Why my cat Jensen is a better calvinist than most calvinists.
It's simple: he has never once arrogantly boasted to me about his election (by grace) as a creature before God the creator. This makes him the first calvinist who is truly consistent with his own doctrine (and don't bother trying to tell me that he could actually be arminian; he may be a cat but he deserves respect).
Jim West might counter by saying that it is in the nature of all cats to "see both ways before they cross the street, to your house, where they want to murder your children by sucking out their souls… " (http://zwingliusredivivus.wordpress.com/2010/06/12/more-evidence-that-cats-are-the-agents-of-satan/). But since when was this not consonant with good calvinism?
