The Mark Of The Beast

.image
NewDealDesign, a design house out of San Francisco, is behind an idea for implanted tattoos that carry information about the wearer that could be exchanged by touch. The Bible has long been quoted about the mark of the beast and the Anti Christ being from the Middle East, guess where the CEO of the company is from, just sayin'.

Virgin Mary Barbie Doll

Created by Argentinian artists Pool Paolini and Marianela Perelli as part of a "Barbie, The Plastic Religion" exhibit. Their idea was that, "If there’s a Barbie doctor, a teacher and a police officer, why shouldn’t there be a Virgin of Luján Barbie?” So they've created 33 different Barbie and Ken dolls portraying various religious figures from Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam. Obviously controversy has ensued. More info: patheos.com, metro.co.uk

Beverly Massegee and Erick





image

Evangelical ventriloquism: I tend to suspect no one does it better than Beverly Massegee. (Ie, no one else does it at all.)

I could not find any clips of her and "Erick," so you'll have to content yourself with her "singing."

Fighting Ministers


Episcopal ministers participating in role-playing exercises in order to learn how to be more assertive and not always be "knuckling under to overbearing parish members." Here they're participating in the hostility exercise, acting out how an argumentative church group might behave. Source: Life - May 19, 1958

God’s Cartoonist



Everything you ever wanted to know about the famous Jack Chick and his pamphlets.

Pot-Smoking Jesus

An ad by a Seattle burger restaurant, inspired by the fact that Easter Sunday is on April 20 (4/20), which is a special day for cannabis enthusiasts.

Of course, some people are already saying that the ad offends them. But in the ad's defense, there is a long-standing argument that Jesus and his disciples probably were cannabis users. Though I doubt that argument is endorsed by the Vatican. [mynorthwest.com]
