Atheletes struggling to complete a feat of endurance are exactly like Christians.

Some weak minded, spiritually direction-less failures give up on Christianity at the very first hint of how stupid it is. But we Christians are determined. We have the courage to keep the faith. No matter how absurd, pointless and sectarian it is shown to be, we obstinately refuse to acknowledge that we’re a bunch of deluded fools.

That’s what makes us so much better than you.
