Are You Following Jesus This Close?

June 4th, 2014 Viewed 1112 times

In response to the bumper stickers that ask this question, Jon Acuff quips:

Or perhaps it’s just the opposite, you actually want me to back away from you in traffic and tail gait Jesus instead. Is he commuting today? Are you intimating that should I but crane my neck I might notice him in the right hand lane, driving, what I can only imagine is a burro, and I should follow him instead? But that’s unlikely, because once you’ve ascended there’s no way you’re driving on the Interstate again. You think Elijah or sah, whichever one got the fire chariot ride, is ever getting in a Kia after that? You can’t Sorento after you’ve fire chariotted.

Of course the Party Crashers had no business being in the White House without an invitation, and they should have been excused the moment that they were found to be off the guest list…

I’m still not sure how these types of people keep getting in?

Legalize Slavery Now!

Banning Abortion would not stop abortions from happening, we’re told, because they’ll happen regardless.  Wouldn’t we prefer that abortions happen in doctor’s offices instead of back alleys?  Wouldn’t we want to keep people that want abortions safe?

What if we applied this logic to other societal ills—like slavery?

President Obama’s Teleprompter Malfunctions

November 28th, 2009 Viewed 1808 times

Not as big a deal as it was a few months ago, but here’s a funny take on President Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter.  I especially find funny the part where he “loads the teleprompter to lecture his speech writers” and “the caps key got stuck so he ended up shouting the whole speech.”

Back in 1948, after World War II, the winners of that war created a state around the home land of Israel for the displaced and persecuted Jewish people.  The people that were in that land—those from Egypt and Jordan—were told to leave.  Except their home countries would not take them back, figuring that they were going to retake the land back from their Jewish brothers.

Federal Government Announces Gas-Guzzler Initiative

May 7th, 2008 Viewed 2495 times

Hummer WASHINGTON – Faced with the rising cost of gas, the Democratic Presidential candidates announced their support for a bill that would create a new program for those owners of SUVs, trucks and vans who have suddenly found themselves with vehicles with poor gas mileage and the inability to sell them.

The bill, nicknamed “Too Much Car”, would give tax credits for car dealerships that trade these larger vehicles for small or midsize cars– and double the credit for those who trade for a hybrid.

Obama told reporters Tuesday that Wright’s comments do not accurately portray the perspective of the black church.

“The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago,” Obama said of the man who married him.

How would you have worded this better?

Top 10 Modesty Issues for Men

September 10th, 2007 Viewed 2003 times, 1 so far today

Heawy SportsmannMin’s been so serious lately, I thought I would drag thoughts in a little more light-hearted direction. So with tongue fully in cheek, I present the
Top 10 Modesty Issues for Men

  1. No Speedos. ‘Nuff said.
  2. Except for professional athletes, No Spandex!
  3. Midriff baring t-shirts were only acceptable for 80’s male aerobics instructors.
  4. Visible tattoos are fine for ex-military personnel. Only.
  5. Earrings are great – as a gift for your wife.
  6. If your hair is over twelve inches long, you had better have a Nazarite vow ongoing.
  7. Jeans with holes are perfectly acceptable up to a maximum of three holes.
  8. If you ride a Harley or a horse, leather pants/chaps are in, otherwise they are just plain out.
  9. Wearing nylons is only acceptable during the commission of a bank robbery. (Not that we advocate such.)
  10. Pants were meant to be worn with belts (or suspenders if you are a circus clown).

Feel free to add any issues I may have overlooked in the comments.
