Walks into a hotel.
He hands the inkeeper three nails and says...
"Can you put me up for the night?"
That was great !!
Thats just a little tacky to me . I am not offended , just embarrassed I actually found it funny . Thank goodness God knows I actually love him , even when I laugh at things like that . He has a sense of humor too .
Yes I believe , so what
And we respect your belief in a higher power and your appliance skills!!!
We are all so different , yet the same . God I love my CK5
3 nails, who the hell is going to hold up the rest?
"hey bill, I only have 3 nails, but can you hold my other hand?"
No pun intended !
You know, I never think of those originally posted lines as a joke, as I first encountered them in a dark work of fiction.
The main character encounters the final oppositional memeber after killing the rest. Upon encountering him, the final man exclaims, "Jesus Christ!" The main character repeats the joke slowly and kill him.
I appreciate Christianity mainly for how it has influenced the arts, though it damns them at times.
Kentaro Miura has a lot of good musing throughout his epic on the subject of the work's Christian based muthological religion.
What is the difference between angels and demons? Affliation?
Does man himself contain the only spark of god or non god there is?
Is God simply the good man does embodied in an effigy? How has that effigy been perverted? How simple can it be when all the layers are removed?
"God shows himself on the ground, these are his miracles"
art historians the world over cringe at the very thought of Christians. Whether it be protestants getting rid of countless pieces of art when they decided to split from the rest of the Church and ditch lots of religous imagery... or rabid Catholics covering up the pee-pees on statues in hack-like fashion... its all blastphemy.
Oh well, at least it wasn't them that blew up the Parthenon. I'm fully convinced that if there is a God out there... he is taking revenge upon Venice for their treachery by casting their city into the sea. He probably was trying to come up with a curse to lay down on the Ottomans... but then realized they are already living on the armpit of the world and figured that was good enough.
Yeah, throughout they've really set back and or limited a lot of art, but sometimes I think of all the standards in a lot of the art I like and wonder how it would be without the Christian influence.
...of course I'm more of a fan of "lower" art forms..
