You Could Make a Religion Out Of This

About

You Could Make a Religion Out of This is a quote used by Bill Wurtz in his video The History of the Entire World that became a meme in its own right, much like The Sun is a Deadly Lazer.

Origin

On May 10, 2017, Bill Wurtz uploaded “history of the entire world, i guess” as a sequel to his previous video, History of Japan. In it, he jokingly goes over what happened over history to shape the Earth. Whenever he discusses the inception of a new religion, he says: “You could make a religion out of this.” The video has over 21 million views as of June 6th, 2017.

Let’s Have Real Talk This Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day will be my first as a new mom. While this holiday carries new significance for me, it also makes me reflect on the millions of moms out there for whom the arbitrary recognition of Mother’s Day is a meaningless blip in their day-to-day struggle to stay afloat.

The Mother’s Day applause for the heroics, strength, and selflessness of moms on May 14th is deserved. But applause is not enough for us to succeed. Bringing my child into the world and raising him is the most challenging (and yet best) thing I’ve done. I had a relatively easy pregnancy, but an unexpected C-section extended my recovery time. Thankfully, my son was born healthy and continues to thrive. It’s been a fun ride of baby’s firsts – the first laugh, the first crawl, and the first time he slept through the night! But it’s given me a new perspective on just how hard this actually is.

You’ve been trying to do your penance for picking Palin and placing self ahead of “Country First.” Some, like me, have given you credit. Some will never forgive you.
