Seventh-Day Advent-Hoppists, Whitehaven

Sunday 30th July 2017, 4.10pm (day 2,166)

7th day Advent-hoppists, 30/7/17

Dialogue from Red Dwarf, season 3, episode “The Last Day”… I may paraphrase slightly:

Rimmer: I didn’t agree with my parents’ religion. But I wouldn’t have dreamed of knocking it.

Lister: What were they then?

Rimmer: Seventh-Day Advent-Hoppists. They believed that every Sunday should be spent hopping. They would hop to church, hop through the ceremony, and hop home again.

Lister: What’s that all about then?

Rimmer: Well, they took the Bible literally. Took it word-for-word. Only their version had a misprint. It all stemmed from 1. Corinthians 13, where it said “Faith, Hop and Charity; and the greatest of these is Hop.” So that’s what they did. Every seventh day.
