Jesus Goes to Georgia
“And if a man smites you on the cheek, I say to do return injury for injury in kind. Not an eye for an eye, but verily repay a slap aÂ tight clusterÂ about the bowels.
Stand your ground, ye peacekeepers, ye armed sergeants of my flock; be vigilant less thine enemy concealeth. Listen: let not the sun go down upon thy sidearm til thou hast wreaked vengeance and holy justice upon the heretic who insults thy sports team!”
“Prayest thou fervently and loud in public places, even as ye have heard me pray, saying:
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for I am arm-ed; my piece and three 10-clips, they comfort me.”
WWJD? Really? Do we honestlyÂ think that Georgia church-folk (and other churched brethren and sistren widely scattered about amongst us) really think they are Christ’s messengers on earth, doing to others before they can do to us?
Mind the Baptists in some southern quarters. If they can’t save your soul, they might just decide you don’t warrant any more of God’s grace and send you on to a very hot place.
It is a hard, hard time to call one’s self a Christian when this–and so many more bad examples make such easy work for Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher. The faith is getting a lot of well-deserved contempt, and the “liberal media” does not have to make this stuff up.
Sorry, Jesus. I think you probably had something else in mind with the turn the other cheek thing.

[su_note note_color=”#e1ded8″ text_color=”#49491a”]NOTE: this image of Christ (the REAL Jesus from Warner Sallaman’s official portraits) with a gun belt and holster under his flowing white robes came to me for some strange reason while I was in the shower. The absurdity of it required I create the bizarre jolting image in my head. [/su_note]
