings between McQuillanism and Christianity, but we have different ways of worshiping – different prayers, hymns, and rituals. Marcelo: It doesn’t sound legit. Are you sure McQuillanism isn’t really a cult? Debbie: Of course not. My spiritual leader has been tutoring me on the tenets of the faith so I understand it, but I can see why you’d question it, since you don’t know anything about it. Marcelo: Well, as long as you’re satisfied. Debbie: I am and I can’t wait to become a full-fledged McQuillanite. McQuillanism is a little unconventional, but we take our faith very seriously. Marcelo: Have it your way. What’s that you’re carrying? Debbie: It’s a cat costume. As I said, we do things a little differently. Marcelo: I’m sorry I asked. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
