Calling God?

The BBC reports on an art exhibition in Holland that presents a telephone through which people may telephone God:

"Dubbed God's Hotline, it aims to focus attention on changes to the ways Dutch people perceive religion. Dutch artist Johan van der Dong chose a mobile phone number to show that God was available anywhere and anytime ... Critics say the project mocks those with religious beliefs.

Forming part of an art installation in the town of Groningen, the voicemail message says: "This is the voice of God, I am not able to speak to you at the moment, but please leave a message.""

I wonder if they charge it as a local call?

The rest of the article is here.

    god says to me that god lost
    the cell phone really,
    and can't find it where it is
    cus god's home is so messy.

    god says tell this to the deuch
    as soon as possible.

    and complain that when god has
    the phone deuch never call to,
    but now of course lost the phone
    so the deuch want to talk.

    very funny.
