If you're a member of the 800 Club, you already know how much fun it is to call tele-evangelists on their toll-free numbers. If you're new to this game, here's a way to cost those Nazzes (Falwell types) hundreds of thousands of dollars, and have a great time, to boot. Or should we say, to sabot. In the last year alone, Pagans, Gays, and others have cost Falwell alone nearly one-half million dollars, according to Falwell's own figures by calling the toll free number and hanging up. If you'd like to get in on the excitement, here's how to play. First, pick one of the numbers listed below. Dial and let it ring until they answer. Hang up. You've just cost them a dollar. That's a dollar they would have otherwise spent on squelching free speech, persecuting Gays, Pagans, and others, lobbying your representative in Washington, destroying indigenous cultures, and other Nazztiness. If you'd like to play the advanced version of this game, engage the phone operators in conversation. Every minute on the line costs them more money. Ask for free literature and have them send it to addresses that don't exist. If you've got a P.O. Box, get on their mailing list--it costs them a full $12 a year to maintain you. So call up often and ask for pamphlets. Be polite and sound sincere. You can use the literature they sent to fuel your fireplace in the winter or line your guinea pig cage. It makes for some spooky reading, too. Be careful, though. Some will want to convert you on the phone. Just say, "I'd like to read some of your literature first." They'll send it right off, and that'll cost them even more money. Or, just keep them on the phone. Read to them from "How to Make Love to a Man," or other piece of literary nonsense. They'll often hang on to see how the book'll turn out and each minute on will cost them more money. Remember to call often. These people are out to get you. They are not nice people going about their own spiritual business. It is their stated purpose to take over the world with their brand of religion, supressing your life and personal spirituality as they do it. Fight back NOW! Go ahead. You can do it. It's fun and it works. Dial a nazz today. And remember, this article is free to any publication or individual who wants to copy and distribute it. Give one to each of your friends (makes a great stocking stuffer) and send copies to sympathetic magazines and newsletters everywhere. The life you save will be your own! * Some numbers are only on during certain hours.
