Paris found Jesus!

Paris Hilton says she will no longer "act dumb."
That's hot.

The reality TV star and relentless publicity-seeker spoke with Barbara Walters by phone Sunday, a day after releasing a statement saying she hoped the media would focus on "more important things" than her 45-day jail sentence, according to ABC News' Web site.
Yeah... more important things! Like, drunk driving and people who've been killed by said drivers?

"I used to act dumb. ... That act is no longer cute," ABC quoted Hilton as saying.
The act was never cute.

Hilton has been saying that she is changed by her jailhouse experience, and she repeated that theme with Walters: "Now, I would like to make a difference. ... God has given me this new chance."
ROFLOL. I can't believe Paris is using the tried-and-true, "I found Jesus/God in jail." line. She must've started her twelve step program.

PM: "It was never cute."

Me: "It was never an act."

Lol. For some reason, I'm not at all surprised. I guess we atheists need to spend time in the big house to find God, since he seems to show up to people there.

She's only serving 45 days? Geesh, and here I was thinking they were putting her away for much longer.

Wow, only a week to find the Good Ol' Boy up in the sky. Huh, that's got to be some sort of a record!

I bet Pat Robertson's mind is going ka-ching! ka-ching! about now.

I hope there is a video...

That's terrific Paris! We're still not letting you out, though.

There was a picture up a few weeks ago with her and a Bible, strategically placed so you could see the title, as she went to court or something. Yep. Have to find Jesus.

Fubarmonkey:
It was originally a 45 day sentence, but the sheriff cut it in half to 23, then let her do house arrest after only a couple days due to "medical reasons", and the judge got pissed because he specifically said no house arrest instead of jail. So now she's serving her full sentence.

"I used to act dumb. ... That act is no longer cute."
Since when was it acting? This is just the first time she's ever had to actually face the consequences of her actions.

Am I the only one who, when I hear about jailhouse christians, thinks of the part from A Clockwork Orange(book or movie) where he revels in the darkest parts of the bible instead of the "good" parts?

Matt D. is right, I don't think it's an act.

Finding Jesus in jail when stupidity catches up. Just like my drug-addict uncle. Pathetic.

According to what I've been hearing, she's in a cell with clear walls. They say it's so they can keep an eye on her, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was at her request and she just wanted to be seen.

@Carlie:
She was also seen coming out of a Buddhist store with some self-help book. I have it on my blog, but I'm to lazy to search for the post.

So she found God in prison? Well that explains a lot about the state of the world. How long has he been locked up, and which crimes was he convicted on?

I think Pink says it best (kinda NSFW):

"Paris found Jesus!"

Look, Paris, just because your cellmate claims to be Jesus Christ back from the dead...

Oh well, why ruin their fun?

"... God has given me this new chance."

So God made her drive while she was drunk out of her mind so that she could have this experience?

No, wait, God told the Judge to send her back to Jail after she was confined to her home so that she would really learn her lesson. Yeah that's what happened, right?

Glad God is really making progress on those big problems like world hunger or all those wars going on that he has time to spend teaching Paris Hilton a lesson. Wait...

Just another scam.

I think I love reading here just for the irreverence!!!!

Thanks for some chuckles, esp. Paul! LOL

Good thing for Paris there are Prosperity cults. It'd be a shame if she had to do the whole poverty and charity and obedience stuff, dontchaknow.

The Anonymous Atheist said...

*IF* she did find Jesus in her LOOONG stay in prison, hey, there's more evidence that people create religion as a support system.

The Anti Atheist said...

Yeah, its a little lame.

But if she had been in an atheist run Gulag she would have been beaten and gang raped for even mentioning God.

So, it could be worse.

Yes. Because we all know that being an atheist automatically means that you have no morals...whereas, being a theist, means you would never beat or gang rape someone. *rolls eyes*

I love your attitude....
