Josh: What about… God?
Mum: Oh, well, I don’t believe in God, but, I don’t like it when you go around telling people that He doesn’t exist.
Josh: But He doesn’t exist.
Mum: Why do you bother then?
Josh: Well, the other day, a Christian politician said that God sent AIDS to kill gays. I hate–I just–I think I’m allowed to rebut that.
Mum: Well, that guy sounds like an idiot. You’re allowed to bother him.
Josh: Okay. Just, mostly, I’m just surprised that God couldn’t come up with a better plan than AIDS, you know? It’s not very efficient. It doesn’t just kill gays.
Mum: No, it kills a lot of Africans. But, you know, God is clumsy like that. He’s notoriously clumsy.
Josh: Also I don’t understand, like, they got AIDS in the ’80s, you know? It took God six days to make the universe and that long to come up with AIDS? Like, what was it about the ’80s? Think he saw George Michael and was, like: « No! This shit has gone far enough. AIDS! »
Mum: Not all Christians believe that. It’s just that one guy.
Mum: Jesus was fine with gays.
Josh: Was he?
Mum: Yeah, like, he hung out with all those blokes who drank wine and (LAUGHING) washed their feet. (LAUGHING)
Josh: Is that a gay thing?
Josh: Washing feet? I’ve never washed a foot. Is that what you think we do? You think we wash feet?
