I joked the other day that a voice sounding like a Star Wars character claims to be God.
This came up because I was laughing at a documentary I watched recently that had two statements from the wife of an evangelical Christian minister. In the first, she admitted that whenever someone tells her that God spoke to them, she thinks that they are probably crazy. But then she said that she believes that God in fact speaks to her (go figure: everyone is crazy but me!). The best part: she said her prayers helped her daughter graduate high school. Now, I’m certainly not an expert in prayer and God intervening in the natural order of things and what not, but if it was me…I would have prayed a little harder and tried for straight A’s or something rather than just graduation. I mean you’re a ministers wife — aim high! Just sayin’. That poor girl gotta be thinking, “Way to settle, Mom. A little more effort and I could have gone to an out of state school”.
Anyway, I was thinking of this later and wondering how awesome it would be if god really existed and really talked to us, and that we could choose the voice. Sticking with actors that played characters in Star Wars movies, I would have to go with Samuel L. Jackson. The conversation would go something like this:

Otherwise, don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂
