Chicago officials have turned off a light that was casting a shadow which some believed to look like Jesus:
Just out of curiosity... what does it say about public safety if someone trips over something in the dark? I'm always curious about people who claim to see images of Jesus in places like shadows, water stains and moldy cheese sandwiches. How do you know what qualifies as looking like Jesus? No paintings exist from his time... and no... this doesn't count. I suppose you could go off the Shroud of Turin... but I have a strange feeling that people willing to stare at a sidewalk for hours on end probably haven't seen the shroud. Maybe I'm just being mean to the faithful. The people who claim to see images of Mary are even stranger to me because there is no Shroud of Mary, or anything equivalent.
If I don't post anything by tomorrow night... you'll know I'll have been struck down by lightning... in which case you can ignore everything I just said.
Not ignore...repeat. That way I can end up where you do and can continue to read what you post there.Post a Comment
