Thanks to Facebook’s ease of sticking similar topics in clumps, I thought this update from Christian John Shore (@JohnShore) was interesting.
Shore’s update reads, “Yes, I’m depressed today. It’s Good Friday. I’d like to meet the Christian who ISN’T depressed today. Wait. No, I wouldn’t.”
Immediately under his update, there were three people whom I know are believers who are happily wishing everyone a good Good Friday. The next one wasn’t depressed, but expressing what Easter is. And then the atheist under that says, “Fuck your Shit up Good Friday!”
And then perhaps the best update was from this devout Christian girl who wrote:
I’m loving the cooler weather! Grateful to be chilling out a little today, not rushing soooo much….Thankful for how the Lord has been supplying what I need….Looking forward to a date w/ Rob, Amanda, and Michael tonight….and to top it all off, I get to celebrate the symbolism of my RISEN Savior this weekend! Good times, good times!
So I guess my friends aren’t the kinds of Christians that John Shore approves of.
Seems a little weird for a liberal Christian to be so judgmental. But then again, I’m not surprised.
Check out a few of the funnies they’ve been posting.
“Whoever said nothing is impossible has obviously never tried to staple water to a tree.”
Grumpy old man says, “Back in my day the bathroom was used to take a shit. Not to take pictures.’
Scott Hilburn cartoon of doctor telling a pineta in the hospital, “Looks like he’s gonna pull through, but it must’ve been a pretty vicious attack … he’s lost a lot of candy.”0
Missing dog poster with $20 scratched out and replaced with $10. reward. Shows a pug. Reads “His name is eric and he’s an idiot. That’s probably why he’s missing. His face is like a skillet and he’s nude. (Sorry about his balls). Also I’m selling this drum I have for $20. if you’re interested.
12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD. 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.
14 “This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD—a lasting ordinance. 15 For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel. 16 On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat; that is all you may do.
Love has so many forms, right?
Can’t you feel the love that those first-borns felt all over on that beloved night?
It’d be like a lover slipping into your room for a midnight romp.
I’m going to get the ball rolling for Peeper Dee 97. And while I took this shot last night, it was after midnight on the east coast, where Sunny Lee is.
Maybe thems not the rules … but [insert Clint Eastwood voice] I don’t play by no rules.
And if you’re not privy to why it’s called Peeper Dee, imagine saying it with an Irish Brogue. Where “Dee” is a funny pronunciation of “Day”. Funny unless you’re Irish. Then you think it’s not funny, and you’re made because other people are laughing at you.
It’s a goofy way of saying, Picture Per Day, or Pee Per Dee …
The pictures don’t have to be full-on DSLR or point and shoot. They can be iPhone or whatever image taking device is in your hands.
For the shot above, I saw the guy, turned on Hipstamatic, walked straight up to him and snapped it. Never met the guy before.
