“If you’re familiar with Winnie the Pooh (who isn’t), then you’re familiar with Tigger too…He’s the only one! And that’s precisely what he unabashedly declares when he sings his catchy little tune:
The wonderful thing about Tiggers, is a wonderful, wonderful, thing.
Their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs…but
The wonderful thing about Tiggers is that I’m the only one!
Those last four words fit Tigger just fine. But these are arrogant and misguided words when they come from anyone who assumes that their “holy” book or religious leader is the only one or the only way. Sadly, the Tigger syndrome (I’m the only one) appears to be the main ingredient of most religious brews. Common sense, however, should tell believers of these various faiths that they all can’t be right in their assertions of possessing God’s ultimate truth, especially when they contradict each other. But I guess common sense is no match for the “voice” of God that they all claim to be hearing. After all, once they have God in their pocket, there’s nothing left to discuss.”
Ernie Bringas, in “Jesusgate, A History of Concealment Unraveled”
