Tripping the Rift: Cultures: godfreaks

I would like to write that the godfreaks are the hippies of god. But they’re not. They got caught up in the religious fervor surrounding the man, and decided to take his teachings a bit too far. Which is pretty extreme considering how big the “big man” is on wrath, plague and destruction.

If you were to meet a godfreak in a pub, s/he’d be the crazy berk in the back screaming “repent now, god is coming” or some other ludicrous (ir)reverent saying. They’d prolly be wearing a sandwich board with a some irrelevant bible verse printed real huge on it. ex: “Numbers 26:51” (This is the number of Israelites 601,730). You’d never see ’em drinking, because “drinking is wrong”, but you could smell the stench of (Sterno) squeeze on their breath.

Godfreaks, have no day jobs. Their reverent rantings keep them from holding a job very long. So they band together in Church Groups for mutual protection and wealth. These godfreak group activities include: protesting stemcell research to cure deadly viruses and bombing abortion clinics. Their most recent protest was against the time flight back to the beginning of time. They were worried that the trip would prove that god did not create the universe. Their fears were grounded. on the evenings and weekends they like to troll the bboard at
