How about, "Go with God but leave your money with me"?

"They say that Jesus died for your sins. I'm just doing it for your entertainment dollar".

I really wish I'd thought of that first.

Small change; he holds out a fist full of coins and anything smaller than a quarter just falls thru the hole.

I wouldn't do it for a general crowd, but I agree with just saying what they want to hear. I think if you see a religious tourist group with WWJD shirts and crosses, then saying a little line about jesus here and there might help you. Last weekend was pride week here in nyc, so I spent a little time here and there to badmouth the other guy in the park that was waving a bible and trying to save their souls, they loved me, he left, and my hat had twice as much as usual.

You have to be careful, I can't remember how many times I've yelled, "She's a witch! Burn Her!" and they have.

In Colorado Springs we have the birth place of "Focus on the Family" and New Life Church. We have talked about using the "God" thing to our advantage while performing, and came up with the solution that it was not worth it, because we need to be honest with ourselves, and it doesn't really matter if it would get us an extra few bucks.

Daniel Mooncalf 07-07-09 02:12 PM

Yea...
 
I've come to that conclusion as well, Lag.

If you want to make mega bucks you should say praise L. Ron! those scientology drones are rich as hell

Well, you could always appease the mormons by treating your show like a network marketing scheme... they've got BIG money.
