Fragment din "Scrisori de pe Pamant", de Mark Twain

Un fragment despre caracterul de psihopat al creatorului.

"I will tell you a pleasant tale which has in it a touch of pathos. A man got religion, and asked the priest what he must do to be worthy of his new estate. The priest said, "Imitate our Father in Heaven, learn to be like him." The man studied his Bible diligently and thoroughly and understandingly, and then with prayers for heavenly guidance instituted his imitations. He tricked his wife into falling downstairs, and she broke her back and became a paralytic for life; he betrayed his brother into the hands of a sharper, who robbed him of his all and landed him in the almshouse; he inoculated one son with hookworms, another with the sleeping sickness, another with gonorrhea; he furnished one daughter with scarlet fever and ushered her into her teens deaf, dumb, and blind for life; and after helping a rascal seduce the remaining one, he closed his doors against her and she died in a brothel cursing him. Then he reported to the priest, who said that that was no way to imitate his Father in Heaven. The convert asked wherein he had failed, but the priest changed the subject and inquired what kind of weather he was having, up his way."

Prin noroc am descoperit cartea "Letters from the Earth", de Mark Twain, online.

E o critica foarte eficienta si bine scrisa (ca doar vorbim de Clemens) a crestisnimului sub forma unor scrisori trimise de ingerul Satana catre colegii sai, de pe Pamant.

Sunt multe fragmente bune de pus pe aici, dar mi-e lene sa aleg.
