I’ve had my digital camera with me in the car the last couple of days and as I’ve been tooling around going to and from work I’ve come across a couple of things promoting Christianity that I found somewhat amusing so I took pictures of them.
The first is a car that was stuck in front of me during some serious stop and go traffic (more stop than go it seemed) on the way into work the other morning. The owner of the car had a vanity license plate made up that could’ve been interpreted a couple of different ways. Here’s a snapshot of it through my dirty windshield. Click it for a bigger version:
The other one was a billboard promoting the Episcopalian denomination of Christianity that apparently thinks God is made out of diamonds…
I’m still not entirely sure what message that billboard is trying to get across between the text and the images it contains. Are they suggesting that the Baptist God is only temporary or that the Catholic God will expire after awhile? Are they suggesting that God is an attractive bald man who likes to make out with attractive young women? Maybe the woman is supposed to represent Mary and she’s laughing because God just told her he was going to knock her up and she thinks he can’t possibly be serious because she’s already married and the age difference between them is just astronomical anyways. Sure, she thinks to herself, he SAYS he’ll help support the baby, but he’ll probably turn his back on him when his kid needs him the most. No thanks!
