.. I sang a song out of tune, what would you do?
.. you believe a tan shopping bag is your dog, it’s definitely time for an eye exam and a new eye-glass prescription.
I only bring this up after spending three or four minutes calling to Lulu (my pup), which led to frustration, due to her lack of discipline and response (to my call).
However, after throwing a wee bit of a tantrum (me, not the dog) because I was not being ‘heard’, I decided to get up and go to her.
Wasn’t I surprised when I realized that:
A. What I thought was Lulu was simply the shopping bag
B. She (the dog) was sitting on a dining room chair right next to me (the entire time).
Need I say more? No, I didn’t think so.
Life is a cabaret.
I believe that Jesus burning could possibly be interpreted as the first sign of impending doom (aka apocalypse).
When I first read this story I was immediately struck by it’s unending hilarity.
Seriously? Jesus burns?
Then I thought, is this akin to the burning bush? Will we all soon know more?
My bet is that there are hundreds of thousands of individuals currently preparing for the rapture. I imagine women all over the world, simply crossing things off of their *to do* list. Grocery shop? No, why? I’ll soon be floating up to the heavens, so I believe I’ll leave the food to the heathens below.
But seriously folks, I’m not the most religious individual, although I am quite spiritual (yes, there’s a difference).
My thought is this:
Instead of raising money to rebuild this monument (as the church has stated it will), why not use the $400,000 or so needed to clothe, feed and shelter those who are truly unfortunate.
I would garner a guess that there are at least a few thousand in their parish alone that could use a bit of help, compassion, shoes, a warm meal (or two or dozen) and a bit of kindness (in the name of Jesus of course).
Jesus, by all accounts, was a man who preferred to give instead of take. Who (I believe) would abhor a statue in his likeness.
Idolatry is frowned upon more than just a little.
Think Moses coming down from the mountain to find a golden idol. Shouldn’t these individuals be practicing what they preach?
Sadly I believe it’s just another case of *let’s skew our religion to our own needs and views*.
Am I surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes, surprisingly so.
So in closing I say:
Peace be with you!
