Loren - nice video!
Here's a rather interesting speech before a city council, regarding gay marriage. Be aware - this guy is NOT what he seems at the beginning. Like the sign says: WAIT FOR IT!
Ya wanna see some Divine Interventions "blasphemy"? You'll ROTFLYAO! (IF you haven't already seen "Jackhammer Jesus.*snerk!*)
I don't know if freezing grape juice would make Jesus cold-blooded...he already was IMO. According to the myths, he rudely repudiated his mother in public at least three different times, so...I would say yes. Even without making any Welch's Grape Pops.
And...New Testicle Testament dogma says that God, Jesus, and the Holey Spook are all one being, so in his persona as the Spook, he knocked up his own mother. What does THAT make him? Eh?
OH! Halloween costume! Just a torn up, raggedy old sheet...The Holey Ghost!
How's that for "blasphemy"?
Sacraments - Quakers do not practice a ritual baptism but believe that life, when lived in the example of Jesus Christ, is a sacrament. Similarly, to the Quaker, silent meditation, seeking revelation directly from God, is their form of communion.
Dominic, those cookies sound really special! I want some! I wish I was artistic!
Sk8eycat, that's making me hungry! I love oyster crackers! Except I like them with chili instead of grape juice. When I was a kid, I used to split them in half and put a chili bean in the middle - tiny little sandwiches. Grape juice makes grate pops, tho - just freeze them on a pop mold for a few hours. Would that make Jesus cold-blooded?
Even protestant crutches have "Communion Sundays" once or twice a year (depending on which cult we're talking about.) Each pew-sitter gets a tiny thimbleful of grape juice and one of those little bitty crackers that are usually served with clam chowder.
THEY don't think about what they're really doing, either.
The only xian sect that does NOT do communion, or any other "sacrament," is the Quakers, or the Society of Friends. I don't know much about them, so I don't know why...
I just adore blasphemy. LOL
sk8eycat, you're right. Ask any "good" mass-attending catholic what Transubstantiation means, and I'd be willing to bet my next paycheck that 9 out of 10 have no idea what that means.
LMAO! Dominic, I love that!
What I've wanted to do for years, not for Halloween, but for any sunday, is have a large, colorful placard, with a bloody crucifix superimposed over a communion wafer, and captioned, "ARE YOU REALLY GOING TO EAT THAT?" And picket the local Crap-lick churches until they pitch a fit and fall in it.
I don't think very many, if any, people really understand that they are engaging in ritual cannibalism when they take communion. It even says so in their buybull, and the priest says so during the rite.
I once called the 700 club, when they were typically preaching against Halloween and claimed that I didn't realize that we born again Christians were not supposed to celebrate. I told the "councilor" that I had baked hundreds of cookies for the neighborhood kids. She advised me that it might be ok to hand them out since I claimed that I had decorated each one with a little Jesus on a cross, and red icing representing his blood bleeding down the cookie.
