The Exciting World of Churchgoing

I think the takeaway message of the above cartoon by Dave Walker is this: Churches regularly hold special events for the purpose of having something interesting and enjoyable to invite someone to who does not attend the church. The subtle message is that what church is normally like is uninteresting and unenjoyable. Now, having been [Read More…]

La-Z-Jesus

Oh, the symbolism of this item is poignant, even if it is a spoof: Via The American Jesus (HT Hemant Mehta) That’s exactly what so many Christians do with Christianity. It talks about being crucified with Christ, about taking up one’s cross, about selling all one has and giving it to the poor and following [Read More…]

101 Uses for a Dead Dalek

A friend drew my attention to 101 Uses for a Dead Dalek:   Which, I then discovered, was part of a series called “The Dalek Game” which involves replacing a word in famous book titles with “Dalek.” Here's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Dalek, which I think is particularly brilliant: There are many, many more [Read More…]

God’s Bible

Here’s another provocative cartoon from David Hayward: David points out that the Bible’s repeated references to “the Word of God” are not about something that can be called “the Bible.” This is true – and ought to be obvious – for several reasons. First and foremost, when the texts that eventually came to make up [Read More…]
