"Jesus Loves You"
I know all 17 of you reading have felt an emptiness these last 12 days or so. Well feel empty no more ladies and gents I'm back from my Central European travels and ready to resume blogging. Tomorrow a brand new post! However, while I get my NY life back in order how about another sketch from my Portland Underground Showbiz Society Y'll days.
JESUS LOVES YOU
A woman stands on the corner. She hands out pamphlets. She is a Jesus freak.
JESUS FREAKJesus died for our sins! Atone! Atone.
(Francesca and Mavis walk by. Jesus Freak speaks to them)
Jesus loves you.
FRANCESCAOh, oh no he doesn’t. That’s an unfounded rumor.
JFOf course he does.
FRANNo, I swear it’s just gossip.
JFHis love is not gossip. It’s no rumor. We feel it everyday once we accept him into your heart.
FRANYou’re right. I am emotionally unavailable. None of my relationships ever work out. I have this big wall and I push people away…ah but ah trust me Jesus and I just not happening.
JFJesus loves everyone.
FRANWhat? Where did you hear that?
JFIt is his word. All are worthy of his love, if they ----
FRANThat two timing…Who? Who who else is he seeing?
JFHe sees us all.
FRANYou mean you too? I can’t believe. If he’d see you what does that say about me? That’s why he wanted to keep it quiet. It had nothing to do with his Dad’s temper and I my mom not being Jewish. He such a bastard. And you’re ok with this?
JFI love and accept Jesus into my heart.
FRANSo you’re not jealous?
JFJealous of Jesus?
FRANThat he’s with every-body-else.
JFThat’s one of the things I love about him.

MAVISFran. Fran you left your notebook.
MAVISNo problem Mrs. Jesus. Or is it Mrs. Francesca Jesus. Mrs. Christ.
(Reading the scribblings on the cover of Fran's notebook)
(she rips the notebook from Mavis’ hand. Fran runs away with her notebook.)
Jesus loves you.
MAVISNah, I’m not into do-gooders.
