Rooftop Religion

Reader Matt sent over a couple pictures of neighboring houses in Peterborough, Ontario.

The first one wouldn’t be all that uncommon in parts of the Bible Belt, I would think:

The second one is a little more unique and amusing 🙂

I don’t know if they collaborated on that or if they’re passive-aggressively feuding with each other. But I fully approve of rooftop displays of faith.

"Definitely "depraved indifference" going on there."

    Well, at least Elvis really WAS alive at some point…

  • Made me giggle 😀

    And if Jesus is alive right now somewhere…is he some measurable distance away? Or in another dimension, another dimension, another dimension? Maybe he’s a Beastie Boys fan.

  • Valdyr

    Jesus is legally dead, I think he’d need to get a court ruling in order to have his credit cards reactivated.

  • Jay

    So if Jesus is alive then I guess he didn’t sacrifice anything for anyone.

  • The king is dead. Long live Michael Jackson.

  • Brandon

    Michael Jackson is more alive than Jesus. At least I can see him in a movie.

  • Richard P

    Well, at least Elvis really WAS alive

    And rose again too. I saw him working at a mac’s store just outside of Kelowna a few years back.
    I really really did, you could even ask my kids they were there.

    I think it’s just a spelling problem. They meant to say, “Jesus is a lie.”

  • Fastthumbs

    Jesus is most certianly alive… or at least he was a couple of years ago when he served lunch behind the cafeteria counter. Nice guy, although the Spanish accent was a bit thick.

    Hemant, did you hear about the Hindu guy over here in NZ who tried something a bit similar?

  • BathTub, it is past time that the swastika was taken back from the Nazis. They may have used the symbol but it doesn’t belong to them…not that it belongs to Ganesha either.

    Reminds me of a rooftop here that had something like “Jesus Is Lord” – only the middle ‘S’ was missing. I SOOO badly wanted to get on the roof and somehow change the ‘J’ into a ‘Z’ so the roof would then say:

    ZEUS IS LORD

  • littlejohn

    Yes, Jesus is alive. And living in my basement.

  • Zak

    I used to drive past those houses growing up and the signs haven’t changed. It must have been more than 10 years ago so I imagine the neighbours have gotten used to each other by now.

  • Alexis

    Look Igor, it’s alive, alive!

  • muggle

    Heh, too funny. It’s nice to get a chuckle out of two separate but equally usually annoying thing.

  • Joffan

    I’d be willing to go along with Jesus being as alive as Elvis. They’re both flourishing in the meme-osphere.

  • Doubting Thomas

    I guess I don’t really understand why someone thinks they need to paint such a message up on the top of the roof. I mean, who are they trying to convince, low-flying aircraft pilots? Or do they think that when Jesus comes back from heaven in the sky he’ll see who’s devoted to him by what’s painted on their roof?
