I have a dream.

I have a dream that one day there will be a People’s Church on one side of a road and a Robot’s Church on the other side of the road. I have a dream that though relations between the two will be tense at times, the bonds of ecumenical love will prevent any major conflicts from escalating and destroying the human race.

Yet I have a premonition that a tense stand-off might envelop the two churches, and after Sunday school one day there will a horrific explosion of violence as the robots and the humans fiercely debate their respective doctrines. The robots (whose doctrine consists of farming humans for energy) and the humans (whose doctrine consists mainly of not being farmed) will war in a war to end all wars, a war the survivors will of course call, “The Catechism Cataclysm”.
